Good food, friendly staff, and in a good location for touring the area, there are a choice of rooms depending on your requirements, they are reasonably priced and as its just under new management the staff are upgrading which will make it even better.

Room tip: there is 1 room on the lower floor if you have trouble with stairs.

I recently returned for a stay at Oaklands and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was under new ownership. The previous owner Mario, has moved on to Australia and I wish him good luck.

The new owners, Fiona and Amy intend, gradually, to refurbish Oaklands while maintaining it as affordable accomodation.

Its a lovely stone house with parking outside and is a 8 minute walk to Montrose town centre. The rooms themselves are en suite and comfortable. Fiona and Amy have continued the Oaklands tradition of providing a hearty, freshly cooked breakfast.

If you want an affordable, traditional guest house with a great atmosphere and a warm welcome, then Oaklands is the place for you. Highly recommended!

Lovely welcome from Mario. The oaklands guesthouse was a modest guesthouse on the main road into Montrose. It had everything that we wanted. Was close the river & lovely pub for dinner. Would recommend.

Stayed one night at Oaklands during a recent business trip. This guesthouse is conveniently located for those persons visiting the Montrose port facility and also a short walk into Montrose itself. The accommodation is basic but comfortable. Can't comment too much on breakfast as I just had juice, bran flakes, tea and toast which was nice but I see from other comments Mario does a very good cooked breakfast - maybe next time.

Second time of staying at Oaklands and both times the owner Mario has been excellent. He is also the cook and serves up the biggest plateful of freshly prepared full Scottish breakfast or your choice off the menu for a smaller helping. I would highly recommend a stay at very reasonable rates. There is some off road car parking for 4 or 5 cars and on road parking straight outside.
