Oxford Hawkwell House

There has been a rush of hotel openings and re-openings over the last few weeks.  UK summer staycations are proving very popular.  Will demand exceed capacity?  The Editor-in-Chief booked his family (7) vacation weeks ago.

The Mercure Oxford Hawkwell House Hotel will open its doors on 15 June. The property, the birthplace of explorer, treasure hunter and polar medallist Francis Howard Bickerton, occupies three buildings, including two 19th century manor houses, and is set among three acres of private gardens situated two miles from the city centre.

The hotel has undergone an extensive redesign, inspired by its location. The new décor of the historic hotel emulates Oxford vintage style, with interiors inspired by the classic Oxford brogue and Oxford shirt, with classic textures, fabrics and pleasing design touches such as the wooden brogue coat hooks.  It is quintessentially British.

Mercure Oxford Hawkwell House Hotel is steeped in history and stories of days gone by. The adjacent Elm House is the former home of British pilot and aerial photographer Major George W. Allen, which offers 15 bedrooms and private gardens and is available for exclusive hire.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar 'Frank’s at Hawkwell House' has been named in honour of the famous explorer and serves up an array of classic tipples including the hotel’s signature cocktail 'Shackleton’s Revenge', a nod to Bickerton’s participation in Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 'Endurance' expedition, as well as the restaurant’s signature dish, the 'Baked Alaska', as part of a locally inspired menu.
