This eponymously named suite boasts a luxurious roll top bath to sink into after a long day, revitalising rainfall shower and a sumptuous additional seating area to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea and prepare for the day ahead.

At night, tuck into your delightful English hand-crafted queen-size bed fully equipped with fine Egyptian cotton sheets and light fluffy pillows to help you relax.

Located on the ground floor of the boutique hotel in Oxford, this magnificent Suite was designed to honour the hotel’s namesake, Sir John Vanbrugh.

Sir John Vanbrugh was a phenomenal country-house architect in the early 18th century. He was responsible for Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard, the two greatest commissions of the time.

A creative and ambitious designer, he characteristically worked in a boldly abstracted classical style influenced by European Baroque architecture. He is thought to have partly designed our Oxford hotel and his influence can be seen throughout.


The Sir John Vanbrugh Suite at our luxury hotel in Oxford offers the following little touches of luxury:

  • Complimentary soft drink & snack mini bar with fresh milk to refresh before you explore Oxford.
  • Tea making facilities with our favourite brand Tea Pigs
  • In room, safe, and iron & ironing board, the holiday essentials
  • Smart TV to flick through your favourite programmes
  • Powerful rainfall shower with Spa-inspired toiletries
  • Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi throughout
  • Umbrellas in case of rainy days
  • Extra blankets for added comfort
  • Hairdryers

We stayed in an elegant top floor superior room, tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed and oodles of space! The staff were so welcoming and catered for our every need. Breakfast we were spoilt for choice - everything looked scrumptious! Highly recommended!
