stylist room in a friendly place

The establishment felt private and intimate, a bit like a boutique hotel.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Lovely little en-suite room that had some nice decorative touches.The room suited me for a one-night stay but it is small with a sloping roof and there is a hanger rail rather than a wardrobe so perhaps not great for longer stays. Even on the top floor and with the window closed the traffic is a little noisy so may not suit light sleepers. Lots of stairs and no lift so not suitable for those with mobility problems. Although I did not have breakfast (included in the price), it looked lovely, and the room where is was served was very pleasant and nicely decorated.

Great base for a mini break

I initially chose this guest house purely on location - close to the station and close to the city centre according to the website - and the detailed room photos were encouraging.

But it was all true. What a great place - spotlessly clean, very welcoming, a friendly atmosphere, huge breakfast choice around a refectory table. Seven minutes walk to the station and about ten more to the city centre, and good range of eating places along that route - no need to walk all the way back into the centre for an evening meal. Will definitely stay here again.

Great little guest house

Recently enjoyed 3 nights at The Osney Arms and will definitely return next time I visit Oxford.

It was friendly and homely and nothing was too much trouble. Extremely comfy bed, good quality linens, modern ensuite with a fab rainforest shower. Breakfast is taken at a large refectory table and consisted of cereals, dried fruit, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, croissants, toast, cold meat, cheese, fresh juice, tea, coffee and delicious home made scones. A bit of noise from road at the front of the guest house but didn't keep us awake at night. A few minutes walk from Oxford railway station. Lovely stay.

Home from home

We stayed here as a base for visiting Oxford - vet convenient for the train station.

Simon was a fantastic host, very friendly. Owners responded promptly to all queries, including an email about leaving our bags before check in so we could go sightseeing, and replacing a faulty lamp immediately. Room was lovely, bed was really comfortable. Would recommend.
