My wife and I had just flown into London and rented a car to visit Oxford for the day. When we arrived we were checked in immediately and given a quick overview of our room, and when breakfast was to be served the following morning. We asked the owner some questions about the area and he was very friendly and...

First off, don't listen to the smarmy reports from 2016 summer travelers, especially the snark who called it "Bleak House." I read these before I booked and they sounded like someone with an axe to grind, so I decided to take a chance. I don't know where they were, but it wasn't here. This is a hotel formed from three...

Stayed for a single night in a comfortable twin room. The guest house is quite old fashioned but spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. There were tea and coffee making facilities. The shower was lacking pressure which is the only thing that a a little disappointing bu apart from that, for one night it was fine. The breakfast was...

Run by an efficient and friendly couple, this B & B gets top marks for cleanliness. Reliable wifi and a car park is featured. The signage could do with smartening up, it didn't give a great first impression. The decor overall is rather old fashioned (with too much brown gloss paintwork etc leading it a slightly depressing air). Our bedroom...

Rooms and reception halls are all very dated - however the rooms were clean enough and the owners were friendly. Decent value for money, free parking is very nice and it is in a good location to the city centre...just needs a big refurb.

A group of 9 friends on a budget stayed for 1 night and it was absolutely ideal. A great location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and cosy rooms, nice full English breakfast and a very reasonable price per night. Recommended.

The most impressive part of my 1980s style room was that I could touch all 6 sides of the room (including ceiling and floor) without moving. The layer of dust on everything was also nice. The service, without a smile, was a particular hit after a fairly average nights' sleep. Breakfast was mediocre but edible.

The Sportsview is in a great location with its own parking which is a little small but we didn't have a problem getting a space Great welcome and nothing seemed to be a problem. We where in the lower ground floor which could be a little dark
