Hot and sticky atmosphere. Crowded (Sunday lunch). Carvery meat was average but a bit on the stingy side. Veg was awful, been standing around for ages. Desserts were good. Had to ask 3 times for a coffee order to be taken. Had to queue to pay as we left . Indifferent staff. Cheap though. Won't be returning.

Friendly and helpfull staff. The english breakfast was delicious, with fresh fruit and very nice danish pastries too. The rare garden is beautiful and perfect for my morning yoga. Rooms are small with quite old furniture but cleaned and fully furnished. Happy about the choice!

Well placed for the business that I was visiting. Hotel was clean & staff friendly. With a little more attention to detail on maintenance issues, this would have been a 5 star review. Items only minor, generally in public, high thoroughfare places but if attended too would "finish the job". Only eat breakfast in the hotel but food was well... More

This hotel was a good base for exploring the local area. We enjoyed the breakfast and used the bar the service was okay, relaxed atmosphere. Lovely gardens and veranda. However, on our arrival there was a function that took over most of the hotel so retreated to our room. The room was very warm but clean with toiletries provided(no hairdryer,... More

Booked my wedding here which was the best package they had, table place settings wrong, canapés weren't handed out but staff were eating them behind the bar, not enough welcome drinks to go around, drinks during wedding breakfast were slow, food took so long to come out that we had to miss the cheese and biscuits until the evening.

The Oaklands advertises wedding packages quite widely, and what it does , it does well. My brother recently held his wedding here, and we were pleasantly surprised. The service itself was very nice, well thought out words and professional without being starchy. The food for the reception was extremely good, no faults at all and the profiteroles were some of...

I booked 4 single rooms for myself and friends on a golfing holiday in Norfolk. It is an old fashioned hotel, quite clean with good food. 3 floors with no lift, it is not difficult to climb. We took an all inclusive package including dinner which was great value for money. It is well used by commercial clients which is... More
