    I liked the location very much and the house as such. The fact that there is not always staff around if you have questions, can be a little frustrating. Luckily, once I got through to management, they were very helpful and my problems were quickly solved.

    Breakfast was nice, but very eggy. While I liked the poached eggs for breakfast, on day 3, I was yearning for muesli, joghurt, and some fresh fruit, which wasn't served. Plumbing with regard to showers in some rooms could be improved.

    The room was lovely and even though your right in the middle of everything in Oxford (And a Saturday night) it was still very quite and we had a great nights sleep. As i said it a pain in the butt to get to breakfast in the rain... but when your there the staff were polite and the breakfast was lovely. I would stay there again and recommend others to do the same.

    The staff are not on site but round the corner in the next building at Turle Street Kitchen. So to get to breakfast it's a short walk to the kitchen. Just a little pain in the butt as it started to rain when we went to eat.

    Perfect location for central Oxford. Staff pleasant when available at the kitchen round the corner. Room cosy and clean.

    Staff didn’t have key for room where luggage stored on check out, and had been locked when closed. Took about 30ish mins to get bags and leave, good thing we had plenty of time to catch our train (stick a spare key in the office guys). Guest trying to check in late during night of our stay tried to get in at 1am ish banging on the door, not property fault but worth bearing in mind it takes time to get keys/check in etc at the restaurant when busy as there is no traditional reception. Breakfast a bit slow in the morning as restaurant seemed short staffed.
