History to the present day
Compared to many Oxford Colleges, St Hugh’s is young. It was founded in 1886 by Elizabeth Wordsworth, the great niece of the poet. She named the College after one of his twelfth century predecessors, Hugh of Avalon, who was canonised in 1220, and in whose diocese Oxford had been. Elizabeth Wordsworth was a champion of women's education, and her foundation of St Hugh’s enabled poorer women to gain an Oxford education, beginning in a house with just four students.
Now more than a century later, over five hundred undergraduates and graduates attend the College. The first male undergraduates were admitted in 1986.
Food and Drinks
A full English breakfast is included in the price of your room and is normally served in the Dining Hall (apart from at certain times of the year when the location will be advised on Check-in), between 8am -10am during term time and 8am - 9am during vacations.
Grounds and gardens
We are fortunate to have fourteen acres of self-contained grounds, with ample lawns, borders and mature trees, making St Hugh’s one of the loveliest hidden delights of Oxford. There are plenty of benches available so guests can relax and enjoy our quiet and pleasant grounds.
Bedrooms in the Maplethorpe Building have wi-fi network access which can be made available to guests. Please ensure you mention in the Additional Information section of the booking form if you require access to this service, so we can issue a username and password.
For wi-fi access in the main building, please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get wifi access but advise that when you arrive to ask at the lodge for a wifi password and username; then you can try and log in. Most rooms do get wi-fi but as mentioned this is not guaranteed.

We guarantee that all our feedback is genuine and can only be submitted by people who have booked through our websites.
Mr Warren Bank, December 2014: We really enjoyed our stay at St Hugh's and the comfort of the facilities. The bathrooms had tons of boiling hot water and were spotless. Porters were friendly.
Mr Peter Elliott, November 2014: Once again st Hugh's was superb.we were able to change room for one nearer a bath/toilet. Staff and porters are very helpful. Breakfast is very good indeed. Bus services very convenient in and out of city
Prof James Bryant, November 2014: Pleasant, friendly college for a weekend stay. Room cleanliness and service fine. Door catches somewhat noisy (so all door opening/closing along corridor very apparent esp. at night) and door lock a bit temperamental.
Dr Peter Scharbach, November 2014: Highly recommended. The room was large and comfortable, breakfast substantial, and the College gardens inviting.
Mr Robert Kusyk, November 2014: Perfect. I am a foreigner and first time visitor to Oxford. In that the room and all aspects of the hospitality were precisely as advertised (in the best way possible!), this was as fine an accommodation experience as I've had anywhere in the world. Thank-you and I will certainly stay at St Hugh's again when I next visit my daughter. Truly yours, -Bob Kusyk
Prof Joachim Kuhn, November 2014: The room gives back the feeling of being a student again.
Mr Srikrishna Harave, November 2014: Decor is dated which lets it down. Otherwise excellent. Excellent value for money.
Dr Claire Gains, November 2014: Basic but spotlessly clean with comfortable mattress and pillows. Shared bathrooms but plenty to go around. The only down side is that if you turn the shower temperature up so its warm enough (the max is still only just bearable) then the water pressure drops to a trickle.
Overall a great value stay at a price hard to beat in Oxford.
Dr satkurunathan MAHESHWARAN, November 2014: Convenient spot for oxford. Lack of ensuite bathroom or toilet facilities is a big disadvantage as there is no wash basin in the room.
Mrs Jane Bradburn, November 2014: Porters excellent
Ms Birgitte Melchior, October 2014: Staying in an Oxford college is always a very special experience. The environment is beautiful.The staff is friendly and knowing. The rooms not big but give you a feeling of belonging.
Mr Phil Rowell, October 2014: Will be coming back!
Mrs Christine Deller, October 2014: What a wonderful setting!
Miss Sara Emslie, October 2014: A very efficient and clean service, comfortable room, and a great affordable accommodation option. The bonus was it was in one of Oxford's colleges. Would definitely book again and recommend to friends.
Mr Ian Murray, October 2014: Many thanks to the porter who showed me to find my room on my arrival. Super value - I would recommend this scheme very highly.
Ms Jennifer McGinley, October 2014: Everyone was very friendly and helpful including the porter and dining room staff
Mr Stephen Chapman, October 2014: Excellent stay. Best recommendation is I would do so again.
Ms Jill Lane, October 2014: Please be aware that the shared bathrooms can be quite a hike. If you are an older traveler, who may need to use the toilet in the middle of the night, you may wish to consider a different place to stay. Otherwise, this was a great one time experience and would most likely be an ideal place to stay for a traveling student.
Mr Hendrik Croonenborghs, October 2014: No comments, except for the shower. We were with 3 guys who didn't care too much for warm water, but other guests might bother that 1. the water was cold and 2. not much water was coming out.
Other than that, everything was just fine!
Ms Renata Ruszkiewicz, October 2014: A warm welcome and comfortable room. Not as plush as some colleges, but then not as pricey either. I would've appreciated the option of an earlier breakfast (7-ish would have been more convenient -- I was running the Oxford Half at 9:30am and an 8am breakfast was a little too late for me).
Mr Bernhard Keller, October 2014: The Kitchen was below the room window. So the air I got was not always fresh. But apart from this, everything was great and I enjoyed my stay and the college yard.
Mr Andrew Hay, October 2014: St Hugh's is a lovely college situated just right for my needs. On arrival the Porter's were charming, very helpful and very funny. I booked a standard room which meant that I could just swing a cat and that the loo and shower were down a corridor. This is fine for one night but if I was staying more than one night I'd have booked an en-suite room.
Prof Floyd Sandford, October 2014: All of the staff I encountered were helpful and courteous. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the in-room amenities appreciated. The cooked breakfast and breakfast bar options were excellent. Many thanks.
Mrs Susan Sloman, September 2014: Porters and all kitchen staff were very friendly and helpful.
Mr David Mercier, September 2014: Excellent value for money
It will be even better to have one bathroom for one room (not to have to share the bathroom)
Mr Keith Iddenden, September 2014: All lovely and the porters were most helpful. Thank you. Keith
Dr Megan Barker, September 2014: Great place, good price. Showers were quite low pressure.
Ms Emma Davis, September 2014: Very lovely stay
Mr CAREY GRIFFITHS, September 2014: Could not be better!
Dr Jan Harald Dobloug, September 2014: Very pleased. Appreciated silence in sleeping area. Nice accomodation.
Mr Janusz Piotrowicz, September 2014: Overall good experience. Recommendable for short stays.
Ms Abigail Joy Chan, September 2014: Comfortable stay after a long trip. The staff is very helpful and friendly, lending to a great experience over-all. The grounds are also very beautiful. The room is clean.
Ms Alison jane Knight, September 2014: I stayed at the college to attend a conference at the Dept. of continuing Education. I found St. Hughes very welcoming and friengly. I would certainly recommend to others travelling by themselves. My only concern was that I didn't have time to sit in the garden which was a riot of colour and well maintained.
Mr Jonathan Marshall, September 2014: Thank you for a great stay
Mrs Andrea Surgeoner, August 2014: Would certainly use university accommodation again.
Mrs Alicia Calvert, August 2014: What a beautiful college and to have a room overlooking the garden was a delight. A lovely peaceful stay, near enough to the city centre to easily walk in but far enough away to make on-street parking over the weekend an easy option. Would love to stay here again at some time in the future.
Mrs Joan Holah, July 2014: Excellent new study bedroom which was extremely comfortable and well-appointed. Staff all very friendly and helpful. College grounds beautiful and ideal for walking in /relaxing.
Prof Kenneth MacLeish, July 2014: It was rather warm in the building (Dickson Poon) and in the room, despite being pretty cool outside. Also, it would be nice to be able to enter and/or at least leave by one of the south side gates.
Great stay overall, the housekeeping, breakfast and warden staff were all very helpful and accommodating.
Dr Anna L. Dallapiccola, July 2014: It was a positive and very pleasant experience
Miss Hazel Pryor, July 2014: Stayed for 3 nights just after end of summer term to visit Oxford. My room overlooked the terrace garden and lawns, quiet and restful. Car parking was nearby on college property, with frequent buses round the corner into city centre. Showers and toilets immediately across the corridor - clean and showers worked fine. Porters and kitchen staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast in the dining hall, and if you are not too early - you can read a newspaper.
Wednesday 2nd July 2014 was Open Day for prospective students, so all the colleges were open - useful to know if you want to visit.
(Also I can recommend "As you like it" in Wadham College gardens by Oxford Shakespeare Company.)
I would stay at St Hugh's on any return visits to Oxford.
Ms Ying Fang, July 2014: It's the best hotel that I have ever lived in the UK. We can not only experience the learning and living environment at Oxford university but also enjoy the best service with the lowest price. The breakfast is perfect. Every staff member is dedicated and highly efficient. I will definitely recomment this excellent accommodation to others.
Prof Mary Anne Mirabella, June 2014: I enjoyed my stay there--it was pleasant and cozy. The bathrooms were immaculate -- the carpet needs to be replaced or cleaned, and some of the toilets are impossible to flush. I loved looking out on the garden and having it there.
Mrs rachel paxton, June 2014: Wonderful accommodation and lovely shower rooms very clean. Also, hot breakfast was especially nice along with the kettle available in the room.
Ms Amanda Stuart, June 2014: A brilliant experience and very goos value.
I absolutely loved St Hugh's and will stay again if I possibly can. It was superb.staff fantastic, all facilities good, and the college and grounds outstanding. Wish I had been there longer and in different circumstances -- it was the night before an exam! Regrettably cannot rate breakfast night. Nice staff in restaurant but food was heavy and greasy. Not good if one does not like meat. No list up, so I did not see porridge until after I'd had greasy egg. Had porridge then, not great. Egg not at all great. No sense of whether I could have asked for a poached egg. Etc etc. so just not what it could be. But overall, excellent.
Mr Adam Neill, June 2014: All the staff I encountered were very helpful. I was shown to an area where I could park. The college was a peaceful place to stay. Rooms were very clean and although bathroom facilities were shared they were spotless. Breakfast was plentiful and of a good quality.
Mrs Catherine De Pauw, June 2014: what a pleasure to stay in a college ! beautiful garden !very kind people !
room a little too far of the facilities! not enough pressure for the hot water in the shower
Mrs Nora Rolle, June 2014: A wonderful experience!
Miss Emily Parton, June 2014: All staff at St Hugh's were polite, helpful and professional. An excellent experience and I will deifnitely be returning to St Hugh's should I need to stay in Oxford again. Thank you!!
Prof Miranda Wilcox, June 2014: I enjoyed my stay at St. Hugh's and would stay there again.
Mrs Martha Herr, June 2014: The staff--porter, kitchen/dining room and housekeeping--
were all so friendly and helpful. Definitely
a 5-star dorm!
Prof Thomas Hutton, June 2014: My daughter and I had a fabulous experience. Having been a student at Hertford, I was delighted by the immense grounds at St. Hughes.
Mrs Christine Radtki, June 2014: We really had an enjoyable time at St. Hugh's College and would recommend it to friends, if asked. Thank you very much for this precious experience of staying in a lovely college in an amzing town!
Mr Mike dUNNE, June 2014: Ideal for my one night stay
Mrs Jill Smith, May 2014: Much better value than a Travelodge and facilities were at least as good. Nice quiet setting too.
Mr andrew hoban, May 2014: I was very happy that the environment was very quiet at night. I was attending a workshop on 14th in St Hugh's College so I was really happy to have been able to get accommodation and the room was fine for my needs and all of the staff were pleasant and helpful, notably the porters who ordered me a taxi. Gold star.
Mr Jon Horbaly, May 2014: Clean facilities and very cordial staff. Great experience
Mr Patrick Ryan, May 2014: A very pleasant stay in delightful surroundings and certainly value for money.
Ms Dorothy Bailey, May 2014: Hadn't realised that bathroom facilities would be shared but that's my fault for not reading details thoroughly. In practice it was not a big problem and enjoyed my stay in interesting and historic Main Building.
Ms Celia Fitzgerald, April 2014: On behalf of my friends who actually stayed in this room, everything was superb and they were overwhelmed by the excellence of the breakfast and the beautiful garden.
Ms Celia Fitzgerald, April 2014: Everything excellent especially the breakfast which was fantastic in every way.
Ms Christina Thomas-McGenity, April 2014: I have stayed at St Hugh's several times. It's not luxurious but it is clean, private, has lovely gardens, parking and is a pleasant walk from Oxford centre. What more do you need?
M. Dominique Casajus, April 2014: La rentabilité globale a été excellente: le prix était très raisonnable est la qualité suffisante pour mes besoins. J'ai été un peu surpris que les WC ne soient pas dans la chambre, mais peut-être avais-je mal lu la notice avant de réserver. Le petit déjeuner était très copieux.
Mrs Ece Bandirma, April 2014: I could not expect anything better for the price I have paid. Great experience all in all, felt as if I were back in college! Thanks, E
Other Patrick Coffey, April 2014: I was delighted upon arrival: my room was ready and the Porter was friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but pleasant, clean and offer refreshments. Cleaning & catering staff were all very friendly. Some Porters need further training - perhaps - getting up from their seats..; being pleasant, engaging & helpful does not appear to come naturally to some. Filtered coffee, please, at breakfast. Otherwise overall good experience.
Mrs Katherine Nash, April 2014: All staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the room and bathrooms were spotless at all times. I would consider using this facility again and recommending it to others who wanted to stay in Oxford.
Miss Christele Joly, April 2014: The staff (reception and cleaning ladies) are very friendly and professional. Well done!
Mr jonathan shimwell, April 2014: Lovely gardens and setting. Very peaceful. Fantastic value. I'm still working my way through the colleges trying to find the best and am looking forward to my next stay
Ms Stella Scrivener, April 2014: Basic level accomodation well priced for the city centre.
Mr Tim Boardman, April 2014: Good Simple room with ample desk space to allow me to work.
Mr Leigh Harrison, April 2014: WE MISSED BREAKFAST SO I COULDN'T COMMENT, OVERALL THOUGH EXCELLENT. THE STAFF AT THE PORTERS LODGE WE'RE POLITE AND HELPFUL TOO.
Prof Michael Fischer, March 2014: This is not a 5 star hotel, but is excellent for what it is, a nice bed, good workspace and ensuite facilities. People are all friendly and accommodating. Very nice context and grounds. Breakfast very good.
Mrs Elisabeth Hoelzl, March 2014: We enjoyed our stay very much, especially the beautiful grounds of St. Hugh's.
Prof Angela Brintlinger, March 2014: Alas, we didn't stay for breakfast, as we had an early train.
Lovely buildings and grounds, very helpful staff, a great stay.
Mr Peter Mulholland, March 2014: Very pleasant stay. Staff in Porter's Lodge were very helpful!
Mr Maxwell HUTTON, March 2014: A very enjoyable experience, a nice clean and quiet room a short walk from the city centre. I would certainly stay there again.
Mr Christopher Warren, March 2014: The porters were extremely helpful and courteous; I was also impressed by the Philippine lady who recognised me as a visitor and welcomed and directed me at breakfast.
Mrs GILLIAN HOLT, March 2014: The College and grounds are lovely. I stayed in a room in the oldest part of the building. The room was quite large, clean and well appointed with a nice view of the gardens and a good range of useful accessories. The only negatives were the rather noisy doors and the bathroom fittings which were clean but rather past their best.
Dr. Céline Sabiron, March 2014: All was well
Miss C.A. Whinnom, March 2014: Can't comment on breakfast except that I got up and went to work too early to have it! Immaculately clean, warm and comfy. Spartan, but if you choose a university room then what do you expect? Very friendly welcome, including efficient explanation of free wi-fi. Would stay again.
Ms Sada Reed, March 2014: Fantastic room and breakfast. My only complaint is that check-in is not until 2 p.m. For international travelers experiencing jetlag, waiting until the afternoon to rest was a bit much. Once I did get my room, however, it was a great experience.
Mrs Ann Round, March 2014: This was a thoroughly enjoyable stay at St. Hugh's. I have no negative comments at all. The standard of everything was top class. The place was lovely and warm, the bed very comfortable, everything spotlessly clean, the breakfast was SUPERB and the standarad of the ingredients excellent. I just hope that they are not full up when i want to stay there again. Fantastic value for money. Ann Round
Mr James Manning, February 2014: Splendid, thank you. Staff very helpful.
Mr James Manning, February 2014: Great weekend, thanks.
Mrs marianne sheehan, February 2014: The room was comfortable & clean. So grateful for tea & biscuits, & towels. We would have liked to be a little nearer to the .bathroom. the gardens were beautiful & must be lovely in summer.
Tea & coffee not hot at breakfast. But friendly & polite girl serving. We would book again.
Dr Alexandra Cunha, February 2014: Very nice and friendly porters.
It was great that we could leave our car inside the college throughout our stay and a couple of hours after checking out.
The only bad thing was the doors' noise, which banged too strongly!
Mr Felipe Valencia, February 2014: Great value for money, thanks!
Mrs Annette Cavanna, January 2014: Good value, clean and comfortable. Bit of a walk to the bathroom.
Ms Susan Waterhouse, January 2014: I had thought the room was en-suite, however I loved my over night stay and had no problems.
Mr Steven Brereton, January 2014: Room in the main building felt very cosy and warm. Not en-suite however the toilet and shower were directly opposite. The shower water took a long time to heat up in the morning, but that may be because I was first to use it and the cold water had to work through the pipes? Once it had heated up, it was fine. WiFi access was also good, however the session kept closing, requiring re-login..so often that I was eventually able to memorise the random password. Parking was provided. Nice English breakfast with welcoming staff. All in all, very pleasant stay. Thank you.
Mr Andrew Ross, January 2014: The room was small and spartan but clean and serviceable. The nearby bathrooms were utilitarian but clean and fully functional. Altogether the stay was excellent value for money in a world of overpriced and overly arty hotels.
Mrs Linda Hanna, January 2014: For the price we each paid for our single rooms, excellent value for money (although my husband found his single room just a LITTLE too cramped! Mine was fine, almost twice the size!
Mrs Lesley Pook, January 2014: Very clean and comfortable.
Mr Richard Chandler, December 2013: Thank you for enabling me to stay over, it made it so much easier.
Mr Gary Cox, December 2013: Did not have breakfast as prefer to eat later in the day, very pleased with my short break in the city
Mr Adam O'Grady, December 2013: Highly recommended.Very convenient and great value for money.
Ms P A Gwynn-Jones, December 2013: I enjoyed my stay very much - the room was simple, but clean and warm. The staff were helpful and professional. I know there is building going on, but I found the gardens tranquil and very pleasant to wander around.
I would quibble with yourwebpage's "20 minutes"walk, though. I took me 20 minutes to get from St Hugh's to the Ashmolean, and another 10 to the station.
Mr Christopher Williams, December 2013: Just a touch expensive for a room with
no ensuite, otherwise very quiet, very pleasant.
Mrs Gretchen Hucklesby, November 2013: The friendliness and efficiency of the staff generally, make this a very pleasant place to stay. Acommodation, though simple, is perfectly adequate and comfortable, and good value.
Ms Patti M Houisse, November 2013: I enjoy my stay though I wish I'd realise first how far it was from the city center, after 30 mn walk! The room was fine, the bathrooms & toilets a bit far, in a different corridor. But it was quiet & fuss free. Good breakfast too and lovely grounds.
Mr Lewis Willcocks, November 2013: Very good value for money and a really efficient booking system.
Mrs Chan Mayor, November 2013: Booking was easy-very pleased with your arrangement for parking my car-lodge staff very helpful-everyone welcoming and overall a VG service. My only negative point was that the showers were pretty poor-but it could have been that I could not work them It did not spoil my stay. I have stayed in various Oxford colleges when I have lectures to attend, and found it a gooox experience. I hope to stay again soon.
Miss Alisa Stratulat, November 2013: We had a great time at St Hugh's and we highly recommend it!
Miss Nicoletta Bruno, October 2013: Beautiful experience. I recommend St. Hugh's college, I have been here for 12 days and next year I will come back again. Quiet atmophere useful for scholars.
Ms Laurel Stone, October 2013: We enjoyed our stay in this lovely building. Staff were helpful and food was delicious.

Mr Yibo Wu, October 2013: Nice place to stay. Quiet and clean.
Dr Susanne Österlund-Pötzsch, September 2013: I very much enjoyed the peaceful athmosphere and beautiful setting of St Hugh's College.
Mr Stephen Hayden, September 2013: Rooms fresh, and spotless . Lovely and warm , piping hot water and spotless bathroom . Beautiful grounds definitely stay again
Mr Charles MICHAEL Rust, September 2013: A nicely carpeted and tastefully furnished comfortable room in a late Victorian building of some history. I was not able to take breakast but have every reason to believe it would have been good.
The facilities were shared with a Conference of Archdeacons / Bishops!
The bathrooms were clean and everything well maintained.
The Porters were helpful and parking was arranged.
A pleasant experience.
Mr Czeslaw Molodecki, September 2013: All the staff were cheerfully attentive and helpful. An added benefit was the availability of on- site car parking.
Good value for money!
Ms CHRISTINE BROWN, August 2013: The college experience was excellent. Only the plumbing let it down, particularly the shower. We would definitely recommend st Hughes as a wonderful place to stay, fabulous location and outstanding value for money. Chris and Julie, Melbourne, australia
Ms Janet Tavener, July 2013: St Hugh's is very well situated in central Oxford. Room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was good. Good value for money. My only complaint was with the clock tower bell which chimed on the hour all night. This is obviously traditional to the college, but did keep me awake!
Dr Valentin Kozhuharov, June 2013: It was a pleasant experience to stay at St Hugh's, and I liked its environment and quietness, the all-friendly staff, and the college's services! I will certainly recommend it to my colleagues and friends in their visiting Oxford!
Mr Adam Oberfrank, June 2013: I am familiar with university-style accommodation, so I found the facilities to be typically clean, functional, and nicely located. The grounds and gardens of the school were quite attractive. I would definitely stay again. It's too bad that guests do not have access to a common room for basic fridge or microwave use. Otherwise, good value and accommodations.
Mr Ray LePine, June 2013: We were very pleased with our stay at St Hugh's College. We will book again next time we stay in Oxford.
Dr Terri Ochiagha, May 2013: This was my second time at St. Hugh's and it was a bit like returning to a home away from home. I had a great experience and highly recommend this college accommodation.
Dr David Molyneux, May 2013: Really enjoyable stay great breakfast, very friendly staff
Mr max waldron, May 2013: we had a great stay in the middle of a 6-day walk. A great base to revisit Oxford after 30 years.
Ms Dorothy Tarrant, May 2013: My stay at St Hugh's was delightful. The college is about half an hour's walk from the town centre, but well worth it to discover this jewel of a campus hidden away in a quiet residential area. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the room clean and comfortable, the splendid English breakfast included also choices of fruit, yoghurt, croissants, and the morning paper. Little touches like a kettle and the makings of tea and coffee in the room, and free Wi-Fi were very welcome. Best of all were the beautiful gardens full of blooming trees and spring flowers, and the freedom to walk or jg or just sit and enjoy. I hope to come back.
Mr Xavier LECOQ, April 2013: The room was very clean tks!
Ms Elizabeth Patton, April 2013: Wonderful experience overall. I plan to come back!
Mr Jeffrey Donahoe, April 2013: This was a good idea and a lot of fun. Porters were very helpful. The room was warm, so a fan would have been nice, and a larger water since it is a long way back to the bathroom.
I didn't stay for breakfast, so I can't comment.
Glad I learned about the opportunity through a friend.
Mrs Jennifer Williams, April 2013: I will be happy to book for St Hughes again. Thank you.
Mrs Lorna Jukes, April 2013: Had a lovely stay, lovely staff breakfast. Rooms were basic but that was expected. Only complaint was the clock tower outside room 54 chiming every hour at night.
Mr Torsten Blank, April 2013: We've enjoyed our stay!
Mrs Jo-Anne Riley, April 2013: My stay at St Hugh's was very comfortable with the head porter/steward being extremely helpful and proactive with B&B guests. The room in Maplethorpe was clean, spacious and well appointed, with a lovely desk space.
Dr Carolyn Coole, April 2013: I would stay here again. Simple but sufficient in lovely grounds. Very helpful staff, wi-fi available. Handy if attening course at Ewart House, close to Jericho and walkable from city centre 20-30 mins. You can also wonder if you've slept in the same room as Barbara Castle or Aung San Suu Kyi!
Ms Catherine Joyce, March 2013: I very much enjoyed my stay in St. Hugh's. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the facilities were excellent.
Dr HYANGYUOL LEE, March 2013: I was very satisfied with the single room. Thanks!
Mr BERNARD MULHOLLAND, February 2013: Oodles of character and I must say one of the hghlights is also the brief, brisk walk into town past the ecclectic townscape.
This is my third stay at the college and I fully intend to revisit again.
Mr Paul Rowe, February 2013: Better than expected for student accommodation. Clean, warm and a good breakfast. Would do again.
Miss Claire Richards, February 2013: certainly would recommend
Mr Andrew Watkins, December 2012: The room and facilities were very clean throughout, and staff were very friendly.
Mr Eric Fay, November 2012: St Hugh's is located a little further out than some other colleges, but it is a beautiful walk into town. Bus stops are located around the corner. I had a very late arrival (after midnight) which was not a problem. Bathrooms and showers are conveniently located directly across the hall from the rooms. I did not have a chance to try the breakfast.
Ms Susan Tibbles, November 2012: Lovely gardens
Mr Ferdinand Bogman, November 2012: Thank you for a pleasant stay at your college.
Mr Pete Coulson, November 2012: An excellent base only a short bus ride from the city centre. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Beautiful gardens.
Mr hubert mazeaud, November 2012: enjoyed having breakfast among real students
Mrs Jan Nerenberg, November 2012: Excellent and I'd stay again in a heartbeat. As a matter of fact, I am planning on returning with several other PhD's to visit and will hopefully be able to book rooms with you. Breakfast was also above expectations.

Mrs clare powis, September 2012: We had a lovely stay at St. Hugh's. It was my old college, so maybe I'm biased but the standard of cleanliness was superb, the breakfast quality-and service-were of a very high standard and the gardens(for which the college is renowned) looked lovely, as always.
We brought our Finnish friends to stay and they loved it.
St. Hugh's is in a lovely quiet part of Oxford and just a short bus ride or manageable walk from town. Ideal.
Mr Vivek Bhalla, September 2012: Great combination of price and location.
Ms Fiona Williams, September 2012: We had a two room unit I cant remember the number but everything was delightful and we would visit again

Mr Nick Darton, April 2012: All round, staying at St Hughes was an enjoyable experience. You fail to ask about the staff in tick-box matrix above and they are a major asset. All of those I met (from porter, to cleaning staff to kitchen staff were very helpful and extremely pleasant.
True, the room and the bathrooms could have been a little better cared for but the reasons for this this slight criticism didn't spoil my stay.
The setting of St Hughes is good. I'd have no hesitation in recommending it and I hope to go back again myself at some point in the near future.
Mr Richard Moore, April 2012: For a quiet, peaceful stay in lovely surroundings and with an unobtrusive but efficient level of service, St Hugh's would be hard to beat.
Mr Alessandro Gualtieri, April 2012: Great place, extremely clean, quiet, comfortable and even a bit cosy.
Excellent quality at a very reasonable price.
Miss Kaela McIntyre, April 2012: Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!
Mrs susan smith, April 2012: a great experience for all of us and fantastic value for money. Thank you St Hugh's!
Mr Manfred Walch, April 2012: kann ich weiter empfehlen
Mr Ian Forster, April 2012: I was very impressed with the service when booking, the staff at the College (very helpful), the breakfast (fantastic choice), the location and the price! The rooms were basic but perfectly adequate and great for the price. The only downside, and it is only a small gripe compared to how good everything else was, was that the all the doors on the corridor tended to bang quite loudly which wasn't ideal late at night or early in the morning. Overall, I think you would be hard pushed to find decent accommodation like this, in such a good location, at this price with such good service.
Miss Eva Katasi, April 2012: Good service. Delicious breakfast. Just wish there was a bathroom closer to my room. Toothpaste might have been nice. But great value for money.
Dr Giselle Gos, March 2012: So, the bathrooms smelled kind of bad and didn't always have soap. The rooms were large enough but had no fridge and internet was spotty. Breakfast was good though and the staff were very nice and helpful.
Miss Christine Collier, March 2012: The room was changed at my request to one overlooking the garden which was lovely, with plenty of natural light, (my first room was rather dark overlooking another building). Staff were friendly and helpful.
Ms Livia Hlavackova, March 2012: The booking was very very easy, the accommodation was great and we regret not staying longer than just one night.
Miss Laura Oxley, March 2012: Really great place to stay, friendly and helpful staff, and lovely breakfast with a lot of choice. The room was clean and tidy. It was much bigger than what you would get at an average hotel for the same price and had a large desk which was really useful for working whilst I was staying. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Ms Michelle Else, March 2012: I took the 2A bus from Oxford, up Banbury Road to the St Margarets road bus stop and was delighted that the main entrance to St Hughs was only 50m walk. The check in porters lodge (security office) had the nicest gentlemen who were very informative and made check in a breeze. The moment I walked through the doors of the main building, on route to my room was the moment I knew St Hughs would be a enjoyable and memorable stay. It was a spacious hall with a imposing solid wood staircase ascending. (Also a lift, but I had only hand luggage so was easy).My room 5x3m was larger than expected with a study table and chair. The shared bathrooms were easily accessed and immaculatly clean. I never saw anyone else- so was more like my private bathroom across the passage from my room. The bed was warm and comfortable and the surrounds very quiet except for the occasional person moving through the swingdoor in the passage. But that stopped after 11pm.The one thing that was curious was the breakfast. I walked down to the dining hall for breakfast in the morning, and seeing students paying for their food, I was not sure if the breakfast was paid for, didnt see anyone to ask. I wasnt very hungry so chose to skip the breakfast. Next time in Oxford I will book at St Hughs again as my stay was very enjoyable. I would also like to take the opportunity to walk through the grounds and the gardens as they looked idyllic, with large graceful lawns and majestic trees.
Miss Nicola Holt, March 2012: Excellent way to stay in central Oxford on a budget. Accommodation was clean and well organised (tea/coffee, hairdryer, toiletries and towels), staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay again.
Mr BERNARD MULHOLLAND, February 2012: I found the visit very relaxing, very quiet, and the surroundings delightful.
I chose not to have breakfast on this visit, and so I am unable to grade it.
Mr Adrian Williamson, February 2012: Fantastic stay and value for money
Mrs Kathryn Heap, January 2012: Good value for money and a nice experience to stay at an Oxford college. The room was clean but basic which is what I expected from a college room. Nice to have tea, coffee, kettle . Not on suite but at the price not unreasonable to not have this, as long as that is made clear at the time of booking.
Mr Andrea Vescovo, January 2012: in one word: excellent! Thanks!
Mr ROBERT THOMAS, January 2012: Very pleased with the service. I'm likely both to use again and to recommend
Mr William Waldron, December 2011: A really lovely place to stay. Everything was perfect. The staff at the lodge were exceptionally helpful. I would recommend St Hugh's to anyone.
Ms Natalia Korsakova, December 2011: It was a simple student room, but it has everything that is needed for a short stay, has a perfect location and great price. I would definitely recommend to stay there if you travel to Oxford.
Mrs Anna Falk, December 2011: Nice experience living at St Hughes. Recommendation through daughter-in-law and son living in Oxford since 3 years. Easy to get into city with bus or even walking. Nice, quiet surroundings, beautiful garden even in December.

Dr Gillian Gregory, October 2011: I very much enjoyed my stay at St Hugh's. The bedroom was comfortable and warm, and the general atmosphere friendly and helpful. I loved the gardens. If it had been available I'd have liked to have dinner in the college. Thank you.

Mrs Cherry Hutton, October 2011: good experience, excellent service given. Above all the one thing that made me choose St Hughs was the ability to park my car - almost no other college in oxford offers that facility a real selling point for St Hughs- also I requested wifi internet access and it was very good. Will come again.
Mr Keith Parker, October 2011: The staff in every department where excellent, so keen to please. A wonderful example of what hospitality should be. Thankyou to all of them.

English breakfast and kitchen staff were excellent!!
Dr Richard Stead, July 2011: Great accommodation which also comes with a parking space which is a rarity worth it's weight in gold in oxford.
Ms Banu Kaygusuz Tezel, July 2011: It was a very nice experience for me as a researcher who visited UK for the first time.

The breakfast was delicious, with lots of selection. The staff at the Lodge: very friendly and helpful upon checking in and when we returned with questions, etc. A wonderful experience during our stay in Oxford. Thanks!
Miss Jennifer Lea, May 2011: The college porter was very helpful and friendly.
The room and facilities were very clean, and the college grounds were beautiful. The college is situated in a lovely part of Oxford, with good bus links.
Mario A. Braescu, May 2011: Decent accomodation, decent facilities, decent grub.
To be recommended!

gatehouse staff helpfull.
nice peacful setting to stay in.
Ms diane bilinski, April 2011: Very enjoyable experience and an excellent way to enjoy wonderful Oxford without breaking the bank! Staff helpful and friendly, room spotless - would definitely use University Rooms again.
Ms janet hall, April 2011: We enjoyed our stay. St Hughes is a lovely place to be -beautifully maintained and peaceful. It was a pity that the view from our room was limited ( by a parapet). Perhaps they could have the low sugar Alpen for breakfast as well as the original, which is sugary.
Mr Will Wong, April 2011: I could not score the breakfast as I did not make it to breakfast hence default score.
For what I wanted i.e somewhere to stay near central Oxford at a reasonable price, this met my expectations fully and was therefore value for money. The college grounds were lovely. If luxury and all the mod cons are your thing then you might consider paying a little more for a hotel.
Mr Edward Byers, April 2011: Very nice - safe and comfortable - was a good experience.
Mr Steven Totman, April 2011: Generally very good - staff were incredibly helpful - a better mattress in the room would have made a considerable difference though
Miss Kerry Keating, April 2011: Had a fantastic time. No noise, great views overlooking the gardens from my bedroom. Great staff, great location and only takes 20 mins to walk into the city. Will definately be booking to stay here again. The only thing I would suggest is that at lat at night if you wanted to watch the tv, as there are no tv's in the room, I would reccommend to book a room with wifi internet so you can take your laptop. Otherwise fantastic value for money
Mr Haiko Jahn, April 2011: excellent accomodation, free WIFI & car parking, shower could have been better (have experienced worse, but could be better!)
Mr lewis hill, April 2011: Great location and room for the price. Not that far from the centre of Oxford. (10mins). Would stay again. Oh and good breakfast, had loads which was what i needed in the morning.
Mr haiko JAHN, April 2011: included free parking & free wifi - excellent value for money
Ms Kristine Logan, April 2011: Great experience: beautiful building and college, lots of clean bathrooms, big bathtub, lots of hot water, good breakfast, nice fruit, very helpful guys at the lodge for directions, parking, and pubs. Good parking. Quiet! Loved it.
Mrs S. Davies, April 2011: A clean, safe, quiet place to stay in Oxford. Staff are helpful, room is typical student accommodation. Plenty of wash rooms, lots of hot water.
Free parking is an added bonus. Would recomend
Mrs Barbara Jago, April 2011: I would stay here again and recommend to friends. Easy to reach from M40.
Miss Helen Tooley, April 2011: Rooms and facilites were very clean, staff helpful and friendly. Loads of choice at breakfast.
Mrs Anne Prestidge, April 2011: Difficult finding the place and getting in! Could have done with a map as the parking is not in the same road as the address! But the porter's lodge is the other side! A clear map would have been very useful. Also carpark shuts at 6 pm so you have to get key from Porter's (which is difficult to find!) Apart from this which a map would completely solve - it was brilliant.
Mr Patrick Alexander, March 2011: Can't fault the accommodation for the price. Clean room, friendly staff and great breakfast
Elizabeth Sharpe, March 2011: very good facilities and very pleasant stay

James Chidgey, March 2011: Very pleasant and quiet.
andrew walden, February 2011: very nice accommodation near enough to town
Patrice Costin, February 2011: Very good value for money. There was something nice about experiencing Oxford in this way. Clean room, with excellent facilities. Very comfortable stay. A little hike (15-20 mins) from the city centre, but no big deal. Perhaps the heating in the room and corridors needs to be more regulated. They were both very warm. Had an excellent experience.
Graham Martin-Royle, February 2011: St.Hugh's is close enough to the centre of town to enable you to walk in and out. The facilities provided are basic but perfectly adequate and, in terms of value for money, are excellent. The service provided by the staff, the welcome, the breakfast etc. are all good and I would recommend St. Hugh's to anyone wanting to stay in Oxford, especially if they are on a budget.
Lindsay Driediger-Murphy, February 2011: Clean quiet room, convenient location near bus stop.
Ms Frances A Zammit, February 2011: This was very basic accommodation and it is a good thing that some people this offer this as the price allowed me to stay in Oxford when I might not have been able to if only more luxurious accommodation was offered. So my excellent is based on this and I would be careful that some people may not take the price they have paid into account when responding.
Diana Buckle, February 2011: Excellent, a very nice place to stay.
Dr Susan Jones, January 2011: College staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was excellent. I would certainly do this again.

une précision : en week end c'est très calme car il n'y a aucun étudiant
Mathieu Morey, January 2011: It was a very pleasant stay overall: quiet, comfortable and clean.
Mrs J M RUSHGROVE, December 2010: Nice and warm (even though it was -7 outside) and clean. Very quiet and bathroom opposite my room. Basic accom but perfectly adequate.
Sebastian Kreutzer, December 2010: Friendly staff. Unfortunately it was the last day of the term so it was a little bit noisy.
Romualdo Santos, December 2010: A very basic room. It was only one night, but the stay was satisfactory for my objective: a safe, clean and quite place for an overnight when participating in a seminar at the University.
Hilary Bulman, December 2010: Excellent location for stay in Oxford. Can walk or short bus ride to city centre. Ability to park car a great bonus. Simple basic room with walk down corridor to ablutions. Generous breakfast.
Gabrielle Suet Yee, YIU, November 2010: very nice experience! I will come again and introduce to my friends!
Mark Haines, November 2010: Nobody's going to stay at St Hugh's and be overwhelmed. It's cheap, clean accom just a little bit too far out of town to be ideal. However, it's very easy to find ( if you're coming from the north down the M40 ) and there's no false expectations. Really good value for money. Didn't have breakfast.
Graham Peach, November 2010: A treat beyond our expectations given the excellent price. Well received by the friendly porters, a clean and comfortable twin room (we pushed the beds together - very nostalgic!), not being en suite was no real problem (the floor was quiet and we rarely saw other guests or students) and the breakfast was first class in quality and service. We'll be back again!
David Strudwick, November 2010: Very comfortable stay...again! Shame I couldn't extend my booking by one night...but you were fully booked...and I guess I'm not surprised!

maryann gascoigne, October 2010: Found st Hughs and also Jesus on a previous time excellent service and experience.

Terry Blacker, October 2010: Very warm welcome with minimum of fuss. Would definitely recommend to stay in a college and the parking is a bonus.
Aaron Lai, September 2010: St. Hugh's is a lovely college within walking distance from the town center. The garden is very picturesque as an English garden.
Martyn Buxton-Hoare, September 2010: Brilliant for the money - and free parking as well in the middle of Oxford is a great bonus.
Beds were a bit lumpy though, but even so, a good night's sleep.
Mr Henry Dunstan, September 2010: Room clean. Breakfast truly superb. Thanks
Mr Greg Harris, September 2010: Excellent breakfast and clean room.
Dave Wright, August 2010: Porters were very helpful
Rebecca Dunne, August 2010: Enjoyable stay. Very quiet and peaceful.
Only downside was that the car park was locked about 8pm which meant a lonely walk up the drive, in the dark, when I had to park on the street later in the evening.
Deirdre MacCarthy Morrogh, August 2010: Had to chase up request for parking, but otherwise very pleased with the overall experience.
Ian Willetts, August 2010: Picturesque college, very friendly, very quiet.

Mrs A Skinner, July 2010: It would have been helpful to have had some tourist information available especially a map otherwise a very pleasant experience and very quiet at night
Pat Mapley, July 2010: My accomodation was a better standard than I expected.
Dr Colin Machin, July 2010: some time the room gets over heated, and the air circulation is poor. (could be just an unusually hot summer...) apart from that, it was very very good.
Lorraine Durcan, July 2010: Excellent value for money, beautiful surroundings, visit too short!
Dr Alison Lane, July 2010: Very friendly and welcoming staff.
The facilities were very clean and tidy, although some (bathrooms, etc...) were a little run-down (although expected for a college and the price).
Chris Tenove, June 2010: Everything worked out very well, including the staff at St Hugh's.
JeYoung Jung, June 2010: I really enjoyed staying your accommodation.
Cheryle Gittens-Bailey, June 2010: Overall this was a great experience.
David Strudwick, June 2010: Another very pleasant stay while attending lectures and tutorials...many thanks.
Professor Barbara English, June 2010: A wonderful experience, very friendly and helpful staff, the gardens a joy in the summer weather, quiet, well placed for buses, can't recommend too highly and would certainly go again.
Jonathan Lamb, June 2010: All of our international guests were very thankful for the chance to stay at St Hugh's. Thanks very much indeed for your kind help.

SADAF AHMED, June 2010: I really enjoyed my stay, the service was great, everyone at the lodge was very helpful including the gentleman at breakfast who approached me and showed me the breakfast menu.
Dr Margaret Connolly, May 2010: Overall experience was better than I'd been led to expect from the booking, e.g. St Hugh's had told me in advance that weekend breakfast was a brunch served from 10.30; this did not fit well with my conference and I was expecting to miss breakfast each day. When I arrived they told me that they now served a full breakfast from 8 am - the provision was sumptuous! I was very pleased with this experience and would use the booking service again in the future.
Lieve Meerschman, May 2010: Great way to visit Oxford !
David Sampson, May 2010: This is the first time I've stayed at St Hugh's. I'm a part time graduate student and need periodic accommodation. I stay at colleges when I can. It was overall, an excellent experience. Much better than some of the hotels in the area. It's a great value for the money and is close to all the science departments. The bus stops are very convenient too. The room was clean. The only drawback the shared showers and toilets, since none of the rooms are en-suite. If you can live with that, it's a great value and location.
Anthony Bays, May 2010: Basic but to a high standard.
Robert Papstein, May 2010: As you can see I was very satisfied. Only niggle was that the cooked breakfast on Saurday was not available at until 8:15 which meant I had to bolt down my breakfast in order to catch my transport to the airport at 8:30. All in all, excellent value for money.
Georgina Shaw, May 2010: Will definitely use again and have already recommended the website.
David Strudwick, May 2010: Again, very pleasant stay. Many thanks for looking after me.
Rosemary Broadbent, May 2010: Accommodation was basic, as advertised, but very good value for money in a normally expensive area. The location and welcome very much appreciated.
Carl Hopley, May 2010: I have stayed in many B and B's in Oxford but this was by far the best. Pricing is fair. Staff are friendly and the general experience of staying in one of the colleges was great. I would always aim to stay with University Rooms again.
Mr J P Lawson, April 2010: Quiet and comfortable.
Dr. Irén Kertész Wilkinson, April 2010:
Thank you for the welcome and for the experience of staying in such a beautiful and historical place.
Monica Araya, April 2010: I loved St Hugh's College so much I cannot wait to be back soon. It`s peaceful, it is beautiful and very well-organised. I stayed in the modern facilities and was very happy with my room and especially my oh-so-spacious desk! It is further away than other colleges and that made it perfect for my intensive-writing purposes. The good thing is that it only takes a 15 min walk to be back in the city center. Perfect balance. Very friendly staff. I highly recommend it.
getta sutton, April 2010: This was an excellent experience. I loved St Hughes College and the grounds. The porter could not have been more helpful on arrival. The room was comfortable; I was surprised and pleased by how exquisitely clean the whole of St Hughes was, what excellent cleaning staff you must gave. Breakfast service and food was spot on, would have scored an excellent but the toast was soggy. I will definitely book into St Hughes again. Thank you.
David Strudwick, March 2010: I had a lovely stay, its a splendid college and the arrangements were terrific...no problems at all. I achieved a good deal of progress on the academics, clearly in part, due to the location. Equally, this place would be fine for a short break...which we're planning for July. Many thanks.
Anna Faber, March 2010: Very peaceful. Lovely gardens.
Mrs Julie Sprague, March 2010: Easy to book and check in. Very friendly and helpful staff. Fabulous surroundings
Lynn Dunlop, March 2010: An extra effort was made to accommodate me over four days even though there was not initially a room available for one of the days. I couldn't have been more impressed with the level of service and the experience of staying on the University grounds was a highlight of my stay. Many thanks to all involved.
H.M. Hintjens, March 2010: It was lovely to be in a hall in Oxford and the staff, students, everyone were really very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed it, especially the simplicity.
Jenna Synnestvedt, March 2010: I loved how staying at St. Hughes in a dormitory gave me an immediate feeling of belonging at Oxford. I walked out the gate and a lovely 10 minute stroll led me (and plenty of bicycles, strollers and other pedestrians) into the heart of this wonderful town. I was travelling alone and felt quite comfortable walking back to the college in the evening. Now I can say, 'I was a resident at Oxford for a time....' which could come in handy.
prunella theaker, March 2010: excellent location, lovely grounds, free parking, great food, pleasant room, very interesting fellow guests/students to chat to, most polite and helpful gatehouse staff when I could not find my room after half an hour (incorrect arrowing on notices) - but this just added to the fun and overall very enjoyable experience, will certainly be coming again
Alison Parry, March 2010: I had a fantastic stay! Room was fantastic, very comfortable and clean in beautiful grounds. Internet service was very reliable. I was able to get another room in St Hugh's after this first period - which gave me the much needed time to rent an apartment for the following months of my placement! Thank you St Hugh's (the staff sorting the accomodation were amazing!) and thank you universityrooms for providing a great and reliable booking service!
Katie Garner, February 2010: Faultess. Brilliant to have car parking available and so close to the main university buildings. I was also very impressed with the breakfast service and selection. I have since recommended St Hugh's to other postgraduates visiting Oxford for conferences and research visits.
Kathryn Varley, February 2010: I would certainly use this service again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
A very enjoyable and comfortable stay.
Uros Desnica, September 2009: St Hugh's College, Oxford , is very conveniently located for people coming with the car (straightforward entrance/exit from the main roads, safe parking) but still close enough to the city center - walkable distance (also many buses)
Richard Fullbrook, August 2009: Rooms very basic but sufficient for short stay. Staff very cheerful and accommodating.
John Lee, August 2009: Found this a very enjoyable couple of days. An interesting experience for those who've never been to a university, and a worthwhile trip down memory lane for those who have. Thought we might be a bit intimidated by Oxford but we weren't. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, or friendly. The accommodation was comfortable, we particularly liked the 'twin single room' set-up at St Hugh's. The breakfast was excellent. Had a small problem with access after dusk when most of the gates are shut, but that was mainly misunderstanding on our part. Our morning tour of Oxford, organised by the tourist information office, was also very good. Mr and Mrs J Lee
Fran Sims, August 2009: Superb! Will be recommending St Hugh's to my friends! More welcoming and easier / more flawless booking system than so many hotels / b&bs
Mary Johnson, July 2009: Booking a college room was a really good experience. It was good value for the money and the staff made us very welcome. Thanks for a pleasant stay!
Marianne Edwards, July 2009: I received a lovely welcome from the porter (and a good chat about the college itself!) upon arrival and enjoyed a nice stroll through the grounds.
Being able to park in the college was very useful given the limitations for parking on the road.
Overall the room was spacious, clean and had a nice view over the gardens.
Philip Garrison, July 2009: Excellent stay. Clean, comfortable room with large desk. Good breakfast. Plenty of car parking. Oxford city centre a 5-10 minute walk away. Would stay here again.
Tony Tracy, July 2009: yes, we had a fine time. We missed breakfast because it finished a wee bit early for us given the exertions of the open days and overall I think it was just fine. Rooms were clean and the tea and biscuits much appreciated! So, no complaints.
Sally Harnett, July 2009: Parking arrangements were very good and the lodge reception very helpful.
DELAUNAY Joëlle, June 2009: A very pleasant stay in your geen college with good breakfast and enjoyable accomodation facilities. I'll come back.
delaunay joelle, June 2009: I enjoy this quiet and pleasant college with so pretty lawns, as well as the availability of the Lodge, and the cleanliness of the accomodation.
Holger Gerlach, June 2009: Great place to stay. Everyone is really friendly and helpful.
Mrs S J BURNS, June 2009: Fantastic buildings and grounds. I would gladly used University Rooms again.
Jennifer McDowall, June 2009: I enjoyed my stay in Oxford and will definitely book through your website again. Many thanks to the staff at St Hugh's who were all very helpful.
yohan chan, May 2009: very nice place, very tidy very clean and lovely atmosphere in a college! only inconvenience was the work on the entrance but when that is done it will be a lovely place to stay. brings you back to undergrad days
Rob Paterson, May 2009: This was superb excellent value a really sweet and helpful porter, absolutely no complaints, fantastic place to stay in Oxford
Judith Yeats, May 2009: My friend and I had a thoroughly enjoyable visit. The staff were friendly and very helpful throughout. The college was situated a very pleasant walk from the town centre. The grounds were lovely, it was a very peaceful place to stay and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
Don Cowap, May 2009: Extremely helpful staff at the lodge and in the dining hall. The breakfast was superb. Would definitely stay again.
Jeffrey Fish, May 2009: The college staff were extremely kind. Facilities were clean. Over all I am very pleased.
Larissa Leuenberger, May 2009: I had a great time, the room and facilities were perfect. I just had some problems to find ways in and out of the college (the mainentrance was closed)... .St Hugh´s is really near to the city centre and sommertown shops and amongst a beautiful area. Ireally loved it and would love to come again.
Dr Simon Dixon, April 2009: Generally satisfactory stay - comfortable bed, clean and quiet room, staff at porter's lodge very helpful. Not as atmospheric as older Oxford colleges, but carparking this close to the city centre is a good reason for choosing St Hugh's again. I stayed during the Easter holiday, so the wardrobes were all locked and out of use which would have been inconvenient if I'd been staying for longer. Otherwise, absolutely fine for a college room.
Agustin Crespi, September 2008: It was a delightful experience for me and my family, my children loved the college and everyone there was very nice and helpful. We will certainly come back!
Steve Granocchia, September 2008: Overall a very positive experience and I would definitely use this service again and recommend it to others. There were issues over making amendments to my booking due to site maintenance - the College that I had booked was not visible on the amendments screen - but these problems were resolved in a timely manner and did not cause a great inconvenience. Check-in was fine, breakfast was very good, the electronic access is excellent. Overall my party was pleased with the accommodation.
Mark Stevenson, September 2008: Very excellent all round. I'll be using your service again. Thank you.
Grant McDonald, September 2008: Overall our stay at St Hugh's was very good in relation to value for money. The rooms were clean and tidy. The staff at the gatehouse were very helpful. The standard and choice of food available at breakfast was excellent. There was a mistake with our booking in that 3 single rooms had been made ready for us when I had booked 2 singles and a twin. This, however, was corrected by the staff at the gatehouse within 30 minutes. I would recommend staying at St Hugh's to family and friends.
Lisa Sivyer, September 2008: As our ratings show, the whole visit was excellent; the bursar was very welcoming, and particularly helpful and accommodating, allowing us to leave our luggage and car before the allotted check in. The food was super. The only thing marginally below excellent was the mattress in one room (the one without a wardrobe), which seemed a little damp, and formless! The Oxford info pack provided was very useful. We loved every moment of our visit to the college and to the city.
Brigid Armstrong, September 2008: My son and I stayed at the college for 2 nights while we had a look around before he submits his UCAS application. The porters were both very helpful and pleasant. We had real trouble locating our rooms and I would suggest that better numbering and information would be of real help. I had driven from St Andrews on the day we arrived and it took us about 25 minutes to get to our rooms. we had to go and get the porter and even he had trouble finding them for us. I was absolutely exhausted and could have done without it! However, our stay was fine, the breakfast was good and the location was perfect for our needs.I would definitely stay in colleges again if the need arose.
Neville Holyoake, August 2008: Staff all very nice, especially the cleaners.
Mrs R Prescott, July 2008: I can't work out whether the first circle is excellent or the last circle: to clarify I found the website, service, breakfast and overall experience excellent. I would definitely consider booking a college room via the wbsite again. All the staff I met were very helpful and friendly and I would recommend the service to friends, family and colleagues.
beryl graham, July 2008: Good to be able to park a car withen easy walking distance of the city. Staff very helpful.
