Lovely Private Room, Central Oxford

Apartment - Private room · Alan Bullock Close, Oxford, OX4 1AU, United Kingdom

We have a lovely private room in our clean modern quiet apartment. Very quiet location; bars/restaurants just around the corner; central Oxford only a few minutes walk away. Excellent transport links to London/airports, coaches stop right outside.

The Space

We have a very comfortable single guest room/study available in our lovely central Oxford apartment. The room is equipped with a single bed, new pillows and fresh linen, a good work desk, chair, shelves and drawers. The apartment is clean and modern with two bedrooms, a bathroom with full-size bath, a large combined dining and lounge area, and a new fully-equipped kitchen. There is free wireless internet (WiFi). And there are plenty of books and DVDs to keep you amused!

Guest Access

Guests are very welcome to use more or less the whole apartment. In addition to the guest bedroom, guests may also use the living room/dining room, the kitchen - and, of course, the bathroom. (The only room guests can't access is the master bedroom.)

The Neighborhood

The apartment is in an extremely central and convenient location, just off St Clements. The diverse restaurants and bars of East Oxford are only a few minutes away; and it's only a 10-minute walk from the apartment to the city centre. There are three excellent restaurants within thirty-seconds walk of the apartment (one Italian, one Indian, and the third specialising in seafood). Everything you need to enjoy your stay in Oxford!

The apartment is very quiet, set back off the main road overlooking Angel and Greyhound Meadow and the beautiful grounds of Magdalen College. At the bottom of the garden there's a footbridge over the canal that takes you into the meadow - perfect for a pleasant stroll (weather permitting!). You can even sample punting - that quintessentially Oxfordian pursuit - with punts available for hire less than five minutes walk from the apartment!

Getting around

The apartment has excellent transport links. There are 24-hour coaches to London and its airports that you can catch right outside the apartment. Similarly, buses to and from Oxford city centre and the train station are only a 60-second walk from the apartment.

Other Things to Note

We've both lived in Oxford for several years, and have been involved with the University as students and lecturers for just as long. As a result, we have really good knowledge of the city and the University, and we're eager to share it with you to ensure you get the most out of your stay!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wonderful time staying with Vanessa and John.

    The location is great: It was between a 10 and 30 min walk to the colleges in Oxford, the bus stops are right around the corner, and there are many restaurants and a grocery store within a five minute walk.

    The room was comfortable and fully furnished with a bed, night stand, reading lamp, desk, rolling chair, and clothing hooks.

    Vanessa and John provided excellent communication before and during my stay. They were very knowledgeable about the local community, gave accurate directions about how to get to various places within Oxford, and made wonderful suggestions about things to do and places to visit in the area.

    I had difficulty connecting to WiFi in the room (very weak signal), but many cafés and pubs in the area have complimentary WiFi access for customers.

    I would recommend staying with Vanessa and John.

  • Really great stay with John and Vanessa. They were very accommodating and the facilities they provided were to a very high standard! I was greeted with a nice cup of tea and a chat, which was also a massive bonus! Location is ideal in Central Oxford with lots of amenities close by and good access to the outskirts of Oxford. Highly recommended!

  • Vanessa and John were great hosts. They were both very friendly and accomodating, despite my arriving late and leaving early. The flat was lovely too, and I look forward to staying with them again soon.

  • I went to Oxford for 2 days for a conference and Vanessa and John were great hosts! Very friendly and accomodating and the flat was lovely too - very central and close to the city centre and also the main bus routes. It was perfect for my needs and I even got homemade museli for breakfast if I wanted. I would definitely recommend them. The price was also very reaosnable.

  • John and Vanessa are excellent hosts! They went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating at every turn. Their flat is in a great location--a perfect distance from the Oxford campus. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a room in Oxford.

  • John was extremely welcoming - after an overnight flight from NY he was ready to offer a cup of tea and help me settle in.
    I had a very relaxing stay in a perfect location close to the centre of Oxford.
    Highly recommended!

  • I stayed with John for one night, and it went very well. The flat is easy to find and extremely centrally located, and John was very helpful when I needed something printed out at the last minute. He was communicative ahead of my arrival and it all went very smoothly.

  • I was very impressed with how comfortable and easy my stay at John's in Oxford was. I arrived in Oxford after a long trip from the US and John had told me he would not be there until the evening, but he was able to get me a key, so I could get in without any troubles. They keep the apartment and the room very neat, and I had everything I could want for my stay.
    I was also really happy with the location; I was able to walk to the city center and to the Bodleian really easily, and there also are a number of cheap-ish (for Oxford at least..) places to eat on Cowley Rd., as well as some great places to go for a coffee. Finally their street is right next to a bus stop for coming to/from Heathrow or London - it could not have been more convenient. I will certainly remember this stay for the next time I find myself in Oxford!

    February 2014
  • John was a very kind host! The location is great, just few inutes from the bus stop to go to London city or to airports and just 10 minutes of walking from the city centre.The flat is nicely decorated, clean, comfortable and I had full access to the kitchen and fridge; it was like stay in my home. Highly recommended!

Environmental Geographer
I'm an environmental geographer, currently reading for my doctorate. I am Australian and live between Sydney and Oxford, spending a good deal of my time reading - either on the beach (Sydney), in very old libraries (Oxford), or researching at field sites in the Pacific. I share the apartment with my partner John, an academic lecturing in political and legal theory. Originally from Glasgow John has lived in Oxford for 11 years. He has a ridiculously good memory, knows way too much about cinema, and is just all round good fun.
