We stayed at the Acorn for 4 nights in November. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Bus service is frequent and convenient. We enjoyed the breakfast. I would definitely stay here on any future trips to Oxford.

A really lovely place to stay with everything you could possibly need provided. Comfortable, warm, airy, spotlessly clean. The hosts are so welcoming. Very convenient for links to the city and Kassam Stadium. Highly recommended. A true home from home.
