Bed & Breakfast

Stay in Arne Jacobsen’s Modernist masterpiece in the beautiful city of Oxford

St Catherine’s is conveniently located in a peaceful setting within the city of Oxford and, during the College vacations, where we have availability, we often offer bed & breakfast accommodation within our beautiful grounds. Guests are accommodated in our simple, light and airy study bedrooms (occupied by students in term time) in buildings of modern architectural interest with windows largely overlooking our lawned quadrangle, gardens, trees, river or meadows. Our original (1960s) buildings are Grade 1 Listed – something incredibly rare for post-Second World War architecture – and showcase Danish architect Arne Jacobsen’s iconic modernist design, echoing traditional Oxford values, but with a unique modernist twist.

"The tranquil setting close to town was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful, accommodation was clean and well-serviced. Also it was reassuring to have the 24 hour Lodge Porter service. I would have no hesitation in returning again."
