About the hotel
If the idea of staying in an historic hotel in the centre of Oxford appeals,Tower House is the obvious choice. Two of our contemporary deluxe rooms, Bastion & Foundry, are quietly tucked away in one of the 21 bastions within the 13th century 2 mile long city wall. Spacious rooms with kingsize beds, both have lovely modern bathrooms - the Foundry on the ground floor has a large walk in shower & the Bastion, up a small narrow staircase has a generous rolltop bath with a handheld shower.
If your taste is for something more modern, we have 6 stylish rooms in our 3 storey, 16th century town house on Ship Street. We are rather fond of our narrow stairs, wobbly walls and slightly uneven floors but we appreciate for the taller of our guests, 16th century architecture may be a challenge as our ceilings are pretty low. Our bedrooms are tasteful and modern and you can choose from 3 double ensuite rooms or small doubles with a shared WC & shower room. The Jade and Red rooms, both with kingsize beds, face onto Ship Street and although they are usually quiet, occasional reports of enthusiastic late night revelry have reached us so if you prefer something quieter, the Yellow room with a standard double bed may appeal. All three have contemporary bathrooms with shower, washbasin and WC. For guests seeking a friendlier price range, we have three lovely small double rooms - Pink, Blue and Little Blue. All three have a washbasin in the room and standard double beds and are decorated in a combination of painted and period furniture. All our rooms have flat screen TVs, tea and coffee etc and free wifi. As part of the Hub Ventures family, out of hours check in is managed by Turl Street Kitchen where you will be served a delicious breakfast - we're not keen on fry ups but how do real sausage or bacon sandwiches or french toast with maple syrup sound? Kippers and salmon too! TSK has a well deserved reputation for locally sourced, seasonal menus & the atmosphere is so chilled.

Excellent weekend stay
Stayed for a Friday night in the 'Little Blue' room.
Excellent, warm welcome; friendly staff; room small, but well formed, and a lovely breakfast in the Turl Street Kitchen the morning after. Some noise from the road, but this is the price you pay for characterful, historic accommodation in the centre of Oxford.
Perfectly placed among the Dreaming Spires!
Tower House is perfectly situated in central Oxford and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful The accommodation itself is exactly that - there is no restaurant or bar in the house itself - but this is remedied within two minutes of the front door as one can take advantage of the warm welcome & wonderful food & drink provided by the Turl Street Kitchen.
The guest house is formed in a row of 16th century cottages and compliments the beautiful surroundings perfectly. The only issue of this special place is of course the parking - which is non-existent in such a non-car friendly city. Take the train!
