Regular visit - Oxford on Avon Hotel

Oxford on Avon Hotel Those who haven't had a meal or a drink at the popular Oxford on Avon incorporating Chloes Bar in Colombo Street Christchurch are far outweighed by those who have.

Part of the community for many years, the Oxford on Avon recently received a long deserved facelift to rejuvenate its previously painted plastered concrete exterior. Keen to continue with a formula that had worked well, the exterior was coated in two coats of Resene Hi-Glo high gloss acrylic duplicating a paint system that had been used many years prior.

Located opposite Victoria Square public expectations demanded that the building's appeal matched the popularity of the park in a light norwester. This was achieved with ease using a soothing respectful palette of Resene Holly (dark green), Resene Mineshaft (deep grey), Resene Stack (grey) and Resene Silver Chalice (light grey) to highlight the natural beauty of the building.

With the painting complete, the exterior is now a fitting wrapper for the good meals, good drinks, good company and good times that await guests inside.
