We had a wonderful stay at "The Randolph". We couldn't fault anything, the service was excellent and the food glorious. If I'm honest, one thing spoilt our stay, and that was the smell of the hotel. I realise it is very old etc and I'm not too sure what the smell was , but maybe too much air spray or... More

A lovely, short relaxing stay. Easy to find, yet walking distance to town and the Railway station. Valet parking, pre-booked. Staff very helpful and courteous. Room overlooked the Ashmolean, noisy if window was opened. Tea, coffee, mini-bar facilities. Lovely hotel and enjoyed reading its history. Morse bar is a must, as are the cocktails! Excellent dining. Can be a bit... More

Perfect for a weekend break. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Had pre booked parking and this was done with complete ease. Room was very comfortable and well appointed. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious and well deserving of 3 rosettes. I had mentioned on booking it was my husband's birthday and the chocolates, on a beautifully chocolate decorated plate, served... More

A really enjoyable and relaxing couple of nights in Oxford. Staff were super and could not have been welcoming and accomodating. We arrrived early and car parking was available a real bonus in Oxford.

You should expect good service in a 5 star hotel, but I think the Randolph really shows how to do service well. The staff are welcoming, not too formal and endlessly helpful. The lift to the top floor was out of order when we arrived and although my wife has arthritis we decided to give it a go. It turns... More

Stayed here at the start of January. My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay for one night. We got a good package which included a three course dinner and breakfast delivered to our room. The food in the restaurant was divine and would definitely recommend eating there. The staff at the randolph were friendly and very professional. Would recommend... More

When I was a student (too many years ago) I always used to look longingly at those beyond the windows of the Randolph. Now I stayed for the first time. We booked two rooms and asked for them to be interconnected (we were travelling with 8 and 10 year olds). In fact I even rang up that morning to check.... More

The hotel is located very conveniently in the centre of Oxford, close to all colleges and museums. With valet parking, the car can be stored away. In common with most city centre hotels, space is at a premium and so rooms are not over spacious. We had an executive room and this was very comfortable. Like many older hotels, floorboards... More

The Randolph Hotel is very well positioned in Oxford. The hotel room that we were allocated was a standard double overlooking the Ashmolean and was a smallish room and it was incredibly hot and we could not sleep. The radiator thermostat did not work and was on full and could not be turned down or off. It would have been... More
