The Old Parsonage

Situated between St Anne's and Somerville Colleges, The Old Parsonage is a beautiful 17th century stone property shrouded in wisteria. While being walking distance from the centre of Oxford and many of its main sites, this privately owned boutique hotel is calm and quiet. The Old Parsonage has 30 rooms which are beautifully decorated in a true best-of-British boutique style. Luxurious throws cover every bed, rich drapes frame floor-to-ceiling windows and walls are adorned with one-of-a-kind paintings and portraits making this hotel feel like home away from home. More than just a place to lay your head, The Old Parsonage is a boutique hotel that really cares about its guests they will pack you a picnic for lunch by the river or, alternatively, borrow some of the hotel's bicycles to explore the city. If it's pampering you are after, relax and enjoy an in-house beauty treatment. Meals are served in the dining room which has striking red walls but for more a formal option, the hotel's sister restaurant, Gee's, set in an atmospheric Victorian conservatory is just five minute's walk away.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
