We stayed in Room 32. The hotel had a band and DJ afterwards as it was Bank Holiday weekend. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. I realised I'd left an item of jewellery in the room when I got home. I phoned the hotel and they were posted to my home address. I couldn't fault my stay! Thank... More

Not sure we got the superior room we paid for, however it was reasonably comfortable and clean-ish (carpet stained and the bathroom was dirty in the corners toilet seat broken) When we arrived the window was open as it was a warm day, but the stench of take-away food was horrible, our room, 39 was at the back overlooking the...

Very friendly, independent hotel. Great for a night or two when on business in the area. Parking was in the public (but free) car park a couple of minutes' walk away. Check-in was easy and my receipt was available already printed for me when I arrived. A bit of a trek up flights of stairs and along narrow corridors which... More

Stayed here for just 1 night whilst on a family visit. Hotel rooms very good size with T.V., Hairdryer, tea coffee making facilities, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and most importantly not only were the rooms (as well as all other areas of the hotel) spotless but the bed was extremely comfortable so a good nights sleep was ensured....

As most of the other place's we tried we full we came here and we were pleased, The parking is a bit off putting as you can not park at the hotel, there is a sort of drop of point and then you can park free of charge by the police station, which is a short walk away, The Hotel... More

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
