Great place, the room was exactly the same as you can see on the picture. Room, bathroom, kitchen were clean and really nice. Isabel is really nice person and she always tries to help you if you need it. This place is located near the city centre, so you don't have to pay anything for bus or taxi. 10/10.
Cozy room, nice house, perfect location a stone's throw from downtown!
Isabel and Mark were great hosts and I felt very comfortable.
Very welcoming couple, accurate description of the accommodation, quiet neighbourhood that's close to the centre of Oxford.
Amazing. The location was perfect; nice walk into the city center to see all of the colleges but close to bars, grocery stores, cafes, etc. Mark and Isabel have a beautiful home and they are kind and gracious hosts. I really enjoyed talking with Isabel over a cup of tea. It was a lovely experience and if I ever find myself in Oxford again I would love to stay with them again.
We'd never been to Oxford before so Isabel was really helpful with providing us with maps and suggestions of where to go. We found her to be very approachable and friendly and I myself even enjoyed a glass of wine with her one evening in the garden. The room was clean and nicely present with a very comfortable bed. The location itself is perfect as was a 10 minute walk from the centre and surrounded by bars and restaurants, which was nice to be able to take advantage of in the evenings. Overall a lovely stay and will definitely be recommending to friends in the future.
