Beautiful hotel - loved being there. We were woken up by the trafffic noise in the morning. Decided to park elsewhere as I felt £40 a night was too much.

Wonderful staff - this is the only thing so great about this hotel. Other things are just not good enough for a 5-star hotel. Wifi was out for most of our stay. Check-in process was bad. A dirty pillow on our bed. Floors are creaking and noisy.

Very very disappointing ☹️
I’m sorry but I am always honest about the venues that I’ve been privileged enough to stay at and I will always praise when I’m impressed wherever I stay or eat. I booked the Randolph in the hope of joyous luxury and classic service for just one night. I experienced neither. When we arrived we saw no concierge to help us with our luggage, so I carried them myself up the staircase from the lift to our room. I totally get when you are staying at a particularly old building you will get creaks and crannies and an element of noise. However, the noise of people walking past our room made me almost think at one time that someone was in the room! I do not exaggerate. To pay £200+ for a small double bedded room that didn’t include parking or breakfast was too much - especially when the taps in the bathroom were back to front and I, getting up at 6am and trying to not wake my husband, tried desperately to make the cold water run hot! Okay, it’s funny now, but not at the time! Would I stay again, no. It was just too disappointing when I needed that little bit of being spoiled. The hotel is very tired and needs to wake up. Sorry guys.

Well positioned but expensive
Stayed overnight with 6 friends from USA. Good location. Liked the Morse bar. Overall comfort was good only negative was we all thought it overpriced at £392 for double room incl breakfast. Dinner charge was flat £60 per person extra so we had dinner elsewhere. However we all wanted to stay at the hotel which has appeared many times in the Morse and Lewis detective series. Glad we did but probably would not stay again due to overall cost.

Exceptional 10.0
Amazing. We were looked after from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. I cant wait to go back. If you are thinking of staying over in Oxford and you have a few quid to spare then this is the place to will not regret it.
