    staff were fantastic, hotel very nice but a little dated and pompous.

    the staff were so good that I almost forgot about the overpriced room, overpriced car parking, overpriced bar, overpriced phone calls and when every little side street coffee bar in oxford can afford to include free wireless internet in the price of their core product so too should a 5 star hotel.

    Excellent location

    Took forever to check in - not enough staff. Inadequate lobby size during check in / check out times - very crowded. Creaking floor boards means every step of every guest / staff member in the passage ways echoes through the rooms. Cooked breakfast obviously had a lengthy stay in the bain marie before dishing up.

  • 8.8

    A lovely large twin room with large bathroom. Very comfortable beds. Good location opposite the Ashmolean museum and near to colleges, shops and restaurants.

    There is nothing significant to complain about. Trivial - a more modern flat screen TV, but we didn't go to Oxford to watch TV! Were some signs in the bathroom of previous occupants.

    I liked best the fact that the atmosphere was very relaxing, especially in the dining-room and lounge areas (the ones I frequented), even when staff were obviously very busy. Nothing intrusive into that aura was permitted (E.G. I witnessed a mobile phone being banned during dinner, and realised that that type of service is what sets the Randolph apart from other hotels).

  • 10.0

    Expert, friendly , helpful staff and a splendid, Victorian Gothic building complemented by well chosen decor and modern comforts and an unbeatable location in the city. We will definitely choose the Randolph next time we plan to stay in Oxford. Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.!

    I loved the classic atmostphere at Randolph.

  • 9.2

    The staff were very friendly and attentive without being overly conspicuous. This made the stay very comfortable.Breakfast was excellent- a lovely room and a great range of items to choose from.We were upgraded from a classic to an executive room-this was really good. We stayed in a classic last time and this room was much more spacious-I would probably book an executive room next time.The location is excellent for sightseeing and shopping. We were there for our daughter's graduation and the hotel certainly added to a very special day.

    Lack of cheap car parking close by-we used the park and ride.

  • 8.8

    Very comfortable room with great views, excellent location, looking forward to being back.

    Very good

    The Edwardian interior decor was exceptionally beautiful; the public rooms were spacious, quiet and well-appointed; the fittings and carpeting were luxurious. The Spa was relaxing and well laid out, and all the staff were friendly and courteous. The availablility of a private parking slot was essential.

    The bedroom was too cramped, so that the entrance door could not open fully; the bathroom had several technical defects, e.g. ill-fitting basin stopper. The bedroom, overlooking a traffic intersection (St Giles and Beaumont Street), was unduly noisy at night because the double glazing had been removed. And the automatic inclusion in the bill of a 'voluntary' contribution by the Guest to a charity is downright wrong: the price is high enough to enable the Hotel to make its own arrangements!

  • 7.8

    The cetral location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the finer points of Oxford City Centre.

    Expensive parking options away from the hotel.

  • 8.8

    The staff were always charming ,polite and helpful. Ambience in the Morse Bar was a good begining to any evening.

    The hotel was much too hot.

  • 7.8
