This was our second stay which speaks for itself but the owner Danny and his wife and staff deserve recognition for their efforts. Rooms spotlessly clean, breakfast very good with local produce. Tea and coffee in room and guest lounge. Free car park and literally a stones throw from the lake so we didn't need to use the car at... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in July. We enjoyed a fantastic view of Lake Windermere in room 11. The room was very clean and had been tastefully decorated and furnished. However, the bathroom was small and the narrow sink was not ideal for my husband to have a shave. Again stunning views could be enjoyed when eating... More

We're currently on our 4th visit at Danny's great guest house. Every room we've stayed in has been nicely decorated (so much so, I'm gonna ask what colour is on the walls, for my bedroom at home) and has been spotlessly clean..very important. The breakfast, as always, is tasty and a good way to start the day. The guest house... More

This is most definitely not 5 star! When we arrived just after 4pm, we found the door locked and no one to answer. We found however, Danny had left a message on our mobile to say he had to pop out and would be back by 4.30pm so we went for a short walk and arrived back at 4.45pm unloaded... More

I recently booked Oakbank for a wee get away for myself and my boyfriend. It was a mixed experience. Before arriving, the manager (Danny) had phoned asking us when we would arrive and whether we could give him a ring on our way as he needed to step out for a bit - fair enough. On arrival (while I went... More

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..
