We stayed here whilst on a walking weekend. The owners and staff could not have been more helpful. The evening meal menu was so appealing it was difficut to decide what to chose. The chef, a local man, provided clever tasty food. I will happily return here. The rooms are 3*.

We would just like to thank the owners for making us feel so welcome during our recent overnight stay. We'd booked dinner, bed and breakfast and couldn't fault a thing. Most enjoyable was eating in the restaurant, where there was a good choice; a tasty range of dishes, executed brilliantly. (A "thumbs-up" for the request of no mobile phone use... More

2 night trip planned but unfortunately had to cut short. Very understanding owners and a big thank-you to them. Lovely upstairs room-perhaps could do without the chair as had to move to open wardrobe! Great bathroom brightened by skylight. Superb meal-great choices including winelist. Will hopefully return for a "proper" stay!!

Once again a memorable stay - very good hotel in a great location for exploring the Lake District. Glynis, Simon and all their staff continue to make every visit a pleasure and the food is simply stunning - Darren and his team deserve all the praise they get.

Another lovely stay at Oak Bank. The food was tremendous, as always - fine dining in a really relaxed atmosphere is a winning combination. Our room was cosy, with the most comfortable bed ever. The welcome, from all the staff is genuinely warm & friendly. (Simon even jump-started our car for us!!) The hotel is in a great position &... More

The hotel is well situated in the village of Grasmere, and well worth a visit. Our room was colour co-ordinated and with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The restaurant was lovely with views over the garden and red squirrels running about in the garden. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice. We ate in the... More

Every word of praise on this site is well deserved by everyone at Oak Bank. We have just spent another few days in the company of Simon & Glynis who, with their staff, take great pride in looking after their guests. The new rooms are really swish with the added bonus of fantastic views, can't wait to stay in one... More

Just come back from our third visit to this wonderful hotel. We stayed in room 8 on the top floor which has been newly refurbished and was lovely. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was beautifully light. The bathroom had a fab new rainfall shower and was very modern and clean. We had dinner at the hotel on... More

We booked to stay two nights at Oak Bank and arranged to dine there on one of those nights. The overall experience was very good. The rooms, though not massive, were big enough and well appointed. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming throughout our stay. The dinner was excellent and for the price you pay if you book it... More
