So, before I start, I just wanted to say that I debated writing two reviews, one for the hotel and one for the Restaurant, 'Quod'. I decided not to, however. Partly out of laziness and partly because in my opinion a restaurant attached to a hotel is part of the hotel, especially if this is where the guests eat for... More

Thanks so much for your review. I'm really sorry to hear you feel like this about your experience in Quod. As you can imagine, we hope that guests are thrilled with the food. I cannot account for why your steak was 'tasteless'. That is very unusual as they are aged and seasoned as a matter of course. I do hope... More

I stayed here for the Oxford Farming Conference last week. During my stay the staff were fantastic but on leaving I left something which was very special to me. The staff excelled and found the item and posted it to me the very next done. Well done and thank you Lisa and Holly.

This is a fabulous choice if visiting Oxford. Right in the heart of the University area of the City and an easy walk to get everywhere. Very comfortable rooms, stylish decor with lots of eye-catching art in both the rooms and common areas. Friendly and helpful service. They offered free walking tours when we visited. Very nice on site restaurant... More

Two nights at the Old Bank. Room was clean, well-thought out and comfortable. Bathroom was very well-stocked. Staff were obliging and pleasant. Nice touches included a free walking tour of Oxford (extremely good) and a list of 'what's on' in the city, compiled by the hotel for guests.

Highly recommend it. Excellent customer service, fantastic location with free parking available to guests. Really good suite in terms of size and amenities. The only thing that disappointed was the restaurant dinner menu, which was rather limited. The breakfast, however, was superb.

Charming hotel, very comfortable and well placed in the centre of Oxford. All the staff were extremely friendly and really wanted to help. Wonderful to have free car parking. We are looking forward to staying again.

lovely hotel in the centre of University town. excellent staff....rooms a wee bit small but comfortable. terrific bonus of having a free car park as Oxford is not an easy city to park. Certainly worth a visit.

Thanks for your review. Yes we're very lucky to have a large car park. Its always worth planning your journey in to Oxford though, as satnavs don't always bring you to the right place. Ben Truesdale More
