      Dissapointed

      To be absolutely honest we were very disappointed. We decided to treat ourselves to a five-star hotel for our 30th wedding anniversary. The initial room was so noisy we asked to be moved. The room we were moved to was tiny hardly room to swing a cat. The television was set at an angle to the bed so goodness only knows how you were supposed to comfortably watch television without getting a neck ache. Overall I would not bother staying in a five-star hotel again as £200 a night was a waste of money

      Randolph Service.

      Superb service!!!! So very friendly EVERY member of staff was sincere, genuine and friendly. The best in a long time. Excellent text service - both ahead of visit and during the stay, even after check out you could still text with them any questions or queries and it was answered super fast. Brilliant service. Excellent restaurant, food and again service. Highly recommend!

      When in Oxford stay at The Randolph

      Felt very welcomed from the minute we approached the entrance doors. All staff were very engaging and helpful. Rooms were spacious, well laid out and very comfortable - the bed/bedding felt like sleeping on a marshmallow. The only issue we had was using hairdryer/straighteners - the mirror was at one end of the room and the nearest plug socket was at the other end of the room (not sure if this was just specific to our room 356 or not). The Morse Bar has a lovely homely atmosphere. Good selection of cocktails but lacked in presentation having no garnish/decoration. The Alice restaurant/bar was bright and airy. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice (hot or cold). Afternoon Tea was simple and delicious though service was a little on the slow side. Overall we would definitely recommend The Randolph and hope to return soon.

    • 8.0.Very good

      We really enjoyed our stay witht he Randolph. Excellent location and absolutely wonderful caring service by staff who took the time to know their customers. The accessible room was perfect for my parents who were most comfortable with the walk-in shower facilities. Sorry that the restaurant was closed while we were there, but the concierge did find us a suitable place to eat on a very busy weekend and the bar was fun too with excellent service. There could be more operational electrical sockets in the rooms, that would help improve the rooms. Overall an excellent stay.

      Nicely refurbished - but poor guest experience

      The Randolph has been completely refurbished and appears in a very welcoming style, with a nice balance between modern and new and very traditional English conservatism. We especially appreciated the bar at the reception which we quickly named The Morse Bar”! So why a poor rating? Unfortunately the staff is not well enough trained or sufficiently experienced to run the facility at the standard that the hotel and the guests deserve. A few examples: Forgetting to change towels, and then replace half and let the rest remain around on the floor. Or: Offer to cut a hamburger in two to be shared, then forget and fail to offer to correct when reminded. Or: Serving red wine in small, warm glasses… We could go on; it was all these non-smooth guest experiences that made this a bit misery. We hope the service quality will improve - it should be a very high priority for management. Paraphrased: The refurbished “hardware” of the hotel stands out positively, but the “software” fails.
