We booked 3 rooms for 2 nights to have a short break in Oxford. The hotel is very central with spacious rooms and really good service in all departments. Although we booked different room standards, they were clever enough to put us in rooms near each other which made it very easy for us all. We had a 6-month old... More

Staff were probably the best I have come across for quite some time - courteous, efficient and very helpful. The room was comfortable and generous in size (it's always nice to be upgraded). The general look of the hotel is stylish, but using very neutral colours which might seem dull to some but was calming to me. Some parts of... More

Had a one night stay at this hotel and really enjoyed it. Our room was comfortable and warm and very clean. Service and reception from staff was first class. Big bonus for a hotel in central Oxford was the car park behind the hotel. Easy walking distance to all the main attractions and colleges in Oxford. Breakfast was varied and... More

You just can't beat the location of this charming hotel. Seriously, you could spend days exploring just the streets around this hotel. It's right on bustling High Street, across from the covered market. I had room 44, one of just two rooms at the very top of the hotel. The dormer windows looked out over the rooftops of the city,...

Having messed our dates up and arrived one week later than booked, the reception staff made no fuss, gave us a room and with no charge for the no show. The room was very pleasant and quiet at the back of the building. The restaurant served good breakfast and lunch, again great staff. Perfect location in the middle of town,... More

Stayed for one night and booked a 'Deluxe' room. Nothing wrong with this hotel - nothing to really dislike, but neither was there anything about it to encourage us to visit again. Location in Oxford was very central though very hard to find by car through the Oxford traffic system with all its pedestrianised streets. Hotel staff were very friendly... More

Thanks so much for your review. So sorry you weren't impressed with room 39. We do actually get quite a few requests for this room as it is on the 3rd floor and looks out over Merton tower. The better views are at front of the building but generally rear facing rooms are quieter. I hope to see you again... More

This is a beautiful looking hotel in a great location (though somewhat spoiled by some depressing looking art). It benefits from having a car park which it offers free to guests. Staff are very attentive. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Food is excellent and the service in the restaurant is very good. The lounge area for guests lacks... More

Thanks so much for your review. I'm sorry you didn't sleep very well. Your room was back facing so generally thought of as quieter. However, I acknowledge there was a problem with a housekeeping cupboard that was not correctly dealt with by my housekeeping team. As you correctly say we did acknowledge that a mistake had been made and I... More

We were in Oxford for a long weekend to experience the atmosphere and sights of Oxford and the university. Old Bank Hotel is in the perfect location for your visit to Oxford. It's located very central amongst the university colleges. It's within 10mins walk of all the main attractions with most being only a short stroll. The hotel is very... More

Three of us enjoyed a 2 night stay here. Dinner was very nice and reasonably priced. We also had afternoon tea which was fine but nothing to write home about. Breakfast was a little disappointing - not too much choice and service very poor on second morning (we asked for a couple of things which were never delivered). The hotel... More

The building has a wonderful position in the middle of Oxford's High Street, and it a very beautiful building to look at. The lovely atmosphere continues inside with a modern twist, but still very classic. I came here for afternoon tea and was extremely impressed with the price and quality of the food, a variety of sandwiches and an endless... More
