Where to stay in Oxford County (or.... where to sleep off your food coma!)
If this is important to you, I'd recommend speaking to the staff about having a room more central to the main hotel. Our room was a bit of a walk from the main reception and it's possible it was just too far away to pick up a strong signal (again, great for those who want romance and privacy!)
Pack your stretchy pants!
