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

Great central location, very helpful and attentive staff and fabulous hotel bar and restaurant. Would definitely say this should be your top pick when looking for a hotel stay in Oxford. They even have bike rentals on site!

The hotel is an ideal location in the centre of Oxford. We parked with no problem in the car park. Reception was fast and efficient. Offered complimentary newspaper. We were shown to our room on the third floor overlooking the road - good view of the "dreaming spires". WIndows double glazed - I'm a light sleeper and noticed little noise.... More

You can't beat this location for a hotel. The room was adequate and the view was great. The art throughout the hotel was excellent, but for the price the room was nothing special. The bed was comfortable and the service was fairly accomodating. However, there were issues with the 24 hour room service menu - the night manager told me... More

I spent three nights at this hotel while running a training programme in Oxford. Of the various hotels which I've stayed at in Oxford, this by far has the most comfortable bed - soft and supportive. My room had a very good shower and a clean and relatively spacious bathroom. The location is excellent for all things Oxford and was... More

It is a great place to stay, get up in the morning , go for a run on Christchurch meadows , which is just behind the hotel and than enjoy the shower at the hotel thereafter. The breakfast is very...

Decided to 'push the boat out' and booked a superior deluxe. Expected something quite special but it really wasn't. Overlooking the busy road but with double glazing. Whilele we were watching a movie on TV, someone walked across the room overhead and we could hear them above the TV volume and the traffic! That was the last straw so we... More

Room was great. Nice sitting g area and plenty of walking room. Bed was very comfortable. Staff could not have been nicer. Hot breakfast was surprisingly good. Will be staying there again on our next trip.
