    Excellent service from all the staff we met.

    Room was stuffy and reduced in size because of the sloping ceilings. More overnight/early morning noise than we were expecting.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Everything. Friendly, professional and helpful staff. Knew everything! Beautiful common areas with well chosen art, a lovely room, smashing courtyard/garden with restaurant and bar. Lovely quiet resident's lounge. Great food, good wine and couldn't be in a better location. I wish every uk hotel at this price point offered so much.

    Nothing. I got what I expected. May be even a little more!

    few lounge areas . room air con was noisy , and poor, the bed was well sunken in gave me poor sleep

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The location was excellent - in the heart of town with easy access to many sights. It was very clean and staff were extremely polite, helpful and friendly.

    More of a disappointment really was that the room did not equal the high cost paid (£239) or the image shown online. We were surprised at how small it was with barely any room between the chairs and the bed. The image online had shown a generously proportioned room which did not match the room we stayed in. Having enjoyed stays at many 4* and 5* hotels in the past the price we paid at The Old Bank did not live up to expectations. Nevertheless the location was excellent as were the staff.

    The OId Bank hotel is really fabulous. It is in the very heart of Oxford. Fully recommendable.

    The staff we thought were exceptional in attention to detail and were constantly looking to enhance our stay

    The breakfast - food normally good at Quod, but this time the bread was stale and dry, and overpriced

  • Single
    8.8

    Excellent position, parking available, room perfectly proportioned and well kept, nice touches like the welcome letter and the weather forecast for the next days left on the bed, very good choice of amenities in the bath room at level with truly luxurious hotels (and better than some 5 star hotels). Friendly staff, but I noticed some of them are outstanding, others less helpful, not always the excellence is attained at the front desk. I loved the lounge in the back a very quiet and relaxed spot.

    Windows need a good wash, as well the curtains...

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff were totally professional yet welcoming and unfailingly helpful. The rooms are well appointed with a high level of toiletries, bathrobes and other little extras that make for a comfortable stay. Notwithstanding the fact that the restaurant and terrace are so close by the rooms are also very quiet and allow for an undisturbed night. The food is unpretentious and straight forward but very well presented and represents good value for such a central city setting. All in all I would recommend this hotel highly.

    Location

    Nothing - I thought it was really very nice.

  • Single
    10.0

    To be honest, I liked everything about the place. The staff were friendly and ready to help in any way they could. The place couldn't have been in a better location. With buses and transport services right across the road to take you wherever you need to go. The room service was excellent and very clean. The room itself was comfortable and spacious. The restaurant with the hotel was great. In a nutshell I was very satisfied and really can't complain about anything! I would definately stay there again and would recommend the place to anyone wanting to visit oxford!

    No sorry!

    Staff very welcoming. Room good size and quiet with a decent view.

  • Family with children

    Excellent service from staff. Very nice quiet room. Walking distance to almost all attractions and shopping within the city center.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Really enjoyed our recent 1 night stay at the Old Bank. The room was very tasteful, the staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant was excellent, the location cannot be beaten, and the onsite parking in the centre of Oxford is a strong plus.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    It's location in the centre of Oxford is very convenient and attractive.

    We thought the breakfast at 'Quod' was disappointing.
