Delightful hotel with lovely rooms, excellent food and well trained staff. Visitors should note that some of the bedrooms are on the ground floor. The old building, sympathetically renovated, is still quite a maze but staff are happy to help with luggage etc.

We decided to visit for a long weekend - believe it or not we live less than 2 hours away and had never visited before....what a fabulous boutique hotel. Really chic in style, peaceful outdoor space, buzzing front entrance and restaurant - a really popular place. Our room was tastefully decorated, all the attention to detail you needed. The library...

We stayed a night at Superior Deluxe Room in December 2015, and I liked it a lot. There was no elevator. So, it was a bit of work to carry suitcases up to the room. (They offered to carry for us, but we just did it on our own.) The guest room was not so big but nicely decorated. Bathroom... More

We liked everything about the Old Parsonage Hotel! The reception staff was friendly, personable and extremely helpful. In fact, even prior to our arrival the staff members went out of their way to answer my questions and address my concerns. The parsonage itself is lovely and has been remodeled to reflect its past but updated in an elegantly modern way.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Old Parsonage Hotel in between Christmas and the New Year. We booked direct with the hotel and chose the Stay and Dine Package. The hotel is very convenient for sightseeing as it's an easy walk into the centre of Oxford. We joined the complimentary walking tour, which was a great way to find... More

This is a high-end property. Beautiful suite, lovely furniture, milk in the fridge for your fancy in-room coffee maker, amazing room-service breakfast, lovely courtyard access. We really enjoyed our stay (even though I find Oxford to be a pretty blah town, since you can't access any of the colleges without $ and a guide). I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This fantastic boutique hotel retains it's historic feel while blending ultra-modern facilities. It's gorgeous, comfortable and delightful, easy walking distance from all the major sites in the city. Highly recommended.

I stayed here with my eldest daughter for one night on the hottest days of the year so far. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring Oxford and ideal for popping back for a rest or a shower. The room was smallish but beautifully decorated and furnished and the bathroom was well equipped with excellent plumbing. The staff were friendly... More

Thank you for such high praise. It was a scorcher, wasn't it? Thank goodness for air conditioning. The terrace is a wonderful spot to enjoy breakfast. Or lunch. Or afternoon tea. Or dinner. I often enjoy the admiring and slightly envious glances of passers by, whether they are gazing longingly from the top deck of a passing bus or doing... More

Hi Rankinfoodie here. This is my idea of a good hotel. Small, old building but great modern design inside. We splashed out and booked a suite. Great attention to detail in the room. My only complaint would be the minimalist storage space and a bath too long for short people. Very unobtrusive but attentive staff. Good small bar, lunch, afternoon... More

Thank you Rankinfoodie. I enjoy reading your epigrammatic reviews. Surprised to hear of minimal storage space; there are 2 wardrobes in the suite. I concur with your other points (though who doesn't enjoy a long bath?). Look forward to seeing you again. More
