Excellent. Just what was needed!
A lovely warm welcome from Vicky and her gorgeous dogs. A sweet cosy “shabby chic” bedroom with a lovely view over her colourful garden. A shared bathroom but no problem and the treat of a delicious breakfast cooked by Vicky who seemed like a long lost friend rather than a land lady.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
it was a very small room in a three bedroomed home. We had to share the bathroom with the owner and another guest. Far too expensive for what it was and not close to Oxford centre.
