Wonderful!

5 of 5
Thoroughly recommended! The apartment was comfortable, spotless, and extremely well equipped. There was tea, coffee, olive oil, salt and pepper, dishwasher and laundry tabs, plentiful pans and utensils, loads of toilet roll, leaflets on the local area, alarm clocks, laundry baskets, a high chair and travel cot for our baby, an extension cable, even sellotape - everything you could possibly need! The location was also perfect, in a pleasant and quiet close set back from the Woodstock road, an easy 10 minute bus ride into Oxford town centre with regular buses and the stop only a minute or two away. Check-in and out was easy, with a lock box and code to get the keys, so no need to coordinate with the owner, who was nonetheless very helpful with a couple of minor queries. Next time I’m in Oxford I’ll definitely stay here again!
