Old Parsonage Hotel

Oxford

Check price
35 rooms from $347 per night

“A luxury boutique hotel in a wonderfully old building. The rooms have simple contemporary design. Bathrooms are pleasingly indulgent. A small but well stocked library is awaiting academics. Punts are available for the stereotypical Oxford experience. The restaurant is excellent. Highly recommended. ”

Hotel Overview

“Our favourite Oxford hotel (though we can also recommend its sister, Old Bank), this ancient, characterful, wistaria-clad house has recently had a total facelift, including superb new beds. Its panache remains: a venerable door leads into the welcoming bar/brasserie (good food) with log fire; there's a pretty roof terrace; punt and bikes are available.”

Old Parsonage Hotel

"Through a pretty courtyard with large umbrellas for summer dining, and the original front door believed to date from 1660, you reach the reception hall, with original stone hearth and crackling fire."
