If you want to make your visit to Oxford extra special, it is best to book some luxury accommodation. Oxford used to only have one luxury hotel to speak of, The Randolph, but things have imporved in recent years and Oxford now has plenty of luxurious hotels located in the heart of the city including the award winning prison hotel run by Mal Maison. Oxford's most popular luxury hotels start with the famous Randolph closely followed by the less central Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir Aux Quatre Saisons but a new favourite has recently arrived on Oxford's luxury hotel scene, in the form of Mal Maison, Oxford Castle. This is a strange nomination for one of the best hotels in Oxford because it was formerly a prison, but it has been transformed in to an award winning luxury hotel maintaining many of the original features - worth a visit even if you dont stay there! Our recommended best hotels are listed below based on local knowledge and feedback, we hope you agree!
