“Friendly and very nice hotel”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

We went with our two small kids and found the hotel very comfortable. The rooms were very clean. Toiletries and towels in good supply. Cute little cupboard and chest of drawers to store things. Nice shower in a well equipped bathroom (small but very clean). The staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was good and service very quick. Overall a very pleasant stay for our family. We would recommend the hotel highly and wonder why it is only a 2 star.

Room Tip: We had the back rooms. No views but quiet.

The rooms were fine - we stayed once in June where I had a very small room, then again in July where I had a much larger nicer room. Both visits the room was very hot - the first stay they provided us with a fan, which proceeded to blow the hot air around the room! The room overlooked a very loud extraction unit outside, so I couldn't have the window open. The second visit i actually had air con in my room which was great - i still overlooked the extraction unit but it wasn't an issue as i had the a/c. The staff were very helpful on our second visit to ensure that we weren't in the same rooms as our previous visit.

The hotel restaurant was fine - the food was fairly average in the bar, but we enjoyed a couple of nice meals in the Atlantis restaurant. Our favourite haunt was out of the main door and left along the main street to the Belgian Bar - lovely fresh fish - I would recommend the haddock goujons.

We decided to book a hotel last minute for the following evening with our 18 month old daughter. We came across the Oak Hotel and it looked perfect right on the harbour. When we arrived the receptionist was extremely friendly and professional and explained everything to us. I was a little disappointed that there was no lift as we had a buggie and lots to go with it. The room was lovely and spacious and very clean. Every member of staff that we came across on our brief visit was lovely and helpful. We had breakfast the next morning and again superb staff and a very nice breakfast. We will be returning again to this very well run hotel.

Room Tip: request the back of the hotel for sleep

Friendly staff, nice and clean. We had soooo many stairs to climb it was unbelievable and we got lost on the way to the room!

We only stayed one night and didnt crawl in until around 4:30am! We were at the back of the hotel with a horrible view but it was quiet.

Room Tip: Peace = no view. View = no peace!

Thank you for your comment above. We are pleased that you found all staff friendly. We are very fortunate to have a good location, but due the location we also encounter noise in the late evenings. We do inform all guests at the time of booking over the phone, that sea views and standards can be affected.

We hope to welcome you back again soon.

This hotel is fairly typical of a tired English seaside hotel. The location is good in that it is directly opposite the harbour, but the road is lined with bars and restaurants, and certainly on the warm Saturday night we were there, they were crowded and open until 4.30 in the morning.

If you must stay here pay extra to get one of the rooms without a view at the back or you'll get no sleep. The rooms are small with standard double beds and cramped bathrooms with the usual mould around the bath. The hotel is not suitable for those who cannot walk well - there are a lot of stairs.

Breakfast was average, a small selection of cereals and juice. The cooked breakfast was not especially generous - one Radner of bacon, a sausage, half tomato, one egg and one slice of toast.

Overall the hotel is very average. I would not stay there again.

Thank you for your feedback above. I have since spoke to the head chef of our kitchen who is looking into your breakfast comment, all full English’s should be served with, one piece of bacon, one sausage, an egg, half tomato, beans, mushrooms and toast. That is our standard breakfast. Guests are more than welcome to add extras to the breakfast being reasonable & items on the menu.

With regards to the mould around the bath, I would very much appreciate if you could contact me direct at the hotel to confirm what room type you stayed in. We have had a look at the bathrooms and can agree some rooms do require some attention with silicone that consequently we are dealing with.

Once again thank you for your feedback, without this we would not be able to continue to improve our standards.

Kindest Regards

Stayed here for two weeks in March on a business trip. The receptionist was really really nice! Breakfast is good too! I did not stay here for the weekend as I went to London so did not experience the loud weekend night life I've heard off. I would definitely stay here again. With a little more TLC this woull be an excellent hotel.
