4/10 Fair

This was not a B & B in the normally expected sense. The picture of the premises that popped up when I viewed it was totally unlike the actual site. It showed what looked like two S/D houses, and both with the same Oxford House sign, and appeared quite impressive. The reality was a door between two shops, with a staircase leading to one floor with 7 rooms, and a 'cupboard' proudly displaying the name 'Reception'. No-one in attendance, so after ringing a given number, was told my key was in a postbox on the wall next to the entrance door. Not quite the service or amenities expected. There were no facilities at all, though there was free Wi-Fi. There were no dining facilities whatsoever. Suffice to say that this is the worst overnight experience of my life, and I would NOTrecommend this establishment in any way shape or form. I am not surprised that they took my money at the time of booking, so I had little option but to stay and make the best of things.

Ok budget option
It was ok. The bed was clean, but mattress not particularly comfortable. Pillows a bit thin and no extras. Bathroom & towels also clean but the shower was a bit sticky - got the right temperature in the end. This place is absolutely fine if you are wanting a no frills stay and you sleep easily anywhere. There is no reception after 8pm so as a solo female I felt a bit vulnerable - I realised afterwards it does say this on the website. The noise of the traffic is really loud. There is a fan so if it had been hotter it might have been ok to sleep with windows closed. The curtains are not blackout so the room is lit by streetlights at night and the sun streams in in the morning - they cant fix the traffic, but they could easily fix this. The guy who let me in was friendly. Bus stop right outside so excellent transport links into Oxford.

Has a few drawbacks
Decent enough room. Staff wasn't there after check-in. A LONG way from town or even amenities.

Fine for a budget nights stay.
This is basic but satisfactory accommodation for the cost of a stay. The window latch was broken so it let the cold in and the noise of the road was loud as a result. Apart from that the check in was effortless.
