Our room was a good size and comfortably furnished, it was bright, airy and very clean. The en suite was well fitted and again very clean. The location is quiet and a thirty minute walk along the Thames river bank will take you right into the heart of Oxford. We felt that we had received very good value and quality of accommodation and would certainly use this bed and breakfast again. 5/5
