    Very good

    Location, very friendly reception, parking spaces available, but expensive, old stylish building, but in need of renovation; price for location is right, breakfast good.

    Bed was relatively small for 2 persons, mattress laid through, at the entrance and in the corridors it smells slightly of sewage, drain problem at the sink, inexperienced serving staff at breakfast, but it all was forgivable.

  • 8.8
    Great

    The location of the hotel is very central and convenient. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. The beds were very comfortable and the equipment of the room was ok. Bar and restaurant are also recommended.

    The venue is a bit "outdated", but fits wonderfully into the surroundings and reflects the charm of Oxford.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Great location, staff is very hardworking

    The venue is a little bit old, the breakfast had no five-star level.

  • 10.0
    Perfect

    The situation's perfect, right in the centre. The staff is extremely kind and tries to take care of every wish patiently. The rooms are well equipped.

    The hotel's really huge! I got lost on my way to my room every time.

  • 8.2
    Great

    The rooms are very nice and clean. Also the hotel as a whole is very British and pretty!

    The bar is too small and offers only a small selection. The staff at the reception and restaurant was nice and courteous, but we had experienced a better service.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    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.

  • 6.6
    Nice

    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
    Great

    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.

  • 10.0
    Perfect

    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
    Perfect

    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.!

    Perfect

    I loved the classic atmostphere at Randolph.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    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
    Great

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