Built in the mid-19th century, Cotswold Lodge Hotel is located in the green suburbs of Oxford where many grand houses were purpose-built for the occupation of newly-married Oxford dons once the university finally granted them permission to wed in the early Victorian era.

Converted into a hotel over four decades ago, Cotswold Lodge has been hosting weddings ever since, and prides themselves on their expertise and outstanding service in this area.

  • Dan and Lisa Abrey - October 2015

    After searching quite a few venues in Oxford we came across Cotswold Lodge, and simply fell in love. The wedding package they had on offer was amazing value and the hotel itself is gorgeous with a real touch of elegance in the rooms and throughout the building. The food is to die for and everyone who was at the wedding has complimented it. The staff were of excellent standard and amazingly helpful and all our guest felt just as important to myself and my husband. The wedding coordinator (Esra Howe) was amazing!! The bridal suite is just gorgeous, with a four poster bed and separate sitting room. I would highly recommend this hotel for wedding and even just as a lovely place to stay while in Oxford. I can't express how amazing this hotel and the staff are. Thank you all so much.

    Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our weekend. The hotel is walking distance to Oxford uni where the wedding was held. We found our room smallish but very comfy bed and pillows. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good parking. Delicious breakfast. No complaints at all.
