Vanbrugh House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2017

Beautiful hotel with friendly staff and an excellent central location. We can’t wait to return to Oxford and thoroughly recommend this hotel. Having arrived early, staff were more than happy to help us with a sightseeing map. Hotel is ideal base for exploring the historic city centre. We loved reading the history behind this unique hotel too.

Room Tip: Clean and very cosy room. Can’t fault it.

Well located with easy access to everything Oxford has to offer. Very good staff who all try hard to make the guest feel welcome.
Although the restaurant is in the basement, the decor and lighting gave it a pleasant light ambience. Well prepared food cooked from fresh products. Excellent waiting service. Well laid out breakfasts either continental or full English.
If you are a guest who likes quiet, perhaps the bedrooms at the rear of the building are best. It is a listed building, so there is no lift and sets of stairs. Bear this in mind if you have heavy luggage or difficulties in climbing stairs.
The rooms on the top floor are tighter on space (to be expected as they are near the roof line. We had number 27 which was fine.
If we return to Oxford, the Vanbrugh will be our base again.

Room Tip: Number 27 - not the biggest room, but good for low noise.

The hotel is ideally situated: a short walk from the station and right in the heart of the city. The hotel is quite quirky with separate doors into what must have been separate houses. We stayed in a suite which was beautifully appointed with the most amazing ensuite bathroom I've ever seen!
All the staff are friendly and very helpful. A question I sent by email prior to our planned visit was answered within half an hour with further offers of help. The whole place was spotless with a really elegant feel about it.
The hotel has no private car parking, which is the main reason why we went by train. The hotel does not do ecening meals, which gives the opportunity to explore the many restaurants just a short walk away,
For those wanting a luxurious stay, aim for the Vicarage Suite. It's not inexpensive but really worth it for a special occasion.

Room Tip: Suites are very well appointed.

Clean, smart room and bathroom and good quality breakfast. Hotel very central. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not cheap, bedroom and public rooms quite small and no parking, but Oxford is an expensive city and not car friendly, so this is to be expected.

Exceptionally convenient location, almost too convenient (so close to everything we needed) - bang in the centre! Lovely, clean rooms and fantastic service, great weekend all round. Very quiet as well, despite being close to the road.
