Not quite what we expected.Posted Mar 31, 2017 on Hotels
I booked the premises via the internet on availability and customer reports, then emailed to say that we wanted an early book-in as we are elderly and would be suffering jet lag from a long haul flight. On arrival we found we were placed in an attic room with no lift and had to negotiate two narrow and steep flights of stairs which left us breathless. The owners had to take our cases upstairs for us. The rooms were well appointed, with sloping roof on both sides of the room, after having hit my head on the ceiling several times during visits the the bathroom at night, I question why we should be placed in such a room. We also found that the bed linen consisted of two single bed duvets placed across a double bed and was certainly not conducive to a restful sleep which we needed. An evening suggestion of a local eatery was very good, and the breakfast served the next morning was very good. Did we enjoy our stay, not really, would we stay again, highly unlikely, would we recommend to others, maybe.

Nice hotel, great location for local amenities.Posted Mar 24, 2017
I required a no nonsense place to stay without being ripped off with English speaking staff. They delivered.

Good parking, simple quiet and tidy roomPosted Mar 10, 2017 on Hotels
Overall good experience. As the rest of the reviews would say, the place looks a bit tired and needs a coat of fresh paint and some new furniture. The hosts are lovely, nice and friendly. Parking facilities are really good! One thing that needs updating is the shower.... or maybe they need to have a look at their plumbing. The water pressure was really low and it was quite difficult to have a decent shower. I would probably stay at this place again if I am in the area due to the fact that parking is good, location is good and the price is low. My room was very quiet and that was defiantly a bonus :)

Tired looking B&B, does a great cooked breakfastPosted Nov 18, 2016 on Hotels
Bed was comfy and an excellent cooked breakfast, top notch. Room decoration very tired and run down, limited parking available also. Not overly cheap but very handy for Heathrow and surrounding area.

Excellent stay night before flightPosted Oct 28, 2016
Pros: During our trip to UK and EU we stayed in several B&B's and the Oakwood was by far the most pleasant. Our room was large by UK standards and very clean and modern. The Oakwood is located very close to Heathrow airport which was a quick and cheap taxi ride the next morning (12 pounds). There are also a number of small local restaurants and pubs in walking distance. The staff were very polite, courteous and accommodating and even helped us to take our suitcases up to the 3rd floor. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. You can't go wrong staying here!
Cons: We had no complaints as everything was better than expected.
