The Oaks Hotel

The BEST WESTERN Oaks is set in a commanding position overlooking stunning gardens and grounds. With views from the front out towards Pendle Hill, guests can relax outside on the terrace and watch the east Lancashire scenery change before their very eyes.

You would be forgiven for thinking that you have arrived at a stately home on approach to this beautiful old building. This imposing hotel was in fact once the private home of a local tea merchant and has retained its original stunning features to give visitors an amazing sense of grandeur and history.

Walking into the main hall which is now the reception area, the dark wood panelling and ornate ceilings are breathtaking. As you approach the stairs the main lobby is flooded with light from the 25ft high stained glass window towering over the original sweeping staircase.

The BEST WESTERN Oaks is set in a commanding position overlooking stunning gardens and grounds. With views from the front out towards Pendle Hill, guests can relax outside on the terrace and watch the east Lancashire scenery change before their very eyes.

While the hotel is set in relaxing grounds and provides a tranquil environment, it is perfectly placed for all your business and leisure needs and conveniently located just minutes off the M65 motorway.

  • 50 bedrooms with FREE Wi-Fi internet access
  • Superb Health Club and Spa
  • Imposing restaurant located within the ‘old house’ offering locally sourced produce
  • Relaxing lounge bar retaining many of the original features including ornate ceiling and floor to ceiling windows.
  • Friendly and attentive long serving staff
  • Extensive grounds and outdoor terraces
  • Check-in from 3pm & Check-out at 11am

 

Excellent stay with this hotel. No complaints. Wonderful staff, all very helpful and friendly. Lovely accommodation and allowed us to bring our dog. Food and service was perfect. Would highly recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

Whenever we need to stay in Burnley we use this hotel and have always found the staff helpful, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is really good too ☺️More recently I have had to cancel a reservation due to ill health and despite the room not having free cancellation they've waived the fee. This is the first hotel that has done this and I'm most grateful. That's another example of super service.

lovely hotel lovely room shame we heard loud fan noice all night and ceiling had cobwebs .but the hotel it self is needing a little love .all the dark wood was covered in dust ,the lovely staircase and bar table was caked in it,and the main picture as you go through the main doors was full of old dust, the brasses and windows looked like they've never been cleaned .outside tables all dirty and glasses left from night before.

Had our wedding reception here last Saturday. Staying for two nights. The speed of the service is much to be desired in general in the hotel however this was made up for the evening reception which went really well- the staff were friendly, helpful and rectified any issues for us. The hog roast we had for the evening meal was amazing- all the guests loved it. The vegan meal was incredible and guests commented how thoughtful the set up was for these meals. Thanks to Callum and Angelique for meeting with us and getting our wedding evening perfect. And for ensuring we had the Ale cask which tasted amazing by the way. We had an amazing time and loved every minute of it. The Oaks is beautiful and the prestbury suite was just perfect, along with the wedding suite. The staff just let us get on with making the rooms however we wanted them- with no limitations. Thanks to the staff for staying slightly later than planned as my guests were a little naughty sorry!! We had a lot of expensive gear at the hotel and i was anxious about leaving this unattended - however there were no problems whatsoever. Thankyou all so much Mr and Mrs Case.

Had a fabulous spa day with afternoon tea. Myself & my two grown up children enjoyed the facilities in th spa during the morning. We got towels provided. Booked our lunch for 1:30pm. The staff gave us the option of eating inside or outside. We took advantage of eating outside seeing it was a beautiful day. We had glass of prosecco or orange juice. A mixture of sandwiches. Scones with cream & jam. Also a selection of cakes, tea or coffee.

Had to book an extra day at last minute, a day before we were due to arrive. In sad circumstances i had to check in with a baby, loads of baggage & a pram on my own. When the taxi dropped me off i was struggling to get the pram up when a lovely lady (purple hair) from reception come rushing out to help me & couldn’t do enough to help. As well as combine me 2 separate days in to 1 stay & arrange a travel cot with no issues at all!! Made a very stressful/sad time a little bit more bearable. Im not sure what her name was but Thankyou so much! A real credit to the hotel. And the room is beautiful � xxx

After marrying at a Best Western (higher trapp) I thought I'd try the oaks hotel so I Booked the Valentine's 5 course meal and overnight stay, from booking I was told someone would ring me to pre order meal, no one rang me so 4 days before I rang them and was told that the meal wasn't on the system just that I'd booked a room!!! Then she found my meal booking in another file she said and told me it was a good job I rang them as it wasn't showing.Anyway I paid for prosecco on arrival as a surprise for my husband, arrived into our room to no prosecco!!! Surprise ruined! Rang to reception and was told it would be straight up, a member of staff came with it and said "here ya go" and rushed off! No apology or anything! Room was very dated, nothing like the photos I'd seen so obviously they are pics of the nicer rooms. Spa facilities cheered me up alot was nice but random kids swimming lessons going on in the pool. The 5 course meal... We was seating in the restaurant and it was dead, not one person at a table, just us. Ordered a bottle of white wine before the meal which arrived after the starter... The wine was really warm which was awful! So I told the waiter so he put ice in a bucket which didn't really help at all... Adding water n ice would have made it cold but by this point id really had enough!Sorbet arrived but the waiter dropped it on my husband! Luckily it was thick enough not to spill out....! Main was nice and pudding was ok. Went into the bar area and had a cocktail then decided to go back to our room because I was tired and fed up.Bed was comfortable and pillows nice. Slept well. Breakfast was great although no coffee! Just tea and couldn't find a member of staff to ask for coffee so went back to our room and packed and checked out. I feel the meal was very very overpriced and not worth what I paid. The bedroom we was in really needed updating as was so dated. I don't think I'd stay here again especially after they ruined my surprise that I paid £23 for.

Had a spa day with 7 friends. A little bit disorganised to say the least. Asked for some hot drinks and were served cold coffee. Tania Aspel saved the day for us, her customer service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble when she served afternoon tea for us. The day got better and we enjoyed it.

AMAZING FROM START TO FINISH!!We got married at the Oaks on 7th October and it was truly the best day not just for us but our guests. Our wedding planner Jess and manager of the day Maxine went above and beyond to make the day truely amazing!!! One of our Guests posted this on my wall on Sunday and he sums it up sooo well so here goes "Everyone says what a great day it was at a wedding. Yesterday was unreal, it was that good. Carl Briggs Chee wed his City mad Mrs ShelleyBriggs and what a day. funny nuptials-banter all day and night- food free booze entertainment was so well thought out. When my mate Chee was called by his full name the place was in uproar. Absolute quality job Carl and Shelley you really really planned so well and looked after us all. God Bless "Thanks Jess and Maxine for all your help. Your staff team were polite, attentive and accommodating xx

No lifts so if you have baby's you got your work set out, there are more stairs up and down on each floor,, but you can leave pushchairs at front desk,, rooms are clean staff great very helpful, checking in was a strange thing I always pay before and pay for room service as I use it or if I use it, but they want to charge you before then return it 21 days later? What the hell is that bout? Parking is tight I have a big car bays are just not designed for them anywhere, but hotel apart from that is fine,, I think they should move family rooms down then this stairs issue could be sorted,

We booked to have our wedding breakfast and evening wedding reception at the Oaks Hotel due to it being a local venue and easy for our guests to attend. From the off, we were made to feel like nothing was too much trouble. We booked our wedding almost 2 years in advance and had numerous meetings with the wedding co-ordinator and managers to ensure that everything was going to plan. One the day itself, everything ran very smoothly. All the guests were looked after fantastically, with special thanks to the chef who helped my god-daughter, who is autistic, feel calm and comfortable with the situation of being in unfamiliar surroundings. The food itself was so tasty and presented beautifully, the room was absolutely stunning and the honeymoon suite was amazing! Thank you again for making our day extra special, Mr & Mrs Hartley.

We got married here on the 24th March and I never imagined that it could have been so perfect. The venue is absolutely beautiful with rustic charm, and with such a large wedding party we were able to take full advantage of the many rooms they have available. The ceremony and reception rooms were dressed to perfection and we were lucky enough to have amazing weather and use the beautiful grounds for our wedding photos. Transitions from wedding ceremony, to wedding breakfast to the after party was seamless and hassle free.All the staff on the day were amazing and I can’t thank them enough. From Jess the wedding planner who made sure we had everything we needed, to Maxine who was there to make sure everything went ok on the day.We are not local and travelled two hours to have our wedding here and I would definitely encourage others to do the same. We felt our day was truly special and its amazing hearing from our guests who had as much of an amazing day as we did.Thank you for the best memories x

As they had 2 weddings on it took a while for someone to come so we could order drinks and beware of the hair dryers if you have really long hair like mine as my hair got caught in the dryer and some of it got ripped out, the staff where more than helpful especially the young blond lady in the health spa (she was fab and offered lots of advice on fitness)

We got married here in march, it was the best day ever! Of course couldn't have done it as good without Jess (wedding planner) helping every step of the way and reassuring us when we needed her! All the staff were brilliant and gave such a warm welcome. Such a lovely, clean and relaxing environment with people happy to help whenever you need it, whatever time! Thankyou so much to the oaks! & massive thankyou to the brilliant Jess xxxx

I went with my daughter who had purchased me a spa day & proseco afternoon tea for a Xmas present. In the Leisure department the staff were helpful and polite however the facilities were basic and sparse. There was only 5 seats to use for everyone which wasn't adequate we couldn't use the pool due to members classes until 11.15 therefore the small jacuzzi was out of bounds until this time. Some leisure members made a point of expressing their displeasure of Groupon & wowcher users being there which made us all feel very uncomfortable so much so we shortened our stay. I must say the proseco and afternoon tea was delightful and made up for the disappointing morning.

We had our wedding here this weekend and i cant recommend this hotel enough. Everything was amazing from the very first visit to have a look around right up until checkout the day after the wedding. I was a little nervous on the approach to the wedding that the staff decorating the room would see what i was thinking in regards to what went were but they got everything down to a Tee. The room was perfect, the food was delicious and served hot. The top table never had an empty glass and they made changes to usual timings to suit our entertainment needs. The staff were so polite and nothing was too much trouble even when it was very very last minute change of plans. Honesty couldnt recommend this hotel enough. Best day of our lives and this hotel will always remain one of our favourite places to be. Thank you thank you thank you.

I have to say u was very very disappointed!! Went for afternoon tea with my mum. The deal was afternoon tea for two with a glass of preseco. We were both asked if we had allergies or didn't like anything such as mayonnaise do we had two sandwiches that both had mayo on and neither of us can eat it!!! So we had half a ham sandwich each and left the rest. The scones I have to say we're very good! The tea was like warm yuk!! And we never received or were even asked if we wanted our glass of preseco!!!! Will not be going back I have had a few deals from best Western and have totally enjoyed them all. Except this one at Burnley. I would recommend if your tempted to read think and go to one of there other hotels.

I got married at the oaks on 04/02/2017!! I didn't have a clue what I was doing and I can honestly say Jess helped us every step of the way! Nothing was ever to much trouble for her! She was always there for any querie or questions we needed answering (literally any time of the day- sorry Jess ��). I was absolutely gutted to learn Jess wouldn't be there on our day but she assured me her colleagues would ensure everything ran smoothly on the day- and they did! They were very attentive and constantly at hand for anything you needed! My day and the lead up to it was so stress free thanks to everyone at the oaks, throughout the whole process they constantly went out of their way! I couldn't of chosen a better venue to spend my special day!! A massive thankyou to everyone at the oaks, and an even bigger one to Jess Patrick and Emma Wilson ���

I had a relaxing quiet stay at this hotel. It is a rambling traditional old building with bags of character. It has a spa and a leisure centre, neither of which I tried. Parking is free, which is nice at a hotel nowadays. There is also free wifi, which worked well for me.Breakfast was good and relaxing; coffee and toast are both served to you at the table ... no help yourself machines here. That was a nice touch, though the toast was almost cold by the time I got round to eating it.So all in all, if you are unfortunate enough to have to stay in Burnley then this hotel is possibly the best one to pick.

Decent . I stay here quite a bit so it has to be alright. Many of the rooms could do with an update. Bathrooms in particular. I enjoy the leisure club and bar though as they are very enjoyable. The taps being run from the next door room was like they were being run right next to me. The rooms that have been done up are very good though. I enjoy it there

Very nice staff and the bridal suite was lovely, a little cold as we couldn't get the radiator to work but we should of asked. Apart from that our wedding was enjoyed by all family and friends. Thank you from Mr and Mrs Mark and Leanne Bantick.

I was re-routed to Oaks after a booking error at my first choice hotel. Although promising to provide the address and post code of Oaks nothing came through from Best Western reservations at Trapp Country House Hotel and I was left to find the hotel myself.No compensation was offered for the disruption caused to my business trip and to cap it all the Tetleys was served cloudy and tasting awful.It appears several other guests were disrupted in a similar manner.You can do better! Best Western get your act together!!

The Best Western Oaks Hotel at Burnley has been my mid week home for the last twelve months. My stay has been made very enjoyable due to the friendly staff and the comfortable rooms and hotel facilities. It is a dog friendly hotel which allowed my dog to join my wife and I for a few days.Situated close to the M65 the Oaks provides ideal commuting to major cities and beautiful surrounding countryside.
