About

From the dreaming spires of its county town to its quaint honey-hued villages, superb retail therapy to stunning stately homes, Oxfordshire blends rural splendour with city sophistication like no other English county. And in the middle of it all, surrounded by 134 acres of rolling hills, you’ll find the superb Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa resort.

A luxury hideaway crammed with more leisure opportunities than you can swing a golf club at, the family-owned estate offers a complete escape from the hustle and bustle. Situated at the end of a tree-lined road, the hotel is contemporary in style both inside and out, with purpose-built resort-style buildings that allow all areas to feel extra spacious. 

The resort's 9-hole course is one of the best in the country. But if you’re not a fan of the sport of kings, don’t worry. There’s so much to do here you’ll be wishing there were more hours in the day. Fitness fans will love the health club with its 20m indoor pool, gym and studio. Get competitive with a game of tennis or padel, try a spot of paddle boarding at the outdoor swimming lake. There’s even an assault course and running track at the on-site Performance Centre.

But if all that sounds a bit too energetic, there’s nothing stopping you from just drifting round its Forest of Wellbeing spa, cocooned in your snuggly robe and slippers. Seven luxurious treatment rooms offer marine-based Thalgo treatments to rejuvenate body and soul, plus there’s a thermal suite and even a tranquil private spa garden with an outdoor hot tub.

The famous Bicester Village outlet shopping centre is just a couple of miles from here, so prepare for some extensive retail therapy. If you’re a history buff, head to Rousham House and explore the home and grounds. In nearby Oxford, you’ll find a number of wonderful landmarks, including the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera.

After a long day of shopping, spa-ing and spoiling yourself, you can enjoy a delicious meal in the cosy ambiance of Grays Restaurant before floating off to bed. With more than 50 exquisite bedrooms, overnight stays are every bit as memorable as the stunning resort itself.

The Spa & Wellness at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa

Renew, relax, revitalise at the stunning Forest of Wellbeing Spa at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa. Whether you’re looking to get pampered, recharge, or look good,, you’ll be longing for more hours in the day to enjoy all the well-being offerings available. 

First stop, the pool. At 20m it’s long enough for laps, or just pull up a comfy bed and lay back for some poolside lounging. Flit from spa pools to steam room, to sauna, and back again. And if the foot spas doesn’t tempt you, the experience showers surely will. 

A quick slipper shuffle takes you to the private spa garden, where you can unwind in the fresh air. Feel the sun on your face on a lounger, or try an outdoor hot tub or sauna.

Then, when it’s time for your treatment, there’s a menu of Thalgo treatments designed to spoil you, whether you’re seeking beautiful skin or inner calm. Pure and natural, and made with soothing marine minerals, they’re deeply nurturing for your whole wellbeing. 

Lay back in the relaxation room to drift off after your treatment. But since you're going to be feeling amazing, you might as well look it, too. From shiny nails that reflect your inner light to waxing so you can feel silky smooth for weeks on end, this Bicester spa hits the spot when it comes to taking care of you.

The Gym & Fitness at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa

If your pampering break isn't complete without some form of work out, Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa has plenty of ways to help you sweat in style. Inside or outside, on the studio floor, on the assault course or even on a paddleboard - the fitness facilities here will (literally) take your breath away.

Whether you’re a serious athlete who runs triathlons for kicks, or a yoga bunny who prefers to feel zen rather than the burn, you’ll find everything you need to reach your full fitness potential.

The hotel’s health club has a gym packed with Matrix resistance and cardiovascular equipment to keep you entertained as you workout. Watch TV as you pedal, plod or pump, or connect your workouts to MyFitnessPal to see all the calories you’re burning.

Divided into two goal-oriented studios, the hotel offers 75 fun fitness classes 

each week. Bounce, groove and pump in the high-impact, high-octane Studio One, with a sound system pumping out the tunes for some dance-inspired classes. Like something a bit more mindful? Studio Two will be your home from home. Head here for ​​Ashtanga, Tai Chi or even a soul-soothing sound bath.

Serious fitness-istas should pay a visit to the Performance Centre. Open to everyone, its range of equipment will appeal to training enthusiasts, amateur weight-lifters and elite professional athletes, as well as those looking to improve their fitness. 

Get training for your next Tough Mudder at the Performance Centre’s assault course, try your hand at some paddleboarding or open-water swimming at the 200m long purpose built lake, or sweat, strut or stroll the outdoor running track.

But there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to fitness here. Even competitive types are well-catered for thanks to the on-site parkland golf course, padel courts and tennis courts. 

Restaurants & Food at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa

If all the fitness and pampering on offer wasn’t enough to make you feel spoiled, Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa is also home to some spectacular spaces in which to eat, drink and be merry. So where should you head for your post-massage cocktail?

Grays Restaurant

Grays Restaurant offers more than just à la carte dining - it's an experience to savour. With breathtaking views over the lake and golfing greens, enjoy afternoon teas and exquisite dinners, served alongside an expertly crafted cocktail (or two). Steaks and seafood are cooked to perfection, but rest assured that everything is local and sustainable. Veg and herbs are grown on the premises wherever possible, the fish they purchase is traceable to the source, while meat is bought from local butchers using only local farms.

Bar Nineteen

Fact. The 19th hole is always the best part of any golf course.. And with stunning views across the putting green and the fairways beyond, you’ll feel like you’re actually on the course! Drink in all the action outside with a coffee or something bubbly in hand. And, from the Grand Prix to Wimbledon, if there’s any big sporting occasion to be had, chances are they’ll be showing it on one of their huge TV screens. With a modern, fun vibe, enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a cocktail.

Lovely spa with good facilities. Treatments excellent (great body scrub) and 2 course lunch (limited choice) but delicious.

Love the spa facilities especially outdoors in the sun. Entrance to spa has changed as has the ‘buffet’ lunch which is now a waitress served small selection from their Bar 19 menu rather than self service. You choose two out of three courses. Staff were polite and helpful and our 30 minutes wait for a starter came with an apology. The new meal arrangements could disappoint people that have been previously as it had been one of the highlights of the day. Limited vegetarian choice.

My friend and I had a very relaxing day, enjoying both the indoor facilities and the outdoor hot tub in the spa garden. A 2 course lunch was part of our package and food was good quality and plentiful. Discrete and helpful staff all day. We were there Tuesday daytime and it was quiet, max 4 people in any pool. Jacuzzis were huge and there’s a tropicarium in the changing room to plus a relaxation room. Just be aware children come in for swimming lessons at 4pm, noise levels suddenly increased and we were glad our session finished at 4pm

We all enjoyed the evening meal. Courteous waiting staff. Bedroom was clean and comfortable. It was lovely to be able to make a cup of tea when we arrived. The massage and facial were a bit disorganised and we ended up having to complete forms before we started our treatments. I feel the 30 minutes time slots were not therefore fully used for treatment. I noticed my son came out from his treatment a good 5 minutes before the 30 minutes was up (clock in swimming pool area). In the spa /swimming areas, the labelling on the doors could be clearer and in black font (I normally need spectacles but as I was going from my treatment to the swimming pool, I had left the glasses in my bedroom). Nice breakfast. Stunning view from the bedroom window-thanks!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa do afternoon tea?

If you think life’s too short to eat boring food, you’re in the right place. The afternoon tea at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa resort is a must-try, and this sumptuous treat is made all the sweeter thanks to the classic elegance of Gray’s Restaurant with its sweeping views over the lake and golf course.. 

Served daily from 12pm to 4.30pm, you’ll sip and scoff your way through three tiers of pure indulgence - think cute cakes, tempting tarts, flavourful savouries, and crumbly warm scones. Choose from a menu of tea blends and speciality coffees, or add a splash of Prosecco if you fancy some extra sparkle.

Does Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa have a swimming pool?

It does. The attractive indoor swimming pool at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa has 20 glorious metres to swim in, so it’s ideal for lengths, laps or just for lounging beside, book in hand. There’s a dedicated lane for serious swimmers, as well as a separate hydrotherapy pool with heated water jets to relax in. 

But if you’ve always fancied reaping the mental and physical benefits of a spot of cold-water swimming, now’s your chance. The hotel is home to its own outdoor performance lake, a 200m body of water that’s part of the on-site Performance Centre. The purpose-built lake is naturally fed and filtered and every session is lifeguarded - you can even have a go at paddleboarding. Although it’s open all year round, swimming hours vary as they’re based on the season

What time is check-in and check-out at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa?

Check-in is from 3pm and check-out is at 11am.

Is there disabled access at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa?

Yes there is. Alongside accessible parking the hotel has four fully accessible rooms with wider doors. Each one is spacious and boasts wet-rooms with seats, handrails and lowered sinks. 

Grays Restaurant, Bar Nineteen, the spa and swimming pool are all located on the ground floor of the hotel and feature wide doorways. The spa and gym are wheelchair accessible with a lift to the first floor, but please note there is no pool hoist and the only way into the water is via steps.

How many rooms are there at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa?

Thinking of booking an overnight spa package to Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa? You’re in for a treat. There are 52 luxury bedrooms, offering five different styles of accommodation, from Classic Rooms to Junior Suites. All rooms have contemporary décor and many boast views, either of the undulating fairways or the inner courtyard garden. Several rooms on the first floor have gorgeous Juliet balconies.

What should I pack for Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa?

If you’re here on a spa day, Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa will provide the towel, robe and slippers, so just pack a swimming costume - or two so that you’ve got a dry one to change into for your treatment. 

Other than that, bring your gym kit, trainers and a water bottle so you can keep fit and have fun with a group class or work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art fitness suite. Don’t forget a good book for all that lounging you’ll be doing, and if your package includes dinner or afternoon tea at Gray’s Restaurant you might feel more comfortable if you’ve brought some smart-casual clothing to wear.

Where is Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa located?

The hotel can be found on the outskirts of Bicester in Oxfordshire, approximately four miles from Bicester Village train station. The famous designer outlet retail centre is just two miles away. 

What is there to do at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa?

You can make your stay at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa every bit as laid-back or as action-packed as you like. For the adventurous there’s open-water swimming, paddleboarding or an assault course to scramble over. Sporty type? Swing by the golf course or driving range, have a game of doubles at the tennis courts, or try your hand at padel tennis (a fun mix of squash and tennis). 

Fitness lovers will enjoy the extensive gym with its Matrix resistance and cardiovascular equipment, or there’s a full timetable of classes to sweat your way through,from three studios dedicated to your body, mind and soul.

But if that’s all sounding a bit too energetic, you could just spend all day in the spa with its indoor pool, hydro pool and thermal suite! It even has a spa garden complete with outdoor sauna, hot tub and sun loungers. Just make sure you leave time for a Thalgo ritual from one of the seven sumptuous treatment rooms.

What is there to do near Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa?

The big draw has to be the luxurious designer outlet centre in Bicester Village. In fact if you’re a fan of all things retail, the hotel offers special spa and shopping packages which come with additional discounts and a VIP pass!  

But if you don’t mind heading slightly further afield, a 20-minute drive takes you to Oxford where sightseeing and shopping opportunities abound. Or head to nearby Blenheim Palace - it’s the birthplace of Winston Churchill and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Is Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa family friendly?

It is. Many rooms can accommodate z-beds for younger family members, or opt for interconnecting rooms that allow you all to spread out. 

While treatments and thermal experiences in the spa are for those aged 16 and over, kids can splash in the indoor pool between 8am and 10pm and 4pm to 6pm every day. Over at the outdoor swimming lake, the minimum age is 10 and your little water babies need to be able to swim 200m comfortably. 

Is Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa dog-friendly?

Sorry. Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa resort is a doggy-free zone. Pets can’t set a paw in the hotel unless they’re specifically trained as service dogs - for example guide dogs for the blind or hard of hearing.

Does Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa have a golf course?

Love to spa and par? You’re in luck. A little birdie told us that the Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa resort does indeed have its own golf course, and a fabulous one at that. Recently renovated to add new bunkers, water hazards and some wonderfully large, tricky greens, this par 71 course boasts 36 tee structures and seven lake systems. 

There’s an interactive driving range for those looking to improve their swing, and a clubhouse called Bar Nineteen which overlooks the stunning parkland course. You don’t need to be a member to play golf here, just book your tee-time with the Pro Shop to pay and play. Or why not try a spa package which includes a round?
