Perfect for our special occasion and really appreciated by all special guests. The bedrooms were delightful, late night drinks easy, breakfast particularly tasty. Two features stood out, the friendly and efficient staff and the wonderful character of the place; from original and fascinating local maps to the magical, secret garden (perfect for photo shots)! Not cheap, but sometimes you don't... More

Having lived in Oxford for many years, we thought we'd treat ourselves and stay here for a reunion lunch the following day. The location is unbeatable, right in the heart of the City, close to vibbrant Jericho (where we always hang out) and yet amazingly quiet and peaceful. The service is outstanding. Professional, yet informal and friendly. We stayed in... More

so, a group of us descended for a Nigerian/British wedding on Oxford. Often a challenge for any inflexible hotel. So, my room pretty small but 'perfectly formed'. obviously newly refurbished including the small but wait for it - perfect shower. Great strong pressure, mix of fixed top shower head and a hand held for your bits! Showers are key, right!?.... More

We visited mid week and decided on the afternoon tea (although the lunch menu did look very tempting). The sandwiches were tasty and well presented, and the scones were warm from the oven and pre-cut for you to open and pile on the jam and cream! I thought this was a nice touch. The range of teas is very good... More

This was our first visit to the Old Parsonage after their recent rennovation. Most of the effort went into making the guest rooms modern in design and furnishings. They succeeded well in their efforts. Luckily they preserved the facade and entrance area in its original form with only a new registration desk added. The superb service remains unchanged and breakfasts... More

This charming gem of a hotel is perfectly situated in Oxford- about 2 blocks from the center of town. The outside patio is a lovely place for tea or a drink, and their inside restaurant has so much character: walls lined with portraits, old fireplace, very luxurious bathroom. The room I was originally given was situated immediately above the fireplace... More

The Old Parsonage combines the charm of a graceful old building with the sleek interior design of a modern hotel. My room was just past the chic library they've put in, which includes a small terrace, and had a small balcony with a view of the back courtyard. The furnishings were thoughtfully chosen and of high quality, as were the... More

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
