Most recent review:

What I liked:

Excellent location, great service, rooms and bathrooms were excellent. Food/bar service was also spot on. Will definitely come back for a visit next time in town.

What the hotel could do better:

Rooms were excellent, as was the bathroom and public space. More/easier parking would be helpful.

Hotel Description

The Old Parsonage is unique in billing itself as a 17th-century boutique hotel, and we’ve got to admit they do have a point. This is a town, after all, whose university is so old as to resist any attempt at pinning down a precise date for its founding — in comparison it was practically just yesterday that Oscar Wilde signed the guest book.

Though its exterior is charmingly weathered, and more than a little bit rural in aspect, the Old Parsonage’s interiors are quirkily urbane. A ramshackle collection of charming antiques share time with flat-screen televisions, and a modern addition does a creditable job matching the atmosphere of the original house. And though it’s very far from being ostentatious about it, the Old Parsonage, beneath all that patina, is more than a little bit luxurious.

It’s a sister to the Old Bank hotel, as well as a couple of local restaurants, which expands the offerings a bit. But the best the Old Parsonage has to offer is small-scale, local, and idiosyncratic — the restaurant’s menu is exquisitely crafted and impeccably sourced, the afternoon tea is an institution, and the hotel offers a number of ways to see historic Oxford: guided walking tours, bicycle rentals, even a punt for a bit of Isis-bound exploration.
