We stayed with our 4 children at Joyce's house for one night. The house was lovely, Joyce gave us a great welcome and made a delicious breakfast. A great place to stay. It would have been good to have been able to stay for longer.

We enjoyed our stay with Joyce this weekend, she was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were extremely comfortable, clean and spacious, with room to relax and enjoy a cup of tea after our sightseeing. Breakfast was good with the added bonus of homemade bread! Summertown is a perfect location to visit the centre and surrounding area, with lovely pubs and a choice of restaurants all in walking distance. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay. The house if sunny, clean, and comfortable. It is close to the bus station and it is also very quiet. We enjoyed the breakfast. The host/hostess also allowed us to leave the luggage there for later pickup. We highly recommend this place for a family or an individual.
