Although we haven't stayed here I must say that the carvery meal has been a hit with my family and friends every time. If I had to be really critical it would be not enough staff monitoring the bar . In general the waiter/ waitresses are friendly and helpful. The atmosphere ... well you make your own... great meal for... More

Stayed at Oaklands for two nights while attending my friend's wedding at the hotel. Lovely place, courteous staff, fabulous room. The breakfast was beautiful - self serve buffet and plenty of it. Carvery was nice, staff very helpful. I booked the Weekend wishes package which was cheaper than just booking the normal two nights. Had carvery included and upgrade on... More

We visited with friends for a carvery meal as it is a favourite place of theirs and we've been several times before with them. The carvery was okay, though again the Yorkshire puddings were too hard to cut into! Not many choices of pudding but at the price of £10 for 2 meals it was a cheap and cheerful menu.... More

The wedding - we attended our friends wedding at the oaklands. The wedding breakfast was tasty with good portions as was the evening buffet. The rooms were decorated to match the theme. The accommodation - we stayed in a lodge. When we first got there we were greeted with your rooms not ready despite paying to check in at 12... More

The Oaklands Hotel is well overdue for a makeover. The first room I was allocated was dirty and in need of a good clean. My subsequent room was just ok. The breakfast and carvery were good but again the restaurant could do with a good clean and or a makeover. The staff were very helpful in resolving my many problems-... More

We stayed at the Oakland for a wedding and felt it was overpriced and in desperate need of updating. The rooms were 'tired' with chipped paintwork, matted carpets and cheap bedding. The room was also quite stuffy even with the windows open and the fan which was provided was incredibly noisy and well past it's sell by date. Our wedding... More

Staff very friendly and efficient. Always a smile. Nice hotel and lovely breakfast with plenty of choices. Good wifi signal. The area around the hotel front entrance needs a tidy. Didn't look too welcoming because beer barrels etc were stored there. No lift but once you get your suitcase up the stairs it's not a problem til you have to... More
