A home from home. Clean from top to bottom. The staff are all so attentive and friendly. The restaurant produces the most amazing meals. Cant wait to stay again. Can not recommend enough. The breakfast was very good also

After a third day of walking in what felt like blistering heat from Saint Bees, the Oak Bank Hotel provided just the break we needed to get back on track onwards to Patterdale. Arriving fairly late on in the day and with no prior booking, we wandered around Grasmere looking for a spare room... truth be told, I think we... More

From the minute you walk through the door you are made to feel at home. We were shown to our room which was the standard we expected for a 3 Star hotel. It was clean and well equipped with a large comfortable bed. We had dinner in the restaurant and from the amuse bouche and beautiful home made breads and... More

My wife and I have just stayed again for two nights after a lovely two-night stay in March.As before, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If I say that the food is outstanding - and it is - this should not detract from the fact that the hotel itself is very nice. It has a comfortable ambiance; the staff are all friendly... More

I had better first explain the title: we loved the owners uncompromising approach to smoking in the hotel. The section in the welcome book to do with smoking was a joy to read, both from the point of view as non-smokers ourselves but also the honesty with which the owners explain their stance. Okay, now the important stuff. Oak Bank... More

I booked the Oak Bank Hotel on the strength of the reviews of its food, I wasn't disappointed. The hotel itself is not the main attraction although the room we had was fit for purpose & did have a lovely view of the Lakeland hills (room 7). The attention to detail made the weekend, the food was delicious & the... More

Booked the night before for a last minute weekend away. Our only option was dinner, bed and breakfast.... We weren't all that keen on this for both nights as we like to have options to try other places, however it did say on booking that we could cancel 1 night if we preferred which we decided to do and just...

The food was excellent. a real fine dining experience. A very extensive breakfast choice. The staff could not be nicer and location brilliant. As in a previous review room 15 was very hot! I would have asked to move rooms if we had been staying more than one night. a shame in an otherwise large beautiful and comfortable room. Next... More

Grasmere offers you easy access to see the rest of the lakes and the hotel is in a good position in this very pretty village. We stayed at the hotel for two nights with my aunt, so had 2 Rooms, a superior and superior plus. My aunts room (4) was lovely and she thoroughly enjoyed her stay, if she was... More

Our third stay in the Oak Bank Hotel over 18 years, and the third owners, but the character of the hotel and the high level of service remain unchanged over the years. Glynnis and Simon Wood are now the owners and Glynnis looked after our booking superbly and didn't mind the odd ways we split the bill at the end... More
