My Wife and I were travelling back from Aberystwyth on Friday 2nd January, and we decided to call at the Oakeley for lunch. We arrived at 13.30, and went into the bar, were we found a nice table. I was about to order drinks, and food, and was quite rudely told that the kitchen had closed at 13.30 LUNCH TIME... More

The meal was plentiful and delicious ,the room warm and spacious. Some of the single men slept in a cottage it was very smart and comfy. The couples had lovely rooms in the... More

We hadn't booked but as soon as we turned up we were welcomed and a room was found for us straight away. Room 14 is a large bay windowed room on the front of the hotel and next to the road, but we didn't hear the traffic. The room was rather cold when we arrived but after 15 mins. of... More

A nice, quaint hotel, with an imposing façade. Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, and a good breakfast. Don't expect hot water though - as this doesn't happen until magically 2 minutes after you complain. You are told to "Let it run!" (don't these people pay water rates??????) So you let it run. You might leave it running for hours........ More

We had pre-ordered lunch but, even so, I thought the friendly staff coped extremely well with serving both food and drinks to 24 of us who had only a little over an hour to spend on the meal. The food was well-presented, accompanied by delicious 'extras' and I didn't hear a single complaint about the quality from any one of... More

We went for an evening meal last night, the plates were cold and the portions were small! Not worth £35 . Even though we are local , we shall not return!The prices have gone up and the portions reduced.

We came here quite a few times during our week camping in Wales. We ate here twice and both times the food was lovely and the price was brilliant. We only had pudding once though as compared to the main it was a bit of a let down, my husband had a banoffee sundae but couldn't eat it all as... More

We only ate here so I cannot comment on the hotel, only the food in the restaurant. The Hotel looks quite impressive from the outside and so we thought that it would be a good choice for a Sunday evening. Unfortunately we should probably have had the courage of our initial convictions and left shortly after entering. It always reflects... More

Hired the two bigger cottages each sleep 6 for a friends 30th Birthday- we went to Zip world which is about a 10 min drive away. The cottages are lovely; the kitchen is fab as really big and great for entertaining. Clean and spacious really good value for the money!
