    Central location.

    Breakfast was cancelled due to chef booking sick at 7am and although this was only continental breakfast, they could provide no cover?

    The room was scruffy! Dirty marks on the walls. Lamp broken! I’ve stayed here before and loved it but not staying again!

The hotel is quite small with only 22 guestrooms. The rooms are all modern but with a flare from the past present in the décor and furnishings. All of the rooms are luxurious. Guests have a choice of singles, doubles, the Sir John Vanbrugh Suite, the Nicholas Hawksmoor Room, the Oxford Union Suite, or the Vicarage Suite. Rooms include desks, TVs, free WiFi, coffeemakers, bathrobes, and are all individually decorated.

The Vanbrugh House Hotel has room service available around the clock. There is a breakfast served every morning for a fee also. The city of Oxford is full of restaurants with just about any kind of cuisine that is desired. Visitors can find great food at The Oxford Kitchen, Spiced Roots Restaurant, Oli’s Thai, Arbequina, and many other places.

This hotel is located right behind Main Street in Oxford so there is plenty to experience nearby. Guests can stroll along one of the rivers, visit one of many museums in the area, go shopping in numerous boutiques and shopping centers, or see a show at The New Theatre Oxford.

The Vanbrugh House Hotel in Oxford has an incredible history that dates back to the 18th century. A stay at this hotel is more than just accommodation, it’s an experience that takes guests back to another place and time.
