Professionalism, empathy and kindness are some of the excellent qualities of manager Mima Pilarova. She made our stay to be a wonderful experience. She took care of our problem with car rental, arranged transportation for us and booked dinner for us in a very tasty restaurant. She also upgraded our room when we mentioned that noise from terrace was annoying.... More

I stayed here for a quick overnight visit, but would definitely return. The staff were helpful, gracious, and attentive. They helped arrange transportation to London and brought me ice for an injured ankle. The location is fantastic, the room was lovely, the restaurant is quite good, and the hotel offers a terrific, free walking tour of Oxford.

Old Bank Hotel has been our home in Oxford during the years our daughter studied at Keble College. See my years earlier review. It never fails to make us comfy! This stay, however, crowns it all. We returned to attend our daughter's graduation ceremony and brought my elderly parents for almost a week. Many reviewers talk about their 'perfect' stays.... More

The Old Bank is a beautiful hotel, with a fantastic restaurant and waitstaff. Unfortunately, after many years of visiting Oxford and anticipating a stay here, we were very disappointed with our experience. The rooms are uneven in terms of size, amenities, and location in the building. Of course this is to be expected in many hotels, particularly those older ones... More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed some aspects of the hotel and restaurant. However I'm very sorry to hear that you felt that the front of house team didn't offer the service you were expecting. If our guests are unhappy with the room that they are allocated we will always try to find an alternative, which I... More

The Old Bank Hotel is on the High Street at the very centre of Oxford, just a few minutes walk from some of the most beautiful university colleges. The rooms are comfortable with air conditioning, TV, wi-fi and en suite bathrooms (excellent showers). The service is first-rate, especially the ever-helpful Reception team.

Very comfortable hotel. Beds are a bit soft for my taste. Staff very friendly and accommodating . Air conditioning a bit of a problem. It is either off or on. We would run it on low fan while we went out and shut it off when in the room. Had to turn it on at night and it did get... More

From the recent reviews I wished I had stayed a night. However, it was only lunch this time and I was not disappointed. It was Sunday and one of the hottest days of the year so we were lucky enough to be seated at the rear of the property in a lovely courtyard with umbrellas to keep the heat at... More

My first trip to Oxford was made even better than anticipated by my stay at this wonderful boutique hotel. I was given a newly refurbished room on the 2nd floor which was beautifully appointed and decorated. The bathroom was completely modernized and, for the UK generic small scale rooms, this was at international standards of roominess and quality. I had... More
