I was a student at Oxford in 2008 and 2009. I last stayed at the hotel in 2009. I want to state this information right up front in my review.
Now, this is a perfectly lovely little neighborhood hotel. The location, a short walk from the edge of Oxfordshire is a huge place. In addition, be a little off of the "hustle" of Oxford (okay - honestly . . . it's Oxford, it's not Times Square - there is no "hustle" to the town) is also very nice.
The hotel offers very clean and well maintained facilities. Yes, they are not (as other reviewers have pointed out) 5-star accommodations - but that is not what you are paying for. The grounds around the hotel and the quaint little neighborhood where the lodgings are situated are all really fantastic. There is a true "country" feel to the environs.
What makes the hotel a great find is the proximity to Oxford and the colleges. I literally walked back and forth a couple of times a day (yes - it can be a bit of a haul) when I was last in Oxford for a conference at Davidson College. Great exercise!
I enthusiastically recommend this quaint little hotel. The one caveat I would offer - if you are looking for luxury, stay at the Old Banks Hotel. However, if you are looking for a great value and a really lovely location - stay at the Best Western Linton.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The BEST WESTERN Linton Lodge, 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
