Accommodation Description:

Get the most out of your visit to Oxford by staying at the Old Black Horse. The Old Black Horse is a 17th Century Coaching Inn located five minutes from the centre of Oxford at the end of the High Street. The historic buildings of the city and university are nearby and Magdalen College with its beautiful deer park is just across the river.

We offer superior bed and breakfast accommodation with a range of single, twin, double and family rooms. All our bedrooms are en-suite and are equipped with Internet access points (both wired and wireless), remote control television, direct dial telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. If you are contemplating a longer stay we recommend staying in one of our Home-from-home Suites that provide all the facilities of home while you’re away from home.

The Old Black Horse is centrally located, easy to find and easy to reach by public or private transport. London and Airport Coaches stop outside and we have a large secure car park. Back in the 17th Century, many of our guests required stables and accommodation for their servants.

To satisfy their needs, behind the Inn, a large yard was constructed with suitable outbuildings. Today, with far fewer travellers arriving by carriage or on horseback we have converted these outbuildings into delightful, self-contained suites.
