Thank you. I had a wonderful time.
Ms Gwendolyn F

Good option for a budget break in Oxford outside of term-time. Short walk from bus stop with frequent services into the city centre. Shops, bars and restaurants also nearby. Room was clean and comfortable. Good to have a basic breakfast available.
Mr Bernard S

Great value for money. Room and surroundings were clean and the breakfast was exactly as described. Would recommend.

Mr Mark C

Excellent all ‘round! Lyndsey, the manager was very helpful assisting me with my luggage and pointing out directions to Summertown. The room was neat and clean and the breakfast just what was needed.
Ms Dona C

Excellent alternative for a cost effective stay in Oxford. Rooms were clean and pleasant ; booking was straightforward and porter was very friendly and welcoming. All in all a great experience and will look to do it again or look at possibility in other university towns/ cities.
Mr Jonathan kim H

Excellent accommodations. Lynsay is a great manager, very warm and professional. Can't recommend more.
Ms Frances S

Manager very helpful and accommodating. Great value for money. I have already recommended it to someone.
Ms Jo H

Gentleman who greeted me was very welcoming and extremely accommodating. Made me feel very welcome. The manager was also very chatty and friendly. Accommodation was basic but had everything you needed and exceptionally clean. Kitchen was who stocked and constantly replenished. I didn't realise there wouldn't be any cooking utensils though but all appliances were there, including iron and ironing board. Being single, I felt very safe and it was excellent value for money. Doors were a bit noisy if someone let go of it rather than close carefully. But for the money and what you got for it, it was brilliant! Will definitely do again.
