My wife is a big fan of Morse and during a recent stay in Oxford we decided to visit the Morse Bar at the Macdonald Randolph Hotel. We went to the bar to order our drinks, however a member of staff asked us to take a seat and said that someone would come over to take our order: that someone... More

The decor of this hotel is lovely and the staff are incredibly helpful and polite. The location of the hotel is ideal as it is in the city center but the car park is small so you may not find parking in site. We would definitely here stay again.

As a family of 5 (two adults and three teenagers) we were looking forward to another visit to the beautiful city of Oxford. However, this hotel was a disappointment. Not what we expected from a 5* hotel. On arrival (around 8.30pm, not too late) there was no one to help with our baggage to the reception area or to our... More

I must begin by explaining that the staff were very attentive and wonderfully professional- afternoon tea was very pleasant and a reasonable price- a nice experience. The interior was once grand but now somewhat tired- the bar area was small and cramped- although I didn't sit there that was what I observed. It was a nice way to spend an... More

Wonderful hotel, in a fabulous location. We only live 15 miles down the road but stayed as a birthday treat. At check in, we were upgraded to an Executive Suite (rm25). Fabulous. Spotlessly clean, wonderful service and really felt well looked after. The staff couldn't do enough for you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

We visited the spa on a day trip to the city but didn't stay overnight at the Macdonald Randolph. The lobby, spa facilities and the public bar were all wonderfully appointed and we very much enjoyed a relaxing drink after our spa package. However, the spa itself was not what it should have been. Whilst the jacuzzi and saunas were... More

The Randolph is everything you would expect from a 5* luxury hotel. We felt pampered from the moment the concierge took away the car for valet parking. The rooms are elegant, sophisticated and tasteful whilst exuding luxury. Tiny things like the welcome chocolates and bottles of sparkling and still water in the room add to the feeling of total comfort,... More

I stayed at the Randolph after seeing a really great offer for a room for two nights. My stay was fantastic. The staff looked after me so well, from the moment I arrived at the front door - concierge to the great meals - and breakfasts I enjoyed in the restaurant. A particular mention for Yuhan, a waitress and Andrew... More

This is an iconic building in a city filled with iconic buildings directly across from the Ashmolean Museum. The On and Off bus stops right there and it is really quite well worth your time. Our room was cozy and charming if you can forgive the view of a solid brick wall. We had such a splendid dinner in the... More

Thank you for your kind review. I am sorry that your room did not boast a front facing view. The hotel is completely landlocked and not all our bedrooms offer a front facing outlook. We will endeavour to meet guest requests but cannot guarantee this. I do hope that we can be of service to you in the future. Kind... More

Great location and whilst some of the rooms are a little shabby the place has a comfortable and homely feel. A cocktail in the Morse Bar not to be missed. What sets it apart is the service from the moment you check in. We were really impressed with that - Jake on reception in particular was outstanding. We are looking... More
