What about Malmaison in Oxford? Hang on

here although used to be a prison and haven't been there partly for that reason!

I do fancy hotel du vin in Henley.

Le Manoir has rooms, I believe...grin

We rang Le Manoir for late availability back in May and they did have a room for the following night, and could do it for us at a mere £925

Burlington comes out #1 on tripadvisor none of this much help mind you as is not personal recommendation, sorry.

le manoir rooms all booked. which I kind of sighed with relief at. they're just a little on the pricey side...

overall I'm not panicking now. have managed to book lunch there on said day so the worst that can happen is I don;t drink and have to drive us back. would be really nice to find a pub in teh same village

At stadhampton-cant remember the name of the place! something like Hungry Bear!

hatwoman Tue 05-Aug-08 17:16:07

I must be after a popular day - even the 4-figure rooms are booked.

WideWebWitch Tue 05-Aug-08 17:16:31

anything on Alistair Sawday?

JackieNo Tue 05-Aug-08 17:18:43

3 miles away?

WideWebWitch Tue 05-Aug-08 17:18:49

Crazy Bear? is that what you meant?

hatwoman Tue 05-Aug-08 17:43:59

thanks everyone. Found a nice place on Alisdair Sawday - but it's booked up. JackieNo's Farm place isn;t answering the phone and crazybear looks good too.

Stay in the rooms at Le Manoir. For the price of a leg, you can sleep in absolute luxury and comfort after stuffing yourself silly. The rooms are loverly

hatwoman Tue 05-Aug-08 17:48:16

q - they're full. we did it once before and I agree they are really lovely
