The position of this hotel was one of the main reasons for choosing it. We weren't disappointed. We had a 2 night stay for my husband's birthday. As we drove up the doorman took our suitcases and asked if we wanted the car valet parked - which we'd pre-booked. The check-in was easy. The hotel has lots of winding corridors... More

Location excellent. Room was clean and modern, rest of hotel a little faded and in need of a deep clean. Breakfast was expensive and staff a little surly. Would definitely book again because of location.

Fabulous place to be spoilt, and to help make you feel special for a night. Relaxing, with good advice about timings, so we could get to a concert in Oxford without rushing, or feeling hurried. Will be saving up to reduce-visit fir our next special anniversary treat!

We stayed here for an over night stay to visit the city. The concierge were happy to point us in the right direction to go exploring. The room we stayed in was upgraded and was so luxurious. The bed was so comfy. You were able to hear people walking around upstairs but that is not something that can be helped... More

This has to be the best located hotel in Oxford. Being near to everything was essential as one of our party has limited mobility. I found the staff to be professional, helpful and discrete. The rooms were clean and comfortable with very good room service. This is an older building so if you want modern, this may not be for... More

Although looking good from the outside, and in a good location, the inside of the Randolph Hotel leaves much to be desired. Long, dark, dank halls leading to small rooms, over stuffed with far too many decorative pillows, are commonplace. When booking a room, specifically avoid those that overlook the back service area of the hotel unless you are an... More

The Macdonalds hotels and the staff are wonderful and we usually enjoy our stays at Macdonald hotels but unfortunately this one missed the mark, despite being 5 star. The breakfast service was slow and on our 2nd morning we waited 40 minutes for our cooked breakfast - my husband's arriving lukewarm. Housekeeping staff arrived to service the room before we...

The hotel inside is a bit old and aged, the corridor is very dull and full of steps! (if you are in the room further down and with big luggage, it's really annoying) The room itself is not impressive at all, bed is comfortable but pillows can be better... Complimentary still and sparkling water inside room. Service of staff not... More
