The space

Lovely room in heart of trendy Jericho, Oxford with an old French double bed, 185cm long so slightly shorter than the usual 190cm but extremely comfortable and a top quality mattress. The room is usually rented for a minimum of one week but gaps of a few days can be filled in!) and is cleaned at least weekly with bed linen changed. Bathroom is private and not at all big (see photos)! ...but the shower has unlimited hot water, there are shelves for your creams and lotions etc It is tasteful, efficient, easy to keep clean (marble walls) and nice and warm in winter with a heated towel rail, washbasin, antique mirror and white WC. Your room has a double bed, 19th Century French, a wardrobe, antique desk, drawers, digital TV with headphones, WiFi. All bills included.

Guest access

Self-service breakfast and full use of fully equipped kitchen. There is a washing machine with drier, ironing board etc

Interaction with guests

This is pretty much up to you...some people become involved in the family side of life in Jericho and others prefer to stay quiet and private but there is always a good interaction in the kitchen area.

Other things to note

There is a special filtered water tap so you can re-fill your bottle. I have a hair dryer and shampoo/conditioner for you if required.

Everyone expected to behave extremely well! In fact, I like guests to feel at home but to respect the house and any other guests. Also they need to be clean and tidy up after themselves if they use the kitchen. I clean the kitchen and bathrooms very frequently so they are always fresh.

Alison was a wonderful host. She was very friendly and hospitable and made me feel very welcome. She was able to accommodate me when I needed to check in early as well. She even made me a cup of tea! The house is very cute and homey, making it a wonderful place to come back to every night. The kitchen was not only available to use but stocked with bread, milk, fruit, etc. The bedroom is small but just fine for one person. It is up on the third floor though, so be prepared to carry your luggage up (although Alison was kind enough to help me out). It was very cozy and had a radiator, fluffy duvet, and electric heating pad, which all contributed to a great night's sleep every night. The all-in-one bathroom/shower may take getting used to for some people, but it was fine for me. It is a lovely home and I really enjoyed staying here. Alison is very open and easy to talk to and such a great host. While talking I mentioned that I liked animation and she was so kind as to lend me a DVD she had enjoyed on the subject. She even brought a little TV into my room so I could watch it before bed! Thanks Alison -- it was great!

My host ALISON welcomed me like a long-lost relative including a much appreciated help with my luggage going up stairs to "my" blue attic room. She went out of her way to be responsive to my needs and to provide a warm, safe and comfortable pied-a-terre. She also introduced me to some typical British shops and treats. She even toured me to a few important spots only known to the locals. All in all, it was a wholesome debut to my Airbnb experience. THANK YOU, ALISON. P.s. I loved my shower head's strong water pressure and the automatic light on the staircase. I loved all the special breakfast offerings. Sincerely, Maria

Response from Alison And Fred:
This guest had a booking for over one week, she was out from morning to night (as far as I could gracefully tell) and had plenty of opportunity to discuss any issues or misunderstanding in the room or services she had expected. I asked her several times but she said nothing except that everything was fine. After the fees and commission, the payment I receive for the room works out at less than Pnds45/day which I think cannot be beaten in the whole area and makes it extremely good value!! Furthermore, in the basic descriptor it is made very clear that the there is a 'small private, wetroom'. In the greater description the listing explains (quote): Bathroom is private and not at all big (see photos)!

My stay at Alison's Central Oxford Room was an absolute dream. Alison greeted me as I arrived after a very long trip and offered me tea and toast and made me feel perfectly refreshed after my travels. The room was wonderful, with its incredibly comfortable bed and cozy cottage feel. I slept like a dream. The room is located in the heart of Oxford, a short walk from everything to do, but on a lovely, quiet street perfect to come back to at the end of a day's adventures. Alison was a most gracious host and offered some beautiful things to explore and experience while in Oxford, all the while making sure I had everything I needed to rest and be refreshed while staying at her home.

Alison was a wonderful host and the place is as others describe. Great location, easy walk anywhere centrally, and the neighborhood has a number of restaurants and cafes. I was working all week and this was the perfect spot to base myself.

Our guests are very important to us and we like to respond quickly and positively to on the spot issues and to deal with anything that is not as you had expected or to cater for your particular needs as best we can. We all really enjoy the interesting people who pass through our house and many of them return, which is particularly nice and indeed most gratifying.
Much of my time is spent in the Algarve as I have a daughter farming there and I like to help. We are shortly going to be putting some rooms on Airbnb and there so look out for them!
