What a delight! We arrived at our room and were pleasantly surprised at the size and cleanliness of the room. The Old Bank Hotel is centrally located in Oxford, England and full of old world charm. When I discovered I had not brought the correct converter plug for my curling iron, the front desk quickly supplied me with what I... More

We were very happy with our three nights stay at the Old Bank Hotel. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was excellent both for mornings and nights. Location is always key to us and the hotel was brilliantly situated in the heart of Oxford. Will recommend and book for any future stay in Oxford.

This hotel's location, and service are great. I stayed here on a business trip so price was not much of a concern. Staff is very helpful and professional. The rooms are spacious and very comfy. The building is old, so, rooms may receive some outside noise but I was bothered by it much. Overall great hotel.

When we arrived at this hotel our room was not exactly what we had reserved in advanced. After we complained, however, the hotel staff did all they could to make up for it, resulting in a happy and comfortable stay--most especially Ellie, who was extremely kind, highly professional, and all-around fabulous. In the end, our room was just fine. The... More

Everyone was so helpful from the moment we called from the street not knowing how to find the car park. The front desk team was so accommodating and thoughtful, helping us navigate our brief stay smoothly. The gentleman responded within 3 minutes of a call that that the refill tank on our lavatory wasn’t working properly. Breakfast was delicious and... More

My husband and I stayed here for the last three nights of a trip in England and Wales, and it was the perfect location for seeing the sights of Oxford. We walked to theaters (live and movie) and there are countless eateries nearby, as well as a stop for the Hop On, Hop Off buses. We had a rental car... More

This hotel is a gem. The rooms are nicely appointed (with fast, free wifi), there is an excellent on site restaurant and bar with a fantastic atmosphere and the staff are great. It was good to have a bath as well as a separate shower with quality toiletries provided. The hotel car park is a tight squeeze and you can... More

Had a wonderful stay in a room overlooking the university. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, staff is very attentive and kind and the restaurant was a great place to have dinner with friends! The room was ver comfortable and the art at the hotel is truly unique.

This hotel is in a wonderful location, you can't get a better location in Oxford. Check-in was fast and efficient. We arrived a bit early and our room was ready in fifteen minutes after our arrival. The hotel staff are all personable and helpful. Everything was explained clearly. They offer an afternoon tour of Oxford which we did not take... More

We chose this hotel based mostly on tripadvisor reviews, but were disappointed. The price was exorbitant, and for that we expected a beautifully appointed room, with classic charm. Unfortunately, the room would have been appropriate in a down at the heels hotel. On the plus side, the location was excellent, and the staff very helpful and kind and professional. The... More
