A pleasant and friendly accommodation for a reasonable price. I liked the light and modern design, the cleanliness of the room and the helpful staff. My room had a small balcony - a good place for smokers:) The location is perfect - a quiet place situated very close to the Water Front.

Oxford House is convenient, bright and clean and welcoming. I did feel that the room could do with some maintenance and review of amenities. For instance a teaspoon! or two. Servicing was first class but the duvet was very lumpy. Not sure if I would return. Might prefer to try somewhere else next time.

Well appointed room but many flaws: no bulbs in bedside lights; no pods or milk for coffee machine; coffee machine didn't work and no kettle; no adapter for hairdryer; only one mug... Beautiful to look at but perhaps Mismanaged?

This is a modern, clean studio apartment which suited me Fine for a few days. Limited cooking facilities but so many great eating options within 5 mins walk. The only Let down is that there is a large construction site next door, but I wasn't there trying to relax Or sleep in! Good For the price and location
