This intimate luxury hotel has it all. Cosy, characterful, warm and welcoming, it is has the most convenient location within walking distance of most major City attractions plus the bonus of reserved parking for residents. Our bedroom was not huge but adequately sized, with high quality fabrics, furniture and fittings (only gripe was the lack of tea making facility). Enjoyed... More

Spent one very elegant and comfortable night and wish it could have been longer. A brilliant fusion of ancient and modern. Staff were very welcoming and took trouble with several enquiries. The most comfortable bed I've slept in for years. Only one thing missing: no tea/coffee making facility offered in room.

Visited on Saturday night for a family meal, service was excellent, food was delicious, (especially the rabbit pie) and the restaurant was buzzing with a great atmosphere. We can't wait to visit again.

This hotel is a very small hotel with great rooms. The afternoon tea is beyond words. Definitely the best hotel to stay at in Oxford. The food is very English and the service is very helpful as well as good. Would be very surprised if I did not stay here the next time I visit Oxford.

I arranged for my mum's 90th birthday celebration here. Aunts and uncles came in from London to meet for a surprise lunch. The food was exquisite, service amazing. Just a wonderful experience. Thank you. We will be back soon! We had the lunch menu and some wonderful wine and drinks. It was fabulous, the food was beyond delicious.

Room on top floor at back was excellent, bed very comfortable, excellent linen bath room superb. Dab radio excellent television. 2. The lobby, while small is full... More

For my first time back in Oxford in many years, my wife and I followed the advice of local Oxford friends and stayed two nights at The Old Parsonage. I was initially hesitant as it is rather pricey. I'm glad that I took their advice. I was impressed from the first moment that I walked in, a lovely wood fire... More

Really enjoyed a couple of nights here between Christmas and New a Year. Our bedroom was very nicely furnished with tasteful decor. I had not been back since they refurbished a few years ago but was pleasantly surprised that the hotel has list none of its old charm. Don't bother with the set breakfast at nearly £20, we ate more... More

We have known this hotel for more than 45 years and it just gets better and better! It has retained all of its old world charm while offering the very best of modern comfort, service and food. Our latest visit was on Boxing day when most places are a bit overstretched. Not the Old Parsonage. The staff were charming, relaxed... More

A very nice and friendly hotel. The bedroom was quiet with a great shower and a lovely big bed. Very nice bedding. The scones were warm and freshly cooked. The staff were very friendly. A tiny downside was running out of orange juice. The coating fire made up for that though.
