We stayed in room 229 for one night. The room was quiet (at the back with views of trees and fields) spacious and well appointed except it needed more lighting as there was only one small window. A light over the desk/dressing table would have been particularly welcome. It was plainly decorated, but pleasant and everything worked except the wifi. As we were only staying one night at a weekend we did not bother asking for help with this, so maybe we could have got the wifi to work. The hotel was well located for us at a ten minute walk to the centre of Oxford, which is possible to do pleasantly along a riverside path rather than along the main road. We have tried two hotels in the centre of town but have found them a bit pretentious and overpriced. This one works for us and we will probably return. It is a big hotel (long walk to our room!) that caters for big parties (a coach tour when we were there) so you could hardly call it intimate or stylish, but the staff are friendly and professional. We tried the breakfast buffet, which I would call adequate. The scrambled eggs looked grey and grainy so I didn't bother and there was no freshly squeezed juice, only some from cartons. There was some nice sliced tropical fruit and apples but no oranges which would have been my choice.
Spent a week in Oxford for business. The Old Parsonage was a terrific find. The hotel was recently renovated, with stylish and comfortable rooms. The restaurant is cozy and the food is excellent. To top it off, the hotel has a remarkable collection of paintings.
A fairly-ranked four-star in a beautiful location. The main floor includes the old barn, with high ceilings and a fireplace, while our room was in the old part of the building - fantastic thick stone walls and patterned windows. The staff are friendly and there's plenty of them. Very relaxing stay and the pool's larger than average, too.
Very nice hotel but everything was overpriced. Not only is the room over £330 a night but they then charge extra for a cooked breakfast and parking.
However, the room was lovely and the service provided by staff was great.
The location is superb and we had a splendid time.
The dreaming spires of Oxford have inspired poets, musicians and novelists. Home to Inspector Morse and the world famous university, it also has a rich industrial heritage. The Ashmolean Museum is one of the finest in the country, Cowley Road is lined with cool pubs, and punting on the Isis is great fun, but most visitors are content just to wander the cobbled streets and soak up the grandeur.
