The Oxfordshire Golf Club’s 50-bedroom Hotel & Spa will open in July 2010 and provide a state-of-the art destination close to the M40 at Thame for business and leisure travellers alike.
Golfers in both categories are likely to be attracted by The Oxfordshire’s existing championship golf course, the only one in the country to be designed by Rees Jones, pioneer of the modern American ‘parkland’ style. But the four-star hotel will also attract general tourists and business travelers with its luxury spa and 15-metre pool; and a signature restaurant overseen by Head Chef Richard Buy.
The Oxfordshire will be managed by Tim Pettifer, formerly General Manager of world-famous Cliveden House, who has been brought on board for the purpose.
The styling of the hotel has been personally overseen by Jennifer Gibbons, joint owner along with Paul Gibbons, its design a contemporary interpretation of traditional English Country House style.
Tim Pettifer, General Manager of the new hotel, says: “This is a very good period for us to be opening. Being this close to Oxford – and its newly renamed London Oxford Airport – we will be top of the list for luxury tourism and business travel, especially for those travelers interested in trying a championship golf course during their stay.
Full golf training and a quality Pro shop will be available to hotel guests.
