Cheap Hotels in Oxford 

Remont Oxford


Remont Oxford Hotel  - Bedroom

Possibly one of the best budget hotels Oxford offers, the Remont Oxford boasts decent-sized rooms and eclectic decor to match. 

This spot is located just 2 miles from Oxford’s city centre, with a spacious garden and terrace for unwinding after a day of schlepping around the city’s top sights

Rooms also come equipped with a work desk, should you need to spend an hour or two finishing off some tasks before you can enjoy your stay in the city.

Jury’s Inn


 Jurys Inn Oxford - Bedroom

Jury’s Inn is a wallet-friendly chain hotel brand across the UK, and their Oxford location offers the luxury of a high end hotel for a very reasonable price. This particular hotel features swanky communal areas and a pool where you can take an early morning (or late night) dip.

Rooms are impressive given the lower price, with huge beds and fully-stocked bathrooms offering up everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Jury’s Inn is located in Wolvercote, on the outskirts of the city centre, but public transport is abundant and it makes for a nice 20 minute walk when the sun is shining.

The Galaxie


The Galaxie

Oxford has plenty of fabulous boutique hotel options, though we absolutely adore The Galaxie in Summertown. Not only are each of the rooms carefully thought out in terms of design, but they’re very generous in size and boast huge windows that allow natural light to flood in.

The best part about treating yourself to a stay here is, without a doubt, the excellent English breakfast – it’s well worth waking up early for.

Old Black Horse Inn


Old Black Horse Inn - Bedroom

Sometimes all you need is a place to bed down for an evening – that’s where Old Black Horse Inn comes in clutch. The inn is located near the Oxford Botanical Garden, just a pleasant 15-minute walk from the centre.

This quaint Oxford pub has a couple of hidden rooms upstairs, and they’re fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable short trip to the city – from tea and coffee facilities to a desk where you can catch up on some work.

The Bat & Ball Cuddesdon


 The Bat & Ball Cuddesdon

We’ll level with you, this hotel is located the furthest from Oxford’s historic centre than the other hotels in this guide. But it rivals the other cheap Oxford hotels in its beauty, so we think you’ll forgive us.

The classic Oxford stone exterior is enough to make you fall in love, though the food and drink is also wonderful at this little bed and breakfast, with an abundance of home-cooked breakfasts and dinner available daily.

The Osney Arms Guesthouse


 The Osney Arms Guest House

The Osney Arms Guesthouse might just be the top cheap hotel central Oxford boasts. With a choice between a standard room and even cheaper ones that are smaller with shared bathrooms, your budget need not dictate your trip.

Despite being one of the cheapest hotels in this guide, the rooms are stylish and the generous breakfast on offer has rave reviews from previous guests.

The Jericho Hotel


The Jericho Hotel

Looking for a conveniently-located spot in Oxford that won’t break the bank? Look no further than The Jericho Hotel – it’s among the top cheap accommodation Oxford has to offer. 

Rooms are incredibly simple, though the ornate original features keep the hotel from being too boring. You’re also just around the corner from the Ashmolean Museum and the Radcliffe Camera, so this makes for a great base to explore.

The Sportsview Guesthouse


 The Sportsview Guest House

Located in a Victorian townhouse, The Sportsview Guesthouse is a no-frills B&B less than a ten-minute walk from Oxford’s city centre. Rooms are a vision of red and white, with accessories that perfectly complement the character features dotted throughout the property.

The family room for four is particularly brilliant value for money, offering space for four adults (or parents and kids) to stay comfortably.



easyHotel Oxford

EasyJet airlines have branched out in recent years with a range of budget hotels across the country.  As with the airline, fares cover the most simple of amenities – so don’t expect much more than a bed, toilet, and shower. 

That said, we are rather impressed with EasyHotel’s offering. Rooms are simple, decorated in the signature orange and white style and many rooms do not even feature windows, yet the beds are comfy and the value for money is unbeatable. It’s one of the top cheap hotels in Oxford city centre.

Premier Inn – Westgate


Premier Inn - Westgate

If in doubt, Premier Inn is a failsafe chain that offers rather stylish rooms for budget travellers. Oxford actually has a few Premier Inns, but we think that the Westgate location is the very best.

Tucked away behind Castle Street, it sits on the doorstep of the Westgate Shopping Centre – a modern open-air shopping centre with a mix of chain and local shops (and an excellent street food hall, too). 

It’s also not far from the main attractions, such as the ex-prison and castle, the Radcliffe Camera, and the Bodleian Library.

Iffley Townhouse


Iffley Townhouse

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Oxford on a budget but do not want to compromise on style, Iffley Townhouse is a brilliant option. In particular, the deluxe king size rooms offer the same amount of space and amenities that you would find in hotels three times the price.

Located on Iffley Road near Florence Park, this cheap Oxford accommodation is a little bit further out from the city centre but easily accessible on public transport in around 10 minutes.

George Hotel


George Oxford Hotel - Bedroom

It’s difficult to miss this hotel’s striking grey exterior, though the inside is equally as impressive. George Hotel offers a luxe stay in Oxford’s city centre for a fraction of the cost that you would expect to pay at high end haunts.

In fact, this is our top choice for cheap hotels in Oxford. The rooms are spacious and modern, while the bathrooms are downright beautiful. And you’ll want to ask for a room facing the inner courtyard if you’re looking to wake up to pretty views.

Cotswold House


Cotswold House

Teetering just on the line between budget and mid-range, Cotswold House is a gorgeous countryside B&B near Oxford. Situated on Banbury Road in the Summertown area of the city, it offers up all the perks of a country escape within close proximity to Oxford.

The owners have taken the vintage theme and ran with it (which we think makes some of the rooms look a little bit dated) with kitschy tiles, floral sofas, and deep wood accents. Though, the addition of a jacuzzi bath in some of the rooms is very welcome. 

Oxford Linton Lodge


 Best Western Plus Oxford Linton Lodge

Situated in a beautiful Edwardian property, Linton Lodge is one of our favourite cheap Oxford hotels. Rooms are minimalistic yet stylish, with plenty of decorative accents throughout the hotel that make it feel more like a mid-end stay – if it wasn’t for its ludicrously low price.

The large lounge area is a great place to congregate in the evening, though you’re only a short walk from the best restaurants and bars in the city.
