I’ve never done this before but here we go, I recently stayed at the best western Oakland’s hotel in Norwich City few weeks ago and all me and my wife can say is praise for the hotel and staff.
After having a little bit of trouble finding the place (I was the navigator) we were greeted by a very pleasant receptionist who directed us to our room, the “room” being essentially a nice one bed flat, which was clean and tidy. Having gotten back from our daughters baby shower, we decided to roam into the bar, for some drinks and dinner. Aside from the lovely atmosphere and slight bustle (it was quite busy), we were warmly welcomed by a young gent called Jack. After we got some drinks and my wife did her swooning, we decided to go into the restaurant and have dinner. I had the a burger and Kathy had the salmon, it took about 20/30 minutes and was OK, nothing special but was fine. The waitress we had was polite and hardworking so we were more than happy with the service we received.
After dinner my wife went back to the room and I went back into the bar to have one more drink before going back to the room. Fortunately, I didn’t make it back to the room for another 2.5 hours!! I’m entirely sure I would have gone back sooner if it wasn’t for Jack!! He is such a credit to the place with his charm and banter, we talked about everything from whiskey to football to current affairs. Quite frankly, he’s the best bartender I’ve ever seen in my life and, after several pints, a few perfect old fashions and a scotch tour (there’s literally nothing that man doesn’t know); we, begrudgingly, parted ways for me to return to the room.
After a telling off from my missus, we relaxed in front of the rather large TV and shortly went to sleep. There was very little noise, and the bed was extremely comfy. We both showered in a very modern and stylish bathroom and headed into the restaurant for breakfast. I had a huge fry up and my wife had a croissant, both of which were tasty, with plenty of coffee to wash it down thanks to Jo. We checked out with ease and headed home with nothing but good things to say about the Best Western Plus Oakland’s Hotel. less
