Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I was looking forward to visiting my home city on a work trip, the accommodation was booked through an agency, sadly I was booked into a tiny room in the top of the hotel with only a skylight. No fault of the hotel but I was not going to spend any time in that room. The staff were awesome, Annie was brilliant. The breakfast which I had every day was one of the best I've had. A popular spot for weddings, other than the small room, it was a lovely place, the apartment blocks looked amazing.

We were included in a party of 13 on Monday evening for a 70th birthday party. Ruby was our waitress and was absolutely excellent, she was serving us all on her own and we could not fault her, for the service and making sure everybody was happy. Mackenzie was also very good on the bar.

Just returned from a short stay at the Oaklands hotel, from start to finish we couldn’t fault it. The room was perfect for us, the staff were welcoming and always available to help us when needed, nice selection of drinks and the food was delicious too.

I hired one of there function rooms last Saturday 30th March. It was a drag entertainment evening raising money for a cancer hospice called pbl. The night was in memory of my late mother that passed away from cancer. The night was a total nightmare. The room floor was dirty and grubby. Glasses at the bar wasn’t clean. There was 60 people that paid good money to help us raise money. A drag show is loud funny and good old entertainment. We had only been starting the night, with in the first 3 minutes a manager stormed into the room and told us turn your music down or we would be kicked out. The music was not even at 1/4 of what it could be. There was a wedding reception going on the other side of the hotel and we could hear it clear from ours. They where not told to turn there’s down !!! I approached the manager and got the worst homophobia I have ever experienced. He threatened to kick us out even though it was a charity event. Guests from the wedding party called us all horrible names and us drag queens didn’t feel safe or comfortable performing at this event. We got told to wind our event down and finish. Tbh I couldn’t wait to get out of that rubbish place. I will never set foot in that place again and is drag queens will team together and never perform again there. Avoid avoid avoid

Stayed here after a wedding. Rooms very tired looking, bulbs missing from bedroom and bathroom lights. Quilt very lumpy and heavy and pillows not good. Needs major TLC. TV wouldn’t stay on. O the plus side, Staff very friendly and food good. Would definitely recommend the breakfast.
