This old building has been upgraded quite nicely. Rooms are typical European size (smaller than typical US for same price range), but importantly the bathrooms have been nicely upgraded and are a good size. Very helpful and friendly staff. Central location lends itself to walking around downtown Oxford. Enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed here for one night during the process of dropping offspring off at one of the nearby Colleges. The location of the hotel could not be better. On the High Street and directly opposite Queen's College and the University Church means that it was incredibly easy to get to many of the academic buildings. The hotel itself is decorated in...

The Old Bank Hotel is, well, old. Having said that, it has been renovated and really was lovely. They had one elevator that runs slowly, but also had stairs, which I opted to use most of the time. My room was on the top level and faced directly across from Oxford University - stunning! I had dinner in the hotel... More

I recently attended a lunch in one of the private rooms for a wine reception, 3 course meal and talk by Ken Hom. All ran very smoothly co-ordinated by the General Manager who was very welcoming from the start and helpful/hospitable throughout the duration of the afternoon. The food was beautiful and drinks were always being topped up, with guests... More

If staying in Oxford, especially for a brief stay, The Old Banks Hotel is the perfect choice for its location & view. Staff is very friendly, rooms are very nice and functional and breakfast was good. The free walking tour offered by the hotel was led by a very interesting and personable gentleman by the name of Chris. Thoroughly enjoyed... More

Yesterday, I co-hosted a lunch with the celebrated chef and broadcaster Ken Hom, at Oxford's Old Bank Hotel. Under the coordination of GM Ben Trusdale, the Old Bank team delivered an outstanding event. The food was first rate, the service was efficient and friendly, and all of our fifty-five guests left feeling incredibly positive about their experience. Thanks to all... More
