About
Certificate of Excellence
This historic home from home in the centre of Oxford was partly designed by John Vanbrugh in the 18th century. Vanbrugh is known for his bold and daring architectural style along with masterpieces such as Blenheim Palace (just 20 minutes away by car). Small and intimate yet intensely stylish, the Vanbrugh House Oxford Hotel’s 22 charming rooms and suites fuse eclectic design and comfort with enchanting historic features. 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.

Great location that is very centrally located. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is the bathroom was very small. The shower is a standup round shower which gives you very little room to move.

Clean, decent-sized, quiet room. Bathroom and amenities good (although for £265 I expected a bath) and fantastic central location, staff pleasant and helpful. Free water in (an oddly pungent!) minibar.

I don't remember offhand - we didn't need laundry done at this point in our trip. I doubt that a hotel this small would offer laundry services themselves, but I am confident they would be able to accommodate you somehow.
