Let me start by saying that hotel accommodation in Oxford is greatly overpriced so this hotel would appear to represent good value for money. However, you have to be prepared to fork out nearly £100 for a room which, elsewhere, you'd expect to pay less than £50.
Rooms at this hotel vary enormously in quality and in size. I have stayed here several times and have only found one room to be worth anything special. The linen and furniture in the rooms do tend to have a musty smell and quite a dated appearance. One or two rooms I have stayed in have tended to be noisy also.
Having said that the rooms are musty and dated, I must say that the bathrooms do tend to be quite the opposite, very modern and clean. This is a pleasant aspect of your stay here but it is a pity the hotel could not have spent some more money updating the rooms.
I do enjoy breakfast at this hotel, it si serve yourself but there is plenty of variety to choose from and the atmosphere is not rushed.
The restaurant and bar menu does not seem to vary, which means that you face the same choice day in and day out, which could become annoying if you spend more than a couple of nights here. It is also a fair walk to the nearest restaurants! The bar does serve real ale but in bottles, so do take the time to look behind the bar for a small choice.
The staff here are usually very friendly, which is a great help.
For those of you, like me, who usually use the internet at a hotel, this one has free access. Not always that fast and it seems not always available easily in some of the rooms but a great benefit nonetheless.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Linton Lodge Hotel, previously 3 Edwardian houses still with some original features but fully converted, set in one and a half acres of gardens, in a quiet suburb yet just a mile from the city centre. Our brand new bright, airy and contemporary Restaurant, Lounge Bar and Reception have now been supplemented by our brand new Executive Bedrooms, many overlooking the Gardens, all adding to create a new vibrant look for the hotel. I do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon where you can see for yourself the changes that we have made. ... more less
