Rarely does a UK hotel exceed my expectations. the Oakley Court is rare indeed. My wife and I booked a last minute stay here through Booking.com for £171 for one night in a river-view room before we flew from Heathrow.
The exterior of the hotel is a truly remarkable piece of architecture and the grounds are beautiful. The interior of the hotel is equally grand.
Reception service was welcoming, friendly and efficient. Our room (222) was in the West Wing looking down the Thames. The room is very spacious and includes all the usual amenities plus a trouser press (a rare things these days). The king bed was very comfortable.
Our bathroom was spacious and had a lovely deep tub/shower. The bathroom includes a Bidet.
Take time to stroll down the bank of the Thames and soak in the natural beauty of the grounds and the terrific sculptures made from tree branches.
Breakfast was good though the croissants were tiny (I would have preferred full-size fresh croissants at this price).
Dinner costs around £30 per head ... We opted to drive into Windsor for dinner at The Hungry Eye (recommended).
If you have more than one night there are plenty of things to do at this hotel.
