Designed with the modern traveller in mind, the new Oxford opening features the latest Courtyard by Marriott design to ensure a refreshing and productive hotel experience.

Design company, Urban Reef, created the striking, futuristic, exterior of the property, and the interior design showcases artwork and murals inspired by the county of Oxfordshire.

The hotel is located within easy reach of Oxford city centre and its historic and cultural attractions, Bicester Village shopping outlet, and premium science and business hub Milton Park.

"Courtyard by Marriott Oxford South is an excellent gateway to discover the unique attractions of this historic area," says John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands Europe at Marriott International.

"Whether our guests are in Oxfordshire for business or pleasure, they are sure to enjoy an authentic local experience that inspires them to both work and play."

The 170 welcoming guest rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi, 55-inch TVs with Chromecast technology, rainfall showers, comfortable Hypnos beds, and Nespresso machines. Guests can also unwind in the state-of-the-art fitness centre.

The hotel's signature all-day dining restaurant, The Oxen Bar & Grill, presents seasonal British-inspired and international cuisine in a relaxed setting with its open pizza kitchen, all-weather alfresco dining terrace, and urban lounge bar.

The hotel is owned by Reef Estates Hotels, a private property development and investment company and operated by EQ Hotels.

The addition of Courtyard Oxford South brings the brand's footprint in Europe to over 60 hotels. Further hotel openings are anticipated over the next couple of years in key growth markets including Germany, UK, and France, as well as new markets including Armenia, Iceland, and Finland.
