“Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2011

Cornerways Guest House was lovely. The room and en suite were very clean and comfortable, with a flat screen TV, tea/coffee/hot chocolate/kettle, thick fluffy towels and, best of all, high-speed wi-fi. Breakfast served in the bright cosy breakfast room was fresh and hot, giving a good start to the day.

Carol was very considerate in helping me get over my jet lag, making sure that I was not disturbed when I returned to my room after breakfast.

The bus stop is just a few doors away and it's easy to get into town from there. There's also a bus that goes right to the railway station, and that's really handy if you're handling big luggage.

Overall, a great stay, highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay in "Cornerways Guest House" in Oxford. Everything was excellent: The room was furnished very nice and it was very tidy. The room and the bathroom was cleaned everyday and we got new towels. Carol Jeakings, the owner of the guest house, is a helpful, nice and lovely person. She prepares a very, very delicious breakfast: One can choose between English and Continental Breakfast and additionally, between many kinds of cereals.
ONe cannot find a better place to stay and if we come to Oxford a second time, we will stay in "Cornerways Guest House" once again. Very recommendable! Thanks a lot, Carol!

I stayed at Cornerways Guest House from 30th August - 3rd September 2011.

Cornerways offers great value for money. Well situated to central Oxford. Bus service close by or a easy 15 minute walk. Carol has a good knowledge of Oxford and is happy to pass that information on. My room was small but well appointed with lots of natural light. I would have no hesitation in staying at Cornerways on my next vist to Oxford.

Thankyou Carol for a lovely stay. Carol is friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Our room and bathroom was gorgeous and spotless. I missed vegemite for my toast and the next morning it appeared on the table. Robin had a major bithday and Carol presented him with an even nicer breakfast than the day before!. The location is great and there is off street parking and the bus takes you into town in 5 minutes. There is also a milkbar and take away close by.
We came as strangers and left as friends. Thankyou again Carol.

Room Tip: The downstairs room is very quiet.
