    Planned to see Oxford major attractions and it was incredible base for visiting all of them. We appreciated full English breakfast with a good choice of different meals. The room was very clean and had all the facilities.

    We liked almost everything: excellent location, helpful staff. We had a room with courtyard view and small balcony. It was adjacent to Dunn School Japanese Garden. Plenty of restaurants and bars in area.

    Wonderful hotel with a lot of atmosphere and centrally located. We already stayed several times in this hotel for several days (also with our two teenagers) and each time it was a very nice stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food in the restaurant is also recommended. The rooms are clean and tastefully furnished. The narrow stairs to the rooms may not be so convenient for older people, but there are also rooms on the ground floor that lead out to a parking lot.

    A nice little hotel, a lot of charm

    A lot of narrow stairs. It's pretty narrow, isn't it? The restaurant is unfortunately somewhat below the "dignity" of a 5-star hotel

    I have been to Old Parsonage several times and will be back any time! This is a lovely small hotel with modern rooms in a historic house in the city center with a beautiful terrace for relaxing in the fresh air. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    Behind the old walls hides a dreamfully tastefully furnished hotel. Beautiful guest rooms, neat bathroom, excellent breakfast, best service and high tea in the garden, a dream. If you've been a guest 30 years ago, come back again!

    Atmoshere is exactly right. It is relaxed yet staff are attentive and pleasant. I loved the decor in the dining room and bar area especially the oil paintings. It was nice that the fire is kept alight all year round. Staff on main desk are helpful. Fantastic location.

    It is expensive. Bedroom had no vew!

    Restaurant very good, with one or two disappointments. There were two dud puddings during our two day stay. One at lunch - ver solid flapjack, and the other at dinner. The cider apple sorbet tasted of nothing except maybe disinfectant.

    This is obviously nothing you can do about, but the traffic noise does spoil the otherwise delightful atmosphere of eating outside in the lovely weather.

    This hotel has character. Ivy covers the arched entrance to the front terrace. The rooms are well kept up, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are a reasonable size (for England!). The breakfast was excellent.

    Afternoon tea is very popular and gets overcrowded, with staff a bit overwhelmed and some visitors turned away for lack of room.

    A lovely building, well furnished, comfortable, excellent service, friendly welcome, good breakfast choice, nice dinner excellent choices, I was happy there and slept well.

    Messy breakfast connections to the pay desk. Had to wait for them to find out if I had even had breakfast. it was all a bit expensive at 218 quid for a sleep. Plus another 14 each for a bacon and egg! It was a treat but could have been 50 quid cheaper. Cleaners were rubbing the brass on the door next to us as we ate.Smell of Brasso added to the hot Oxford Sauce . The bathroom floor was positively dangerous when you put a floor mat on it. nearly went over. Bad if you are 76 years old with a hip!. Still we had a very nice stay. Would do it again for a treat but not very often because it is pricey

    Breakfast was very good.

    Room 24 was very small and rather noisy at times. It could be above ?, and started noise quite early and ended quite late.

    Loved the dining area, staff were excellent

    Room was tiny, for 200 pounds a night without breakfast I thought this was asking a lot, also, took a while to make up the room each morning

    Staying in a 17 century building was really special but the rooms fluffy doonas and quality fittings made it even more special. We left a bag in a taxi and staff went out of their way to help recover it. It was a beautiful place to stay and very central.
