Review of Osney Arms
Great location for visiting colleges. Very clean and welcoming with comfortable beds and nice furnishings. Continental breakfast available on a help yourself basis with hot drinks machine for self service. Would have liked cereals and milk to have been available as was the case about a year previously. Much less choice for breakfast but this would not deter me from booking again.

Super sleep
Very convenient to train station, supremely comfortable bed. Breakfast is 'grab and go' - light breakfast in a bag - fresh pastry and sufficient to start the day. Enjoyed my stay very much.

Would 100% Recommend
The Osney Arms Guest House was incredibly clean and comfortable, and we would definitely be willing to stay here again! It was on a busy street, but they had double windows, so you could barely hear the noise at night. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and the "grab and go" style breakfast included croissants, pastries, fruit, granola bars, yogurt, and more. They are also willing to provide for dietary restrictions if you notify them in advance. The only tiny negative was it was a bit of a walk from the center of Oxford, but there's a bus stop really nearby if you don't want to make the walk.

Clean and comfortable
The entrance is a bit shabby and in the breakfast room there were things left around which really should have been put away (i.e. vacuum cleaner) but overall the place was clean and comfortable, and Marie was particularly friendly and welcoming. The room was lacking somewhere to hang things and electrical sockets weren't situated very conveniently for use of hairdryer etc. The home-made scones for breakfast were particularly good though.

A lovely quaint experience
Hi we booked this to make a trip to the theatre a relaxing experience i.e. not having to travel home afer. The hotel is in a great location only 10 minutes walk to the centre. The place was spotlessly clean and hotel staff were polite and welcoming. The only thing I wouldn't do again is have a shared bathroom. Having said that, the bathroom was located right next door and we never actually saw anyone else use it (it's only shared with one other room). It was a lovely stay though I wouldn't have wanted to stay longer as the bathroom only had a bath and no attachments and when sharing you are conscious you don't want to take it over for too long so we each forwent having a bath the next morning but were travelling home so it didn't matter. Breakfast was a quaint affair with one big breakfast table for all guests (2 sittings - opting the night before for which one suited) but food although just continental was very good.
