Vanbrugh House Hotel, Oxford
Oxford Perfection!
For me, the Vanbrugh was perfect! The staff is very friendly and welcoming! Every evening local legend and former Oxford tour guide Sandra arrives to sip a glass of wine and offer concierge-like service. I travel into Oxford on the bus with my luggage and the Vanbrugh is very near the station making the walk no problem. I am attending the Säid Business school which is also only 6 minute walk from the hotel. The bonus is the hotel is set near the center of town on a quiet street without traffic. Bill's restaurant located next door is charming, modern, farm to table serving a delicious breakfast and hip atmosphere. Super happy and looking forward to staying their on my next 15 trips!!

Oxford gem for a night or two
Tucked right in the middle of town, this was exactly what I'd hoped for. A quaint little place - rooms were modest but big enough for one (not much in the way of closets). The staff was very pleasant, welcoming and helpful.

Great Oxford Location for a Professional Meeting
Ideal place to stay for a couple when participating in a meeting at one of the nearby Oxford Colleges.

Nice Hotel Centrally Located
Great hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast. The only downside is it is a historic property and therefore has no the rooms are a little warm and stuffy if the daytime temps get above 80 F.

Very Good8.0
Highly Recommended
The staff here was warm, welcoming and extremely accommodating. The location in Oxford was perfect, right in the center of town, and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. We like old things, and staying in this lovely space with much of it’s 18th century architecture intact was really special. We happened to be traveling during unusually hot weather for the UK and I was worried about no AC but the staff provided lots of fans and we were fine. Morning breakfast was delicious, the hotel scrupulously clean, beds very comfortable. If stairs are a problem, this is probably not the place for you, but we loved it!
