Oxford is an amazing city to stroll. Nice vantages around every corner. Loved our time in this university town.

Stayed here recently for two nights as my company was holding an event at the college. It felt like the true 'Oxford experience', with my room at the top of a steep staircase - but wow what a view from the room! Overlooking one of the quads and with masses of space and a surprisingly nice bathroom. The mattress was... More

Stayed here overnight, great experience, lovely room and breakfast in the main Hall. Overlooked the Quad with the Radclife Camera poking over the top of the college as we looked out of the window.

As another reviewer has mentioned Brasenose isn't the largest or the most impressive Oxford college, but it does have a reputation as the friendliest. It's not the oldest college, being founded 'only' in 1509, but it does have architecture from every century since then and also before (the college having been founded on the site of previous educational foundations).

Positioned very centrally, right next to the Radcliffe Camera. Maintained immaculately and very friendly to tourists. Modest surroundings, but still very impressive and charming. Check out the Chapel if you get a chance!

Beautiful, old college in the centre of the city, right next to the Bodleian and the Radcliffe camera. It is immaculately kept, and the porters are exceptionally friendly.

There's a reason this is by far the most applied to college - very quaint and beautiful; lovely hall and chapel! Might not be as ostentatious as some of the grander colleges, but certainly is more charming :)
