What makes a stay at 2 The Tidmarsh unique?

The Tidmarsh has been inspected by Visit England every year for the past decade, and has been awarded their highest rating on each occasion: 5 stars, Gold Award, with “exemplary standards of cleanliness” particularly praised. The Tidmarsh has a modern interior, with the highest quality furniture and fittings, including underfloor heating, leather seating, 1200 thread count bed linen, free WiFi, USB charging points, granite work surfaces, and plentiful high quality crockery and utensils, including a Nespresso coffee machine, blender and rice cooker. Its location cannot be bettered. It's one of just seven apartments at the Heritage side of the Castle Quarter, so it's quiet, but within walking distance of all city centre amenities, such as the new Westgate shopping outlet, University buildings, Said Business School, theatres and restaurants.

The bedroom has one double bed, but it is possible to put a blow-up mattress in the living area for a child for a short stay.

The University Parks, Christ Church Meadow and Botanic Gardens are a short walk from the apartment, as is the river for punting. The visitor information centre organises many differing tours in the city centre, and day trips outside the city are also available, such as to visit Blenheim Palace. For day trips out of Oxford, the train station is a ten minute walk, and trains reach London in an hour or Bicester Village in 15 minutes.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

All city centre amenities are on the doorstep and within walking distance, from historic pubs like the Turf Tavern, and Eagle & Child to tea at the Macdonald Randolph Hotel, and everything in between.
