My husband booked a room at The Old Parsonage as a surprise for my birthday. We had walked past it on a previous visit to Oxford and i had commented on the beautiful exterior. It is a wonderful building and the interior is also lovely.
The room had a lovely little terrace overlooking the main courtyard. The bed was so comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. The bathroom is well stocked, the tea tray a little sparse but did have fresh milk. Dressing gowns were a nice extra addition. The room was adequate in size. Breakfast was lovely, we had a continental breakfast in our room for 12.95 each.
There is parking but it is very limited and we saw someone having trouble getting out. We got a taxi all the way there and i'm glad we did. The location of the hotel is great. We did hear the nearby the church bells on Sunday but it was actually quite nice to hear and they didn't start till about 9.45am.
The staff that we came into contact with were friendly, the restaurant staff were very busy when we walked through to get to our room.
