Oxford Road Trip; Mercure Hotel *

So at the weekend we road tripped to Oxford, with a few stops along the way so this is the first of a few posts!

The lovely team from Mercure offered us a nights stay in their Oxford Eastgate hotel so we said ‘yes please’ and this is where the road trip really began. The first cog in the mechanism, so to speak, and as these posts go live it’ll make a little more sense of how more cogs came to fall into place.

We checked in around 2.30pm and our room was ready, which is always great! The staff on the front desk were second to none and told us just to call down to book our picnic. Yes, they were making us a picnic so we could chill out in one of the may parks around Oxford, what babes!

So the room, we were on the first floor, and our room was lovely. You can tell it had been newly refurbished as everything was so pristine, as it should be when staying away from home. I’ve got fed up of staying in tired hotels so this was a welcome change!

We had a Nespresso machine, huge bathroom, and that bed, well I didn’t wanna get up in the morning! You can see more of the room in our video here…

We took our picnic to the river bank and set up shop for a few hours.

And inside was the cutest homemade picnic…

We devoured our sandwiches, scoffed the pork pies and ate our scones the Devonshire way.

We then had the cutest of visitors…

We shared a little of our food with him and he even ate out of my hand!

After some Pokemon hunting, we wandered back to the room to change for dinner and all I wanted to do was curl up in bed but alas, we had places to be!

For breakfast, we ate in the hotel and it was really good. We had the full English and I was indeed super full after it!

I can’t fault anything about our stay with Mercure; the staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home, the food was lovely and the room was perfect for what we needed… a good nights sleep! I wouldn’t hesitate to return to this, or another Mercure hotels after this experience.

    I recently stayed at the Mercure for my graduation (I’ve just graduated from St.Hilda’s College Oxford (and recently done a blogpost on my bizarre graduation ceremony from Oxford on my blog). My parents loved the central location but thought the rooms were pretty small for the price! Love your blog – glad I stumbled upon it!

  2. […] August We started the month with a date day, we went to a wedding, and another wedding, and we went to the launch party for KERB. We also spent the weekend in Oxford where we did some Go Ape, hired a Car and stayed with the lovely Mercure team. […]

  3. […] then hopped back in the car for another 30 miles to our hotel in Oxford. The little car was great for tiny cobbled streets and little car parking […]
