St Hugh’s offers accommodation set within fourteen acres of quiet, leafy North Oxford. Located just a only a 15 minute walk from the main attractions of Oxford.
We can offer ensuite bedrooms within the relatively modern Maplethorpe and Rachel Trickett buildings. We can also offer rooms with shared bathroom facilities within our more traditional Main Building. All rooms are provided with bed linen, towels and toiletries, and tea/coffee making facilities. Although these rooms are not to hotel standards they are comfortable, clean and tidy.
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.

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.

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 did not have a chance to try the breakfast.
Ms Susan Tibbles, November 2012: Lovely gardens

Mrs Mette Hansen, November 2012: I have just been back in Oxford after 40 years and I had a wonderful time staying at St Hugh´s College and I will highly recomend others staying there, instead of in a hotel.

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
Mrs Kerima Smethers, September 2012: We had a most enjoyable stay (all too short - 1 night!) and in fact

Miss Emily Goetsch, June 2012: All in all, a good experience, thanks!
Mrs mary-anne horsfall, June 2012: The information given was good. The college is in a good position. The room was basic but clean and comfortable, the bed especially so. Breakfast was excellent and the young man who assisted in the dining room with breakfast was especially helpful. It was good to be able to leave my car at the college and travel into town by bus. All in all amazing value for money and I would both stay again and recomment to others.

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.
Mr Anthony Binns, November 2011: All round excellence

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.
Miss Bernadette Bhakti, October 2011: Very pleasant stay. Yummy English breakfast! :)
Mrs Barbara Bryant, October 2011: I had a very good experience at St Hugh's and I would definitely go there again.
Miss Samantha Perera, October 2011: Absolutely great value for money, very friendly staff and beautiful grounds! There was a delicious Full English Breakfast on offer and also a very fast internet connection. Perfect facilities for both a short and long stay.
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.

Mr richard cowell, September 2011: Clean tidy room. Excellent powerful hot showers. Free WiFi. Good breakfast and a lovely peaceful location about 20 mins walk from city centre. Highly recommended.

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.

Miss Jessica Labahn, June 2011: I had a wondeful stay in St Hugh's College.

Andrea Vescovo, May 2011: In one word perfect. Thank you!
Angela Deveaux, May 2011: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St Hugh's College. Our rooms were clean and comfortable; bathroom and shower conveniently located across the hall. 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
Patricia Slatter, March 2011: Very good experience - only improvement would have been if the room had been en suite.

John Haskey, March 2011: I found my stay welcoming and friendly - which I much appreciated
Donald Rutherford, March 2011: The facilities are student quality (toilet and shower across the hall, inadequate lighting in room), but overall good value for money.
BERNARD MULHOLLAND, March 2011: I was very happy with the service provided and the facilities
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.
Izabella Khazagerova, January 2011: Overall I was very happy with the service at such price and plan to stay at this college again next time. Thank you!
vuillermet, January 2011: Un séjour agréable que nous recommandons à tous;
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!
Fiona Richards, November 2010: Brilliant stay - the staff were great
maryann gascoigne, October 2010: Found st Hughs and also Jesus on a previous time excellent service and experience.
Elisabeth DONETTI, October 2010: What a fantastic stay ! An unique way to experience the unique atmosphere of a Oxford College. Everything was fine : welcome, site, room, breakfast...we strongly recommend it ! Elisabeth & Nathalie ( Paris, France)
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.
Gayle Sutherland, August 2010: very noisy language student group around and about
Karen Horan, July 2010: Will definitely use again. Thank you
Paul Smith, July 2010: Really enjoyed my stay. I had two friends over for the weekend and not hotels were available. came accross web site and booked. I will in future be looking at this accomodation before looking at hotels as we really enjoyed our stay. Would recommend to anyone.
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.
Michael Hewens, June 2010: Lodge staff very switched on, enthusiastic and helpful
Lucy Valerie Graham, June 2010: I loved staying at St hughs it was so quiet and peaceful. Room was very clean and made me feel studious! Also great to have internet access.
Elizabeth Dunford, June 2010: I had a lovely stay at St Hugh's College. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and my room was clean, tidy and spacious. I would definately use University Rooms again.
Frank Aurzada, June 2010: Very friendly staff! Thanks!
Felix Rollin, June 2010: Very friendly and helpful staff!
Jean Mackie, June 2010: St Hughes was a wonderful place to stay. The room was large and comfortable and the grounds were superb. Very restful place.
John Garrison, June 2010: The staff was excellent. Cleaning staff were very helpful, patient, and always very friendly. The fellow who appears to run the breakfast program in the dining hall was especially helpful and welcoming.
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.
