I've been a customer for 15 years. I liked the food, the service and the décor, now all it is gone. The food would be good if you were convalescent, very plain, well done, but nothing I could do myself. Also, there are far too many tables, very small, but it makes the place feel crowded although we were the... More

My husband & I stayed here last week, it is undoubtedly a lovely place to visit, however if you are planning to stay here- check your room situation!! We were on the ground floor next to a linen cupboard and at 06.45 were woken by loudly conversing ladies outside our door!! Fifteen minutes or so later the sound of sawing... More

This hidden gem has been having a massive refurbishment and opens again soon. We were regular customers for afternoon tea-wonderful or lunch-marvellous or for dinner -divine. We are looking forward to finding out how the place has been improved and what new offerings are on the menu.

It's really lovely if your children have a place at university in Oxford, but it's not an easy city to find central good accommodation and none of it is cheap. The Old Parsonage manages to feel peaceful and almost rural whilst resting centrally on St Giles. The rooms are mostly not large and on one occasion we suffered with the... More

The location of this hotel is wonderful, near St Giles and all the colleges, but very peacefull too, I particularly liked the breakfasts here as well, highly recommended, especially if you are after value fro money, which this place definitely provides.

I had eaten at the restaurant here a couple of times and enjoyed the food and ambience immensely. However, the hotel doesn't live up to the restaurant in quality or decor. My room was a deluxe option and certainly spacious, but the decor was somewhat jaded and for privacy's sake I had to keep the curtains perpetually closed as the... More

Thank you for your comments. We are, at this very moment, closed for refurbishment and I am pleased to report that our ‘jaded décor’ has been consigned to history. Work continues apace and we on schedule to re-open at the end of March. I would like to clarify that the hotel gardens are private and for exclusive use of hotel... More

This is a charming boutique hotel with a very helpful and friendly staff. Granted, it's a little quirky in some ways (we had to transit the small dining room in order to access our suite), but we were charmed by the two sets of french doors that led from our suite to a semi-private garden containing a few wooden tables...

I spent 2 lovely nights here a very pleasant stay. The breakfast was plentiful and hot. A very central hotel with car parking. Unfortunately I didn't have lunch or dinner there , but the high teas looked good.

My husband and I stayed at the Old Parsonage in October. What a delightful place. The old building is very cozy and very well decorated. The room is quite comfortable, with a small terrace. The dining room is pretty cool and it is worth dinner at the hotel. Staff are helpful, despite a little confusion with the clothes we sent... More

My daughter & I, were there last September 2013. We were staying there for about 4 nights. Amazing, helpful & very welcoming staff. Our room is on the first floor with a view towards the little private courtyard. All in all, we have had a fantastic time and definitely would love to come back again, since my daughter now is...
