Just 1.7kms from the centre of town, we found the Lakeside Guesthouse to have been an excellent choice. We chose to walk into Oxford but a bus is also available. The front-facing room was very quiet despite being close to the main road. The bed was comfortable and the room could be dimmed with the internal shutters. There could have...

Good spot to stay for weekend stay to visit our son. Short walk to city centre and easy drive in from the ring road. Parking tight but worked out ok for us. Good size room and bathroom with everything you require for a short break. Friendly staff and very good breakfast.

Firstly, the staff at the lakeside were so warm and kind, and were very helpful with any queries raised. On top of this, the breakfast gave you the option of fruit, yogurt, cereal, juice, as well as many cooked breakfasts incl. veggie options. The shower room seemed very modern, was very clean and the shower itself was incredible!! Only problem...

This Bed and Breakfast is well located on a major bus route into the city centre. If you are up for a bit of a walk it is not too far for that either. The room, en suite, and breakfast were all up to a good standard. The service was friendly and efficient. This will definitely be on my list...

Great location, in a lovely city. A 10-15 minute walk into the center, there is a picturesque walk along the Thames which takes and extra 5 mins but was worth it. Ample room to park, breakfast was lovely. All in all no complaints and would definitely return.

This is a great spot for the short or long term business traveller working in Oxford or Milton Park. Express bus to Milton Park X32 is opposite, 30 minute commute, GBP 5 return. Pubs and restaurants with 10 mins walk. Oxford town centre 15 mins walk away. Dani and Martin and family and Rosie the dug are welcoming hosts. Rooms...

Lakeside has its pros and cons. The clean up staff were very sweet, welcoming us as we arrived early in the day. Our room was on the top floor which I would not recommend. Stairs are steep and the bathroom is a floor level down (both rooms #5 and #6 have baths below) as well as small room size. We...

We arrived quite early but our room was ready for us and we were given a friendly welcome by Daniela. Our room was large, comfortable and pristine as was our bathroom. The location was only a 10 minute walk in to Oxford, ideal for us. We would thoroughly recommend the establishment.
