A most attractive hotel right in the centre of Oxford, and near to all attractions. Excellent service from the concierge to the front desk, room staff and restaurant. It was very convenient to be able to leave the car to be parked for us, and even though the charge is not cheap (£28) it is comparable with 24 hours in...

Adore this hotel. From the location (right in the centre of Oxford Uni) to the impeccable detailing, to the Molton Brown bathroom products -- this was one of my favourite hotel experiences. Charming staff, a wonderful breakfast in a beautiful dining hall, and a grand entrance. Love it.

I had not been back to the Randolph for years but returned to have lunch with an old friend. What a fantastic afternoon. From the word go when Shaun in the sales office took my reservation, right up to the delectable rip roaring honeycomb parfait ending, if was a decadent experience all round. The food was fresh, tasty and served...

Although nicely appointed our room was tiny. I do wonder if this was because we booked through Trivago who had the best deal and not direct with the Hotel. So if you would like a tiny room with the added value of stifling heat, book The Randolph through a third party. Drinks at the bar were searingly expensive as well....

I arrived early and asked at the Concierge desk if I could leave my bag. They took it politely and asked if they could help with anything else. When I returned early evening there was a technical glitch and I had to wait until it was sorted so my room could be found. I was offered a seat and within...

Spent three nights in one of their smallest rooms (very high ceiling made it feel bigger). Very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious Asked for a view of the Ashmolean when booking and got it - very pleased! Service was very good. Anything we needed we received - eg fresh milk more pods for the coffee machine etc. Breakfast was plentiful and...

Brilliant hotel, warm friendly welcome right in the centre of Oxford facing the Ashmolean museum. Paid for parking and all I had to do was hand the keys to the concierge and the car disappeared until the end of our stay. Car can be left until 1pm on departure day and luggage can be left too after checking out so...

Was staying here the night before a wedding as part of the wedding party, room was booked at a very good price due to the Winter sale, and hotel management were most kind to leave a small bottle of Champagne to enjoy in my room the night before the wedding, but if I had been here ordinarily and not had...

excellent staff, excellent position for visitor.the only hotel of this standard. valet parking quite expensive but worth it. this is not a cheap hotel with room overlooking Ashmolean museum, but it has the unique position-5 minutes walk to everywhere-old fashioned traditional decor is just right
