Old Bank Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

If you're traveling to Oxford, look no further than the Old Bank Hotel. I enjoyed a wonderful stay here, and particularly enjoyed the library with board games and books to enjoy downstairs. The room service for breakfast is absolutely worth going for - the yogurt and granola was exquisite. The room was classically beautiful and no detail was spared; I felt completely taken care of and comfortable for the entirety of my stay. Highly recommended!

Excellent place to stay in Oxford. Big, comfortable, nicely appointed rooms with comfortable bed. Hotel restaurant offers very fine choices for all three daily meals. Location is very central, right next to Christ Church College. Staff is very helpful and professional. Thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

Superb location, superb accommodation, superb staff!! The restaurant was charming with a great choice and the food was stunning! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a sumptuous stay in Oxford.

We stayed in this hotel to attend a wedding in the Bodleian Library, which is just across the road. Staff were friendly and could not do enough to help. We had breakfast in the restaurant, which is also open to the public. The food was good. I would recommend the hotel.

This was a great stay in Oxford. We were fortunate to have a room on the first floor (one floor above the ground) that overlooked the high street. We had a lovely view of the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin and the Radcliffe camera. Oxford center is small and easy to walk and we did just that. Took about 15 minutes to the Ashmolean Museum, one of the finest museums in the world. We walked around the high street and to the river, the colleges and the different meadows. This hotel was very convenient to all the major sites. We even walked back to the train station although we took a taxi to the hotel from the station when we arrived. It was an easy walk, we discovered...mostly downhill! We ate breakfast in the hotel and it was quite nice. Not included, of course. We also had tea in the library. We were the only people there and it was a lovely experience. The hotel kindly held our luggage for a couple of hours while we had one last walk around town before catching our train back to London. Would definitely stay here again. They were able to accommodate three of us in a room (with three beds) and we still had room to move around. The bathroom was quite spacious as well.

Wow, what can I say? Wanted a venue to surprise my wife at Christmas before the onslaught of family chores began. From the moment we checked in we received 7* service. Personalised notes, an absolutely beautiful room, views across the city, a bathroom to die for, and food to rival anywhere. I travel the world and this is now my favourite go to place for service, peace and somewhere for my wife and i to remember that life can indeed be perfect. Thank you so much. We will be back. (I’m not telling you which room we stayed in as I want it to be kept secret.....!😂)

I have not stayed here before...... Why oh’s a beautiful building, amazing inside, the rooms are all like no one else has stayed in them. The beds are like lying on a cloud........I wish I was still there. The bar staff are lovely and there are great cocktails, gins and wines. There is a library behind reception, well worth a visit and they will service drinks there as well. Breakfast is excellent. I stay away a lot....but when I come to Oxford......this is my new home...

Beautiful modern boutique 5* hotel right in centre of Oxford. Room immaculate and tastefully furnished in modern fabrics. Bed very comfy and large. Tea, coffee, complimentary water etc all provided. Restaurant and bar very lively. Service good. Brekkie was ok but what I had not spectacular (vegetarian). Be warned if you are arrIving by car to follow the directions to the carpark and not to the hotel address on the high street whIch is what we did and then had to run in and ask where it was and hope we didn't get caught and fined for drIving through a restricted area!!

Unlike the Malmaison in Oxford, which flatters to deceive with a low entry price and then charges for everything on top, the OB price includes parking, a newspaper and a meal allowance. Probably comes out the same but I prefer to have the higher rack rate and no sense of meanness. In my view the OB significantly outperforms other hotels in Oxford with its quality of staff and service, stylish understated decor and comfort.

This hotel on the high street of Oxford is easy to access and a lovely stop while visiting this historic city. Staff were friendly and helpful, we booked a twin room as travelling with my son - room was a decent size with free wifi and coffee and tea with FRESH milk available. We had no problem with noise. Bathroom was again a good size with everything you would need.
