The rooms are clean and comfortable. They are equipped with a desk, tv, hairdryer, free wifi, coffee-tea and hot chocolate :) making facilities and cookies. Besides a pick-mix cooked breakfast (vegetarians can also have a veggie sausage) there is also cereal, joghurt and fresh fruit to choose from. It's all these little things and the nice owners that make you feel at home here.
In some of the rooms at the front of the house you can hear quite a bit of traffic noise. If you are sensitive to this, ask for a room at the back of the house and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful stay.
The Acorn is about a 20 minute walk or a couple of minutes by bus from the city-centre. Cowley Road with its many restaurants is a five-minute walk away. Just across the street there is the Magdalen Arms pub. The prices here are a bit higher than in the average pub, but you also get higher quality food (new menu every day).
