I booked us into the Old Parsonage Hotel for my husband's birthday. Right from the start it was a great experience. We arrived at 11.15 am and were allowed to check in straight away and were upgraded to a fantastic room in the old part of the hotel. We were so well looked after and our room was perfect in...

Stayed here one night courtesy of Oxford Univ. while on business travel. I had a small room facing the garden with a queen bed. Fine for one person but it would be very cosy for two. HVAC was quiet and working well. the temperature was perfect in the room. I had a big shower which I used twice. Many products... More

Stayed two nights over Easter, having stayed at the Old Bank at the same time the year before. Hard to separate the two for quality & service very good in both. We had a junior suite, which was very tastefully decorated & cosy, although slightly small for £400 per night. Ensuite had a rainfall shower, but you had to stand... More

We had a super meal at The Old Parsonage Hotel on Good Friday. The place has a really warm, homely feel about it, with the smell of the open log fire lingering. We were sat at a very pleasant window table, where we were able to have a private conversation as the tables were well spaced. The menu, we initially... More

Simply everything you expect from a boutique hotel. Very traditional and British but with a touch of modern. Loved the fireplace, the warm and charming ambiance in the "Lobby". The library on the second room is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy a short break after a long walking day.Very Helpful Staff. Ask for the free walking tour.The breakfast... More

We came to The Old Parsonage Hotel for Afternoon Tea on March 29th with our best friends as part of her 50th birthday celebrations. What a thoroughly charming place with helpful attentive staff who served us the most delightful Afternoon Tea. I rang a couple of days before to ask if they could help me with parking as I am...

Oscar Wilde - who stayed here - told that his taste was simple: the best was always good enough. This lovely old parsonage with medieval doors, fireplace and library must have appealed to him. Simply a very good place to visit Oxford from.

A great venue for the family to get together and celebrate my 60th birthday. This old hotel has great atmosphere and the renovations have been carefully done to retain its character. The bedrooms are very comfortable and have been decorated to an excellent standard. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner in the hotel's restaurant that offered an excellent choice of champagne,... More

Very enjoyable stay. Excellent friendly service. Car parking surprisingly easy for Oxford. Well designed room. Lovely food. Only one slightly negative comment, the tables felt a little close together in the restaurant.

This is an excellent , stylish hotel with great attention to detail. The service is exemplary and it made our stay that much more enjoyable. We had booked a deluxe double but when I discovered it didn't have a bath ( there was a beautifully designed shower room with little seat and acres of marble!) and expressed disappointment we were...
