Cannot open windows, so much noise doors slamming, walls so thin.staff have a I dont care attitude. I have stayed at this hotel twice and neither stay was enjoyable. On both occasions I have had to miss breakfast which I have paid for. I will not recommend this hotel at all. An example of how to not run a hotel... More

Many Thanks for taking the time to write a review on tripadvisor. I am disappointed that you felt the need to write this review after I personally emailed you with a response to your comments, especially as you have failed to give all of the information on this review. You have said that the windows do not open, however when... More

Stayed here for one night last week, Friendly staff very nice room well decorated suitable for my needs after a day working, right in front of the harbour ,would be great on a summer evening. Reasonably priced. However no lift to floors, which would be a major drawback for some visitors. limited parking to the front of hotel but permit... More

Stayed here for an evening weddin g celebration of our niece. The welcome was very friendly and we were allowed to check in early as our rooms were ready. Had a drink in the bar next door and felt it was in part a shame we were eating at the function as the food being served to customers in there... More

It was okay. Very basic but staff helpful and room was comfy! I came to visit family and it was a perfect location. Only downside was lack of parking or parking permits for guests. It does get very loud at night but luckily I was in the back area so I could avoid the noise.

Well when we came down the hill and saw scaffolding etc our hearts dropped. How ring we were. Lovely people, comfy hotel and friendly and helpful staff. We had a great dinner there and the staff were genuinely interested in making our stay a great one. I feel that those who did not want to stay up til 3am needed... More

Worth avoiding if you can. An old, small, extremely hot hotel with poor beds. Try elsewhere if you can. Stayed as part of a group and no one enjoyed the hotel, warrants the two star status as just not a nice place to spend a night......

Stayed here for two nights as a birthday break and got there the young girl on reception was lovely and welcoming the older lady needs a little cheering up. The room had a lovely view of the harbour and was very clean and tidy. The only major problem with the hotel was the heat in the room even with both... More

Booked two rooms at the Oak for an overnight stay. The hotel reception is very organised and helpful and the hotel itself is very clean. Both rooms were comfortable with great facilities. Whilst the hotel had no parking we were able to park the car at a nearby multi-storey that was free for Saturday's. The only reason that I didn't... More

Having read previous reviews about this hotel I was really concerned, but as it was the only hotel that had a room available - I had no choice. I had booked a family room for my husband, son and myself. We arrived and managed to get parked immediately outside, free from 6pm to 8am. The receptionist was extremely pleasant, polite... More
