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.

This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
