We had a two night stay in the Old Bank, Oxford. The building is beautiful with a dedicated parking area. The staff were unfailingly courteous, polite and helpful. We used the hotel's bicycles to visit the Thames area and its library to enjoy wine and a quiet read. The hotel offers daily walking tours and the restaurant attached provides very...

Nicely maintained hotel who know their stuff in the centre of Oxford. Room was comfortable and clean. Restaurant was good for dinner, reasonable for breakfast, good staff service. Recommended for those who want a convenient location and good experience.

It's hard enough to get rooms here without everybody knowing about it. It's that good! OK we stayed for our daughters wedding held nearby and we were upgraded but we were treated like royalty. In the heart of the city but it has a car park! Leave it there and use feet, buses or bikes ( see my review of...

My wife and I visited Oxford for a few days this Christmas, and needed a place to stay which was central, and comfortable. The Old Bank did not disappoint, the staff were exceptionally friendly from the time we made our booking, to when we left. We drove into Oxford by car, which was not a problem, the hotel has off...

Visited Oxford to celebrate my partner's birthday. I mentioned this upon booking and on arrival we were upgraded. Normally you can only book two nights on the weekend, however as I booked in advance over the phone I could book only 1. The room was exquisite. A humongous bed, and bathroom with a bath and separate shower. We were greeted...

I can't fault Old Bank Hotel. The location is perfect for exploring Oxford on foot as it is right in the centre of town. The hotel is stunning - modern and tasteful but in a lovely old building. We had a room overlooking The High and and St Mary's Church. Our room was beautifully furnished and had everything you could...

It's very centrally located in the middle of town and they provide loaner bikes free of charge. The hotel and the room itself is beautiful, full of good energy, every detail is carefully curated and aesthetically pleasing. Room service was lovely as well as the gentleman who brought us our food multiple times and helped with our luggage. Staff was...

The hotel is a beautiful mix of modern and classy interior in an old building with beautiful Georgian windows. We requested to have a newly refurbished classic room and it was beautiful - probably the cleanest room we have ever stayed at. The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet (we also requested to have a room looking out the...

I had an overnight stay in Oxford due to a meeting at Oxford University. We struggled a bit to find the parking entrance to the hotel, but after a while of driving up and down the street we saw a tiny brown sign pointing us to the right back road. The car was somewhat oversized compared to the entrance, but...

Wonderful hotel in an ideally central location with onsite free parking. The service was friendly and impeccable and all of the staff were brilliant. Would we go there again - without hesitation. Would I recommend it - certainly. So what were the three niggles? Well, they were all to do with our room: Room 31. First, let me say that...

Thank you for your positive feedback. We acknowledge your constructive points. Room 31 is in the oldest part of the building and so is full of beautiful original features and quirks. Please note we will always accommodate a room move request whenever possible. Anti-slip mats and bath grab rails are available on request, please let us know directly next time...
