Finding a hotel in Oxford at a reasonable price is difficult. The Best Western Linton Lodge is a very good deal with a room and breakfast at a decent price. The rooms are on the small size and the hotel a bit of a rabbit warren with hallways upon hallways and multiple doorways. Yet, I've rarely found a hotel with a staff that is uniformly so pleasant from the cleaning staff to the front desk. For those who don't mind a 15-20 minute walk to downtown the hotel is very much within reach without a bicycle or taxi.

Room Tip: Eat (and drink) at the Lion and Rose pub just a 10 minute walk off of Banbury on N. Parade. Especia...

We stopped off here on the way to the Lake District for one night. Huge great room on the ground floor with views of the lovely secluded garden, where we sat after arrivalk and enjoyed a cold beer. We arrived earlier than the advertised check-in time but the courteous staff put up no objection to our checking in and putting our bits into our room. We spent most of the day in Oxford - the hotel is in a very quiet, leafy and obviously wealthy part of the city - and the hotel's location enabled us to walk in and out in 20 minutes.

One problem that we did bring to BW attention - one half of the Emperor-sized bed was collapsed - so one of us (!) had a very poor night.

Breakfast was fine - not spectacular - but for 60 quid, including free-parking 20 minutes from the centre of Oxford, this was great value for money and we will definitely use it again when we spend time in Oxford.

Visited with a coach party returning from Royal Ascot for an evening meal. Although our group was small in number we were treated excellently and made most welcome. The meal was served efficiently and the food good value, Staff were very amenable, and overall pleased with the package. We will look to returning again in the future and recommend the restaurant to others.

We stayed with a group of about 30 people at Best Western and it was all in all fine. Though they were a bit too bureaucratic during the check in, it went well. Rooms were ok, not really spacey, but fine. Breakfast was rather good.
Unfortunately the hotel is about 2 km from the Bodleian Library etc. away, so try to take the bus to get back to the hotel.

Stayed at the Linton lodge with my wife for the weekend and was very pleased with our choice. It is set in a very quiet road about a 15 minute walk from the centre of the town.
We had a warm welcome on arriving at reception and were quickly checked in.
The room itself was a good size, nicely furnished and with a good size bed. We didn't eat at the hotel itself, we made use of the numerous cafes, pubs and bars in the town centre. Had a great weekend and would recomend Oxford and this hotel for a great break.

Stayed at Linton Lodge yesterday for one night. Hotel was a £6 ride from the station and again around a £6 ride into the town centre.

Arrived at 3.15pm and was told that although check in was at 2.00pm our rooms weren't ready and that a check in time doesn't guarantee entry into your room. Strange, as I'm sure we started paying for the room from 2.00pm. Anyway, after a drink in the bar we were informed that at 3.45pm our room was ready.

Room was nice and bright and yes, it was clean. Beds were comfy. Generally hotel staff were polite and helpful. Walls were a bit thin and you could hear neighbours voices and doors slamming as people checked out early next morning but otherwise hotel was quiet.

A good base for a short stay in Oxford.
