My wife and I have just returned from 3 nights at the Oakbank. We stayed in room 4 which has a very nice view of the lake. The Oakbank is in an excellent position for walking into the lovely town of Bowness. The breakfast was good and the staff very attentive. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was... More

Great place to stay perfect location, lovely views and adequate breakfast. Best quality was the warm welcome and friendly helpful staff. Found the hotel by accident on the first night of our mini tour of the North of England and only intended to stay one night. But on our second day we booked out of Oakbank to travel One and... More

I booked this hotel for my husband and I's anniversary, on arriving at the hotel the car park is very small and tight and if you're no good at reversing you're going to have problems. We were greeted very pleasantly and shown to our room which was very clean but again I wouldn't say was of a 5* calibre. We... More

We stayed for three nights with our five month old baby. A travel cot was provided at no extra cost, the room was large and clean, the staff are most helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The location is very central, shops and restaurants are on your doorstep. Overall, a great place to stay!

We went away for the August Bank Holiday weekend and we booked this place online. The hotel is clean, well present and in the perfect place for shops, pubs and places to eat. The room was clean and even after walking up 2 flights of stairs the view over Windermere was well worth it. The breakfast was something else, if... More

Me and my wife have stayed here twice now. Its a great hotel with the best location its higher on the hills of Bowness so you have a great view of the lake. Some hotels closer to the lake don't have a view as they sit too low on the land. We stayed in room 7 the view was perfect,... More

Me and my husband stayed here last week and it's our second visit to the hotel. It's a lovely place with great views and friendly staff. We stayed in room 7 which had a better view than our last room we stayed in which was room 4. They are both great rooms but id pick 7 if we stayed again.... More

Stayed here last wk with parents . We had room 11, lovely refurbished room on top floor . Breakfast faultless and views from dining room superb. The angel hotel next door was a lovely pub to end our night. Do the river cruises and have a coffee at the Laura ashley hotel .
