Rooms are located in the Grade 1 listed buildings designed by the Victorian architect, William Butterfield, as well as in our modern award winning buildings.
We have ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor and in buildings with lifts and wet room style bathroom for those who have difficulty with mobility. Our aim is to ensure that all guests are offered assistance and we ask guests to advise us of their particular needs when making their booking.

Please note we cannot accept Hen or Stag Parties out of respect for our other guests.
History to the present day
Founded in 1870 in memory of John Keble, a central figure in the controversial Oxford Movement which sought to recover the Catholic heritage of the Church of England, Keble is one of the largest colleges in Oxford. Although the College has produced many notable Anglican leaders, it is no longer formally tied to the Church of England and no longer are the Fellows, or the Warden, beholden to an external Council of ecclesiastical worthies.
Keble now has over 600 students, both graduates and undergraduates who come from a great variety of social and educational backgrounds, and from diverse parts of the UK, Europe and further overseas. It is noted for both its academic and sporting successes and its music, notably the Chapel Choir, which is among the best in Oxford.
(A booklet, priced at £4.00, detailing the full history of Keble College can be purchased at the Lodge along with postcards and other Keble merchandise)
Food and Drinks
All bedrooms have tea/coffee making facilities, towels and toiletries.
Breakfast is included in your rate and is served in our magnificent Victorian Gothic dining hall, the longest Hall in Oxford.
The College Bar is a contemporary Grade 2* listed glass building with indoor and outdoor seating. It is generally open every day providing a relaxing space in colourful surroundings for guests to unwind after a busy day. Check in the Lodge for hours of opening.
Grounds and gardens
Keble boasts four delightful quads each with its own character and gardens. From the Liddon Quad - one of the largest in Oxford - to the more intimate Pusey Quad. Newman Quad with its herbaceous border and the Hayward Quad where drinks are served in the summer complete the quartet.
All bedrooms have an ethernet point for which a cable is required - available from the Lodge for a small deposit. We do not offer a WiFi network access.
We welcome children when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Certain areas of the college are not suitable for young children and it is a requirement that they are supervised by an adult at all times. The College and its personnel will not accept responsibility for the actions of unsupervised children. We are unable to provide equipment for young children such as cribs, high chairs etc.
Please note that our en-suite and standard rooms are located in different parts of the college, therefore if you are booking more than one type of room, they are unlikely to be very close to each other.

Mrs Sally M, January 2016: Good sized, modern single room, comfy bed, very clean
Dr Helen G, October 2015: This was university accommodation and as such was good value for money
Mrs Alexandra C, October 2015: lhe personnel mas excepcionally helpful and nice! Give them a rise :)
Mr Andrew H, October 2015: We had four rooms in total: all were immaculately clean, the bed linen crisp and we all slept like babies. The college grounds are stunning and the porters immensely helpful. The breakfast is better in some other colleges (John's and Christ Church) but there is a wide choice of things to eat and drink and it's all set in a magnificent dining hall so we gave Keble a big "thumbs up".
Dr Cameron K, October 2015: Excellent simple room and facilities
Dr Soogan L, October 2015: I would recommend others to stay here, not for cushiony comfort ( although perfectly adequate) but to experience the old world charm of the halls, the quads, the dining room. I stayed here for a conference and got the corporate rate so I was happy with that and in fact if I returned as a tourist I would stay here again. It's right in the middle of Oxford city and it's perfect as a base from which to walk around sightseeing.
Miss Karen H, October 2015: The most beautiful college in the perfect location. A quiet room with a lovely view, the basic facilities added to experience. The staff were friendly and helpful, a pleasant change these days. No TV in the room made it a peaceful, restful experience.
Mrs Pam C, October 2015: Lovely quiet room overlooking front quad. Walking distance from centre of city. Great facilities and good breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff. Enjoyed our stay very much.
Miss Deborah S, October 2015: I always love staying at Keble!!! My room was wonderful and very clean as they always are at Keble College.
The students in the lodge are a real bonus to the college as they are helpful, friendly and extremely polite and I would also like to say 'euxaristo poli' to Georgia!!!! Thank you all for another delightful stay and I hope to return in the very near future!!!!
Dr. MARIE-FRANCE E, October 2015: Wonderfull place to stay with a lovely garden. Hope to come back.
Mr David J, October 2015: Excellent service and experience
Dr. PIERRE B, October 2015: Le cadre est vraiment incroyable et vous donne l'expérience de vie d'un collège, surtout le petit-déjeuner dans l'immense réfectoire. L'accueil et le service sont parfaits.
Mrs Rosemary B, October 2015: Such a wonderful experience to be in an Oxford college looking out onto quad.
Prof Dirk V, October 2015: Beautiful college plus pass on my commendations to the painter who so nicely vanished the entrance doors!
Mrs Bridget M, October 2015: Highly reccommended!
Ms Jessica C, October 2015: I had a wonderful stay at Keble College. The main improvement I'd suggest for the room are better, thicker mattresses so you don't feel every spring in the bed. Other than this, my stay was truly wonderful.
Dr Catherine M, October 2015: Thank you!
Mr Paul W, September 2015: Could do with having complete wifi coverage in the college, otherwise an amazing experience staying in Keble.
Mr thomas F, September 2015: Excellent base and very comfortable room
Mrs Laura B, September 2015: To eat breakfast in the Keble dinning hall was wonderful!
Ms Birgitte M, September 2015: Very modern and well equipped room. Fantastic view on the old college buildings. I loved every moment !
Mr Cameron T, September 2015: Thanks to the porters and lodge staff for allowing us to check out a bit late as we had 4 adults to get through the shower. :)
Prof David B, September 2015: Hello,
We had a fantastic experience and would return to Keble College for B & B in the future.
The staff were polite and extremely helpful, both regarding issues related to our accommodations and to Oxford, in general. I appreciated the prompt and thorough help that we had resolving a question about the heating, extra pillows, and the ironing board. As I mentioned to the manager of the dining hall before we departed, all of the dining hall staff were polite, efficient, and right on top of it all.
There were only two areas for improvement that I would suggest, both related to potentially avoidable problems with noise....
The first is that the showers in the building were EXTREMELY loud. When fellow guests in neighboring rooms were showering (sometimes at very early or very late hours), the walls of our room would rattle like mad with noise that kept us awake. I'm sure the same must have been true for others when we showered. Surely, this is a plumbing problem that you could remedy.
The second is that there was a regular noise from the courtyard in the evenings and into the night that sounded something like a loud gate repeatedly slamming closed. This occurred rather frequently every evening we were there. Again, this seems like something that would be reasonably easy to fix.
As I mentioned, we had a wonderful stay, and I offer these two suggestions as areas in which you might make a couple of improvements.
I hope that we'll see you again,
David Buckley, MD, MPH

Mr Jean Louis L, September 2015: Wonderful experience
Mr Alan D, September 2015: Good location, comfortable provision, wifi working so lack of tv no problem

Mr Hilary O, September 2015: Perfect stay for our needs
Dr Aodhnait F, September 2015: A real joy to spend a night at Keble - beautiful surroundings, lovely rooms, great facilities, incredibly friendly staff, fab to have breakfast in the 'Harry Potter feeling' hall! A perfect base for a weekend in Oxford. Good value for money.
Ms Grace G, September 2015: Was very pleased with the accommodations and level of service received at both the porters room and in the breakfast room. Will definitely use again and will recommend to others. Thank you.

Ms Iris O, September 2015: Had wonderful time. Will use University Rooms again.
Mr David J, September 2015: Wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Would highly recommend this to others and intending to do a future booking the next time I'm in England.
Mrs Emel H, September 2015: It is great value for money. I am looking forward to booking there in the future again.

Mr Barry P, September 2015: Excellent way to visit Oxford
Mr Lewis B, September 2015: The food was first class (breakfast + dinner). The staff were incredibly polite and helpful. The room was basic but acceptable and clean.
Mrs Elena F, September 2015: I didn't book the room myself but I believe it was a very smooth process. The whole experience was excellent, and the college environment and buildings are superb. Looking for minor improvements the selection of cold breakfast buffet was a bit limited, an issue completely dwarfed by the magnificence of the dinning hall.
Mr Jan L, September 2015: Great experience overall - the rooms, the service and the breakfast
Mrs VIRGINIE B, September 2015: fantastic environment & beautiful buildings !
Mr JOHN DRYDEN R, September 2015:
Mr Per V, September 2015: Arco building needs refurbishment! Room in poor state. No reading lamps (strange at a college). No cleaning in the hall - thick with dust in the corners. Outside Arco building everything was fine. Good service, fantastic breakfast in the great hall and everybody was very friendly.
Mr Robert H, September 2015: The staff at the Porter's lodge were excellent
Mrs CATHERINE G, September 2015: Really enjoyed the experience at Keble College. Thank you for all the students who were very professionally serving us.
Mr Filip T, September 2015: It's a very special experience to stay in an Oxford college. And to have breakfast in the great hall. Like Harry Potter. The rooms were clean and basic, small bathroom but more than OK. Good beds. A very nice varied breakfast. Excellent location to visit Oxford.
Mr Patrick D, September 2015: The room I got in ARCO building was not very clean. The bed was a nightmare! and this is a pity to see that the overall cleaning of this building is neglected. Overall and despite this bad experience with my room I did enjoy my stay in this beautiful place
Mr Leonard R, September 2015: Great stay with helpful staff and good breakfast. Room fine but not five star unsurprisingly but better than anticipated
Mr John M, September 2015: This wa our first experience of a University, and as it was also the Open Day in Oxford we availed ourselves of the opportunity to visit many of the other colleges. Keble came out top in our view for student accommodation, helped by the friendliness of all the Student helpers. a great time Thanks
Mrs Helen M, September 2015: The very friendly young guy on the door at breakfast was a great advertisement for your college and gave us some good advice on local villages to visit. Thanks for a great stay.

Dr Ulrike Valeria F, September 2015: I am planning to come back
Mr Claus L, September 2015: The place showed great flexibility and all were very helpful. Rooms are a bit "tired" and you should really consider some stopping mechanism on the doors since all wake up when the first leaves her/his room :-)
Ms Anna Carina M, September 2015: Better breakfast options for those with food allergies i.e. dairy free yoghurt and milk and gluten free toast, rolls and pastries.
Dr Gina L, September 2015:
Mr Bilal Muhammad Y, September 2015: I really enjoyed my trip
And will definitely stay here whenever I visited oxford next time
Mrs Lorna H, September 2015: We would certainly use the college again.
Mr Tim M, September 2015: Comfy beds, amazing surrounds and fantastic breakfast; the dining hall was like being in Harry Potter! A bargain stay if in Oxford.
Dr Alan G, September 2015: great experience
Mr John H, September 2015: Many thanks for a delightful experience
Ms Veerle W, September 2015: We had a marvelous stay here. The room is basic, but very clean and functional. It includes wifi and tea/coffee making facilities. Being able to have breakfast in the beautiful Hall made us feel very privileged. All staff and summer students were helpful and very friendly. Keble is only a short walk away from the centre. We would highly recommend this college to everyone who is planning to spend a few days in Oxford and we would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to the staff and students.
Prof Samer S, September 2015: Very nice experience.

Mr Stephen W, September 2015: would stay again
Miss Gwen C, September 2015: I was very pleased with my stay, the college staff were all friendly, efficient and helpful. The room was a student room but well decorated, cared for and the tea/ coffee and en-suite facilities added a welcome 'adult' element which raised the experience to one of comfort as well as nostalgia.
Mr Adrian B, September 2015: Terrific! I really enjoyed the view from my room, and breakfast in the hall. I would definitely recommend staying at Keble, and would very much like to visit again.
Prof Xianran X, September 2015:
Very nice, thanks!
Prof Ling Dong S, September 2015: It is a nice quiet place to enjoy UK visit. And it is convennient to visit at Oxford and around places. It is a very good memory. I would like to select it again if I visit Oxford.
Mrs Marilyn R, September 2015: Enjoyed our stay!
Prof Yuichi H, September 2015: I had been in Oxford, but I had never the opportunity to stay at college before. It was very good experience and the breakfast at the dining room was gorgeous. I enjoyed very much. Many thanks.
Mrs Tessa T, September 2015: Very good, clean room. Right in the heart of Oxford
Mr Philip B, September 2015: A little reserved when I saw the room, but after the first impression it grew on me. Very friendly scouts a credit to the college. And very helpful porters even to the point of getting IT to help reset my laptop,
Mr Vincent P, September 2015:
Dr Monica M, September 2015: Thank you! It's been a pleasure!
Dr Nagaphani Kumar B, September 2015:
Dr Jean-Francois G, September 2015: Excellent (different shutters and improved lighting would be welcome for the bathroom).
Dr Eszter B, September 2015:
Mr Korey C, September 2015:
Mrs RYOKO I, September 2015: Beautiful place!!
Dr Jurriaan Z, September 2015:
Mr Francesco Z, September 2015:
Dr Jennifer M, September 2015: Very pleasant staff, beautiful location!
Dr Asma A, September 2015:
Mr Inocencio Rafael M, September 2015:
Mr Andrew F, September 2015:
Mrs Caroline S, September 2015: Overall, an amazing experience. The only thing that could improve it would be a better bed, but we understand you probably need v portable furniture, and the pleasure of staying in such a wonderful environment far outweighed that minor discomfort. We were particularly struck by how friendly and polite all the staff and students were. Thank you for a great time - we will be back!
Dr Oxana K, September 2015: I have really enjoyed my stay! Thank you very much!
Mr Nick R, September 2015: We really enjoyed the whole experience and it had definitely whetted our appetite for using university accommodation in the future
Mr Gisbert N, September 2015: wonderful stay at the heart of oxford, phantastic college, best stuff in hall, room and reception
Dr Victoria V, September 2015: I'm reticent to leave my comments here, simply because we had an outstanding experience, and I'd rather keep it a secret! What a wonderful location, beautiful surroundings, fabulous (extravagant) breakfast, and friendly service. Our room was immaculately clean, fully equipped, quiet, and centrally located for all our needs. I shall be recommending Keble College's B&B facilities to my friends looking for a nice place to stay before or after one-day conferences, or people visiting the town on holiday, or those using the libraries for a couple of days' research. An absolute gem. Thankyou!
Mrs Ann Marie A, September 2015: Very helpful staff on arrival. Room very clean , comfortable bed & bedding. Hospitality tray with bottled water. Shower room basic but adequate with towels & toiletries.Breakfast a real highlight of the stay . Again great staff & good food. Excellent value for money considering the surroundings and proximity to attractions.
Mr Jean Marie T, September 2015: Excellent by all standards. Quiet and beautiful.
Miss Jessie W, September 2015: I would have loved to stay in the older part of the building, but I couldn't deny the amazing views the newer part had. The bathrooms were only shared with one other room, and it must have been a quiet time, I never saw anyone. It was a magical experience and all the staff/students were very lovely.
Mrs alexandra S, September 2015: Had a great time. Beautiful college buildings. Staff very helpful and friendly. Had we realised that there will be no TV we would have brought our small radio. It is understandable that there will be no TV for students (no time and a distraction) and that it is too expensive to hire and license for such short breaks between terms. We had a great time in Oxford and this college. We will do it again. Perhaps you can organise better weather!!
Mrs Rebekah S, September 2015: Had a wonderful time with my daughter , and looking forward to staying again soon !! Next time I hope I will be lucky enough to get a Victorian room , as that would be amazing !! Many thanks Rebekah .
Mr peter S, September 2015: the room was fine very clean and nice crisp linens etc, but in the end it is a student room, and so have rated it average as some might expect more luxury if it was rated higher, we loved our stay at Keble and hope to be back
Mrs Linda Ann R, September 2015: Love my room in the rectory and the 6 rooms in Armco building for my group.
Mr Bernard R, September 2015: Very pleasant stay.
Impressive breakfast service: competence, skill,...
Prof Susan B, September 2015: Marvellous experience. It would be difficult for some people to manage the stairs with luggage - no help offered. The mattress was pretty old and lumpy which was surprising as everything else was top quality!
Prof Tom A, September 2015: Very satisfactory. The staff, and the students who were acting as staff, were very helpful. Unfortunately, a false fire-alarm went off in the middle of the night, and causing everyone to get up.
Dr juon-kin F, September 2015: Lovely setting. Room was spartan but clean and well-ordered with clean bathroom and shower. Breakfast was buffet style but full English and as much as one would want to eat. Would be pleased to stay there again.
Mrs Hilary S, September 2015: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the beautiful college
Mrs Angela M, September 2015: Very good location for exploring the town. The room was big but otherwise a typical student accommodation. Road facing but not too noisy. Breakfast in the hall was an amazing experience. The old part of the college is so beautiful and visiting the chapel is a must.
Miss Deborah S, September 2015: This was my second visit to Keble and once again I enjoyed the overall experience very much.
My room was immaculate and well-serviced with fresh towels and a replenished hospitality tray every day, breakfast in the dining hall is always a fantastic experience and the staff there were both polite and extremely attentive.
I have graded my overall experience as 'good' (previously excellent) this time as it was quite noisy in the communal hallway close to my room and this led to interrupted sleep. I do, however, love staying at Keble and hope to return again before the end of the year!!!!!
Mr Paul B, September 2015: good value for a basic overnight room.
All staff excellent
Mr Dwight S, September 2015: We had a wonderful experience at Keble, and have already spoken to friends to encourage them to make it their destination.
Mr GRAHAM S, September 2015: Wonderful architecture and full of atmosphere, staff friendly and helpful. Just a short walk to the sights of Oxford. It's just the parking on a meter that can be a problem. Use the Park and Ride unless you have lots of luggage.
Mrs Lynne T, September 2015: very pleased with the accommodation and setting (we were in the Victorian building), and service throughout was impressive. Would return again without hesitation.
Ms YOUNGMI Y, September 2015: During night stay, the room was cold to sleep. I am satisfied with staying at the college room!
Mr Jeremy O, August 2015: Really nice experience
Mr Pauline R, August 2015: What an amazing place to stay for a wedding in town.....we will recommend to all our friends.
Mr Philip C, August 2015: wonderful
Mr Jonathan M, August 2015: Ideal for large family accomodation
Mrs Katy S, August 2015: I booked three family suites for a weekend away for 11 ladies. We all absolutely loved the college grounds and Harry Potter dining hall for breakfast. The rooms were very clean and location easy walking distance to central Oxford. The bedrooms are a good size. The only slightly downsize was the suites were described as an apartment so I thought would have a seperate lounge area but only came with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom, the room descriptions were not very clear on this point. Overall I would definitely recommend for group bookings we had a lovely stay.
Ms Judith W, August 2015: Would have liked wifi to be better - couldn't get iPlayer radio or TV on my iPad. Other than that, everything very good.
Fr. Anke V, August 2015: It was a great stay in Oxford and in Keble College, thank you! We were so lucky to have a nice accommodation in the centre. And we shall remember breakfast in the huge dining hall.
Mr Svend V, August 2015: Very Nice and central place
Miss sarah C, August 2015: lovely experience...staff very friendly and helpful
Mr Wilfried R, August 2015: Excellent breakfast, location and service. Quality of mattress rather poor.
Mr melvyn R, August 2015: We came with our son and his family,we all had an enjoyable visit .
Mrs Elizabeth S, August 2015: Everything was great, although the hother breakfast was a bit dissappointing. Surroundings were wonderful though.
Dr Timothy K, August 2015: College staff incredibly helpful and courteous. Room and location v. good value. We know Oxford very well and over 30yrs +. Would gladly return.
Mr Aamer Y, August 2015: Although the rooms are average, they were perfectly adequate and comfortable. Having breakfast in such a beautiful dining hall is great. We loved the fact that we could stay in a beautiful college, in the heart of Oxford. Overall a very good experience.
Mrs Margaret P, August 2015: We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of staying in a university college, and breakfast in the magnificent Keble College Dining Room will remain a highlight of our visit to the UK. If we are ever in the Oxford area again, we shall most certainly come and stay again; and I shall certainly recommend it to friends.
Ivan D, August 2015: Excellent room! Porter staff were polite and attentive.
Mr Matheus M, August 2015: I have booked a University room before and was very pleased hence the repeat booking. Very beautiful location.
Mrs Anwen E, August 2015: A wonderful experience, the breakfast was like something out of Harry Potter.
Mr Jonathan D, August 2015: Perfectly reasonable for a student room. My room did smell a bit funky though...
Dr Marlea C, August 2015: I was in a renovated room, and thought it was excellent - except for the bed, which was very soft and the springs could be felt through the sheets. Still, the service was so good that the bad bed didn't matter! My only other minor critique is that the common yard area was very noisy late at night several nights due to large groups of people (the retailers conference for example), and other large groups sitting outside talking loudly (about 1:00 in the morning). I think people should be told upon check in that they must be quiet outside after 10:00. Otherwise, excellent. Fantastic front & breakfast service.
Mrs Jean M, August 2015: Only problem was that we would have preferred to have rooms closer to each on the same floor and when I phoned to make enquiries about easily accessible accommodation I did assume this would be the case.
Dr Alejandro M, August 2015: Hermoso edificio y el comedor es único, vale la pena. Los cuartos son básicos, pero cómodos, la vista al patio del College es muy bonita
Fr. Annette Z, August 2015:
Prof Lixia M, August 2015: Keble College is very comfortable and convenient to everywhere within Oxford.
Ms Madeleine K, August 2015: Staff at Porter's lodge were very helpful in particular Charlie.
Mrs Diana R, August 2015: We had two lovely nights staying at Keble and the breakfast was very satisfactory. I loved the college chapel and was delighted to see The Light of the World by Holman Hunt. I hope to return to Oxford in the not too distant future. The College staff must be mentioned as well; they were most kind and helpful.
Mrs Diane C, August 2015: A very pleasant stay Staff always helpful , polite ,courteous and thought ful of any need you may have - have recommended college to all I meet
Ms Ruth H, August 2015: Everything was excellent.
Mr John N, August 2015: Enjoyed our stay very much. Will return.
Ms Jennifer F, August 2015: Easy, well located, lovely atmosphere for breakfast.
Mr Malcolm H, August 2015: excellent - really pleased with all aspects of the stay
Mrs JIANYING Y, August 2015: very good and convenient ,breakfast is excellent
Mr Christian W, August 2015:
Mr Phil H, August 2015: Somewhere to park and drop off/pick up bags would be nice.
The hot breakfast was not good, tasteless and mass produced with cardboard toast. The orange juice was nothing special either and it would be nice to have fresh tea rather than poured from a stale pot.
Quite expensive for what it was we thought, but a nice experience overall and very convenient.
Mr Ian C, August 2015: Very enjoyable experience
Mr Dan P, August 2015: The room was basic but clean and served as an excellent base from which to explore the city. Online booking was straightforward and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Mrs Teresa W, August 2015:
Mrs Catriona T, August 2015: lovely stay in a beautiful environment but the noise from about 6am onwards of the construction of a grand stand on the lawn right outside our window was awful. Some warning would have been appreciated.
Mr Thomas S, August 2015: As we had studied at university ourselves, we were aware that the rooms are hardly comparable to the ones of 4 star hotels or similar. We had been attracted by the opportunity to stay in a most distinguished college in Oxford to breathe the atmosphere of such a tradtional place. We were not disappointed! What more can you say :-)
Mrs Aleid B, August 2015:
Prof Weidong L, August 2015:
Prof Simone S, August 2015:
Mrs Margareta K, August 2015:
Mr Benjamin M, August 2015: My stay was very pleasant and the staff as helpful as I could hope for. My one complaint as regards the room would be that the lighting was very harsh, making it feel slightly like a hospital room. Otherwise, very comfortable.
Mrs Hazel E, August 2015: Beautiful surroundings, lovely place to stay
Mrs Annie M, August 2015: Very unique experience. The setting makes this a great
Departure from your "run of the mill" BB's/hotels.
Dr Ludovic L, August 2015:
Dr Anthony E, August 2015:
Ms Claire M, August 2015:
Mr Jonathan G, August 2015: The room was clean and comfortable; the college's location was extremely convenient for the library which I had come to use; and the cost was far lower than for an equivalent room in a city-centre hotel. My only gripe was the incessant humming of the college's knackered central heating system!
Mrs Sidonia V, August 2015:
Mr Nicholas D, August 2015:
Mr Sean E, August 2015: Excellent facilities and service with wonderful staff who were always happy to help and answer any queries immediately. The dining hall was amazing and we loved the tranquillity of the grounds. Super location - ideal for exploring Oxford. We definitely hope to return next year. Thank you.
Mr John D, August 2015: Loved it
Mr Alexander G, August 2015: We missed breakfast so I can't give a rating for that. A "not applicable" option would be helpful in your survey.
Dr Ana A, August 2015: Wonderful place!
Mr Brian H, August 2015: Lovely atmospheric location. Easy walking distance into city centre. Buses to park and ride car parks also stop nearby.

Mr Peter W, August 2015: Cheap, clean and convenient. I would certainly stay here again.

Mr Brian H, August 2015: Keble was well positioned for our visit to Oxford. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
Mrs Zenia L, August 2015: Overall good but let down by not having a comfortable seating area in the room. A second room key should be offered.
Mr adrian S, August 2015: We booked a room that overlooked the quad but we got one that overlooked the bicycle racks
Miss Belgin S, August 2015:
Mr john S, August 2015: in an authentic setting of Keble college is it good te be. The rooms in the new building were fine as well as breakfast in the beautiful refectory.
Sr. Miguel H, August 2015: The bar was closed, but the information on the web side said it was available.
I missed a hall for reading, watching TV, etc. I would have appreciated a guided visit to the college

Mrs Laurence B, August 2015: Just great !

Ms WAI LING S, August 2015: nice room, we like the long hall for breakfast, wonderful!
Ms Rachel I, August 2015: This was a marvelous experience! The room was mostly as expected--fairly basic, but clean and with adequate space, but having breakfast in the great hall was just fantastic! The students were attentive waiters and greeters.
Ms Chrysoula S, August 2015: Excellent housekeeping services;-)
Mr Kevin M, August 2015: Shower needs updating, Mould and Shower Head was in poor condition.
Other than that, great place.

Mrs Catherine G, August 2015:
Fr. Katja F, August 2015:
Prof Michael A, August 2015: Rooms were a bit old, but all in all, this is a good deal for the price. I plan to go to Keble every time I return to Oxford.
Dr Susan B, August 2015: The college is lovely. And historic. And it is very easy to walk to pubs, museums and public transportation. The staff were gracious and very helpful. I was attending a professional meeting and this worked very well. I would book again for a future trip.
Mr Abdullah A, August 2015:
Mr Philip B, August 2015:
Mrs Maike V, August 2015: Nice experience, beautiful place, room ok, breakfast a bit chill and rather dry bread
Mr Hendrik R, August 2015:
Miss Ruth E, August 2015: I live in a very quiet street, so I found that at night at Keble there was a generator noise, which was very disturbing. I felt sorry for the student because the bed wasn't very comfortable. I also found the background lighting a bit useless for reading by. Apart from these slight grumbles I thought it was great!
Mr Shane O, August 2015: I spent a full week touring Oxford. Keble College was my favorite. So glad a I stayed there. A little out of the historic city center so not quite as loud and tourist-packed. Still a close walk to everything. Excellent and friendly staff and delicious full English Breakfast each morning. The Chapel is particularly worth visiting.
Mr Philip C, August 2015: Marvellous opportunity to stay in the college - fantastic value for money - wonderful breakfast in superb surroundings. Staff all very friendly - I'd have no hesitation of staying here again or recommending it to all.
Mrs Lorna Q, August 2015: Everything fine save for the bedside light which had no socket anywhere nearby - it temptingly had a plug though!
Mr Glen D, August 2015: Staying in one of the colleges really added to the overall experience of the visit.
Mr Mervyn M, August 2015: I was very nice to stay in the college and soak up the atmosphere being academic's from Australia. We really enjoyed Oxford.
Mr Christopher R, August 2015: An enjoyable stay slightly spoilt by a midnight fire alarm incident!!
Dr paolo B, August 2015: My husband and me enjoyed every day spent in Keble College. We were fascinated by the charm of the old college , by the great hall where we had our breakfast, by the great kindness and graciousness of the whole staff.
We'll recommend this place to our Florentine friends!

Miss Fei Chueh L, August 2015: Many thanks for yur offer
Dr Dimitrios B, August 2015: All was excellent. I would appreciate though a lower price, although I understand that Oxford in very expensive.
Mrs Juliana M, August 2015:
Ms Diane G, August 2015: The room was OK. all the furniture was well worn to say the least but it was clean, the bed was fine, and we had a good view of the quad. we were on the third floor and the last flight of steps were very worn. We had to take great care on them. I would say not suitable for older people. I am older and could manage. It would have been nice if someone had offered to take our bags up. The water in our shower was very slow to drain away, and needs attention.
the overall experience was good because it was fun to eat in hall, which is a magnificent room, and I enjoyed getting to know the college and going into the wonderful chapel. I think it's over-priced because of the shabbiness of the room.
Ms Janet K, August 2015: The staff were very kind and helpful. The surroundings were spectacular.
Mrs Laura W, August 2015: Good room for three friends sharing & location excellent. As it is student accommodation it is obviously very basic standard but we knew that and expected it. Beds a bit uncomfy!
Mr David P, August 2015: We were disappointed that instructions we're not passed onto house keeping about early availability of Rooms as we were attending a 2pm wedding at the chapel and only on complaining was something done to get the rooms ready.
Ms Susana C, August 2015: We loved staying at Keble College. The ensuite double room was very comfortable, and we had the added surprise of having Wi-Fi when we did not expect it. Breakfast in the Victorian Hall is amazing as well. Very good location, Great experience!
Dr Colin P, August 2015: The breakfast left a little to be desired, but otherwise Keble is an excellent place to stay.
Mr William J, August 2015:
Mr Edward S, August 2015:
Mr Deukmin P, August 2015:
Mrs Katharina S, August 2015:
Mrs Helen B, August 2015: I was very please with my accommdation and would highly recommend Keble College to friends
Dr Hardeep S, August 2015: enjoyed staying at Keble Hall
Wish there was a better place to park
Miss Jolanta K, August 2015: Wonderful experience! Everything was just perfect: the place, the stuff, the food ant first of all - an unforgettable atmosphere of the collage, knowledge and history! I will definitely come back for more. There is so much to see in Oxford!
Prof Vincenzo L, August 2015: In my period at the Keble College, I had to write the final version of the text of an important lecture for an International Conference in Oxford. I did work quietly and with profitable results. I am convinced that the both the professionalism and the "family-like" style of Keble had a crucial part in my success. Of course, I would like to repeat such a rich experience, for I appreciated very much the cordiality of anyone in the staff. Best Regards,
PhD. Marcello La Matina, University of Macerata (Italy)
Dr Melissa F, August 2015: An excellent place to stay. The quad-facing rooms are quiet, clean, and well-serviced. Plentiful breakfast in a beautiful dining hall. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Mrs Luciana F, August 2015: Fantastic location - central; wonderful breakfasts in stunning dining hall; beautiful view from room over 2 of the 4 quads. Room was basic but to be expected-very old and typical student accommodation. Would definitely recommend.

Miss Swathi S, August 2015:
Dr Christine K, August 2015: Excellent value for money. I will visit again and recommend to others.

Mme. sophie N, August 2015: un peu cher mais il y a de la demande !
Mr Trevor M, August 2015: We had a wonderful time. It could have not been better.
Booking service was excellent, we requested a last minute change to arrive a day later due forecast weather. It was rearranged by yourselves at no additional cost and contributed to us having a great time.
As far as Keble College was concerned, the Reception Staff were extremely welcoming, courteous and helpful.
The catering and waitering team were also Brilliant.
Breakfast was excellent.
The room was serviced every day and we were supplied with fresh towels, soap, shampoos, and various teas etc.
Everyone made great effort to ensure we had a great stay.
We are looking at our dairy and hope to try and book another couple of days within the next few weeks.
Thanking You All,
Sr. Jose Carlos J, August 2015:
Mrs Susan J, August 2015: Such a mix of response really - beautiful place, excellent service and great experience. I didn't have high standards for room beforehand but it was worst than I was expecting. Bed very poor - very painful mattress with springs, sunk in the middle and had bad night. Can cope without TV, bedside lights, pictures, hairdryer, folder of things to do in area or other bits that one comes to expect with accommodation, but I did expect a good nights sleep for the price.
Mr Julian S, August 2015: We had a wonderfuly stay, and would choose the College designed in "holy zebra style" again.
Dr Ibrahim A, August 2015:
Miss Maartje V, August 2015:
Ms Bernice M, August 2015:
Miss Marianne B, August 2015: We had a wonderful stay and would definitely like to come back.
Mr ANGUS L, August 2015: overall experience was good but i was not shown properly the way to my room and that was a bad start . The Hayward building is a very ugly building and despite being next to the lovely old Keble building , I would not want to stay in the monstrosities that aere Hayward or De Breyne again . You should warn guests that Keble rooms may be in this extremely ugly Hayward - type buildings and give them choice .
Mrs Louise C, August 2015: Breakfast and breakfast hall were great. Location great. Room wasn't very nice. It was extremely basic, tap didn't work well, it was boiling hot room. Toiletries and tea making facilities were great. Overall room was fine just over priced for what it was.
Mr finnis D, August 2015:
Mrs Cathy H, August 2015:
Mrs Doreen P, August 2015: Staying at Keeble College was an experience we will all ways remember
Just one criticism - we found the beds were not up to the high standard of the rest of the rooms as they were certainly lumpy

Nicki P, August 2015: I enjoyed the visit at the college. Convenient location , vary good front desk service, and beautiful facility
Dr Helen S, August 2015: Enjoyable stay
Mrs SUSAN G, August 2015: We were very pleased with our rooms and the breakfast was excellent. First time I have booked university accommodation and would not hesitate to do so again- have already recommended to other family members. Booking was easy and efficient- good value for money. Very enjoyable staying in such pleasant and interesting surroundings- thank you.
Mrs Roisin M, August 2015: I was very happy with my stay. Room clean, staff friendly. The hot chocolate and biscuits included with the tea-making facilities were a very nice touch. Also the body lotion included with the shower materials.
Lovely surroundings. Very pleasant to return to after my studies.
Mrs Meriet W, August 2015: The rooms were very pleasant. Unfortunately the wifi did not connect but apart from that it was a very enjoyable stay.
Miss Jihye L, August 2015:
Miss Marion M, August 2015:
Dr Lia Alethea S, August 2015: Keble College's buildings, gardens, environs, location, breakfast, and staff are extraordinary! The only difficulty is the open window, allowing foot and car traffic sounds in all night. However, all you have to do is get a fan from the Porter, shut the window, and the room is completely silent! Loved it!!!!!
Ms Jennifer N, August 2015: Fantastic experience. It was a great way to experience Oxford!
Mr Clive S, August 2015: Very good accomodation near to the city centre. Would use again, although the room faced onto the road and was not double glazed, so traffic noise etc was apparent at night.
Ms Louise G, August 2015: Unfortunately, I was very ill during my stay. The night staff on Wednesday August 5th were very kind and helpful - please give them my utmost thanks for helping me!
Miss Elizabeth M, August 2015:
Mr James D, August 2015: The college provided exactly what we wanted and what they said they did. Room was clean. everything worked, excellent breakfast served efficiently. The basics apart the real joy is the stunning architecture and surroundings of one of Britain's finest Victorian buildings. To have breakfast in such a magnificent hall, to have to walk around the quads, have such a wonderful chapel and be a short walk from the centre of the City were all bonuses along with the helpful porters and gorgeous weather.
Looking forward to going back.
Mr Gabriele F, August 2015: The room was excellent only the bed was not very comfortable. One could feel every coil spring. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Josephine C, August 2015:
Mr James F, August 2015: Really enjoyed my stay at Keble for a night and would recommend it to anyone. The room was clean and fairly spacious, the staff helpful and the provided breakfast was very nice. Keble is also a beautiful place to stay, in particular when going for your breakfast in the main hall. I was also impressed that there was free wifi available in my room, which I was not expecting at all. Overall a positive experience, and I would stay at Keble again.
Mrs Karen C, August 2015:
Miss Meg M, August 2015: We enjoyed every minute of our stay, fantastic atmosphere and fantastic staff!!!
Ms Waltraud T, August 2015: I very much enjoyed my stay in Keble College. The historic buildings were most impressive and I loved having breakfast in the old dininghall.

Ms MaryLouise C, August 2015: The Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the unique benefits of staying a Keble College.
Mrs Freeda G, August 2015: I could not have had a better experience! Thank you to all! God bless, Sue Gray
Mrs Gabriella F, August 2015: I had a lack of water in the bathroom but the maintenance fixed it promptly.
The quads, the dining hall and the breakfast buffet absolutely impressive!
Mrs Nicki B, August 2015: The first time we've been to Keble College and it was a very nice experience!
Mrs sun L, August 2015: I booked three rooms at the same time, specifically so we would be placed together, but were slightly disappointed when the porter picked up keys of rooms down different corridors with access locks. We were unaware of this at check-in, so did not say anything at the time. Overall we were happy.
Mr Jonathan F, August 2015: It was a pleasant experience staying in such interesting surroundings.
Mrs Adele G, August 2015: /very comfortable experience. I would stay at Keble again.
Miss Sophie L, August 2015:

Mrs Jennifer D, August 2015: was happy with my stay. Good value for money. I would recommend staying here

Mrs Ruth D, August 2015: My sister and I loved our stay at Keble - a privilege to be in such historic and beautiful surroundings. Room was simple but provided everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Best part of our stay was breakfast in the Hall - wow!! Good value, central, would definitely stay again & recommend to anyone.
Dr Luciano R, August 2015:
Mr Robert P, August 2015:
Mr John R, August 2015: Had a wonderful stay in a lovely room in beautiful surroundings.
All aspects excellent.
Miss Jiachyi L, August 2015: It was great experience to stay in Oxford U for my teenager kids. Be able to have breakfast in their dinning hall is memorable. The dinning hall is grand just like you saw in the movie.
There is laundry facility. We were on our 2 weeks long journey. It is nice to be able to do laundry near by.
Ms Mary-Margaret G, August 2015: Excellent stay and we would certainly stay here again. But we just about didn't book as we were told by email there was no bike storage. We booked anyway as this seemed unusual for a college. When we arrived, there was a bike storage area for students which was adequately secure and just right for our needs. Better information on this ahead of time would have been helpful.
Ms Alison M, August 2015:
Mrs Judith B, August 2015: It was a wonderfl experience to be there - my husband made the booking so I don't know about the website and his experience -
Thank you for doing this service to visitors! We'll be sure to recommend you to anyone we know who plans to come to Oxford!
Dr Gordon S, August 2015: Apart from the mattress which I did not find very comfortable (I still slept very well!) I cannot think of anything which would improve the Keble experience. Top marks to Porters' Lodge and to serving staff at breakfast. Everything very much exceeded my expectations.
Mr Brad B, August 2015: Great stay - many thanks Keble!
Dr Alexandra B, August 2015: As always, everything was excellent.
The only problem we had was fire alarm, that started at least fife times. I hope that can be fixed.
Mrs Linda C, August 2015: Very impressed by everything. Beautiful building, great service and fab breakfast. All staff were exceptionally polite and helpful.
Dr. Gabriele S, August 2015: Our stay at Keble college was a pleasure from the first to the last minute. Very nice rooms, extremely friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, the college itself with its beautiful buildings and quads, everything was perfect. Thank you so much!
Mrs jane S, August 2015: A lovely stay in beautiful surroundings. The room was equivalent to a good hotel and the breakfast in the Hall was a marvellous experience. The service was rather lacklustre and we weren't really made to feel welcome when we arrived.
Mr Dozie C, August 2015: The room had a strong stench when I arrived, but this dissipated when I opened the window. Apart from this my stay was excellent. Will return in future.
Mrs Margje M, August 2015:
Ms Niamh H, August 2015: Excellent. I'll definitely use this service again.
Dr Heidi B, July 2015: Very pleasant stay. Car parking arrangements could have been helpful.

Mr John T, July 2015: A rope suspending the rightmost window suddenly snapped while we were sleeping, the window closed with a bang and needs repair.
The double bed was too saggy, we each had to sleep on either side to not constantly roll over towards eachother.
All was fine, but expensive.
Mr David S, July 2015: Extremely happy with standard of cleanliness and very polite staff plus great breakfast. very impressed
Ms Gay C, July 2015: Very helpful staff. a lovely place
Ms Aileen L, July 2015: The room was fine, but it was in a modern building. We expected to be in the old part of the college, like our travelling companions were. This should be made clear at the time of booking.
A fridge in the room would be convenient.
The staff in the dining hall were lovely.
Mrs AJ D, July 2015: Absolutely loved it here. I would have liked to have been given the opening times for the bar and its location at the start of our stay. Staff were lovely and helpful. Breakfast was stunning! We will be back.

Mr Chris I, July 2015: Everything was absolutely excellent.
Mr Dennis C, July 2015: I would recommend staying at Keble college to anyone staying in Oxford. Location is excellent and facilities and service is great. Providing Wi-Fi in rooms would improve the experience.

Ms Cath H, July 2015: Dining hall staff particularly helpful and efficient
Mrs Sarah K, July 2015: It was slightly more than I would normally spend on a B&B but the overall value for money was terrific. The experience of staying in the college was great and eating in the longest dining hall in Oxford was fabulous. Speedy Booker is in my phone for future B&Bs.
Mr Bradley C B, July 2015: Luggage storage at the bar was very useful. Complete set of towels provided. Breakfast in the Victorian dining hall was fabulous.
Ms lesley F, July 2015: Staff at Keble were excellent

Dr Emma P, July 2015: Extremely affable and courteous staff, from the porters to the breakfast attendants. The lady cleaning my staircase was also extremely nice and very considerate.
The kettle and hot drinks and biscuits were a lovely surprise - not something that I had expected at this price point!
And, of course, the beautiful "holy zebra"-style Victorian architecture and the flowering quads were delightful.
Ms Jody R, July 2015: Food was excellent, staff was helpful, and location can't be beat!
Prof Howard R, July 2015: The staff in the Porters entrance were excellent. always friendly and helpful. Please pass on my thanks to them. This was my third stay at Keble in the last two years and I have to say that the food has improved. Well done!
Mrs Elizabeth T, July 2015: It was one of the highlights of our trip. My granddaughter aspires to attend Oxford and after our stay in Keble, she is even more determined to make the grade. Thank you for your excellent hospitality.
Mrs Julie B, July 2015: Shower was good.
Ms Sue R, July 2015: I stayed at Keble for two nights with two friends. We had double rooms each in the old part of the building for the first night which were excellent. We moved to the Arco building for the second night, although comfortable we preferred the old building. Facilities and 'provisions' were on a par with a top hotel as was the breakfast. Staff and student guides were friendly and welcoming. Staying at Keble cannot be faulted and have recommended it to friends. Thank you
Mr trevor J, July 2015: We did not have breakfast but there was no option to leave blank, Great value for money in historic surroundings. Hard to beat.

Dr Fulton F, July 2015: University atmosphere makes up for simplicity of rooms. Very comfortable bed. Will definitely stay again.
Ms Philippa L, July 2015: Keble College is lovely and I enjoyed my stay. Breakfast in the Great Hall was a real treat - a wonderful venue and a delicious breakfast!
My room was clean and comfortable. My one criticism is that the window was very stiff and was difficult to open - I had to get a member of staff to come and help me open it. I did appreciate how friendly and helpful he, and the other (very busy) staff members were.
Mrs Elizabeth J, July 2015: The first room I was in for 7 x days, was perfect to study in- a light, quiet environment.
Mrs June P, July 2015: enjoyed the excitement of staying in an oxford college. Staff at Keble all friendly and helpful. Rooms were in an old part of the college and spacious for a family. We had problems getting the shower to run hot otherwise would have all been excellent
Mr Peter H, July 2015: Very nice location with excellent surroundings,great for a weekend break.
Mrs Alyson P, July 2015: It's always a pleasure to stay at Keble College. The room was very pleasant, immaculately clean and well equipped. The breakfast is good and there's entry of it, the dining hall is wonderful and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Why stay in a hotel?
Mrs Min L, July 2015: Fabulous experience for us.
Dr Richard G, July 2015: Much enjoyed and appreciated
Ms Annie S, July 2015: I really enjoyed my stay, breakfast in the very grand setting, and it was great to be shown to my room (not done at the other places). Of the three Oxford Uni B and B's I stayed at it was the best, the only suggestion I would have is to encourage the room guides to be a little more informed about the area, however the reception staff were able top provide the information I needed. I would definitely stay again. Many thanks
Dr Kurt S, July 2015: Great - clean, quiet (facing courtyard). Smart, warm staff.
Will recommend to friends.

Mrs Barbara C, July 2015: Very well situated for using the Park and Ride and also for walking into the centre. Would come again. Excellent all round.
Mr Jonathan H, July 2015: Really good place to stay
Mr Jonathan H, July 2015: Really good stay, location and atmosphere perfect
Ms Andrea B, July 2015: Everything was very smooth re check-in, check-out. The college is beautiful. The room was in a new building - somewhat small and basic but fine for 2 day stay for 2 people. Breakfast in the dining hall was wonderful.
Mr Dennis K, July 2015: We were absolutely overwhelmed by the extraordinary quality of the accommodation, service and atmosphere!
Mr Neil R, July 2015: Found the porters on the front desk weren't that customer friendly facing however the rest of the staff were excellent.
Ms Barbara M, July 2015: Keble college was a very interesting place to stay, the beds were comfortable, the site quiet and the dining room is beautiful. However, the price is a bit steep given the overall accommodation and facilities.
Miss Deborah S, July 2015: My stay at Keble College was wonderful! The room was clean and well-equipped, quiet and conveniently located, in fact I can't wait until my next visit! The Porters were incredibly friendly on arrival and the vegetarian cooked breakfast in the dining hall was a real treat. I loved every minute of my stay, thank you.
Mr Felix S, July 2015: It was a good experience to live in the College. Breakfast was excellent and the surroundings was beautiful and peaceful. A great stay overall!
Mrs Andrea G, July 2015: My son and I stayed in a Keble College twin set, which comprised two spacious single rooms, functional shower room and a mini-kitchen (which we didn't need but fantastic if you were a student there!). The rooms were in the modern Arco block, all gleaming steel and glass. Thinking back to my own college days I wasn't expecting the last word in luxury but everything was spotless, with a set of white fluffy towels laid out, crisp white linen, complimentary shower gel/shampoo/conditioner/body lotion/shower cap and a courtesy tray of beverages and biscuits that would have put many higher priced hotels to shame! For £75 for the two of us I think this represents some of the best value Uni rooms in Oxford and we were delighted. Keble college is stunning and the full breakfast inc. in the price excellent. Plenty of it too. Overall a fantastic experience. Thank you!
Mr Duncan F, July 2015: Accommodation is basic, as expected, and up 3 flights of narrow steps, reflected in price. Good value, with excellent staff and college atmosphere.
Prof Vera M, July 2015: Excellent- a very high standard throughout my stay.
Mrs Susan W, July 2015: A wonderful experience, the room was basic but very good value for money we would not hesitate to use this accommodation again and, are indeed looking to go back in August if at all possible
Ms Helen E, July 2015: I really enjoyed my stay!
Dr David W, July 2015: It was great again, as usual.
Ms Pamela B, July 2015: LOVED staying at Keble. Having breakfast (and a good one at that) in the Dining Hall was well worth the stay. All the staff were very kind. Will come back!
Mrs Pamela B, July 2015: Absolutely loved staying in an Oxford College. As a history buff it was a wonderful experience to stay in the old part of the building and eat in the Great Hall. All the staff were exceptionally professional and friendly. From me, highly recommended.
Ms Lorna D, July 2015: Super modern room with good ensuite, towels and range of toiletries. Lovely to walk across the charming quad Breakfast in hall a great experience. I'd strongly recommend this over a normal B&B or hotel for anyone visiting Oxford.
Mrs H.Diane B, July 2015: I have written today to the university to give my thanks, particularly to Esther and Elizabeth at the Porters Lodge. They were exceptionally kind and helpful and charming.
Dining Hall a great experience.
My stay was a highlight of my time in Oxford.
Dr LEONARDO D, July 2015: Nice, spacious, quiet, clean, modern room. Comfortable bed. Shower with pretty good water pressure. Very good breakfast -both continental and English- in a lovely dining room.
On the negative side: The website stated that the room would have wi-fi. But it did not. There was wi-fi in other areas of the college, but not in my room. This should be made clear in the website description.
Ms Helen B, July 2015: I have never been to university myself and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In fact I could quite happily have stayed forever! The value for money was incredible in the most beautiful surroundings. Sadly for the Oxford hotels, I see no reason to stay in a hotel when you have the option to stay close to all amenities and colleges for a fraction of the cost. I would have enjoyed a wireless connection and perhaps a small television but having said that the rooms were more than adequate and the peace and quiet was a welcome change. From reserving the room online to our day of departure the personable service was so flawless. Thank you. Helen Burnett
Mrs Virginia M, July 2015: Absolutely fine. Having been at the University I knew what to expect with the room. So whilst not luxurious it was absolutely fine for my requirements and the en suite was an added bonus.
Dr Zoe A, July 2015: The staff who worked on reception on 3 July were very helpful and kind.
Mr John P, July 2015: Keble staff were very helpful and unintrusive.
Mr Nicholas R, July 2015: Will use this service and book again in future - good overall experience.
Prof Alan D, July 2015: beautiful setting, looking out over the grassy quad and the hall and library opposite
Mr Neil M, July 2015: We would definitely do this again. It is not luxury accommodation but it is clean and spacious and everything we needed.
Mrs Elaine L, July 2015: Fantastic experience, lovely to stay in in such a historic building and eat our breakfast in the Gothic hall. All staff were polite and courteous and the room was a delight and beautifully clean and a really comfortable bed
Mrs Carolyn T, July 2015: The location is excellent being adjacent to the science faculties.
The college gardens were particularly splendid in midsummer.
We were prepared to pay for these conveniences but felt it could have been better value for money.
Mrs Diane M, July 2015: Fantastic experience,we would definitely recommend staying here.
Ms Amira H, July 2015: The staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. I will surely stay at Keble College once again.
Mrs Rebecca O, July 2015: Overall experience was poor, not because of facilities but because of some very loud guests and loud traffic on road outside
Mr Alan O, June 2015: Great spot to stay, beautiful buildings are the perfect Oxford experience, only suggestion is to extend the breakfast service until 10 am: 9am finish is a bit early.
Mrs Maria D, June 2015: Would have loved a room on the garden (quiet!) side of the building. Main street is very noisy ..... and it did not look as though rooms were full.
Great location, however.
Ms Kirsten H, June 2015: Good location for exploring the town - awesome breakfast hall (you feel a bit as if you find yourself in a Harry Potter movie) - room was spacious and good enough - only thing that was a bit annoying was that it was on the ground floor and there were pupil that chatted quite noisily (sitting onn the bench outside the the room) until 4 in the morning
Mr Andrew O, June 2015: Good value in Oxford. Keble an impressive and interesting college. Note that the bed was small. Any taller than I am (6ft) would find it a bit awkward. Otherwise pleasant.
Mr Eddie S, June 2015: All staff friendly and efficient. Would happily repeat experience.
Ms Janice O, June 2015: I inly stayed one night but I arrived tired and frazzled direct via bus from Heathrow and the welcome I got and the assistance at the front desk were wonderful. The room was lovely though it was a job dragging my case up 2 flights of stairs. A great hot shower and a lovely outlook made up for that. Then breakfast was amazing then next morning. Well worth it.
Dr Elizabeth T, June 2015: Beautiful place, great service.
Mrs Julianna C, June 2015: We loved the college setting and central location.
Mrs Rebecca L, June 2015: Thank you for a wonderful stay. The room was comfy and extremely clean. I really enjoyed my visit.
Miss Katharine W, June 2015: This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience at an unbeatable value! The most convenient way to see Oxford and the closest you can come to the student experience as a tourist. The porters were so helpful and having the desk manned 24/7 was great... had a 4:30am checkout and the porter was there to help call me and cab and make sure I left safely.
Mrs C. D, June 2015: Excellent value for centre of Oxford. Within very easy reach of city centre. Breakfast particularly impressive on top table in the great hall. Even an Hermione double waiting on the steps for fellow students!
Mrs Kathy C, June 2015: Really enjoyed our stay at Keble College. The breakfast was wonderful, with plenty of choice, and of course the surroundings where wonderful! Overall, a great experience.
Mrs Willeminee D, June 2015: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Keble College and have no hesitation I recommending staying there to friends, family and acquaintances.
Mrs Karen L, June 2015: Everyone on staff at Keble College was professional. We had a delightful stay.
Miss Sarah G, June 2015: Overall great experience, unfortunately had a noisy shower (the heating system seemed to make lots of banging/clonking noises early in the morning and even more so when you had the shower on)
Dr Catherine M, June 2015: The room was very well set up and extremely clean. Tea and coffee things perfect they went the extra mile on that. A routine hairdryer would be good. There were some strange things about the shower and the electricity; you could not turn the hot and cold on separately you had to go through the cold to get to the hot, so if you soaped yourself up with the water off and then turned it back on again you started with cold water again, so you could not set the temp mix you wanted and turn it off and back on at the same temp; also the kettle seemed to stop and start like the electricity came and went. Otherwise we loved it and would definitely recommend it.
Ms Patricia G, June 2015: I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Keble College. Accomodations were somewhat spartan, but clean, comfortable, and very functional for my 2-day stay before meeting up with others. Setting was beautiful; breakfast was good. Subsequently stayed in a much more expensive accommodation in Oxford but overall, preferred my Keble College room for setting and value.
Mr Terkel L, June 2015: A fantastic experience - will recommend to all friends here in Denmark
Ms Susan J C, June 2015: Fantastic place to stay. Very efficient and helpfull staff. Rooms very comfortable and spacious. Loved the experience, given we were residents of a uni college at Uni of Qld in Australia during our student years.
Mr Ian L, June 2015: Previous we had a Quad view - well worth the extra money if available.
As we mentioned last year we really miss not having a T.V . in the room .
Many thanks again - had a great stay .
Ms Jackie W, June 2015: Beautiful place to stay. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Ms Helen W, June 2015: Lovely room, good welcome
Terrible, weak tea at breakfast
Mr Antony M, June 2015: Excellent experience. Would like to return.
Dr Colin P, June 2015: Did not eat breakfast. Room was basic, but clean. Very good value.
Ms Shamain E, June 2015: i had excellent service and would recommend Keble college to all my colleagues and friends. The service was efficient. The room was very comfortable. the staff were courteous, helpful and personable.
Mr MiCHAEL H, June 2015: excellent in all respects
Mrs Julie C, June 2015: An excellent experience thoroughly enjoyable
Mrs Pauline M, June 2015: The only way to experience Oxford! Go on immerse yourself in the true spirit of this unique city!
Dr Peter M, June 2015: I left an item in the room, and Keble very quickly found the item and posted it back to me recorded delivery - I was very impressed with the service!
Ms Alayne A, June 2015: Friendly and helpful porters; spotless rooms; plentiful and hot, hot water (although temp does fluctuate a little, which is disconcerting if not expecting it).
Mrs Claire C, May 2015: A delightful stay in the heart of Oxford, very professional and welcoming staff, please pass on our thanks for their very high standards of service. Room and facilities excellent.
Mrs Jan D, May 2015: We loved our College experience and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Our room had a lovely outlook and taking breakfast in the dining room at high table was a highlight!
Mr Kai J, May 2015: It is a great experience to be let in on a working Oxford college.
You feel the course of history.
Mr David H, May 2015: It was absolutely wonderful over looking the quad! Great room. Perfect!
Ms Jesica S, May 2015: We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Keble College, though it would have been appreciated to have access to lifts. The college is impressive and the rooms were in excellent condition. The porters were also very kind. It is a must experience when in Oxford.
Mrs Joan P, May 2015: I love the architecture and the sense of history. I felt welcome and well looked after. I slept well and was pleased to be able to walk easily into the centre of Oxford. I loved seeing the students go off to their exams wearing gowns and carnations. I wanted to hug them and wish them luck!
Mr Peter S, May 2015: All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Room perfect, very clean and well furnished. Very happy.
Mr Peter T, May 2015: A wonderful stay in a wonderful location.
Ms Nanci Astwood K, May 2015: if only our other accommodations throughout England could match our Keble College stay. We simply loved it, and we hope to return. Thank you for your great service and excellent staff.
Dr Namrata M, May 2015: We loved our stay at Keble College. The rooms were impeccable - neat and clean, the bedding, the towels and pretty much everything! The quad facing room was a delight!
This is by far one of my most favourite college B&Bs in Oxford.
Mrs Rikke R, May 2015: I would love to come back! Especially all the staff at the front desk gave an excellent service - THANK you and please say hi to them.
Greetings from Denmark
Ms Rie K, May 2015: I had a pleasant stay and it was a wonderful experience to stay such a beautiful building. Thank you so much.
Miss Clare M, May 2015: Very pleased with my stay. The amenities in the room where excellent, the bed was comfortable, the staff very pleasant on arrival and departure. The room was clean and had everything that I needed for my stay in an excellent and beautiful location.
Dr Mary H, May 2015: Great- great meals, great room, helpful porters - This was wonderful. Many thanks.
Mrs Karen D, May 2015: Facilites great but the mattress in our room was (sadly) very uncomfortable - but I hasten to add that this was the ONLY criticism that we had. Incredible venue and an incredible place to stay. Staff were amazingly helpful!
Mr Merrill M, May 2015: A fantastic, beautiful and historic accommodation with access to all that Oxford has to offer. Rooms are basic but very comfortable and the setting is unparalleled.
Mr Timothy R T, May 2015: Fabulous experience
Ms Mary E, May 2015: I had an ensuite, quad facing room. Well worth the money as the others face the street and probably have some noise. the room was an updated room in an old victorian building. the best of both worlds. The full breakfast was in a dining hall out of Hogwarts. Except for the library I had free range of the college including four courtyards and a chapel. Oxford was walkable from here and although Oxford was amazing the best part of my visit was my stay in Keble College.
Dr Jerry L, May 2015: Very clean and comfortable
Quiet apart from the corridor doors
Mr Justyn C, May 2015: Good experience overall. Would use again. I did not have the breakfast, so cannot comment on that.
Mrs Felicity K, May 2015: Everything about our stay was very good indeed. The room was beautifully arranged and breakfast in Hall was a wonderful experience. There couldn't have been a better way of beginning our son's graduation celebrations.
Mrs SUzanne Z, May 2015: Excellent. Looking forward to my next visit.
Mr Eric W, May 2015: We had a fantastic time with our stay. I would certainly stay again. It's really hard to find any fault. An excellent stay! There were even good biscuits with the tea in the room! Thanks
Mr Richard F, May 2015: Lovely room, buildings and gardens. And did you ever have breakfast in such a hall? Nice to be in close walking distance to the beautiful buildings and the high street. I hope we can visit again soon!
Mr Peteris Z, May 2015: Enjoyable.
Ms Brenna S, May 2015: I stayed at Keble in April and had such a fantastic stay that I decided to squeeze one more night in at the end of my vacation. I'm so glad there was a room available at such short notice. Thank you so much for such a fantastic stay (well, two stays, actually). Everything was absolutely wonderful (although I seemed to have trouble with the wifi network both times). I don't know when I'll make it back to Oxford, but whenever that is, accommodations at Keble College will definitely be my first choice.
Dr Nigel J, May 2015: Naturally, as an Oxford graduate (5 degrees), I am biased in favour of Oxford and as Keble was available as the closest room to my Oxford Medical Alumni Dinner. I chose keble as my own college Pembroke) had not any available rooms.
Good luck with continuing the system!
Dr Nigel T James.
Mr Peter D, May 2015: It was good to live for a short while within the College environment
Mr Jeffrey P, May 2015: The staff at the front desk were very professional, helpful and courteous.
Prof Michael K, May 2015: A very good college to stay in.

Mrs Dido D, May 2015: Beautiful surroundings, excellent facilities, exceptionally kind and interesting staff. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Dr Esben S, May 2015: I had a great experience at Keble College. The room was of of a high standard, the breakfasts great and the surrounding college and gardens were atmospheric. I also found the staff at the porter's lodge very helpful and friendly.
Prof Sidney K, May 2015: Keble is delightful, the staff in both the porters' lodge and the dining hall were extremely accommodating. The only thing which could be improved is the mattress/bed which was old and a bit kreaky, while everything else- bathroom fixtures, lights, furniture, appeared brand new and very good.
Mr Dayl M, May 2015: Great place to stay - will happily stay there again.
Mrs Lindsay N, May 2015: It was a great place to stay . The only reason I put an average for service is that the young woman who gave us our room keys etc. was not very welcoming.
Mr Rudolph G, April 2015: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Keble College and would recommend it to anyone that wants to visit Oxford. It gives you a 'university-feel' of Oxford. Sitting at the high tabel at breakfast in your magnificent hall tops it all off.
Dr Daniel A, April 2015: The room and facilities were generally excellent. There was just one problem: the fire alarm in the room had a very bright flashing LED that made it hard to get to sleep at first.
Mrs Caroline B, April 2015: It was brilliant. Spotless room, very helpful & friendly staff. Breakfast was fantastic. The college has the 'wow' factor. It was a privilege to be there. Loved it!
Dr. Teresa P, April 2015: The room was very comfortable, newly refurbished and generous in size. Breakfast in Hall was very good. Only problem was that I didn´t have internet access in my room: I had to go to the Porter´s Lodge for that, which was massively inconvenient. For a longer stay it would have been completely unacceptable. (This is the "average" service.)
Mrs Bridget S, April 2015: Lovely setting and the breakfast in the dining hall was a superb experience and the staff at the college were very helpful, would definitely recommend this accommodation to friends.
Mr Liang S, April 2015: Great place to enjoy the breakfast - like in the movies of Harry Potter.

Mr Keith C, April 2015: splendid - as ever
Mrs marie C, April 2015: I was surprised how smooth check in and check out went. It was also appreciated that I was able to leave my bags until I was able to pick up my car.
Mrs Rukhsana Y, April 2015: I really enjoyed my stay at the college and loved the beautiful grounds. I had a lovely chat with the person in charge of all the grounds- what an amazingly wonderful man- Thank-you!
Mr James W, April 2015: Great way to see Oxford and experience 'college' life.
Miss Carolien D, April 2015: My overall experience was very smooth & I enjoyed staying at the College. Water pressure in the shower was very low, which may be something you could do something about. Otherwise all great!
Miss Cristina D, April 2015: I was very happy with the room. Everything was very clean and the towels, complimentary toiletries and tea bags were replaced every morning. Also the breakfast was delicious!
Mr Pavel P, April 2015: I love this place!?
Mr Carl S, April 2015: Room bare bones, but adequate. Dining hall beautiful. Food was plentiful and good. Keble College central to everything.

Prof Jorunn O, April 2015: I will definitely come again!
Miss Ruth R, April 2015: Lovely. Right near the maths institute. Check in process very swift.
Mrs Patricia L, April 2015: Easy check in, very friendly staff. Secure accommodation that felt safe and the rooms were good for the price. Breakfast venue was excellent with smart and courteous staff albeit the food was average though very welcome and included in the rate. Would definitely return to this type of accommodation. Thank you
Mr Dil S, April 2015: No frills accommodation but luxury was not the reason we stayed there. That said, the surroundings were beautiful and the highlights were the stunning chapel and the grand dining room. Porters were very helpful. Would very much recommend it.
Dr Huw W, April 2015: Good welcome, comfortable and good impression of the college
Dr Jane S, April 2015: Wifi access was a bit slow and had a bit of trouble with key to access the corridor but otherwise everything very good.
Mr Moacyr Roberto C, April 2015: very pleasant and beautiful place
Mr Guillermo C, April 2015: Everything went really well, not a single complain.
Mr carlito R, April 2015: The location is great. It is very near the library.

Mrs Elena P, April 2015: Thank you ! we enjoyed the stay with you and we'll recommend you to our friends, here in Canada and anywhere. Because of us, you had two more rooms booked for our friend from Wien and our cousin from Cluj-Napoca , they also were very happy staying at Keble College, Oxford
Dr Thisara W, April 2015: It was a wonderful experience
Mrs Catherine Y, April 2015: We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Everyone was extremely courteous. porters lodge were very helpful. We particularly appreciated tour of college with Boriana. Many Thanks, Catherine Young
Dr Giannoulis F, April 2015: Everyone at Keble College, particularly the staff at the Porters' Lodge, were very helpful.
Ms Catherine J, April 2015: Overall it I had a fantastic stay - the staff were excellent and facilities lovely. The staff in the porters lodge were especially helpful and friendly. The only improvement for me would be access to non-dairy milk options at breakfast. Many thanks, Catherine

Mrs Jill S, April 2015: We loved the whole experience and will plan to do it again in the future.
Ms Sylvie S, April 2015: It was a terrific experience to be back in College, and we enjoyed our stay tremendously.
Prof Aaron B, April 2015: Keble was the perfect place to stay for my working visit to Oxford, only minutes away from the academic department where I was meeting and minutes from the town centre.
Mr Peter C, April 2015: Overall, a very good experience. The room internally was a bit dated.
Mrs Janice P, April 2015: Good value for money. Cleanliness was a little poor. Could do with removing the mould in the shower and new blinds and curtains.
Mr Andrew H, April 2015: Excellent
Miss Ingrid M, April 2015: Overall, the standard of everything was very good. The only thing I had an issue with was the noise of the minifrige in my room. It made it hard to sleep, even with ear plugs.
Mr John W, April 2015: The room was maintained throughout our stay to a high standard. The catering staff providing the breakfast were very friendly, polite and helpful. Food was of very good quality.
Mr Greg L, April 2015: Although the room was basic, it was clean, had good WiFi and a lovely (if slightly restricted) view of the Quad. It was pleasing to find towels and a nice selection of toiletries provided as well as tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The dining room was amazing and a good variety of good quality food at breakfast (even had a selection of teas, I love my Earl Grey!)
Mr Jay S, April 2015: Great value for money, lovely setting, impressive architecture.
Mr Marcel S, April 2015: Desk staff very helpful, great location and ambience! Thank you

like a dream. And Oxford itself is always worth a visite. We'll come again. And again...
Mr John G, April 2015: No curtain in bathroom window, fridge in room but unable to connect up because it was out of reach of power point. However, overall a very enjoyable experience. Good location, breakfast excellent.
Mr John H, April 2015: Great thanks.
Mrs Shirley F, April 2015: A lovely experience. Room clean and comfortable. Wonderful setting!

Mrs sonja L, April 2015: Facility was clean and basic. Was very happy yo have Wi-Fi access.

Mrs Alison L, April 2015: All staff very helpful. Great location and easy walking distance to city centre
Mr Claude B, April 2015: It would be great if guests could receive a key for entering by the gate where the bike racks are, as carrying the bikes up the stairs to the bike racks is quite difficult, especially for a child. Otherwise, wonderful stay at Keble College.
Mrs M Jane S, April 2015: My sisters and I had a wonderful time in Oxford and loved the experience of staying at Keble College. Our only criticism was the lumpy beds!!
Mr Giuseppe I, April 2015: the night porter is not very nice and helpful.

Ms julie M, March 2015: Wonderful!
Mr Stephen P, March 2015: This was a charming experience in a beautiful setting.
It would have helped a little to have the a description of the actual entrance to the college as the gate was closed when we arrived at 8pm and it took a little while to realize where the entrance was.
All in all though really good. Thank you
Mr Toby M, March 2015: Really enjoyed my stay, and breakfast was terrific, as well as being in very beautiful surroundings. Much cheaper than other options in Oxford, too.
Mr Steven B, March 2015: The breakfast hall is a real treat to eat in. Rooms are clean and spacious a no look recently decorated.
Mr Pierre M, March 2015: Had a lovely stay at Keble, will def. come back again when visiting Oxford for a few days again
Miss Christine C, March 2015: Peaceful, pleasant view of quad. Good size bathroom and shower with windows (for ventilation). Warm etc. Breakfast in beautiful Great Hall with very helpful staff.
Mrs Karen S, March 2015: Have been to the lovely Keeble College before so was able to show the "other half" the beautiful Chapel and knew how fantastic the refectory is. However, if I had not known this, would have been fairly disappointed with the bedroom and ensuite. The hot water tap on the basin did not work and you could see that the sink was not sufficiently clean and the shower was calcified! Having said that, you are buying into a bit of history and I would still be pleased to go there again.
Mr Andrew K, March 2015: Great experience, breakfast in the great hall was a once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommended!
Dr Julie S, March 2015: The whole week was an unforgettable experience. The porters in particular were so kind and helpful in letting me store my folding bike and in offering help in and out of the lodge. Catering staff too, went out of their way to be polite and helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble for anyone. It was a special privilege to be able to stay there and staff should be commended. I hope to return will upgrade next time! Thank-you to everyone
Dr Caroline S, March 2015: Lovely setting. Room basic but comfortable. Nice food - fabulous dinner hall.

Mr Gordon H, March 2015: Porters' Lodge was particularly helpful.
Prof Jacqueline S T, March 2015: Thank you. My daughter and I enjoyed being there very much. The room and bath were immaculate, and the shower was the best we had on this trip which included Paris and London as well as Oxford.
We hope to return to your accommodations in the future.
Sincerely, Dr. Jacqueline thursby
Dr Tim J, March 2015: Very good value for money as always.
College staff were very helpful when needed.

Mr Carew S, March 2015: Student accommodation is never going to be the Ritz, but as cheap and cheerful it's OK. Wifi would have been good.

Dr Reinhold B, March 2015: I especially liked that it was possible to extend my stay for another night after my flight was cancelled due to a strike.
Mr Sonny M, March 2015: A nice stay. Hearty breakfast and easy walking distance to town center. The Oxford Dons may have averted their eyes at the brick structure, but quite lovely.
Mrs Joan R, March 2015: So impressed, showers were great, breakfast was excellent and rooms were so comfortable we are coming again with a booking of around 7 rooms thank you so much and my great uncles picture was hanging in the room we had our breakfast so that was a surprise Charles Hayward and also a Quad named after him.
Thank you very much
Miss Stephanie H, March 2015: The porters were very helpful and let us check out a bit late - we were incredibly central and had everything we needed. We didn't have breakfast so cannot comment.
Ms Lauren C, March 2015: For a weary traveller, it would have been helpful to have been prompted to get the wifi code at reception. When I finally retired to my room after a long day at work, I had undressed before I realised I needed such a code. A gentle prompt would get around this. Otherwise, an extremely tidy room, and friendly porters made the experience pleasant.
Mrs Paula H, March 2015: We really liked the refurbished rooms. Well thought out well lit and helpful sockets and mirrors all in the right place.
Mr David H, March 2015: Top rate B&B, excellent value!
Prof Anthony S, March 2015: I would stay again
Mrs Rosemary Y, March 2015: Very impressed and very good value for money. Two minor points: shower thermostat very erratic; and just to be fussy, some sort of basic clock radio would have been appreciated. But otherwise a very high standard of accommodation and very courteous and helpful porters. Will certainly book again.
Mrs Rachael H, January 2015: Had a wonderful time at Keble College. The room amenities were fabulous and the breakfast in the hall was the most amazing experience that I will never forget :-)
Mrs Elaine W, January 2015: Very helpful service from Porters' Lodge on arrival; room well serviced, clean and fully stocked hospitality tray; was good to have option of earlier Continental breakfast or slightly later full English - food choice was excellent. Would recommend. Thank you Keble College/staff.
Ms Louise K, January 2015: Fantastic place to stay at! I will definitely come back if possible. But what about complementing the toast with some normal bread for the foreigners :)
Mrs Hilary H, January 2015: Stunning surroundings. Lovely room - very clean and quiet. Scented Daphne in herbaceous bed as you went into the accommodation just filled the air with perfume. Generous and tasty breakfast all included. Really great stay.
Mrs Claire M, January 2015: Staff all unfailingly kind and helpful. Thank you.

Mr David K, October 2014: A delightful experience in an exceptionally clean and comfortable en suite room. Just one thing though: As it was a double room it would have been more convenient to have two bedside tables and lamps instead of just one.
Mr Maurice O, October 2014: I have stayed in a no. of Colleges and Keble rates highly in my opinion. Lovely quad view , and nice bright room.
Rushed breakfast - so maybe not a fair assessment.

Ms SUSAN B, October 2014: Need new mattress. People who work there are great. Loved breakfast.
Mr Samuel C, October 2014: Generally excellent and beautiful. Only complaint is that the curtains were not so effective in keeping the light out.

Mr David O, September 2014: Check-in was easy. Room and ensuite were clean and tidy. Toiletries and towels were more than adequate. Tea making facilities were good, even had speciality teas (I brought peppermint but did not need to). Breakfast was good although I would like to have had porridge as a choice. Only thing I would like to have known when booking was which quad I had a view of, was a bit disappointed with Newman Quad when you compare to Liddon Quad. Highly recommended as a unique experience all the same.
Dr Martin B, September 2014: Wonderful experience. Enjoyed the accommodations and Oxford in general.
Mr ZHENG M, September 2014: Excellent place to stay in Oxford. Near to most colleges. A little bit far from High street but nice 10 minutes walk there. Services are high standard, breakfast is served in a Hall, which is very University style.

Miss Amanda W, September 2014: Stayed to attend an event in the college where the staff could not have been more helpful.

Mrs Vicki S, September 2014: Loved the overall experience, especially the initial impact of walking into the Dining Hall for breakfast. The College has a peacefulness about it, the Chapel is lovely, just a little noisy in late evening/early morning with people congregating below our open window after a big night out.

Mr Søren H, September 2014: A very good experience - quite up to my expectations - hope to come back
Dr David W, September 2014: Unable to use wifi notwithstanding instruction sheet, which did not appear to correspond to the website. This was the only slight disappointment, otherwise my experience was excellent, thanks to all involved.

Mr Allan M, September 2014: Just what we wanted. To be inside one of these fantastic colleges and see and be a part. Well worth living in halls just to be there.

Mr Graham H, September 2014: Great atmosphere and location

Excellent left luggage facilities.
Thank you for letting us check in and get into our rooms 2 hours early
Ms Suzanne T, August 2014: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Keble College, and would recommend friends to visit. Next time I would request a room with wi-fi, ahead of time. I also didn't realize that dinner reservation can only be made online with 24 hours notice. We would have liked to have dinner at Keble as well! Next time.... thoroughly beautiful college and very friendly porters.
Mrs Lorraine L, August 2014: We had a good one night's stay.Thought a nice touch having the toiletries and biscuits and water. Wasn't expecting that.We looked around Christchurch and preferred Keble College.Listening to the choir in the Chapel was lovely.A pleasant comfortable stay.Good character, much better than staying in normal B n B. :-)

Mrs Xiaoyu L, August 2014: Perfect place!
Mrs Janet H, August 2014: We were slightly disappointed that we were allocated rooms in a modern facility, rather than one of the older rooms. However, no big deal. Even though Keble is not one of the ancient colleges of Oxford, the atmosphere was still amazing, especially at breakfast in the huge hall. Have already recommended the experience to friends.
Miss Allison H, August 2014: We absolutely loved our stay at Keble College. The rooms were simple but completely adequate. The dining hall was lovely and memorable, and the grounds were breathtaking. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do in Oxford. We were so happy with our experience there, and would return in a heartbeat!
Mrs Louise V, August 2014: Everything was absolutely perfect . The experience of spending a night in such a historical and cultural rich environment will remain one of the high lights of all my travels. Thank you indeed!

Mrs Jan L, August 2014: Staying in Keble College was a very special experience as we got to see how students live in an Oxford College. The surroundings are so beautiful that we shall never forget them. A visit to the chapel and a stroll through the quadrangles are a must .
Mrs Rosalind J, August 2014: wonderful experience to dine in Keble.
Mrs Kyoko K, August 2014: Very carmful atmospher, simple room and breakfast at historical place. It was really interesting staying for us.

Mr John R, August 2014: A very pleasant stay. Thank you
Mr Robert K, August 2014: The front desk was clearly more concerned about keys than our overall satisfaction.
Guest convenience and satisfaction needs attention.
Rooms were well maintained, clean, adequately appointed and met our needs.
Ms Johanna L, August 2014: Great as always. However the popularity of Keble makes it difficult to get rooms on consecutive nights.
Mrs Anne S, August 2014: We had a wonderful stay in Oxford and particularly staying at Keble. The only thing I would say is that I would have liked to have known there was a fridge in the room - I only discovered it as we were leaving! Great room - lovely and clean and would definitely recommend.
Prof Yael Z, August 2014: I enjoyed staying at Keble College. Thank You!
Ms fiona M, August 2014: We had a quad-facing room - very peaceful with a beautiful outlook. The room had everything we needed (bottled water, herb teas, coffee etc) and was clean and comfortable. Lovely breakfast, eaten in a stunning hall. All staff were friendly and helpful.
Mr Kiyoshi T, August 2014: I could have a great experience in historic dorm. If I could see television in somewhere in the dorm, it would be more fun.
Dr Sarah H, August 2014: Wifi didn't work in the room. Otherwise, very good experience.
Mrs Gillian R, August 2014: Very enjoyable stay will stay again
Mr Marilyn M, August 2014: We were comfortable in our room (but the shower drain needs cleaning), enjoyed breakfast in the hall, and loved the general atmosphere of Keble College, as well as its location. Thank you!
Mr wayne S, August 2014: We were a little disappointed with the location of the room, we believed that the extra £25 we paid would give us a quad room (in the victorian building) but both our room were in the Arco building and one of them only had a partial view of the green space outside, most of my view was overlooking the bike racks. Other than this our stay was lovely, we had lovely food in beautiful surroundings, the extras in the room were a nice touch and it was lovely and clean. I would come again but wouldn't pay the extra next time.
Mrs Joëlle A, August 2014: Wonderfull experience. If I come back to Oxford during summer, I'll book earlier to be sure to spend all the nights at the Keble.
Mr Sjoerd I, August 2014: we liked it very much in Oxford
Prof Alan G, August 2014: This was a great place to stay. Quiet. Respectful. Amazing breakfast hall. And the porters were so very friendly. Excellent value for money. Thank you.

Dr Robin H, August 2014: I would be happy to use the system again for another holiday. It is very convenient and easy to use.
Mrs mary anne H, August 2014: Everything from website to check in and check out was well organised and ran without a hitch. Able to check in 2 hours earlier than expected which was a bonus. All staff very friendly, professional and helpful. Facilities were clean, comfortable, quiet and as expected. Dinner in the Dining Hall (additional cost) was a lovely experience - it was not high end dining but the food was good and such a lovely atmosphere and surroundings with efficient service made it well worthwhile. Being able to leave luggage all day after checkout was also very useful. Keble is within walking distance of pretty much everywhere in the city. I would definitely recommend it and would love to stay again
Miss Theresa Camilla Gallagher D, August 2014: It was such a great experince. I hope to come back next year. Good service and very friendly and welcoming staff - both at reception and the room cleaners.
Dr Sheila G, August 2014: This was my second visit to Keble College.
On both occasions the staff were very helpful and I found the facilities excellent.
Ms Helen M, August 2014: It was a real treat for me to stay at such a beautiful college and eat in the impressive dining room. I also appreciated the location of the college -- very central and interesting museums and a park just across the street. The porters were very helpful and courteous. The room was charming and kept very clean.
Dr Dennis G, August 2014: Would stay again, breakfasts could be improved - less canteen like
Mr Jeremy M, August 2014: Excellent value for money
Mrs Adriana V, August 2014: Great accomodation at Keble college! Unforgettable breakfasts in the great hall
Dr Christian D, August 2014: Excellent experience, and very friendly staff at the front desk. Only the student bar was a little bit disappointing.
Mrs Helle R, August 2014: We enjoyed our stay in the College, afterwards we stayed in a very expensive Hotel in London and were not so glad about the room, because the set up of your Room were so practical ! Thank You!
Ms Shelly K, August 2014: I definitely enjoyed my stay at Keble College. The ambiance of the place is the best part of all. The internet, of course, was a frustration since the signal doesn't penetrate most of the Arco rooms, but the good thing was that it forced me to be outside and to enjoy the beautiful courtyard and chapel--good thing the weather was good. Cheers!
Mrs Fiona W, August 2014: ideal spot for central Oxford. Lovely accommodation and very comfy bed.
Mrs Jacqueline A, August 2014: rooms were generally clean, but the beds were very uncomfortable and the rooms were very noisy, so didn't really get much sleep. in 1809 there were problems getting the shower to work. That said the college is lovely and the staff are very friendly, breakfast was excellent so overall we enjoyed our stay.
Mr Gareth R, August 2014: Excellent location and a great setting but it is what it is, a night in student accommodation
Mr Mark F, August 2014: A slightly later check out (11am) and breakfast (to 10am) for a Sunday would be useful - also the spoon in my room didn't seem to be clean but otherwise it was all very good.
Miss Louise D, August 2014: Breakfast was OK - just a fryup and fruit which could have been gotten at any hotel. Croissants seemed like Tesco packet ones rather than fresh. Jugs of orange juice on the tables was a nice touch. Only 2 normal teabags in the room - could have had more stock. Can't beat the surroundings.
Dr Anita H, August 2014: Beautiful buildings and surroundings.
Hr. Frank S, August 2014: Sehr freundliches Personal. Park + Ride leider ca. 4 km vom College entfernt, aber mit guter Busanbindung. Zimmer zweckmäßig und sauber eingerichtet. Bettgestell leider aus Quietschmetall. Wunderschöne Halle, in der auch das Frühstück eingenommen wird. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen.
Mrs Jennifer M, August 2014: Comfortable and pleasant stay in such a beautiful surroundings !
Mrs Yvonne O, August 2014: This was the second time we have stayed in Oxford University rooms - Keble was much better than Balliol - but our stay there was 4 years ago. Excellent all round - particularly like the hotel quality towels/toiletries and tea & coffee making facilities. We will use the service again and highly recommend it to others.
Mr David K, August 2014: Loved having the opportunity to stay in a Cillege, particularly so close to the heart of Oxford. If in Oxford again I would stay at Keble.
Ms Nana Akyaa A, August 2014: Great atmosphere, nice people, wonderful experience
Mrs Sarah C, August 2014: A brilliant way to sample university life and feel slightly less of a tourist in Oxford! Room was what you would expect from student accommodation - ghastly carpets, basic bathroom but comfortable as a base for a couple of nights. Really nice to have the college bar facility to relax and play table tennis etc. Breakfast in the Dining hall was lovely! Would certainly do it again if visiting Oxford.
Ms Anna G, August 2014: Staff were most helpful and amenities very good considering the very special accommodation. Thank you
Mrs Hilde E, August 2014: The place to stay when in Oxford! We really enjoyed it.
Miss Tana H, August 2014: Amazing building and the breakfast room was an experience in itself, breathtaking! To my mind this is almost a must do experience if you are visiting Oxford. Excellent location to the centre also. Only complaint would be a lumpy mattress and the shower could have been a tad cleaner. However I would overlook this and definitely recommend it/stay again.
Ms Mary F, August 2014: Lots of help with accessing wi-fi; thank you. Left luggage arrangements also superior.
Ms Ayano K, August 2014: The garden was beautiful.
Mr Paul B, July 2014: Really enjoyed our time in Oxford. Thanks
Mrs Rita L, July 2014: Always a pleasure to be at Keble-- Cordell was especially as was the front desk group. Dinner was fine, but very expensive and not too imaginative. Enjoyed the Eton Mess though!!!
Mrs Loretta C, July 2014: Overall I rate the stay at Keble very good. We were so very lucky to have super weather.
The setting was fantastic. Nice extra touches in the room ..water, toiletries and tea/coffee. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast was very good but sadly one of our party ended up having to wait as the supply of cooked breakfast had run out. I would definitely consider using Keble again if I get to return to Oxford.
Mr David H, July 2014: Lived it so much I booked an extra night and have already booked to bring the family soon..!
Mrs Cathy P, July 2014: We throughly enjoyed our stay. We chose a family room which gave us extra room for our luggage. We visited during the unusually warm weather and were very happy to get a fan from the Porter's Lodge. There was some concern about the location of Keble but we found we enjoyed the walk to the center of town. Highly recommend! The chapel is amazing.
Mr Joost G, July 2014: Very pleasant help by the student that showed us the room. The great hall was fabulous.
Dr Linda P, July 2014: Please have a decent room fan available for the very hot summer nights. Thank you
Mrs KAREN S, July 2014: Keble is always a very friendly place to stay and the rooms were excellent for us. One room had a broken blind on velux so the sun poured in early but that's a minor quibble. Lovely stay
Mr Dean C, July 2014: Yet another wonderful stay at Keble College, enjoyed by all my group (the TORC group). Fantastic staff, gorgeous surroundings. See you next year.
Miss Patricia H, July 2014: Thank you for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Mr Joshua R, July 2014: What a beautiful place! We are so grateful to have such a great place to stay in such an amazing city.
Prof Nurith Y, July 2014: I enjoyed my stay. I hope to come back soon.
Ms Carol S, July 2014: I stayed in three colleges and at Keeble I had a ground room- I have arthritis so much appreciated- only disappointment was having to change rooms for each of the three nights-I enjoyed Keeble the most-even had option of lift down from breakfast-and the only college which offered a shower cap!
Mrs Pam S, July 2014: Room overlooking Liddon quad was immaculate, recently decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean. Lovely hot power shower. I'm glad I paid a bit extra to have a room facing quad and away from road as I understand from other friends who were staying that the road was a bit noisy. Very helpful girls to carry bags. Breakfast very good. Keys a little stiff. Overall excellent week-end. Want to come again with husband. Hopefully you have double rooms.
Ms Anne M, July 2014: General room standard and comfort was much higher than expected. Breakfast in the long hall was a great experience.
Mr Jan C, July 2014: Great experience!
Prof Larry Keith W, July 2014: Because Keble was filed on Thursday night, I checked out (storing some luggage at Keble), stayed locally, and returned for this one night. The staff at Keble were extraordinarily helpful. I even enjoyed discovering I could carry a large bag up three flights, as the older, but enjoyable part of the College did not have a lift. I would highly recommend the experience to others! kw
Ms Susan K, July 2014: Thank you
Mr Charles W, July 2014: I stayed in one of the new blocks looking over the quad. Reception were efficient and helpful. The room and en suite bathroom were clean and well fitted. A good range of tea, coffee, bottled water, biscuits and general toiletries were supplied. The dining hall and breakfast were amazing. Overall, a comfortable and good value for money place to stay.
Prof Brian R, July 2014: Our stay at Keble was a very good experience. We hope to do so again next year.
Mr George P, July 2014: Absolutely first class service, room and surroundings. I will definitely be coming back to stay at Keble when I next visit Oxford.
Prof Larry Keith W, July 2014: The Warden's personnel were excellent. I had to check out July 24 (and back in on July 25th because I waited too long to find a room for the full period), and everyone was very helpful. I sincerely appreciated everything about Keble, from its history to its current personnel. Very hot, so A/C would be good, but this just isn't good economics to install it here. kw
Mrs estela T, July 2014: It was a nice surprise for me staying at a room in keeble college. The place is beautiful, the size and confort of room were up to my expectations. Lovely people at the reception desk. I wish I could have stayed longer. Next time I will.
Mrs Patricia P, July 2014: A very enjoyable stay. Everyone very helpful Very central location and I would recommend it to anyone.
Mr Norman I, July 2014: No fuss - good, simple, modernised and clean room. Excellent location.
Mr John S, July 2014: Highly satisfied.
Ms Mairin L, July 2014: I was a little disappointed to discover that my room was not looking over the quad - I'm almost sure that I booked such - however, overall I was very pleased with everything. Thank you.
Ms Marion M, July 2014: I can't remember my room number but I was in the new block. It all worked very well and the girls on reception were very helpful in giving me directions around Oxford and showing me to my room.
The only thing to say is that it was so hot and it would have been wonderful if the window could have opened a bit wider but apart from that it was all excellent.
Mrs Pat H, July 2014: Fantastic experience and 95 0/0 happy. Room was very hot and unable to get fresh air in. Staff friendly and will certainly go again and recommend to friends
Mr Paul W, July 2014: The experience of staying in college in Oxford is exceptional. The rooms we had worked quite well for our group of six: 2 adults and four children/teenagers. Breakfast in the Keble College great hall was not only delicious but an experience. The rates are a bit pricey, however.
Dr Julie L, July 2014: The room was very spacious and well laid-out. Shared bathroom was very clean and quite acceptable, especially as the bedroom includes a private sink. Breakfast was standard sub-par institutional food, but in a beautiful hall that made up for it. Keble staff had an excellent arrangement for storing luggage that was very helpful. Location was fantastic, very close to lots of sights.
Miss Justina A, July 2014: Staying at the College is a great experience overall, so the standard of room, facilities, breakfast etc. become less important.
Mrs Karen M, July 2014: All staff very friendly, room very clean and comfortable. Exquisite surroundings. Jaw wide open. Refreshments and toiletries a lovely bonus. Brilliant breakfast but would appreciate the coffee being available an extra 20 minutes. Thank you all.
Ms Antonia H, July 2014: I was very impressed by my experience. The staff of the porter's office have been consistently helpful and accommodating. The food in the dining hall and the service are excellent. The location is simply beautiful. What a wonderful value for the money. I would definitely return.
Mrs JOANNA H, July 2014: I would certainly use this College again. The quad facing room was totally peaceful.
Mrs Paula L, July 2014: Very clean and comfortable
Dr Ruth D, July 2014: Great place to stay
Mrs Jolijn V, July 2014: It was a very good location, nice college and the rooms gave me a feeling a was a student again.
Mr David B, July 2014: Good value for Central Oxford.Cannot comment on breakfast as had to leave early
Mr Mark G, July 2014: An absolutely fantastic place to stay.
Miss ACQUISTAPACE A, July 2014: Beautiful college and great cleaning team!
Miss Patricia R, July 2014: We had a wonderfull time. The rooms and the facilities were better than expected. The best thing was the breakfast. Totally worthied the money.
Mr Dominic O, July 2014: Excellent all around staff very helpful
Miss Sophie R, July 2014: really brilliant website - super easy to change your booking and lovely staff and food. room was quite warm but great - lovely place to stay
Mr Michael E, July 2014: Phillip at the desk was very friendly and helpful. Very well run for a campus lodging experience.
Mrs Suzanne R, July 2014: Thank you. We would definitely recommend Keble College to our friends!
Mr Todd J, July 2014: The Keble College was a beautiful venue.
Mrs Julie C, July 2014: Certainly the experience was what we were looking for in Oxford, and having breakfast in the dining hall was not only a lot of fun, but we enjoyed great service and food. As you would expect the rooms are very basic, but the beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom were very clean!
Ms Hilary D, July 2014: We didn't have breakfast as we left too early. Good selection of teas etc.good toiletries and powerful shower.
Mrs mine K, July 2014: All is excellent. I felt very warm hospitality. The room was so comfortable, it was like a excellent hotel room. In fact, I was so surprised when I looked at my room.
The atmosphere of the College is so nice. I would like to stay again definitely when I come to Oxford.
Mr Dominic S, July 2014: Lovely location. Price for a twin is ok, but not setting a new benchmark for the standard of the room.
Mrs Kate S, July 2014: Absolutely fantastic experience, great location and would definitely recommend it. Just the thing for a weekend stay and a great way to explore Oxford.
Dr Ulrike T, July 2014: Great place to stay. I will surely come back.
Mrs Jenny B, July 2014: Very good value for money in central Oxford and beautiful surroundings. Will definitely use again!
Mrs Jo B, July 2014: Great place to stay
Mrs April K, July 2014: Very helpful staff at the porter's lounge!
Mrs Ann B, July 2014: We will certainly stay there again. The location is unbeatable. The room was clean and well equipped. The staff were approachable and efficient. We did have a problem with excessive noise on our first night, from 2:30 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. none of us were able to sleep. Perhaps the police should have been called. We were with many family members from around the world for a wedding and all of us enjoyed Our Keble experience. Sincerely, Ann Booth
Dr Catherine M, July 2014: Very lovely College with beautiful grounds. The checking in was easy even although we were late and arrived after 11pm. There is 24 hour porter. The Dining Hall is magnificent and breakfast very good with cold buffet and hot breakfast available.
Miss Leah H, July 2014: Beds are very uncomfortable. I feel sorry for the students! The air quality is terrible too. It's brilliant you have porters 24-7. The grounds are magnificent, and the breakfast was excellent.
Overall, happy with my stay, although you really need to get new beds!
Mr Robert R, July 2014: A wonderful place to stay right in the heart of Oxford. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and the college buildings are spectacular.
Mrs Margaret D, July 2014: Did not have breakfast.Very obliging staff tahnks
Ms Carrie C, July 2014: I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in college this past weekend. The room was pristine, the college & lodge staff incredibly courteous & helpful in all aspects of my stay. I cannot recommend staying in one of these beautiful & historical colleges enough - I will ost definitely be taking advantage of this accommodation more often.
Please do keep up the good work!
Mr neal S, July 2014: Excellent!!! Modern room in the Arco and a fantastic full breakfast in the College Hall. Just beautiful, Thank you.
Mrs Asha S, July 2014: Extremely delighted with every thing.The staff were very good. Breakfast in the dining room was from Harry Potter movie theme we loved every moment. Best place to stay in Oxford will book again.
Mrs Caroline M, July 2014: (A delayed reply as our trip is only just over.) My husband and I found it a wonderful experience to be facing the delightful quad from our rooms at Keble College. We enjoyed going to the Hall for breakfast and wandering around the grounds. Keble College was also a highly convenient base for revisiting Oxford. We arrived late during a cold snap and found no heating in our rooms. We were given an extra duvet each and so survived the night. The next day we were lent heaters which solved the problem. A small suggestion: the night staff could have access to these heaters. Our rooms were well cleaned and we appreciated the generous restocking of the tea bags, hot chocolate and biscuits. Overall, the stay has left us with terrific memories. Thank you.
Prof Michael H, July 2014: I've stayed here a few times--always excellent!
Mrs Debbie S, July 2014: We loved our stay with you. Everyone was very kind and helpful. Our breakfast was a great experience in the Great Hall. The breakfast staff was great at asking if we wanted more coffee etc. Although the rooms were comfortable and clean we thought the price was a bit high for sleeping in dorm rooms. We wanted the experience of staying on campus so paid the price this time.
Mr Mike M, July 2014: loved it!
Mrs CAROLYN D, July 2014: We stayed as a family with the adjoining rooms and bathroom. Fantastic to be able to have the 2 rooms for privacy but to have the children next door. The breakfast was a highlight and the atmosphere of the old college was priceless. Great family holiday within walking distance to some attractions.
Ms Elizabeth S, July 2014: Very nice service, friendly atmosphere. Beautiful setting and convenient location--hope to be back next year!
Ms Laura M, July 2014: I didn't have breakfast so cannot comment.
My only "negative" was that the bed was too soft for me and I woke up with back pain. However, the overall experience was very good.
Miss Gillian S, July 2014: Value for money and a beautiful location
Dr Roger M, July 2014: Keble worked really well to fit me in (and a friend who was also staying) even though they were innundated with other visitors who were at a reunion dinner (as well as, I think, a conference!)
A young member of the Porters' team (called 'Ollie') also very helpfully carried my suitcase up some flights if stairs, without my asking. (I am 70!)
I liked it very much and would certainly stay at Keble again (and use Oxford Rooms for booking) if another occasion arises - as it did this time - when my own colleges (Christ Church & Jesus) can't fit me in.
Mr Colin S, July 2014: I enjoyed my one night stay. Thank you
Mr Paul H, July 2014: Keble College was stunning. We brought my 80 year old Mother to the UK for here first trip to Europe and stayed only one night in Oxford. The college is beautiful and breakfast in the great dining hall was something special. But a visit to the college chapel moved her to tears. Definitely the highlight of the holiday in England so far.
Mrs Jeanette H, July 2014: Great location and excellent value for money.
Miss Clare L, July 2014: We had a lovely stay and would recommend the rooms at Keble to anyone wanting good-value but special accommodation.
Miss Eleanor D, July 2014: Even though we arrived at 1am after a wedding, we had a lovely welcome. Room was large with everything you need. The only problem was the wifi wouldn't work but as we were staying only until early the next morning it didn't matter and we knew had we asked for help we would have received it. There aren't tvs in the rooms, but this didn't bother us. The best thing was the walk to breakfast and enjoying the baitiful college! We already plan to go back for a full weekend!
Mrs Kathryn A, July 2014: The room had a double bed against the wall. Had 2 people stayed, one person would have consistently hit his/ her head on the shelf just above the bed. The shower needed a good bleaching. But it is an old and beautiful building, so not a big deal. Breakfast was great with lots of coffee and options. I looked the huge dining hall. The church is beatuiful and I was lucky enough to be there when organ music was being played.
Mr Nick R, July 2014: Mostly very good. Need WiFi in all rooms. Separating B&B from students means cold fried eggs and cold toast. Need more local info in handout eg nearest ATM
Mrs Peggi P, June 2014: We actually didn't stay as we could only get single rooms and my girls were not comfortable sleeping alone. But we did have dinner and had a fabulous experience. I'm sure if we'd stayed it would have been equally wonderful. My eldest daughter fell in love with Oxford so I'm sure we'll be back.
Ms Lucy N, June 2014: Loved the quad view.
Dr Patricia S, June 2014: I will certainly return sometime if I have another opportunity
Dr Christopher G, June 2014: A beautiful place!
Mrs Sonya C, June 2014: Superb views and helpful staff.
Bathroom - spotless. Room OK , spacious.
Breakfast - good selection but cooked breakfast cold.
Overall a good experience
Mr Alan R, June 2014: For an American without a Rhodes scholarship, this may be the closest we can get to the real thing. It was wonderful to have breakfast at high table every morning, and the legendary porters lived up to their reputation. This is truly a hidden gem.
Ms Lis V, June 2014: Very special and very, very nice. Hope to come back one day??
Ms Erica M, June 2014: I met a porter (?) by the name of Washington and he could not have been nicer. The staff are delightful!
Mr Neil C, June 2014: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff we met were very helpful - in the Porters' Lodge, and at Breakfast in Hall.
We would gladly stay again.
Mrs Sandra J, June 2014: Totally enjoyed room on the quad!
Ms Joan W, June 2014: Outstanding experience! The staff in the Porters Room were very helpful at all times - helping us with our luggage, offering suggestions for eating and sightseeing, helping us get Wireless access, helping us get an early morning taxi, etc. The quad, dining hall, and chapel services were outstanding. We really felt that we were welcome residents at the college for a few days!
Dr Sarah J, June 2014: Staff in the Porter's Lodge were particularly pleasant and friendly.
Ms Teresa S, June 2014: I was fortunate enough to stay in the newly renovated rooms. The room was very nice, breakfast and services excellent. However, the one issue was the level of noise from the street. This was really substantial (and I lived during my time at Keble next to the Keble bar!). I don't know if there is a way to reinforce the windows or add heavier curtains in order to reduce the noise. Otherwise, everything was really very nice and I would recommend the B&B to friends and colleagues. Thank you!
Miss Briony P, June 2014: A lovely quiet stay in beautiful surroundings - much better than a hotel!
Dr Sam N, June 2014: A great stay.
Miss Julia F, May 2014: We've stayed here a couple of times before and really love Keble as a college. We thought the newly refurbished room was great - very nicely done! Our only negative feedback is that the cleaners were pushy and rude - more interested in getting into the room to clean (before check-out time) than in customer service. Other than that, another lovely visit. See you again soon!
Mrs Nicola H, May 2014: Lovely atmosphere. A very special place to stay.
Ms Maggie M, May 2014: The Keble visit surpassed my expectations. The room was certainly "superior" as advertized and I loved the view. The archivist worked hard to answer my queries and the breakfast, seated at high table, was a real treat; as was the choir singing from the chapel rooftop! Thanks so much.
Mr Raymond N, May 2014: Every aspect of our stay at Keble College was extraordinary. Facilities, staff and meals all exceeded every expectation. The location was unbeatable. The peacefulness and charm of the quad area made the stay extra special. Thank you, thank you! We WILL be back!
Dr Thomas H, May 2014: The room was very clean and very basic. The food was like cafeteria food but it was what we expected. The coffee was very good and surprisingly strong.
Mrs Helen G, May 2014: Suited my purposed beautifully. Having the museums right opposite was an added bonus.
Mrs Katja H, May 2014: We had a great stay. Historic part of building, yet newly renovated rooms. Great locations. Kids and I loved it. Nice way to get a "behind the scenes" feeling for the colleges. Just too bad that the great hall was closed due to exam. But that's what you have to live with and I understand. Price compared to hotel was very reasonable too. Would always prefer this!
Mrs Catharina V, May 2014: Wonderful, quiet and yet lively college to stay at.
Our bed had seen better days.
Ms Madeleine B, May 2014: Made to feel welcome and a quiet and lovely place to stay. Also convenient to the centre of Oxford.
Ms Michelle M, May 2014: Fantastic accommodation. It was the total Oxford experience. Perfect location, very central and close to University Park. Service was excellent and I'd definitely recommend it to friends.
Mr William F, May 2014: We had a great stay in Keble College. We loved being in the heart of Oxford. The staff were excellent and we loved being in a historic setting. After this experience, staying in a College will always be my first choice when traveling to Oxford.
Mr David S, May 2014: The porters at Keble were terrific. I had a great stay.
Miss Lindsay B, May 2014: Fantastic setting, excellent room and facilities. Will definitely use again
Mrs Sue W, May 2014: I enjoyed the atmosphere and unique experience of staying at Keble college. Having breakfast in the dining hall was very special. The rooms at the colleges can feel a little monastic but (unlike another college I've stayed at) you provided a hairdryer, a bedside light and nice toiletries which was much appreciated. Some people appreciate being cut off from the outside world but because the wifi didn't work (which to be fair I was advised in advance might be the case) I couldn't use my ipad and so I would have appreciated a clock radio. Next time I'll remember to bring my Kindle :)
Dr Kathryn A S, May 2014: I appreciated the cleanliness and quiet of my room, as well as the ample breakfast. The closeness of Keble College to the Radcliffe Science Library was a boon.
Mrs Jan S, May 2014: My only comment would be that the room was quite noisy due to the traffic noise. Other wise I thought the staff and facilities were excellent.
Mrs Claire S, May 2014: What a find - the whole experience was great. The only thing that was slightly annoying was that, in having booked two nights (initially one for six people and the second for an additional seventh person), this counted as two bookings and when I needed to make amendments, which unfortunately I did, I had to make it to both bookings. It would have been more user friendly if my booking for two nights, albeit with slight differences, could have counted as one booking, so that if, for example, someone cancelled, I would have only needed to do it once. However, that very slight gripe aside, the accommodation was spotless and serviced to a high standard, everyone we came into contact with who worked there (eg the porter, the domestic bursar and other staff) could not have been more friendly and helpful, the view over the quad was beautiful (well worth the additional £5), the breakfast was good (I think my companions who had the cooked breakfast would have rated it "excellent" but the continental choice was slightly less impressive), it was surprisingly quiet at night and I would highly recommend this as somewhere to stay in Oxford for couples or mature adult groups.
Mr Jim F, May 2014: Great location and very convenient for the Oxford Natural History Museum just across the road. Some Fair trade coffee sachets would be preferred in the room.
Mr Barry M, May 2014: Great place. Excellent service
Mrs Theresa M, May 2014: Added a special touch to a weekend away
Dr Mayur B, May 2014: To stay in an Oxford College, see the quadrangles, and be given access where usually only insiders go, such as the Hall for breakfast, is what this is all about. Yes it is pricey at £105 per night but Keble is unique, not just here but on the planet. Need I say more?
Mr Lindsay G, May 2014: The room was clean and seemed spacious. The pressure of water in the shower was good although the temperature did seem a bit variable.
Pehaps an additional easy chair might have been nice, but it may have made the room seem cluttered.
Mr Kerstin T, May 2014: Enjoyed my pristine room once I got the heater going - it was quite a chilly spring day! I was attracted to the beautiful architecture of Keble college as featured in an episode of "Lewis" and was not disappointed. It was also much closer to the city centre than I had thought, just down the lane past the Lamb and Flag and one is virtually there!
Mr Brad M, May 2014: We had a very nice stay and will recommend Keble College to friends.
Miss Allison B, May 2014: I had a lovely experience saying at Keble College. If I visit Oxford in the future, I would plan to enjoy my stay at Keble College again. Thank you for wonderful service.
Miss CHUI M, May 2014: Overall experience is good
Mr Kenichi O, May 2014: Thank you for precious experience to stay at colledge in Oxford.
Ms Marie-Claude P, May 2014: Very nice modern room. Will stay there again in the future and recommend a quad facing room.
Mr Stefano C, May 2014: You stay in a wonderful Oxford College! Is that not enough?
Mrs Christine C, May 2014: We were greeted by some lovely friendly porters, who gave us all the information we needed. Our room was fresh bright and the bed very comfortable. There was a good range of food at Breakfast in the Hall to suit all our needs. Would recommend to friends and family and will hopefully return there myself
Mrs Paula H, May 2014: Really enjoyable and unique experience, amazing view across the Quad. The keys were a bit of a faff though!
Mrs Linda R, May 2014: Experience of staying in one of Oxford's universities, including breakfast at the high table - amazing!
Mrs Alison L, May 2014: A fabulous, unique experience.
Mrs Dagmar S, May 2014: It was an everlasting experience for me and my daughter! We enjoyed the room and view to the quadrangle, the breakfast at the High Table with a lot of other guests from abroad and will recommend this opportunity to everyone travelling to Oxford!
Mr PHILIPPE L, May 2014: Very good stay in Keble college
Mrs Marian S, May 2014: A lovely experience - would recommend.
Mr David Y, April 2014: Our refurbished quad-facing room was comfortable, spacious and quiet; only niggles were the lack of a second bedside table and lamp, and the difficulty in setting a consistent shower temperature. All staff excellent. Would definitely stay again.
Miss Jessica E, April 2014: Great stay, we all loved it and had a wonderful experience. The renovated rooms are lovely.
Dr Albertina A, April 2014: Excellent in every way.
Mr Iain J, April 2014: Super, clean, comfortable room. Friendly and very helpful staff. Beautiful surroundings. All in all an excellent visit.
Mr Peter M, April 2014: Great service, clean comfortable and well maintained room. Will use again and recommend.
Ms Tricia G, April 2014: The room was spacious, warm and spotlessly clean. The college has a welcoming atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. Its an easy walk into the town and the college is opposite green spaces. I enjoyed my stay!
Mrs Fiona G, April 2014: All the staff were incredibly courteous and helpful. The dining hall was magical and we really enjoyed the dinner on Tuesday 15th.
Mr Anthony T, April 2014: Thank you for sharing the extraordinary environment of Keble College for my recent two night stay. I was very pleased with the comforts of the refurbished room overlooking the old quad and for the wonderful breakfasts each morning and the friendly wait staff.
I look forward to returning. Best wishes
Mr Olaf K, April 2014: Nice experience to overhear a CD recording in the neighboring chapel of the college during my stay!
Mr J Miles W G, April 2014: By ticking "excellent " for all aspects, you may think I am either too generous or simply facetious: but I am neither. The whole experience was simply excellent.
Mr Paul B, April 2014: Very pleasant stay and breakfast in the hall was fantastic. Only "complaint" - could do with a bedside table on both side of the double bed.
Mrs Liza M, April 2014: Keble College is a fabulous place to stay, the accommodation was immaculate, the towels white and the toiletries a bonus. The chapel is one of the most peaceful places I have ever experienced and the mosaics on the walls were beautiful. Only a ten minute walk into the city centre. This was my first stay at a university and it will not be my last.
Mrs Lisbeth B, April 2014: Very good experience, and would love to stay longer and more often. However, too expensive.
Dr Michael S, April 2014: Dinner in the Great Hall was like a Hogwarts experience for my 9 yr old
Lovely peaceful base from which to explore the city
Mr John G, April 2014: I'd be very happy to stay there again. I wish it could be more often! The staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. The College is a great place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone, and will. Thank you to all the staff. JG
Ms Jing F, April 2014: Very lovely buildings, room is very large, super clean, bed springs are old but not too bad to sleep in.
Great dining hall. Will try again for sure
Ms Anna A, April 2014: Newly renovated room + bathroom facilities w/ a superb view. More than I expected!
Miss Christine O, April 2014: What a truly wonderful place to stay. The buildings are magnificent and sitting at our window looking out at the courtyard was a real treat. Having no TV made it a real getaway. Breakfast in the hall was something else! The staff were so helpful, friendly and welcoming. We would not stay anywhere else in Oxford. ??
Mrs Geraldine B, April 2014: Very impressed with room, facilities, pleasant cleaning staff in mornings.
Spent in in the chapel and much admired 'The Light of the World' painting.
Mr D Scott B, April 2014: We had a wonderful stay in beautiful Keble college, and hope to return again.
Mr John L, April 2014: Very pleasant stay
Dr Elizabeth A, April 2014: Keeble College is an excellent place to stay. Warm and comfortable and our room had a wonderful view of the quad. The breakfast was super and made for a perfect stay in Oxford
Dr Andrew L, April 2014: Rooms basic but clean. No bath, which was a shame. Breakfast excellent. Staff very good.
Ms Rachel C, April 2014: I will definitely stay on campus for any future business in Oxford! Thanks!!
Ms Helena F, April 2014: I would highly recommend this accomodation. Extremely clean room with all conveniences. Wonderful view of quad. Did not care for cooked food available in hall for breakfast. But that is minor. Kettle with teas, coffees, biscuits in room very welcome.
Miss Karen E, April 2014: The porters gave an excellent welcome to the college and were really friendly and helpful. Made a pleasant change from staying in hotels and I'd recommend it for a short stay to anyone.
Dr Nick F, April 2014: It was a pleasant stay in a convenient location.

Miss Erin M, April 2014: Excellent night's stay with good information given at check in and plenty of extra touches in the room - plenty of towels, good tea and coffee facilities etc. (Significantly better than those at a more expensive hotel I stayed in just outside Oxford on the following night).
Mrs Irena K, April 2014: We enjoyed our stay at Keble College very much. The website gave as good information about what we could expect. The staff was very helpful, breakfast in the Grand Hall amazing experience.
The only small deficiency was a missing mirror in our bathroom (uncomfortable for two women).

Mr Jorma R, April 2014: Room is of course a spartan student room and this particular one up four levels of stairs. Common toilet with adjacent room, have to go to staircase to reach it. Comfortable bed. Very pleasant setting in an old college (1870) and awesome Harry Potter type hall for breakfast.
Mr Richard W, April 2014: This is student accommodation and has been judged as such. Clearly the standard of the room and facilities does not compare with a good hotel, but it was clean and comfortable. The only thing missing was a TV!

Ms Claudia S, March 2014: We stayed the year before and we were so happy we came back. Excellent value for money.
Mrs Jane C, March 2014: The overall experience was very good given due to the setting and relative tranquility of the college. Plumbing was a bit hit and miss in two of the three rooms we used but that is perhaps to be expected in the type of accommodation on offer. Would certainly consider using this type of accommodation again.
Mrs yassamine M, March 2014: Very good
Mrs Sandra K, March 2014: Excellent stay, only one observation as women we need a mirror near a 3 pin socket (to dry hair). I did chat to someone there and this was due to some rooms still to be updated.
A perfect setting to stay in Oxford.
Dr William Q, March 2014: What a wonderful experience. Keble College is awe-inspiring. The room was of good quality. The location was impossible to beat. Breakfast in the dining hall was outstanding. We couldn't have asked for more.
Ms Tu N, March 2014: We didn't stay at the Keble College, only dined there for dinner but would highly recommend! Lovely experience, great value and food. Looking forward to the next opportunity to dine there for dinner but am keen to stay there the night and have breakfast.

Mrs kay A, March 2014: i've completed the feedback form in my room. Very pleasant stay with helpful young people. Coffee at breakfast was hideous but otherwise nothing to complain about. It was quiet, convenient and clean.

Ms Valerie B, March 2014: I stayed a night before and returned because I enjoyed the experience so much. Having breakfast at the high table in the dining hall was like taking a repast in a cathedral!
Miss Dorothy L, March 2014: The college dining hall made a lovely setting for breakfast and the room was spotless, comfortable and well equipped.
Mrs Adele W, January 2014: I enjoyed eating in the dining hall and the food was good. Rooms were a bit chilly at night.
Mrs Marian F, November 2013: We'd stay there again!
Mrs Sylvia H, October 2013: The rooms are basic but as expected, the college buildings are spectacular, the position in the city could not be better. We were more than pleased with our stay at Keble College. The park and ride service in the city is also excellent.
Mrs alida G, October 2013: I had a very comfortable and snug room in the attic with great view over pusey quadand clock tower. The room was very clean and the sheets very nice and soft. Bathroom with shower and loo were very clean. It was a real experience. The people at reception very helpful and professional. Also breakfast in the magnificent hall was really good. Staff very good at breakfast. To top it all the chapel was open in the morning and I was there to watch the Light of the World in total silence, What a beautiful chapel.
I could have stayed much longer , also very central to all in Oxford!
Thank you! Pity but understandably the fire place was blocked off.
I really enjoyed my stay! Will definitely stay again.
Alida Gell, Staffordshire
Ms Felicity S, October 2013: Stayed with my 80 year old father who is an Oxford graduate. Keble College was an excellent place to stay and very sensitive to our needs. I would highly recommend it.

Ms Janet M, October 2013: We had a very good overnight stay at Keble College. The room was fine and facilities in it were good. Breakfast was an excellent experience, in the wonderful gothic Hall, where the wide choice of food and prompt service by all staff made the experience outstanding.
Mrs Lesley B, October 2013: Very pleasantly surprised with the facilities. Would definitely stay in a college again.
Dr Cynthia S, October 2013: It was a great experience. The Keble College is really a nice place. I hope that I will opportunity to stay over there when I will come back in Oxford.
Mr Paul K, September 2013: Very smooth - well received, help with bags to climb 2 flights of stairs. Rooms comfortable, quiet and warm. Good shower room, plenty of storage. The whole stay was excellent, Keble is very accessible to Oxford centre. Even parking is OK (not cheap, but this is the city's policy). Would recommend without hesitation.
Mrs Vanessa W, September 2013: Keble College was an amazing place to stay. the accommodation is not luxurious, but adequate. There were nice touches with the coffee tray and shower gel etc. The highlight had to be breakfast in the dining hall!
Ms Amanda S, September 2013: We liked being provided with hot chocolate and tea bags. The serve ing of the rooms was good. The breakfast experience was memorable with a good range of food. The location was good.
Prof Mike F, September 2013: We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting the Bod or attending conferences: it's thoroughly enjoyable to experience Oxford colleges from the inside.
Dr Nathalie B, September 2013: Very nice college accommodation, well located, friendly staff.
Mrs Patricia F, September 2013: My sister and I enjoyed our stay at Keble College, Staff was helpful and informative. Perfect place to stay in Oxford, close to all sites.

Mr Ian G, September 2013: Hospitality and service were excellent and outstanding value for money. Booking was easy on your website

The staff at the College were were very friendly & polite.
Ms Alison M, September 2013: Very much enjoyed (would be great value for single people and even though I booked three rooms for the three of us still only the cost of a mid-grade hotel room). Staff very helpful.
One comment - easier wifi access would have been good and is increasingly commonplace in accommodation across the world.
Mr Brett G, September 2013: We found the "College experience" a wonderful addition to our self-drive holiday through the UK.
We will be very happy to recommend Keble College to our traveling friends.
Mr Gabriella F, September 2013: It was not my first Oxford visit, but staying at Keble College added a pleasant extra dimension to this visit. The ambience was absolutely pleasant. I enjoyed the good service and food at breakfast and, of course, the amazing dining hall. I was also glad to overlook the quad from my 4th floor room but the stairs were a bit problematic.
Mrs Rachel F, September 2013: Reception - very good check in and helpful.
Great location and rooms very comfortable, would definitely stay again.
Prof Stephanie H, September 2013: Room was comfortable and clean; staff were courteous, friendly and efficient. It was a little noisy from traffic in the morning as it overlooked Parks Road but otherwise good experience and I'd do it again

Mrs Kathy B, September 2013: Awesome, awesome, awesome!
Mrs jill G, September 2013: Good standard, well equipped comfortable.
Dr Birgit T, September 2013: In general I enjoyed my stay at the college.
Two ideas for improvement:
The mattress in room 300 is due to be exchanged.
WiFi in the rooms would be great
Ms Shun Lai Y, September 2013: The room is clean and nice. Towel and bedding are in good shape. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are unexpectedly good. I enjoy my time at the college.
Mr Jonathan S, September 2013: A very comfortable night in a spectacular setting, followed by a wonderful breakfast. Amazing value for money, would recommend to anyone.

Ms Veronica C, September 2013: Far exceeded expectations; brilliant stay enhanced by very positive staff and of course fantastic city venue.
Dr Elizabeth W, September 2013: Lovely experience. Rooms were clean. Grounds were beautiful. Food was good. Staff were wonderful, helpful, generous with their local knowledge. I would not only recommend this college to anyone I know, I will be back--I hope next summer.
Dr Susan V, September 2013: Staff were helpful, efficient and speedy at all times. Excellent value for money and I would definitely stay again. I actually stayed 3 nights, not just the one.

Dr Emma D, September 2013: Everything great, thanks!
Ms Lucy E, September 2013: An enjoyable stay in a beautiful college with very helpful staff.
Mr Markus M, September 2013: Dear Sir,
we had a very pleasant stay in Keble College. The buildings and the atmosphere were very nice. Although the rooms were not in the old buildings, they had everything we needed. Rooms were clean (including bathroom), beds were comfortable and the staff at the reception was at any time very kind.
As I choose Keble College for the whole family wihtout asking them, I am pleased to say, that the whole family enjoyed it very much.
What I most liked, was having breakfeast in the dining hall. This was an experience, that I would not want to miss. The breakfeast was good (except from the coffee, which needs less water and mor coffee ;-) ) .
So no question, coming to Oxford again means staying at Keble College.
Thank you very much.
Miss Linda B, September 2013: Excellent location for Oxford. Lovely grounds with benches to relax and a large friendly bar. Clean room with a fridge, hot water, plenty of tea coffee hot chocolate and a bottle of water and biscuits much appreciated. Friendly staff and a great breakfast with plenty of choice in the beautiful great hall.
Mr John T, September 2013: Very pleasant stay. Great environment & location. Handy to central town and all points of interest. Breakfast in the dining room - excellent.
Ms Frances S, September 2013: Keble College was a great place to stay in. The room was very well looked after by the cleaning staff and it was a comfortable experience.
Mr CHEUK KAM L, September 2013: Excellent breakfast and in-room tea making facilities. Clean but plain room.
Mrs Lorraine P, September 2013: Convenient location, high standard of breakfast
Inconvenient WI-Fi connection
Mr Gary R, September 2013: A very pleasant stay (again). Unfortunately the annual fair was in town so was very noisy till after 11. Excellent breakfast. Will use again.

Prof Daniel S, September 2013: It was wonderful to stay at the college and the people were kind, helpful, and very polite. Thank you!
Mrs Margaret D, September 2013: The room was clean but very basic, no TV or comforts only the usual tea tray. However, the college grounds, general welcome and breakfast experience (in the fantastic dining hall) was some compensation. For the price I would have expected free wifi though rather than hire of an 'ethernet cable'.
I will visit again as the overall experience was good.
Dr Silvia C F, September 2013: beautiful grounds and stunning dining hall. free wifi works well. most friendly staff!
Dr Conor N, September 2013: Keble is a beautiful college to stay at. As in all colleges, some of the rooms are idiosyncratic if you are used to modern hotels. The furniture may be eclectic, and the plumbing noisy and creaky. If you want something unusual in a beautiful central location at a bargain price then try it. Otherwise, this is not for you - stay at a Holiday Inn.
Mr George W, September 2013: My wife, son and I had a lovely time in Oxford which was largely due to our stay at Keble College.
The breakfast was delicious and the surroundings were beautiful.
The room was very clean.
The staff were very helpful and very polite.
We will certainly be visiting again when possible and will recommend you to others.
Thank you for a wonderful stay and experience.
Mrs Sally K, September 2013: Wonderful location, excellent facilities and we were very well looked after.
Prof Gianluca T, September 2013: nice play to stay!
Mrs Corinne K, September 2013: congratulations for your services. I will recommand your college without any doubts.
Mrs Margaret H, September 2013: A very enjoyable experience looking forward to future visits.
Ms Anne S, September 2013: Very much enjoyed my stay. Friendly staff and service. Convenient location. Would like to visit and stay again.
Mr Mark W, September 2013: We inadvertently arrived on the wrong day to check in but your very helpful Reception staff were brilliant. We had to pay an upgrade for a quad facing room but this was well worth it, and the keys were ready immediately. The room was of a good standard and obviously aged but this all added to the atmosphere of staying in such a beautiful college building. The cleanliness was perfect and the quality of linen and towels was brilliant. The toiletries provided were an unexpected surprise, as was the plentiful hospitality tray. Breakfast in the Dining Hall was something I will never forget - the sheer grandness of the Hall was breathtaking and I was left in awe. I felt as though I were auditioning for a forthcoming Harry Potter film! All in all I would thoroughly recommend Keble College and hope to return to it, and the beautiful city of Oxford, in the future. Many thanks to all.
Mr Manolis T, September 2013: Thank you so much. Hope seeing you some day.
I would recommend Keeble. Kind Regards
Mrs Betsy E, September 2013: I've posted a completed questionnaire but just want to reiterate what I've said there. The standard of the room was really good for the price and it is such a fabulous place to stay. ButI do think a little bedside light, as well as the anglepoise, would make a huge difference to the feel of the room as a cosy place to stay, not a study. Also, could there not be a little brochure about the history of the college and chapel, and about services. I think people can find college chapels daunting and it would be nice to be told that it was available, and open for quiet reflection even if no services in term time. Some details about church or college chapels or places of worship generally in the city would be good, too. There must be more per square metre in Oxford than just about anywhere on earth. Thanks for a superb stay. It is a truly special place.
Mr Andrew H, September 2013: Stunning college to stay in. The architecture and the great hall leaves you speechless. Superb central location. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Could have done with some earplugs as got woken up constantly by revelers and road noise as the room was that side of the building. Room was clean, tidy and functional. Could have done with a small free standing mirror for the desk top for the purposes of applying make up, hair styling etc as there is only one plug socket and it is situated below the desk. The existing fixed mirrors are located in the bathroom and the small room outside the bathroom. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Mr Ben H, September 2013: I was booking for a group of 9. I think we all enjoyed our stay. Booking was simple. Checking in at the Lodge was quick. The rooms were good (probably better than my undergrad rooms at an Oxford college I won't name). I didn't actually make breakfast so can't comment on that (there isn't an 'n/a' option). The price was good for a central room in Oxford. I'd stay again.
Ms Cathryn L, September 2013: I enjoyed my stay at Keble College, would stay there again if in Oxforda and will recommend it to others. The interior of the college is mostly 19th century buildings which are lovely: the chapel and the dining hall are not to be missed. I like that it is a couple of blocks north of Broad Street and hence not in the midst of the old colleges as it in a more tree-filled and green area. It is still only 2 blocks from the Bodleian, Blackwells and The Kings Arms and is across the street from Natural History and the Pitt. The porters were extremely helpful and the one minor maintenance request I had was handled immediately though it was outside of the normals hours for handling such things. The included English breakfast is hardy and tasty but the same small selection of items repeated daily as is typical English breakfast.
Ms Mary R, September 2013: A very good place to stay and very good value. Staff were all very helpful and indeed charming. Will stay again.
Mrs Martha G, September 2013: Wonderful experience overall
Mrs rebecca L, September 2013: loved the experience of staying in an oxford college. have already rebooked for early next year.
Dr Sacha W, September 2013: Very kind receptionist, great that they had electricity converters.
Dr Paul Y, August 2013: Overall, a great experience. Cannot fault it! Well worth booking the better rooms overlooking the quad.
Mrs Teresa P, August 2013: It is always a pleasure to stay at one of the colleges in Oxford. I would heartily recommend to all. Until our next visit. Thank you.
Mr Jean-Michel K, August 2013: Great place, great value!
Ms Johanna W, August 2013: Amazing experience to stay in the dorms; our family quad was really well appointed and perfect for a family of 4. The breakfasts were tasty and served in an amazing dining hall. Everyone loved it.
Mrs Deborah G, August 2013: It was our first trip to Oxford and from start to finish it was excellent, the accommodation, facilities and bed and breakfast.
Ms Wendy S, August 2013: We had lovely views and everything was great. The staff were very helpful with any questions, which is much appreciated. The breakfast was an experience, but the hot food of canteen standard - understandable with large groups of people.
Mr James M, August 2013: The room was clean and regularly serviced with fresh linen and tea/coffee etc. It was clearly student accommodation rather than an hotel room, but that's part of the fun. Dining in the great hall was an absolute treat, and the chapel was worth a visit too. Staying at Keble College added a very welcome extra dimension to our Oxford visit.
Miss Joanna F, August 2013: In the course of my visit to Oxford I stayed in three colleges- all three were comfortable and friendly places to stay, but Keble was outstanding. Some of the extra touches that I found particularly good were the maps and information about Keble, Oxford and available facilities at the college in a folder in the room; having someone personally show me to my room; and the excellent service and food at breakfast. I would definitely stay here again!
Mrs Lucy H, August 2013: Absolutely fantastic stay - good bed, lovely sheets, top breakfast - makes me want to go back to college!
Mrs Helen G, August 2013: Wonderful suroundings to spend family wedding weekend.
Miss Christine W, August 2013: Very enjoyable stay - central location, beautiful college, great service, 1st class experience.
Only concern was that the towels and linen were changed every day - very pleasant but from a environmental point of view not necessary.
Mr Francis L, August 2013: Had a great time here, the view from my room was superb. Breakfast was great. Thanks alot
Mrs Cheryl M, August 2013: Bright room. Lovely setting. Clean. Excellent breakfast in impressive dining room,
Mrs Gillian M, August 2013: Beautiful building. Staff very friendly and helpful. Evening meal in hall was a very good experience. Would recommend it all.
Ms Shelley T, August 2013: Lovely college. Thanks very much.
Mr Paul B, August 2013: We had a very enjoyable stay and would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.
Mrs Caroline H, August 2013: We all enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect for access to the city centre, colleges and restaurants in Clarendon Street. We loved the views from our rooms over the quad and the grounds would have been lovely had we been more fortunate with the weather during our stay. The staff couldn't have been kinder or more helpful.
Miss Joanna W, August 2013: A lovely experience for anyone approaching University life, or (like me!) revisiting after many years.
Mr Jonathan C, August 2013: Enjoyable stay - great location, friendly staff, fabulous surroundings, breakfast was really good in the long hall. I shall return!
Mrs Julia B, August 2013: enjoyed the stay - the room was very good - everyone was very friendly - the college is well positioned for the town and for pubs and eating places. Overall a good experience
Miss Emma F, August 2013: I was in Oxford for an interview the next day, and as my sister college didn't have any suitable guest rooms free, booked into Keble as it was near my interview. And I'm so glad I did - because the service was absolutely spot on, just the right mix of the Oxbridge college experience, and a really good quality B&B. The porters and all the staff I met were absolutely fabulous, and how they deliver so much for the price charged I don't know. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, and recommend Keble to my friends, too. I'm very proud of my two Cambridge colleges (I studied at King's and currently work for Hughes Hall), but Keble's outdone them both!
Mr Martin B, August 2013: enjoyed my visit greatly
Mrs Linda P, August 2013: Lovely surroundings,although we requested 2 quad facing rooms and only one was facing the quad.Service and cleanliness was excellent.We enjoyed our stay.Thank you.
Mr Mark D, August 2013: The people at the University were extremely helpful and the room was very good with beds that gave a great nights sleep.
Mr Peter B, August 2013: Thankyou to all concerned. The staff in the dining hall and front office were friendly and most helpful. Maggie and Peter Brown
Mrs linda T, August 2013: My friend and I really enjoyed staying in Keble and are already planning a visit to Oxford next year. I was very happy with my room and was very comfortable. The breakfasts were great and we enjoyed dining on our last evening. Please will you put a mirror near a power point in the main room. (I had to hair dry by feel!! - It's a woman thing!!!) Linda Taylor
Miss Yandie D, August 2013: Having breakfast at college hall was the most amazing part during the stay. The experience was great. The college service was very helpful. We arrived at the porters lodge to check in, then a student showed us around. The room is clean. Overall, it was great. I studied my undergraduate at Cambridge. The stay reminded me of my uni life. Strongly recommended it to anyone who is curious of what an oxbridge student life is like.
Ms Julia T, August 2013: I absolutely loved staying at Keble, it was just what an Oxford experience should be. Many thanks for the excellent service - sometimes "excellent" means being there if needed, being able to help, but not interfering otherwise, and you scored full marks on all these.
Dr Anna R, August 2013: I was very impressed, with the stylish, modern room and with the friendly, helpful staff, both at Reception and when one left luggage (students).
Ms Xiaoying L, August 2013: Highly recommend. Great experience for me and my boy. Checked out at 10 am, just the time when the natural history museum across the street opens.
Mrs jill E, August 2013: Beautiful venue. Great position. Rooms were clean and tidy. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Would highly recommend.
Mr Fergus T, August 2013: Enjoyed my brief stay. Staff were very pleasant
Mr Andrew T, August 2013: Keble college was a beautiful place to spend the night; conveniently located, and with an excellent room and breakfast provided. Next time I need to spend a night in Oxford I would not hesitate to stay at Keble, and would recommend it to everyone.
Miss Clare M, August 2013: This is the third year we have stayed at Keble we really do love it, only thing we would love is a small fridge in the old rooms, just to keep bottles of water and Juice cold, really hate having to drink warm water especially when it is so warm !!!
Ms Florence I, August 2013: Accommodation was very good, however could be improved with better options for breakfast for those with special dietary requirements (especially gluten-free).
Mrs Susan S, August 2013: Really wonderful experience that I am telling all my friends about - something different for a stay in Oxford. My daughter in H3006 found the bar a bit noisy but that is to be expected as we were staying in student rooms. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the dinner on sunday evening just topped off our weekend. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome in such a beautiful environment.
Dr Anna N, August 2013: I was very pleased with my brief stay at Keble. It was very helpful to be able to check in early to my room when I arrived earlier than expected. Some additional highlights of my time at Keble were the cleanliness of the room and bath, as well as the robust (and easy to use) wifi system. I've also stayed at another Oxford college where the wireless was a hassle and the facilities were not clean at all. I'll definitely choose Keble the next time I'm visiting Oxford!
Dr Maria M, August 2013: amazing!!! incredibly friendly breakfast staff!
Dr Brian C, August 2013: Keble College, Oxford, provided a good room, excellent food and very helpful staff. Would have no hesitation in recommending to friends. Marvellous weekend. Well done Keble!
Ms Angela A, August 2013: My daughter and I stayed here for a night while exploring Oxford and the campus is beautiful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The real treat was the breakfast dining hall experience, the room is beautiful and the food was delicious. We would stay here again if we have the opportunity to visit Oxford.
Ms Laura L, August 2013: Lovely place to stay, excellent service and a great experience.
Ms Sandra K, August 2013: Our stay at Keble was very pleasant and enjoyable! We stayed in a double room in the Victorian part of the building and loved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we felt very well taken care off. We'd highly recommend Keble College to our friends and family an would always stay there again!
Mrs Diana S, August 2013: Impressed! My room was able to be changed so that I could be with friends. Clean room, comfortable bed and superb pillow and breakfast couldn't be faulted. Would recommend to anyone.
Miss JENNIFER D, August 2013: Excellent place to stay. Would definitely recommend it
Mrs Gillian H, August 2013: brilliant place to stay, great value. thanks!
Miss Isotta R, August 2013: Keble College had a wonderful position, quite close to city centre. It was an incredible experience to live in a proper college. Breakfast was very good and staff very kind.
Hope to be back soon!
Mr John B, August 2013: This was a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Friendly staff, clear instructions, clean and comfortable room (if a little dark). Teh surroundings are great. Definitely better than an ordinary B&B!
Mr Rob D, August 2013: It was a very different experience there. People are nice. They helped you to store luggage for free. The breakfast was excellent.
Miss Charlotte R, July 2013: I booked to stay in Keble college as a birthday treat for my mum and we weren't disappointed. It was such a fantastic experience and the quality of service was better than at lots of top brand hotels i've stayed in. Overall the experience of staying in the college was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone, especially as you can't access the majority of colleges unless you're a guest.
Thank you for making a special weekend really special indeed!
Miss Jacqueline S, July 2013: loved the whole experience,great rooms and location .and breakfast in the hall is hard to beat.
Mrs Noll R, July 2013: Thank you, Keble, always an excellent experience with you. We stayed July 18 and 19, and again July 27 (can't remember room numbers but both were in the old building), slept very well, enjoyed our breakfast, and very much appreciated your luggage storage facility. We'll be back next summer -
Miss BIN Q, July 2013: The stay there was soooo good and we really enjoy the environment of Keble College! And I have to say the staff there were all very kind, thanks a lot :)
Miss Emma V, July 2013: We had a fantastic stay in Keble College. It was the perfect alternative for an expensive hotel, and I dare to say also a lot more fun than a hotel.
Mrs Julie T, July 2013: Staff at Keble were helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for them. A pleasure to stay there.
Ms Xiang Z, July 2013: We had a very pleasant stay at Keble College. The room was clean and professionally prepared, breakfast was served in Keble's beautiful dining hall, and the staff at the porter's lodge were very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Satomi N, July 2013: We enjoyed the stay very much. Excellent value for money. Breakfast was exceptional. We would definitely stay again.
Miss Veronica H, July 2013: My friends and I were so pleased with the facilities and the service at Keble. Having such a wonderful breakfast in the glorious dining room was beyond words. We were definitely very happy with everything.
Mr Gary R, July 2013: A great place to stay for the same as staying in a T'lodge. Room and shower very clean. Quiet as out of just out of centre of Oxford. Breakfast excellent - very attentive staff, good choice of food, fantastic College Hall. Will use again.
Mr Gareth O, July 2013: Very pleasant, clean and tidy. I've stayed in a number of Oxford colleges this year (including my own college) and this was my best experience yet.
Dr Sally L, July 2013: I loved my stay. I will recommend to all my friends. A great Oxford experience. Sitting at high table for breakfast was a highlight. The breakfast food is extensive. Thanks to the porters and staff. Great. And what good weather you provided.
Ms Geraldine H, July 2013: Cannot be faulted. Wonderful location too and a haven from the crowds.
The one small thing was a radiator (room 2503 if I remember) was warm and could not adjust it
Ms Caroline J, July 2013: Brilliant experience. We were totally blown away by how beautiful it was, and even though we were staying in the new buildings, we still got chance to look around the rest of the college and eat in the amazing dining hall. I whole heartedly recommend staying here & would stay here again.
Mr Phil L, July 2013: I visited with two Tanzanian teachers from our partner school wanting them to get a good experience of one of the best universities in the world ... they were blown away with the experience. Thank you
Mr Jeff F, July 2013: The staff in the Porter's Office, and the staff in the hall during breakfast, were exceptional. They deserve high praise and recognition.
Mr Isidro M, July 2013: Fantastic experience! Just like moving back in time. Nicest service during breakfast. Ana, Madrid. Spain.
Mrs Valerie W, July 2013: Excellent service from everyone. Rooms clean, staff friendly and efficient, and breakfast brilliant. We were all very impressed and would definitely stay here again.
Mrs Marin K, July 2013: A perfect place to stay while visiting Oxford. Central location, great breakfast in an amazing dining hall, courteous and helpful porters, clean and comfortable rooms. What more could we ask for?
Dr Veronica L, July 2013: beautiful setting for anyone who wants to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and architecture in keble college. All staff were very pleasant and helpful. Good value for money
Miss Dominika M, July 2013: It was wonderful! Superb location, wonderful and friendly staff and excellent food. I will definitely be back and encourage my friends and family to stay. Thank you for a brilliant experience.
Dr Gibson D, July 2013: An excellent place to stay in a prime location. The tea/ coffee making facilities and the complimentary facilities were a real bonus. Breakfast in the hall was a treat. My wife was very pleased that we saw the 'Light of the World' painting in the Chapel. We will certainly be staying here again.
Ms carolyn C, June 2013: A wonderful stay and excellent accommodation. We will recommend this to our Canadian friends who may be visiting Oxford.
Ms Elizabeth Ann B, June 2013: Excellent location & experience. Central without being too close to the busiest areas. Porters friendly & helpful. Stayed in 3 different Oxford colleges and this was by far the best and the most restful.
Mrs E D, June 2013: Wow! We loved staying at Keble College. We have never stayed at an Oxford college before, now we will want to stay nowhere else. We loved the easy sign in, loved the Porters!!!! the Ethernet worked great, the gorgeous views over the main quad, the quiet, the birdsong, walking everywhere, eating in the dining hall was fantastic I gave a slightly lower score because we love strong coffee and the coffee was quite weak. Can't wait to book again.
Ms Karenne M, June 2013: I was unsure about staying in university college but standard of service was excellent. Everyone very helpful, shown to room, helpful service at breakfast, iron and mirror provided, luggage stored, able to change clothes when collecting luggage. All staff smiling, I would recommend Keble College to my friends and will stay again when visiting Oxford. Thank you.
Mr Carl H, June 2013: Very peaceful and relaxing. Ensuite room excellant. Keble College has beautiful buildings. Staff very helpful and cheerful. You won't be disapointed.
Mr Raj K, April 2013: Fantastic experience
Miss Kassie P, April 2013: I really enjoyed my stay, it was a unique and amazing opportunity and experience.
Dr Ahmed M, April 2013: It is really a good facility, well finished and comfortable. The only notice is that the water system in the bathroom is still the old one that is not suitable to modern life at the moment.
Room service is clean and good.
Food is excellent.
Transportation to this place is a must so that I can see the price is a bit high compared to other student and post graduate available facilities within Oxford.
The other issue is that it is not valid for families which is normal in every educational property.
I can recommend it to singles who will have a conference within the facility.
Mrs Elizabeth W, April 2013: I really enjoyed staying at Keble with a group of friends. Staff were all extremely helpful. Eating in the dining hall was a unique experience and it was excellent value for money.
Miss Alicia M, April 2013: The reception staff are really helpful and nice. The place is fantastic and my room was perfect too, except for some noisy pipes in the bathroom (my room was ensuite), which sometimes sounded after having a shower.
Mrs Alexandra S, April 2013: Welcoming and friendly staff, excellent service and a good and central location in a beautiful setting
Mr Domenico R, April 2013: Without being outstanding, the accomodation is pleasantly quiet and confortable. I think I'll chose to stay in the same college (same type of room) when I'll have to go to Oxford again.
Miss Jessica H, April 2013: Was a totally lovely experience - the room was lovely and the college location perfect. It would have been helpful to have internet/wifi access in the room, and also a slightly later checkout time, but otherwise the entire stay was lovely.
Mr Michael G, April 2013: Fantastic Location and service
Mr Kevin G, April 2013: Most enjoyable - esp. being in the hall for breakfast and looking at the portraits. Also as it was so warm in the room when it was so cold outside.
I was able to access the internet with the aid of the very helpful porter.
I was disappointed not to visit the Chapel, which was being set up for a recording.
I did not steal a brick (whether red, white or blue!).
I would have appreciated a little more info. on Keble College when there, in addition to the college web-site and Wikipedia. I did not think to ask if I might have borrowed the coffee-table book from reception.
Mr Bashir W, April 2013: Thanks for your hospitality, I have started recommending keeble college facilities to friends and other professionals, if ever they are planning anything in that area.
Miss Clare W, April 2013: All the staff at Keble college were very welcoming and accommodating to us. The rooms were all spotless and the towels and toiletries were good quality. Overall really good value for money and would stay again
Mr David B, April 2013: A very enjoyable few days. Breakfast and dinner in the hall a real highlight.
Mrs Mary Anne R, April 2013: Much more fun than staying in a hotel. Only slight quibble is that the rooms are very hot - nice to be cosy, but it was a bit too much!
Ms Claire M, April 2013: Basic room but very clean. The setting was fabulous; breakfast in the Dining Hall a great experience. Central location.
Mrs Vivien C, April 2013: I found it very exciting to stay in a college. It was very central to Oxford. Having breakfast in a Hogwarts type hall was a great experience. I really enjoyed myself.
Mr Philip S, April 2013: Excellent service, clean and comfortable room in a fantastic setting. Great access to all the sites of Oxford
Mrs Jo-Anne R, April 2013: Keble College was hugely welcoming and offered excellent hospitality. The rooms were warm and clean and had everything I needed to be comfortable.
Miss Sophie D, April 2013: Thoroughly enjoyable - I will recommend to others!
Mr Andreas A, April 2013: Was Great, thank you very much
Dr Xiaoning L, April 2013: The college is stunningly beautiful. It's very pleasant to stay there.
Hr. Mathew D. R, April 2013: For the price it was an excellent room. The univeristy succesfulyy upgrades the quality of the room with many little touches. The atmosphere however is the deciding factor.
I shall higly recommend Keble College and stay there should the opportunity offer itself again.
Mr Robert D, April 2013: friendly staff at reception and at dinner/breakfast. Beautiful iconic building a really different experience well worth the money.
Mr Ian A, April 2013: Very welcoming staff, very satisfactory experience, will definitely return and recommend.
Mr Rick L, April 2013: Very nice room facing the quad, breakfast in the hall was also very nice.
Ms Carol F, April 2013: Very pleased - lovely location, nice room, quiet and very friendly staff.
Prof Helen H, April 2013: We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend the experience to others.
Prof Klaas D, April 2013: I would certainly book this place again. Close to downrown,
Miss María Z, April 2013: We have had a great stay at Keble.
The Keble architecture is beautiful, waking up in the mornings with the view of the quad through the window and having breakfast in its hall was amazing, certainly an experience you can't have in a regular hotel.The Superior Family Suite 4 was really good and suited our needs as we were three siblings travelling together from Spain.
The staff was nice, especially the member in the porter lodge. He was really kind and helpful to us.
We are planning to go back to Oxford soon and we'll most definitely book our stay again at the Keble B&B.
Mrs Ailsa R, March 2013: We had a very enjoyable stay and a great experience of a fine Oxford college. The Hall for breakfast was beautiful and the breakfast was excellent. In easy walking distance of the centre. It was extremely cold and the rooms were well heated but my only comment would be that it was too warm to sleep comfortably. However, I would recommend this and look forward to staying again.
Dr. Margret K, March 2013: Loved it very much! A pity we could not book dinner when we were there, I did not Know when I booked the rooms I had to do it by Internet...
overall very good stay! Thanks Margret
Miss Joanne S, March 2013: The view from the twin room of the family suite out onto the Liddon Quad is outstanding. Our room was near to the chapel, which is beautiful. We were given a warm welcome at reception and a helpful student showed us to our room. We didn't want to leave.
Dr Thea L, March 2013: Easy to find. Very peaceful. Beautyful surroundings.
Ms Joanna W, March 2013: Service varied at breakfast between excellent (Sunday) and ok (Saturday). Generally an excellent experience - I will use this again.
Mrs Celia C, March 2013: An excellent way to see the city - central location and beautiful surroundings, would definitely do it again, even though the room was basic, it had all that we needed for a pleasant stay .
Mrs sara C, March 2013: We arrived at Keble expecting a basic room with no frills and while it was obviously a student room we were impressed with the little extras such as toiletry items and a well stocked arrival tray.
The dining hall is simply stunning. The experience of breakfasting in such a way was worth every penny.
We shall use Keble again and recommend it to others.
Mrs ISABELLE G, March 2013: I really enjoyed the beauty and the authenticity of the place.
Prof Arthur H, March 2013: I have taken the couple of minutes to complete this survey because I would like to make special mention of the service level from a variety of frontline College staff. All were friendly, courteous and made a particular effort to help with the usual array of trivial problems of visitors. Commonly in such environments, one finds that deflection rather than solution is the goal. Here the approach was delightfully different and the staff should know that their efforts are appreciated.
Dr John S, March 2013: Not ony good value but great experience in maginficent venue. Staff most helpful.
Mr Nigel M, March 2013: Great place to stay. Will be back again.
Mrs Vivienne L, March 2013: A fantastic stay. Accomodation was excellent value in a beautiful central location. Impressive breakfast in an amazing setting. STaff in the porters lodge could not have been more helpful. Would highly recommend.
Mr Paul T, March 2013: I came down because my daughter was here for a taster day and i was not disappointed. Excellent stay was really impressed with the college, staff were friendly, there was complimentary shower gels, soaps and moisturisers, tea and offer facilities were also a surprise bonus, the breakfast was outstanding served in a magnificent hall, views and architecture was fabulous, been a building surveyor this really appealed to me. Only downside was my room was above the cleaners store and was woken early by the staff.
Mr Tom R, February 2013: very pleasant stay in lovely surroundings
Mr John S, January 2013: Keble College B&B is an excellent short stay in Oxford. Its not 5 star like the Randolph (no TV, etc) but neither is the price. It costs more than a Travelodge but its not 2 miles out of town. And it has more character, beauty, interest and charm than both of them put together. Cosy, clean room & bathroom with all you need and a great breakfast. Terrific Oxford experence right in the center of all the history. Not recommended if you have a car because the town (car unfriendly when I was there in 1980) will have you feeding expensive meters every two hours or slogging 2 miles out of town on the park'n'ride shuttle bus.
Mr Harvey P, December 2012: Bed was comfortable. Had a great stay. We would come again if we ever need a room in Oxford.
Ms Cáit M, December 2012: A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The food & service at breakfast were superb_best of any of the colleges at which I've stayed! The on-going buildings /refurbishment works inevitably caused some restrictions,so I look forward to a return visit later, in 2013. Thank you to all the staff at Keble.
Mrs Jenny B, December 2012: I did fill in a questionaire in the room, but there's no harm in repeating it. It is the second time I have stayed with you and both times have been very happy with the food, accommodation and service. Many thanks and Happy Christmas to you all.
Mr Fred S, December 2012: Our family room Far exceeded our expectations. Nice towels and toiletries, comfy bed and lovely and clean. We will be back to Keble.
Mr John D, December 2012: An excellent exprerience,the welcome and catering team were very welcoming and helpful, even though the butter was brought to the table well after we had finished our meal. Mistakes can happen. The room was very basic, but then, when you realise that this is student accommodation offered when available, you appreciate the value for money. 10\10. Excellent. We shall certainly return. Thank you
Mrs Monica B, December 2012: Great experience in a traditional college. We were so glad to have the chance to eat in the magnificent dining hall
Mr Steve S, December 2012: The breakfast and overall setting are the highlights. Staff are all very helpful and I enjoyed my stay. The room was quite basic but clean and warm and in keeping with college rooms.
Mrs Anne W, October 2012: Very enjoyable experience. The only regret is that the chapel was closed while work was being done so we missed seeing it. I would definately return if/when I'm back in Oxford.
Ms Patricia J, October 2012: Thank you so much for making the Keble College experience possible for me online. I booked after I arrived in England and everything went without a hitch. I even stayed an extra day. You are wonderful. Kind regards, Pat Johnston
Ms Josephine T, October 2012: Very friendly staff, enjoyed visit. Only problem parking
Mr Simon M, October 2012: The accommodation, meals, service were all good
But additionally, the experience was priceless
Mrs Jan C, October 2012: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff were wonderful. Thank you!
Mr james L, October 2012: Keble College was a lovely place to stay for the night.
The close by pub "Eagle and Child" was a delight for our dinner and the breakfast in the 'great hall' was charming.
Mr vecdi ibrahim B, October 2012: What a great idea to allow Oxford guests to have axcess to university dorms. Took us back to our college days... Thank you...
Mr Jeremy E, October 2012: A welcome change to the normal hotel experience. The university rooms were very good and the breakfast served in the grand dining room. Very memorable!
Mr Kevin G, October 2012: WOW - what a way to experience Oxford, we only came for the general open day and was looking for somewhere to stay. My daughter was that impressed with the experience she has chosen Keble College in her application. I would definately use this service again - fantstic value and a real sense of belonging to a historic setting
Dr Daniel M, October 2012: I did not know of the option to use college rooms for out-of-term visits before. This is a great service which I have already recommended to friends and colleagues. A perfect experience!
Mr john W, October 2012: All of our party said they really enjoyed the experience,rooms central and in a lovely location,the food was of a good standard.
Mr Hugh H, October 2012: Although room was basic - great location and very atmospheric.
Mrs Barbara E, October 2012: I have recommended this B&B to family who plan to travel to the UK in the next 24 months! It was a wonderful experience and location.
The only thing that I feel should be added to the facilities is a small in- room refrigerator for drinks.
Thank you for this survey and the chance to comment. Barbara
Mr Christopher T, October 2012: Excellent stay very enjoyable.
Mr Andrew G, October 2012: Very efficient booking service.
College accommodation exactly as expected, breakfast excellent quality in super hall, staff courteous and helpful.
Mrs Margaret A, October 2012: This is the second time I have used Keble and do now recommend you to people - even to two ladies I met at the station returning to Ashby who had recently been in Oxford from Holland. I find the whole experience very comfortable and safe. See you next year for the open week end.
I do believe however that people may not know about you - you are a hidden gem - which suits me but as far as promotion I think the experience at Keble is better by word of mouth than lots of advertising.
Mr David C, October 2012: Highly receommended. My sister had a single on the Park Street side (my wife and I overlooked the quad) and she did say it was a bit noisey from traffic, but you warn against this in your website. Breakfast in Hall was excellent. Looked in the chapel, quite beautiful. Will use colleges again.
Mrs Judy H, October 2012: Very enjoyable stay
Mr Alistair T, October 2012: Overall very good
Ms Debra B, October 2012: My son and I had a wonderful time! We found the staff to be extra accommodating. When I had an issue with the car park and having to phone in, the desk clerk used her personal cell phone to help me out. That was incredibly helpful. It saved me from a ticket and made the stay less stressful. Watching the Olympics was also a plus since we were able to watch with people from the UK who were as excited about the races as we were. I would definitely go back!
Mr Peter S, October 2012: Keble is in a very central location, gives a good taste of the academic/college atmosphere, had modern facilities, the breakfasts were huge, and we were well located for our son's graduation from Lincoln. So thank you, a great experience all round, Peter and Elaine Smyth
Mrs Barbara C, September 2012: Room very clean
Mr Ross M, September 2012: It was a shame we had to leave for London early because the breakfast room looked amazing
Ms Carol B, September 2012: My stay at Oxford was the highlight of my 18-day visit to England, thanks in large part to my rooms at Keble. I felt very privileged to be staying in such a beautiful place, and wouldn't have changed a single thing that Kelble offers. I'll be back!
Mr Christopher D, September 2012: We thoroughly enjoyes our stay at Keble College and hope to retun for a longer stay another time.
Mrs Kate S, September 2012: Very good and clean. very handy for Oxford and more interesting to stay than a hotel. All that's missing is a mini bar and a tv!
Prof Gavin R, September 2012: We travelled with our little family, and found the family suite highly suitable: all on the ground floor; close to the main quad and dining; and eqipped with mini kitchen, with fridge and microwave. All staff were friendly and helpful, and this made our stay for the graduations very enjoyable. Well done Keble! We would visit again.
Mr David C, September 2012: a very pleasant 3 day stay
Dr Roisin N, September 2012: The staff were outstandingly friendly and lovely and the wonderful surroundings make it very special indeed. This would definitely be my preferred option for future trips to Oxford. The only (small) criticism would be the availability of Wifi as it is useful for checking in for flights, finding out about what's on etc. and is becoming increasingly important. That said, we used the wifi in a nearby part of the quad and it was fine. Many thanks to Keble for a lovely weekend.
Mrs Clare S, September 2012: Superb way to experience Oxford.
Awed by the history and elegance.
Mrs Chris C, September 2012: An enjoyable stay with breakfast taken in the fantastic 'Hall'. An awe inspiring moment.
Mr John P, September 2012: Will be looking to book again and will recommend to freinds. Really enjoyable visit.
Miss Joan H, September 2012: Our only "complaint" was that we did not manage to have dinner in Hall (no space). That would have been the icing on the cake! A very happy experience, services and accommodation exactly as offered; and single rooms are usually hard to find and disproportionately expensive.
Mrs Linda B, September 2012: We enjoyed staying at Keble College. You can't beat the atmosphere. The porters were very helpful and pleasant. It was nice to have laundry facilities. The location was good though the room facing the street was noisy.
Ms ANA L, September 2012: Our stay at Keble College was wonderful! Comfortable and clean room (much larger than mines at university!!), and from above all we really enjoyed breakfast at the Hall. People were very helpful and friendly and food was great.
Mrs AUDREY K, September 2012: Enjoyed every moment and the Porters were very helpful and pleasant. Was impressed by one of the young ladies cleaning the rooms on the level lower from where I was staying because she helped me carry my luggage to the ground floor without asking her to do so.
Mr Ken R, September 2012: First class arrangement. Will use again, should I need to.
Prof Hideyasu S, September 2012: One week stay in Keble College brought me into a life of my postgraduate day. It is easy access to the department which invited me in the Univeristy. A small problem is that some guests made noise at 3:00 AM at a Satruday night. They made mess, glass-break sound spread on the floor of my room. That is it. Otherwise, staff are very friendly and informative.
Mr Scot H, September 2012: We were very happy, both with our one night at Keble, and with my daughter's week stay at Wadham. Thank you.
Mrs Judith L, September 2012: We were very impressed with the service we received from you for both bookings - college room and guided tour - and we will certainly use you again.
Mr Stephen C, September 2012: A birthday treat for our 21 year old and 18 year old sons was a weekend in Oxford (their choice). The experience was made special by the stay at Keble College. What a great location, excellent accomodation and we were impressed with all of the staff who we came into contact with from the Porters lodge, the Dining Hall and left luggae team. Will certainly look to use this unique service again.
Mr Antony M, August 2012: great location, beautiful view of quadrant out of windows, very good service from portering, cleaning and kitchen staff. Breakfast in the refectory is top class experience in all aspects.
Miss Lindsay M, August 2012: Welcoming staff, room as advertised and good breakfast. Good value for money.
Mr Donna S, August 2012: Thankyou for a wonderful time.
Mr Jamie C, August 2012: great and easy - thank you
Ms Melanie H, August 2012: Beautiful settings, very helpful staff at the desk office... and a clean room at a reasonable price.
Renting a university room is an interesting way of being at the same time in the heart of the city's history and discovering it.
Dr Gloria A, August 2012: Very lovely! My first experience in rooms at Oxford. Stayed in 3 colleges this trip & yours was top notch! Clean room, functioning bathroom & shower, safe, amazing architecture old & new. Fine breakfast & dinner. Thanks so much!
Dr Sally B, August 2012: The breakfast experience in the dining hall at Keble was particularly memorable, what a great location for the first meal of the day.
Mrs Christine W, August 2012: We loved staying at Keble - the architecture is wonderful and a glimpse of 'Light of the World' was just tremendous.
Breakfast in the fabulous dining room was another hope to be repeated experience.
Mrs Heidi S, August 2012: It was an outstanding experience to stay at Keble College: great location, very helpful and friendly staff, and excellent facilities. We would return to stay at Keble on any future visits.
Other Diane R, August 2012: I felt safe and truly looked after I would recomend it to anyone
Ms Dawn W, August 2012: The location, convenience and room were all super. The staff were very pleasant and helpful in an unintrusive way. Bed linen and towels were spotless and neat. Loved the bathroom. Everything was great about the stay here and the Hall at breakfast was amazing. Will definitely be coming back to Keble again.
Mr Peter P, August 2012: The room was basic yet clean, the breakfast good but not excellent. But the sheer beauty, tranquillity and atmosphere of the college more than compensated for that. All in all excellent value for money (especially if compared to the much over-priced Oxford hotels). Full marks!
Mr Andy D, August 2012: Fantastic experience - great memories made - good location for visiting Oxford
Mr Igor K, August 2012: The main advantage of Keble College accommodation is good location near Oxford University Park, beautiful views at the College, and just 5-7 min on foot from the most famous places. If you are in Oxford just for a few days and you can't find accommodation among local landlords, this variant has reasonable prices and comfortable rooms. Rooms are not luxurious, but amazing views at Keble College compensate it.
Mr Michael T, August 2012: It was a lovely stay - and my friend agrees.
Dinner was excellent value and was presented most amicably. Breakfast was great - as usual.
Will definitely book in again.
Thank you all for a really welcoming and friendly experience.
Dr Heather B, August 2012: I had a grand time; the whole experience was comfortable, and the location wonderful. Thank you!
Ms Rebecca P, August 2012: As before the service and all staff are excellent, the best we have come experienced in Oxford colleges. Room is basic and ideal for what we need and the setting is just lovely.
Mrs Maura M, August 2012: Only complaint with the cooked breakfast was that the plates and food were on the cold side but everything else was excellent.
Dr Mary Ann J, August 2012: I always enjoy staying and Keble. My students from Baylor University and I will, hopefully, be back to stay with you in July 2013.
Dr Helen O, August 2012: I enjoyed discovering that the library I wanted to use was across the street in Radcliffe Science -- but the college is very convenient to the Bodleian too.
I loved the room -- spacious, with a big desk, and a very good bathroom, and lovely windows and view. The only problem I had was the group of children who shrieked and ran around the quad at 7 am. I think some effort might have been made to remind the visitors that some people were still sleeping -- until aroused by screams and the sound of running competitions.
Mrs margaret C, August 2012: We booked here as our daughter was getting married at Oxford Town Hall, we were delighted with our stay, although the rooms were basic they were
very clean. The long hall we had breakfast in was fabulous, you could see
the look of wonder on the faces of people as they walked through the door,
the breakfast was also very good.
Mr John B, August 2012: We loved looking over the quad it was magnificant - wow what a view. Only small thing we were really hot - a small fan would have made a big difference. The room was clean and spacious.
Breakfast was great fun - really enjoyed that experience.
Dr Jonathan F, August 2012: Really enjoyed stay - beautiful surroundings. Keble team very helpful, dinner at High Table a treat and wish to thank them for accomodating us for an early breakfast on our departure day.

Mr brian C, August 2012: A very pleasant experience - thank you.
Mr Michael P, August 2012: Superb manner of ALL staff
Mr Colin J, August 2012: We acknowledge room & facilities are designed for student use & will show signs of "ware & tear", although we did stay at Christ Church College for 2 weeks & the rooms there were of a good standard with obvious upgrades having been done.Front office staff were very good in giving helpful & friendly advice. Also being allowed to store luggage at front office pending booking out/in was a good service. Thank you.
Mrs Jennifer C, August 2012: A most enjoyable stay. It was a pity that we were not able to experience an evening meal. I will be recommending it to friends who are visiting the UK.
Prof Paula M, August 2012: Our family of six, including three college students and a high school student, thoroughly enjoyed our Keble College stay. The breakfast in the striking dining hall was a highlight and the student common room was a great place for the kids to watch the Olympics. The rooms were very clean and the service could not have been better. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We very much look forward to a return visit.
Mr Brian A, August 2012: It was a fantastic experience ,lovely setting .
All of the staff were pleasant and very helpful, especially when our son got the time wrong for breakfast the senior staff person on the morning arranged to have some breakfast put aside for him.
We would like to thank all involved and will certainly return#

Ms Elisabeth J, August 2012: A most enjoyable visit. Everyone of the staff that we met were most helpful and pleasant.

Mr Brian T, July 2012: We visited Keble College last year, fell in love with Oxford and wanted to stay this year, enjoy the city once again and have the privilege of sleeping there, to awaken to eating breakfast in the wonderful dining hall.
The staff was very pleasant, accommodating and helpful. I will definitely recommend the College to anyone who asks. Thanks for the opportunity to stay at Keble College and best of luck in the future!
Mr Lilia Maria S, July 2012: Me parecio un servcio excelente el cual recomiendo a todos los que le he contado de nuestro viaje.
Dr Jamieson C, July 2012: Breakfast service a little disorganised but more than made up for the excellent quality!
Mrs Cassandra K, July 2012: Keble College is a beautiful site. The quads are well-kept and green. The Porters were extremely helpful and went out of their way to answer questions and provide advice. Superior staff. Breakfast was lovely in the dining hall. We also met other nice guests. The laundry room needed a good cleaning, but was better the second time we used it. We recommend Keble College for a unique experience.
Mr Julie W, July 2012: great experience if a bit on the pricey side. great location.
website could be more clear on explaining rooms/location at each college

I felt like a lord.
Prof Jeremy H, July 2012: An extremely enjoyable stay and experience.
Ms stephanie N, July 2012: Would recommend Keble to anyone going to Oxford. Regarding breakfast, the setting was magnificent, the staff were friendly and polite, but the tea and coffee could have been better.
Mrs Mary F, July 2012: Great experience staying inside an actual Oxford college.To be there late at night and early morning was quite special :the ambience of architecture , gardens and the traditions of learning .
Maybe better knowledge of available parking would be beneficial as the car park we were sent to for overnight was only a day car park with a hefty fine for cars inadvertently left too long .
Ms karen N, July 2012: room was older, not yet remodeled. Simple but adequate. No lifts, so be prepared to carry your bags upstairs. The staff was really helpful and friendly. I appreciated the 24 hour staff member on duty in Porter Lodge. He helped us get settled, figure out our WiFi connection, and find the pub we needed in the evening! Great experience.
Dr KATHLEEN M, July 2012: Unique experience staying in such beautifully kept grounds. Rooms good for student accomodation. Cleaners very eficient and thorough. Breakfast good. Will definitely stay next time in Oxford.
Mr Paul D, July 2012: Very enjoyable experience
Dr Amy H, July 2012: Very clean accommodation. Attentive staff at meal times with good range of choices. Would definitely stay again!

Mr James C, July 2012: We were pleasantly surprised to have a two room suite for our family of four. The accommodations were very well appointed and pleasant. The staff were helpful and we enjoyed the experience of eating in the dining hall.
Mr Robert P, July 2012: Fantastic to stay in such a unique and beautiful place. Breakfast in the great hall was incredible!
Mr Richard L, June 2012: We were travelling to Oxford for the University Open days, and were thrilled to be able to experience a small taster of the atmosphere. The breakfast in the Great Hall was amazing. There were facilites to leave our bags for the day, and were impressed to be shown around by a current student who was keen, friendly and most of all very helpful.
Ms Anne M, June 2012: I was very happy with my stay at Keble College. The room was pleasant, clean and well-serviced and very suitable for my needs. The view over the quadrangle was superb and breakfast in the Great Hall was wonderful - very atmospheric. The staff in the Porters Lodge were helpful and I had no problems using the website to book. I thought it was very good value for money and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Dr Victoria M, June 2012: It's a bit spartan - and the pillows as old as the college, alas - but the porters and dining hall staff were most welcoming and efficient.
Mr Tim F, June 2012: My one night stay was a wonderful experience and I'm hoping to repeat it in the near future.
Mrs Pauline M, June 2012: 7of us stayed at Keble. We loved the refurbished rooms overlooking the Quad. Some of the party have difficulty with stairs and so the allocation of ground floor rooms was appreciated. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was very enjoyable. A great stay.
Ms Nerajda K, June 2012: I enjoyed staying at the Keble College and especially appreciated the assistance from the people at the porter's lodge, whose precious help facilitated my stay there.
Ms mary g O, June 2012: wonderful stay. excellent hospitality. Staff in porters lodge and at breakfast could not have been more helpful. Delighted to see Holman Hunt painting in chapel=maybe you should advertise this more.
Mrs Linda W, June 2012: cleanliness of the room was excellent. Bed was comfortable. Perhaps one or two pictures on the walls would have made it more homely. Cooked breakfast could have been warmer. Restaurant manager was friendly and wellcoming.
Mrs Elizabeth T, June 2012: We really enjoyed this trip - thankyou.
Miss Alison N, June 2012: Fantastic breakfast, very warm room (quite hot during the night) and friendly and enthuiastic staff. I would definitely stay here again.

Mr Stephen B, June 2012: Great suite of rooms for a family of 4, double was a little narrow around the bed but lots of storage and new furnishings.
Mrs Viviane B, June 2012: A great experience spending some time inside a college. Staff is very helpfull.
Mrs Philippa C, June 2012: I was welcomed warmly on arrival at Keble College Lodge. My 'superior' room was pleasant and comfortable (though rather lacking a view, except of the road outside). It was very clean and had everything I needed; reasonably quiet too, as I had requested. Breakfast the following day was very nice, in the Hall. Service excellent (though perhaps my server's English wasn't quite up to the difference between scrambled and poached eggs - still, this didn't matter as she was so charming and helpful). I loved the individual generous serving of coffee, kept hot in a thermos flask! I was especially grateful for the Lodge's helpfulness in being willing to safeguard my luggage for a few hours after I checked out so that I could explore Oxford unburdened by it. On my return in the afternoon they were also amenable to my request to use the toilets and eat my lunch on a bench in the Quad. A far nicer venue than any cafe in Oxford! - Overall a delightful experience, and one I am keen to repeat in the near future. Thank you to all who helped to make my stay at Keble so pleasant.
Dr Elisabeth D, May 2012: Spacious, clean and restful accommodation which was what we wanted.
Mr David O, May 2012: Fantastic setting, so much more interesting than any hotel. Decent facilities at the reasonable level expected of a college. Breakfast in the Hall is a terrific experience.
Mrs Helen M, May 2012: My group consisted of 12 Teachers from Germany, Sweden & Italy. They were very impressed with their stay at Keble (especeially the breakfasts!) and I found the people on reception very friendly and helpful. I finish with a quote from one of the Italian teachers - "I will never forget the Keble College you have made my dreams come true" Thank you.
Mr Kenneth B, May 2012: a most enjoyable stay, a very good quad facing room - everything crisp and clean, superb college buildings; and definitely great value for money

Mrs Tomoko K, May 2012: The location could not have been better for Oxford visit. Unique experience. I would like to thank all staff at porters' lodge and dining hall. They were most helpful and pleasant.
Mr David B, May 2012: I am glad I spent my night in Oxford at Keble College and will do it again if I come back to Oxford in the future.
Dr Markus B, May 2012: Wonderful Experience!
The Dinning room is impressive!
A must when going to Oxford.
Mrs Hayley P, May 2012: Really helpful staff and great, clean rooms with lots of character.
Mrs Rebecca B, May 2012: The refurbished rooms at Keble are much much better. Having stayed last year in the older rooms, where the shower barely worked and everything was clean but shabby, this has really made a difference. I booked Keble this time as it was the only (convenient) option - but now the rooms are so much better, I would put it to the top of the list - there is nothing I could improve, except the ability to turn down/off the radiator. (I just opened the window, but that's not a very environmentally friendly option!) Many thanks.
Ms Linda D, May 2012: My daughter stayed at Keble and enjoyed the experience immensely
Miss Maja M, May 2012: Really great way to discover Oxford 'from the kitchen'. Beautiful building and great standard of room. Unfortunately I wasn't able to experience the highlight of this venue as the breakfast isn't served until 8am...
Dr Jorge F, May 2012: I found Keble College a wonderful college to stay in, and strategically located within Oxford. The staff (Porter's Lodge and Dining Hall) exceptionally nice. Overall, a most pleasant experience. The room was appropriately furnished.
Prof Michael W, May 2012: Very pleased with the whole experience. Breakfast was really excellent.
Ms Kate S, April 2012: It was a great alternative to hotels, very central and good value for money. We'll be using it again, I don't doubt!

Mr David M, April 2012: everyone was very friendly and helpful--a very good experience all round
Mr Koen D, April 2012: Staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. Really excellent.
Mrs Sarah A, April 2012: We visited as a group of four and found staff and facilities to be beyond what was expected and of a very high quality. We would strongly recommend the experience of staying at Keble to others.
Mr Alan T, April 2012: Had a really pleasant time here. New accommodation means I benefited from the the new furnishings. The bathroom has windows and shutters and you can control how much natural light you want in. The room is spacious with ample storage space. Really great new rooms. The grounds were great and everybody is just friendly in this College.
The breakfasts are great value for money - really stuffed with full English breakfast during my stay.
There are also some room to leave my personal stuff when I needed to come back to it at a later time, having already check out.
Overall, my experience here was absolutely great and would definitely recommend it to my friends and colleagues when they need to stay in Oxford.
Dr Heidemarie B, April 2012: I had a very nice stay at Keble college. The "sraff" was very friendly!
Dr Stuart R, April 2012: The room and breakfast were good. The bed was a little short.
Mr Tomas B, April 2012: The room was very small, but comfortable. Breakfast at the wonderful college dining hall was the best part of our overall nice experience at Keble College.
Mrs Cathy W, April 2012: Will be coming back later this year. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Mr Izak S, April 2012: Thanks for the stay.
Ms HILARY C, April 2012: lovely to sit in the grounds
Ms Ezra Z, April 2012: Very helpful staff, room was basic but comfortable and warm. Great stay- thanks!
Mrs Diana H, April 2012: We really enjoyed our stay at Keble College and the breakfast in Hall was a high light - being able to visit the chapel was also wonderful. Thank you very much
Mr Romain W, April 2012: Lovely place and very beautyful Breakfast/Dinner Hall !
Ms michelle C, April 2012: The weekend was lovely, and made really special by the beautiful college accommodation. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast in the dining room was wonderful, and it was all fantastic value for money. I will definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone. I have only one tiny criticism - I would have liked more bedding to be available if needed; even with the heating on I might have been a little cold without my flannelette nightie :-)
Mr Andrew W, April 2012: The breakfast was quite good and the setting in the Hall was amazing. Housekeeping did a great job. The room was very clean, albeit "tired-looking." The toilet in our particular room was in need of repair or replacement. Very much enjoyed the peaceful setting in the quad.
Mrs Pauline P, April 2012: Thank you so much, we had a great stay, our children loved their stay and beautiful Keble College was so unique and peaceful. We will be back and recommending you as well.
Mrs Sarah B, April 2012: All the staff were extremely helpful and had a lot of local knowledge. It was delightful staying in a college, and one so convenient to everything Oxford has to offer
Miss Sandra Johanna L, April 2012: I'd book the same again.
Mr John R, April 2012: Our stay at Keble College was most enjoyable. The whole group were very pleased with the accommodation and thought that it was good value for money.
Mr John F, April 2012: The staff were welcoming and friendly and gave excellent service. Just a small point though. The breakfast procedure needs working on as the process wasn't explained so before i had started eating the cereal the hot food arrived. One of us didn't want the hot breakfast but it wasn't explained you could have pastries. And what happened to pots of tea! A pot of hot water is not the same.
However, despite this grumble had a wonderful time and will recommend to friends.
Mr Ronald C, April 2012: Keble College room was freshly refinished and in excellent condition. It was very clean and comfortable.
The location was fantastic to tour Oxford. As a note there was no parking but everything was within walking.
The eating hall was excellent environment for having breakfast. We enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Marianne W, April 2012: Will certyainly go back
Mrs Bridget H, April 2012: excellent venue for a gathering of friends ...each making their own booking to suit their needs. I throrughly enjoyed my stay.
Mr David P, March 2012: All we had hoped for, with added bonus of excellent weather. Wish we had been able to stay longer.
Miss Alexia L, March 2012: I left my feedback with the venue. On the whole I thought it was excellent and unlike the average B&B experience. The only thing lacking from my room were coat hangers.
Mr John S, March 2012: Good reception and no problems
Ms Rosemary S, March 2012: Staff at Keble College very customer focussed
Miss Aisling O, March 2012: The quad rooms were lovely. However the standard double and twin rooms were very basic. But it was good value for money.
Miss Lucy H, March 2012: Keble is a beautiful place to stay - we had ensuite rooms over looking the quad - wonderful views. Fabulous breakfast, in stunning hall with lovely staff to help. We will definitely be arranging future visits to Oxford and stay there.
One small niggle that left us a a little disappointed, we did ask on 3 occassions if someone could give us a quick tour of Keble College. My friend's Dad studied at Keble (he sadly died last year) - part of reason for staying at Keble was to look around and perhaps find/see photos of past students. We rang in advance to ask for quick tour (and was told yes) and then asked twice while there..also told yes but then were unable to find anyone with time to help us. If someone could tell us for next time if / where alumni info / photos might be found that would be icing on cake :-)
Many thanks for contributing to a wonderful weekend - the weather helped too! We were visiting the Oxford Literary Festival - which was great - and we plan to come back for the full festival next time, and will most likely staff out at Keble again.
Mrs Susan E, March 2012: Many thanks - we had a great time. Everyone was charming and very helpful. We enjoyed our meals and we think the college is beautiful. We think you should tell the people who make postcards of the colleges that we looked in just about every shop in Oxford and couldn't find a single one of Keble - such a shame when it's such a beauty. Many thanks for a wonderful experience.
Miss emily B, March 2012: melissa, the groups manager was extremily helpful thoughout the booking preocess, which changed a number of time. the dining was excellent and a wonderful tasty meal - great value. the porters lodge could have been alittle more organised but they were friendly. the location and buildings/grounds are stunning - i shall definatly be recomending this place to all
Mrs Teresa M, March 2012: Good value, bed creaky everytime I moved, concerned it would wake my husband. Breakfast good and surroundings of Keble hall dining room very impressive, service was excellent.
Mr Joel R, March 2012: Stayed a week in Keble College in newly-remodeled room (ground floor near chapel). Wonderful service, especially at breakfast, and greatly enjoyed the historic location with easy walk to everything I needed. If I return to Oxford, I will definitely stay in one of the colleges again.
Mr justin S, March 2012: I really enjoyed the stay and breakfast in that amazing spoace was memorable.
Ms Julia T, March 2012: Room smelt slightly but think this was the cleaning product that smelt rather institutional.
The guy on the front desk, a student, was super friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was enjoyable more because of the setting than the food. Overall would definitely recommend.
Mr Yih S, March 2012: The superior single room (ensuite) is very clean. There is wifi available in my room. The reception staff is very friendly and helpful.
Dr Elaine W, March 2012: Clean room, well equipped. Preferred College setting much better than staying in a hotel. Good value, and very central.

Dr Roger F, December 2011: An excelllent way of seeing the Colleges of Oxford.
Mr Keith W, December 2011: Totally different than staying in your 'normal' hotels and much much better because there is no noise, only really nice guests, wonderful historic buildings and setting. Eating in the main hall was an experience not to missed in itself. The standard of service and food was excellent. The staff treated you like a VIP all the time. Such perfect English manners. Great! Will definitely use again in preference to any other accommodation option.
Dr CHRIS A, December 2011: Room was very clean and functional with a great view over the quad- a bit hot though! It was a shame no evening meal offered as the Dining Hall is magnificent but at least we were able to have breakfast there. Lodge porters very friendly and helpful.
Overall a really enjoyable stay and would do it again
Dr John P, December 2011: Impeccable in every way. Next time I will allow more time for a more relaxed breakfast.
Ms Marcia B, October 2011: A really nice alternative to staying in a hotel. My mother & I loved the experience. The room was fairly basic but perfectly adequate and clean. Appreciated walking around the grounds and visiting the chapel and having an excellent breakfast in such a beautiful hall. Would definitely choose to stay here if I return to Oxford.

Not only is the tariff very competitive the whole experience of actually staying at the university really added to my visit. I look forward to another opportunity to stay at Oxford again.
Mrs Anne Q, September 2011: I have never been to Oxford before. I am 63 and travelled alone, and booked online. Kebble College was absolutely wonderful. I felt safe and secure in my room at night and was blown away by the awesome dining hall, courteous staff. I had a wonderful stay, thank you! Anne Q

Mrs Dianne S, September 2011: A fantastic "Oxford Experience"! Simple but comfortable room - excellent value for money.
One can only envy the students who actually study and live there!
Ms Vanessa L, September 2011: Our stay was peaceful and very enjoyable, we'd definitely return again, we do every summer. The staff was friendly and welcoming.
Miss Anne-Marie G, September 2011: What a lovely and unusual experience. I will highy recommend Keble as a destination to any of my friends who want to visit Oxford.
Mrs Brenda W, August 2011: We really enjoyed our stay.
The room was as expected to be honest, very nice,basic, what we expected student accomodation would be like. The bed was really comfy, clean and bathroom was clean also.
Breakfast was excellent and the people who served us were lovely.
Thank you so much
Ms Cheryl E, August 2011: Absolutely unique B&B experience. Wonderful view over the quad, perfectly maintained grounds, beautiful buildings and the Dining Hall was the most amazing dining experience (Hogwarts minus owl). Rooms basic but well-maintained, clean and comfortable. Would recommend. Excellent value for money.
Ms Alison L, August 2011: The accommodation was excellent and exceeded my expectations, with only two rooms sharing a shower room on each floor. The room was clean and spacious and contained everything I could need. The breakfast in the hall was wonderful and all staff were friendly and helpful. The student who showed us to our room was very helpful and pleasant. All in all a lovely stay to be recommended.
Mrs Lorraine H, August 2011: Excellent, would certainly book to stay at Keble College again. Booking on-line straight forward. All in the party said ideal venue.

Eileen P, July 2011: I was grateful for the lovely warm weather, but it did make for a warm room. Wish there was a way to get some air movement in the room. But otherwise, an enjoyably stay. My compliments to your wonderful staff.
Ms Pauline S, July 2011: Booked for my snr citizen sister, who was full of praise for all staff - very polite, helpful etc. She was able to change room to one on a lower floor with little fuss. She loved breakfast in the dining hall and was impressed by the quality of food. Only drawback was the broken blind, which was fixed.
Ms Leigh G, July 2011: This was the second time that I had stayed at Keble. In late June the twin room was £110, which I was quite cross about when I saw the room. This time the same sort of twin room in the same building was (inexplicably) £88, which was better value, especially considering how basic the rooms are.
Mr Ryan C, July 2011: Great value for the money: comparable to 4 star London hotels at twice the price.
Mr Bob H, July 2011: lovely place would return excellent position all Oxford attractions
Ms Amy L, July 2011: A wonderful trip to Keble College! Will definitely book again!
E J, July 2011: Fabulous surroundings/ atmosphere. Room a bit 'studenty' but good value for the price
Mrs Samantha R, July 2011: Fantastic experience, beautiful college, chapel and dining room - just like "Hogwarts"!
Mrs Fran B, July 2011: This was basic accommodation - but what we expected, what surprised us was the beautiful buildings and surroundings that we stayed in. The location to Oxford was wonderful.
Miss Brenna K, July 2011: As a former abroad student at Keble, it was wonderful staying there again. Loved it. Loved everything about it.
Mrs Naomi Yabe M, July 2011: I enjoyed the atmospher on the campus. The dining is really nice. Wish to come back again.
Mr luke M, July 2011: The college was exactly as we expected from the decription on the web site. The whole experience was very enjoyable and one that we will remember for some time to come.
Luke Mitchell and family
Ms L S, July 2011: Enjoyable stay in Oxford, Keble is an excellent & beautiful location for exploring Oxford. Room was clean & spacious, & the breakfast was delicious. College staff friendly & helpful. Would stay again.
Carmen Gonzalez V, June 2011: Excellent the staff
Jenny W, April 2011: This was, as ever, a wonderful stay, and I'm sad that it is only available in holiday times!
Mr Martin L, April 2011: A very pleasant stay. Excellent value for money.
Mr Robert F, April 2011: Would recommend Kebel College to friends.
Mr Olivier T, April 2011: Most beautiful view from a room ever, with a lovely service and a nice room. Would have been perfect had the bed been a little less bouncy and soft, but for the money it's a gem.
Kirsten B, April 2011: The college provided the perfect place for our stay and was very accommodating regarding leaving luggage with the porter. My only disappointment was that the room did not have a quad view but looked out over the street.
Dr John L, April 2011: A very good service indeed. Too bad that |Keble has not more parking space. Our son is disabled, and if we ever visited ' as a family' we would need secure parkintg accommodation.
Otherwise, everything else was fine.
Andrea V, April 2011: in one word a wonderful experience! everything was fine and very well organised! very good staff and breakfast! thank you!
jennie blood S, April 2011: Dinner in hall was disappointing because of the standard of the food. An excellent base for exploring Oxford. I'd recommend Keble college bed and breakfast to others.
WILLIAM M, April 2011: This was the first time I'd booked a college room in Great Britain, and I was pleasantly surprised. My room was plain, but comfortable. The breakfasts were fabulous. The college staff were very welcoming and cordial. It was an excellent experience all 'round.
Jason P, April 2011: Nice overall, and good value for the price. Might be more cost effective to have WiFi in rooms, but no complaints at all!
Mrs Dalla J, April 2011: Just wonderful, and the porter was great. Thank you.
Ms Christina M, April 2011: I can't remember the number of our room but it overlooked the quad. Surroundings were fabulous and the service extremely friendly and professional.
Mrs susan M, April 2011: Cannot reccommend this place highly enough. It was a priviledge to stay in such a beautiful building in such a great central location within Oxford. The buildings and grounds a simply stunning. The student room was fairly basic, but everything worked and there were lots of fluffy white towels for us. Everyone we spoke to from Keble could not have been more helpful - making us feel extremely welcome, particularly Jo at breakfast (spoiling my husband with his huuuge cooked breakfast). I would definitely go back and have already recommended it to friends.
Mr Tom R, April 2011: If you ever want to visit Oxford - stay in one of the colleges.
Breige M, April 2011: The service from the Porters' Lodge was excellent they were extremely friendly and helpful. Breige McCaighy
Dr Daniela M, April 2011: We've decided to keep Keble College in mind whenever we come back to Oxford! We very much appreciate the staff accommodating us with our one-year old son. Thanks!
Christine M, April 2011: A wonderful way to get a real insight into the Oxford colleges
Linda A, April 2011: Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Keble College. The room was clean and comfortable and the view of the chapel and quad was wonderful. Experiencing the student perspective on the city enhanced our weekend in Oxford.
Mr David J. P, April 2011: Great room, breakfast and overall experience.
MIKHAIL S, April 2011: A whole the impression is fine. I'll use the Keble rooms with great pleasure.
As to remarks: on my point of view it is necessary to confirm placing the furniture and electric sockets. WAnd what about TV? Is its absence some concept of the traditional colleges? If yes - no remarks.
Tom W, April 2011: I was impressed. Room was good and clean, staff friendly, would recommend to anyone visiting Oxford.
Hamish S, April 2011: Keble hall was great for breakfast, a nice unexpected surprise.
Mr Colin G, April 2011: THe staff could not have been more friendly nor have been more efficient.
While to rooms were basic (as was to be expected) the surroundings were incredible. Everybody should have the Harry Potter experience at least once.
I would not normally consider this accomodation option but will certainly do so in the future
MIKEL, March 2011: Absolutely Incredible, awesome. The room was very clean and confortable. Clean towels daily,and the breakfast was amazing, very beatifull place. The people was very helpfull and they always treat you in an excelent way. Thanks!! Laura and Mikel (Spain)
Miss Denise K, March 2011: Took my children and they loved the whole experience of being in an Oxford College. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast was excellent quality and served double quick.
Maria B. H, March 2011: Waking up in the tranquillity of the college with the early morning sunshine hitting the face of the clock tower was an extraordinarily beautiful experience. Unfortunately, I did not sleep at all well because the room was too hot. Even with all the radiators turned off, the windows open and lying on top of the bed, the temperature remained high all night because the pipes supplying the radiators run all round the room and remain piping hot all night. Breakfast was a very uplifting and restorative experience - the setting, the choice of food, but most of all the courtesy and attentiveness of the head steward and his delightful team. The sole disappointment was that water for tea was provided in vacuum jugs ie not hot enough for tea to brew properly.
Damion M, March 2011: Staying at Keble College in Oxford while we were there really added to the experience of visiting one of Britain's most famous cities. The staff were lovely and very helpful, especially concerning out 2 year old daughter who came along with us.
Mrs. Katarzyna Maria Durys, March 2011: A marvellous alternative to any 3 star hotel. I would even add, that probably as on a whole college rooms are a better value for money than most 3 star hotel rooms are.
Jenny W, March 2011: This was a wonderful, friendly, helpful college in which to stay. I genuinely look forward to staying again.
Dr Christiane R, March 2011: all excellent, many thanks.
Mrs Irene B, March 2011: I found the website easy to use, however was a little unclear as to the exact location of the room I was booking (old or new blocks). My email query on this was quickly ans efficiently answered. When using the website again, I'll be clearer on these aspects but for a first time user it was a little ambiguous. The whole experience (which involved a number of friends booking at Keble separately to meet for a weekend;mix of families and individuals) was very positive, the location was wonderful and gave us the opportunity to soak up the atmposphere. We will certainly use your service again.
Mr Stephen F, March 2011: I enjoyed the stay and found the service useful and well organized. I would happily book through you again.
Mrs Lucila A, March 2011: all excellent, it s a very good place to stay.
Mr John M, March 2011: everyone at breakfast and in the porters lodge was very helpful and friendly
Madeleine M, March 2011: staff at breakfast were wonderful
Mrs M P, March 2011: Rooms were clean and comfortable. Furnishings a little 'tired' but otherwise perfect for an overnight stay. All staff were friendly and helpful.
Helen K, March 2011: Will happily return - was a wonderful experience.
Andrew D, December 2010: Wonderful stay in spite of arctic weather. Very friendly and helpful staff. Much better than a hotel.
Dr Matthew C, December 2010: Overall a great stay and absolutely no complaints. A wonderful warm room as well!
richard B, December 2010: We booked to see a band at the 02 and wanted a b&b which wasn't to expensive and close to the city Center. Keble College provided all those things and more. The setting was awsome, the rooms were simple but adaquate and the breakfast was lovely.
Gary B, October 2010: Very pleasant experience. Porters lodge particularly helpful.
Kirsty P, October 2010: Loved my stay at Keble College and would stay again.
Only comments ... being a solo female traveller and staying in a room up two flights of stairs it would be nice if the young guy on the desk had offered to help me with my luggage. A nice lady in the office sorted this for me when she saw me struggling and called him to help.
A snack vending machine would be handy.
The breakfast and breakfast staff was excellent and they were very professional!!!
Thank you had a great stay.
Lippold von K, September 2010: My stay was perfect. I would have prefered breakfast at 8 but met very nice people later on.
Peggy T, September 2010: It was a pretty cool to be able to dorm at such a historic university. the rooms were standard, clean, ample space to put our luggage, and had window that looked out to garden/courtyard which was lovely. The breakfast in the long dining hall was splendid - attentive service and setting was superb!
Signa L, September 2010: We especially appreciated the clean towels and bath mat every day.
G B, September 2010: Friendly staff, lovely park and surroundings, room wasn't decorated. Food was nice.
Carla S, September 2010: We have been very pleased with all services provided and kindness of Keble staff - excellent experience !
Martin S, September 2010: Clean & comfortable room, great location close to city centre, highly recommended.
Margaret R, September 2010: Thank you for making rooms available for the public to use when students are not in college. The buildings at Keble College are beautiful, unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to see the Chapel which must also be beautiful.
I was so happy to be able to stay at Keble College and experience a bit of college life ie breakfast in the large Hall, sleeping in the well appointed dorm rooms and just being in the middle of Oxford Colleges. Keble College is very well situated in the town and I always enjoyed my walk by the cemetary and the lovely old buildings on my way back the the College.
Just a few specific inconveniences I experienced: the shower had no ledge on which to put my soaps and the doors latches were hard to close softly. I guess though students probably don't mind too much about these things but as an old person these things are fairly important.
I wish the College staff and students a wonderfull and happy new school year. Thanks again for the opportunity of experiencing Keble College,
Jennifer T, September 2010: We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was great and the room was very comfortable. The only negative and it is a small one was the soap supplied in the bathroom......economise somewhere else and provide better soap and the experience would be perfect. It is very nearly perfect and we would definately stay again and recomend to others.
Rebecca H, September 2010: I really enjoyed my stay at Keble - great for total immersion in the Oxford experience! Room had everything I needed and was clean and comfortable. Absolutely beautiful setting and loved the amazing 'Hogwarts' style dining hall we ate breakfast in. Great value and highly recommended.
Stephane B, September 2010: Very good experience, easy booking and problemless stay.
Sascha K, September 2010: A lovely atmosphere. I will recommend anyone to stay in Keble as it's great.
sara P, September 2010: Very impressed that the college provided wheat free bread! As someone with a wheat allergy, I was very grateful for this.
Christopher H, September 2010: I specifically asked for a room in the old part of college. Though they are much better than they were in the 60's they are a bit basic!
However, enjoyable stay
Anne M, September 2010: Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Margaret G, September 2010: Keble is a stunning location and offers really good facilities for the casual visitor during vacations and term time. It was a rare treat to view Holman Hunt's "Light of the World"in Keble College's impressive chapel.
Breakfast in the magnificent hall was a memorable experience. Without exception, all of the staff were helpful.My friend and I would not hesitate to recommend the experience to others.
Edith B, September 2010: The accommodation at Keble College was excellent.
MR. DOMINICK M, September 2010: Great service, helpfulness of the staff exceeded the expectations and the food was of the quality as found in the better restaurants.
Overall I was very sattisfied.
Lesley M, September 2010: The room was clean, comfortable and perfectly acceptable. The beauty of staying at Keeble is more to do with the wonderful historic setting and lovely architecture of the college and the very convenient setting within easy walking distance of the centre of Oxford.
Thank you for for a lovely stay - my second in as many months!
John D, September 2010: We had a wonderful experience staying for two nights at Keble College. The highlights were having the 24 porter for late checkin, internet accessiblity in the rooms, amazing surroundings, and a breakfast experience that we will remember for years to come.
Bridget A, September 2010: In the bathroom there was mildew in the shower and the grouting in between the tiles wasn't a clean as it could be. I was in room 3700 and there was a drawer knob missing and one of the shelf supports was also missing from the top shelf of the bookcase. These are things that I feel the room maid should be reporting and maintenance fixing. Other than this I thought the rooms were of a high quality and we had an excellent view of the quad. We had an evening meal and breakfast in the Hall and I thought the quality of service and standard of food was excellent.
STEVE H, September 2010: A very comfortable room, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. We had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend this experience to others. I would definitely consider a stay in a college for any future visits to Oxford.
Dr.Birgit H, September 2010: I enjoyed my stay very much. The room with view to the Liddon quad was quiet. A totally positive experience.
GAIA C, September 2010: The college was wonderful and very particular
Sarah M, August 2010: Very good accommodation and really enjoyed staying in such beautiful surroundings. Also greatly appreciated my request to put my room and my son's close together being fulfilled - we had rooms opposite - which many hotels have failed to achieve in the past, but you had no trouble with.
We had a wonderful time at Keble and in Oxford generally and would recommend a stay at your college to others.
Ilsedore K, August 2010: It was a nice stay at Keble College - not far from Oxford town center in a quiet area and a beautiful place! One day I will come back :-),
Leow Seow W, August 2010: The bathroom has the basic necessity but very spacious compare to other places of England.
We love the breakfast and the wonderful experience dinning in the hall.
Very scenic views from our room as we have a good view of the beautiful college
Julie M, August 2010: I would choose to stay in the university again when visiting Oxford
The value for monoey was brilliant and having breakfast in the hall
was an experience. The college was peacefull during the night which quite often you don't get in a hotel. The staff in the lodge were helpful.
Overall an enjoyable stay.
Mary M, August 2010: The staff in the lodge were excellent, patiently answering a whole lot of questions. The housekeeping staff were also excellent, finding me more hangers and a blanket on request. The serving staff in the hall were very good too. The outlook from the room was lovely and the internet, fridge and kettle very welcome. At 40 pounds per night (including cooked breakfast) this was outstanding value!
Greg F, August 2010: The only downside of our visit was the rather Spartan environment of the bedroom, particularly the bed, which was very ordinary!!!! The atmosphere was excellent.
Ellie W, August 2010: We were overawed by the college buildings and grounds - perfect surroundings and an idyllic stay. People - especially Janet Betts (Bursar of Keble) - could not have been more helpful!
Ken G, August 2010: Character beats hotels by a country mile. A TV in a common room might have been nice to watch University Challenge... otherwise no criticism at all. Many thanks to the staff,
Linda J, August 2010: lovely view of the quad and to be in the heart of it all.
Cathy W, August 2010: We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in College and are looking forward to coming back next year.
stephen B, August 2010: This was the first time we have visited Oxford. With booking an overnight stay at Keble we felt it enhanced what was a very good short break, all the family enjoyed the experience.
Kristine Y, August 2010: A wonderful and unique way to experience oxford. The dining hall is awesome.
Ian G P, August 2010: Excellent stay, look forward to visiting again in the future
Pauline T, August 2010: Our stay at Keble is a wonderful experience and beyond comparison with stay at hotels or average bed & breakfast. The environment of the College is calm and peaceful and the location of Keble is just far from the madding crowd. The breakfast at the dining hall is a unique experience and in fact the standard of food excels that of hotels and bed & breakfast that we stayed in UK in this trip. It would be wonderful if guests be given a complimentary tour in other parts of the College such as the library. That will be really impressive!
Ian O, August 2010: Enjoyable visit. Helpful and friendly staff
Hendrike B, August 2010: Staying in a college in Oxford was a great experience and absolutly worth the money! Keble college is a beautiful college with an especially nice dining hall. Just remember to bring a cable for internet if you do not want to purchase one for 5 L.
Mrs S S, August 2010: First class service throughout. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Oxford and staying in this wonderful college was amazing. Hope to visit again and will certainly use your website. Thank you for a brilliant experience.
Celine H, August 2010: Dining room experience wonderful.
Diner could be served later than 6:30pm
rachael C, August 2010: I was very pleasantly surprised and it made my stay in Oxford easy and enjoyable. Great to share the dining hall breakfast experience with other guests. I would definitely use the service again.
David S, August 2010: A party of 12 of us stayed at Keble college and thought the whole experience was excellent. The breakfast was really good as well.
Thank-you for helping to make an excellent weekend.
The only slight issue I would say is that the rooms were maybe £5 to high in price but the location was excellent.
I would look to stay there again
maryanne G, August 2010: We enjoyed the experience very much. Keble was lovely and we enjoyed our breakfasts in the huge dining hall. Everyone was polite and courteous. The only drawback was that the first room assigned to us on the fourth floor had no elevator, and my husband has heart problems. The staff quickly and efficiently changed the accommodation for us, for which we were grateful. We would definitely stay again.
Nobuko S, August 2010: Thank you very much for your service. I had a wonderful time.
maureen G, August 2010: A very different but enjoyable experience. Would have preferred a room overlooking one of the quads but my room was quite pleasant. Breakfast was disappointing. My meal was cold (possibly because I was sitting near the open door) and overcooked. At the table we were rather cramped for space. However, I would certainly return for another stay and hopefully dinner will be available.
Prof. Soon-Thiam K, August 2010: The Oxford experience is definitely something that people should try. I stayed at Keble College and it is great to be there. I would definitely go there again.
Thomas K, August 2010: Everyone at Keble was very helpful and extremely pleasant. I will definitely recommend booking rooms through University Rooms.com to anyone I know who will be traveling to Oxford. We had an excellent experience all around.
Sarah C, August 2010: Thanks for a lovely stay. My room had just been refurbished so everything was new. A helpful student helped show me to my room which was on the main quad, looking out on to a garden. Really nice to be in Oxford again and will definitely come back if i need a b&b again.
John B, August 2010: The room needed a lick of paint as it was peeling in places but it was very clean and spacious so that made up for it.
Overall very pleased with the experience
luigi S, August 2010: thank you for a fantastic and unique experience - can't wait to come back!
John H, August 2010: We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend in the summer hols and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The pictures on the website accurately reflect the reality - comfortable and clean rooms, obviously not over luxurious given what they are. Beds were basic but comfortable and rooms adequately furnished and providing all you need. The porter was very efficient and helpful on arrival and subsequently, directing me to the nearest park & drive (essential unless you are prepared to pay an arm and leg for parking). Breakfast in the hall was a unique experience - 'just like Hogwarts' to quote my younger daughter. Waiting staff very efficient and polite and self service food very good. Communal tables like a school or college but very sociable and an opportunity to chat with fellow guests. Staying inside college was great, with views of the beautiful Chapel and other buildings from the window. Value for money excellent - you'd struggle to find anywhere comparable in central Oxford. All in all a great experience which we would do again.
Mrs Christina Goeth S, August 2010: It was a special experience to stay in a place like Keble College! We enjoyed it very much, a promising start in our holidays in England.
If we once some back to Oxford we will choose again a college to stay.
Especially liked the breakfast in the hall, the courts, the atmosphere, the bar. It would have been interestig to hear more about the college and its parts while staying there (e.g. when arriving).
Brenda C, August 2010: Excellent staff. We will recommend this service.
Maria S, August 2010: It was a very enjoyable experience, especially the excellent breakfast in the magnificent Victorian dining hall. The staff were very friendly and helpful, both at the lodge and in the hall. When the lamp in our bathroom broke down, it was fixed immediately. The city centre is within reasonable walking distance. We'd like to come back one day.
Tim R, August 2010: The overall experience was outstanding. The price of £110 for a double room was rather high.
Leo van der W, August 2010: A great stay in a college which was well located in the city centre of Oxford, but still a tranquil point where you can relax. Rooms are simple, but the dining hall was magnificent. We will stay here again surely when we are back in oxford.
DIANA B, August 2010: Beautiful view from our room over the front quad. Rooms were light and spacious. Bed a bit lumpy, but apart from that it was absolutely perfect! Excellent value for money. Will definitely return.
Mrs N, August 2010: I had to book 3 single rooms on Fri 30 Jul, and the family rooms for Sat 31 as the family rooms were already taken for the Fri. We had a most enjoyable weeked and would recommend Keble B+B to familly and friends. Thank you.
N M, August 2010: Sorry can't remember room number. Would recommend Keble B+B to friends and family, very enjoyable experience, thank you. The staff in the 'Porters Lodge' were very helpful.
Marion M, August 2010: Very good location and premicies. Good service.
Dr. Krista K, August 2010: I very much enjoyed my stay at Kebel and found the front desk staff to be exceptional. Will definitely stay again the next time I'm in Oxford.
J.C.Wolters, August 2010: great to have breakfast in the great hall and the internet connection in the room is a definitive advantage.
Paul S, August 2010: I could not have wished to stay in a nicer place ... would rate highly.
Mr Andrew B, August 2010: Perfect location, being less than 5 minute walk to all centre sites like the Bodlean Library, Radcliffe Camera, real ale pubs etc. Breakfast service was a bit hit and miss and seemed to be a little rushed. But apart from that, will definately use this college again. Just remember to request a quad view room as if you don't, you may be looking at the modern buildings at the rear!
Jennifer T, July 2010: Excellent value for money, really pleasant stay, staff were very friendly and helpful
Paul M, July 2010: A 'good value' place to stay in Oxford. Beautiful setting with courteous and efficient staff
Sarah L E, July 2010: Good value for money
staff very friendly and helpful
only problem was that the rooms were hot and stuffy - an electric fan would have helped
Mrs R L S, July 2010: Historical and interesting place to stay with warm and helpful people. Excellent.
Dr. Ruth S, July 2010: The ambience of Keble College did not disappoint me. The sorroundings and the chapel are magnifiscent. The room was just average. I would rate the accomodation as basic. The sheets were clean . The walls of the room showed wear and tear. I did not have breakfast so am unable to rate it.
Sarah R, July 2010: A great experience. A warm welcome from the lodge and a very comfortable stay.
Mrs Jean B, July 2010: Clearly University rooms will be a little care worn, however, everything I needed was provided for and Keeble buiding and grounds are beautiful. Breakfast in The Great Hall was a fun experience with the chance to meet many lovely and interesting people. Overall I had a good experience and would seek to do this again.
LYNN A, July 2010: Very small room, which was quite cramped and hot for 2 people. Ok for 1. However, bathroom was nice and well equipped and view from both more than made up for the fairly spartan accommodation, Keble College itself was lovely and the grounds, bar and lovely Grand Hall and chapel much enjoyed.
Pablo G, July 2010: Very good experience.
Mrs Val Z, July 2010: My friend (above) did the booking, so I can't really comment on the use of the website. The whole Keble experience was very agreeable and I would certainly hope to return for another weekend in the wonderful city of Oxford.
Alison T, July 2010: I enjoyed my stay at Keble very much - beautiful surroundings and a good standard of accommodation and service. Just one comment regarding noise - a constant thrumming (some kind of generator?) throughout the night.
Mary-Lou R, July 2010: Staying at Keble was a delightful experience.
Mrs Val Z, July 2010: Positive: The overall experience of staying in hall was very enjoyable. The staff was helpful. The room space was excellent.
Negative: The matress was somewhat broken down and uncomfortable. the loo flush was somewhat inadequate.
Comment: It would have been nice to have a radio in the room.
The towels were changed each day in spite of my not leaving them on the floor. the soap was also renewed each day - not necessary; one does not use a whole tablet each day.
Baldicchi M, July 2010: Staying at Keble has been a great experience for us. The room was simple but clean, the breakfast room was stunnig and there was a lot of choice. The central position of the College made the visit of Oxford very easy.
Jean-Marc T, July 2010: Friendly staff at the porters' lodge, great rooms (booked a double ensuite and a standard single), great breakfast, all of this in a beautiful college!
Rachel D, July 2010: Absolutley brilliant! Everyone in the party wants to go back! Can't believe such a brilliant breakfast, too - can't fault it!
Mike H, July 2010: Would definitely book again
Henri P, July 2010: I thank you for making our CORESTA Seniors such a successful, enjoyable affair. The 'University Experience', our theme for the reunion, was made real by staying at Keble. Every one of our group was full of praise for the arrangements and experience you provided. I thoroughly recommend your B & B to all serious visitors to Oxford and especially to those who have never had the opportunity to live in College.
W. F, July 2010: Porters in the lodge deserve special praise for their charming interpersonal skills, highly efficient organisation and intuitive helpfulness at all times - thank you!
Roland C, July 2010: The staff in the Porter's Office at Keble were particularly helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
Robert W, July 2010: Sunday breakfast service much better than Monday (more proactive!)
Lynne M, July 2010: We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will certainly stay with you again if we visit Oxford. We appreciated the friendly and helpful advice that Caroline, the gardener gave us about visiting nearby places. The grounds of the college are really beautiful (We loved our view from our room) and we would certainly encourage our friends here is Australia to stay at Keble when visiting the UK.
Francis M, July 2010: Room clean but slightly shabby - but what do you expect from a student room?
Breakfast not quite as nice as I'd expected, but adequate.
What a treat to stay in an another Oxford college - pity mine was booked!
S H, July 2010: Very impressed but bathrooms could do with refurbishment
Pam T, July 2010: Our visit was very enjoyable but black out blinds at the room windows would be a good idea as the light is very bright very early!
Nicholas H, July 2010: Almost unbelievably good in every way, excellent accommodation and breakfast, kind and helpful staff everywhere from the porters lodge to the dining hall, and a truly impressive but relaxed and friendly ambience. We shall certainly hope to come again
Martin M, July 2010: Beautiful venue and great value for money.
Dr Chris J, July 2010: I enjoyed the stay - my first in Keble since 1985! The room was rather basic, but adequate - and everything else excellent - so good overall vfm. I hope to use your service again soon.
Babette W, July 2010: We had a great time at Keble College and are very thankful for the oppotunity at staying there. A wonderful experience!
A comment on breakfast: great surrounding, offering and service! An offering of cheese would be great.
Mrs Sheila M, July 2010: We had a wonderful visit to Oxford and our stay at Keeble made it even more special. The porters were extremely helpful in storing our luggage when we arrived early and also helping with phone calls to restaurants etc. The whole experience was most enjoyable and will be recommending it to friends.
Piera G, July 2010: The overall experience was great. The breakfast was a bit of a muddle due to the number of people (there was a conference on). We kept running out of coffee, toast etc It really needed someone to meet and greet at the entrance to explain the procedure. Room was fine but bathroom could do with a bit of a refresh/up date which you probably know.
Jeremy W, July 2010: very nice experience - gorgeous place to stay, friendly and nice service.
One significant reservation: 5£ for the requisite wire to access internet is ridiculous. A majority of accommodation options at this price range offer internet for free, and the material in 3ft of cat5 cable is literally pennies.
Did not have breakfast (hence 'average' since no 'not applicable' option exists)
Elizabeth C, July 2010: I really enjoyed my stay in Keble. I was very pleased to get a change from a room on the road side to one overlooking the quad. There were students having a party across the quad but it it didn't detract too much from the experience of being there.
Allan R, June 2010: I was already booked to spend 2 days at Keble for their pre1960 Gaudy. They considerately kept me in the same room, and were helpful in all respects.
Ali Rogers and Emma N, April 2010: The rooms are excellent value for money. The college is beautiful and ideally located near to town. Breakfast in the dining hall is worth it in itself. Don't go expecting all the bells and whistles of a five star hotel though. If you are after the experience of staying in an Oxford college then Keble is the ideal choice.
Laura H, April 2010: A very enjoyable and comfortable stay and the people working in the Porters office were lovely. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.
Mark A, April 2010: We really enjoyed our stay at Keble College. I apprectiated very much your efforts to ensure that our rooms were adjacent, and found all the staff to be very helpful and interested in making our stay pleasant. The location of the college is great for exploring central Oxford and the museums. We all enjoyed the peaceful setting and loved (especially the kids) eating in the hall (which could very easily have been used as the setting for the great hall at Hogwarts!). The rooms themselves are fairly basic, but this is made clear in all the information and so was not a surprise to us. I will definitely recommend staying at Keble to friends.
Mrs Kathryn R, April 2010: A wonderful experience. Our stay enabled my husband,an ex student of Keble, to take a stroll down "memory lane". Though not plush 4* accommodation, the rooms are very warm and comfy with en suite facilities. Breakfasts were good and what a fantstic place to eat in the huge dining hall! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to spend time there. Keble is a very good base to sample all that Oxford has to offer.
Rusu T, April 2010: The two days we spend in Keble College were wonderful. We were delighted both me and my daughter. For her it was like being in a story world and the in the mean time it was an experience that made her think about how University can be. As concerning the leaving conditions everything was in order (no difference of the facilities offered by a traditional b&b). The university feeling, the security in the accommodation and the worm support of the staff made our experience much better that the traditional b&b. We plan to come again to Keble College and to use universityrooms.co.uk in order to visit also other UK places.
Timothy B, March 2010: A hassle-free opportunity to stay in the centre of Oxford. It is hard to imagine anyone wanting to go to a hotel when rooms inside real colleges are available. A new room with a view of olde buildings was worth every penny. Many Thanks.
Mrs Angelina C, March 2010: My daughter and I stayed at Keble whilst in Oxford for the Sunday Times Literary Festival. It was an enjoyable experience from start to finish. The college is beautiful, the rooms were excellent and it the booking process etc was very simple. We look forward to staying at Keble next year.
Karen L, March 2010: The B&B experience at Keble College exceeded my expectations. The room was clean and comfortable, and with just two sharing facilities, it felt like an en-suite. The college is beautiful, and it was a real treat to have breakfast in the hall. It was a tiny, fascinating look into the Oxford student life. Thanks for letting the general public take part. I will certainly stay here again, whenever I have a chance to visit Oxford.
Gemma B, March 2010: Was a wonderful experience! All the staff were so lovely and even though it was a freezing time of year, it was so so beautiful. Rooms were great, better than we could have imagined. Can't wait to return one day. If only it wasn't a 24 hr flight away!
Beth C, March 2010: We had a lovely time and would definitely return to stay at Oxford Rooms and recommend you to others. We did comment that having a radio in the room would have added to the experience but apart from that there wasn't much we could fault. We also had our evening meal in the dining hall which was also wonderful.
Many thanks for our stay.
Annette Z, March 2010: I enjoyed my stay very much. It's a wonderful experience to have breakfast in the magnificent hall!
Hugh B, March 2010: I was extremely impressed with all the booking process the organisation the facilities and the hospitality and helpfulness of the Keeble College staff. I have been promoting the the service to everyone I know.
Edward D B, March 2010: Lovely place, very enjoyable experience - magnificent dining hall!
paul R, March 2010: A fantastic experience and an economical stay. Being in the heart of Oxford allowed us to feel at home rather than a visitor.
Thoroughly recommend to any traveler
Colin S, March 2010: Would stay at Keble again and again - an incredible experience; like stepping back in time, in comfort ;-)
John M, February 2010: Our rooms were in the new wing at Keble College so we were spoiled! They were clean and quiet. The porter's lodge answered all our questions and were very helpful Our visit was most enjoyable and we hope to return in the future.
John R, February 2010: We had a most enjoyable weekend. I had no idea (as an Emmanuel man) that Oxford has almost as much to offer as Cambridge. City bus tour especially helpful. Dinner in hall was amusing (we could chat to other residents) and particularly good value, with bottle of wine included. We have been recommending these weekends to our friends. Thank you,
John & Caroline
Paul T, February 2010: A special place to stay for a weekend visit. thanks
DeAnn M, February 2010: It would have been really nice to have a place to meet/relax with others on campus. We checked out the bar but it either wasn't open or didn't seem comfortable. Great otherwise. Will definitely book again.
Robert C, February 2010: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The room was clean and comfortable. Being in the middle of the capus had an atmosphere we would not have been able to experience in a hotel. In addition, the location was within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants. The only downside was the lack of parking.
Dr Amani B, October 2009: We very much enjoyed our stay at Keble College. I recommend it to anyone who wants a brief experience of college life.
Gunar K, October 2009: The room was okay for the price, but the breakfast in the dining hall an experience!
Karin G, September 2009: Thank you for a stay in historical surroundings with nice service and nice people!
Pia L, September 2009: Perfect - I would like to come back with my family
Ulla V, September 2009: Everything was fine. The bed was very comfortable and I slept very well despite some noise coming from the street.
Mrs.Cynthia B, September 2009: 8 ladies came on my booking, we all experienced a wonderful 3 day visit
to Keble university. Your staff in the lodge were so helpful and knew all
the answers to the questions we asked. We have recommended the holiday to so many people! How lucky you are to be working in Oxford.
Catherine J, September 2009: My only complaint on the whole trip was that I don't like soft-cooked eggs and couldn't get a full fry-up with hard-cooked eggs. On the other hand, if that's the only thing wrong, life's pretty good!
In general, we had a great time, the facilities were super, and the lodge staff very helpful. I would definitely come again. The students didn't seem to mind us, and we enjoyed eating brekkie with some of the mothers down for the exams. Excellent experience overall. Thanks.
vanessa f. L, September 2009: Thank you for your hospitality, your service is always very consistent and we look forward to spending time at Keble College in the very near future.
Laura H, September 2009: Recently renovated -- Good. More or less up to the standard of a modern hotel, except for the lack of a television (which I did not want anyway). However, I don't know how you will be able to maintain this level of quality after a few years of intensive student usage.
The lighting is only just sufficient.
Jonathan L, September 2009: Great stay, beautiful college, fantastic having breakfast in the magnificent great hall.
Sharman M, August 2009: A wonderful experience. Daily housekeeping with refreshed toiletries was a pleasant surprise. A malfunction of the shower was quickly seen to by a cheerful worker. My one suggestion would be to upgrade the toilet paper, which was a bit harsh. The cooked breakfast was a treat, and the two dinners I had in hall were as good as any mid range restaurant. The wine with dinner plus the bar drinks were at student prices, another treat.
The proximity to the centre of town was marvellous. I never had to walk more than 15 minutes to get anywhere interesting, and as a solo female traveller I felt safe, even at night walking back after concerts.
The whole atmosphere of the college, with its beauty, history and quiet, gives it that indefinable added extra with which an ordinary hotel or B&B cannot compete.
My stay was memorable. I would definitely come again and will recommend it to others.
Christopher B, August 2009: Superb. 2nd time at Keble and will definitely be coming back. Rooms nice and clean (even basic room). Wonderful staff and service is 2nd none.
Plus the college grounds are fantastic.
Mrs Margaret H, August 2009: Having stayed in Keble College last year when our rooms overlooked the Hayward Quad student bar, I asked if it would be possible to have rooms this year overlooking the quad itself. Having requested this, we were really delighted to find on our day of arrival that our room request had been read and our rooms did look out over the beautiful quad. This made our stay this year even better - thank you so very much. We seemed to be the only two rooms being used when we were there and to have a bathroom each, was a real bonus. Thank you again - I would not hesitate to recommend your service, its brilliant!
Fay W, August 2009: It was lovely to stay in Keeble and everything was exactly as described. The staff at the Porter's Lodge were very courteous and efficient and we will certainly repeat the experience. Thank you to all concerned.
Mr Stephen J, August 2009: Fantastic building (Keble College) made an otherwise pleasant experience really memorable.
Mary W, August 2009: I had a wonderfull stay at Keble College and would recomend the whole experience to anyone. I shall be booking all future visits through University Rooms.
Harriet M, August 2009: Keble College is a beautiful space, albeit a different one by Oxford standards, and I loved looking out the window in the morning and evening. The suite fit our family needs perfectly and allowed our local friends to stop by our rooms, sit and talk. That would have been difficult had we opted instead for an extra bed fit into a hotel room, for the same price. The porters were helpful and the breakfast in hall was an added treat--I appreciated the wide selection of cold foods and the experience of dining in an Oxford college hall.
James H, August 2009: Was very good - the Porter was extremely helpful. Breakfast service was also outstanding. Polite, helpful and generally an enjoyable experience.
kate S, August 2009: I was extremely impressed with my visit and will be recommending to one and all.
Mr T, August 2009: Attended Wedding of my son & daughter-in-law and the whole experience was superb and the standard of service first class. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and a special mention of Gerard the Hall Manager who was extremely co-operative. Many thanks
Alan T, August 2009: We enjoyed our stay at the university very much . Thank you to all the personal who were always very pleasant and helpful
Mrs Kathleen M, August 2009: Keble College was an excellent location for our stay in Oxford to attend Graduation. A very peaceful setting and within walking distance of a good variety of restaurants and attractions. Breakfast in the great hall was a wonderful experience and sitting in the beautiful grounds was really relaxing. Our room was very comfortable, tidied, and provided with clean towels every day. It was very quiet at night so we were able to enjoy a good restful sleep.
Roger E, August 2009: Very comfortable and enjoyable. Wonderful to stay in the College and enjoy the beautiful surrounds (including the Chapel). Breakfast was excellent. Staff at the Porter's Lodge were obliging and very helpful.
annette E, August 2009: very friendly and helpful staff, made me feel at home.
Suzanne W, July 2009: All good value for money when compared with usual price range in the UK.
Oriel M, July 2009: very positive experience, in excellent surroundings, and I would return
Peter D, July 2009: Excellent service and experience overall. Thank you to all those involved.
Sadly the leaving time was a bit early. An hour later might be better after a busy evening! But this is a comparatively small point.
Susan M, July 2009: All-over excellent! Great value for money, everyone most helpful, college beautiful and location very convenient. Only wish I could have stayed longer.
Estelle A, July 2009: It was my first time at Oxford with my mother and it was a chance to sleep in this beautiful Keble College.
The room was better than clean and the service was excellent.
I will come back again.
Colin B, July 2009: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will recommend the experience to our family and friends.
Christiane S, July 2009: great experience. nice staff, room easy but nice, internet access included. if coming back to Oxford I will certainly stay there again.
David P, July 2009: First time I have stayed in Oxford and I had a very pleasant stay. Grounds and breakfast hall in particular were very impressive. Thank you.
Linda R, July 2009: We really enjoyed our time at Keble and owuld recommend it to others.
marcus T, July 2009: I enjoyed my stay at Keeble. I found the staff to be very helpful. I will highly recommend this great experience to people who wish to visit Oxford.
Matthew W, July 2009: Very good service and very clean and quiet. Would definitely use again.
Monica A, July 2009: Glorious views over quad from very comfortable room. Tranquil ambience despite being short walk from hustle of city centre. Enjoyed breakfast in gothic hall. Great fun.
GRAEME S, July 2009: tremendous experience i look forward to my next visit
Margret T, June 2009: I have spent many nights at Keble between mid-May and the end of June and I am very sorry that this time is coming to an end. Everybody and everything has been just very special. The porters, the conference manager, the booking office, everyone has been incredibly helpful and accommodating, making room 3514 my home for many weeks. Liddon Quad is beautiful, the view magnificent. The rooms are spacious, very clean with great working and storage facilities for a longer stay. The breakfast is a daily experience, starting with a warm welcome by the friendly staff; the hall is a landmark, and the guests are exceptional. True to the reputation of this leading university town, many a day have started with a fine early morning conversation. Living among students made me want to be a student again. A heartfelt thank you to all who made it a memorable stay.
Alfredo E, June 2009: Very enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend the experience.
Patricia B, June 2009: Can recommend the experience. Extremely helpful staff, beautiful surroundings and peaceful location enabling enjoyment of historical building
Albert W, June 2009: A wonderful place to stay!
Stephen R, June 2009: A most enjoyable experience. The staff were very polite and helpful. The room was simple but comfortable.

Bart C, June 2009: Fantastic view from my window. Very friendly staff at breakfast & good food. Wonderful experience!
Julia M S, June 2009: The porter was particularly welcoming and helpful. Breakfast staff too very helpful. Good food. Enjoyable stay. Room excellent. Felt staff put themselves out to make the stay an excellent experience. Could perhaps have done without knock on the door at 9.30 reminding me I had to vacate by 10am. But didnt detract from the excellent experience. Would definitely stay again.
Luis P, June 2009: I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere and architecture of the college and the beauty of the gardens.
Miodrag F, June 2009: Excellent service!
Chris D, May 2009: University rooms is a valuable resource for Oxford city visitors, and not widely known. Rooms and values can be counted on to be excellent, if not exactly deluxe, but seem to be a much better alternative for the price to what is available elsewhere in the city. Thank you.
JULIE C, May 2009: I was very comfortable and happy at Keble College and will recommend this facility to others. My room was three times the size of the one in my London hotel, with much better water pressure in the shower to boot!
Hannah N, May 2009: fantastic room with a great bathroom ensuite and very comfortable bed. very easy to book over the internet and easy to check in at porter's lodge. i will certainly recommend it to anyone else looking to stay in oxford.
Kim B, May 2009: Excellent two nights - will hopefully be back in June!
Milton M, May 2009: Great spacious room with bathroom and a lovely view over the quad. Nice furnishings too, a friendly and helpful Porter, and fantastic breakfast. Would certainly come again.
Colleen S, May 2009: Good facilities specially regarding use of washer and dryer. Please give information on where and how to find the common room so that one can at the end of the day be able to watch the idiot box.
A very good experience friendly and helpful staff at the porters lodge.
Tanguy P, May 2009: More than I expected! What can I say, everyone was very helpful, the atmosphere was friendly and pleasant, and the standard of service was of high quality. I enjoyed every moment of my stay! I surely will recommend your services. Merci encore.
David B, April 2009: Very efficient and would do it again
JacquiLea, April 2009: As described in the advertised info received before we booked, our rooms were somewhat basic and homely but the overall experience was so unique it carried us through and we will certainly visit again!
Bernard S, April 2009: Thank you to all the staff for their excellent hospitality.
Brian M, April 2009: Really nice visit. All staff very helpful, lovely surroundings. A bit noisy, but otherwise really excellent.
Sarah K. D, April 2009: Had two rooms. The refurbished room was obviously superior. Did a great job renovating. The Porter's were extremely helpful and professional. It was a beautiful and special place to stay. The staff at Breakfast were also helpful and professional. Overall, a unique and wonderful experience. Thank you.
Jacek C, April 2009: The place is incredibly beautiful, full of mystery and a unique atmosphere.
John M, April 2009: Very pleasant room made my stay most enjoyable

Outstanding service all around
Mark R, March 2009: Excellent experience overall. I am most grateful to Keble College for permitting this visit during term.
Aaron C, March 2009: Very enjoyable stay.
Athinoula L. P, January 2009: All were excellent. I had very short time to look around the college but I was lucky to meet accidentally the garden keeper (a very polite lady) who explained to me briefly many things about the college and she also brought me into the chapel. It was wonderful. Because of this positive experience I bought a booklet to read more about Kelbe college and a book about Oxford.
Catherine H, January 2009: staff very helpful and pleasant, fantastic value for central B & B
Christine R, October 2008: Thankyou for a very comfortable and enjoyable experience - a great weekend - will come again.
Liz Rushworth, September 2008: We were most impressed with the quality of service at both breakfasts and the evening meal. And what a place to dine!! The staff were all pleasant and courteous. Very atmospheric and beautiful buildings - The Chapel is magnificent and also well cared for surroundings and gardens. We would love to stay again and Keeble is being included. Highly recommendable. Thank you!
Evelyne S, September 2008: We had a lovely stay, the venue is just amazing, especially the breakfast room. We'll definitely recommend it to our friends.
Mrs EVELYN J H, September 2008: Staying at Keble College amongst all that history was a fantastic experience! Everything was even better than we had expected. Accommodation was good, staff were very helpful and we met some interesting people during our stay. Would recommend this to anyone!!
Sally R, September 2008: We had a wonderful experience staying at Keble College. The quads and surroundings were amazing and gave us a good taste of college life at Oxford University. Being able to eat breakfast in the dining hall was definitely a highlight.
Helen W, September 2008: Very comfortable stay. Only sorry it was only a quick overnight stop. Will recommend to friends needing accommodation in Oxford, and hope to be back ourselves.
Stephen H, September 2008: My stay was a very positive experience and I certainly hope to return to use your service
Mark F, September 2008: The outstanding memory will be of the wonderful location, setting, architecture etc. The stay was largely average to good but the location and ambience are outstanding.
emma G, September 2008: i had an absolutely lovely stay thanks. the staff in the lodge were extremely helpfull. the only thing i would suggest is a later checkout time. Also the water pressure was very weak. absolutely no complaints, just suggestions, i would definitely recommend you to friends.
Suneil S, September 2008: Thank you for having me! Porters were very friendly and helpful!
James P, September 2008: We were impressed with our stay at Keble from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! Friendly staff, great College ground, breakfast in the dining hall was fantastic, and the rooms clean and comfortable. Very impressed, thanks very much.
Anne T, September 2008: The welcome we received in the Porters office was more than expected and very good level of local information and tourist information from
the staff on duty. Will definitely recommend and hope to return to Keble college. Thank you.
R S H, September 2008: Thank you, really enjoyed the experience.
We will come again.
Garvey M A, September 2008: Spectacular rooms overlooking Liddon Quad and very friendly staff - excellent!
David B, September 2008: A great place to stay - I will certainly recommend to others.
Mrs C M W, September 2008: all excellent
Julian R, September 2008: I would recommend this option to anyone visiting Oxford for a unique B&B experience.
John K, September 2008: Just what we wanted - a most enjoyable stay
Vanessa L, September 2008: My partner is suggesting larger portions and more variety in the hot course served at breakfast. Our stay was very pleasant and your reception staff were very friendly and willing to help us.
GOODWIN K, September 2008: Excellent service at reception and overall was definitely the high-spot of the stay in England for the two visiting students. We had already stayed in a University hall of residence before but Keble was much better.
Caroline T, September 2008: I enjoyed been in the college. the staff is very helpful and kind, has a lot of patience.
The buildings are amazing.
Thanks for everything.
Sveinn G, September 2008: Excellent experience and good value. Internet connection was very good. Room was full of character and although not a top standard it somehow didn't matter at all.
Mrs Linda B, September 2008: Both myself and my sister enjoyed our experience all the staff go out of their way to make guests feel at home
Joanna B, August 2008: very friendly college staff. I will definitely stay at Keble again.
Maureen Mei-Ling W, August 2008: This is a very unique and valuable experience. I would definitely suggest my friends to try. The only suggestion I would like to make is that the choice of colleges is very limited. Please consider adding more colleges on the list.
LYNETTE C, August 2008: Great location and I would paas this accom on to friends thinking of staying in Oxford. Thanks!
Michael C, August 2008: lovely setting, comfortable room

Nisavanh, August 2008: Really enjoyed my stay there and will definitely come back here !
Linda E, August 2008: We had a very enjoyable weekend at the college. I've stayed in student accomodation many times and I always think it repesents good value for money. i.e. a clean bed to sleep in and a good cooked breakfast.
Pauline C, August 2008: I would happily recommend this accommodation to my friends.
Elisabet Vilahur Garcia, August 2008: I love the place, and I'll come back and recomend it.
John Paul M, July 2008: Brilliant - I'd thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Not only is it great value accomodation in the centre of Oxford, but you really capture the Oxford spirit this way.
Lusine M, July 2008: The staff at Kebble is very pleasant.
Mahalah N, July 2008: Beautiful view of the court yard!
Philip S, July 2008: Overall happy with the service, are there family rooms as I might bring my wife and two children next year?
Claire E, July 2008: Really enjoyed stay. Great breakfast! Will def stay again.
Dr. Helen H. C, July 2008: The staff at the porter's lodge was most helpful in sharing information to answer our many questions, especially Jason who is no longer there and the one female that was so charming and forthright in searching for what we needed.
Caroline W, July 2008: The staff in the porters lodge were particularly helpful and friendly.
Robin F, July 2008: Excellent service, the porters were unfailingly helpful, the food was ok bearing in mind the large numbers, the room clean, generally wonderful, and see you next year!....
Peggy D. Q, July 2008: It was wonderful. Staying in one of the Oxford University Colleges is the best of the best. Kebel was the best.
Lea K, July 2008: it was a wonderful experience to stay in one of oxford's colleges. a fantastic idea for all kinds of visitors! a real joy!
Christa K, July 2008: Very lovely college and great experience. The newly renovated rooms in the old tract are obviously nicer than the ones in the new tract. Especially as they have a fridge, look nicer and have a nicer, non-"flooding" bathroom.
Sharon H, July 2008: Very enjoyable stay, only wish we could have stayed longer!
Zhenyu H, July 2008: To live in the Oxford university gives me a very good feeling.
Dawn P, July 2008: Fantastic staff. Great rooms. Thanks!! =)
Mrs Vivien R, July 2008: I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thank you
gerard T, July 2008: VERY NICE STAY, STAFF SO FRIENDLY, GOD BLESS, GERRY, MAURA.
Mary-Anne P, July 2008: This is the second time I have stayed at Keeble. It was excellent.
Carl P, July 2008: Porters were very helpful indeed, but I felt the staff at breakfast could have been more proactive, rather than standing around waiting to be asked things. All in all an enjoyable experience.
Tim H, July 2008: Will definitely use this service again - no complaints at all!
Seyed Alireza Vousough H, July 2008: Very beautiful buildings. Fantastic breakfast hall! A uinque and unexpected experience for me! I'll recommend it to all my friends who are planning to visit in Oxford.
Lissa P, July 2008: I was very grateful for the opportunity to stay at Keble--especially as I was doing research at the Bodleian. As a college room, it was terrific and I'd stay again. I would, however, have been grateful for wireless internet access.
Dr. Frances W, July 2008: The room was very comfortable. The staff in the front office were all extremely helpful. My only minor complaint was with breakfast - I felt the staff were trying to rush us out - hovering around and grabbing plates before one was finished eating. We were having an extemely pleasant chat with another guest over breakfast and felt we had to keep fending off the wait staff if we wanted to actually get to eat our breakfast. However, this small point aside, we greatly enjoyed our visit to Keeble.
Georgia M, July 2008: that was a delight to stay at your College- Keble
John C, July 2008: Very good location for seeing most of Oxford, people pleasant and helpful.
Wendy R, July 2008: We really enjoyed our visit. The college and it's gardens are beautiful and eating in the dining hall was a great experience. A little disappointed we weren't on one of the older quadrangles but understand that is just a case of availability. The room was clean and adequate if a little noisy as our neighbours were in and out a lot and we were also near the entrance door to the floor and the stairs. Also, we had less choice during breakfast the 2nd day, only white toast available and no danishes left, coffee was also cold, having a different choice of eggs (ie scrambled) would have meant I would have had the cooked breakfast - just little things which can make a big difference. I would definately use UniversityRooms again. Many thanks
Viswanath S, July 2008: I came for my Dughter Divya's wedding held at the Keble Chapel on 12th July. With most of wedding guests housed in Keble it was very convienent & good. Rooms were good for the price & value for money. Breakfast was very good. Keble staff were friendly.
Would be good for keble staff to check out the condition of rooms before guests occupy. For example our oom could not be locked from inside & keble staff could not fix it because they could not get someone to repair for 2 days.Otherwise great. We will certainly keep Keble as a 1st Option for stay next ound. Thank U.
Elaine S, July 2008: Great room with windows on 2 sides, and beautiful view. Very comfortable accommodations. I don't think there was anyone across the hall using the bathroom, so that was never a problem.
Judith K, July 2008: I had a great experience staying at Keble College and would gladly stay there again, and also recommend it to my friends. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and made my stay all the more enjoyable. One suggestion I have is to place a mirror in close proximity to where a hair dryer can be plugged in, as it's hard to style your hair when you can't see it!
Thanks for contributing to a wonderful vacation!
Anjoum N, July 2008: Many thanks - a surprisingly professional service.
Jolyon B, July 2008: My only criticism is that 8 of us arrived on bikes. We asked the porters about secure bicycle parking, but were initially told we could only lock them on the street. Later we pressed the point and were told about a very good, large, secure bike park within the college grounds. It would have been nice if this could have been pointed out straight away.
Otherwise excellent. Thanks very much.
J J, July 2008: Detailed instructions in the room about internet access would be helpful.
Staff were very helpful, thank you.
Reva C, July 2008: loved it and would happily recommend it to anyone
priya S, July 2008: Thank you so much fo putting us all in the same area. We all thoroughly enjooyed our stay!
Rob V, July 2008: The standard of the room and facilities is average, but the environment and atmosphere more than compensate for this. For us it was a rather unique experience, nothing like any standard hotel. We stayed in the old part, so I cannot speak for the newer rooms. The "dining room" is so stunning, you almost forget you tast your breakfast! I will certainly recommend you to others.
Paul T, July 2008: My stay was very enjoyable. The only minor hitch was the key to the room I was first allocated didn't work and I had to return to the Porter's lodge 3 times to seek help. The porter on duty was extremely helpful though. Finally i was allocated another room and everything else was fine. Staying at the college made the trip to Oxford extra special. Breakfast in the dining hall was great.
Wendy F, July 2008: I was impressed with the quality of the room. I loved every minute of being inside a building with such beautiful architecture. Much better than a hotel. There was a very useful fridge inside a cupboard in my room, too - a helpful facility for cooling food and drinks bought outside and a brilliant practical idea. Warmed plates would keep the cooked breakfast from cooling down too quickly. A small box of paper tissues in the room would also be helpful.
Amelita D, June 2008: It was interesting to have the experience of living in one of the colleges. I would enjoy going to a different one next time just for variety.
Katie M, June 2008: Great find
Aino R, June 2008: Dear Keble College staff,

Mary-Anne P, June 2008: Absolutely excellent
Dr Lisa H, June 2008: compared to hotel costs we found staying in Keble College very reasonable. The rooms were of a high standard and the breakfasts were great. You might want to think about putting together little info packs for visitors of what to do and any offers
Keiko N, June 2008: The room was clean and quiet, yet the college was very conveniently located for visiting Oxford. It was great to have a gimpse of the student life at the college.
Richard L. R, June 2008: The room and Keble College were beautiful! I would recommend University Rooms to another american graduate student visiting Oxford. This was a great opportunity to experience a stay at an Oxford college, and was one of the highlights of my program of study in England.
Thank you. - Mr. Rosen

Jean M S, April 2008: It was a beautiful setting and although I was only there for a couple of days , my experience in Oxford was fabulous! The breakfast was great, the dining hall stupendous and everyone was very helpful and kind. The room was comfortable, a little spartan esthetically speaking, but clean and suitable. While the room is a good value in pounds, I was ultimately paying in dollars, which doubled the cost. That was my problem, tho! Thank you, I'll be back soon! Jean
Jamie P, April 2008: Exactly what I was looking for. Perfect. Thanks.
