I have known this Hotel for about 25 years and have always liked it. I went for a birthday treat and booking in and having a drink at the old bar was lovely while the Porche was parked by a rather jumpy concierge!! It's all grand style at the Randolph and the stairs and lobby and rooms are all of a certain style that caters for tourists of a certain "dollar" value. It is a bit dated I feel and the dining room made me want to eat out in that it was stiff and stuffy and I was intent on having a romantic evening with my beloved and not be stared at if I offered her pudding on my fork!
It's comfortable and as a set, it is well staged.
I could not fault it and if you are staying in Oxford for the first time it is a must.
Only thing is that Oxford gets a bit noisy at night with all the students and younger crowd hanging out at the burger/kebab/chip vans that are on the road RIGHT OUTSIDE our bedroom windows. In the summer this was NOT good.They are there til the wee hours!
It is famous for Inspector Morse but he always had the music on full blast so would not have heard the yelling outside.
