I read the reviews on this page and was not disappointed.
I stayed in a second floor single room with private bathroom and private restroom (45 GBP/ night). The bathroom was on the ground floor, which I didn't mind.
The staff and the landlady were very courteous and helpful. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The English breakfast was good.
It took around 10 minutes on foot to get to Magdalen Bridge in the city center.

All-over I think Heather House is very good value for money

For this traveler from America, the Heather House was well located, solicitous, clean, and -- particularly helpful for a lone traveler -- friendly and informative. When scheduling changed me, mid-stay, to a smaller room (I was informed in advance), I loved it perhaps even more. I valued the proximity to the school, the buses, and to restaurants and stores.

Room Tip: THe rooms are simple but complete with thoughtful touches--and quite comfortable.

Recent reviews of the Heather House had raised my expectations, but I was disappointed.

My problem was with the stained carpets. They should be replaced.

Vivian and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine. It was very nice to have a computer with Internet access available.

The bus is convenient. There was road construction during our visit so we didn't walk into town.

Restaurants are within a 10 minute walk from the Heather House, but we did much better eating in the city center.

If you want a pleasant, traditional B&B then Heather House fulfils that role very well. It's clean, quiet, only a 15 minute walk from Oxford city centre, offers free wi-fi and use of a computer, free off road parking, a comfortable guest lounge that is well stocked with books and maps and a decent breakfast that will set you up for the morning - all for about half the price you will pay for a hotel in the city centre. Vivian, the landlady, ensures you have everything you need and offers a wealth of information about the city. And a special mention goes to Gosha who serves the breakfast as she is exceptionally pleasant and helpful. My only criticism in that the single bed in the twin/family room needs replacing as the springs have seen better days! Vivian says she will look into this. All in all, a nice, convenient place to stay at a reasonable price. We would definitely stay again if visiting Oxford.
