Lovely property, excellent staff. Restaurant is excellent as well.

This property was quaint and lovely. It has a convenient location and everything was clean. What sets it apart is the level of service. Every staff member we encountered was extremely helpful and polite. They went out of their way to assist us. We had debated taking a side trip to Oxford from a London stay, but we are so glad we did. We would love to return to the hotel. If you have the chance, book this hotel. You won’t be disappointed!

Beautiful building, very helpful staff, excellent afternoon tea, nice Christmas decorations and roaring log fire.

Great location. Restaurant was great and staff was super helpful!

Very unique property and the room certainly had some luxury features (espresso machine rather than instant coffee, fine linens) but not worth the cost. Guests should know that there is no lift and if you get a "family" room, they will give you an air mattress rather than a rollaway bed. The breakfast was quite good for the price and there is a pleasant patio for drinks.

I am a seasoned traveler and have stayed at many hotels. This have become one of my favorites. The rooms were quiet, comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the library and the front patio where I had high tea in between my meetings and conference. It was a really special experience.

As always, the hotel was excellent. I wanted to change my room as the one I was given was on the ground floor next to the car park. Reception were able to offer me a room on the next floor and handled my request impeccably. As a single traveller, the drawer space was fine but I can imagine that if a couple had a great deal of luggage that might be a squeeze. I always try to stay here on my visits to Oxford and recommend the Old Parsonage highly.

We were totally happy with The Old Parsonage. The staff was so helpful to supply us with two wheelchairs. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent! Very clean place with amazing Nespresso machine in our room! Cold milk provided to froth. Just a delightful place.
