The Black Boy in Old Headington Oxford has launched five boutique bedrooms above its foodie pub to cater for the demand for rooms in the area.
The property, owned by Abigail and Chris Bentham, mentees of Raymond Blanc, has completely transformed the space above its pub into five deluxe bedrooms, complete with furniture, lighting and decor provided by the local Otmoor Collective. All of the guest art purchased goes to the collective.
Each of the bedrooms has an honesty bar, plus intelligent TVs, with chairs and tables from Jay & Co, art of Ian Roxburgh and a selection of nature-inspired features from Kathy Shaw.
Abigail Rose, general manager of The Black Boy, says: “The customer is at the heart of our mission with the hotel at The Black Boy, their every want catered for wherever possible, because we recognise that service is a substantial factor in a customer’s experience. Having established ourselves for our food and appreciative of the pressures on accommodation in and around Oxford, we knew we had an opportunity to deliver a quality and stylish offering at an affordable price.”
