Frequently Asked Questions

Is there on-site parking?

Our boutique hotel in Oxford is dedicated to being kinder to the environment, which means we do not have an onsite car park. Instead, we encourage our guests to utilise greener methods of transport, such as the Park & Ride – the nearest is Seacourt. This offers overnight parking (£4 for 24 hours).

The nearest public car park is Worcester Car Park which is just about 5-minute walk from our Oxford hotel. This costs £28/24 hours (Sunday to Friday) and £35/24 hours on Saturdays. There is a night charge from 8 pm to 8 am from £4.

Are you children-friendly ( cots)?

We have two travel cots. Young children are allowed to stay in the same rooms as their parents as long as they are happy to sleep in the same bed [no rollaway beds]. There is an additional charge of £30 per child.

What’s the closest train station?

Oxford Train Station is just a 10 minute walk from our boutique hotel.

What are your check-in/ out times?

Check-in – 3pm, Check out – 11am

We aim to be as flexible as possible, if you’d like to check in earlier, or check out later than please contact the team and we will see what we can do. Charges may apply.

Can I drop my luggage off before check-in?

You can leave the luggage with us and we will place it in your room ready for check-in, we can also call you once the room is ready.

What are your breakfast serving times?

Each morning we serve a continental breakfast using the best local produce.
