Situated half an hour’s drive from the regal university town of Oxford, The Oxfordshire Golf Hotel Spa sits amid an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where chalk-escarpment hills, woodland pathways and rolling golfing greens embellish the landscape. The four-star hotel provides a base for sightseeing and spa retreats, while the historic city of Oxford and quaint Oxfordshire towns are within driving distance.
Each executive room is decorated to a high standard and features a private balcony, pocket-sprung bed, handmade furnishings, flat-screen TV, safe deposit box, hair dryer, trouser press, and en suite bathroom facilities with a bath and a separate shower cubicle for ultimate comfort.
At the spa, beauty treatments complement the facilities including a sauna, steam room, a 15-metre pool, gym and a fitness studio. Outside, the golf course blends into the surrounding natural landscape forming the UK’s first Rees Jones-designed course. This award-winning golf course was the host venue of major tournaments such as the Benson & Hedges International, Andersen Consulting World Championship and Ladies English Open.
The Lakes Lounge and The Spike Bar offer a relaxed setting where sandwiches, snacks and refreshments are aplenty, providing sustenance after a round on the golf course or a morning at the spa. For more formal dining, the Sakura restaurant is situated in the hotel’s annexe, incorporating picturesque views into the dining experience, with recognition in the form of an AA Rosette.
