Fodor's Review

A 19th-century neo-Gothic landmark, this hotel is ideally situated near the Ashmolean Museum. Rooms are traditional in the older part and contemporary in the newer; all are large and elegantly designed in neutral tones with splashes of color. Many have views of Oxford's spires. A tiled, vaulted spa with four treatment rooms is the latest pampering amenity.

Old values in the 21sr centuary

My second visit was better than the first. A great welcome in a building steeped in history. Its like going back in time with all the comfort and refinement of today. A must is the Randolf Trifle exceptional.
