I don't think I got quite the same experience here as other people. Don't get me wrong, Heather House is a decent B&B, it just didn't quite resonate as highly with me. The room was fine, bathroom okay and breakfast fine. Perfectly okay. Nice, but (for me) not special.

Lovely traditional guest house. Spotlessly clean with the friendliest hosts. We were greeted by the teenage daughter who was very pleasant and when the owners returned they chatted and showed a real interest in our visit. The breakfast served was hot and well cooked, alongside freshly made toast. Cereal was also out to help yourself with orange juice. Our room...

Enjoyed our stay at Heather House. Friendly hosts, clean, comfortable room. We had a room at the back overlooking the garden so it was nice and quiet. The only thing missing was a mirror in the bedroom, needed to do hair and makeup while my husband was using the bathroom. Other than that, perfect. Delicious breakfast and great value for...

Heather House is in a great location - especially if you have a car - as driving into and out of the city centre can be quite a challenge! It's only about a 15 minute walk to the city centre, or there is a bus stop just outside the B&B and that will get you there in 5 minutes. Norman...

I do not know how many times I have stayed in Heather House, but again I spent most enjoyable few days in Oxford in January, this time on my own, and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and good service of the guesthouse. I have said earlier that it feels like coming to a second home when you go there, and I...

Perfect B & B in Oxford. Easy to find and an easy walk to town. Owners welcoming and warm. There is a cat, but for us it is a plus! Breakfast was typical and good. I was able to use the front room and the internet connection to complete some work on the morning we checked out. It is a...

Lisa greeted us with a cup of tea, and Norman was equally welcoming. Heather House is a few minutes walk to the Oxford colleges, and restaurants are nearby. We stayed two nights and will return to Heather House to spend longer in Oxford. When we left to Heathrow airport, we caught a bus directly to the airport just a few...

Travelling with three older kids we ended up using the family room for 4 plus an extra room and felt very pleased that we had such a good place to recover from our long haul flights. Very warm welcome and lovely rooms with comfortable beds and good showers. Plus great breakfasts to set yourself up for a day. Bus stop...

Contours Walking Holidays picked this B&B for us for our 2 day stay in Oxford. We felt right at home here. The house is charmingly old, with the noisy pipes and thin walls to go with it, the room and bathroom were a bit small, and the window looked on a brick wall, but everything we could want was there:...

We had an overnight stay at Heather House on our trek from Thames Head to London. Lisa was very welcoming and provided a pot of tea for us on arrival. Our room was very clean, well appointed and overlooked the garden. Lisa washed and dried some clothes for us which we were really in need of.
