We are looking at booking the Cotswold Lodge hotel for a 2 night first visit to Oxford due to a very good price deal we can get (reviews seem reasonable). Location is Banbury Rd, OX2. I am aware that this hotel is not in Oxford city centre. It seems feasable to walk into the centre of Oxford from there. Does anyone know the distance? Also, what is that area of Oxford like for restaurants (for dinner), anything good nearby? Thank you, Tabby.
