We stayed here our first two nights in England after flying in to Heathrow around 9:30pm. It was about a 20 pound taxi ride from the airport, this was perhaps more than average as our driver had no idea where to go.
When we got to Oakwood there was no staff there so no one answered the door. Our phones weren't working so we trekked next door to the pub to borrow theirs, the staff were not too impressed by this and we got the impression it was a regular occurrence for them. We got onto the owner of Oakwood who explained she had left a message for us on our phones - which weren't working. She gave us instructions to get in and all was good.
Breakfast was lovely - a great selection of cereals and made to order English Breakfast, yum yum! The staff were friendly and helped us with directions to the train station, which is a very easy walk, maybe 5 minutes. We were very impressed the room had a fridge, as we soon learned this is not common in the UK.
Overall Oakwood was a clean and convenient location for us to stay and the staff were incredibly friendly and I would recommend this B&B to anyone after a comfortable place to stay that is convenient to Heathrow and easy to get to central London.
