Google is not being my friend here
Days Inn Oxford M40
When we were there about four weeks ago we went to the tourist info office who found us a B&B for £70 for one night, and it was a cheaper one. Really if you want to be in the city you need to book well in advance, but it is not cheap. I would go for travelodge simply because they are reliable. IME I wouldn't stay in Oxford if I could avoid it, you might get amuch better deal if you stay outside the city and use public transport to get in and out.
Yeah, I always forget that other places have public transport
Thanks for that, I'll bear it in mind. There's an exhibition on that me (and maybe a friend) want to go and see which finishes on 26th September so we have time to search.
iirc there's a Travelodge next to one of the Park & Ride car parks which makes getting in and out easy.
You do recall correctly!
It's at the Peartree park and ride:
Good regular bus service from there into the centre of Oxford.
We stayed here
The Crooked Pot
200 Abingdon Road
Oxford, OX1 4RA
01865 200 055
a month or so ago, not far from town, friendly people, really great breakfast, proper quality cooking, basic room, clean and comfortable.
It's a pub with rooms above run by a Swiss guy and his missis, pubs a bit soul less. would go again, it was difficult to find anything we found.
Airbnb is worth a go:
Where are you travelling from? Oxford is a day trip from London, Bristol, or Brum.
Used to be called the Berkshire House and was genuinely one of the shittiest pubs I've ever been in.
Have a look around the Abingdon area for Bnbs/cheaper hotels Mads. I lived there for 5 years and it's a lovely town with frequent bus travel to Oxford.
Just resurrecting this, as I'm here for 3 days and I feel like Alan Partridge. I've my tent in the back of the car. Might sack it off if the weather gets nicer.
We stayed at the YHA. Cheap and cheerful.
Yeah tbf that ain't a daytrip, it's a turn up and have a nap to recover from the travel and then hope you have the energy to do something else that day trip.
I hope you find somewhere lovely to stay. Or at the very least, somewhere warm and dry with breakfast
Agreed. The YHA is relatively (less than 15 years) new and has private rooms.
Oxford Backpackers is hilarious, but really not for people our age. 4 to a room is just not my thing any more.
