Luxury Hotel in Oxford
The independently owned Old Bank Hotel, situated on Oxford’s High Street, is a breathtaking statement in design and arguably one of the best locations in Oxford. Awarded the Best City Hotel 2011 by the Good Hotel Guide, it is surrounded by the famous colleges of Merton, All Souls, Christ Church and University and is directly opposite the Bodelian Library and Radcliffe Camera.
This Georgian era hotel has forty two luxury bedrooms, all air conditioned with marble bathrooms, great views and the latest technology. Stimulating twentieth century paintings fill the space and include Paddy Summerfields ‘Handheld’ collection commissioned for the hotel, Stanley Spencer drawings, Sandra Blow, Craigie Aitchinson, Michael Ayrton, Roger Hilton and Henrietta Dubrey, having been collected by the owner over the last thirty five years.
Quod Brasserie with its terrace and bar is the hub of this boutique Oxford hotel. Open all day and serving simple, seasonal food, the vibrant brasserie is the place to meet in the city. The specials boards often feature produce from the owners Rofford farm, just outside Oxford, including Poll Dorset lamb, and Sandy and Black Pork. The Red Room and Gallery private dining rooms, are the perfect way to meet or celebrate, surrounded by an amazing collection of young British art, including Damian Hirst.
The Ashmolean Museum, the Sheldonian Theatre and the Pitt Rivers museum are all within minutes of the hotel and can be visited on a hotel bicycle. Alternatively take a complimentary walking tour with Isabella Underhill, our art expert and Oxford resident.
