AN OXFORD hotel is offering its rooms for free naps next week to make up for the hour lost when the clocks change. 

The Oxford Belfry can now be booked for the hour long sessions - but it's strictly one person per room. 

Owners DoubleTree by Hilton confirmed to the Oxford Mail that the offer, valid only on April 1, was not a April Fool. 

Herald Series:

People can book between noon and 3pm on a first come, first served basis. 

Guests will be given a pre-nap snack of a cookie and a glass of milk to unwind, before reclaiming the hour of lost sleep.

The chain's hotels in London, Southampton, Cheltenham, Cambridge, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh are all joining Oxford in the offer.
