Great Guesthouse in Oxford
Charming guesthouse with very comfortable room. Bonus is that the best cafe in Oxford is on the ground floor.

One night stay
An attractive guest house in a less than attractive part of Oxford. A bit too far for most to walk to the City centre but good bus service. Staff friendly although a little disorganised. Good room with en-suite bath. Nice breakfast area. Good breakfast fare and great flat white!

Comfortable place to stay
Comfortable place to stay, good location, but the Internet connection in our room was not good.

Perfect for a single guest.
Initially struck by the lovely atmosphere - informal but very friendly and helpful staff. Impressed by how clean everywhere was. Had single room 7 on second floor small but contained everything one needed - really quiet too. Only drawback toilet and shower were on floor below as facilities on second floor were out of order. There was no lift. I suggest this is stated on the website. This place is not suitable for anyone disabled. A pleasant cafe is downstairs where one can have breakfast at an extra cost.

Let down :(
Was really excited to stay at Browns as heard wonderful things. Booked a single room with shared bathroom. I’d never usually do that but I wanted the experience & I’d heard from a work colleague that it was fine. You get slippers & a gown which is a nice touch. The good points: Cute room with electric heater (would have been cold without it). Breakfast in the cafe (extra price) was nice. Bad points: Check in isn’t clear. There’s a blackboard outside on the SIDE of the wall telling you how to check in but I didn’t see that until when I was leaving! You check in with the cafe staff - which was weird. No information given just handed a key... One of my towels wasn’t clean & covered in makeup The throw on the bed was dirty I went out for a run in the morning came back housekeeping had been (no problem) and left the bedroom door pinned open... my work laptop, 2 iPhones & all my belongings clearly on display on the desk right in front of the door. I waited 5 mins & they never showed - I stayed in room 1 so every single other guest would have been able to walk past & see that!? So unimpressed. The shower in shared bathroom didn’t drain so there were other people’s hairs lying around. Overall it could have been great, but all these little things made it unpleasant & I wouldn’t stay again or recommend :( which is sad.
