Glorious medieval castle-type hotel. We had a river facing room with stunning views of the surrounding gardens and gothic castle with it's fancy turrets and gargoyles! We were greeted with a glass of champers, and found another bottle of fizz and complimentary chocolate in our room with a lovely card for our wedding anniversary we were celebrating.
There was a saxophonist playing on our first evening so we had a meal on the terrace. The food was okay but very expensive. However this was outshone by the superb ambience and the attentive staff.
Bike hire was free, super bikes and but for the weather I am sure we would have had lovely cycle along the riverside. However on the Saturday rain stopped play so we had a lovely day shopping and sightseeing in Windsor old town centre.
There was a wedding taking place at the Oakley Court on the Saturday so it was all happening in and around the hotel during the Saturday afternoon, but lovely to watch all the people in their finery having such a super day.
The breakfasts were first class, with fresh poached eggs which were hot and runny, and everything else you needed for a full fry up, including cereals, cakes, fruit and so forth. Excellent breakfast.
There was in indoor leisure facility and we had a fab afternoon swim/steam/jacuzzi which was just what the doctor ordered on a rainy afternoon.
All in all I cannot fault the Oakley Court. Nothing was too much trouble for it's wonderful host of staff, very helpful in reception and helping us with our cases etc, they are a credit to the hotel. We will definately be returning.
