First, the Oak Bank Hotel is not cutting edge designer chic posh. It's comfortable instead and all the better for it. Yes, they are refurbishing the place and parking is a bit of a challenge, there is a water stain on the ceiling in the lounge bar area but to highlight these is to miss to the point. When the...

I am not a creature of habit usually, but staying and eating at Oak Bank is becoming one. A lovely room with some wonderful touches (gorgeous bath and body products in the bathroom, sherry and home made shortbread), very friendly and accommodating owners and staff - what more could you want? Add to it an award winning, Masterchef Professional finalist... More

Ok so first off were the builders in yes. Did it affect our stay no! We could get parked and there was minimal noise and there was no issues. Don't know why people on here are complaining about it!!! Also I didn't notice any water stains on the ceiling because I was too busy looking at the absolutely fantastic and... More

Thank You for taking the time to write this, we are trying to keep all disruption and noise to a minimum whilst we improve Oak Bank, in a month it will all be finished and any reviews written about it will be irrelevant! The difference to both the look of the building inside and out will be fantastic. We hope... More

We spent two enjoyable nights here in an excellent location in the Lake District. Simon and Glynis were very welcoming and there were lots of lovely touches, like sherry and shortbread biscuits in the bedroom. We were blown away by the food - better than a lot of high end restaurants -with some fantastic touches, such as three different types... More

This 3 night break we had at the Oak Bank is difficult to sum-up. The hotel sells itself on the quality of the dining experience it offers and it fully deserves all of the plaudits it has received. Both the quality and presentation of the meals were excellent and there are many much more pretentious establishments which could learn a... More

Thank you Mr N for your kind comments about the food, The Dining Room currently holds 2 rosettes and is Michelin recommended, contrary to Mr N’s comment that the hotel prevents The Dining Room from achieving the accolades which its kitchen deserves it doesn’t. He’s right that it is a bargain too but so was his stay at £68 per... More

We love the Cumbrian countryside, the lakes, the mountains, and to enjoy all this splendour, we love the choice and quality of the many beautiful hotels it has to offer. However, we have always wanted to try the restaurant of the Oak Bank hotel but it has always been to busy, so last month we booked a 3 day short... More

First things first: I can't comment on the hotel or the restaurant so the marks are not really relevant but didn't want to mark the hotel down by leaving anything blank hence 5 stars all round. I thought I had to praise the owners of this hotel for the way they handled a situation in which I found myself in.... More

I don't normally write reviews but just had to do on this occasion. We visit the lakes very regularly but this was our first time here. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the best we have ever eaten even though we have stayed at more expensive hotels before. It is fantastic value and exceeded our expectations. Each course...
