Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Oxford. You’re just a short hop away from enjoying a pint before a roaring fire in one of Oxford’s literary pubs.
Whether watching a Hollywood movie crew filming the honey-hued cloisters of Christ Church College or seeing deer prance in the meadows of Magdalen College, the City of Dreaming Spires is full of surprises. It takes only minutes from our Oxford hotels to reach the historic city center and the colleges that make Oxford the quintessential university town. Lose yourself in the Pitt Rivers Museum, where the fascinating archaeology and anthropology collections of Oxford University are kept in charmingly old-fashioned style. Wander tree-lined paths along the River Cherwell where punts (flat-bottomed boats) glide silently across the water.

A short drive from our hotels in Oxford takes you to the outlet shops at Bicester Village, where you can find designer gear from luxury brands like Dior and Versace at prices up to 60% off.
