“Fabulous wedding venue!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We had our wedding reception/celebration at the hotel on the 15th December 2012 and have to say how fantastic the management was of the whole event. Many venues that have the benefit of such a lovely building and setting often rely on this to carry their product but the difference we felt with the Oakley Court Hotel was how fantastic the staff and food were. Everyone that we had contact with on the day prior right up to the day after the function was very polite and professional but most of all was warm and welcoming with nothing being too much trouble to deal with. In particular, at the function itself, everyone from the management team to the servers and bar staff helped make the atmosphere perfect for our celebration. Additionally and of vital impartance the standard of the food was nothing short of excellent. We have attended many large functions and cannot recall having so many guests specifically commenting on the very high quality of the meals from starter through to the deserts. Not only this but the food was delivered efficiently to the whole room with all tables being served at practically the same time which is no small feat for a large function, and the waiter service was highly attentive with glasses never seeming to reach empty at any point. With regards to the rooms many of our guests commented on the good quality of the rooms and the suite we had for ourselves was fabulous. So 10 out of 10 to Oakley Court and a huge THANK YOU all its staff for helping to make our celebration as perfect as it was, and for creating exactly the atmosphere that we had hoped to achieve. We'll be back for a visit soon! Ian and Rachel

Stayed here for 2 nights for a joint Christmas/Birthday celebration. Arrived in 4 inches of snow! The hotel and grounds looked stunning covered in white. Our room was much bigger than expected with big bed and bathroom. The staff were very welcoming, especially the bar staff- we had 2 lunches there and the service was excellent. Had one evening meal and food again was lovely and serving staff were very attentive but not intrusive. Prices for food and drink are pricey but we didn't mind as the setting and ambience were second to none- we were very sad to leave. Would definitely come back again. Thank you Oakley Court for an amazing weekend :)

We got married at this hotel in December 2012 - and I can truly say it was perfect...magical even! The venue was stunning, the food was delicious, the rooms very comfortable - but most importantly the staff there were wonderful (Joe and Edward) - their level of service was second to none! We had about 130-140 guests (the majority stayed in the hotel) and everyone had nothing but positive things to say about their whole experience - and my husband and I couldn't agree more - we would highly recommend both getting married and staying at this hotel. Thank you to all the staff at Oakley Court!

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite!!

Have had the privilege of staying at this Hotel twice in two years, and both times I have been extremely pleased !

The property itself is the style of a large Country residence which exudes warmth and character .

Staff are always extremely polite and helpful and Breakfast offers a good selection.

Well situated and a lovely boat ride away from Windsor Races.

My parents, wife and I stayed at Oakley Court for eight days over this New Year past and had simply a lovely time. We found the facility well kept and the holiday decor tasteful and warm. We were treated very well indeed by the front desk staff (particularly Alistair). The concierge service was excellent. We required several rather demanding tasks of Neil Harley and J.J., which they met with courtesy, efficiency, and aplomb. Chris Carey was endlessly helpful and charismatic and set us onto a number of gastro pubs and restaurants that we found very much to our liking indeed.

Despite the flooding and rather dismal rains that crowded in, we were quite satisfied with our experience at Oakley Court.

If there was a bit of a hiccough in the experience, it would be the dining room staff (particularly at breakfast). In eight mornings they only once got 'three coffees and one tea' right and often seemed harried and impatient. During the holidays, when the hot breakfast was served buffet style, the breakfast could not be faulted. After the new year, however, when one was required to order a hot breakfast, we were often left to wait before we could order and wait again before the food was (at last) delivered, and after two mornings of suffering through cold eggs and withered sausage we gave up entirely and opted reluctantly for the cold breakfast buffet.

But that was the only dark spot in an otherwise superior stay. Tina in the bar was unfailingly gracious and pert as was the dark-haired young woman with the Glaswegian accent and the tall young man who managed (on special request) to whip up superior Brandy Alexanders made with ice cream. I only wish I had noted their names, for they were certainly part of what proved a most enjoyable eight days.

We will certainly be returning to enjoy the Oakley Court in the years to come, such was the pleasure of our stay.

Room Tip: While the rooms in the main building seemed quite luxurious, we stayed in one of the wings and were...

We stayed here New Years Eve and New Years Day and enjoyed the 5 course Gala ball. The room we had was fantastic, services was unquestionable, food was superb, I have taken the time to consider this reviw as surely there must have been something I disliked, but I can truly say this has to be one of the top ranking hotels in the UK.

Room Tip: Always try and book a river view, you get the view of the Thames and all the grounds

We went on a babymoon to this hotel taking our 2year old with us and I was slightly worried as to how we would get on, I had no need to worry. The room was huge with plenty of room for a travel cot and meant he still had space to play, the staff were fantastic and really patience with us and took notice always of our little one, nothing was too much trouble. The grounds stunning, the swimming pool fantastic which was a fav for our son, lots to do nearby Windsor Castle, Odds Farm and Chessington all of which we fitted in with our stay to make it a fantastic few days, not to mention the breakfast with tons of choice. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are going away with children, they made our stay a delight and we will almost certainly be returning as soon as we can. A massive thank you again to all the staff :)
