The ideal hotel with excellent dining! The rooms are tastefully decorated, small but well equipped, The receptionist made us feel at home from the minute we stepped into the hotel.. The chef produced the finest of meals. They were delicious, with some unusual combinations that paired perfectly together and the presentation was top class. The reception was homely so that... More

This is a small hotel run by a husband and wife team supported by a small team of dedicate staff. with easy access to the sights of the Lake District. The hotel has very comfortable bedrooms. The lounge has a bar for pre dinner drinks and is next to the dining room. Evening meals are exceptional, well presented and prepared.... More

Having been attracted to the hotel after coming across Jay Rayner's review in the Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2013/dec/08/oak-bank-hotel-grasmere-lake-district-restaurant-review-jay-Rayner) some time ago we were expecting some excellent food and were in no way disappointed. Just about Michelin-star quality without the front of house fussiness so many high-end restaurants suffer from. Truly outstanding and very reasonably priced - good selection of well-priced wines, as... More

We felt unwelcome from the moment we arrived. Maybe it was because my 13 year old son was with us . We felt invisible. Our room was terrible, a converted garage , I think , with 3 beds crammed in . The bathroom was not clean. Underneath the step to the bath there was dirt and hairs. The toilet rim... More

This review and the one below have been written by the same people for the same stay in the same room. Our relatively new housekeeper was not aware that the heavy box step to get in the bath was not permanently fixed in place and it is true that there was some dirt and hair, this has been cleaned and...

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
