Together with my wife I visited the Old Parsonage Hotel in Oxford, England, and it was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. It is probably the most charming hotel I have ever visited (and I have been to a lot). The historic and charming atmosphere, beautiful and dignified old building and furniture, very friendly staff.

I recently returned to have afternoon tea and scones at the Old Parsonage. There were seven of us and the service was excellent and the staff were all very attentive. It was a little expensive but well worth it, no one tried to rush us and we spent several hours chatting between ourselves while they topped up our tea pots.... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Old Parsonage. The hotel reception paid attention to every detail, our room was large and the furnishings all new and beautiful. The stairs are windy but the staff carried our bags cheerfully up and down. The new library is a great spot where we took our afternoon tea. We had breakfast included and... More

We recently traveled to Oxford from America to visit the university, and because the Old Bank was sold out, we stayed at the Old Parsonage. The hotel was very charming and a lovely place to have a nice meal in an intimate location. The receptionists were really nice. However, the prices are extremely high for rooms called "junior suites" that... More

This is a good hotel, with an excellent location. It is pricey, but that reflects the dearth of hotels in Oxford City Centre. The breakfast is good quality and the staff helpful and friendly. I'd stay here again, I just need to remember my wallet!

We stayed in this hotel in May 2014, the hotel is absolutely beautiful as is the decor. The staff are very welcoming and the food is delicious. Our room was tastefully decorated. It is also in a very good location, We will definitely be returning to the old parsonage!

Having read the previous review I agree. The hotel is great with a mix of rustic and boutique. Food was good and the garden is great! Afternoon read very good some of the service needs some personalisation The location is good very close to the town centre. A moments walks away from all the action. There is a quaint church... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Old Parsonage. The central location is ideal for exploring the city centre and our room was very comfortable. It definitely has a boutique feel to it, and the soft sheets, plush pillows, enormous fluffy bath towels and Noble Isle bath products were a real treat. My one complaint about the Old Parsonage...

This hotel is very pleasant and the staff are full of enthusiasm. They need to be to carry your bags up the very narrow winding staircases but as long as you allow them to take the strain that is no problem. The location just to the north of the centre near to Somerville and Keble colleges is perfectly convenient to... More
