“Lovely B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2008

We stayed at Oaklands for 3 nights and it was very comfortable, the house is beautiful with antique furniture and large rooms, our bedroom was at the back of the house and very spacious, the ensuite was small but it did the trick.

There was a TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The bed was very comfortable.

Andrew and Helen were very friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was lovely and the dining room is really special.

The only gripe we had was that the plumbing was noisy, it was loud enough to wake us up but luckily enough it only occurred around the time we should have been getting up anyway!

All in all it is a lovely B&B and I would recommend it as a good base for exploring around this area.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2007

The whole experience oozed quality. A solid sandstone double fronted villa with tasteful decor and quality furnishings and fittings. Immaculate throughout. Very friendly welcome. My 8 year old son and I had a fresh, bright twin room with spacious en-suite facilities. Breakfast was served around a large oval rich wooden table. There was the usual range of cereals and grapefruit but the mixed fresh stawberries and raspberries were a real treat. My son enjoyed his traditional cooked breakfast, but I opted for the smoked salmon and scrambled egg which was perfectly cooked. I was only disappointed that we could not stay for longer than the 1 night we had booked. Will definately go back. Does not accept credit cards. Recommend a visit to The Falkirk Wheel while in the area - it is fascinating.
