Value
Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the famous university city of Oxford. We offer good quality and value 'B&B' accommodation within, but separate from, a large family home. Our well-presented bedrooms include en-suite shower facilities. Our rate includes a 'Continental' buffet style breakfast. We try to accommodate our guests' requirements to ensure a pleasant stay. We are located 2.5 miles south of Oxford city centre. A bus service running every 20 minutes is only 3 minutes’ walk from the house, and will take you to the city centre in 15 minutes. If you have time we are only a short distance from the River Thames and a pleasant walk to the city centre. The nearby village pub offers good affordable meals, with plenty of alternative pubs & restaurants nearby. Local amenities include 2 village shops, post office and a laundrette. London, Heathrow, Shakespeare's theatres and Stonehenge are approximately one hour by car. Westgate & Bicester Village shopping centres are nearby.

The accommodation was really good. Onsite car parking and easy access to central Oxford by bus or a lovely walk along the River Thames. I got a lot of tips on what to visit. For Harry Potter fans in Oxford the New College, Christ Church College & the Bodleian Library, for Downtown Abbey fans the Highclere Castle and Bampton. Also Blenheim Palace is very close.

Part of our stay a tasty breakfast buffet style was offered to us with warm croissant/pain au cholocat every morning at our convenience . Our caring hosts gave us guidance,map and tips about the region and we really did enjoy our little daily chat. We would differently stay there again. Thank you very much for your warm welcome.

Thank you for staying with us again at Oxfordbnb and for kindly taking the time to complete a review. We are glad you enjoyed your breakfast given it is somewhat reduced from our normal offering due to the limitations created by the present problems. A little local knowledge we believe can help ensure not too much time is wasted finding your way around, although I often worry I talk too much! We are glad you enjoyed your stay, We do hope we will see you again. Kind Regards, Bryan & Siti Gillett Oxfordbnb

The room was comfortable, clean & with all the facilities we expect. Excellent continental breakfast. As much as we could eat! My 95 year old father was with us & the owners were attentive to his needs. There was a downstairs toilet which was very helpful so that Dad didn't need to go upstairs to his room.

At Oxfordbnb we had a great time. The service was great. Oxfordbnb is good located, not far from Oxford City Centre [and easy to go by car, bus or cab]. The rooms are really good and clean. All together: five star!

Stayed here for 2 nights with my daughter. Great location for Oxford centre. Bus stop 2mins away or an hr walk into town. Stayed in the family room, plenty of space, large en suite with bath and shower. Very clean, comfortable and warm. Good breakfast and hosts very welcoming. Would 100% stay again.

My wife & I stay here whenever we visit Oxford, the location is ideal, quiet & 3 mins from the nearest bus stop into Oxford itself, there is also a relaxing walk along the river Thames which takes about an hour. Bryan & Siti are lovely hosts, very welcoming & their bnb is in excellent order with all the necessary precautions in place for these difficult times. Our en-suite room was spotlessly clean & comfy, The continental breakfast is superb & provides all one could possibly want to set one up for the day. Bryan is full of local information & will always point you in the right direction should you need it. Looking forward to seeing you both again.......

We loved our stay here. The location is ideal; quiet but really easy to get into and back from Oxford. The hosts are superb; friendly and helpful but you don't feel hassled in any way. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The en suites are well equipped with great showers. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Oxford and would recommend it to anyone!

A friend and myself stayed here for 8 nights whilst in between houses in oxford. The bnb was very clean and the host Bryan was very attentive. Our room was spotless and the shower was really good! I would recommend this bnb to anyone looking for a place to stay just outside of oxford - it is only a short 15 minute drive to the local hospitals which was very convenient for us. Kennington is a peaceful village and we enjoyed a walk along the Thames.

I booked directly on their website for even greater value. This place is brilliant in every way - a spotlessly clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet room, super buffet breakfast and welcoming helpful host. Every facility, including a 3 minute walk to a frequent and speedy bus service into the city. Heartily recommend!
