Congratulations to our neighbour just a few streets away The Vanbrugh Hotel who have been awarded the Best Boutique Stay award in the prestigious Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017.  The lack of hotel accommodation at all in oxford, let alone ones you can really recommend to friends, family and clients, is a really well documented problem in the city. Whilst a number of new hotels are set to be opening in to our city (Easy Hotel have just this week announced the signing up of a new lease, and a new Premier Inn is coming in next to the Westgate Shopping centre) they won't be opening for some time and will aim to serve the budget end of the market. This small but stylish city centre hotel, rather hidden away in a small side street is is well deserving of this award and definitely one to recommend. Well done to the fabulous Hero Brown who runs Muddy Stilettos for flying the flag for Oxfordshire independents and small businesses.
