The Best Western Linton Lodge hotel is situated on Linton Rd in Oxford, UK. It takes about 15-25 minutes (depending on pace) to walk to and from the city centre from the hotel. The interior reception area, restaurant and bar area are nicely decorated, in an old style. The bar is a typical bar for a small hotel in the UK. They have Sky TV in there, although it wasn't working for most of the time I was in there. The restaurant serves decent food, with a reasonable variety on offer. You can also get food from the bar, which may be more attractive if you want quick service and a more relaxed atmosphere.

I booked a single room, at a cost of 60 pounds sterling per night (including all taxes), which is about US$120. This is a reasonable enough rate for a hotel. It may be expensive for those from the U.S. due to the strength of the pound compared to the dollar, but so will all other hotels in Oxford. The room was a good size, with plenty of space, good wardrobe space, an armchair, a reasonable desk area, a TV, and a generous "single" bed. It was more like a small double bed than a single (or as the Americans call them: twin) bed. There was a decent number of channels on the TV, including Sky Sports News which I very much enjoyed! The room was very warm, but there was a fan which eased this problem nicely. Also supplied was an ironing board and iron, a kettle, some coffee and tea, biscuits, a decent en-suite bathroom with a hairdryer, and two good sized mirrors in the main bedroom.

While I was staying in the hotel, they were having trouble with the Wi-Fi internet access, which was quite irritating as this was one of the main features I wanted from the hotel! It worked intermittently, and the speed was quite poor. It was certainly not good enough to be advertised as "Free High Speed Internet Access". I suspect that some of these issues may be resolved soon though, as there has been a local computer repair company's van parked outside all day! It was also irritating that the Sky TV in the hotel bar wasn't working, as I was looking forward to watching Manchester United playing Sheffield United, whereas instead I had to resort to listening to people talk about it on Sky Sports News in my room!

The only real fault I can find with the room is the annoying creaky floors, that are a feature throughout the room! It could be argued that the room was warm enough to warrant proper air conditioning, but the supplied fan did the job for me! If you want a reasonably priced hotel that's in a decent location (you will find plenty of more expensive hotels in the city centre) this is a decent offering. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the hotel is nice inside (although it is quite ugly outside courtesy of the horrible best western sign over the door). If you can afford it, stay in the city centre!

Hey Elaine, thanks for the comment! Well, I flew into London Gatwick and got a bus from there to Oxford. A return ticket costs 28 pounds sterling, a single ticket costs 21 pounds. This will drop you into Gloucester Green bus station (it's the last stop), which is in the middle of the city. Right around the corner from the bus station, there is a taxi rank. My taxi from this rank to Linton Lodge (about 1.5 miles) cost 5 pounds. This might seem quite expensive for such a short journey, but there is a minimum charge which hiked up the price. The distance was definitely walkable, but when you have luggage it's not too enjoyable I'd say! I've read that a taxi from London Gatwick to Oxford will cost you 100 pounds. I'll be getting a taxi back to Gloucester Green in a few hours as I'm heading home today, so I'll let you know how much that cost later! I'll be posting more info about Oxford as soon as I get home and back to a good internet connection! :)
