This was the first time that I stayed in accomodation arranged through AirBnB, and I was very impressed by the experience. Helena was the perfect hostess, going out of her way to make me feel at home. Although I am generally a reserved person, I felt at ease talking to her, and she gave me useful tips as to where to go in Oxford for the day that I stayed in the city. The bed was comfortable, and the house was in a quiet neighbourhood (with the exception of passing trains, though this did not bother me). I would sincerely recommend a room at Helena's to anyone looking for a place to stay in Oxford.
Thank you Jonathan, Im glad you liked your stay! I really enjoyed our discussions. Best H
Helena is a great hostess: very generous, warm, and easy-going about the quirks of travelling (early arrivals and departures, changing plans) and gave lots of great advice about getting around Oxford. Helena's house is very comfortable, sociable and inclusive, which suited me well. Helena provided a range of healthy breakfast choices, tea or coffee as needed and I was very grateful to be invited to share some home cooked meals with a glass of wine and the good company of Helena and other guests. It was great to be welcomed into a home and I had a very pleasant stay with Helena.
Although my stay was a short one I felt truly welcome in Helena's home. She is a thoughtful and accommodating host and ensured my stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. The house is a beautiful home reflecting the cultured life of its inhabitants- like Oxford itself a mix of the traditional and the new!
- it truly felt like staying with a friend. I had the single room at the top of the house with a bathroom also on this floor for guest use. I would recommend Helena and her home without reservation- I will definitely hope to stay with her again when I'm next in Oxford.
Thank you Ghaziah! Best H
Helena is a lovely host, very generous and caring. Me, my husband and our 16 year old son had five days of a very English living in a very special house and town. I can very much recommend this bed and breakfast-place. To go to the town, which is a a 25 minutes-walk, we preferred to hire bikes at Walton Cycles on Walton Road.
Helena is the most kind and considerate of hosts - made me feel right at home - even shared her supper with me on the first night & drove me to the shops next morning. Everything about her house is a delight. The room was small but had everything at hand, lovely soap & towels..Bed comfortable, bathroom spotless. Can't recommend this site highly enough.
Absolutely fantastic place and host. Very comfortable. Great location.
Helena is very nice and welcoming person. She responded to my query swiftly and very understanding (because of my last min request). I feel very comfortable staying there for a night and the room is fabulous. Highly recommended.
I had a really good experience at Helena's. I'm very glad to have stayed there I enjoyed it honestly. I even got to see her artwork and her neighbours too which was great. Helena is a warm and nice person, and the house is amazing. The room is not big (I had only one rucksack as luggage), but it's fine for sleeping in. There's nice light in the morning. Location wise is ideal, like 30 min walk from town and 5 min walk from Summertown shops, many buses otherwise. Walking down Woodstock road or by the canal, from and to town is just a pleasure! The accommodation was as the listing shows (the muesli and the coffee was lush!). It was a perfect stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
An inviting home and host, just off the Oxford Canal (one of my favorite walks in Oxford). Helena made the place feel like a home away from home. Americans might find the bedroom small, but I just needed it for sleeping (and the bed was comfy). Plus, Helena opens other parts of her home to visitors. So plenty of space. I'd return in a heartbeat.
I can't express how delightful this stay was.
Helena is extremely warm-hearted, friendly and wonderful. I'm really impressed with her creation and creative power. She is very kind to me in spite of my English is terrible.
It's brilliant that talking and having time with her and other people who are also wonderful and really pleasant. When I need to be alone, I could easily concentrate in a comfortable room. Everyday was happy while staying her house!
I'm looking forward to coming back and seeing her again!
Helena was a great guest! Delightful to communicate with and very thoughtful and respectful of the cottage. Welcome any time!
It was a pleasure to have Helena staying with me. She was the perfect guest, a very sociable, warm, friendly person, easy to communicate with and left the room spotless. No issues whatsoever, I would be very happy to welcome her back anytime.
It has been a great pleasure meeting Helena and David.
They are so easy and enthusiastic! I now know who to contact if we ever go to Oxford! So we hope to meet them some other time here in la Ciotat or in their home in England that seems to be very cosy!
Helena and Dave were lovely to have around. We shared interesting discussions and spent a heartwarming breakfast before they set of to explore Mani .
