The wonderful location is the main reason I'd stay here again, but also factoring in is the charm of this lovely place. The staff is welcoming, and the guest lounge is a quiet spot for relaxing. The breakfast menu is excellent, and when we wanted a light meal after a busy day, the hostess made suggestions that were just perfect.... More

Booked a private dinning room for a party of business colleagues. Nice enough, but food distinctly average overall, no particular complaints but won't be rushing back....nice surroundings and hotel itself very nice, just very underwhelming dinning experience

Before arriving I had no idea about "rising bollards" and the cutting off of traffic within the center of Oxford. It is imperative, really, that you stay centrally is you are going to maximize your time in all of the wonderful historic sites. Expensive. Yes. Tiny rooms. Yes. Centrally located? Cannot be beat. Plus, the staff is lovely; the hotel... More

Thanks so much for your review I'm glad you enjoyed and managed to find your way to the car park. It is always better to pre-plan that bit of your journey, I must admit, as Oxford can be a bit of a maze. I hope to see you soon. Ben Truesdale More

We only had time for a short visit to Oxford, and this was the perfect place to stay! You could not have a more central location, the restaurant was nice, the room vas very nice and we had excellent service. If I come back to Oxford I will certainly try to stay here again.

Really comfortable and delicious experience at this hotel. We went on a stay and dine package for £285 plus drinks paid for on top on a semi business combined with mid week break trip on August 5th. We were looked after well. Quods food was excellent ,particularly the seafood risotto and woodsmoke grilled burgers. We stayed in a downstairs disabled... More

Thanks very much I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We do serve streaky bacon at breakfast but do have back bacon if required. So sorry we didn't manage to alert you to that. I hope to see you again soon. Ben Truesdale More

My daughter and I truly enjoyed our four day stay at the Old Bank Hotel at the beginning of July. Here are a few reasons why: First, it was located in the middle of the High Street in Oxford so it was super easy to get to. We had arrived from London, by bus (the Oxford Tube, highly recommend this... More

Great location, right in the middle of everything. The staff was very kind and accommodating. I was surprised by the roominess of the rooms for such a small hotel. They were updated with a nice size bathroom. It was great for 2 yet a small enough hotel I would feel comfortable letting the kids grab food or run downstairs without... More

A good boutique hotel amongst the major colleges on High Street. Design is simple but room is clean and good size. Ideal location and with a popular all day restaurant. Convenient parking at the rear of the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We have just returned from a weekend in Oxford, staying two nights at the Old Bank Hotel. The location is perfect (on Oxford High Street). The staff were incredibly helpful, accommodating and friendly. The hotel is beautifully decorated, the hotel restaurant (Quod) is lovely with an outside terrace. The food in the restaurant is very very good. It is about... More

This is a most agreeable hotel in a great central location. Absolutely ideal for strolling off to the sights of Oxford city centre. It also has convenient free parking at the rear of the hotel if you are traveling by car. The staff were amiable and helpful throughout. And they responded well and promptly to several emails regarding requests made... More
