“A standard decent hotel, just don't forget your earplugs.”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Stayed here for a week in 2013. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the hotel itself is located in a nice residential neighbourhood. The only major drawback is that the walls are paper-thin and I was unfortunate enough that a family with small children occupied a room just above the mine. You can imagine what it is like to be waked up early in the morning by children running around. The breakfast in the restaurant was very nice, but I would not recommend the restaurant for lunch or dinner. If I had to pay for the stay on my own, I would probably try to look for a different place, but for a short business trip it was ok.

As we knew before we booked, the hotel is undergoing major refurbishment and is therefore like a building site at the moment. A lot of dust and very little in the way of comfort in the bar/lounge or public areas .
That said, the room was clean and the beds fairly comfortable. It was for one night but I wouldn't stay any longer. Its about a 15 minute walk into town center, or as you enter onto the main road, buses are fairly frequent. The breakfast was quite good, a help yourself buffet (including tea or coffee )For the price (£85 for a twin room ) I would stay in a town center hotel and pay that little extra;at least until the building work is complete.

Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property.

On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologise for not exceeding your expectations. At Best Western we strive every day to provide a superior customer experience. I am sorry we weren’t able to do that for you. We will use the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we provide a better experience in the future.

We have endeavored to complete our ongoing refurbishment programme with as little disruption as possible to our guests. We have advised on our website of the refurbishment work being carried out but it is clearly a very fine line between advising potential clients or putting them off.

Once again my sincere apologies.

Yours sincerely,

It would have been nice to have been advised. Heating in the Executive bedroom inadequate, needed extra heater. No hot water in the morning. Very dirty back entrance to hotel. Cheerful staff, all young and foreign. Breakfast comprehensive albeit cooked part rather cool. Will be nice when finished no doubt.

I stayed one night at the Linton Lodge for a work trip, and I had no problems, but no expectations either. My room was perfectly comfortable (and well equipped with iron, kettle, hair dryer) but it was a bit small. The bathroom fixtures were a bit dinky, but everything worked fine. The hotel has no particular charms but is perfectly functional.The staff appeared friendly and helpful, but I had nothing to ask of them. The breakfast buffet was varied and filling. All in all, it was a good night's sleep with nothing to complain about. Do be aware that the hotel is on a quiet residential street and not in the center of Oxford, which is a 20-30 minute walk away. That's maybe an advantage if you arrive by car and don't want to fight your way into central Oxford, but a problem if you arrive by train.

I'm sure this hotel has potential, the staff are lovely, but as it is currently undergoing renovation and the fire alarm went off twice during my one night stay I cannot recommend this place to anyone!

We stayed here in December 2013, for one night. The room we were assigned was supposed to be for two people, it would not have been a comfortable single room. Bathroom was tiny, plumbing truly awful and space so cramped we had to take turns to pass each other in the room. Car park at the rear of the hotel was primarily occupied with a giant skip which had a conveniently placed sofa behind it, handy for the weary traveller. Will not be returning in the foreseeable future.
