The owners of the facility have been very kind and have made our stay at Hollybush Guest House, Oxford, very comfortable. The place is very close to the bus stop for easy downtown connectivity. The room and the bathroom had just been renovated. A very nice stay!

We met hard working people and recognized ourselves
Mr André M

The room was well decorated with lovely furniture and very clean. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious I would highly recommend staying at the Hollybush hotel.

The key phrase is 'value for money': my room was small and simple, very clean, comfortable bed, everything I needed for a one-night stay;and it cost me £50 in Oxford! Eva is very courteous, charming, attentive. It makes all the difference.

We arrived later than we had advised to find a note on the door. When I called the number listed I was welcomed and given the code for the key box, so we were able get in easily. The place was clean and the rooms comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful with a good selection of serve yourself continental style options. Basic but good value accommodation.
Mr Simon K

Friendly staff, very helpful
Mr Pucheng W

the place was lovely, with prompt service and had a very 'home' feeling: something whih is rare with guest houses. I will definitely recommend the place to my friends, or in case I again need a guest room in Oxford.
Dr Renan B

The women working there were very nice and helpful. It was quiet. The breakfast could be richer, with more variety, and the shower is a bit noisy- but it's still ok. Transportation is very easy from there. A bus station is right next to the house.
