Our Oxford hotel was featured in the Telegraph
“This simple, stylish 18th-century Oxford city centre hotel is a solid bet for a bed in the heart of the action. While there’s not much in the way of amenities, the location is hard to beat – just minutes by foot from top colleges and museums, it’s a brilliant boutique bolthole for busy travellers keen to see it all.”READ MORE

Luxury Lifestyle Magazine Hotel Review: Vanbrugh House Hotel, Oxford
“They don’t call it the “city of dreaming spires” for nothing. Oxford’s historic, honey-coloured architecture is beautiful, and its location just an hour from London makes it the perfect proposition for a romantic weekend away. The grand college buildings of its elite university all seem to have leapt straight off the pages of a Harry Potter book, drawing visitors from every corner of the world to its quaint streets.”READ MORE
Nice little boutique hotel, centrally located in a quiet area. Complimentary snacks, tea, coffee in room. Comfy beds and best bonus was Mustafa from the front desk staff. He was most ready and willing to help with any request, and at all times with a very friendly and a happy personality.

I love luxury stays with family and this hotel is perfect. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Our kids had a very enjoyable time there. Staff are very nice and they helped us with how to organise free time for our kids. Highly recommended!
Beautiful hotel in the centre of Oxford, great location with everything nearby, but very peaceful and quiet. The room was gorgeous, the staff very friendly and helpful. Great food and spotless rooms. Thoroughly recommended and we’ll definitely be returning.
Our stay at the Vanbrugh House Hotel was enjoyable. The hotel is located in the centre of Oxford, giving us the opportunity to explore Oxford right outside the front door. The staff were very helpful and courteous, and after a day of touring it was relaxing to have a glass of wine at the hotel.

The hotel suite is very nice and spacious. We love every detail in the room, especially the shower in the bathroom! The breakfast is also very good with nice service! Definitely will stay over again if we come back to Oxford!

The experience was superb from start to finish. Lovely deluxe room with private garden. Excellent for a special treat. The hotel is in a great location and Oxford has plenty of lovely coffee shops and restaurants to keep you nourished.
