My parents had a wonderful stay at Tessa's place. The location of her home is ideal as it is set in the quaint town of Summertown, just about a 10 minute bus ride to the city centre. Tessa's home is beautiful and well-equipped. We particularly loved her backyard and common area! Tessa is a wonderful host and prepared tea and muffins for us upon check in. She also prepared a scrumptious breakfast for my parents each morning and they enjoyed it very much! Additionally, Tessa was always available whenever we needed any help. She even made the bed every morning and went the extra mile by providing my parents with a heater when she found out that the radiator in their room was faulty. She took every measure possible to ensure that my parents had a comfortable stay. Overall, my parents thoroughly enjoyed their stay and are very pleased by Tessa's amazing hospitality. We would definitely recommend staying here if you ever make a visit to Oxford. You would not regret it. :)
Thank you Elaine.
It was a delight to meet you and your parents!
My plumber checked, and the radiator doesn't seem to be faulty. The central heating goes off during the night - maybe that's why they felt a bit chilly! I was happy to supply a heater is now located in the cupboard for use of future guests.
We had a wonderful stay with Tessa who looked after us with such care from start to finish. The house is beautiful, the garden is peaceful, and Tessa makes the best granola in the universe! We would love to stay again next time we are in Oxford, and would certainly recommend Tessa's place to anyone looking for a high standard of B&B.
LaRae, my daughter, and I felt like Tessa gave us a home away from home. It was exactly as described. The house was impeccably clean. The breakfast was delectable, and the neighborhood was quiet, convenient for our purposes, and nothing but pleasant. The bed was totally comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spotless and roomy and well-equipped with soaps and body wash and big, fluffy towels. We certainly plan to be back again in years to come. We cherish the memories Tessa helped us make on this, our first visit to the UK.
Tessa and her house were absolutely charming - we were the only guests so were able to park our car off the road for free which was a huge help. The room and bathroom were spacious and spotlessly clean. Tessa's breakfast was delicious too and I was very surprised to find a vegetarian fry up option, which was lovely.
Overall, I would highly recommend Tessa to anyone and will definitely be back again should I need to stay in Oxford.
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.
