The Atmosphere

It’s cool, yet quite minimalist.

It goes straight to the point. The room is not huge, yet the space is well-thought and super practical. So that there is no waste.

We got an interconnecting room and the décor was truly beautiful. It looked very natural, even minimalist.

Oxford & Its Nearby Villages

We also made the most of the area while we were there. As Mollie’s Motel & Diner Oxfordshire is so close to Oxford, we stopped by the beautiful Blenheim Palace for a bit of histoire.

But we also stopped by Witney and Abingdon where I went for a bit of vintage shopping in both the market towns.

And we even had a drink by the river, looking at the Oxford University Boat Club training! It was like being in a Midsomer Murders episode!

A Cliché? Not quite!

We absolutely LOVED our historical trip to Oxford. From the 18th century to the 50s, we traveled in time for sure!

    I have never visited Oxford before but always wanted to. I guess when we have holidays, we always think abroad but there are so many nice places in the UK we should visit. The motel does look stunning. It sure doesn’t look like any motel I’ve been to in America, haha. I love the vintage wood look, so stylish, elegant and cosy. I also like any hotel that has an interconnecting room for the kiddies, haha. If we ever plan to visit Oxford, I will definitely check out Mollies Motel
