    Cozy, but needs a few basic (and inexpensive) fixes

    The place is cozy -- obviously not a new building, but it's has a clean and modern feel. Staff is friendly. The single room is tiny, but even at my height (6'3) it was fine. Good location, a short walk to the city center.

    Some basic, cheap maintenance issues need to be taken care of: - The mattress was not in great condition. It tilted noticeable to one side, which is particularly an issue because I'm a side sleeper -- so on my preferred side, I felt I was tipping downhill. - The shower handle and head sprayed in some random directions. A bit of an unpleasant surprised when I turned the faucet on. - One of the bathroom lights (over the shower) was out, and some of the fixtures needed repair or replacement. - I was on the top floor, and the wifi signal was basically unusable there. - Beware that, as is standard in British hotels, you don't get a sheet, just a blanket -- too hot during the summer. Also, there's no AC, so you have to rely on an open window to cool off. If they could take care of these issues -- which would not cost much! -- I could recommend this place, but as-is, it's hard to.

    Staff were very pleasant. Close walking distance into Oxford

    The bedroom was tiny and the shower room smelt stale. The house was 'tired' and there was no hot water in the sink(didn't try the shower)

    The room was clean and obviously recently renovated. However, it was very, very tiny. Breakfast service was fine. Location is fine, 15 min walking from the High Street. Wireless internet service was fine.

    Checking in very poor - nobody was there, although booking was made one month in advance. By pure chance contractors who renovated a room has left front doors opened, otherwise I would have to wait on the street with my luggage until owner comes back.

    The owner was extremely warm and friendly, as was the service.the roos were impecably clean and newly decorated, and very pleasant.

    the one draw back was reservation times being limited. One has to call when you arrive at the door as the owner lives somewhere else. For me with a Belgian tel. this was awkward, as it would be for all non-british residens. I dont know what the solution could be!

    Everything you can expect from a good B&B. Very good location: not far from the centre of Oxford in a quiet street.

    1. Close to the center (7-10 min walk). 2. Staff. 3. Breakfast (you can choose between continental or English). 4. Except for the small problem with the overday parking, everything was ok.

    1. Though the nearby parking is promised, you will have to put your car into park-and-ride parking place (approx. 2 km southward), which will take you some 15 minutes (including several bus stops). During night, you can leave your car in front of the guest house or in the nearby 2hour parking (night is free).
