Great architecture
Oct 2020 • Couples
As with all these colleges the architecture is beautiful. Quiet on a sunny autumn afternoon after walking from the nearby meadow. Surrounded by small streets and alleyways

Oriel College is near several other colleges on the east side of Oxford while wandering the streets of Oxford, another architectural delight, well worth a viewing of the outside cause its free.

Quiet retreat

Like most colleges, if you can get in, it is so pleasant to enjoy the serenity and tranquility in the quads. Three quads in Oriel.

Little jewel

What a pretty college. The courtyard is very picturesque and beautifully kept of course. The chapel is also interesting with a mixture of very old and slightly less old.

I have dined in the Champneys Room many times
Aug 2018 • Business
This is a lovely dining room seating about 40 people with antique furniture and paintings of past members of the college. Food is excellent but you have to have been invited to an event or organise your own if you are a bone fide organisation.

but very compact and pleasant to stay. Good breakfast in the atmospheric dining area. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the VIP rooms which overlooked the quad. The room was quaint but palatial.

Beautiful building and space

Well worth visiting. The quad is typically peaceful and beautiful, particularly during the summer months.
The dining hall and chapel are spectacular.

Looked good from outside.

We visited the College when the literature and the web site said it would be open, but were disappointed to find it closed to the public. Not sure how you get round this problem. Planning visits doesn’t seem to be the answer - it’s rather like pot luck.
