Best Western Linton Lodge Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed here on a Saturday night. It's in a nice, leafy part of Oxford and a taxi into the centre was only £5. Check in was easy and professional. Our room was number 20 on the ground floor. It was a bit small but well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was decent. We would happily return here.
I was told the hotel was recently refurbished. Everything does look relatively new and working, comfortable bed, room cleaned everyday and quality toiletries. If anything to complaint is the waiting staffs in the restaurant. Some need more trainings to appear more attentive and warm towards customers. We had breakfast and dinner there. Breakfast was decent but the same thing everything morning so after the forth time, we already got tired of the food. For dinner, there's not much to choose from but the quality is ok. The university park is some 15 minutes walk from the hotel and is the natural museum. So if the weather is good, do walk to these places. All in all, it's a good place to stay.
A nice hotel, situated in a side road in Summertown area of Oxford. The hotel was impressing me especially because of the standard offered. It is not rated extraordinary high or offers special equipment or highlights. It is just a clean, quiet and friendly house. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly. The restaurant is offering various breakfast choices and lunch and dinner ala' card or buffet. The food is good on typical English price level. The hotel offers in front or backside parking. Not luxury big but sufficient. The hotel will see me as guest again.
We returned to Oxford to attend our son's wedding at Jesus College and decided to stay at the BW Linton Lodge rather than in College. The hotel was excellent. The service was first class and the staff were efficient and always helpful. We will be returning to Oxford frequently in the future and we will certainly stay at the hotel again. We recommend the BW LintonLodge to you too.
I stayed at this hotel for about 10 days with a group. The strength of Linton Lodge is its friendly, attentive, and accommodating staff. Even though they are a multi-national (and multi-lingual) staff, they truly seemed to enjoy working together and serving the guests which is a reflection of good management.
A lovely traditional lodge. Hotel was clean and comfortable, staff were helpful, polite and friendly, Bar and restaurant reasonably priced for a hotel. Quiet location away from any main roads within walking distance of all the museums and colleges. Lots of regular public transport and the 'hop on hop off' stops just just along the road. Would definitely visit again.
The room would have been a little crowded if actually used as a double, but for me alone it was just about OK. It had been refurbished, fairly recently I guess, but there were some indications, especially in the bathroom, that it had been done on the cheap. Given the relatively high prices that can be and are charged in Oxford, because of the demand for accommodation there, and the higher profit margins that then are possible, skimping on things suggests that the owners are more intent on maximising profits than customer comfort. The internal walls are not well sound proofed - telephone ring tones, ordinary conversations, and TV/radio sounds from the next room were all too audible. The Wi-Fi connection was initially a little complex but I soon sorted it, and it worked OK, with a download speed of about 5Mps. Adequate buffet breakfast. Free off-road parking. Twenty minutes walk to the town centre.
The hotel is close to Lady Margaret Hall - a 10 minutes walk. It will be about GBP 8 to take a taxi from the train station to this hotel, or a 20 minutes walk. Staff are friendly. The elevator door didn't work very well so be patient. The room is small and there is no air conditioning. The window can only be opened a little bit. There's a electric fan though. There's a safe in the room which is great. The standard English breakfast is good.
The hotel is clean and the room was well appointed. The buffet breakfast is not exceptional but has everything you expect. Staff on reception are pleasant those in the breakfast room get on with the job but are not particularly friendly. The shower in our room did not always give hot water. It is a good location for visiting, the are of Summertown just up the road is a good alternative to the City for an evening meal.
I stayed here for one night whilst on business. The hotel is situated in a residential area near summer town in oxford. Not too far to walk to the shops although I could only find one pub which was a bit of a pain. However it was a nice one with good food. The hotel is well presented and fairly modern, I was greeted by a nice guy at reception. He gave me my room key which was on the ground floor, I mentioned that I had requested a 1st floor room. He offered to move me but suggested that I checked his room choice 1st. I'm glad I did as it was huge and well equipped. Iron, hairdryer, tea/coffee iPod dock, alarm clock and toiletries. Located near the back on the hotel so it was very peaceful. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection although it wasn't very hot. All in all a good hotel, despite some negative comments on here I was pleasantly surprised.
