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

We have stayed many times over the past few years at this hotel and once again we really enjoyed it. Simon and Glynis take great care to make sure all their guests requirements are met and the restaurant and housekeeping staff do a wonderful job. Every evening meal is another delight and wonderful expolsion of flavours! We usually stay in... 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

We had been planning to visit the Oak Bank for some time, mainly to try the food, cooked by Darren Comish - a masterchef (the Professionals) finalist. An opportunity presented itself - good weather forecast too - so we booked at the last minute. We had a warm welcome and our room was just right. We both liked the atmosphere... More

We stayed at the Oak Bank at the end of March for two nights and had another wonderful stay. The food was divine [I am still chuffed that there was a pre-dessert dessert course, being a dessertaholic] and truly out of this world. The hotel was very peaceful and relaxing, we particularly liked having an after dinner chocolate/coffee by the... More

This was our second time at Oak Bank, and I don't have much to add to my previous review, except to say that it was every bit as good an experience as before. The hosts are warm and friendly; the staff are lovely; the rooms are clean, well-appointed and comfortable; and the food is superb. There is some building work... More

Having never been to the Lake District before (but taking my very Lake District-experienced boyfriend away for his birthday) I did a lot of research on where to stay. I eventually ended up booking The Oak Bank Hotel and it certainly didn't let me down. We arrived on Friday and, while the building work was noisy for the first 30... More
