    Very convenient location in the centre of Oxford. Lots of character to the building. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very quiet and very clean

    Didn’t think that it was especially good value for money, but then hotels in Oxford all seem to be expensive compared to other places that we have been. We did not book breakfast, but if you had it was taken in the partner restaurant (a chain) next door.

    Frustrating stay at this property. We a booked Superior Double room for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We called on route only to be informed that the room we had booked was not available & they only had a twin bed room. Only member of staff was working & we were offered a breakfast token...hmm. £259 for one night. Absolute joke.

About

Overview

In the very heart of Oxford is the Vanbrugh House Hotel. Within just a few minutes' walk of the world-famous University of Oxford, this hotel is beautiful inside and out and has the character of the surrounding area spread throughout its entire footprint.

The hotel is quite small with only 22 guestrooms. The rooms are all modern but with a flare from the past present in the décor and furnishings. All of the rooms are luxurious. Guests have a choice of singles, doubles, the Sir John Vanbrugh Suite, the Nicholas Hawksmoor Room, the Oxford Union Suite, or the Vicarage Suite. Rooms include desks, TVs, free WiFi, coffeemakers, bathrobes, and are all individually decorated.

The Vanbrugh House Hotel has room service available around the clock. There is a breakfast served every morning for a fee also. The city of Oxford is full of restaurants with just about any kind of cuisine that is desired. Visitors can find great food at The Oxford Kitchen, Spiced Roots Restaurant, Oli’s Thai, Arbequina, and many other places.

This hotel is located right behind Main Street in Oxford so there is plenty to experience nearby. Guests can stroll along one of the rivers, visit one of many museums in the area, go shopping in numerous boutiques and shopping centers, or see a show at The New Theatre Oxford.

The Vanbrugh House Hotel in Oxford has an incredible history that dates back to the 18th century. A stay at this hotel is more than just accommodation, it’s an experience that takes guests back to another place and time.
