Lovely comfortable hotel, really friendly staff and a really good breakfast, room 4 very nice, free wifi, no hassle, trouble free, perhaps the car park could get difficult but we managed, immaculate bedding, probably the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in , would definitely come back .

My partner and I stayed for three nights in May 2015. We booked a double room with Lakeview which was room 2 on the ground floor next to the dining room and lounge. We thought due to the location of our room that it would be noisy but it certainly wasn't and we had three unbroken comfortable nights sleep. The... More

We had stayed here a couple of years ago and decided to use Oakbank again for a short stay in the Lakes. Booked up for 2 nights to relax. The room was perfect with amazing views. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the very warm welcome. We would not hesitate to book again..

My partner and l stayed at Oakbank for one night, last minute booking. We received a warm welcome from Danny and were shown to our room which was on the first floor at the rear of the building. The room was clean and spacious, so was the ensuite bathroom. Danny is extremely knowledgeable about the area and he gave us... More

Had a great stay at this hotel! My boyfriend proposed to me the day before in Keswick so we were already having a brilliant weekend and Oakbank was the icing on the cake. We got a room at the front of the hotel with a beautiful view stretching all the way down to the lake and beyond. The window was... More

The first thing we noticed was how helpful the team here were on our arrival. We were offered coffee in the lounge and then given room 11 which involved a lot of stair climbing, but was worth it. Would have loved a lift! The situation of the guest house was ideal for walking into Bowness were there are lots of... More

This is a lovely guest house in a great location, but I didn't feel it was five star. We had room 11, and the room itself is lovely with great views over the lake. The bathroom is however very small, and very average. I think it lacks the little touches that make somewhere five star- plastic glasses in the bathroom,... More
