As other reviews mention the hotel itself is wonderful. It is beautifully kept, the grounds are immaculate, the rooms cleans and stylish. However it lacks soul! Staff are lack lustre and miss opportunities to make the visit amazing. I stayed two nights and although staff were pleasant I didn't feel the wow of a warm welcome.
Food was ok but nothing the rave about.
Worth taking a run whilst there. They have marked out a good route - but be warned, it is cross country and when I ran it, quite overgrown in places. Be careful out there!
- 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
