good quiet place to stay with modern amenities?

Quiet is a very high priority for us. What are some of the places in Oxford that would be most quiet? We also like large beds and good bathrooms, but I'll check those things later-- once I can get some sense of which lodgings are likely to satisfy that first important requirement.

Thanks very much.

(Also, about how far is Oxford from Heathrow? And from Bath?)

Try the Malmaison. The walls and doors are very thick - it was a prison.

The bathroom is in a separate, adjoining cell - so plenty of room.

Oxford is about 50 miles from London, Bath about 100.

Try the Oxford Spires Four Pillars Hotel - it is a large modern hotel set some distance back from the main road - and the rear is also a bit of a distance from the river. I also notice the reviews mention spacious rooms.

Thank you. I will read the reviews for the suggested lodgings. (I always read from "average" on down-- seem to get most specific and telling details that way.)

Oh - and just to update you on your other two queries - Oxford to Heathrow is 45 miles (and there's a good bus service between the two http://www.oxfordbus.co.uk/main.php?page_id=23) and Oxford to Bath is actually only 70 miles by road.
