Stayed at the Oakthorpe Hotel for one night on the 2nd December. Warm and friendly welcome from the minute we arrived. Room was clean and comfortable with a HUGE bed, had the best nights sleep (although this may have been more to do with the copious amounts of wine drunk in the hotel bar). We didn't eat in the restaurant of the evening but have heard excellent reviews about the food, and the food served to other guests whilst we were there looked fabulous. Parking is a definite bonus.
Our stay was made all the better by the excellent, helpful and friendly staff. Spent a fun few hours in the bar with Jacob & Jeff (and another lady member of staff whose name I can't remember).....what a lovely bunch of people, as were the locals who popped in for drinks and the other guests in the hotel.
Our stay included breakfast which was plentiful and the service excellent.
The only issue for me was the shower situation in the bathroom. The "shower" facilities are a rubber shower nozzle which attaches to the bathtaps, although no shower curtain. This wasn't a problem for us as we were only there the one night but may be an issue for guests staying for a longer period.
