slightly hilly approach,compact car park, made to feel welcome on arrival, our room overlooked the lake and was very comfortable, nice bed/sheets/towels were all fine, breakfast was very good and promptly served,minutes from all the attractions, and free use of a spa/pool/sauna nearby which was a nice touch, would recommend

Only to be asked . Why you in kendal ? What did that real matter I thought.Asked them what the conditions... More

I am sorry that you feel our offer to allow you to re-book any time in December or January was lacking in hospitality. I feel it is only fair of me to point out that you actually made your booking through a third party booking agent and not directly with us therefore we are bound by their terms and conditions...

An okay nights sleep just the usual knocks and bangs of an old house! Breakfast the next morning was... More

We had a lovely stay at Oakbank. It was a very warm welcome again. The room was clean and the bathroom spotless. Plenty of storage and enough clothes hangers which is not always the case in other hotels. Comfortable bed. Food was superb as usual, served by pleasant staff. Could not fault it, and will hopefully be back in the... More

A lovely and spacious B&B situated within walking distance of Lake Windermere and Bowness town centre. We received a warm welcome and were delighted with the room (a suite) which enjoyed lovely views over the town and lake. The room was pristine and well presented with all the mod cons you could need - TV, hairdryer, kettle, cups and plenty... More

We were just a short walk to the lake where we could get the boat to Ambleside. Choice of breakfast... More

We visited England from Australia in September 2015 and decided to look Oakbank up again. Initially we only intended to visit Windermere for a day trip but when we got to Oakbank and realised nothing had... More

Just enjoyed a couple of nights at the Oakbank House in Bowness-on-Windermere and would recommend it to any one looking to stay in Bowness without kids. The location is on Helm road just off the main street and shops so its close enough to walk if the weather was bad but not near enough to be troubled with traffic. Being... More
