Based on the outskirts of central Oxford, the Jurys Inn Oxford Hotel and Conference Centre is an excellent business hotel with lots of fabulous touches that you’ll love and appreciate. With a free car park for 250 cars, it is a super accessible location by road, with railway & air links close by too. And being centrally located in the country opens up masses of opportunities.

And as you enter the hotel into its very chic lobby, you are immediately struck by how light, airy and modern the place is. With the option to check in with self-service terminals or at the reception desk, where you are given a warm welcome from the super friendly staff. In fact, during our visit there was always a member of staff around the reception desk area to assist people to their meeting rooms or to provide guidance with the check-in terminals. A really nice touch of excellent customer service.

From the lobby you can easily access the ‘Juvenate’ gym / swimming pool, the conference centre, all the bedrooms as well as the fab Coopers Bar and Marco Pierre White restaurant. Oh, and did we mention the fab little Costa coffee bar in the lobby too? Perfect!

Parking: 250 free places – you just register your car registration number at any of the numerous terminals throughout the lobby. Very quick and easy.

Coach / Bus Pick-up Location at hotel: Yes, coaches can pick up and drop off outside the main hotel entrance – there’s even a turning circle for the coach, as well as six coach parking bays in the car park.

Number of bedrooms: 240 bedrooms – Comprised of Standard, Superior and Executive rooms

All bedrooms have been recently renovated and they are really nice. We loved them. Perfect size, excellent facilities and excellent décor. The Superior rooms all have two beds (various combinations of 1 double and a single , 2 x doubles ) and the Executive rooms have a super king sized bed, Sky TV, espresso machine, fridge (with complimentary soft drinks, biscuits & sweets) and large flat screen TV dressing gown and slippers

Number of floors: 3

Business centre: No but any printing / copying can be done via the conference team or the main reception desk

Wi-fi: Yes, hi-speed wi-fi throughout the hotel, which can be increased if required for a conference

Fitness gym: Yes, the excellent ‘Juvenate’ gym includes a great mixture of free weights, machines and swiss balls/kettle bells etc. A really nice gym and much better than your average hotel gym. You’ll really like it there. They even have a squash court which doubles up as an exercise room for classes of varies types.

Spa & Swimming Pool: Yes, there is a small but really nice swimming pool, complete with sauna and steam room. The changing rooms have also been renovated recently and are super nice.

RESTAURANTS & BARS
In the hotel lobby is the fab Costa coffee bar – where you can get most of the usual Costa options including some light snacks – bacon rolls, pastries, etc.

Just off from the lobby is the super cool ‘Coopers Bar’ (homage to the famous Mini Coopers famous in this part of the world) – serving fab food options (sandwiches, burgers, nibbles artisan pizzas etc) and your usual drinks, cocktails, real ales and a fine gin selection – there’s even a Gin Club once a month too!

On the first floor is the amazing Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, where the food is out of this world. Cool surroundings, super friendly staff and a steak that was absolutely amazing – we highly recommend you visit here. You’ll love it and so will your clients!

MEETING / CONFERENCE ROOMS
The hotel benefits from 20 excellent and flexible meeting spaces – there is something here for every type of meeting. The recently built conference centre feels brand new and is a super pleasant place to be.

Located just past the hotel lobby, you immediately are impressed by the super bright and nicely decorated conference lobby – where lunches, coffee breaks and even exhibitions can be located. From here most meeting spaces are accessed very easily with some on the ground floor level and the smaller boardrooms / break out rooms one floor up

On the ground floor there are 6 conference rooms including the two largest spaces: the University Suite and the New Oriel room, upstairs there are the 14 flexible boardrooms / breakout rooms giving masses of opportunity for your conferences and events.

It is also worth pointing out the three small ‘Satellite’ rooms just off the main hotel lobby – these are available to hire by the hour and perfect for private meetings or interviews etc.
