Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Friendly staff’, thoughtfully equipped bedrooms and a convenient location make this ‘boutique B&B’ a fine choice for visitors to the historic city. David Robinson is the manager. Spread over conjoined 17th- and 18th-century buildings, handsome, heritage-hued bedrooms vary in size. ‘Our top-floor room overlooking the Oxford Union was well furnished, though the shower-only bathroom was small. A well-stocked hospitality tray had complimentary bottled water, crisps and Kit Kats – a nice touch.’ In good weather, you may breakfast on the rear patio: there are seasonal fruits and home-made jams; Cumberland or veggie sausages; ‘nicely cooked eggs Benedict’. Light lunches are available, though dinner isn’t served – ‘but, as the hotel is so central, this isn’t an issue’. 7 mins’ walk from rail station.

Guest comments

'We stayed on what must have been one of the hottest weekends this year. Very friendly reception, everything in the room explained to us, including where to find the electric fan, Wi-Fi, etc. The room was on the top floor overlooking the Oxford Union; well furnished with two comfortable chairs and a fridge stocked with bottled water, crisps, etc. Shower room a bit cramped. Breakfast on the back patio, nicely cooked eggs Benedict; full English on the second morning. They do light lunches but not dinner, but there are a number of reasonable restaurants nearby.
