    very central and handy as our daughter is studying in a college nearby

  • Family with children

    Charming little Hobbit den. 18th charm, accommodations surprisingly roomy, but ceilings very low in keeping with the historic nature of the buildings. Great location, right in the center of everything. Ronel, the owner, was extremely helpful.

    The location, the people.

    The bed moved (it was on wheels).

    Very large room, extremely quiet, great location. Ancient, tight entryways, but all else quite lovely.

  • Family with children

    This facility is centrally located in Oxford: close to several colleges, the city centre and shopping. Wayne was helpful and accommodating. When we were unable to connect to the Internet, he came up to our room and attempted to help us with our computer. Later during breakfast, Wayne made sure that we had what we needed and checked in on us, getting us extra coffee, tea and toast.

    The location in the centre of Oxford very near to shops, pubs and the University area.

    En-suite bathrooms are now the minimum standard and the Tower House does not have en-suite bathrooms.

    Very quaint room, very comfortable. Steeped in history. Great location to all the Oxford sights. Good breakfast.

    Would have liked the breakfast a little earlier.

    good little place not much to look at when you walk in but room was nice.

    price per room is high considering they do not have en-suites in all room,we were fortunate enough to be given an en-suite even though we hadnt booked one,but to pay £80 with out it is too excessive.the hotel has very thin walls and celing so everything other guests are doing,doors closing people walking around or talking in neighbouring rooms,can be heard,its ok if your dropping your bags,going out and coming back to have a few hours sleep,but be warned you will be woken up early by noise from other guests.

    Proximity to the market square, universities and pubs in Oxford.

    We had an enjoyable night at this small, friendly and interesting 17th century guest house. Comfortable rooms but mind your head on the low beams!

    Beautiful and comfortable beds with snow white bedding! Friendly and helpful staff. No cooked breakfasts so no horrible food smells in the morning and the breakfast was delicious; organic muesli, yoghurt and fruit and seedy toast and croissants with some cooked meats as well.

    The shower was a little temperamental but I've rarely stayed anywhere where it isn't - you just have to work it out!

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Old run down 3 storey house in an excellent city centre location. In serious need of redecoration and smartening up though and the room rate is way too high for what is offered - other than location

    It was full of history, quaint, comfortable and quiet. Very convenient for the city centre.

    The Tower Hotel is advertised as a Hotel ??? but in reality its a room in a house no hotel facilities its a b+b although they do charge Hotel prices!

    its excellent location is a major bonus, it is a lovely b+b, just not a hotel

    The breakfast was wonderful and the staff were very friendly. It felt as if we were staying with friends.
