Does Oakthwaite House have a guest lounge?

We do not have a guest lounge. There are numerous pubs and restaurants in the town, only a 5 minute walk, for our guests to socialize in.

What time is check in / check out / housekeeping?

Check in is from 5:00 pm till 7:00 pm (1700 hrs till 1900 hrs).

Please see T&Cs for information regarding ‘early check in’ requests.

Being a family run guesthouse we strongly urge advance notice for arrival after 7:00 pm (1900 hrs), and arrival after 9:00 pm (2100 hrs) is by strict prior arrangement only, at least a week in advance, unless circumstances beyond one’s control dictate otherwise.  Please note however that ‘check-ins’ after 10:00pm (2200hrs) are not possible (even in the event you are running late), as this we have found detrimentally disrupts other guests that maybe sleeping.

Check out is by 10.30 am (1030 hrs) on the day of departure.

We kindly require guests to vacate their room between 10:30 am and 1:30 pm (1030 hrs and 1330 hrs) to allow for housekeeping.

What time is breakfast served?

We serve breakfast from 08.15 am to 09.00 am (0815 hrs to 0900 hrs).
