Susan and Neil are friendly hosts with good advice on things to do and see in and around Oxford. The room is comfortable with a nice view of the garden. I would recommend their place.

Had a fantastic stay here. Nice room in a quiet location. Not far from Headington, where you can find many restaurants and bars. Also, a short bus ride to city centre, which is full of stuff to see and do. Susan and Neil are fantastic hosts. Very accommodating and extremely helpful without being intrusive. Great place!

I stayed two months with Susan and Neil as I came over to Oxford for academic work. To put it in a nutshell: Staying with Susan and Neil was the best I could have imagined. Their house is absolutely lovely and very clean. Susan and Neil are very kind and helpful people, which did everything to make my stay as pleasant as possible. I always felt very welcomed and safe. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable, too. Therefore, I highly recommend staying with Susan and Neil if you come to Oxford and I want to thank them for making my stay such a nice experience!

Lovely comfortable room in a very quiet location close to JR hospital. Susan and Neil were very nice and accommodating. There was always the most delicious home made muesli for breakfast, with fresh fruit every day, which we loved. Never had any issues with noise, it's a very quiet house, and extremely clean and well maintained. Hosts provide you with lots of privacy.
