we stayed here for just the one night, from the moment we walked in we were greeted with warm smiles, helpful suggestions of where to eat in oxford and a high standard of customer service. The room was at the front of the hotel with excellent views and a very comfy bed, breakfast was good. However we did have a... More

So glad you enjoyed. We are certainly lucky to be so close to the colleges. We're surrounded on all sides by the beautiful architecture of ancient buildings filled with the history of centuries upon centuries of learning. More

The Old Bank is a wonderful hotel that we were recommended by a friend and we loved it! To have parking that is free behind the hotel is such a huge plus. We treated ourselves to a deluxe double and it was amazing. It was on the top floor and had the most wonderful views over the spiers and the... More

Stayed in the old bank for a one off "child free night". The location is great, its easy to find by car, as there is no one way system to navigate. Plus it has a car park which isvry handy in Oxford. Staff very very polite and helpful, rom was a standard one, but was lovely and fresh/clean. Easy to... More

Thanks for the review and I’m glad you enjoyed. Generally guests like our beds but obviously it's a matter of taste. We do have bed boards to give a slightly harder feel, if required. More

I stayed for 3 nights in # 17 for a business meeting. Lovely room, nice soft bed and duvets, free internet and an excellent shower. I asked for a room on the quiet side and did have some noise from the garden, but since it was only April this was not a problem. There was still a lot of construction... More

Thank you very much for your comments. Thankfully the works on High street are completely finished. We're all very happy indeed. You're right; I would not normally expect you to have to ask for more shampoo and toilet paper. Our intention is to renew on a daily basis: apologies for the oversight. I hope to see you again very soon. More

The great thing about this hotel is that they respond to your requests.We stayed in a front facing superior room, our request. The traffic and roadworks make it slightly noisier than we prefer. So try a rear facing room instead. The room is a very good size and well equipped. Food in Quod excellent. Staff in restaurant personable and friendly.... More

I stayed here for 2 nights last week, and honestly this hotel has completely exceeded my expectation, and I would highly recommend it.

Thanks for your review. I believe you may have been checked out by one of our new staff as it did sound a touch fussy. I'll certainly look in to it. More
