Oxford House offers 56 rooms and three suites including the Junior, Arts and Oxford Terrace, the later latter boasting an expansive balcony overlooking the city.

Exclusively to hotel guests, the Oxford House pool, lined with greenery and relaxed lounge seating, is a truly unique space amid the pulse of Paddington offering guests an urban sanctuary, a place to relax and unwind.

Featuring all day street level dining, a first level poolside bar, OH! as the hotel is affectionately known, provides an urban oasis just a short stroll from the bustling street and nightlife.

Principal Designer at Public Hospitality, Tom de Plater said Oxford House is an inspired transformation of a historic property and an exciting new addition to Sydney hospitality.

“This was a unique opportunity to create an accommodation first for Paddington, provide a new hospitality experience for locals, and help energise an important part of town”, he said.

“Given the hotel’s enviable location – famed shopping, nightlife and Allianz stadium, all within walking distance, and the beach and city, a short drive away, we wanted to create a space that really felt like an unexpected escape; a hotel that was as relaxed as Oxford Street is lively”.

 “Whilst we took design notes from the sleek lines and muted colours of Palm Springs, it was important that Oxford House effortlessly threaded into the cultural fabric of Paddington, so art and design was key.

 “We collaborated with culture king, George Gorrow to showcase an incredible collection of art, paintings, photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture from artists including Lena Gustafson, Adam Turnbull and Niah McLeod throughout the property.”

 Oxford House features two dining experiences, designed for hotel guests and locals alike. On street level, Oxford House all day dining is a relaxed and welcoming space serving up modern Australian cuisine by executive chef Tyler Preston.

An edgy upcomer in hospitality circles with tenures at Chin Chin and Bang Bang, Preston delivers a refined yet unpretentious food that echoes the Oxford House aesthetic.

The restaurant will have an evolving menu throughout the day including five grain hand rolled bircher muesli with toasted seeds and seasonal fruit compote and berries, the OH-melette with woodside goats curd, chives and seasonal herbs salad and the mixed sauteed mushrooms, crispy kale, truffle oil, pecorino, poached egg and sourdough – alongside a selection of tea by La Maison Du Thé and cold pressed juice by Simon Says, made fresh daily and delivered by bicycle to the hotel from its Oxford Street locale.

Oxford House is the latest in an impressive line-up of new venues to open for Public Hospitality, a lifestyle group guided by a vision of Jon Adgemis and Peter Crinis to uncover the potential of heritage buildings and restore them to their former glory.

It closely follows their multi-level transformation of The Strand Hotel ((AccomNews, November 03) featuring a 17-bedroom hotel, ground floor bistro and newly launched Rooftop bar. Restorations of Alexandria’s Camelia Grove, Erskinville’s The Kurrajong and Balmain’s’ The Town Hall will follow in the coming months.
