If there is one thing oxford is not short off, it is places to stay. Oxford is host to a whole range of accommodation from your traditional bed and breakfasts where you should be able to find a bed with breakfast included for £60+ per person per night, to the luxury of the Randolph hotel at more than £200 a night. Of course, normally you get what you pay for but it is worth looking our for last minute hotel booking bargains. Most of oxfords accommodation can be found stretching along the Woodstock road in the north through to the Abingdon road heading south, where customers can make use of the simple bus services that travel frequently to and from the centre of Oxford.
An alternative for the more adventurous tourist is to stay in an actual Oxford university college. Just call up your college of choice, perhaps Balliol college or Magdalen college, and you should be able to find a single room with a wash basin and daily housekeeping for roughly £20 to £70 per night, typically paid on arrival. When planning to stay in Oxford it is important to book well in advance, particularly during the peak summer months to ensure that there are plenty of rooms available.

The best business and leisure hotels in Oxford offer all the excellent facilities that guests have now come to expect in every city including spas, leisure clubs, business centres and fine dinning. Oxford's most famous hotels include the Randolph and Raymond Blanc's le Manoir but a new favourite has recently arrived on Oxford's luxury hotel scene, in the form of Mal Maison, Oxford Castle. This is a strange nomination for one of the best hotels in Oxford because it was formerly a prison, but it has been transformed in to an award winning luxury hotel maintaining many of the original features - worth a visit even if you dont stay there!
