Hotel Overview

“Our favourite Oxford hotel (though we can also recommend its sister, Old Bank), this ancient, characterful, wistaria-clad house has recently had a total facelift, including superb new beds. Its panache remains: a venerable door leads into the welcoming bar/restaurant (good food) with log fire; there's a pretty roof terrace; bikes are available.”

"Through a pretty courtyard with large umbrellas for summer dining, and the original front door believed to date from 1660, you reach the reception hall, with original stone hearth and crackling fire."
