A charming hotel in historic Oxford, with breakfast, plus a three-course dinner and a bottle of wine

The Lowdown

A comfortable oasis a stone’s throw from the city centre, Oxford Spires Hotel fuses historic style with traditional yet modern design. Set in acres of tranquil parkland, just half a mile from the shops, restaurants and bars of Oxford itself, the hotel provides a picture-perfect setting for exploring this historic city.
Boasting an inviting spa with a heated indoor pool and a full menu of treatments, it’s easy to while away the day without leaving the comfort of the hotel. Beyond Oxford Spires Hotel’s manicured grounds, however, lies a city steeped in history.
Curious bookworms will delight in touring the famous grounds of Oxford University, home to scholarly alumni including JRR Tolkien, Stephen Hawking and rom-com hero Hugh Grant, and Bicester Village’s discounted designer boutiques are a 30-minute drive away. Come summer, take a boat along the River Thames or try your hand at Oxford’s tradition of punting.


Oxford Spires Hotel creates an elegant home from home environment, with comfy beds,
writing desks and heavy curtains to ensure sweet dreams.


With its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the grounds, Deacons Restaurant offers a delightful setting to accompany the mouth-watering menu of modern, Mediterranean cuisine.


Relax in Willows Leisure Club’s calm surroundings, and make the most of the fitness suite, heated indoor pool and full menu of spa and beauty treatments.


Set in acres of tranquil parkland on the banks of the River Thames, Oxford city centre is a short stroll along the river. Spend the day exploring the famous University of Oxford, whose iconic, sprawling grounds have played host to films including The Italian Job (1969), the Harry Potter films, The History Boys and the Stephen Hawking biopic, The Theory of Everything. Continue your education at the Pitt Rivers Museum, an awe-inspiring attraction housing the university’s archaeological collections, or take a 30-minute trip to Bicester Village for discount designer shopping.

The Place to Stay

A fantastic hotel set in its own grounds and within 15 minutes of Oxford town centre. Rooms were clean and equipped with iron. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food both at dinner and breakfast was excellent and didn’t break the bank. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great Hotel

We stayed here for one night. The staff were friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant for an evening meal and for breakfast. The food was excellent with a good selection and at a reasonable price. The room was clean and tidy with all the amenities needed. It was a little small but apart from that we can’t fault it. The spa was relaxing and worth a visit. The location is excellent to explore Oxford and only an easy 20 minute walk to the centre or 5 minute buss from outside the hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

A well needed break.

This was our second visit to this hotel. It disappointed, on the first night only.
Our room was a little small for three nights for two of us, but Claire sought us on the following morning. She not only apologised profusely for the room error and immediately organised for us to occupy a far superior room (43) for the rest of our stay.
She could not have done enough and we thank her so much.
Please make sure she thanked by us. Also the staff, cleaning, bar, room.
Thank you all so much.
