What a truly amazing hotel. I have stayed in many 4 / 5 Star hotels and this one deserves to be moved up from a 4 to a 5 star hotel. The staff are the most friendliest and helpful I have ever met at a hotel. We stayed for 3 nights in the Courtyard Suite which has been beautifully laid out and fitted with a luxurious bathroom, drawing room, and a mezzanine level bedroom with separate sitting area. There are two flat screen tv's both with blu ray players and media hubs. The lighting was also very ambient with electronic dimmer switches. Air conditioning worked a treat. Nice little touches were having fresh biscuits, not the usual cheap ones in a packet, a fresh fruit bowl and also fresh milk! The house keeping staff were also very attentive and worked very hard to ensure our stay was very pleasant. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order not buffet. They would even cook something that wasn't on the menu. From a previous review I noted the comment about yoghurt and fresh fruits not being there, these were available on request. The grounds are well landscaped and with the bedrooms being in an old stable block next to the main house it meant you explore some of it whilst walking down for breakfast. a golf umbrella was provided for if it rained - which it did! All in all I have not a single bad word to say about this hotel, I will certainly be returning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1795, Oakley Hall has a distinguished and fascinating past. The author Jane Austen was a friend of the Bramston family – the then owners – she was a frequent visitor to Oakley Hall and it is mentioned fondly in Austen’s letters to her sister Cassandra. A later owner, William Beach, added a second storey to the house, so creating the grand and impressive building that 21st century visitors can still enjoy. He also employed landscape gardener and architect Edward Milner to design Oakley Hall’s gardens. In 2014, a major restoration project saw Oakley Hall Hotel returned to its full glory, ensuring that visitors will continue to fall in love with Oakley Hall’s Georgian splendour and charm for many years to come. With 50 beautiful bedrooms, suites and even a delightful Garden Cottage from which to choose, guests can indulge in a luxurious stay, enjoy a relaxing drink in the 1795 Bar & Lounge and a fine dining experience in the award-winning 2 AA Rosette Glasshouse Restaurant. Outside there are acres and acres of stunning grounds to explore. From a gentle walk to an early morning run or an afternoon of clay pigeon shooting, there are plenty of things to do. ... more less
