    Great price, added extra's like good selection of tea, coffee, hot choc, yummy biscuits, cooked breakfast. Good location - walked into the centre and back twice and direct bus outside runs to the centre. Had wifi, parking, comfortable beds, TV in room, iron and ironing board

    Not particularly welcoming staff, looks a little tired and run down but overall just great value for money!

    The friendly owner directed us to one of his other properties on arrival, and offered us two very pleasant rooms, one a family room and the other a double. The family room was near the road and a bit of traffic noise. Everything was very clean and beds well made. Lovely cooked breakfast, and the owner made us very welcome and couldn't do enough to help.

    There was a slight problem with the drainage from the shower, and we had problems initially locking the door, but managed in the end.

    The Athena Guest House is actually in 2 buildings. The first one was quite tired and run down and I wondered what we had let ourselves in for especially as we were going to have to share a bathroom... We were asked if we were having breakfast and said no. The man then gave us directions to their 2nd building. Then 2nd one looked like a newer addition. The room was basic but freshly cleaned, laminated flooring, and had a small en suite shower room. We were right at the top so I think we were next to their living quarters but that meant it was very quiet.

    The first building.

    Very friendly owner..offered us free breakfast that was not originally included.

    We did not feel safe in this area. . we walked to downtown, crossed over the bridge...totally different night &day..Everything was beautiful, historic & quaint.Compared to the other Guesthouses from our trip this one was very dirty & cost around the same.

    beds were comfortable. Breakfast was simple but well cooked and sustaining.

    noisy pub across the road. very low pressure on the shower. not much room to move around the room or place suitcases. Not enough room in the dining room to accommadate guests requiring breakfast.

    The bed was surprisingly comfortable and there was a good supply of tea & coffee in the room. The young girls serving breakfast were polite and cheerful.

    The decor was disgustingly tatty and worn with paint and plaster falling off everywhere. Carpets and rugs were filthy and thread bare. Electrical wiring totally illegal with wires taped across stairs and electric wires coming into show cubicle.(we didn't risk using the shower ) Every thing was held together with cellotape and bungy straps. Worst of all was rudeness of the ? owner . No greeting , no introduction, just took our money ! I would say to anyone intending to stay here YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. If do risk it , I would recommend taking your own fire extinguisher and only book a downstairs room , then you may survive the inevitable fire.

    Pictures broken with glass hanging out. Room dirty, cobwebs on walls, paint peeling off. No room at breakfast had to wait for someone to finish before you could sit down. Sanitary ware not removed from previous occupant. Parking very difficult

    Nothing.

    Everything. I don't expect much from a value hotel with shared facilities, but this was just ridiculous. Firstly, a rude welcoming by the staff. Then the room, well it was just terrible. I have stayed in better hostels. The noise outside the window, and lack of normal things you expect in a hotel room of any price range. The shared bathrooms: one was okay, the other was filthy with a massive poo sitting in the toilet that wouldn't flush. Just delightful, don't you think? TV didn't work either... I think you would have to be a person with very bad taste and a general disregard for the value of money to rent a room here.

    The room was comfortable enough and the wifi was not bad. The girls in charge of the breakfast service were really kind and the breakfast was good.

    The owner made us pay on the spot, just as we got there, but could not remember us from one day to the next. They took away the linen and the last night of our stay we had no sheets on the bed. They threw away personal stuff we had left in the bathroom. Not important stuff, but still!!

    Situated close to the Oxford University 'campus'. Room was clean and very presentable. Breakfast was good.

    It is always tough when a property is on a very busy street.

    Clean, straightforward

    Comfort very basic, in front of a (good) noisy pub, welcome starts when your credit card is in the terminal and ends when transaction is validated !
