Positive Reviews

Informative and friendly staff

There have been so many compliments for the wonderful staff at Oakfold House, who will go out of their way to make sure your stay is nothing short of fantastic. Towels are changed every day, and rooms are spotlessly cleaned. Reception staff are incredibly informative, and are well versed on the local attractions nearby.

Elegance in an en suite

Many guests spent way too much time in the beautifully appointed bathrooms, where marble floors and luxurious vanities were there to spoil every visitor. The bathrooms were spacious and elegant, while the shower provided piping hot water without the varying pressure.

Easy access to town

You will be able to walk into town quite easily from Oakfold House Hotel where there are a variety of fine dining establishments and cafes. You will even find unique gift shops and plenty of entertainment too.

Negative Reviews

One or two mattress issues

Most of the rooms at this hotel have brand new mattresses, however one or two rooms are still waiting for the new stock to arrive. Hopefully you will be able to book the room with the new bedding.
