My daughter and I stayed at the Old Bank Hotel last week for one night. My daughter was attending an Open Day at Oxford. From the minute I made the booking, the staff were fantastic. They came back to me straight away and confirmed that they would ensure I had a room with a view. They also gave me excellent directions on how to get to the Hotel car park. When we arrived, we were told by the very friendly staff at Reception that we had been upgraded to a suite. Our suite (Room 32 on the second floor) was absolutely amazing - beautifully decorated with windows looking out over the spires of Oxford. And everything was so comfortable. The bathroom was great and the bath has such good pressure that you are warned that it will be full in 2 minutes!
We had dinner in the hotel's main restaurant, Quod, which was very busy and clearly very popular. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We also had a very good breakfast there the following morning.
Check out was supposed to be at 11am but I asked for a later check out because I had to get my daughter to the open day. They obliged without a murmur.
All in all, I would say this is one of the best, most friendly and most beautifully appointed hotels I have ever stayed in. I hope to go back some day soon. Oh and I have forgotten to say that the location is perfect!
