The guest house was convenient to our destination, and an OK walk into Oxford centre. Only 3 car parking spaces which was OK for us, as we had parked in a side street anyway. Good clean rooms & facilities, if a little in need of updating, but everything worked. We have no complaints at all. Nice full English breakfast, Helpful staff. For Oxford it is good value - eg. a third of the cost of a B&B at The Randolph.

Our hostess was very helpful and took the time to chat with guests. The room was nice although the door to the bathroom didn't close very well. There was no shampoo in the room but we had our own. I would suggest closing the window to sleep as the road outside can be quite noisy. We particularly liked the fruit at breakfast. The distance to city center is perfectly walkable - we didn't use the bus once.

We felt the welcome was friendly andthe proprietor Mrs Mansell was easy to get along with and spent time over breakfast chatting with us and the guest house itself was ideally situated for our stay only 200 yards from where we were attending a wedding reception. We found the property itself a liitle cramped and with wooden floors throughout a little noisy moving round inside. Its also right on a busy road into the city centre and as such you get traffic noise at night. That said for the one night stay it was ideal for us and the room had a very comfortable bed and tea and coffee facilities plus one of the best cooked breakfasts I can ever remember having. As a stopover we would definitely use it again
