We stayed here on Saturday night to help celebrate our friend's birthday.
Our Sat Nav didn't like the one way system in Oxford town centre so it's best to rely on the directions from the hotel's website.
On arrival we parked our car out the front of the grand old castle entrance, where we were welcomed by staff, and we walked into the reception area - we were welcomed in and ushered to sit down to check in. We had requested a parking space (£25) so a valet helped my husband collect our bags then took the key & parked it in the underground car park.
We were given a room in the House of Corrections which was found once we had walked through a walkway where we saw the real metal steps and walkways of the prison like we saw on Porridge and other prison tv shows.
Our room was really authentic but beautifully refurbished into a real classy boutique style luxury hotel room.
We met our friends in the cocktail bar (3rd floor), which was beautifully furnished, & had a few drinks before we ventured out to check out the local area.
Literally within a very short walk you can find Prezzo Restaurant, Living Room, Pizza Express, several bars and pubs including a gay pub and a Wetherspoons. Then off the main street we found several other bars and clubs so I can safely say this is an ideal location has something to offer all ages, tastes and budgets.
Breakfast was in the Brasserie - we had to wait a few minutes to be seated in a side room which was very quirky. We were invited to help ourselves to a range of fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, yoghurts and juices before having tea/coffee, toast and choice of hot breakfast from a menu served to us. It was all of very high quality and very tasty.
This trip cost us more than the average hotel room but we got a luxury room in the most memorable surroundings; so felt it was worth treating ourselves - xx
