Stayed here and it was absolutely fab. On arrival I had a van to park so hotel staff guided me into courtyard rather than have it parked around the corner in a free car park next to the police station let me park across 2 spaces. Rooms were clean comfy warm and noiseless even although I was above the bar... More

We recently stayed at the Oakland Hotel and were very happy with our stay there. One of the rooms we booked admittedly was a bit dated, but none the less it was still clean and tidy. The staff were warm and friendly and the breakfast included in the price was more than sufficient. The Hotel is tucked away amid a... More

This hotel is clean, friendly, basic, busy and reasonably priced. Mainly contractors staying plus local people using the bar. Residents get 10% discount at some of the many places you can eat. Will try and give the Yatzen a review of its own. Would recommend it though. Rooms need updating. One down side is music until 2pm Friday & Saturday.... More

Good location with shops and numerous places to eat. I was there over a weekend and the music could be heard in my room which was 2 floors above the bar/nightclub. I found it not too intrusive. I found the staff friendly.helpful and polite. A good breakfast too The room was clean with a good shower.

Arrived at 9.30pm to find the deafening night-club in full-swing, and the the check-in desk surrounded by burly bouncers and drinkers which was a *little* off-putting, if not intimidating. That said, the girl behind the counter was extremely nice and helpful and pointed us in the direction of the free car-park (opposite the police station) just a stone's throw away.... More

We booked a couple of months for a friends party on a Saturday night. We were aware of the nightclub so requested quiet rooms at the time of booking. Check in on the Saturday was fine. Very impressed with the bar prices. Room was bright and clean. Bed was very comfortable. On arrival back from the party the nightclub was... More

Turned up at 8pm wanting to get straight to bed as my boyfriend and I had to be up at 5am so he could compete in a very important and strenuous half iron man race nearby. It took 30 minutes to get someone to give us a key for the room we had pre booked despite going to the bar... More

I have looked into the background of this booking and found that you booked this room on-line via Laterooms.com on 5th June for a 7th June arrival. The website does warn Guests about our Nightclub with music until 2.00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and advises that where possible quiet rooms are allocated. Due to the lateness of your...
