Beautiful hotel, clean, stylish, Covid friendly. Lovely, friendly staff. Right in the middle of everything. Dinner at the quod restaurant was superb! With covid restrictions in place you must Plan and book all restaurants ahead of time. We booked in the quod on first night, brunch at victors on Saturday 11.30 which was great fun and really great atmosphere, and no1 ship street on Saturday night. The burger in the Quod was my favourite! Superb x We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and the hotel kindly left us a bottle of champagne in the room. Couldn’t fault it one bit.

We stayed here for two days a few weeks ago and found the hotel, the staff, the location and the restaurant (Quod) to be absolutely first class. The hotel is right in the centre of town but the parking was easy. It is obvious that the owner(s) have spent a great deal of time and effort on the hotel design, fittings, ambience, etc and continue to assist in the day-to-day running. A kind of relaxed, elegant and tranquil atmosphere. The hotel arranged a private ealking tour of Oxford for us (with Isobella) which was excellent. We will definitely return there and highly recommend it.

We had a three night stay in this hotel. The hotel is very central and has a car park. The hotel is very nice although the room was a bit small but nothing to complain about. The room was clean and well stocked. The staff ate also very helpful and professional. We would certainly stay there again.

Stopped here for my wife's 50th birthday treat . Located on High St, perfectly situated for Oxford shopping, and colleges , Christchurch meadows and the botanical gardens. We booked a dining package for the attached quod restaurant. The hotel is beautifully decorated and has an amazing collection of artwork displayed throughout. We had a deluxe room facing onto the high St. View was amazing over st Mary's Church and the Radcliffe camera. Picture is the view from room 40. Room had a huge comfortable bed, bathroom was modern, spotlessly clean and had an amazing monsoon shower. There is some road noise due to the position of the room, didnt bother us, but if you are a light sleeper choose a room at the back of the hotel. Quod restaurant was excellent, and decently priced. Covid measures were good, staff cleaning tables as soon as they were vacated. The hotel had left a happy birthday message in our room with some complimentary cakes which was a lovely touch. The staff were all lovely and service was great. Would highly recommend this place. Thankyou to all at the old bank.
