Diane & Marc, (Mother & Son) have welcomed visitors to Oxford for years. Initially hosting students in our home then for a number of years running a successful Guesthouse. Our long experience in hospitality will help provide guests with a professional feel and an enjoyable stay. Cleanliness & Comfort are our first priority. We like to add some defining touches to our apartments and include those little things a visitor may forget to bring. When travelling, often time is short, we provide the information, basics and comfort so guests may maximise their time spent in Oxford for sightseeing, business and relaxation. Both of us have a passion for cooking, traveling, being outdoors & City breaks, Marc has an ongoing love affair with Iceland, this has resulted in many return trips for more adventures. Diane is an animal lover and spends a lot of time in Greece & southern France. Our hosting began small and in the intimacy of our own home, we enjoy meeting people from many different places and cultures and we are committed to making a visitors stay relaxing and enjoyable. It is a huge privilege for us both to continue welcoming visitors from all over the world to Oxford.
Why Marc chose Oxford
This location is an ideal base to discover Oxford City Centre and the surrounding area. The house is conveniently situated for attractions and scenery, such as Oxford University, Christchurch, the Thames, Folly Bridge, Hinksey Park, lake and an open air swimming pool. We have plenty of local amenities nearby including Grocery Stores, a Chemist, Post Office, Pubs & Restaurants. The Edwardian character of the House regardless of the new and contemporary furnishings speaks for itself, the clean tranquil decor and generous space mentioned above just has a lovely and special feel about it, We ourselves lived there for many years and have many fond memories.
What makes this House unique
Perhaps the biggest benefit for a guest who chooses one of our places for their trip is the professional service that we are able to provide. Having had many years experience in hospitality and property management we have the skills necessary to help meet the needs a visitor has when they are travelling. For example this includes remembering to provide small but essential items such as power adaptors and the ongoing maintenance of the fire prevention systems (alarms, doors, extinguishers, etc) by a professional company. We prefer to greet our guests at check-in, this allows us to explain all the information a guest will need about the property and Oxford, this also gives a visitor the chance to ask questions and allows for the best possible start to a trip. All of our linens are sourced out to a company and professionally laundered to a hotel standard.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.

Thank you for leaving us a 5 star review, I’m delighted that you liked our property and that you had such a good visit. Marc.
Great location, lovely property
We stayed here for my parent's anniversary weekend. It was perfect for what we wanted, lovely lounge space and huge kitchen. Parking was a little tricky but safe and secure.
It's 10-15 minute walk into the town centre. The house is cosy and great for a weekend getaway!
The owners were very helpful and prompt with any queries. Would definitely stay again! Thank you!!
What a lovely review for Inspire House, thank you! I’m delighted that you and your parents anniversary weekend spent staying in our place went so well. Diane & Marc.
We were working in Oxford and this property could not have been more welcoming and perfect. It was cosy yet spacious. Well stocked, clean, easy access to centre, lots of bathrooms. I needed an eye mask as not all bedrooms had black out blinds and mine had a skylight over the bed. But beds were Exceptionally comfy.
Thank you! I highly recommend this property.
Hello Kirsty, we are absolutely delighted that your time in our place went so well. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review for Inspire House, it is much appreciated. Diane & Marc.
Clean,stylish and convenient
The property was perfect for a get- together of retired women wanting to explore Oxford. Spotlessly clean throughout, with fresh white bedding and towels the property was equipped adequately for our needs.
Very much appreciated the Christmas tree and tasteful lights which added to the Seasonal feel of our stay.
We are absolutely delighted that you had such a good stay, thank you for taking a moment to leave such a lovely review it really is appreciated. Marc.
Perfect for a group!
Lovely home... few minor things and it could be stunning! Beds, bedding and towels all lovely and clean. Hot water very hit and miss in all but the main en-suite.
Thank you for taking a moment to leave a review I’m pleased that overall your experience of the house was a positive one. The main en-suite and the main bathroom have exactly the same heat source therefore I cannot understand what caused you to have an issue in one bathroom but not the other, having checked I can only see that if you are the first to use hot water for a while it can take a few moments for the hot water to reach the main bathroom simply because the main bathroom is a greater distance from the new hot water system.

Centrally situated. You can experience all that you would expect from a typical British neighbourhood such as corner shops, pubs, a chemist, chip shop and a post office. Further to this there is a local horse riding school, park with a swimming pool, lake and allotments. Perhaps you will feel that you're in Oxford just by looking out onto the university sports ground or by taking a short walk to the Thames/Isis where you can catch a glimpse of Oxfords historic spires.
