Dh and I are going away for the night in July - without children! It is a compromise of a trip - Oasis at Milton Keynes on the Saturday night for him and possibly shopping at Bicester on Sunday for me. The main thing I want though is a lovely hotel. We had planned to stay at Villiers in Buckingham as we have stayed before for a wedding but they are booked for the weekend we want. And I am having trouble finding anything else as nice.
Can anybody recommend anything?
It really needs to be no further than 45 mins from Milton Keynes Bowl so it is not too awkward after the concert. I would have loved to have stayed in the Cotswolds but I think that may be too far.
Please help! This will be our first night alone in 4½ years.
I was thinking of up to £150 for a double for one night.
We never really go away and rarely stay in hotels so I don't know what you have to pay to get somewhere nice ie not a travelodge!
I haven't told my dh this is my budget - he'd probably flip.
Both The Bear and Moore Place are out unfortunately - The Bear is fully booked (I'm not surprised, it looks lovely) and Moore Place only book a minimum of 2 nights.
Am very interested in the Woburn Inn which does have vacancies. What do you think?
Thank you all for your very helpful advice!
We have booked a room at The Inn at Woburn. Luckily they actually had a vacancy - turns out we are going the same weekend as the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Am very much looking forward to it now.
