Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel

The hotel has a central city location and is well known in the city.It is located on the south side of Oxford's High Street near to the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art and the Examination Schools of Oxford University. The hotel is a converted 17th-century coaching inn located at the corner of Merton Street on the site of the town wall's former east gate. The building was converted by Edward Prioleau Warren in 1899–1900 and the stuccoed style of the building echoes other 18th century buildings in Oxford. Local history reports of the sound of men in armour and sightings of English Civil War era Royalist soldiers passing through walls to the hotel's location on the site of the old east gate and speculates about a surprise attack by Parliamentarian forces. The hotel is also where C. S. Lewis and J R R Tolkien would meet in the hotel as it was halfway between the two University colleges (Merton and Magdalen).
