It's really lovely if your children have a place at university in Oxford, but it's not an easy city to find central good accommodation and none of it is cheap. The Old Parsonage manages to feel peaceful and almost rural whilst resting centrally on St Giles. The rooms are mostly not large and on one occasion we suffered with the noise of the kitchen fans, but we have stayed there so many times that one disappointment almost seems churlish to mention. The staff keep a record of your personal likes and dislikes so that return visits go just that little bit more smoothly. The food is good though the restaurant suffers a little from lack of space but somehow, the atmosphere makes up for it and the staff have always been attentive and helpful. We would certainly rate this as our Oxford hotel of choice - and we have stayed at at least a half a dozen others...
