We stayed at Gables for two nights. Our room was on the top floor (in the gables). It was quite cramped for floor space (a backpacker I am not. We had two large suitcases and little place to put them), but the floor plan was used nicely--there were two chairs beneath the window, and the shower was in its own little closet.
We chose to walk into Oxford city center both days, and it is not the best walk: about 2 miles along a busy road in a tired part of town. We could have taken the bus, but we were up for the walk and wanted to save the bus fare. The joke was, "We've got to walk until we get to where we'll walk for fun."
Breakfast was good, and there were numerous menu options. The host was very considerate.
This was the least favorite of the five bed and breakfasts we stayed at across the country on our trip, but it was still a nice place and a good experience.
