A nice hidden gem in Oxford
Ridings House is great if you want to spend a few site seeing days in Oxford and want a nice and quiet place to stay. The home has some vintage touches such as the skeleton key for your room door and the carpeting. I stayed in Room #1 which had a sink. Though small, having a sink to freshen up and a bay window gave the room size & efficiency. The room had plenty of outlets and a closet cabinet. The shared bathroom is clean and accessible. The living areas are VERY NICE and more modern. There is a nice back yard space as well that gives you the feeling of being one of the locals because it has a view of the neighboring homes. Fit walkers can easily walk down the road to the city center to access all the tourist areas. The best nearby food options may be the grocery store rather than the two restaurants 5 minutes away--that is unless that pub gets more waiters. George was very nice and helpful, however, it would have been nice to know that he does not stay at the property and you would have to call when you arrive so he could let you in. If you're from out of the country and don't have phone service this could be a problem. The area is quiet and within walking distance from a park that is excellent for young children. The location of Ridings House is pretty great because you can literally walk down the street right into the Christ Church area of downtown Oxford passing the Alice and Wonderland shop, a Red Bus stop, and a few boat restaurants on the way. Best of all FREE WIFI!!

Oxford centre with parking!
Great location, just 10 mins walk into the city centre. Parking very useful in Oxford. Separate bathroom, opposite the kitchen was a little odd but it was still private. Nice welcome, and good garden to enjoy too.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Good location and price, but a true guest house.
Not bad for the price, but strange that there was no front desk, no real service except in the morning.
