, August 2015: Will stay again, but please not room 103, the bed was dreadful. I feel sorry for the student who has to sleep on the awful mattress. My first visit to Oxford and thoroughly enjoyed, will stay at St Anne's again. Thanks. 4/5

, August 2015: The only thing I could complain about was the heavy rain at my arrival! The room and facilities were clean and functional. Good mattress. Certainly not a room in which you would like to stay all day, but, to be honest, who would like to do that in this beautiful city?! I needed a place to sleep, to relax from long excursions, and for my personal hygiene. Everything was given. The porters as well as the staff in the dining hall were all very helpful and friendly. - I will definitely come back, if I go to Oxford, again. 5/5

, July 2015: It was my first time in University Rooms and I would recommend St Ann's to anyone. The room was modern, clean and comfortable and I was surprised to see even toiletries in the bathroom. A most enjoyable experience. 5/5

, July 2015: Generally a very good experience! The only issue I had was regarding the floor of the room. It is located on the third floor and there is no lift, which is not convenient for people with luggage. 4/5

, July 2015: My only complaint is that two light bulbs in the room weren't working - I only discovered the bedside light wasn't working once in bed. I feel sure the people at the lodge would have sorted it if I had contacted them. They were v helpful with storage of luggage 5/5

, July 2015: Stayed in a single ensuite room for £50 after a conference in a nearby college. Checked in at 10:30pm so thank goodness for the wonderful friendly 24/7 porter lodge staff, warm cosy room and fantastically clean and modern bathroom with super warm shower. Brilliant breakfast. Doubt you could get anything more for £50 in central Oxford! Thanks for a great stay. 5/5

Dr Margaret Connolly, July 2015: Lovely accommodstion and very helpful lodge staff. 5/5

Mrs Susan Anderson, July 2015: The only tiny tiny thing was the absence of a hairdryer. It seems churlish to mention it because everything was just perfect otherwise. Will definitely return. Thank you! 5/5

Miss Tracy Reynolds, September 2014: Thank you for helping me with printing, sincerely appreciated. 5/5

Dr Christina Oppenheimer, September 2014: The bedside light had a loose connection at the lamp and had to be manipulted to a certain position to keep it lit. Portering staff were largely very pleasant and helpful but on occasion one was rather rude and dismissive considering the population being catered for. The Welsh porter on at night was very professional, pleasant and helpful in particular and deserves commendation. Overall a very comfortable and relaxing visit. 4/5

Mrs Sheila Barr, August 2014: Balcony opening door was lovely, but not enough room to go onto the balcony which was a pity. Would have liked a tv in the room. Other than that it was a very enjoyable stay and very clean facilities. 4/5

Dr Joan Tumblety, July 2014: I very much enjoyed my stay and all ran smoothly with the booking, arrival and using the room. The room and facilities were absolutely fine (although the water power in the shower could have been better). It's quite expensive in relation to hotels etc. but perhaps not for Oxford! I would gladly stay again. 4/5

Ms Eleanor Hooker, July 2014: I was in a room that had clearly seen better days, but it was quiet and clean and I enjoyed my stay. 4/5

Mr Ioan Hadade, August 2011: I've spent a week at St Anne College during a course I took at the University.
