“never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

wanted to be in the Headingley area, property was reasonably priced. Was in a single ensuite room. The room was freezing and extremely worn and dated. Room required a good clean as it was tired and dusty 70s style furniture, bathroom was very dark and smelled foisty. Staff just interested in getting your money. Had a really poor night as the heating was off when I got back at 10.30 and stayed off untill 7.50 Sunday morning I was so cold I found it difficult to sleep. Breakfast mostly cold and poor quality, I had much better at Morrison's Asda.I had checked out by 9am, wish I had not bothered staying there and driven home on sat night.

Room Tip: leave well alone!!!!!

Wanted to be near the stadium on this occasion. So oak villa was available. Granted it was cheap but not clean. We had our own bathroom. But the one for everyone else's use was right next to us. Squeaky floorboards we heard everyone going in there. There was dust behind the door, don't know when it was last hoovered! The shower hadnt been cleaned. There was hair on the glass. Hair on the bed and stains on the towels.

We certainly would pay for a taxi from the centre to the stadium if we go back. I couldnt stay here again.

Grubby, tired and dusty. This is not a hotel. Room one of the more expensive en-suites. Mouldy walls inside room, furniture both very worn and cheap and dated (lace doilies to protect melamine?). Plastic ferns and flowers in room. Room wouldn't lock on inside, but the smell would have driven intruders off. Security is a minimum surely? Had to sleep with chair wedged under door handle. Room very cold. No Wi-Fi. Sheets laundered and carpet vacuumed. Nice if frazzled woman running it- seemed to be doing everything. Low quality food at breakfast and if you wanted more toast etc, a surcharge of £4 per person! No real choice (pastries?) and had to ask for marmalade. Breakfast coffee was instant but served in a pot! Had the feeling of a local authority B+B. Laughably bad if it wasn't so unpleasant. Bore no relation to its description, poor and no value for money at all. I'd have been better burning £60, sleeping in the car and getting breakfast at cafe down the road.

We were visiting relatives who live nearby, and were looking for a place with a family room that could sleep 4 but had one double and two singles. This one did. Location is pretty easy to find with a map, has parking, beautiful gardens, great hot breakfast. Room was not en-suite, but bathrooms were plenty in the hallway. It wasn't particularly busy, so we didn't have to worry about bathroom queues. They do NOT supply soap and shampoo, so bring your own. (Or, if they did, it was one of those mini-packets. I mean, two mini-packets for 4 people? Are they mad?) But, for one night, no prob. Decor is, as others have noted, very "twee". Or "quaint" in American terms. Or "old-fashioned" if you're cynical. I found it hilarious. Loved it! Beautiful building. Would I go again? Yep. Next time we visit above mentioned relatives, this one will be high on our list.

Room Tip: Bring your own soap and shampoo.

Stayed here as it's close to Headingley for graduation. I could hear the traffic and celebrating students during the night (but it was graduation week!). It could do with re decoration as it is very dated, but it was ok for what we needed. It was clean however, breakfast was good and the owner was helpful and friendly.

I stayed here for 4 weeks, including weekends, whilst attending a business course. As a single guest, I had a very comfortable cosy room at an excellent rate. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the university and city, across a well maintained parkland, also top bus links into town and also up into the Yorkshire Dales. Also very close to County cricket and rugby, local station only a few yards away, best Fish + Chip shops in Leeds nearby in Headingley, also two local independent cinemas. Beautifully kept gardens and very friendly and attentive proprietors. Would definitely recommend!

We came to my son graduation and stayed at the Oak Villa which is a lovely old building with big car park and garden.
Our room was looking to the garden and it was comfortable with coffee making facilities and new TV. The next morning the breakfast was delicious.
The price is good and we are going to stay again!
