We stayed 3 nights in this excellent boutique hotel. Its very well located with easy walks to many of the colleges and key sites in Oxford. The building is very atmospheric and the rooms well appointed and comfortable. The hotel may in part be very old but the rooms are modern. The hotel has a restaurant and also a much... More

I hosted a cocktail party at the Old Parsonage. They were impeccably organized and adaptable, which was reassuring given that it was a downpour on the day of my (outdoor) event. The set up and service were lovely, and the staff went out of their way to make the event a success. This is a lovely hotel for lunch, tea,... More

Recently took my parents for a champagne afternoon tea to celebrate their ruby wedding anniversary. It was absolutely fantastic, the food was delicious and the staff were very polite and highly professional. It was worth the money, and would highly recommend the champagne afternoon tea for anybody wanting to celebrate an occasion or have a special treat.

We stayed here for one night before our son's graduation a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The hotel is modernised beautifully, with an original exterior which is quaint and pleasing to the eye. The refurbishment has been carried out to a very high standard and the rooms/bathrooms are excellent, very comfortable and with some nice, individual... More

The outside of the hotel is very pretty, the photos due is justice but sadly the rooms are very small. When we checked in we ordered some food and we told the staff that my wife was highly allergic to nuts. When we ordered we were told that there was no nuts in the food but when my wife ate... More

I am uncertain as to what has triggered your ire; perhaps you are bowing to pressure from your wife, who has already left her own 1-star review of the Old Parsonage? Maybe the thanks and compliments you paid us on departure were masking your own disappointment, which has taken nearly 2 weeks to fully reveal itself? In any case, we... More

Three of us booked for afternoon tea and chose the high tea at 20.00 per person. It may seem expensive but it was excellent made even better by the surrounding garden, building and service. None of us had dinner that evening. We were there for 2 hours and there was absolutely no pressure to leave, we were made to feel... More

Considering the write up about the hotel we were extremely excited to stay at The Old Parsonage. However, it was difficult to find along the busy Oxford road; after contacting hotel reception we were probably no better off in finding it. Once arriving we found someone had taken our reserved parking space as parking was very limited this caused some... More

I am sorry you found your stay to be a disappointment. I was pleased that you brought matters to my attention whilst you were with us, allowing me to offer explanation or apology. We did discuss the various incidents that had conspired to frustrate you on the first night of your visit and we agreed that it was their cumulative... More

Did not enjoy my stay at the old parsonage, the staff were rude and the service was pretty shoddy. The rooms are very small and not worth the money. Location wise it is all a little far out of town for my liking, if I could do the trip again I would stay at the old bank hotel as I've... More

I am sorry you deemed your stay at the Old Parsonage worthy only of a single star. It has been several years since we last received this lowly accolade. As previous reviews attest, the vast majority of our guests would beg to differ and I cannot be alone in taking exception to your description of ‘rude’ staff and ‘shoddy’ service.... More

We were a large family party gathering for my father's 80th birthday. The location was excellent for seeing Oxford. The staff were very accomodating and pleasant, the rooms were lovely. We ate a delicious dinner on the lovely terrace in front of the hotel. Was altogether very successful stay.
