Recommended place to stay:

Cotswold Lodge Hotel

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

An imposing Victorian mansion ten minutes’ walk from the centre of Oxford, this is a great choice for those looking for a traditional feel – afternoon tea in the drawing room is a must – without any compromises on style or comfort.

The 10 feature rooms are the ones to go for; spread over two floors, with original architectural flourishes and period furniture, each is named after a different Oxford college and have a pleasingly old-fashioned (with all mod cons) feel.

The bar is the perfect place to end a busy day; the terrace is idyllic in summer, while fires blaze in the grate in winter.

The city centre, colleges and all the main sights are within a ten-minute walk. This is a peaceful area, ideal for those who want to be slightly away from the buzzy centre.

Surrounding area

The hotel is located in Park Town, a peaceful, residential suburb in North Oxford, where many of the elegant Victorian villas are Grade II listed. Two central crescents wrap around a leafy square, giving the area a quiet, tranquil feel.

There’s little of the bustle of central Oxford; traffic levels are relatively low and few tourists venture here unless they’re staying at the Lodge. There’s a pub and good restaurant just around the corner from the hotel, but for a wider choice, the centre of town is ten minutes’ walk.
