“Lovely decorated house”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Vicky's house is very clean, cozy, and welcoming. Located in a quiet area of Oxford easily accessible either by bus or with a 10 min walk from the city centre. My room was pretty but very small (no closet); shared bathroom. Amazing breakfast with fresh fruit and home made bread. Vicky is very chatty and helpful (she even gave me great suggestions for my morning run). Payment only in cash.

The Terrace was a very good find. Vicky, interesting and interested, well travelled and well read, is a great host - helpful and prompt with enquiries before arrival. Good room, good shower, and good wifi connection. No problems with parking or shared bathroom - all worked out well. Breakfast was particularly nice - fun to have a little bit of everything: lovely fruit selection, breads, cooked food, cereals. Also my first coddled egg! The walk into town is fine, not too far, and the road well served by buses. A good option, especially as the central hotels can get so busy and expensive!

Reviewed 30 April 2014

We had a wonderful stay at The Terrance. We felt like home since we first arrived. Vicky, our host, is such an amazing lady; friendly and very helpful. She gave us a lot of information about the city. (and there are a map and Oxford newspaper available at the place.) Her house is also lovely decorated in British Floral style. Although The bathroom is shared and the double bed is a queen size bed, they are clean and very functional. The only thing we had a problem with is the stair; it is very steep, so you will have a hard time with it if you carry big luggages with you. Breakfast is also provided everyday by the host at anytime you want and It's amazingly fabulous. The house is located just 5 min walk from bus station which will take you to the center in just 15 min. Thank to Vicky and her place, Oxford is now our favorite city.
