We were so happy during our stay! My parents and I stayed at the hotel because I had my graduation ceremony, when the hotel found out, they were kind enough to send us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Also, we requested to have a meal at the restaurant twice without a reservation and the manager went above and beyond to find us a table despite being fully booked. The entire staff was super friendly and helpful. We are definitely coming back and fully recommend staying here!

Very impressed. The room was of a very high standard, great atmosphere in the communal areas. The curation of art and prints around the whole property is very impressive. Long time lover of Oxford, this is the perfect place to explore it from.

We dined at the Old Parsonage to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Booked a table at the last minute. Had a lovely evening. The menu offers a nice variety of vegetarian, fish, fowl and meat dishes. I won’t forget the “beet root hazelnut tartare”! Wine was good (we chose the Rioja). Deserts worth the extra effort ;-) Had a really great evening. Thank you. Hope to be back.

The hotel is superb and tastefully designed, rooms are spacious and quaint and the staff was polite and friendly. Location is great too and we appreciated the on site free parking. We enjoyed the hotel's restaurant a couple of times during our short stay and we will definitely try the 4 o'clock tea experience next time. It looked soooo good! We truly loved our stay here. The service, the room, the food.. everything was perfect!

We had lunch with friends in the comfortable and private Pike Room. The young man who looked after us throughout our meal was excellent. He was quietly always there when we needed him and attentive and accurate with our requests. The food was quite delicious. The whole experience was so good that we plan to repeat it on a regular basis.
