Only stayed at Heather House one night. However, I could feel that Lisa and Norman were very caring person. They would help you everything that you need. The room was clean. Homemade breakfast was delicious. Great location. Only took me 15 minutes walk to the center of Oxford. For those people who don't want to walk, there is a bus... More

The accommodation is comfortable and clean also it is a holder house with some (typical) issues e.g. with the water pipes. However, it is not "highest" standard but the very friendly atmosphere makes up for it and the owner react to guest's wishes, where ever possible. Indeed, I would stay in Heather House again.

From the warm welcome, to ready assistance with local information and transport needs, delicious made to order breakfast and extra attention to parking needs (with non-intrusive construction underway), Heather House assures return business and word of mouth recommendations - no doubt!

Our hosts Lisa and Norman could not have been more welcoming, accommodating and helpful in every way. By the time we arrived in Oxford after the long haul from Australia I was really unwell with a virus and Lisa was instrumental in arranging a doctor's appointment at very short notice where we would have struggled to organise this ourselves. We... More

Having read reviews on Trip Advisor I stayed at Heather House overnight before a job interview last week. The B&B's location is easily reachable by foot from the city centre and is very close to a bus stop which would make it very accessible if you didn't fancy walking. Everything about my stay was fantastic; from the warm welcome, to... More

We arrived at midday and were able to park our 2 cars at the B&B saving a fortune on parking fees. Our room was ready so we were given keys and made ourselves a cuppa before walking into Oxford centre. (Plenty of buses going past too if you don't want to walk). Heather House is spotlessly clean, the welcome is... More

I had an enjoyable couple of nights stay at Heather House. Excellent location within a very short walking distance from centre of Oxford. Norman and Lisa were very helpful and provided a clean, comfy B&B. lovely breakfast, made to own requirements. The only downside to my visit was the renovation works being done on the building. My second days breakfast... More

Norman and Lisa are very helpful and welcoming hosts at this wonderful establishment where we have stayed on a number of occasions. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable and the breakfast, usually cooked by Lisa, is excellent. Heather House is approximately 25 minutes walk from the centre of the fascinating city of Oxford and a regular bus services... More
