My disabled daughter and I went today for the first time. What a lovely place! The staff couldn’t have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. We were served by a very pleasant guy called Kieran More...

I'm staying in a superior suite and it's brilliant. You basically have your own flat, well presented and well maintained.

Separate living, bathing and sleeping rooms with your own balcony.

Staff are friendly and helpful.

Food is competitive with its pricing but the bar is just slightly over the odds. Although there won't be any Michelin stars awarded the kitchen supplied a tasty, well presented dinner. They also have buffet nights that could be worth a look if you'd like to eat decently prepared food until you pop.

Free parking and good free WiFi are winners too. I'll be staying again.

Nice room , clean & tidy (vanity light in bathroom wasn't working) plus a very comfortable bed.
Mostly Good staff & food although delays for some of our group's evening meals (some of us had nearly finished before others had started) marred it. Unfortunately at breakfast we were told "no vegetarian sausages" & we weren't offered any alternative either so we had a rather sparse plate !
Despite some problems over all we still enjoyed our stay.

Great stay for a small price. Stayed on a Saturday night not recommended if you want sleep as bar turns to a club till 12am. Meal and breakfast was spot on and lovely helpful staff. More...

Lovely venue with fantastic staff. Full English breakfast and great evening food. Serious leak in the room during the night, but Head Receptionist was extremely professional and accommodating in changing us into a different room and refunding costs. Great bar area. Despite the one off maintenance issue, we would definitely recommend. More...

Had my husband's 65th party there. Amazing service from start to finish. They even postponed it for me because of the bad weather we had and went out of their way to reorganize for the following week. Food was also very good and the accommodation was excellent. Can't find fault! More...

Generally very good, some staff could smile more and be more attentive but bar staff were excellent. Comfortable seating and relaxing atmosphere. Will visit again.

I visited The Oaklands as a potential wedding venue. Lovely place, lots of space and the venue looked really good. We also got to view one of the bedrooms, which was also amazing

Staff extremely friendly, nothing too much trouble, food fantastic. We stayed on a deal booked last November. It included afternoon tea, and evening meal, bed and breakfast. We upgraded to a suite and it was a great decision. The room was fantastic with plenty of room. We were upstairs and we would choose an upstairs room again for the views. Afternoon tea was fresh and included unlimited tea and coffee which is generally the norm but there are places that charge you extra. Evening meal was beautifully cooked will definitely return. Breakfast also excellent with a lot of choice and not cheap ingredients. Worth every penny. Will definitely be back and can't wait. More...

Stayed on business trip for 3 nights. Room was good. Bar staff and breakfast staff were friendly. Evening team should try and be as friendly. Clean, enjoyable place and really nice outdoor area too. I will definitely stay here next time I'm in Norwich. Hopefully be able to give 5 * after that. More...

Would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at the oaklands for making our wedding reception a truly special occasion. We could not of been happier with how the day/evening went & the food was fantastic. The set up of the room was stunning & my new wife was stunned as well as our guests of how beautiful it was. Thank you so much!! Very kind gesture also with the flowers to my wife, very thoughtful :-) More...

The mid week carvery here is a very good standard and sensibly priced.

The staff are very nice here.

We have stayed here on a weekend too even though we live in Norwich. There was plenty of atmosphere and places to have a drink. The room we stayed in was lovely and very clean. Bathroom was of a very high standard too.

Lovely venue.

Comfortable room and very friendly staff. Didn't check in until 11pm and was made a lovely sandwich due to dinner service being over. Staying again tonight and have time for dinner this time, will update afterwards. More...

Great bar team and management. Friendly and efficient reception staff. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent range of well priced food but is also walking distance to a couple decent pubs also offering food, beer etc on the River Yare for beautiful evenings being entertained by nature watching.

Attended a wedding and stayed here recently, the staff are excellent, friendly and approachable, the venue is lovely great place to sit and meet people, my only issue was when we stayed we had a child and we required a travel cot. Unfortunately it was not set up correctly upon arrival and took a while to get sorted with what we needed. Minor gripe would still recommend More...

This review is just based on the restaurant.

The decor has been upgraded which is a huge improvement, place looks very smart now.
Food is reasonable at the price with a decent portion size.
Service was very friendly if not a tad slow at the time.
We have been a few times and it is pretty consistent.

Attended a wedding reception here. What a lovely space. Friendly, helpful staff and yummy food. Was nice that the bar, room and outside were all joined so the children could move around freely but still be kept under supervision. Only negative would be that the first two steps down to the garden are not lit up - the rest are, but in the dark they look like a ramp not steps. Would definitely return. More...
