A plush boutique hotel in a central location, with top quality service and spacious rooms.
Despite being located right in the very heart of Oxford, this new boutique hotel is in a quiet spot and spread over two buildings to provide plenty of space. Vanbrugh House has a sleek understated look, with exposed stone walls, grey painted wood-panelling and fine quality linen, but don't be fooled into thinking it lacks character; this luxury hotel is set in buildings that date back to the 17th century, and retains high ceilings and exposed Georgian fireplaces in some of the superior rooms. Each of the 22 bedrooms are unique but all have a big TV, posh mini-bar and speedy wi-fi. Go for the superior option and you even get your own private garden. There's a restaurant in the basement serving fine, locally sourced food with french windows that open out onto a secret garden, wound around with wisteria. And yet, when you step out of this quiet haven, you are still right in the middle of the city. Magic.
