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

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

Excellent location - convenient to restaurants and downtown Oxford. The owners Norman and Lisa were very kind and accommodating to our family. They offered gluten free bread for breakfast which was a very big deal to my son and I who are gluten sensitive. Thank you!

We stayed at the Heather House just for few days, and it was delightful. The hosts Norman and Lisa were very helpful and kind and their B&B was cosy and well connected to the centre of the city! If I come back to Oxford, I'll stay here again!

Time and again I have stayed at Heather House and I can't recommend this little B&B enough. It is very clean, warm and with free Wi-Fi. Norman and Lisa are so very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts are included and delicious and it's right near the Cowley Road for going out in the evening.
