Stayed here for one night. Can't usually get into the Randolph at company rate. Was upgraded to large room at front but not much street noise at all. Room service was good and prompt. Breakfast was up to usual Macdonald standards but had to wait to be served both breakfast and coffee for quite a long time. Overall, a good... More

Just got back from a lovely surprise weekend away at this hotel. Food was amazing. Rooms very nice & staff couldn't be any more polite. Good location for walking into the centre of Oxford & would recommend the hotel parking service. Would have liked to tried afternoon tea but ran out of time.

Welcoming staff and clean modern room. Staff attentive and many offers of assistance with car & luggage. Breakfast service was very slow, it seems we got forgotten about. Would stay again as v convenient.

Staying at the Randolph is always like being wrapped in a warm cocoon of comfort and luxury. The food is excellent, the rooms welcoming, the beds outstandingly comfortable and the staff attentive and pleasant. Only caveat is Housekeeping who were knocking on the door at 9:10am on a Sunday morning to clean the room when we didn't have to check... More

Good hotel, good food and service, excellent location. Communal areas of the hotel getting a little tired (drab and dull) but rooms in good shape. Breakfast was good, didn't have evening meal - restaurant a little dated. The availability of parking is a bonus.

We enjoyed our stay, and the hotel does come with a sense of the grand. the sweeping staircase is marvelous. staff were helpful, and we felt welcome. what was a real issue though, was no wifi in the rooms (or any mobile signal). There was no kids channels on the TV, not even CBeebies or any of the free to... More

The staff and service were great the rooms were well equipped. Delicious breakfast in a delightful dining room. However the bar area was tired and draughty and there was a terribly drain smell throughout the Reception and bar area. Too expensive for the quality of the hotel.
