A great place to relax and unwind while shopping in Oxford city centre. Had a lunch here and the service was superb. The food was equally great and the atmosphere was traditional but relaxing too. Might try and stay here as well as the rooms look well appointed.

For Christmas shopping why not stay here, maybe only once in your life, you have to try it. Yes expensive but that's because it's the famous "Morse bar". You will probably like us be able to find a discount code online and take the price down on your room. It's like 5 mins walk from the shopping high street so... More

We booked a one night break on the internet. The site crashed and I had to reconfirm by dialling the hotel directly. All was fine on arrival. The hotel has a charming old-fashioned ambiance, with good service. Our room was comfortable, though a bit noisy, with an external extractor fan somewhere in the vicinity. The bath water very hot and... More

Booked this 5 star accommodation for a romantic Christmas getaway, what a waste of money. Upon arrival we were greeted at the entrance by a crowd of drunk smokers attending a wedding and could not make our way in. The concierge was nowhere to be seen to park the car (at an additional £28.50) and the receptionist's customer service skills... More

We were fortunate to get a good room rate, and so we booked and enjoyed our time at the Randolph. The location is superb - right in the middle of town, and walking distance to so many sights. Parking was very expensive (even by the standards of a luxury hotel, I thought it was overpriced) and I was surprised that... More

Room was lovely and a great location to shopping and Christchurch . We had a great time and your staff was exceptional. We certainly would recommend our friends here in the US. Loved the lounge and the dining rooms.

We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast deal and took our two adult children. The whole experience was lovely. The service was top notch and staff very attentive without being too intrusive. I would thoroughly recommend the deal we went on. It was very special.

Booked an Executive King Room so expected at least a kingsize bed instead of 2 single beds shoved together. Room was stone cold so needed an electric heater which thankfully was available. Bathroom too small. Staff good and friendly but nothing special. Roomrates are much too high. Poor value for money.
