We booked a Saturday night stay for a wedding reception locally. As we didn't return till late (and after a few drinks) the noise from the bar wasn't a problem for us but be warned that it can get noisy. The room itself was spacious and clean. It had the normal facilities with free view TV, hairdryer, tea & coffee... More

We needed a hotel for our band to stay over after a gig in Hockley - we pre-booked this and didn't really know what to expect with only 2 stars (probably because there is a noisy nightclub downstairs at weekend but this didnt bother us as we never got in until the club was almost closing)- what we found was...

Stayed here on a Saturday night and knew that live music would be played till late. Had a room on the 2nd floor directly above the bar but heard very little noise. The room was spacious, tidy and clean. Normal facilities available in the room, tv, tea/coffee, reasonable bathroom with shower. The staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast, freshly cooked...

I don't recognise the room I was in from the photos - twin beds with plastic covers on the mattresses, drunken men on the landing outside my door during the night, no lift. Only way it would be acceptable was if you were as drunk as the clientèle. I was there for work so would never stay again.

What can one say after a night at the only hotel in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex other than, thank god I was at a party and thank god for alcohol. OK, no I wasn't expecting the Ritz and yes it was cheap, though not cheerful. Yes too you get what you pay for but with no competition, what can you... More

We booked in here for a Saturday night stay and after reading some of the reviews was a little concerned about our stay. I had nothing to worry about! The rooms were clean and very comfortable, the staff were efficient and friendly and breakfast was delicious. If you are looking for somewhere local at a reasonable price then look no... More

This hotel is situated in a pedestrian precinct in a modern town. our room overlooked the back yard to a group of shops, it was full of bins and litter. There is no aircon. The room was clean but basic. The plastic sheet on the bed was both insulting and uncomfortable - we took it off. The hotel has live... More

I have just stayed at the Oakland for 3 nights as I was on a 4 day beauty course in the area. I chose the Oakland because of its location in relation to wear my course was. I didn't want to drive far to and from my course. My first impression was that the hotel was dated, including my room... More

Have stayed here once, the hotel itself is fine, erring on the basic side but functional, comfortable and quite reasonably priced. Good food and conveniently located for other eateries and shops so all in all good. However, it really is spoiled by some of the locals, namely an ageing dyed blond mouthpiece that seems to think she is 40 years... More
