“Lovely room and friendly staff but noisy heating system”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Linton Lodge is about a 20 minutes walk from the centre of Oxford and offers free parking. Our double room was spacious and comfortable, with 3 chairs and a desk and plenty of floor space. There were 3 steps up to our ensuite. It was all very clean. Our only gripe was the heating system which came on intermittently from 4am onwards and which kept us awake. It may be localised to our room , 103. Otherwise we had a very enjoyable stay

I stayed here one night on business. The public areas have had a cheap makeover but the rooms are shockingly out of date. Lights not working in the room and generally tired and dated. The chairs in dining room are so low you feel like your gran at Christmas sat on one of the emergency chair's.

Pros: Good bed, nice black-out curtains which really worked, free parking, staff were pleasant and helpful.
Cons: Our room had mildew in the corners of the shower, pink mildew along the bottom edge of the shower curtain, a hair inside the pillowcase (before it was used), and a dental floss pick thing on the floor next to the bed.
The bathroom extractor fan was very (alarmingly) loud, but inefficient, and as it was a small bathroom it was like a sauna after a shower and the fan didn't take the steam out (which would have helped with the mildew).
The room lighting was a bit dim - with all the lights on at night I had a hard time seeing in the room's mirror. We could hear footsteps from above and outside the room.
Breakfast included cheap quality beans (more sauce than beans), juices from a machine (not very nice), and water also from a machine (cloudy) which we decided not to risk. The croissants were supposedly "fresh-baked" but they would have been grounds for the guillotine in France (they were awful).

I guess this counts as cheap (for oxford!) and cheerful. All a bit tired in decor but friendly helpful staff, reasonably on the edge of central for location. Room clean tidy and comfortable. Tea and telly in room. Free parking.

Stayed 1 night as a business traveller, and was pleasantly surprised. Very friendly reception staff, warm and welcoming. Room size was adequate but would never be described as spacious, décor felt slightly dated, but room spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. The only criticism of the bathroom was the shower rail height - even at the top of the rail I had to bend to get my head under, even though there was adequate room to fix the rail to allow 6ft (+) people to shower properly....

Restaurant was very clean, but a little soul-less, lighting was too bright. Waiting staff were very attentive, without being intrusive. A fair selection of dishes on the menu, and not priced excessively. The meal was delicious and exceeded my expectations, the chunky chips possibly some of the best I've tasted.

Breakfast was almost as good as the evening meal, even though it was served hot buffet style, and have certainly experienced far worse!!

Would recommend the hotel and I am even considering staying again with my other half for a weekend away....

I chose this hotel because I know Oxford and knew it was an easy walk or bus ride into the city. My room was a bit small: not much space around a double bed, but it was adequate. The weather was rainy so I didn't go into Oxford, and nor did I walk up to South Parade where there is a restaurant I like. So it was dinner in the hotel. Well cooked, presented and tasty if a little un-inspiring. Excellent wine by the glass. All the staff are very friendly.
