Both Jan and John were very welcoming and in addition to providing a very comfortable place to stay were an invaluable source of advice on some issues I was grappling with handling on this trip. They truly went out of their way to make me feel at home.

We were very pleased with stay. The room was very well appointed, quiet and clean. We chose to have breakfast and John accommodated us very well. We were connecting on to London and the train was very economical (£11 for two). Four thumbs up from the two of us.

Made to feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this place to people staying in Birmingham. The hosts were efficient in communication and most helpful with transport suggestions and support for getting into Birmingham central. The room and bathroom were clean and restful. Breakfasts were excellent with lots of flexibility of food choices and times to eat.

Ответ от Jan:
Ohhh Diana, what have we started here? Do you recall that you changed your mind about the first booking you made with airbnb and by chance only decided to be here @ The Oxford Guest House instead because I stated that we had other delegates going to the same conference at the International Conference Centre (ICC). Little did we know then only a few weeks ago when you booked that 4 night stay that it would lead to you joining us on what has become the annual bird watching trip to the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. Needles to say we all hit it off. I've said it before and I'll say it again...the people who find us are meant to find us. Whether that be in my life as a therapist or here @ The Oxford and so as another guest becomes a friend I urge anyone thinking of becoming a host with airbnb to take the plunge read our reviews and see how our lives have been enriched over the past two years by the process.

Jan and John are the loveliest host. They made my stay very comfortable. Lovely garden, Clean house, Clean room, good conversations aswell . Jan and John are really lovely. they made me feel welcome moving to a big city like Birmingham. They are extremely accommodating. The bed was also very comfortable. The house is located in Acocks green and it only takes roughly 5-10minutes to get into the city on a train. i will recommend everyone coming to Birmingham even for just 1night to stay at the oxford. I have no doubt you will enjoy your stay here.

Ответ от Jan:
Well Sonya, in that 1st 3 week stay with us this was such a great outcome for you and speaks volumes about Brummies in general. After only a few days you told me not only how comfortable you felt here with us @ The Oxford but also that you intended to practice in Birmingham at the end of your course. This is a great and wonderful city. When you needed extra days accommodation our friends Kevin and Filippa stepped in to take over the role and I know they enjoyed hosting you too. Now you have moved on to a more permanent address in a part of Birmingham we would envy you for, if you were not such a lovely young woman. We wish all the very best for the future. Jan

I contacted Jan only a few days before I was due to come up to Birmingham. Unfortunately her rooms were all taken (a testament to their popularity) but she was very accommodating anyway and managed to put me in touch with her friends, and neighbours, who also run a B&B. Jan was brilliant at communication, responding to my messages very promptly and even came round to say hello when I was staying with her friends. She and her husband are lovely, warm, welcoming people- the perfect B&B hosts.

Ответ от Jan:
Our friends Kevin and Filippa were singing your praises so you certainly made a good impression on them. I'm only sorry that as you say we were fully booked and didn't get the chance to host you ourselves. If you find yourself here in B'ham for any reason then do try us again. Actually even if the calendar looks full its worth just asking the question. Every success to you too.

Hi, I'm Jan and I run The Oxford, a 3 bedroom guest house with my husband John. We are just 3.5 miles from Birmingham City centre and again about 3 miles from Solihull town centre. I'm a Yorkshire girl but have lived here in Birmingham for over forty years. We both love meeting new people and entertaining, and look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our home and help you to discover all the wonderful and interesting things that you can do and see here in Birmingham.

Since we started this B&B venture in summer 2014 we have been staggered and delighted by how well we have been reviewed. We just received an award from another site a rating of 9.5 for 2015 & now 2016

In terms of our hosting style...we like to think that we are guided by you and your needs during a stay if you like to be involved with a bit of banter when you come in that's all well and good, equally if you prefer to have privacy and your own space we will respect that too. So if you are feeling at home during your stay, we have got it right!

In April we were invited to Barcelona to meet up with a student and her parents who stayed here for 12 weeks during Erasmus term. Laura and her friend Julia Ramirez (see review) could not find short term clean/decent/affordable accommodation elsewhere (even though they spent 4 days in Birmingham searching). The problem was timing, all the best student accommodation had gone by the time they came in late Sept. We offered them a shared room and it worked out very well. Here in Acocks Green we have the fast rail link into the city just 2 minutes walk from The Oxford and it only take 6-9 minutes to get into the heart of Birmingham with just a ten minute walk to Aston University Campus, where they were studying.

If the calendar will not let you book the dates you require then do make a request by sending us a message - it may be that we can make some acceptable room adjustments/upgrades for other guests and accommodate you as well. We try our best.

We state one month maximum stay but if all is going well then we might well extend the availability. One guest, Waleed, stayed for five months last year!

A little about us:

John and I are in our youthful sixties, with grandchildren we adore, which has enriched our lives.

My work as a Clinical Health Restorer makes me tick. Specializing in relieving physical & emotional pain whilst teaching stress relief techniques to promote relaxation. Giving hope to those who have been struggling with chronic worry, anxiety pain or depression, which in turn helps them to find peace of mind with deep sleep patterns restored. My job satisfaction is immeasurable.

John is extremely well read and can usually converse on most subjects: sports music, films, history, art and English being his favorites. He has been a keen artist since childhood and continues today, his colourful quirky work is dotted around the house with a particular emphasis on bird life, which is part and parcel of his life.


We spend as many hours as we can in our own sunny south west facing garden, which has a backdrop of mature trees. We are happy to share this glorious space with you. Take a cup of tea or coffee out there whilst you wait for your breakfast to be cooked and listen to the birds singing. The Woodpeckers and Nuthatch nest locally. We are lucky to have a pair of Bullfinches as regular visitors to our garden which often plays host to a charm of Goldfinches. The garden also attracts a wide range of wild life so there is never a dull moment what with me and the squirrels digging for England with our resident Robins always close to the action and John enjoying the views.

Anyway, that really is quite enough about us. We are looking forward to meeting you, but until then, we wish you a lovely day!

Any questions? do simply ask - we are happy to help with anything we can to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. We can book or recommend local restaurants and John has a wealth of local knowledge.
