Mange your expectations and its pretty good
This is truly a no-frills place. Usually, there is no staff on site at all. Very informal. The maid who let me in speaks only Portugese and worse French than I do, but we managed. Simple, modest room and bath. Nice bed, perfectly comfortable. No other facilities or services. The fan in my room was past its best days but worked. Internet worked fine. Quiet street, creaky old building with very narrow halls and steep stairs. Great location.

This was definitely an interesting stay… We arrived at our check in time and the two teenagers at reception seemed to be very confused. They couldn’t find our booking at first and then I think realized they’d put someone in our room but didn’t want to say anything. They had been left in charge but it was clear they were not equipped to handle this on their own. We get into our room and get settled then head out for dinner and an Evensong at Christ Church. We get a call saying they’ve put us in the wrong room and that we have to come back immediately, which we couldn’t do. Long story short, we cut our night out a good bit short so that we could go back and take care of the room situation. I don’t blame the kids, they weren’t equipped to handle the situation, but they absolutely shouldn’t have been left in charge.

This was a great spot--quiet side street within an easy walk of everything in the city center. Clean, well maintained, comfortable in every way. I'd definitely recommend it and will stay again when I am next in Oxford.

We enjoyed this 17th C. guest house. Although dating from 1600, it was up to date with 21st C. standards. Our only mishap was that the central heating was not functioning in the main bedroom, but there was a space heater which helped keep the room warmer during our chilly early April stay. The staff was friendly and helpful, but bear in mind that someone is available at reception only at 3:00 pm. Centrally located, we enjoyed our stay at the Tower House.
