Holistic B&B


"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Maya Angelou

The entire experience and well-being of our guests is important to us, not just their physical comfort. All who enter the Marlborough House Hotel in Oxford need to immediately feel the unique positive energy which is created by our dedication to our guests. We ensure that we welcome each guest and honour them with deep respect and genuine warmth. In keeping with this ethos of a holistic experience for our guests we have introduced the following in all our bedrooms: 

  • Succulent Plants - Each bedroom at our bed and breakfast in Oxford is provided with a beautiful succulent plant. Adding a plant in the bedroom results in a significant reduction in air pollutants. Plants are our natural air purifiers. The bedroom is where our quests go to relax and unwind at the end of the day. It makes sense to clear the air through the most natural means available - a beautiful house plant. 
  • Diffusers - Diffusers in the bedroom have relaxing properties that create a restful and uninterrupted sleep.  Diffusers help to elevate mood, reduce anxiety and promote peace of the body and mind. It creates a calming effect after a long journey or a busy day. 


It is our pleasure to offer you a relaxed, happy, comfortable and enjoyable experience whilst you are staying with us. 

A genuine smile distributes the cosmic current, prana to every body cell.  A happy person is less subject to being unwell, for happiness actually attracts into the body a greater supply of Universal life Energy. It is with this thought that we have embarked on a journey of offering a holistic guest experience to all who visit us.
