Escape to a 17th-century coaching inn with modern interiors in the historic centre of scholarly Oxford, including breakfast

Created from a converted coaching inn, Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel is a three-star hotel set throughout an attractive townhouse in central Oxford. The hotel has retained the charm and modest grandeur of its roots and improved upon it with considered, contemporary decor and modern comforts. From the Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel you're perfectly placed to explore this historic university city whether your visit's for business or leisure.

Oxford is packed full of historic things to see and do and where better to start than a punt down the river, which is just a short walk from Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel. Float down the Cherwell beneath Oxford's splendid bridges, pass the beautiful Botanic Gardens and punt on to St. Hilda's before stopping for a well earned picnic.

Spend the afternoon museum hopping or souvenir shopping at the Covered Market or visit famous TV and film spots - Harry Potter, Downtown Abbey and Midsomer Murders have all been filmed on location here. Whatever you do, be sure to end your day at the Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel's elegant and award-winning restaurant for a relaxing dinner.
