About
Description

From wooden beams to panelled walls and exquisite fireplaces each of our 22 beautiful hotel rooms houses an original feature of the building. This chic, individually run boutique hotel in Oxford, is intimate, relaxed and refreshingly informal. Our discreet and personalised service allows you to unwind and feel at home. In our rooms enjoy complimentary high speed Wi-Fi, Smart TVs along with Nespresso coffee machines, rainfall showers and fine Egyptian cotton bed linen for a beautiful night’s sleep. Less
