Oxford city centre has virtually no chain hotels. However there are numerous Bed & Breakfasts, boutique hotels and hostels, though they all tend to be on the higher end of the price scale.
I. College accomodation
Staying in a Oxford college is certainly a way to appreciate how a student lives and dines in buildings that are centuries old. Out of term, some colleges offer rooms to visitors. Check the Oxford Rooms
website for more details.
II. Randolph Hotel
Located on Beaumont Street opposite Ashmolean Museum, Randolph Hotel is a five-star hotel and spa right in the city centre. For Inspector Morse's fans, the hotel's Morse Bar was one of his favourite watering holes.
III. Bath Place Hotel
Quite hard to find, and with a bit of character, the Bath Place Hotel is a collection of 17th century cottages surrounding a courtyard. The hotels is accessed through Holywell Street and is right next to the Turf Tavern - another hidden, but popular, pub in Oxford.
IV. Oxford Castle/Malmaison Hotel
This Malmaison Hotel has a unique setting. The rooms are converted prison cells that were part of the Oxford Castle.
V. Royal Oxford Hotel
The Royal Oxford Hotel is a three-star hotel located close to the railway station and Said Business school on Park End Street.
