Hi everyone,

When I registered for the convention, I had a lot of doubts. But thanks to all the participants of this forum, all my questions have already been answered. I will now be taking a bus from Heathrow to Oxford and expect to reach Oxford sometime in the afternoon on 26.11.04. Booking a hotel room is the only task remaining now. I would like to have a single room with attached bathroom. Does anyone have recommendations for a hotel close to the venue?

Thanks in advance!

Looking forward to see you all in Oxford,

Shekhar

email address for Acorn House and Newton House Nov 10, 2004

Their email address is acorn_gh_oxford@freezone.co.uk.

When I just called, they still had rooms available for Fri & Sat.

For Newton House, it is newton.house@btinternet.com, and they also still have room(s) that week-end.
A slight correction for Newton House: it is situated in Abingdon Road - I know Oxford can be a maze as I used to live there many years ago.

Hello Anne/Edward Nov 19, 2004

I wrote to both these on the day you posted this reply but am yet to get a reply. But in the meanwhile someone had posted a link to a site where I could book a room for £80 for two days. So now I shall be staying at Nanford Guesthouse. Thanks a lot for your help.

See you in Oxford,

Cheers!

Shekhar
