“a belter of a B & B”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

if you were driving blind into bridlington looking for a b and b you may not pick out the oakwell over other establishments but having stayed there recently for 3 nights i wouldnt stay anywhere else. warm friendly welcome from carol and alec you really felt like you were guests in their home.
our room was immaculately clean, comfy beds and a small but really nice en-suite.
breakfast was fantastic you could pick whatever you liked from cereal to full english which included everything from a choice of cooked eggs to black pudding and vegetarian options.
it has to be one of the best breakfasts ive eaten not a drop of grease anywhere and such a huge plateful i requested less the day after as i couldnt eat it all!
this guest house is run by honest hard working good people who take pride in their job. i will definitely be returning.

We stayed one night in a family room. The hosts were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. The room was spotless and the beds were really comfy. The Oakwell is in a great location, end of the road and youre at the beach and Harbour. Parking permits are issued when you check in, so it saves the hassle of driving around looking for somewhere to park. I will definately recommend to family & friends. Thank you.

Stayed here 20/7/2012 as a single traveller. A warm welcome from a lovely couple Alec and Carol.The premises are spotless and room very comfortable. Situated in a quiet location only a few minutes walk to the promenade, Spa Theatre, harbour and town. The breakfast was excellent and a vegetarian alternative is available. There are local bars within easy walking distance but like all Bridlington pubs they tend to be noisy and bad language is prevalent
Not negatives but purely by way of comment:-
1. A bar is advertised but in fact this comprises a few bottles in an alcove under the stairs.
2. The lounge is that of the owners which they share with the company of their well behaved dog.
3. The Breakfast Room is small and contains only 4 tables and if it was not for the hostess requesting guests to wait a while you could find yourself table sharing.
Overall very good and the hosts must be proud of the excellent reviews,5/5 under the Food Standard Agency Scheme and a Certificate of excellence awarded by Trip Advisor.
The hosts are very caring and will do all in their power to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Thanks you two,
Regards,
Kevin from Alfreton

Thank you Kevin for your review, we were pleased that you enjoyed your stay, as to your comments,
1)The bar is small but as you saw their isn't anyroom for it any place else, 99 per cent
of our guests go out, only a hand full with small children use it.
2) Our dog as you say is very well behaved, we always ask our guests if they are ok with dogs, if not then he is put out the back,bear in mind he is old and part of the family he is 13 1/2, he is only out when we are in the lounge.
3) We do breakfast between 8-9am so hopefully people will stagger it, but 9 times out10 they all come down at 8.30. I cook the breakfast fresh so it takes a bit longer, I find people are fine with this, as I will not have it sat in the oven for hrs.
We hope this does not put you off coming again, thank you again

We could not have wished for two better hosts than Alec and Carole - they could not have accommodated myself, my wife and our two little babies anymore. Extremely helpful that we could stay for the one night as a little family trip away. Extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay it was excellent value for money and an absolute little gem of a B & B. The room was very spacious and immaculate with our every need catered for. The location was fantastic and just a minute or so from the harbour and town centre. The breakfast was excellent and delicious with a massive choice available. I will definitely recommend the Oakwell Guest House to anyone that is planning on visiting Bridlington - lovely, pleasant and relaxing stay.
