More Room Types

Hawkwell House Hotel is a good-value, refined country-house hotel built in the early 19th century. Once the home of famous polar explorer Francis Howard Bickerton, it is in a peaceful location in the Cotswolds, near Oxford and attractions such as Blenheim Palace and Cotswolds Wildlife Park.

Oxford city centre is a 6-minute drive or a 20-minute bus ride from the quaint village of Iffley, a 4-minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is also a pleasant 39-minute walk from the city, along the scenic River Iffley. The 12th-century St Mary’s Church -- one of the UK's finest examples of Romanesque architecture -- is within a 1-minute walk of the hotel. As well as its famous "dreaming spires", Oxford's attractions include the Ashmolean Museum's collection of art and archaeology, and the Mediaeval Bodleian Library. Other area attractions include Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, which is a 19-minute drive from the hotel (or a 53-minute bus ride), and Cotswold Wildlife Park, which is within a half-hour’s drive of the hotel.

Each of the hotel's 62 comfortable rooms and suites has a flat-screen TV with Sky news and Freeview, free Wi-Fi, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and complimentary hot chocolate and biscuits. Upgraded and family rooms include extra sitting and sleeping areas, with larger suites including 4-poster beds or whirlpool tubs, iPod docks and laptop safes. There are three wheelchair-adapted rooms, and a further 15 boutique, contemporary rooms in the nearby Elm House, which can be hired separately for large groups. A complimentary full English breakfast is included with the price.

The hotel's relaxed Iffley Blue restaurant has skylights and stripped wooden floors. There's also a bar, a terrace, a lounge, a conservatory, and meeting, banqueting and event spaces.
