Our party of 8 visited the Oaklands hotel for Christmas Day lunch, the food was not bad but seemed to lack some basic prep. Overall the service and rudeness of the staff is what really let the establishment down. It took them 2 hours to serve us and this is not because we are slow eaters. We then got asked... More

Reception on arrival booking in was fine but slow. Room was clean but a tad chilly but soon warmed up after putting heating on. Noise from next rooms TV was off putting but as only one night stay not too bothered. Receptionist called us to tell us what room our party was in. Impressed. Meal at £8.95 was adequate for... More

Last weekend was my second time staying at this hotel as a solo traveller. Having gone to university in Norwich I was stunned that I had no idea the hotel or this pleasant area of the city even existed, and so close to the city centre. You can jump on board bus 53 right outside the driveway, and be in... More

We stayed here in April,and booked it the night before ,the rate was reduced. However our room was pretty shabby,I think we were on a floor with a lot of workmen as they seemed to get up very early, and work was going on in the marquee below around 8 am. The windows didn't close properly, and were desperate for... More

Booking The Oaklands Hotel for a one night stay after a relaxing spa was sublime. Beautifully presented rooms, a four post bed and whirlpool bath made for the perfect retreat at the end of the day. The staff were very professional and polite, nothing being to much trouble. Situated on a road, within walking distance of plenty of lovely old... More

To start with the food was absolutely dire, a piece of dried shrivelled beef coiled up in an even drier piece of Yorkshire pudding, wet soggy rice from a packet, boiled potatoes, chilli mince and a piece of ham with garlic dough balls...what a concoction. The DJ...made Les Miserables look like a good time. Never again.

i stayed here for one night on business trip. For what we paid it was what I expected for the money. Clean small room with on suite facilities. What was amazing was the two of us ate at their cavern restaurant, 2 course meal for £10 for the 2 of us. Great food at amazing prices! I don't know how... More
