About

An independently owned, pleasant 20 room Metro Hotel very close to Oxford city centre, with a garden leading down to the banks of the River Thames and lovely river views from the restaurant. We take pride in our personal service and friendly staff.

"Large enough to be comfortable ..
.. small enough to be friendly"

We are conveniently located close to the centre of Oxford, making it a short walk to tourist, business and travel needs.   Said Business School and the King's Conference Centre are a short walk away.   

Lying on the banks of the River Thames, overlooking Osney Island Conservation area, the River Hotel is perfectly located at the start (or end) the 'Thames Path' route between Newbridge and Abingdon. There is boat mooring on the opposite side of the river.

With regular bus and train connections to London, taking just one hour to Marble Arch or Paddington, Oxford is an ideal tourist friendly city to be based while visiting London, as well as other heritage sights in all directions.

visitengland_2star.gifThe River Hotel has consistently been awarded a quality 2* Metro Hotel rating by Visit England for our Quality in Tourism.  As a Metro Hotel we must 'provide full hotel services with the exception of dinner'.  We do provide a well presented breakfast with buffet and freshly cooked items to order, while we are 'within easy walking distance of a range of places to eat'.  When comparing hotels, do check the ratings and be aware there are marked differences between a 2* hotel compared to 2* guest accommodation.
