Milton Keynes has a range of accommodation facilities to suit all budgets. Adjacent to the Campus there are two large accommodation complexes - the Hilton hotel and Accenture's Training and Conference Centre - both of which have preferential corporate rates with The Open University. There are many more hotels in the City Centre, a short bus ride away. There is also a smaller-capacity hotel with "character" in a manor house within walking distance.

This hotel is highly recommended for a short stay period as the hotel is located directly opposite the Open University.
