We stayed here in September and had a wonderful anniversary weekend in Oxford. The hotel made our weekend very special. The location of the hotel is brilliant and the staff at the hotel were very helpful and attentive. Although our room was quite small, it was decorated lovely and had enough wardrobe space. The bathroom was a sufficient size and... More

It is very seldom that you can have such a superb stay at a hotel and rate it as faultless, but we have just returned from a two night stay at the Old Bank Hotel which is situated in the middle of Oxford.(easy to find with the use of a satnav) The staff were all wonderful especially as my husband...

We stayed for two nights having a business meeting on the first night. The location is excellent and parking fine but quite a squeeze to get in if its busy. The hotel staff were very helpful. The room was well equipped however very hot so it was either noisy and desiccating from the air conditioning or really too hot. Ask... More

This is an expensive hotel. It is a good hotel but you pay a premium for it's position in the centre of Oxford. So, if it throws down with rain for the duration of your visit, and you spend your afternnon sat in your room, you feel that you did not get great value for your money. The hotel did... More

This is a great option for an Oxford stay. The staff was top notch; the rooms, while a bit quirky, were well appointed and stocked with extremely comfortable beds. Located city center, it's perfect for walking to just about everything including the wonderful trails along the Thames. The one negative for us was driving to the location. Do not trust... More

Thanks so much for your review I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. That is very sound advice as regards driving to Oxford. I always recommend guests to plan it and not rely on their satnav's. I hope to see you soon. Ben Truesdale More

Oxford is not exactly brimming with Gucci new boutique style hotels and the Old bank is beginning to look decidedly tired. We had what was described as a deluxe room, the room was of a medium size and decorated in a palette of muddy clays. There was a comfortable king size bed and a sofa and two armchairs with a... More

Thanks very much for your review So sorry to hear you were disturbed by the housekeepers in the morning. This really is not expectable at all and not what I would expect of my staff - I will certainly review with the housekeeping dept. The high street facing rooms tend to have the views of the city but are not... More

All the great reviews are well deserved. This is a very comfortable hotel in the heart of Oxford. Our daughter is attending Oxford and this hotel was close to her College. It is in the heart of Oxford and walking distance to virtually everything. There is no better location. The rooms are very comfortable if a bit small -- but... More

Stayed here over Christmas 2013 with my kids (grown up). The staff here are so friendly and helpful, the rooms were perfectly fine for us, we had one double and a triple that slept three adults very comfortably. The restaurant and food were fabulous. Great location. All in all staying here made our Christmas special.

The hotel has an excellent localization, in walking distance of all the main attractions in Oxford. The room is of average size, not too big. The bathroom, the bed and towels are very good. There are coffee facilities and free wi-fi. The breakfast (paid separately) is good, with a la carte options or the continental or English breakfast. The brasserie... More

We had a really nice time here. It's a boutique place with a reasonably good restaurant in a stunning location. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, really went out of their way to accommodate us. The room and bathroom were very tastefully done and we like the art exhibited throughout the hotel. The bedding was fantastic and we had a... More
