Official star rating:
It doesn’t get much more central than this charming B&B, hidden away behind a mint-green frontage on historic Ship Street, a stone’s throw from all the city’s main sights.
The house dates back to the 16th century, and the winding passageways, stone floors and jumble of rooms all add to the historic feel.
There are few add-ons – there’s no breakfast (but countless cafes and restaurants within walking distance) or communal area – but this means super-affordable rooms in one of the best locations in the city.
All the main sights – the colleges, covered market and shops and restaurants – are within a few minutes’ walk. If you want to be right at the heart of historic Oxford, this is the place to choose.
Tucked away on a skinny side street, right in the centre of town, Tower House is flanked by residential buildings, with the imposing walls of Jesus College directly opposite.
Inevitably there is traffic noise and plenty of hubbub, with a café and a couple of boutiques a few doors along, but it’s not one of the city’s main arteries, and it does quieten at night.
