I had a pleasant stay at Martina and Matteo's place. It only took me 15 minutes from the train station to get to their house ( on the 4 A bus to Elms Rise, getting off at Laburnum Road). Their house is situated up a hill, in a residential area. It has a well kept garden where my little daughter enjoyed playing and watching squirrels eat nuts on the hazel tree:-) The place was really spotless clean, in every part of the house, and our room was comfortable and quiet. Matteo and Martina were discreet yet helpful when I needed assistance, kindly lending me a travel cot for my one-year-old, for example, or taking time to explain to me the way to get to Oxford via the pathwalk (which I do recommend following). They offered us very good breakfasts always nicely presented. They were absolutely adorable with my little one, playing with her a lot (thank you very much again for the lovely stuffed toy, it has become a favourite of hers!).
My daughter and I had an enjoyable and comfort stay with Matteo and Martina. I would not hesitate to stay with them again if I were to visit Oxford again.
They were very helpful and provided us with tips to get around as well as guide books for Oxford and the Cotswold.
Matteo en Martina hebben een eenvoudige ruimte om te overnachten maar het is een prime uitvalsbasis om Oxford te bezoeken
We stayed 4 nights at Matteo & Martina's and we loved it !
From the get go Matteo made us feel right at home and welcome. The house was spotlessly clean and all the amenities were great. We liked the breakfast and the map of oxford they provided revealed to be of great use ! There were also candies and towels in the room, the outlet adaptor didn't work for European plugs though, but we found one for £4 in a shop while wandering in town.
We appreciated sharing meals and talks and also the liberty they gave us in their house. Again, we felt at home !
We also enjoyed being able to read in the setting sun in their garden after a busy day visiting oxford. It got very quiet surroundings.
There are a lot of buses on the way to oxford so we didn't use the bikes at all but it's definitely doable and cheaper : the bus costs £3.5pp for a return ticket, it takes 10min in the morning but 20min around noon when there is traffic.
We definitely, definitely recommend staying at M&M's for your visits in Oxford :)
A nice and cozy room with very nice hosts. The room was clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed for our stay in Oxford for a few days. The only downside is that it is not that close to the center (ca. 25min). Apart from that, definitly recommended.
Matteo and Martina hosted me and a friend of mine for a long stay of 2 weeks in their double bedroom.
Their house is adorable and the room very comfortable for two people, you can easily stay longer and have plenty of space for both.
The house has every comfort and it was very clean and knit, a pleasure to stay in, no need to ask for anything more!
Matteo and Martina were extremely nice with us, always available to answer questions about the city and helping us with going around, they really made every effort to make us feel at home.
The location of the house is 15 min by bus from oxford centre and the bus 4 A is very convenient and comes around every half an hour, in case of staying late at night it’s only 6 pound cab ride from city center.
I had a very nice and pleasant stay with Matteo and Martina.
When I arrived, Matteo showed me around the house and made me feel very welcomed. The room and bathroom were perfect, clean and comfortable, with all the necessary amenities included.
Matteo and Martina are very friendly and welcoming hosts and breakfast was delicious as well!
I would recommend staying here to anyone.
