Three friends away. It must have been refurbed, everything had the new smell. Lovely rooms, massive tv, comfy twin beds which sufficed as we all had our own rooms. Staff were exemplary, happy from the maintenance man up to the reception guys. Great choice for breakfast, cereals, full English, continental. Would definately return.. I must say, I'm English but I witnessed a couple and a single lady being rude to the staff. If it was not for my friends I would have said something. No need to be rude, you tar us with the same brush.
Very expensive for a basic room no frills and basic. Breakfast was ok. Small bar with only bottled beer. Ok if you just want to rest sleep and watch the world go by. Free parking and WIFI Rooms tidy Looks like hotel is being expanded and close to town
Stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip and was very impressed with the hotel. Very smart and modern, all the staff were extremely pleasant and happy to help. Breakfasts were excellent with a good variety and plentiful supply. Bedrooms were well appointed - I had an executive room with bathrobes, full tea and coffee making facilities and ironing board and iron. Hairdryer was also included as well as plenty of good quality toiletries. we found parking not a problem and it was a 20 minute stroll into the centre of Oxford with numerous bars and places to eat. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel.
On the plus side it is clean and I would guess has been recently redecorated. Breakfast staff friendly. About 15 minutes walk from City Centre. On the negative, the shower in our room 204 would not stay in place and kept turning toward the wall giving the wall a shower rather than me. An alarm went off in the middle of the night. Parking is only free if you are only there between booking in and booking out times. We arrived at 12:00 on Sunday and asked reception if we could leave our car there while we went into Oxford. (Something we have done with many hotels in many places with no problem. )We were told fhat we could but as check in is not till 3:00 p.m. We would have to pay £2/ hour. Two things wrong with this. 1. There was only one other car on the car park so it wasn't as though they were short of spaces. 2. We took our car into Oxford and only got charged £2.50 for the rest of the day. So although they advertise free parking it is only partly true. Probably will not stay here again.
Hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the city-centre and, as such, charges less than the ones closer to the centre. Car -parking is free for hotel residents (provided they have a permit from reception) The rooms are small and comfortable but not brilliantly furnished (I stayed in room 1 and the bottom of the bed had a hole in it). The bathrooms are adequate and cleaned to a good standard. The hotel seems to be popular with for foreign guests whose concept of breakfast is not the same as the locals ! It's a decent place to stay and the staff are friendly. I would certainly stay here again
a place I stayed recently on my University visit this place was clean BREAKFAST: full English was good, buffet lacked spreads, staff very friendly and attentive ROOMS are extra small as this is a period property BASIN was without a water mixer, just an old victorian " burn yourself or use ice cold water " setting LATE CHECKOUT is pricey this hotel has very noisy floors!
Very welcoming staff at a clean ,warm hotel .Good position as able to walk to city centre leaving car at the hotel with free parking. Very good nights sleep in a comfortable bed followed by a delicious breakfast .All staff attentive and helpful if needed.
We checked in about 4pm and there had clearly been no heating on in our room all day, and with 2 exterior walls and an icy wind outside It was so cold we had to go out. And because the room was a good size it took an age to heat up, even with extra heaters. That aside the room was perfectly comfortable and functional. My wife and I though were not impressed with the general hotel décor or, more particularly the badly fitted carpets which rucked up into distinctly trippable ridges. The bar is tiny and had no draft beer, only rather pricey little bottles. We didn't breakfast or dine in the hotel, so can't comment on the food. The other negative was the hotel's distance from any shops/restaurants/bars... although there were buses into town at the end of the road. The positive was the pleasant and proficient staff.
The problem with Oxford hotels is that they know they can get away with charging ridiculous prices and skimp on service. So it's reassuring to find a hotel that doesn't. Situated just off one of the main roads into the city, Linton Lodge offers off street parking (and it'll let you leave your car there the next day for a small fee) a friendly welcome and a comfortable base. Rooms are not the largest I've ever come across but they're well equipped with iron, TV, desk space and tea and coffee making facilities. Bathroom (actually shower room) also a bit small but nicely done with complimentary toiletries. Breakfast the next morning was varied with both hot and cold options. Was impressed to hear the person checking in in front of me had a small complaint which was immediately dealt with. Will very happily stay here again.
It was much as expected. A bland but very functional and clean room. A little on the small side but I was only here for one night so not a problem. Check in and out simple. Breakfast fine. All in all, uninspiring but adequate.
