My wife and I had to rebook in the Old Parsonage Hotel due to the fire at the Randolph Hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. The staff at reception and the restaurant were very friendly and accommodating. We loved our updated cozy room and bathroom with heated floors. We enjoyed sitting in the contemporary library that had plenty of windows...

We were originally booked in at the Randolph. But due to the recent fire had to change our hotel. We are really glad we did. This is a wonderful hotel. Recently refurbished to a high standard. Great location 10 min walk to centre and very quiet. The staff were exceptionally helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Recently renovated and re-opened, the Old Parsonage Hotel is in the heart of St Giles, an easy ten minute walk from the Broad, and the heart of town. With an open fire, lovely dining room, modern rooms and great showers this hotel is a gem.

The Old Parsonage Hotel is a remarkable boutique hotel in Oxford, with a cosy and charming decoration in a small historic building. Naturally, most rooms are small, but still comfortable. The restaurant is very good and the service is nice and friendly. Location is conveniently near many of the University's beautiful colleges.

Best place around. Great service and just very very pleasant. Lived in Oxford for 25 years and this place has just undergone a refurb and they have got it right. Great food and a lovely escape right near town. If you want a treat or the best then go!

I booked us into the Old Parsonage Hotel for my husband's birthday. Right from the start it was a great experience. We arrived at 11.15 am and were allowed to check in straight away and were upgraded to a fantastic room in the old part of the hotel. We were so well looked after and our room was perfect in...

Stayed here one night courtesy of Oxford Univ. while on business travel. I had a small room facing the garden with a queen bed. Fine for one person but it would be very cosy for two. HVAC was quiet and working well. the temperature was perfect in the room. I had a big shower which I used twice. Many products...

Stayed two nights over Easter, having stayed at the Old Bank at the same time the year before. Hard to separate the two for quality & service very good in both. We had a junior suite, which was very tastefully decorated & cosy, although slightly small for £400 per night. Ensuite had a rainfall shower, but you had to stand...

We had a super meal at The Old Parsonage Hotel on Good Friday. The place has a really warm, homely feel about it, with the smell of the open log fire lingering. We were sat at a very pleasant window table, where we were able to have a private conversation as the tables were well spaced. The menu, we initially...
