Positive Reviews

Excellent staff

The staff here is attentive and helpful Guests felt well looked-after during their stay in Oxford and were happy to stay in a hotel where they felt the staff was invested in making their stay enjoyable.

Great breakfasts

While there’s a surcharge for breakfast, guests thought the food here was worth paying for Breakfast in particular was singled out as being excellent.

Central location

The placement of the Macdonald Randolph makes it easy to access Oxford, of course But it also offers easy access to shopping, restaurants, and the bus station.

Negative Reviews

Perhaps needs some updates

The old-world feel of the Macdonald Randolph was sometimes too old for guests Many complained of broken air conditioners or décor that needed to be updated The facilities are perhaps ageing a bit beyond simply being traditional.

Uncomfortable sleep

Unfortunately many guests experienced an uncomfortable night’s sleep here The beds have been widely described as a bit hard While that’s okay for some guests, it proved very uncomfortable for others.

Living on reputation?

Some guests have suggested the Macdonald Randolph operates too much on reputation and not as much on actively keeping its guests pleased The price for what many considered a small space was not worth it in the eyes of many visitors.
