About the Oakley Court Hotel
The Oakley Court Hotel can be found in 35 acres of glorious grounds overlooking the River Thames, just outside the historic town of Windsor in Berkshire. It is a luxury manor house hotel set in a neo-Gothic mansion that will be instantly recognisable to many as the setting for the ‘St Trinian’s’ films, the ‘Rocky Horror Show’ and many Hammer Horror classics including ‘Dracula’. The dramatic character is engrained in every nook and cranny of this wonderful property; Oakley Court is a hotel with a difference and offers so much to the business and leisure customer.
Windsor’s Oakley Court dates from 1859 and features striking, bold architecture characteristic of the Gothic Revival era. It was originally designed in the style of a French Chateau, and it is fitting, therefore, that it was used as the headquarters of the French Resistance during the Second World War. Oakley Court gradually fell into decline after the war, and despite its flirtation with fame as a film set, by the 1970s the manor house was a shadow of its former self. Fortunately a bold plan transformed the Oakley Court into a traditional manor house hotel, with a programme of renovation and revitalisation that cost in the region of £5 million. The results were stunning, and today guests continue to be impressed by the grandeur and opulence of the hotel as it carries on offering some of the finest hotel facilities in the Royal County of Berkshire.
The Oakley Court Hotel Windsor enjoys a prime location, with convenient access by road via the M4 motorway. It offers an excellent base from which to explore the many delights of Berkshire; the historic town of Windsor is just 10 minutes away and is one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations with its inextricable links with the British Royal Family and of course Windsor Castle. Finally, the hotel, with its 118 sumptuous rooms, award-winning restaurant and excellent leisure facilities, will certainly appeal to leisure visitors as a conveniently close yet delightfully secluded getaway. And with 10 refurbished and state-of-the-art meeting rooms on offer, business visitors too will be suitably impressed. Further, the Oakley Court Hotel is also a simply stunning wedding venue.
