Beauty, comfort,elegance, and a warm helpful welcoPosted Jul 18, 2017
I had some trepidation that this hotel might be one of those old piles whose reputation rested more in the past than in current reality. I am glad to report that it is alive and vibrant. It has a great atmosphere, including a soothing, delicious aroma. It is no surprise that smells strongly influence our experiencees, and the M-R smells wonderful. I reluctantly left the Macdonald Randolph feeling like I had discovered a new home.

Perfect LocationPosted Jul 12, 2017
I enjoyed my stay at the Randolph after they moved me to a room with a view. The first you was cramped and overlooked AC units construction... with the lower portion of the window frosted to hide it. Such a nice hotel shouldn't use a room they know is inadequate.

Iconic hotel in the centre of OxfordPosted May 2, 2017
Pros: Location, iconic status, great cocktails.
Cons: In need of a proper refurbishment
Location: Ashmolean and Pitt rivers museums. Oxford city centre.
The location of the Randolf is excellent. It's right in the centre of Oxford and directly opposite the Ashmolean Museum. This really is an iconic hotel. It is however starting to look faded with gaffer tape holding down the carpet by the door into the bar, ceilings and walls in need of a lick of paint, lifts straight out of 1972 and wallpaper and furniture scuffed and scratched in places. Having said all that, I'm glad we stayed there although next time, if we're looking for a top hotel in Oxford, I think we'll try somewhere else. The staff are very friendly and polite and work incredibly hard I couldn't help feeling that they are rather let down a little by their surroundings.

The MacDonald hotel in Oxford was quite disappointing. We had various issues whilst we stayed there and while overall the stay was pleasant and staff were very helpful, the hotel does not feel like a 5* and is perhaps not worth the money.
