We enjoyed our stay in Ian's flat. It was extremely convenient for Oxford and had a delightful short cut along the riverside into Oxford (13 minutes walk). He was easy to communicate with and the layout of the flat was good, easy secure parking there was an added bonus.
Great location, spacious flat, and with secure bike parking for our rental bikes (a bargain from Baintons). Surprisingly quiet for a block of flats. Two good size bedrooms, one ensuite but the shower wasn't working. The owner responded quickly and hopefully it will be fixed by now. A small spend on the flat would make a big difference. Mismatched cutlery and crockery, sad pillows, and a sheet that wouldn't stay on were some of the niggles. That said, I would still choose to go back. The settee and beds were comfortable, the flat was quick to heat, and it was just so well located for visiting the Oxford colleges and attractions.
Ian's place is a spacious ground floor apartment in a lovely and quiet complex, close to the centre of Oxford. We had plenty of room for the four of us and it was great for the kids to have some space to spread out and play. The apartment was warm and clean and we had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals. The location was great. With the on site parking, we didn't need to drive during our stay in Oxford, easily walking into the town centre within 10 - 15 minutes. I imagine it is even nicer in summer. Ian was quick with replies and gave us a friendly welcome when meeting us at the apartment.
Modern, well-equipped two-bedroom apartment ideally situated for visiting Oxford. The apartment has a private parking space in which to leave your car, and then the whole central area of Oxford including all the museums, galleries, libraries, shops and university colleges can be easily accessed on foot.
The kitchen has plenty of working space, and is equipped with a clothes washer/drier, while the salon/dining area is particularly spacious, and has a French window leading to a grassy area.
The apartment is in a very quiet and secure area of the city. Comfortable beds, fast WiFi, central heating and plenty of hot water. Highly recommended!
This was a really nice spot to base ourselves for a visit to Oxford. About a 10 minute walk to the town centre (via the bridge), there's also the option of the local pub for food and drink if you want to stay even more local. It's close to the river, and there are nice walks along there too.
It's not just a good location, the apartment is great too. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, TV, wifi, fully equipped kitchen. The beds were comfy (at least, the one I tried was...), and as it's in a quiet apartment complex, there was no trouble getting a good night's sleep.
Our host couldn't have been more helpful, and was always prompt to reply to queries in the run up to our stay.
I'd definitely stay again, and have already recommended the place to a friend.
