Top 3 things to do in Oxford this Autumn

With summer pretty much over, our boutique hotel in Oxford is taking this as the perfect opportunity to start thinking ahead to the crisp autumn months. The thought of big cosy jumpers, crunchy leaves and bonfires, definitely makes us look forward to the colder weather. With so much to see and do near our boutique hotel in Oxford, we’re the perfect place to stay if you want a long luxury weekend away with a loved one. Read on as our hotel picks out the top 3 things to do this autumn in Oxford…

Head to the theatre

Our Oxford hotel is only a 2-minute walk away from New Theatre Oxford, so why not treat yourself to some tickets? Throughout Autumn there are loads of great acts appearing on stage, from Romesh Ranganathan and Harry Redknapp to Ant Middleton and even Lulu! Theatres are the perfect place to head for a date night, enjoy a romantic meal beforehand, then head to our plush and comfy rooms to kick back and relax when the night is over!

Visit The Oxford Artisan Distillery

Head to The Oxford Artisan Distillery (TOAD), conveniently located just 20-minutes from our boutique hotel in Oxford.  This is a distillery with a difference, as they don’t just brew one specific thing, instead they brew gin, vodka, whisky and even absinthe! Why not book yourself onto one of their tours and learn all about this special craft? There are two different tours available: standard, which shows you how the spirits go from grain to bottle, finishing with the opportunity to try some samples! Choose their gold package and you’ll have a tour with one of the founders, learn about the process of grain to bottle and at the end, you will enjoy an extended tasting session plus a large gin and tonic! Perfect to warm you up if it's chilly outside!

Indulge in chocolate at Blenheim Palace

Just a 20-minute drive from our Oxford Hotel brings you to Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Steeped in history, the palace and has lots of events and attractions taking place throughout the year.   But what if we told you one of the events taking place lets you enjoy chocolate for dinner? Something your mum always said you weren’t allowed!  That’s right, join William Curley, master chocolatier and patissier for an evening of chocolate! Upon arrival, you’ll be able to indulge in champagne and canapes, followed with a three-course dinner cooked by Curley, that has a taste of chocolate truffles and other based cocoa treats entwined!  The event takes place on 25th October and you can book tickets here.

Clare,

Melbourne, Australia

Lovely hotel in a wonderful central location. We could easily walk to most places of interest with many restaurants. We had booked a superior double, which was on the second floor and quiet as requested.

The staff were happy to help with our luggage. Standard of room excellent with a lovely bathroom and walk in shower.

Assistance pleasantly provided by helpful staff - good restaurants, parking, ice, taxis etc. Good breakfast choice included in tariff. Loved our stay and would certainly return.

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.

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

My husband and I came to Oxford to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived at the hotel all staff were very accommodating and friendly. We were kindly given a room that required no steps (The Sir John Vanbrugh Suite) given that I am heavily pregnant. In addition, we were given a welcome drink to celebrate our anniversary as well as a lovely card- a really nice touch especially given that it was so long ago since I'd mentioned it in our booking!

Breakfast the next morning was fantastic - really fresh ingredients and friendly staff. The location of the hotel is excellent. We used the park and ride option for parking which really was very easy and much cheaper than the multi storey.

Our room looked out onto the main street but noise definitely wasn't a problem. The best part of the room was either the very comfy bed or the enormous bath! Thanks to all staff for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable!

I recently spent one night at Oxford and since I'm not driving and I plan to take the train, I want to stay in a decent hotel at the city centre and close to train station. Vanbrugh House Hotel ticks all of the above.

Staff are super helpful and friendly, I arrived on the day with big snow and my train was cancelled so I have to get off at Didcot Parkway and take a bus. By the time I arrived, it was only 12 noon but the staff kindly check me in early. They also helped carried the luggage (together with me, of course) to go up the stairs.

The hotel was recently renovated and positioned as a boutique hotel, the size of the room is very okay as I'm travelling sole and it's very comfortable. Shower facilities are great so as the washroom amenities are very high quality. Breakfast, traditional English breakfast with unlimited cereal plus toasts was excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

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.


Jan,

Princes Risborough

What a fabulous hotel. The staff, location and rooms are excellent. The staff couldn't do enough to help and were very welcoming. Location is perfect for the Theatre, the new Westgate shopping centre and plenty of restaurant within a very short walk.

The rooms are beautiful and very clean. Loved the fact that anything in the rooms fridge was complimentary.


Donna,

Bedford

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.

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!


Cat,

Mount Prospect, Illinois

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.
