For our company Christmas party we had booked very early as we were too late last year, our expectations were high. The location is superb and you can't fault the building and the entrance is impressive with a very polite doorman to welcome you. The room we were in for our party was nicely decorated. However, the drinks (you receive...

I organised our BMW xmas party and chose the Randolph as our venue. I was expecting it to be good, but not that good. Everyone had a great time, the atmosphere was electric and were very well taken care of by the staff. Will certainly be re organising again for next year. I couldn't imagine anywhere better.

Great location, good door staff. We were pleased with our room on floor 3 (330). The major problem was the constant loud whirring of the air condition/extraction fans below our room. Unacceptable, you should at the very least expect a decent nights sleep at a 5 star hotel. The fans need sound proofing work and the windows of effected rooms...

This hotel was very nice, with an ideal location. The staff were very attentive and professional, the table was waited on, both efficiently and discretely. The meal that was served was ok, it wasn't anything particularly special and in my opinion it lacked presentation. I sat on a very uncomfortable sofa with a deep seat and not able to lean...

The Hotel’s location in the centre of Oxford (directly opposite Ashmolean Museum) is ideal for all the museums and restaurants. The location is the main selling point which I guess is how they justify the high-end room rate. I would say the Hotel is at best a midrange 4 star. The positives are the location and the Spa, which is...

I stayed here for 5 nights on business. It is a good central location and within walking distance of many restaurants. The room was an adequate size and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was freshly cooked and was very nice. We ate at nearby restaurants each evening as we wanted a more casual experience than the Randolph was able to offer.

It is a very OLD hotel in the city center well past its prime. I don't care that it was used to film Inspector Morse or what the history is if the place is not clean. It is not clean. It is grimy. Example: Hotel-provided bathrobe had mud in the hem and a dirty footprint. I showed it to the...

Beautiful building, very very elegant. The restaurant is classic English Style the food even though the menu is all in French. Great for lunch. There is also a great bar. Great fun worth a visit. Even if you can't stay here

My wife and I decided to meet with friends at the recently refurbished restaurant at this beautiful hotel but our experience was disappointing! The food was excellent but the service left a lot to be desired. The manager/head waiter brought us menus but did not tell us what the Soup of the Day was and neither did he bring a...

We stayed for a couple of nights and found the staff very friendly and helpful. We had been upgraded to a junior suite which had very good amenities, but we did find it rather hot for sleeping despite adjusting the heating down as much as possible. Excellent choices at breakfast, but service was a bit slow because there were so...
