Likes:
We loved the adorable Little Blue room and the Tower House's super-convenient location. Breakfast at Turl Street Kitchen was lovely too!
Dislikes:
The only less-than-perfect detail was the shower in the shared bathroom, which was clean, but left something to be desired in terms of water pressure/temperature!
Response from Tower House:
Thank you, we hope to see you at some future point

"Authentic Oxford"
Despite my 6'2" husband hitting his head on the low ceilings, the authenticity of the Tower House was delightful! Centuries-old beams, crooked floors, and odd staircases were a fantastic reminder that we were in historic Oxford. The rooms were fully upgraded and clean, and the manager was super friendly and accommodating. Read less

"Wonderful location, comfortable, easy"
I stayed two nights in the Foundry Room. The room is large with modern plumbing and shower. Breakfast is served in a restaurant a few meters away on Turl Street, with delicious options for a filling meal. This is not a full-service hotel with a desk, but the staff were easily available, friendly, and efficient. Read less

Fantastic location. In the center of Oxford but on a quiet street. Could not have been more convenient/comfortable. My room had a kettle with tea and biscuits, and fruit appeared the second da
Dislikes:
The room could use just a few touch-ups to the ceiling.
Response from Tower House:
Thank you very much for your kind words. we hope to see you at a future date.

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 kingsize 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 rolltop 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 ensuite rooms or small doubles with a shared WC & shower room.

The Jade and Red rooms, both with kingsize 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.

As part of the Hub Ventures family, out of hours check in is managed by Turl Street Kitchen where you will be served a delicious breakfast - we're not keen on fry ups but how do real sausage or bacon sandwiches or french toast with maple syrup sound? Kippers and salmon too! TSK has a well deserved reputation for locally sourced, seasonal menus & the atmosphere is so chilled.
