We really enjoyed our stay at Linton Lodge, the Reception area was lovely and modern but our room was tiny and old looking, which was unexpected from the photo's we'd seen when booking. The decor wasn't a problem despite it being unexpected but I did expect to have more for the £100 I had paid for 1 night.

The room was clean, the bath also incredibly small. The staff were lovely and really helpful, couldn't fault them at all. Overall our stay was perfectly fine, the hotel was fine, you just don't get a lot for your money.

Room and bed very small, cleaning erratic ( found a t- shirt belonging to previous guest in a drawer.) and decor tired and worn. Tiny Bathroom not ventilated with very poor water pressure in shower. staff polite but hotel needs to up its game considerably to be charging this kind of price. Would not recommend and will not stay again.

The Linton lodge hotel is under going a refurbishment programme. The reception area is very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. The Rooms are of a good size and are clean and modern. The hotel is about a 20-30 minute walk from the city centre and on the bus route.
I thought it was a little pricey £170 but i think I book on a graduation day, when the price in oxford rocket.

I used this hotel for a group visit with 15 graduate students. The quality of the rooms was quite nice. I had a room facing the road which meant that there was quite some noise (especially with some late night people outside) but tolerable. Breakfast was included and was excellent. Good choices and quality. Pleasant surroundings and service.

On the negative side check in was slow and getting heavy suitcase upstairs for me (an old man) was a struggle. Price reasonable. And it is a nice walk from a great restaurant (Cherwell Boathouse) and also from the Oxford City Center, which we enjoyed thoroughly.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel and have to say we enjoyed the weekend. The hotel has nearly finished refurbishing the public areas to a very high standard but the bedrooms and corridors upstairs are still looking tired. However, they were clean on arrival and cleaned daily to a high standard and the beds were comfortable. We didn't have dinner (and there was no visible dinner menu around to encourage you to do so) but we did have breakfast which was lovely. Food was good quality and plenty of choice. The staff were also very pleasant, as were the gardens at the back where you could sit and have a drink.

Our main complaint was the heat. It was a hot weekend and the bedrooms were unbearably hot the whole weekend. To their credit, each room did have a portable fan but these are noisy to sleep with if you're not used to them, so we had the windows open constantly. As our rooms looked out over the front of the hotel, it meant there was quite a bit of noise at night with people coming and going, or congregating down there for a smoke, which combined with the heat, meant we didn't sleep well on a night. Maybe as part of the room refurbishment the hotel should consider installing air conditioning so you don't have to open your window.

The rooms are also quite small, but this didn't really bother us as we didn't spend a lot of time in them. And our smallest complaint is the use of 2 litre bottles of soft drinks as mixers, making you feel you were using a makeshift bar in a village hall rather than a hotel bar. Little things like that make all the difference, especially when you're not paying a cheap rate.

All in all, its a lovely hotel in a great location. We parked our car and didn't use it again till we left, as you can walk or get a bus into town. I would use the hotel again,

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out the back as probably less noisy if you have your window open.

I stayed here last night for one night on a visit to Oxford for leisure. The hotel and room were clean and tidy with no complaints. Yes, they are still working on the front entrance but this did not inconvenience our stay. It's a 15min walk into the city which is ideal and it's just off the Banbury Road where you can pick up the sightseeing tour bus.
