HELLO!

Pleased to learn you are so happy with
us at the Oak Lea.

That is a great compliment, a Scotsman liking
the porridge!

I also agree with your comments on Blackpool.
It is improving. There has been big investments in town.

Thanks again, look forward to seeing you again.

Regards, Andrew and everyone at the Oak Lea Hotel

Recently returned from our 4th stay at the Oak Lea. As ever everything was spot on. From the warm welcome on arrival, to the hugs on departure. The rooms are a good size and spotlessly clean. The well stocked beverage tray is well needed after a long day or late night!!! The food is lovely. Good selection for breakfast which really sets you up for the day. Dinner is beautiful, all freshly cooked, with any special requirements catered for. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, they all work so hard to help everyone enjoy their time here. Thank you for another brilliant weekend. See you all again same time next year.

Thanks yet again to all of the staff at the oak lea for making it another memorable week at Blackpool,John,Mary,and Mamie,(Sandra),this is our third year staying at the oak lea and all of our group new members and old feel that the staff are more like family than staff,fantastic weight loss by the way Andrew ,keep up the good work.Food as usual was excellent,especially the breakfast,well done James the chef,you need a pay rise,rooms always clean,can't find fault anywhere.Entertainment on two nights was brilliant,john needs to slow down on the sambuca,and it's only half past nine Sandra you don't need to leave yet! Mary,words can't describe the effort you put in,it is obvious to all of our group that ALL of the staff put in 110% and that they ALL take great pride in making sure that people enjoy themselves?See you all in Sept 2014,luv Jules ,Steve ,Matron and the gang.

stayed at The Oak Lea from Sunday to Friday. John is a fantastic host, food was excellent, staff friendly and welcoming. Will be going again next year. We almost took over hotel as there were 35 of us! Nothing was too much trouble, my son is a really fussy eater and John made sure he had a meal that he liked every day, even though it wasn't on the planned menu! would recommend this hotel.

Hello Girls!

Thank you so much for your
lovely review, it is appreciated!

I am really pleased you were happy
with all parts of the Hotel, with great comments
on food, entertainment, rooms and staff!

I do agree about your driver, he was one of
the most difficult drivers we have worked with, in
almost 30 years doing this job!

Hope to see you all again.

Thanks again, and kind Regards, from us all at the Oak Lea Hotel
