Reviewed 25 November 2011

The old parsonage does not pretend but you are welcome with warmth and all through your stay , you feel at home. Pets are allowed which is a great relief for ma y of us. Once a week there is a jazz eve and you can dine either by the chimney or in the more formal dining room.
If you have a chance to stay in Oxford , try to sleep there. Near the city, walking distance, buses nearby, but also peace and quiet. Maybe because of its history!

A lovely hotel in a fabulous location with excellent service. We've made several visits to celebrate special birthdays and other occasions and always had a wonderful time. We always try to eat in the restaurant where the food is delicious and the staff make you feel incredibly well looked after. Highly recommended!

This is a very lovely, old, luxurious and exquistely maintained small hotel not five mintues walk from the centre of Oxford, interesting little shops, pubs, the river, museums, botanic garden and all the colleges. My room was very quiet, comfortable and the dining accommodations are cozy with an excellent menu and wine list. I do suggest Evensong service at the lovely Gothic church next to the hotel even if you are not a "believer". It is a truely English experience ... choirboys 'n all. I have no reservations in recommending this hotel. If driving you will find the parking rather limited and the only other problem you will be confronted with is the maze of one way streets in downtown Oxford that can confound even the most astute.

My wife wanted to have a 'cream tea' on her birthday so went to the Old Parsonage having seen it recommended on Trip Advisor. Arrived just before 4.00pm to a pleasant welcome from the staff and a cosy, well appointed [if a little warm?] eating area. We had the 'High Tea' in very pleasant surroundings and felt relaxed and completely unpressured. Very 'full' high tea with good quality food in an unobtrusive way.
Would certainly return t celebrate anpther birthday as it is well placed for spending time in the city.

We arrived early Sunday afternoon and managed to park in the car park.Reception staff checked us in quickly and we were given a room looking out to car park. More than adequate room, lovely double bed with full bathroom.
We wandered around the beautiful city of oxford for a few hours before returning to change for our Jazz evening at Gee's.
The bar area in the hotel was so warm and cosy with the open fire, full of charm.We had a drink there before going up to Gee's for our Jazz evening, which included 3 course meal. Fantastic restaurant with 5* entertainment, we had a wonderful evening, and would definitely go back.
