Our review of Oakley Hall Hotel

There are 50 beautiful bedrooms to choose from at Oakley Hall Hotel.  The majority of the Deluxe and Executive bedrooms have the option of a pull out sofa bed, providing comfortable additional sleeping space for up to two children.  Alternatively, book a Courtyard Suite which benefit from accommodation spread across two floors – a main master bedroom upstairs, a separate living space and a double pull out sofa bed on the ground floor.

For a special family treat or for larger groups, consider the unique Garden Cottage nestled in the hotel grounds; this provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to six people.  There are three double bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, dining room and private outdoor terrace.

For an idea of prices, a stay for a family of four during the school holidays in an Executive room starts from £320/night on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis (based on two adults sharing).  Alternatively, a bed and breakfast stay starts from £255/night, where kids 12 years and younger stay for free!


Younger visitors will enjoy the special treats on offer when staying at Oakley Hall – mini bathrobes and slippers, mini toiletries and cookies and milk!

There are also mini Afternoon Teas available in the on-site restaurant.  What a perfect child friendly bribe to ensure best behaviour in the hours beforehand!

The hotel has large attractive grounds and gardens providing plenty of safe open space for little ones to explore and let off steam.

Board games are available to borrow from reception, and each bedroom benefits from a smart screen television perfect for occupying the children during down time.

Family mealtimes are a breeze at Oakley Hall on-site restaurant, with a wide selection of child-friendly meals available at lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.

Or for a real parent friendly treat, why not make use of the hotel’s trusted third party babysitting service?  You’ll find no better way to enjoy a romantic evening meal or a relaxing drink in the bar.

Grown-up friendly activities like clay pigeon shooting and archery are available for an additional fee.

Dogs are able to stay in a number of the Courtyard rooms at Oakley Hall Hotel.


For a luxurious family hotel getaway within easy reach of the New Forest, we think Oakley Hall is well worth a look – especially given under 12s stay free on bed and breakfast breaks!  The optional babysitting for some proper mum and dad ‘me time’ is a really tempting extra too.
