To stay at Vanbrugh House Hotel is to live at the heart of Oxford, past and present.
Our name is a tribute to English architect and dramatist Sir John Vanbrugh (1664-1726), designer of Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard.There are echoes of the hotel’s own 18th century heritage in the combination of highly-polished service and homeliness.
Each of our 22 rooms are unique and each of our guests is addressed by their name. Eclectic furnishings, bringing together Georgian with Arts and Crafts, matches our passion for accommodating unique individuals.
