Excellent stay at the Oaksmere
Had a fantastic 2 nights at The Oaksmere. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food at the restaurant and really enjoyed the grounds and the play area with our 2 year old. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again!

Liked: Staff & service
The Oaksmere is set within a lovely setting and we enjoyed walking in the grounds, around the kitchen garden, pond and more. The building is full of character with stylish modern additions. Staff overall were very friendly and made up for a disappointing start when we arrived at 9pm and had to chase around to find someone to check us in as no-one was at reception.

Erratic service ...
We stayed for 2 nights and overall had a good stay. Our main criticism is that the service was erratic. No towels in our room when we arrived and both days we pre-booked the restaurant, only to find that our bookings hadn't been recorded. We had to wait over an hour for our meal the first night as well. The second morning we couldn't have a cooked breakfast because of a power cut in the area (which obviously the hotel couldn't do anything about). Having said that, the food is very good and the beds are very comfortable.
