                    The staff were very friendly and helpful and I loved getting Molten Brown toiletries and a bath robe!

                    A little overpriced for the room size and decor.

                    A fabulous atmospheric hotel with immaculate service right opposite the Ashmolean Museum. Perfect for culture vultures and those wanting to immerse themselves in the heart of the historic city of Oxford.

                    location is great. bathroom is beautiful. nice and warm which in this cold weather was why I didn't book something more quirky.

                    staff aren't particularly friendly or welcoming. room a bit small but adequate.slightly odd things like a bath floor towel next to the bed. concierge seemed nice but not particularly efficient as we had to ask if that was our taxi waiting, before they noticed it.

                    There were three excellent parts to my stay: the Concierge, the staff serving breakfast and the location. The concierge were exceedingly helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent and the staff very attentive and did not make me feel awkward as someone travelling on their own. I chose the hotel for the location as I had tickets for the New Theatre in the evening.

                    I did not really feel that the Traditional Afternoon Tea was worth the cost.

                    When I booked our room I mentioned that it was my partners birthday. When checking in and on a welcome card in our room he was wished happy birthday, which I think was a lovely personal touch. The staff both at reception and at the bar and restaurant were really friendly and helpful and the girls downstairs at the spa were lovely. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Randolph and would 100% book with them again for a lovely getaway treat.

                    No plug socket by the bed for my phone. Breakfast charges extra. The pool facilities as an extra cost!

                    Good service with polite staff.

                    i thought that the selection of TV channels available - did not include BBC 4 for example - was poor.

                    Excellent location, opposite the Ashmolean and close to the centre so everything was within walking distance. Reception when checking in/ out was welcoming and genuine. Room small but well appointed and the bed was comfortable. Morse Bar a relaxing place for drinks and people watching. If you're interested in Victorian architecture, than this is a good choice of hotel. Not if you're seeking boutique-style or funky experience.

                    Breakfast on the expensive side. Bathroom needs a little attention eg one of the basin taps missing its cap. A little disappointing given the hotel's reputation.

                    The grand building of the hotel is wonderful.

                    The food in the restaurant was very average; the reason we booked for dinner there for a special celebration were very dissappointed. And it was very much hyped about how good the dining was; I would not say the same. The restaurant and the food need great improvement. The dining area looks dull and dim even the cutlery in need of upgrade. The staff in the hotel is missing smiley face.

                    Very comfortable beds - and afternoon tea a delight. Great breakfast.

                    Lift a little antiquated and slow; noisy floorboards (especially overhead!) and rooms overheated (even when heating turned off - opening windows made it too noisy). Dinning room not available first night (no indication we needed to book early). Check-in a little chaotic.
