Visiting Oxford I couldn't think of a better location. The Oxford Playhouse just doors away, the wonderful museum across the road and an easy stroll to every other attraction. The hotel has been beautifully renovated, but is still extremely elegant and stylish. The service is exceptional and the dining room is to die for. I particularly liked being able to... More

We stayed for one night last weekend as we were attending a dinner in my husband's old college. There was a large wedding party in the hotel at the same time (we didn't notice any extra noise, just lots of people in wedding finery in the reception) so I imagine rooms were at a premium and we had been allocated...

What was once a great property is dying and it shows. Everywhere tired and depressed, including majority of the staff, with a full refurb it could be great. Not a fan of this operator as many of their properties in a similar state and its the $$$ that is lacking and holding it back. A short visit and it will... More

Stayed again in February after having a wonderful 5 night stay over Christmas. This hotel never fails to delight us, the charm and character of the building make it a very comfortable and welcoming hotel. The outstanding staff always go the extra mile to make the stay special. We always use the restaurant, after starting with cocktails in the bar... More

My partner and I stayed here after attending a friend's birthday in Oxford. We had managed to get a slightly cheaper rate due to a promotion at the time which meant it was only £40 or so more than the average price of other accomodation (Oxford is very expensive to stay in anyway!) so we thought it worth splashing out...

The hotel provides an excellent service and has a very friendly personnel. It's location is very favourable being opposite to Asmolean Museum and close to the main city sights. In particular I would like to emphasize a high professionalism and extreme helpfulness of personnel from the dining room, and excellent breakfast provided.

Arrived to this hotel on a whim before heading to USA. Arrived late on a Sunday, no wiggle room on room rate, ok, that's fine, off to see the room, miles from reception , room 160 by the way if anyone wants to know! No jeans were allowed in the drawing room, happened to be traveling light so their loss... More

We stayed here for our first wedding anniversary as part of the wedding package we got a complimentary night at the hotel. I never got round to writing a review last year but if your looking for the perfect wedding venue then look no further. The staff at the Randolph - particularly Sinead really helped towards making our wedding day... More

My husband and I stay here about 4 or 5 times a year and while it's by no means perfect (expensive and there's ALWAYS a mix up over our booking) we will keep coming back. As regular guests the hotel now seems to know who we are and we are often upgraded, or if no upgrade is available (the hotel... More
