Tower House Information

Description

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 king size 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 roll top 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 en-suite rooms or small doubles with a shared WC & shower room. The Jade and Red rooms, both with king size 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.

Accessibility

We have one ground floor en suite room available (a deluxe double en suite with shower) however, we are a listed townhouse with narrow staircases and uneven floors, so we are not well suited for those with greater accessibility needs. There is a very steep step entering into the property. Please get in contact if you feel this may be an issue for you.
