I've spent a long time trying to find a hotel in Oxford to come at a decent budget and finally found the one. Very clean. Quality decor and loads of touches in the hotel that make it stand out from the rest. 100% will be coming back again!

Immaculate room, high spec finish, very friendly staff, and really good English breakfast. Staff also helpful and informed in suggesting suitable restaurants. Location for accessing city is good. Maybe looks a tad ordinary on the outside but inside it all great. I highly recommend this place.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip. The staff were lovely and the facilities were great. The room was comfortable and modern. The breakfast selection was fantastic for both continental and cooked. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely come here again.

Stayed in this hotel last Saturday for one night. I was so impressed by the service - nothing was too much trouble. Lovely quiet room, very clean and a lovely touch having biscuits and complimentary soft drinks. Would highly recommend and I would certainly stay here again. Very comfortable beds.

Beautifully done B&B. Amazing breakfast (they even provided me with a vegan option). Friendly, helpful staff. Great location (15 mins walk in to town). Lovely rooms, the complementary crisps, soft drinks and snacks are a nice touch. Just make sure if you book the 'Superior King' room that you don't get put in to the normal one in the basement!!...

I loved the tiny room I had because it felt like everything was at my finger tips! Very pleasant stay here and in a location close to the adorable heart of the city. Walking distance to everything with a friendly staff.

We stayed here as part of our weekend away visit. It looked like one of the nicer places to stay with great reviews and we weren't disappointed! My husband and I stayed in one of the more expensive executive rooms as a treat and it was amazing. The room was clean, contemporary designed and the little added extras such as... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Oxford Townhouse Hotel. It was an easy walk to the center of Oxford, with the gorgeous Christ Church being particularly nearby. We love staying in hotels that allow us to go out to dinner at night and not be in a car. It was also a rare find to have an on-site car... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Oxford Townhouse is a new hotel opened in February 2016. It is designed specifically for those who look for hotel-type facilities, such as air conditioning, but are reluctant to spend money on features they do not need. With only 15 rooms we are small enough to appreciate you as an individual but large enough to provide a reception service from 07:00 to 22:30. Throughout the design our emphasis has been on magnifying natural light using a repetitive colour palette of whites, beige, soft greys and cool blues with the occasional use of darker earthy shades of charcoal, brown, navy and black to create visual interest. We have tried to use natural materials from ceramic, wood and stone to tactile linen, wool and felt. Window treatments are simple and pared back to let in as much light as possible. We have three types of room, with 2 singles, 8 classic double/twin rooms and 5 superior double rooms. All rates include complimentary English breakfast and on-site car parking. Standard Room Facilities En-suite shower rooms Air conditioning Mini bar with complimentary soft drinks Laptop safe Electronic door locks Free Wi-Fi Large-screen LED SmartTV Hair-dryer USB charging points Large full-length mirror Tea & coffee making facilities Superior Room Facilities Our Superior Rooms are larger, offer all the standard facilities and the following additions: Easy chairs Desk and chair King-size bed Nespresso machine Rain showers Although our hotel is new, it is housed in 2 late-Victorian houses without a lift. We have 3 floors of rooms and breakfast is in the semi basement and additionally there are 8 steps to the front door. Although we can offer assistance with luggage we are not a full-service hotel so you need to take into account the potential logistical difficulties when you book. ... more   less
