Escape and get away from it all at The Randolph. Thanks to a highly regarded spa that offers all the serenity you will ever need. No matter how stressful life might be, this place will always make things better.
You can choose from an extensive list of treatments designed to rebalance, nourish and rejuvenate. And after your pampering is over, make sure you unwind further in the tranquility of the bio sauna.

Oxford is a wonderful city for long walks and energetic runs, thanks to some glorious parkland in the interior and some idyllic countryside beyond the suburbs. Wandering through the iconic streets can be delightfully inspiring.
The city is also one of the most cycle-friendly in the whole of the UK so feel free to take to two wheels should you wish. And if you like healthy sporting adventures, check the many superb golf courses in the area.
Dining in style is all part of the experience at The Randolph Hotel, so prepare yourself for some truly unforgettable meals. The main restaurant offers a stunning menu featuring some highly innovative temptations.
Have a drink or two in the iconic, and rightly famous, Morse Bar during your time here. And if you’re keen to savour a well-known Oxford institution, be sure to leave room for the indulgent and delicious afternoon tea.
The spa at the Randolph Hotel is lovely, when we arrived we were shown the way to the spa, reception in the spa very friendly and informative. Shown to the changing rooms and given a key for a locker; inside the locker a clean folded dressing gown, big towel and a pair of slippers. In the spa rooms there is a small Jacuzzi big enough for 2 adults, 4 steam rooms rocks, bio, aroma, an ice room and a shower with 3 different showering water sprays, a cold water drink. Treatment rooms were plush and comfy, Michael my massuere was excellent, he did a very firm massage which made me feel so relaxed and de-stressed, the facial was excellent too.Disappointing part of the spa there is nowhere to really relax and chill there were seats in the reception area but we felt a little odd sat in reception in our gowns and costumes, maybe another room needs to be allocated as a chilling room with chaise lounges in so you can chill and relax without worrying if your flashing too much thigh or boob.

I booked this day for a surprise birthday treat for my wife and was she surprised. We both had an amazing relaxing time. The staff were very helpful and informative.

Tranquil & Uplifting
My Wife & I celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a stay at the hotel which included a complimentary spa massage session as well as full use of the spa facilities. We opted for the 25 min neck & back massage. The spa had no pool (which was a shame) but the décor, ambiance and staff service was exemplary. The soothing music and sound of running waters put you in a tranquil mode , ready for the treatments. The rooms were comfortably furnished and the treatment specialists were informative, friendly and thoroughly professional. A very relaxing experience. The Jacuzzi , steam room, aromatherapy room, Ice room & saunas were clean and well equipped too. The area was small, so if 20 people showed up, it would have been very crowded - but there were only 3 or 4 people there when we arrived. Overall a recommended venue for hotel and spa experience.

Professional and Relaxing
My husband and I visited the Macdonald Randolph spa today for a birthday treat. The receptionist was very welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.
We used the facilities and although not a huge spa with swimming pool facilities, the area was still very relaxing and felt like we had it to ourselves. Before our treatments we went for Champagne and cream tea which was served in the drawing room, a very grand room which was extremely relaxing and decorated beautifully.
We were called in for our treatments which we both fully enjoyed, the therapists were professional and knowledgeable and ensured our expectations were met to high standards.
The whole experience was excellent, the spa was clean and offered all the extras from robes, slippers and Elemis toiletries to use at no extra cost.
We left feeling relaxed and sad the experience was over. Thanks again!

Disappointing and poor value for money
On the whole disappointing for a room costing over £340 per night. The room was smaller than advertised up five flights of stairs (or accessed via a tiny lift). No minibar or dressing gowns. Hot......Read more
