A storied Oxford hotel set in 30 acres of parkland

Close to the heart of Oxford, on the banks of the River Thames, lies De Vere Oxford Thames. With a history dating back to the Middle Ages, the hotels surroundings have an intriguing story to tell. Originally headquarters of the Knights Templar, the house and its lands have been owned by notable religious figures, lords, and even kings throughout the centuries.

Today, the hotel combines its medieval character with 21st-century style to create a unique setting for memorable meetings, conferences, and weddings alike.

Dining here is a relaxed affair. Discover British classics in the restaurant, enjoy pub favourites in the bar, or take afternoon tea out on the terrace.

A riverside setting and 30 acres of manicured grounds offer plenty of chance to explore the outdoors. And when it’s time to relax, you’ll discover a choice of stylish rooms and suites, many offering views over the River Thames.

Just three miles from Oxford city centre and easily accessible by the M40, M4 and A34; De Vere Oxford Thames offers a wonderful base for exploring the ‘City of Gleaming Spires’.
