The Old Bank Hotel
Oxford

The more centrally located sister hotel to The Old Parsonage, the Old Bank Hotel is situated at the end of Oxford's High Street. As the name suggests, this buzzing and stylish hotel was formerly home to Barclay's Bank and is laid out over three elegant Georgian townhouses. The hotel's 42 rooms are understated chic quaint and comfortable, you'll feel at home in no time. Perfect for those who want to stay in the heart of the action, the Old Bank is surrounded by historical beauties such as Oriel and Merton Colleges, All Souls and the Bodleian Library Radcliffe Square is just across the road. Also on your doorstep you'll find the city's best shops, theatres and many restaurants. However, you might want to stay put because the Old Bank's Quod Brasserie is a highly atmospheric and absolutely beautiful place to eat in both summer and winter. Make sure to also check out the brasserie's sister joint, Gee's. Both Quod and the Old Bank have a serious focus on 20th century British art. Art lovers will be delighted to see works from Damien Hirst, Craigie Aitchison and Roger Hilton displayed proudly.

Client Testimonials

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
