I paid extra for a view of the lake and for a nicer room, they told me they would put me in the honeymoon room! I was really looking forward to stopping there for my birthday weekend! When I arrived I was made to feel very welcome and it was a lovely place in a good central location. We were... More

We have spent the last 2 nights in room 11 whic has great views of the lake . The room itself is bright & airy with a double bed and plenty of floor space. Bathroom is small but perfectly formed & suitable for what we needed it for. There is a free car park which is tight but perfectly manageable... More

We are regular visitor's to Bowness this being our 9th visit in 12 months. In my opinion Oakbank House is not a 5 star guests house, compared to other 5 stars we have had the privilege to stay in. You are definitely paying for location here. Parking extremely tight, welcoming and friendly on arrival, room ok but more a 3... More

Booked this hotel last minute for an overnight stay with friends. Great location, fantastic views, parking a little tight. We were given a room on the top floor of the hotel in the loft space. Good size, large bathroom, well equipped. Our only gripe was it was very windy and the windows continously banged through the night although this didnt... More

Positive - Situated in a fantastic location with parking (very tight) and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was very tasty. The staff in the dining room were very friendly and helpful. The free use of the spa facilities was a positive experience and highly recommended. Negative - our bedroom was freezing with badly fitted windows. (The wind outside blew my hair... More

Me and my patner stayed in October as a suprise weekend away, it was a great stay. Clean room with the essentials you need, friendly staff that welcomed us despite the fact we arrived late Friday night! Breakfast was very nice and our overall stay at the hotel was pleasant.

We stayed in room 6 this week. We found the room very comfortable and warm , the staff were great . Our only faults were the very small shower cubical and poor electric shower ( you have to dance around to find the water ). For a 5 star hotel I'd have expected better ironing equipment and longer breakfast. 8.30... More
