8.0.Very Good.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    Vanbrugh House Hotel is right at the heart of Oxford. Very convenient for out of town traveller's by coach or train. Both coach and train stations are within minutes of walking distance. All the local attractions are literally just around the corner... We had a very pleasant stay. Esp appreciate the pleasant staff. I rate it with 4 stars for two reasons. One is the sharp corners of the furniture. I wasn't careful enough and left with a couple small cuts in the legs. The staff did warned me ahead of time. The other reason is the parking if you have a car. Expect to add a few more quids to your hotel cost expectation for overnight parking. You need to park your car at a nearby car park, within 5 minutes walk. The 24hr parking is £34. Not a bad hotel. Highly recommended.

    A historic building (300 years old) but comfortably modern in the room and features. Only drawback: no AC on the hottest day of the year.

    Superb from start to finish

    A true gem of a hotel. Ours was a faultless stay. Welcoming and engaging staff, the room was large, well equipped and charming. Located in the heart of Oxford, we're already planning our return for the Christmas market.

    Great location & nice rooms, but a bit noisy

    the hotel is in a brilliant location, and even though no parking available there are several car parks very near. the one member of staff that we dealt with was very helpful & pleasant. it is a gorgeous old building that has been converted into a hotel, so was appreciative that there were restrictions to what they could do when converted into a hotel. However, we found the first room we were in, while a great size, clean & all the necessary -- it was musty. we stayed a 2nd night later in the week, and this room was lovely & had access to a private terrace. again only a slight thing but you could hear everything -- we had a couple making the most of a romantic night away above us (need i say more) & then what sounded like a hen party arriving VERY early the next morning in the room next to us.

    Excellent hotel and good value for money

    A perfect location for central Oxford and the university, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Room was serviced and towels changed daily - in fact my only suggestion would be to encourage guests more positively to re-use towels.

    Excellent!

    Amazing value for money, right in the centre of Oxford. Concierge was super helpful recommending local restaurants and bars. Excellent service. Breakfast hampers were delicious. Not a single complaint will definitely be staying again.

    Really nice hotel, thin walls

    Very nice hotel in a great location! We stayed in the suite. Staff were friendly and always on hand. Room was tidied well each day, water, hot drink options were restocked. Really nice stay. Only one potential downside, the walls. The walls are really thin meaning you can hear other guests/staff. The extent of this really depends on how loud the other guests are, although I should note the guests weren’t being excessively loud, the sound was just not buffered at all. It was particularly bad when people were coming and going and talking in the hallways. This is no fault of the hotel, as guess the building is old or protected or something so the walls cannot be changed/improved upon but the amount of noise definitely impacted our stay.

    Vanbrugh House Hotel

    Excellent hotel right in the center of Oxford. Clean room and friendly staff. Really easy to get to from Redbridge park and ride on the 300 bus. Little bit of Street noise in the morning but that isn't the hotels fault and we were right next to the street on the first floor. Would definitely recommend a stay here!
