This was our first time at The Old Bank having sampled other hotels in the city. We were not disappointed. The location is superb, central and perfect for both wandering 'old Oxford' as well as the shops and places to eat out.
The hotel itself is smart, modern and very clean. The staff from reception to housekeeping and waiting were polite, friendly and efficent. We were always made to feel very welcome and valued.
Our room was spacious and well appointed.
The owner has filled the hotel (including the rooms) with selections from his private art collection and whilst maybe not to everyones taste, we found this and interesting and pleasing addition. It served to enhance our experience.
Unusually for us we chose to 'eat in' one evening and we had a meal at The Quod. The food was excellent as was the service; I felt it represented value for money.
The one small issue I has with the hotel regarding the location of our room was dealt with in a completely professional and satisfactory manner by the manager who could not have done more to ensure our stay was a happy one.
I make no apologies for this glowing report; being a seasoned hotel guset in various cities I feel this is a case of 'credit where credit is due'. 10/10
