Can't fault this hotel. Luxurious, relaxing stay, and in a very convenient location too. The bathroom was absolutely stunning with a shower, 2 baths, and a TV too. Staff were very friendly and professional.

Attractive town house, boutique hotel and the central location is great. Top floor room facing St Michael Street overlooked the beautiful Oxford Union building and garden. It also has the bonus of being on a quiet road - almost pedestrianised - with only a few vehicles, so a quiet night's sleep. Well situated for the Oxford theatres. The only downsides were the lack of parking, lift, and air con, otherwise 5 stars. But overall the room was lovely, spacious and felt very cosy. The bathroom was spotless. Breakfast in the nicely decorated basement was good and in the courtyard looked inviting had it been warmer. Would happily stay again.

Fantastic night away for my husbands birthday. Very clean, cosy and comfortable rooms. Staff lovely and very helpful and a great breakfast would recommend this hotel to anyone. The personal touches were fantastic he has a birthday card and fudge as a gift on arrival which was completely unexpected and the hotel helped us arrange parking and recommend the most delicious restaurant.

This is a small, simple hotel that does what it does extremely well. Spotlessly clean, attractively decorated, helpful and friendly staff. The full English breakfast was really very good too. But it cost me £250 for one night's stay. I could have stayed at the Randolph or the Malmaison for less, both of which have many more facilities (bars, restaurants, comprehensive room service etc.) That said, I booked just a couple of days before my stay so it may be that better deals are available at other times.

We have just returned from a great couple of days in Oxford. We stayed in the Vicarage Suite at Vanbrugh House with its own private garden, huge four-poster bed and truly amazing bathroom. I have to say it is the best room we have every stayed in. The location is perfect if you want to be at the heart of the city and the staff at the hotel were excellent.

Highly recommend.

Room Tip: The Vicarage Suite is worth the additional cost if you are looking to spoil yourself
