Stunning new rooms and conservatory now open
We are pleased to announce the completion of the £2 million investment at Oxford Thames Four Pillars Hotel on new and upgraded bedrooms along with a multi-function Conservatory for dining and events.
The Conservatory adds 135 m² of space to our current choice of 9 rooms for private events and the new bedrooms increase the capacity to 84 rooms.
We have converted an existing courtyard area adjacent to the popular River Room Restaurant into a multi-functional, bright and airy Conservatory which can accommodate up to 90 people. When combined with the Little Barn, River Room Restaurant, Oxford Suite and Eights Bar it can support larger events and occasions of up to 350 people for private events. New car parking spaces have been added to support the new facilities.
The 22 new double bedrooms – ‘River’ and ‘Garden’ rooms - all feature air conditioning, iPod docking stations, complimentary drinks trays, 37” LCD digital televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi, while in the bathrooms guests can enjoy relaxing drench showers and toiletries from Clarins.
The new rooms are linked to the existing buildings and all have views over the hotel's gardens. Ten of the rooms enjoy uninterrupted views over the hotel's 30 acre grounds leading down to the River Thames; those on the ground floor having direct patio access on to the lawns and two first floor corner rooms featuring Juliette balconies. The remaining 12 rooms have uninterrupted tranquil views of Heyford Meadows and the hotel’s Walled Garden.
Jonathan Oldroyd, General Manager of the hotel says, “The new facilities are part of the Group’s continuing focus on offering clients the very best facilities in Oxford - an area of the UK that is seeing increased interest from the meetings sector. The Conservatory and new bedrooms will enable us to offer even more flexibility to organisers of events of all kinds, from meetings and conferences to weddings and private parties.
“Oxford has so much to offer - a multi-cultural atmosphere, literary connections ranging from Tolkien to Inspector Morse and Harry Potter, nearby Cotswold landscapes and historic houses such as Blenheim Palace. Oxford also has the advantage of being easily reachable via the main motorways of M1, M4 and M40, by rail from London, and just over an hour from the airports of Heathrow and Birmingham.”
