About the hotel
Set on the pedestrianised part of historic Broad Street, The Buttery is one of Oxford’s most central accommodation providers. All 16 rooms are en-suite, some with original fireplaces and are decorated in a neutral style with light colours. The Buttery provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a choice of double, twin, single or family rooms.
Deluxe rooms have views overlooking Broad Street and Balliol College and standard rooms look out onto Ship Street buildings. All rooms offer free broadband internet access, flat screen televisions, direct dial telephones, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryers and electric shaver points. Rates include continental breakfast, which is served downstairs in the Oxford Campus Buttery. Being centrally located we are in easy walking distance of a number of museums, theatres, the main shopping areas as well as variety of restaurants and pubs offering a wide range of evening meal eating options. Links to public transport are easy, with the train station fifteen minutes walk or a short taxi ride away and the coach station even closer, five minutes walk at the most. Park and Ride bus stops are also only a few minutes walk from the door. Access is gained through the red door between Oxford Campus Stores and The Oxford Campus Butteery, after 6pm the door is shut and access is gained via an intercom on the left handside of the front door, our night porter ensures access is available throughout the night. Public parking facilities with payment meters are available nearby, however parking in the centre of Oxford is limited and expensive, we therefore recommend making use of the five Park and Ride sites that surround the city.

The loo was dirty.
I had to clean it myself using the toilet brush. The loo did clean up so it wasn't stained. The bathroom in general wasn't clean with dirty surfaces and a used cotton bud had been left on a shelf.

This is an amazing little Guest House for anyone who wants to explore the various museums, colleges and shops of central Oxford.
All of these things are within easy and level walking distance from The Buttery. It was very clean and room 305 had fantastic views of Balliol and was good for people watching. The breakfast was a fairly bland experience as the room used is tiny and is part of the café at the front, but it served a purpose and it is easy to see how staff are limited in what they can achieve within the space available. As others have pointed out, the stairs to the rooms are narrow and steep, so would pose problems for people with mobility problems. Similarly, there is little here for very young children and the steps would be difficult for them to climb and a pushchair would never reach the summit. However, if you are fit and have children over 8 years old, this is definitely the place to stay.
