Visited here several times, most recently a couple of months ago. Enjoyed a family meal here. Lovely quality food and attentive staff. Also had a light lunch and sat outside, abundant outside seating area over looking lake with ducks and large fish who are keen to be fed! Will definitely be visiting again. Have not stayed in rooms, so unable... More

Room was clean and well sized. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Loved that we could sit out on the terrace looking over the lake! Breakfast is not included, but is well worth paying the extra money!

We ate in the bar area,for which you just select the table you'd like then order at the bar when ready. Inside is a little dark with all the dark wood so would suggest sitting in the area overlooking the water. There are also tables outside. The food was surprisingly good. Actually the best chunky chips I've had in a... More

Experienced a most enjoyable lunch with the SMBP 44 Pensioners Club today 22July. 74 members and guests visited the Oysterfleet. Food and service 1st class, smiling staff which made you welcome. This is an annual event but delighted to say 50% increase in attendance. Sun was shining and the view over the lake ideal for pre lunch drinks.

We stayed the night last Thursday as we were visitng my elderly mother in the area. It was a very good place to stay - for a comfotable, quiet and easy stop-over. The room was large, clean, well stocked with soap etc, tea and coffee and a TV. This is a very basic type of hotel but has everything you... More

Beautiful new restaurant overlooking the lake. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. We requested a table that wasn't set and the staff insisted that we sat were we wanted to and set the table for us. Both the food and the service was exceptional. Starters were all fresh and tasty. Mains were Pork Medallions, Cannelloni, Skate and my Fillet Steak... More

Whilst the food is not of the best quality, it is pretty good for bar food, it is competitively priced and the portions are very generous. Staff are also extremely friendly and helpful.
