Oxford House Sydney Ausralia Hotel

Sydney, Australia

Ideal for a city stay while exploring Down Under, this neighbourhood affair makes a great jumping-off point to take in the Opera House, Royal Botanic Garden, The Rocks, Bondi et al. Serving up an artistic homage to motel culture with 56 generous rooms in the boutique-lined heart of Sydney’s Paddington, expect a rough-luxe riff on mid-century Californian design tropes: pared-back pastel hues, colour pops, bold art pieces (curated by George Gorrow) and soft-edged furniture.
A plant-clad courtyard frames a neat pool area plus a bar that does a fine line in the hotel’s signature spicy OH! margarita. Here, and at flagship OH restaurant – its window booths framing vibrant snapshots of life in the hood – a modern Pacific menu emphasises regional organic ingredients along the lines of Sydney rock oysters with chrysanthemum and a lemon vinaigrette. A bonus is the digital art show beamed across the pool on weekends.
