I stayed here recently for three nights. Had a deluxe double room. Positives: Staff very friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. G Food was good but a little pricey. Room was good with all necessary facilities. Location is excellent. Negatives: Bar and restaurant area is one common area - so not always easy to have a drink...

Toby A, Front Office Manager at Old Parsonage Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your positive comments and constructive feedback; much appreciated. Our bar and restaurant is often full, particularly at weekends. Whilst this creates a vibrant buzz downstairs, it can preclude the opportunity for guests to enjoy a quiet aperitif or after dinner coffee. We created our first floor residents’ library in order to remedy this. An oasis of calm,...

The Old Parsonage is a hotel that we go back to time and again in Oxford. It has an excellent atmosphere, good food and is warm and welcoming. It is part of a group of hotels/eateries that includes The Old Bank Hotel and Quod Brasserie. Originally 17th century, it maintains a lot of the appearance of that period although much...

This is a truly special place to stay. The staff go out of their way to be helpful. This place represents the real traditional English hotel experience but with a modern twist. The restaurant is beautiful and the food - especially the breakfast - is superb. It is not cheap so be prepared to pay a lot for your stay...

This hotel works very hard to make its visitors happy. From inquiring the week before if we needed a parking place (at a premium in Oxford) to a substantial supply of umbrellas (for rainy days) and loaner bikes (for sunny days), there's not a lot one could do to improve. Some have mentioned the lack of elevators, but the staff...

We stayed in a junior suite here for a few nights, very nice room but for the price we expected more attention to detail. Not everyone drinks just coffee and the coffee maker was useless for making a cup of tea. Would have been more impressed if a decent kettle had been provided rather than the coffee maker and milk...

Brilliant new refurbishment - cost downstairs public areas with open fire and sensational new library on the roof. Service friendly but impeccable with good staff ratio. Bedrooms good and beds very comfortable. Good location for the centre and bars/cafes of Jericho together with nice ambiance - maybe not bohemian as the literature suggests but relaxed and unpretentious. Not cheap but...

This is a small hotel right in the middle of the city, but from the inside you'd never know it. It is quiet and homely, a lovely haven for a romantic weekend. After its overhaul early in 2014, it looks terrific inside and out. Our suite was pristine, new throughout, with digital stereo at the bedside, very nice TV, silent...
