We always check trip adviser prior to booking hotels, and take little notice of some of the rather picky reviews, although we would also report concerns. This week we stayed at Smokies (Oldham) on a family visit to the town. We found the staff very pleasant and the twin bedded room to a good standard. The breakfast was excellent. We... More

Staff seemed pleasant & helpful at reception, not the brightest of bunch, the bar seemed ok, staff again seemed "passable" The bedrooms were all clean, even though I had to swap rooms, and my 2 colleagues both had to complain about their rooms, Downside of the bar was not being shown a wine list & age of wines and worse,...

Superb hotel. Must go towards the winters. You get to enjoy the countryside view. In the night you can either relax in your room or enjoy in the pub downstairs. Small shops are quite nearby. The quality of food is great too.

The staff were friendly and helpful and could not enough for us, the room was clean and functional, as were all the hotels facilities.
