Castle Hill Resort (aka Colonel's Quarters)

So, full disclosure, we’re big fans of the 512 B&B.. But as we like to delve around the hospitality scene in Oxford, we decided to stay at Castle Hill Resort recently (formerly known as Colonel’s Quarters)

High level, I thought we’d share some quick snapshots we took of the hotel, and also throw in our two cents regarding the establishment.

Overall, it’s a well-appointed hotel. Darn nice rooms, quiet, free wifi, and flat screen tv’s.. The distance to town (5 miles) actually didn’t bother me, but we did have a few small sticking points. Outside of those, it’s well worth consideration when visiting town.

Our pros/cons:


  • during football season, you can usually find a room here on somewhat late notice
  • full bar
  • restaurant on-site
  • new’ish construction
  • views
  • pool


  • steep stairs – like climbing a small mountain
  • no shower in peggy’s room – just a tub (I found this out the hard way)
  • exit and entrance from Hwy 6 – tough both ways, ie. floor it / slam on brakes

And if you decide to stay a weekend, and love the place, you could drop a cool $3.9 Mil(now $2.5 Mil) and own the place yourself..(as it seems to now be for sale..)

  1. You’re absolutely right about the stairs going up to the bedrooms. They are dangerous. This was very poor planning on the architect’s part, but most likely the original owner & builder.

    Sounds like the original owners are cash strapped and just want out. This place is way over-built for the Oxford area. They’ll never see 2 million for it. The economy in this area will not adequately support this place as a business.

  2. Do you have availability for October 17-20, 2013?
