Other Places to Stay

There are several hotels and B&Bs on a few minutes walking distance from St Edmund Hall, for example, in Iffely Road, St Clement’s Street and High Street. However, please note that March/April is a busy time of the year and accommodation can be difficult to find and can also be expensive, if not booked early.

Based on poor feedback from past delegates we strongly advise that you avoid Cherwell Guest House, 137 Iffley Road (previously Nanford Guest House) and Balkan Lodge Hotel, 315 Iffley Road. 

Below is a selection of websites that give further information about places to stay in Oxford. Participants are responsible for making direct contact with the accommodation providers. Furthermore, this information is for the benefit of the participants only. We have no association with any of these organisations or websites.
