Restaurants are just dreadful. First time in my life I had weak and watery tea in England. Dinner was adequate. Ceasar salad had ugly brown lettuce and nothing else to recommend it. This is inexcusable considering I was one of about 6 other diners.

Beautiful hotel in Oxford

We were in Oxford to visit our daughter who was attending the University for a summer course. The hotel could not have been better. Felt like a grand old castle, only the rooms and bathrooms were luxurious, up to date and comfortable. Perfect location. Would absolutely stay here again!

Very nice staff, especially the porters.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: too expensive breakfast
The location could not be better. We wish that this hotel, as well as others in the UK, would offer a "continental" breakfast for less than about $25/person, which was the fixed price.

Enjoyed a splendid room overlooking the Ashmolean.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, pants press
Cons: morse bar: indifferent service
The Randolph was a splendid base for enjoying the Sunday Times -Oxford Literary Festival. The room was capacious and well-insulated from whatever noise arose from Beaumont St. The dining room was quiet and gracious; the cuisine was superb. One quibble: The high prices in the Chapters, er, Morse Bar led one to expect rather more attentive service than was offered.

5 stars in Oxford

The Randolph is posh. The facility is lovely and centrally located to all of Oxford. Be aware that the ""executive double rooms"" are located in a connected but separate section of the hotel. The rooms in the * range are not only a long walk from the lobby but also down a full flight of stairs. If the bellhop offers to take your bags, accept the offer. The ""executive double room"" is very large and comfortable. The shower is amazingly wonderful. Some of these rooms have doors that can open to a courtyard shared only by the rooms fronting the space. Hotel assured me the courtyard was safe, not open to the public, and patrolled by a night watchman, but I didn't feel comfortable in leaving my ground level windows which faced this courtyard open at night. Tea in the tea room was good value and the breakfast was delicious. Sign up for their B&B program, if offered, since it is great value at a wonderful hotel. I'd stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Oxford.
