For golfers of every stripe, the 18-hole, par-72 PGA Genevieve Championship Course is a great example of a classic parkland course, with its own river running through to offer character and another dimension to the challenge. Of course, the club also has its own club shop, where you can stock up on equipment, consult the pro on your technique or make use of the repairs workshop.

If you prefer pampering to putting, the spa has a great selection of luxurious and indulgent beauty treatments provided in well-appointed and comfortable treatment rooms, and using top-of-the-range Elemis products.

You can take a dip in the indoor swimming pool, or take it easy in the sauna or Jacuzzi. And, for the active visitor, the hotel also boasts a large and well-equipped gym – with treadmills, elliptical trainers and weights machines.

Where is there to eat & drink at the hotel?

The Genevieve Restaurant is light and airy, yet traditional. It enjoys spectacular views over the golf course it is named after, and offers up a menu full of traditional cuisine given a modern influence – with the best of British and some international favourites too.

If you prefer a less formal setting for dining or a drink, the lounge bar area has a full menu of snacks and bar meals, together with a good selection of beers, wines and spirits.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5.
Pathetic management and leadership experienced. We had hoped for a really enjoyable stay with quality amenities and service, good food and efficient administrative attention, but we were disappointed with our experience. For an Oxford Hotel this was a let down, for we have had wonderful vacations at other locations in the group. ...
