Oxford is situated on the M40 motorway, with direct buses every half hour
from Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport. There are also direct train
services from Birmingham International Airport and Central London. Journey
times for all of these are approximately 1 hour. Please note that there is
no ca parking available in the Hotel, but there are good Park and Ride bus
services from the edge of Oxford.

The Randolph is less than generous with its corporate room rate: £140 per

Other hotels include: 

The Royal Oxford Hotel (fairly central)
The Eastgate Hotel (ditto)
The Cotswold Lodge Hotel (North Oxford - 15 minutes walk)
Linton Lodge Hotel (North Oxford - 15 minutes walk)

The Holiday Inn is a new building on the edge of Oxford near the Park and
Ride, with all the charisma of multiplex cinema. 

There are numerous up-market B&Bs in Oxford, and small hotels. One cheap one
that I have heard reasonable things of is the Riverside Hotel. I will try to
get phone numbers and prices of these to you, but this may be enough for you
to make a start with. 

I have suggested to Martin that we have dinner on the Thursday evening at
the Cherwell Boathouse restaurant (near the Linton and Cotswold Lodge
hotels). If the weather is good we could precede this with an hour on the
river in punts (part of the Oxford experience). Let me know if this appeals
so that I can book a table. I will be able to make suggestions for pubs for
other evenings.

Looking forward to seeing you in Oxford.

Best wishes,
