Went to the Carvery today, good wholesome English grub. For three meals , two with dessert under £19. Stayed at this hotel a year ago in a single room - which wasnt a great expeience,especially as they had a wedding reception.

Room Tip: On my reservation last year, do not book a single room, it was dire.

Well placed for the business that I was visiting. Hotel was clean & staff friendly. With a little more attention to detail on maintenance issues, this would have been a 5 star review. Items only minor, generally in public, high thoroughfare places but if attended too would "finish the job". Only eat breakfast in the hotel but food was well cooked, plentiful with a good range to suit all tastes. A few pub/restaurants on Yarmouth Road for a walk out & evening meal.

This hotel was a good base for exploring the local area. We enjoyed the breakfast and used the bar the service was okay, relaxed atmosphere. Lovely gardens and veranda. However, on our arrival there was a function that took over most of the hotel so retreated to our room. The room was very warm but clean with toiletries provided(no hairdryer, but reception provided one when requested.) The stair carpet looked worn in places. The lodges looked lovely overlooking the outdoor swimming pool that was not in use during my stay. There was some noise in our roon due to the driveway of the hotel .

Room Tip: Our room was over the kitchen near the entrance to the carpark so if the window was open noise could...

Booked my wedding here which was the best package they had, table place settings wrong, canapés weren't handed out but staff were eating them behind the bar, not enough welcome drinks to go around, drinks during wedding breakfast were slow, food took so long to come out that we had to miss the cheese and biscuits until the evening. Also my guests had to walk past the middle room were locals were eating to get to our room so no privacy for them or us. The log cabin we had had faulty shower which didn't drain and milk for the coffee was off. Have written twice to complain never had a response or any compensation!! Had our one year anniversary meal here which was part of cost and there was a wedding party going through the middle room agin that we were in so we had Jo privacy. Though my husband and I had a lovely day as we got married it wasn't what we had paid for.

The Oaklands advertises wedding packages quite widely, and what it does , it does well. My brother recently held his wedding here, and we were pleasantly surprised. The service itself was very nice, well thought out words and professional without being starchy. The food for the reception was extremely good, no faults at all and the profiteroles were some of the best we have ever had. Our room was on the second floor, nicely decorated and very clean, what more could you ask for.
