Hotels in Oxford, the oldest university city in England
The University City of Monarchs, Prime Ministers and Presidents, Oxford has been venerated as a seat of learning since medieval times. The earliest origins of hotel accommodation in Oxford were in monastic Inns, paralleled today with students living in the College Inns. As more Colleges were founded, the city grew to provide readily available services for increasing numbers of visitors and residents. Due to its situation on the River Thames, rowing competitions between the Colleges are keenly supported by participants’ friends and families. Development of the city has made more than 150 additional hotels and guesthouses or B&B accommodation available to tourists, travellers, business people and other visitors.
Noted for its cyclists, the city of Oxford is, however, easily accessible by rail and road, with Park and Ride facilities available, whilst Oxford airport is located nearby at Kidlington.
Travellers on the London to Fishguard road requiring overnight hotel rooms are served by Oxford coaching inns, such as the 13th century coaching inn which is now the 4-star MacDonaldBear hotel on Park Street.
