Very basic room with (room 16) with tiny wardrobe. Severely limited WIFI and staff (poor command of English) unable and unhelpful in trying to find a solution. Very expensive but quality is poor. Many better alternatives in Oxford. July 2015

We stayed at this hotel last summer while visiting our daughter. It was a lovely hotel- clean, airy, pleasant. The room was big enough- I never expect European hotels to have spacious rooms; the bathroom was quite luxurious. The service and amenities were great. Great location- places for breakfast and tea were steps away. We took a bus from the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Old Bank Hotel while visiting our daughter. The staff could not have been more helpful and the room was lovely. They were extremely helpful with accommodating our ever changing travel plans and we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We hope to visit again, Thank You!

Oxford is not blessed with first rate hotels, and make no mistake, Old Bank is a very good hotel. But interestingly enough, the rooms are smaller than London hotels in the same price range. (And the probable reason is lack of competition). Having said that, it is important to emphasize that the decor, service, quality, indeed everything, is wonderful.

Our family was visiting the area for the Ludovico Einaudi concert in Woodstock, England on June 28. We stayed at the Old Bank Hotel and we were not disappointed. Right in the heart of Oxford, great views from our room (we had the top floor) and terrific staff. The hotel restaurant Quod is fantastic. The staff there is wonderful as... More

My wife and I stayed there for four nights in June for an event at the University, and it was a delightful visit in all respects. The hotel is situated in the historic heart of Oxford, within walking distance of everything. It is a renovated historic property right on the High Street, with everything done in a first class manner.... More

All hotels in Oxford are luxury (or are priced as such), the Old Bank is no exception. The place is great though, and the location is phenomenal. It is right next to the examination school and across the University Church Tower - where you can go up and see the entire Oxford from above....truly stunning, please do it! In any... More

Having eaten in their restaurant 'Quod Bar' several times, and thoroughly enjoyed the food, and i must say an excellent choice on the menu, and including a great atmosphere, I booked in for a weekend treat to this hotel. For a hotel situated in the heart of Oxford, parking was not a problem to rear of hotel, gaining access down... More
