Historic hotel in a prime location, fraying around the edges

I was in Oxford doing some research at the Weston, and selected the Randolph for its history, it's location (walking distance to everything!), and, yes, I'll admit it, it's connections with Inspector Morse. The service is, for the most part, 5 star. I especially appreciated the doorman in his uniform and top hat, and being called "madam." It's what we stay in historic hotels in Oxford for! I frequently stay in historic hotels, so I was prepared for a smaller-than-average room and a few other quirks. Yes, the elevators are tiny and slow. The building is 150 years old.Yes, the floors creak and slant. Millions of feet have walked on them. Yes, there's a step up to the bathrooms, which were no doubt added well after the building was built. The water and waste pipes have to go somewhere! I was given a corner room, so I had two windows with stellar views - the Ashmolean from one window and (I believe) the walls of Balliol from the other - and a dreaming spire beyond that.The bed was quite comfortable, linens and towels of good quality. Two comfortable arm chairs for reading, an antique (or at least vintage) desk, the usual tea service (with shortbread!), a mini-fridge, two bottles of water and a split of wine. Good quality toiletries. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Housekeeping was excellent. The turn-down service ... I appreciated her tidying up and replacing used tea cups, etc., but it was a bit disconcerting to come back to find my television set to a radio station. Breakfast (included in the room rate) was very good. The juice, fruit, pastries, cereals, etc., on the continental buffet were always fresh and always replenished. The hot food was a bit hit or miss. The porridge was quite thick one morning (actually, the way I like it), and quite thin another (although not watery). My soft boiled eggs were variously soft, medium, and hard. The omelette was overcooked and rubbery. The sausage roll was, strangely, halved link sausages in a sliced bread roll. Coffee was good. Now, for the criticisms : there was a card in the room for noting any problems and leaving at the front desk. I noted that the security chain on my room was broken and that the hook on the back of the bathroom door was falling off. I filled it out and took it to the front desk. The young woman who took it did not even glance at it - and, as I expected, nothing was repaired while I was there (and I was there a week). I didn't bother to report the slow drain in the sink, as it seemed pointless. Overall, the male members of the staff provided superior service to the female, although there is room for improvement with both. Many of the young women gave the impression that guests were an annoyance. Some of the young men seemed to need more training. More than once, the extra service on the table was not cleared at breakfast, until the manager took it away herself. There were two terrycloth bathrobes provided -- one seemed to be a woman's small and the other a medium. Definitely not "one size fits all." Neither fit me, and certainly would not have fit my husband, had he been with me. There was no indication that larger sizes could be provided. There was no place to hang a hand towel, although there was plenty of wall space for a towel ring. It would also be nice if they instituted some green policies, rather than washing all towels daily.

I had a pleasant enough stay in this hotel but the combination of the niggles and the price point make it difficult to rate highly. Room was nice enough, despite a view of the air conditioners. Bed comfy. Shower pressure excellent although there was no shaving mirror in the bathroom. Breakfast cooked to order was ok - the supplement for smoked haddock seemed unnecessarily cheap. WiFi is reasonable and free. Niggles - no gym. This is a big hotel but has no gym facilities although it has a fairly extensive spa. I guess that’s the target demographic plus a spa makes money and a gym doesn’t. Windows in the room were secondarily double glazed which meant they didn’t open. Air conditioning wasn’t adjustable. At £150 a night this would be a good hotel. At double that it just isn’t. Collapse

We liked our room on the 4th floor, comfortable with a nice batthroom, but; - this hotel has the slowest smallest lifts in a 5* hotel in the world. It is easily quicker to walk up, even with bags. - we didn't eat in the hotel as there is no menu information in the room and we couldn't be bothered to walk down and up 4 floors to try and find out what is on offer. - the room keys are prone to stop working, 4 floors of stairs again. - the instructions on how to unlock the safe were locked in the safe. - the outside is currenly shrouded in scaffolding with a dark access passage. None of which would have really mattered if we were not paying such a premium price. Collapse

Visited with my wife at 3.40pm today. We were in Oxford for a day trip and had a great trip round the Ashmolean museum across the road...Disappointed that the Randolf building was clad at ground floor in builders screens for some work...not a good start! We were hoping to have a drink in Morse's bar (named after the brilliant fictional TV character, Inspector Morse) but the bar was very small and even at 3.30pm was full, so we asked for afternoon tea in lounge. The reaction from staff was initially helpful. That soon got forgotten though, because after asking for afternoon tea, we had to wait 25 mins then got the drink only. No sugar so I had to ask. Then no cakes arrived... 10 mins past then they arrived... but no plates...so we had to ask...and so it went on. Not just us, everyone was having the same trouble. There was some Corporate event on and they seemed short of staff but the service was very poor and others started to complain. There were not that many customers in the lounge that it should have been a problem. The actual quality was fine, but then after having to ask for the bill, the staff just vanished completely! We ran out of patience nd took our payment to reception. We really expected better than this. It is NOT acceptable to give such poor service, especially when they cheekily include a service charge of 15%! I have experienced problems similar to this at another Macdonald Hotel, so really they need to get their act together. It was expensive and not as good a treat experience as we had hoped! Collapse

Booked the Sunday lunch as a birthday treat and were virtually the only people in the dining room, which is pleasantly decorated with the college emblems. There is a choice of 2 and 3 course meals £27/£31 and there is an automatic 12.5% service charge, so there are much cheaper places to have lunch. But for a student it was a tick off the Oxford bucket list with parents paying! The food was good, but meat portions were a bit on the wafer thin variety. Service was very good and our glasses were topped up throughout and water was provided additionally. We had a nose around the afternoon tea which was much busier than the dining room. The toilets were to a very high standard, but we didn't stay in the hotel. Collapse
