We stayed at the Old Parsonage to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. The location is excellent. Close enough to the centre to walk (or bike) but just far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. The service was superb from the reserved parking, check in and bar/restaurant. The room was lovely. Not huge but immaculately clean with a...

A truly beautiful hotel made even better by excellent service. I stayed as part of an international group in oxford for a client conference and the foreign guests loved what is a quintessentially English luxury hotel. There are some steps to some of the rooms but the team here are very happy to help with luggage, and pretty much anything...

Perfectly located to explore the back alleyways, parking is a premium in Oxford so the fact there was parking major plus. Check in was problematic, however Toby was on hand to downplay the incident. A pot tea on arrival was a personal touch. Restaurant as good as one would get in UK, excellent wine list. Rooms modern and immaculate detail....

My family of 6 (wife and our 4 kids) spent two nights and the Old Parsonage during our stay in Oxford. The accommodations were excellent and the staff very courteous. The restaurant was wonderful. The location is ideal (walking distance to most attractions in Oxford). I would highly recommend this hotel.

So the location is good, the hotel has charm (parking better at the Old Bank) and one has to love the little touches like the fire in the reception/bar and the library now on the 1st floor. Thankfully suitcases are brought up for guests as there are many little ups and downs to most rooms. The rooms are of good...

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Very pleased to hear you enjoyed your return visit. I am sorry I did not immediately recognise you upon arrival.

This is a lovely hotel set in a beautiful 17th Century old inn near the center of Oxford. There are so many lovely extras with this hotel. They provide bikes free for staying guests-a good way to see Oxford. They also offer a free guided tour of Oxford led by their resident historian every day. Guests can relax and imbibe...

I booked this trip for my husband and I as a last minute on the day getaway. What an absolute gem this hotel is! I had originally booked the Macdonald Randolph Hotel but after reading the reviews, I stumbled across the Old Parsonage and without hesitation, cancelled the Randolph. I rang up the hotel and mentioned we would be in...

Stayed here for one night. It is a very comfortable hotel with good decor and welcome. It is the most expensive hotel in Oxford and our expectations were high. The room was on the top floor (45 steps from car park to room) which would be quite difficult for the elderly. Toiletries included and so were slippers and bath robes...

I stayed here for several days for business. It has an excellent location. It wasn't far from the Gloucester Green bus terminal, and several buses drop off/pick up right outside.
