I had to be in Oxford for work and stayed overnight at Tessa’s wonderful home. Tessa is a terrific hostess: welcoming, helpful and extremely friendly. The house is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The bedroom was just perfect: relaxing and quiet and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom is far superior to the ones you find in many hotels. For breakfast you have a wide selection and I had the pleasure of helping myself of some homemade granola. I am very pleased I have stayed with her and cannot recommend it enough. Many thanks!
Tessa was an extremely welcoming and friendly host, who did her utmost to ensure our short stay was as comfortable as possible. We were greeted with tea and freshly made brownies upon arrival, and the breakfast was superb, including wonderful homemade jams. The bedroom was private and had a nice view, and the bed was very comfortable. We felt very much at home, I would highly recommend staying here! Thanks Tessa!
Tessa is such a gifted hostess. She was very gracious and welcoming. Her home is stunning and is so clean it sparkles. The breakfast she prepared in the morning was out of this world. We would love to stay again in the future.
Wir haben 3 Nächte in tessas sehr schönem und absolut sauberen B&b verbracht. Wir wurden von Tessa sehr herzlich mit Tee und einem leckeren Kuchen empfangen. Tessas Haus befindet sich in einer ruhigen, gehobenen Wohngegend. Die Fahrt in das Zentrum von Oxford ist mit dem Bus sehr unproblematisch, Fahrzeit 15 Minuten. Das Frühstück war sehr lecker und reichhaltig. Wir können dieses B&b in jeder Beziehung wärmstens empfehlen.
We stayed with Tessa for three nights in her beautiful and idyllic house in Summertown. She is the warmest and kindest hostess one can imagine. The room and bathroom is very clean, the bed is comfortable, and the breakfast is so delicious :-) Everything is homemade and Tessa really makes an effort to make you feel at home in Oxford. In fact, we were sad to leave!! She has our warmest recomendations :-)
We had a wonderful stay. Tessa's place was great! She was very welcoming and even had a cake in the oven for us when we arrived! Tessa was very knowledgeable of the area and took time to chat with us over tea. The bedroom and bathroom were super clean and breakfast was fantastic.
We just wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you so much Tessa.
