We stayed here at the end of our visit to the UK. We had stayed in a number of wonderful properties but this was the best one. The renovation has brought this boutique hotel up to the highest possible standard but you still have the fun of staying in a building dating back to the 1600s. We had an oversized...

Thank you for your kind words. Our 'can do' attitude ensures that the blind man will be here before the weekend, to measure the bathroom window. As the nights draw in and the leaves tumble, greater discretion will provided...

We always try a little constructive criticism. I cannot think of anything more I could ask, beautiful food, attentive polite staff, a beautiful interior and exterior as well as a great location.

Stayed for a couple of nights here for our 25th wedding anniversary and we could not fault this beautiful hotel. Absolutely spotless accomodation, perfectly situated for sight-seeing, food excellent, staff friendly, extremely helpful and professional. We can't praise this lovely place enough. Will definitely be staying here again!

I had a hard time choosing a place to stay in Oxford but I'm glad I ultimately picked this one. Our room was very comfortable and quiet...given that we were getting over jet lag we appreciated that. And the staff of the hotel and restaurant were attentive and accommodating. For those interested in sightseeing, the hotel is near the bus...

We are a group of four 40 something girlfriends who enjoyed two nights at the Old Parsonage. We were impressed by the hotel itself, a great look and spotlessly clean. The hotel employs a lot of staff all of whom were attentive and went out of their way to ensure that we had a memorable stay. We ate in the...

I have been coming to the Old Parsonage for a few years, but this is my first visit since the refurbishment. The food was excellent, the service was brilliant, the atmosphere was as sumptuous as ever and the overall experience is one of, if not, the best, in Oxford.

Our return visit there, after a much awaited for reopening, proved somewhat of a disappointment. The restaurant is still elegant and beautifully decorated with period oil paintings and a burning fireplace. There is also a lovely, smaller room to the side for more intimate dining or private parties. We started with cocktails from the bar, which were nicely prepared. The...

We are used to paying £300 plus a night in five star boutique hotels but in comparison we felt the OP was over priced at £370 for a deluxe double room (excluding breakfast) and offers nothing special to warrant the inflated price, despite being in expensive Oxford within easy walking distance of the heart of the city. Having said this,...
