Bank 2

The Old Bank Hotel in Oxford has opened a new luxury rooftop bedroom with private terrace, following a seven-year planning process.

The 43-bedroom independently-owned hotel has now completed the ‘complicated’ project after overcoming a ‘myriad’ of planning issues, launching the new addition to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Old Bank Hotel opening in 1999.

‘The Room With The View’ has a button function that can open the curtains from the bed, the latest touch screen technology, underfloor heating, plus a dining table and bar / coffee making station.

A 55” Sony smart TV with Sky and a centrally controlled integrated music system and radio has also been installed. A Carrara marble clad bathroom boasts a view of Merton Tower at the rear.

The garden terrace features planting along with a dining table for four and two sun loungers.

The combined space of the bedroom and terrace measures 58 square metres or 625 square feet, with rates starting at £1,000 per night.

The Old Bank Hotel and 35-bedroom Old Parsonage are owned by Jeremy Mogford (founder of the Browns Restaurant group). They are the only two independently owned five star luxury hotels in Oxford.

Also, within the same company; Gees Restaurant, the Parsonage Grill and Quod Restaurant and Bar.
