Welcome to the Westgate Hotel, Oxford, a small friendly, family-run hotel where the aim is to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Whether you are in Oxford for a day or a week, the Westgate Hotel is the ideal venue for your business or leisure trip. Set in the West of Oxford very close to the railway station it is only a ten minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the city centre or, if you are looking for peace and tranquillity, a two minute walk to the river Thames and the countryside.
Originally built as a coaching inn and taking its name from its proximity to the West Gate of the City of Oxford the Westgate Hotel is owned and operated by a family of professional hoteliers with more than 40 years experience. It is a small friendly, family-run hotel where the aim is to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
There are two buildings, the main hotel where all the ensuite accommodation and the main amenities and facilities are located and a house situated two minutes, across the road, where we have concentrated the majority of our basic rooms.
Oxford is known as the 'city of the dreaming spires' - a term first coined by poet Matthew Arnold in reference to the gentle spires and harmonious architecture of the city's university buildings.
The beauty of the city's colleges and riverside setting, literary links and stunning film and TV locations, shops with local character and music and drama ranging from candlelit evensong in college chapels to Shakespeare in the park - these ingredients blend with Oxford's lively mix of restaurants, pubs, theatres and tourist attraction to give this historic city its alluring, vibrant and cosmopolitan buzz.
