Try Mrs Philips on 1865 374189. Right next to the airport at Kidlington and cheaper than most also. Enjoyed my stay very much.

Cheers,

The Randolf springs to mind. Excellent afternoon tea!

Chirpy,

Failing that you could try the Old Parsonage Hotel. A touch pricy at 150.00 a room ,but the sausages are second to none.

Now, that reminds me of the night with that girl from the Cowley road in there, a bottle of bubbly and.........

Sorry got to go chaps.Ho ho.

Go and stay in Woodstock if you have a car. It's about 3 mins drive and very nice with some good pubs i.e The Crown. I used to live on w/stocj when I was at OATS. Look up w/stock on the internet. I know the Crown has accomodation above it, not too far to stumble! Alternatively if you are looking to spend proper money - the feathers is the one for you. If you stat there poromise me you'll rent the room that the lovely Gwenth Paltrow stayed in .

Oxford eh? Poor sod - the silky marketing department got to you too!!!!

Most of the Algerian asylum seekers swear by Campsfield House, conveniently located over the road from the plusher accomodation afforded to BA cadets in the days when such people existed. If not, try Upper Heyford Open Prison as recommended by self-sponsored students (now languishing in Arizona Open Prison)!

Seriously, try Woodstock (very posh) or if you have transport, some very good value houses in Eynsham about 6 miles away on the A40.

Enjoy Oxford (tee hee hee!!!). :rolleyes:

Dear Tailscrape!

Surely there can't be 2 girls from the Cowley Road. How unusual, did she leave you with a dent on your plastic. It was worth it anyway. Another meaning to afternoon tea and crumpet. That it explainss why it took me soo long to leave Oxford :p

If you contact CSE at Kidlington they will provide you with long lists of local accom'from renting a room in a private house to lux' hotac, with the full spectrum in between. If its not CSE who are providing the training, just ring with a speculative enquiry & ask them to send accom' list,worked for me !.
