Stayed at Oaklands House in room 7 in August 2013. Wasn't sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. Our room was excellent and a very good size. It also had a safe and a fridge providing a pint of milk and more than enough tea and coffee not the usual one cup of each and that's your lot.... More

Owner is inviting and very nice. Our room was very nice and fully renovated in tastefull style. However the nice bathroom could be cleaner and the public areas could have been cleaner too. I loved the breakfast. Overall good.

On arrival at Oaklands House we found the exterior of the property to be need of a facelift, however when inside it was very clean and welcoming. We were taken to our room which was a good size with an even bigger en-suite. Because this was to be a relaxing break i chose this accomodation because it had a pool... More

Don't be disappointed when you arrive at this b&b. You will discover that the exterior of the property is tired and rather neglected compared to the interior. The interior is excellent. The Oaklands House is a remarkable find. You have in the owner a person who must strive endlessly to create an exceptional experience. She clearly takes all matters of... More

Just got home after 4 nights in room 1. After a warm welcome we were shown to our room and were instantly impressed! It was a large and exceptionally clean room with lots of homely touches, the air con unit was welcomed in the very warm weather we were lucky to have. Our highlight was the pool area which was...

This was my second visit but I paid extra for a double room for single use as the single room last time was really small. Room 8 looks onto the pool but being on the ground floor other guests walked right past the window so you couldn't leave the window open at all. The hotel is on a corner so... More

Thank you for your feedback. Since your first stay and after your previous comments about our single room, we asked subsequent guests their thoughts on the room, all wanted us to keep the double divan, rather than replace with a standard single bed.so this we have done. We have moved the wardrobe & chair, which gives the room a lighter... More

Lovely place and convenient to walk or drive into Sandown. Rooms very clean and freshly decorated. Jan and family are very friendly and welcoming. Buffet breakfast is all nice, good quality food and fresh with a lot of choice. Just across the road is the Yarbridge Arms (see reviews on trip advisor) - all I can say is that the... More

Just come back today from staying for three nights at Oaklands House, IOW and cannot praise it highly enough. We had room 1 which was everything you could want, with a small fridge, tea, coffee, biscuits, jug of water, toiletries in the bathroom and a lovely big shower. Room was a very good size. Breakfast was very good and plenty... More

A great location for this hotel. Easy to get to all of the places we enjoy. However, a bit old and needing a renovation in places but it was fine and good value. Our room (6) was quite small but had nice touches (hairdryer, toiletries and even slippers). It was lovely and clean.The bed gave us both backache which was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. As with all old buildings there is always work to be done, last winter alone 2 bathrooms and the reception area were renovated along with a host of smaller jobs. This winter the plan is to replaster the hallways, as well as redecorate any rooms that we feel need updating.... More
