This hotel is very well sited, in the middle of the city, within easy walking distance of the colleges and other city attractions like bars, shops and restaurants. Behind the classic façade it is a modern, vibrant hotel with interesting artwork throughout. We stayed in a downstairs accessible room which, whilst not large, was big enough, with all the usual amenities. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in for some time. The shower room was genuinely accessible, with a level entry shower and helpful rails for the shower and toilet, without giving a clinical appearance. The Ren toiletries were nice.
The Quod Bistro is very popular with non-residents and serves a decent meal at a decent price. The cooked breakfast looked good with generous portions, but I couldn't recommend their muesli!
There is also a "library" where you can relax in a quieter environment.
The staff were professional, pleasant and helpful, and sent a complimentary half bottle of wine to our room as it was my birthday.
The hotel car park was a bonus, as parking in Oxford can be a challenge.
The Old Bank Hotel is not the cheapest, but it has a lot to offer and I hope to return there.
