Central Oxford - your own entrance!

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Walton Crescent, Oxford, OX1 2JG, United Kingdom

A lovely clean space with double bed, built in wardrobe and shelves for clothing and a bathroom en suite. Crisp clean linen, towels and breakfast provided, all 5 minutes from everywhere special in Oxford.

The Space

We bought our house for its location - being so close to the centre of an amazing city like Oxford has really paid off. We love being a short walk away from all that is going on here - so much beauty, learning and green spaces for a bit of peace.

The accommodation consists of a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. The room is reached by going downstairs through the garden and has its own entrance. (check out the photos) The house is Edwardian outside but super modern inside - minimalist emphasis on style over content.

Guests can expect a clean and comfortable night's stay with a shower/bathroom, towels provided. The bed is quite low down to the floor, so may present difficulties for disabled guests. We provide tea and coffee making facilities, and, there are plenty of great cafes nearby.

Unfortunately, we can only accommodate adults here as we are not set up for children, however little!

Breakfast is provided upstairs which will be home made muesli, juice, home bread bread and marmalade. Seriously good for you!

Three doors down from our house is one of Oxford's best Lebanese restaurants, and up the road is Oxford's trendy Jericho area full of bars and restaurants. There is an excellent art house cinema 7 minutes walk away - which shows lots of foreign films.

The bus station (which has 2 lines to London) is 5 minutes walk away and the train station is 11 minutes walk away.

Guest Access

Their own entrance to their room so they can come and go as they please. Breakfast provided upstairs.

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy having breakfast with our guests and providing them with a yummy healthy start to the day. One of us will be present to give keys and introduce guests to their rooms.

The Neighborhood

Jericho is the coolest place to live in Oxford. It is its own little neighbourhood with bars, restaurants, cinema, pubs with music nights AND 5 minutes from the main shopping streets and some of the most beautiful architecture in England - Oxford University.

Getting around

Everywhere is walkable and bikes can be hired nearby.

  • We had a lovely stay in Jericho - the best area to stay in Oxford: a short walk from the centre, but with its own distinct community and restaurants and close to the lovely Port Meadow for a nice stroll.

    Couldn't have been made to feel more at home by Hoonie - thanks!

  • Sadly we missed Hugh, but Hoonie was a delightful and fun hostess. Comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, and a great location for exploring the wonderful city of Oxford.
    If arriving by car we recommend dropping off your luggage first and using the park and ride for a worry free stay.

  • Perfect room & location for my stay. A 12 min walk to the Said Business School and even closer to shops and bars in Oxford. Neighborhood felt safe and I was comfortable walking back late at night. The room and bathroom were comfortable and clean. Wifi was flawless. Spoke mostly with the high-energy, super friendly Hoonie, who was very kind and thoughtful. Enjoyed a lovely breakfast with Hoonie and Hugh every morning, good food & good conversation. Highly recommended!

  • We had a great pleasure staying at Hoonie and Hugh's place while exploring Oxford. they are located in a walking distance from all the places you want to visit. we got a warm welcome and Hugh helped me by providing a temporary parking permit for my rented car.
    in the morning we also had the pleasure to have breakfast with Hoonie and Hugh and enjoyed the conversation as well as the fresh juice and everything else.
    Thank you Hoonie and Hugh! it was a real pleasure meeting you and staying at your place!

    Response from Hugh And Hoonie:

    Hey Leon - thanks love for the review. We are still boasting about having you to stay with us. Amazing. I was playing with my grandson today and he showed me a 'parrot' that went with the pirate he likes - said 'parrot' wasn't a parrot at all - he was a blinking dodo!!
    Good luck with everything

  • It was a really good time beeing in Oxford again and it was great to have such welcoming hosts like Hoonie and Hugh.
    I really enjoyed the breakfast time with them.

    March 2014
  • We really enjoyed staying at Hoonie at Hugh's! Both of them are highly sociable, approachable hosts who make you feel welcome in every respect. Hoonie's homemade muesli and bread is as healthy as it is delicious. The room is truly shipshape and Bristol fashion - it's absolutely cleanly and decorated beautifully. Warmly recommended!

    Hi Thomas - what a lovely review - and good to see you are incorporating a lovely old fashioned (but still very much in use) English piece of idiom.
    Best wishes to you and Antonia

About
we are a couple living in a small Edwardian house but its interior is very modern, minimalist and chic. We are renting out a double bedroom with bathroom ensuite in the basement where you would have your own separate entrance. Continental breakfast is provided with home made muesli, bread and marmalade. We've had people staying here from all over the world and enjoy meeting new people - good to get a view from outside one's own country. We have travelled very extensively - in 2010 for nearly a year in Latin America. We are both Quakers (look them up on (website hidden)) which doesn't mean we are religious people (far from it) but it does mean we like to behave as ethically and responsibly as we can over all issues, particularly regarding our peace testimony and protecting the environment. So our life motto would be "let your life speak".
