"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 &breakfast in Oxford 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. 


  • Namaste Dost -The intention behind Namaste Dost is to attempt to positively influence one thought, for one second in one person at a time.
  • Wake-Up Routine
  • Bed-Time Routine
  • Bed-Time Meditation 
  • Shower Treat
  • Offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of the City, but conveniently located right at its heart, is the green oasis offered by University Parks with something to please everyone. The parks are a 25 minute walk from the hotel towards Oxford City Centre.
  • Enjoy a relaxing walk along the Oxford Canal which can be followed into the City Centre 10 minutes to walk from the Marlborough House Hotel. Please ask our dedicated team for directions.

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.
