I think we can all agree that Bicester Village is amazing! Buying luxury clothes at half price is pretty terrific. However, the popular shops get very busy and the only solution is to arrive at 8am. An overnight hotel is then a must. But which hotel should you stay at? There’s some excellent hotels in Bicester Village, and I’ll cover 13 of the best in this article.
Whether you want a Bicester Hotel Spa, cheap hotel or a pet friendly place, I’ve got you covered!
Walking Distance to Bicester Village
1. Bicester Holiday Inn Express: My personal fave
The Bicester Holiday Inn Express is my go to hotel in Bicester. I’ve been there multiple times – review here. For me, the hotel is ideal. It’s 10 minutes walk to Bicester Village, Parking is free and Breakfast is free. The hotel is clean and modern. It’s also good value, with rates from £40. I’ve had a good experience every time I’ve stayed there. I also earn IHG points, which I use to stay at places like the Intercontinental Paris.
2. Littlebury Bicester
The Littlebury is another hotel in Bicester Village. It’s just 10 minutes walk from the outlet mall. The hotel has been open since 1959, and looks to be a charming little hotel. Rates start at £120, and that includes a free breakfast. Given that there’s no pool or spa, I find this price to be a little expensive.
The Bicester Holiday Inn is definitely better value.
Relaxing Spa Breaks
3. Bicester Hotel Golf and Spa
The Bicester Hotel Golf and Spa is a 10 minute drive from Bicester Village. The hotel is located on a golf course and is the closest Spa Hotel to Bicester Village. The hotel also has a swimming pool, spa and tennis courts. It’s a great option for a relaxing weekend break. Prices start at £99/night.

The Lion Bicester is just a 5 minute drive from the Village – 2 miles away. There is free breakfast for all guests and parking is free. It’s also a pet friendly hotel. Prices start at £150/night, which is a bit of kicker. There’s no spa or swimming pool.

The Bell at Hampton Poyle is 8 miles from the hotel. A 15 minute drive. There is free breakfast and free parking for all guests. The hotel describes itself as “an Old country Inn turned into a boutique hotel.” Prices start at £90.

Bicester Village is a terrific place to buy designer gear at large discounts. If you visit, there’s every reason to stay the night or two. Make a weekend out of it! In this article, I’ve provided some excellent hotels to stay at.
If you’re new to my blog, then welcome! As I’m based in London, I travel a lot around the UK. The Radisson Blu Liverpool is one hotel that I’ve reviewed. The hotel has a great location in the city centre, as well as a swimming pool and spa. I wasn’t too pleased with breakfast however!
The Gulf Air Lounge in Heathrow Terminal 4 is decent, but certainly not spectacular. The highlight of my visit was the beautiful shot I got of a Gulf Air Dreamliner right outside the lounge. The lounge was well designed, but I didn’t enjoy the food. I’m picky, I know!
The Plaza Premium Lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2 is often voted as the best contract lounge in the world. I think the lounge is good, but definitely not the best in the world. After all, there’s no natural light. The lounge has a classy décor and a decent buffet spread.
