For our first time in Oxford, we were lucky to spend a night at Tessa's. She is a formidable host, living in a sweet and calm house. We had a very relaxing time, and Tessa cooked a great breakfast for us (we still remember the taste of the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and of the homemade granola). We felt more than welcome and we highly recommend her. For sure, if we ever come back to Oxford, we know where we'll stay at night!
We had an excellent time with Tessa and she was truly a wonderful hostess! The house is beautiful, clean, and modern and Tessa was great in giving us our privacy but also being a personable and helpful host. Tessa put a lot of attention in all the details-- the room, the breakfast, bathroom, etc., and this was far more than just staying in someone's spare bedroom. Highly recommend staying here.
Great place and great location!!
Tessa was so nice and my friend had really great time at Oxford.
Loved staying in Tessa's beautiful, home. Tessa made me feel really welcome, nice to talk too and she cooked a great breakfast. The room felt very private, quiet, and both room and bathroom immaculately clean and the bed was very comfortable. Had a good nights sleep, can highly recommend Tessa's as a 5 star B&B with a personal touch. It is also in a good location, a quiet, pretty residential road, bus stop around corner, 5min with bus (runs every 10mins) to the centre.
Tessa was a most wonderful host. We stayed with her for our second night of a long stay in London/Oxford. She was flexible with our arrival time, had a parking space ready for us and make us feel welcome. Her home is beautiful, clean and newly renovated. She had a wonderful, super clean, and quiet room ready for us. The bathroom was also nice and spacious. After a great night's rest, Tessa made us a delicious and healthy breakfast. In fact she gave us choices on what we would like for breakfast the night before. She had baked us fresh bread, home made jam and a wonderful granola she had made herself. She was so kind, gave us pointers on where to eat the night before, had maps of the area that we could use and even let us borrow her guidebook for Oxford to get an idea of what we wanted to do. We really enjoyed our stay with her.
This is my best airbnb experience ever! Tessa is so friendly and warm-hearted, the room is pretty comfortable! If I would be back to Oxford, I will definitely choose here again!
Tessa provided good service. The bedroom and bathroom are clean and good decorated. The english breakfast is good, I'm very glad to have it again.
