Oxford, UK

This hotel is a perfect mix of country house charm and chic modern touches, situated in the heart of Oxford. It prides itself on striking the balance between old and new and being a luxury escape for its guests. They wanted the team at Ultimate Library to create a fully functioning and engaging library for their hotel, to help them stand out from the competition.

For this library we pulled together a collection of books that spoke to a sense of place not only in Oxford but Britain as well, titles like ‘The Secret History of Oxford’ and Wainwright’s ‘The English Village’ were selected to educate and entertain guests about the culture and history of Britain. We also mixed in titles on history and Science and global issues for the intellectual guest, and of course some great fiction for those looking to relax and escape. Our final touch was to add titles on food and wine which spoke to the luxury nature of the hotel.
