I was living out of a suitcase whilst my dear wife was in hospital. My problem was finding accommodation at short notice, with parking, in a tourist city, at a reasonable price. Fortunately it was out of season, so I soon found the Lina and booked for one night. I arrived to find that the few parking spaces available to... More

I traveled solo to Oxford Oct. 31-Nov. 4th, 2013 for a conference, and stayed in this B&B. I chose it because the price was reasonable given all the other places in the expensive area and read good reviews. I arrived early at 10:30am (early flight) and neglected to inform the Lina prior (my own mistake); however, they were so kind... More

This B&B is nicely decorated for a basic B&B. The room was comfy enough. Unfortunately, the blinds didn't work and curtains would be much better. Personally I'd prefer a duvet to sheet, but that is personal choice. My only real criticism is that the bathroom could be a lot cleaner, it wasn't nice to see the last person's toothpaste on... More

I have stayed twice at Lina Guest House. Last year (2012) I booked a room with an onsuite bathroom. Overall this room was good although a little cramped. The bed was comfortable, the room clean and well appointed. Breakfast was basic but satisfactory. Serving staff were pleasant and helpful. Concerns, however, for the ensuite bathroom were as follows: no place... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely little guest house in Summertown, Oxford. The rooms I used was clean and pleasantly furnished. The only downside although not for me but for a man using the basin to shave. It was a little narrow/small. I have to say the Manager Sebastian was amazingly helpful and a wonderful host. So... More

Recently stayed here on a 1 night stopover, basically you get what you pay for, the rooms were not the best just somewhere to rest your head. The breakfast was again basic, served to you rather than self service. Overall adequate. Thought their pricing policy was a bit steep if you happen to break anything,coffee cup £15 to replace, a...

The best thing one could say about Lina Guest House is that its rates were cheap. That said, I thought it represented poor value for money for the following reasons: 1. Room was not clean. Dusts had accumulated in the standing lamp which showed a lack of attention to hygiene by housekeeping 2. Difficulty reaching reception for check-in. We were... More

We were in Oxford for a weekend City break. The guest house is about 25 minutes walk from the centre along a main road. Every website states clearly that the breakfast is continental and it looks very nice, but we requested an English breakfast as offered in the room folder and it was delicious. The owner could not be more... More

Only booked it as a last resort,it was the only available triple room in Oxford for the dates we needed. And they obviously using it as an advantage , because for £105 a night the quality of the room and breakfast is very poor. Beds are uncomfortable, especially single bed in triple room. Tap broken, shower is not properly powered.... More
