Exceptional Customer Service
There were a few tricky details to be ironed out with changes to this booking on behalf of a team travelling to a conference. On every occasion, the hotel manager and staff were kind enough to adapt to each change with empathy and efficiency and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Thank you so much. We would definitely stay with this guest house again.

My friend and I thought the location was perfect for our City visit. We were met by Liz who couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Our room was very clean the beds very comfortable. Nice to have bottles of water as well as tea/ coffee facilities. Breakfast included fruit cereal and a hearty cooked breakfast. Very reasonable rate for this area. Hotel could do with a bit of a re-vamp but couldn't fault it or the people who run it . Would definitely stay again.

Excellent Guest House
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The English breakfast was quite fine and always satisfying. The room was very clean and tidy and I had no complaints whatsoever. I took advantage of the Sportsview Guest House's coupon for Singapore 30s restaurant (excellent!). I hope American travelers won't be put off by the athletic sounding name: this is a VERY peaceful and respectable place within walking distance of the tourist sights.

Alles Was Mann Braucht
Das Einzelzimmer ist sehr klein, ca 7 qm und nicht besonders chic. Zudem ist das Haus sehr hellhörig - aber dennoch war es in der Nacht ruhig. Alles war sauber, die Mitarbeiter freundlich, das Frühstück gut und für Oxford sehr günstig! Somit hatte das Zimmer alles was ich brauchte! Ich würde das Zimmer jederzeit wieder buchen.

Distance 0.68 miles (1.09 km)
Oxford conjures up images of students riding their bicycles furiously to their next lecture, elegant university buildings and the terribly English pastime of spending a leisurely afternoon punting on the Thames. However, there is more to Oxford than the university... from museums... to peacefulparks... to its lively social life. The origins of the city of Oxford are lost in the mists of time. The remains of a priory were discovered close to the present day site of Christ Church Cathedral. Most of the colleges are open to the public, All Souls founded in 1437, Balliol founded in the 13th century, Christ Church which was founded by Cardinal Wolsey.
