We spent 2 enjoyable nights in a well appointed room with an excellent breakfast, the porridge being exceptional. We had dinner on the 2nd evening which was again excellent and nicely served. The staff were friendly and were keen to make our stay enjoyable.

We were met with a very warm welcome from Mel who showed us to our room. Amazing view from the huge windows, tastefully decorated, bathroom with powerful shower, plenty of towels & a robe each. Loved the small decanter of sherry & the homemade flapjack! Although the room is on the top floor (hence the views) the stairs were no... More

Stopped for 3 nights. Very friendly and helpful staff. Ate in the 'Dining Room' restaurant on the Saturday night - the setting, service and food quality & presentation were excellent. And the pre-booked resident discount made this dinner experience exceptionally good value. We loved it. Have to say that the inclusive breakfast was unexpectedly brilliant. Great portions of smoked salmon... More

I have stayed here before and Oak Bank has continued to improve. I have stayed at many Grand Hotels around the world; Oak Bank is not grand, it is excellent, which is far harder to achieve. The owners are constantly in attendance and are charming and helpful. The restaurant is extremely good and the Breakfast to die for. Well decorated... More

The food at this restaurant is exceptional and the staff made us feel really welcome. We really had a perfect stay in the Lakes which never ceases to be amazing. Grasmere is great place to get to anywhere and very picturesque. We will definitely return to the Oak Bank to eat even if we don't stay there.

We stayed for three nights last week and don't think we could have found a better hotel. Our room was very comfortable, and though it overlooked the road we were not disturbed at all by traffic noise. The owners and staff were all very friendly without being intrusive. The restaurant has a great chef and the food was excellent which... More

Our first time her but we'll definitely be back. Expensive but worth it. We booked the Acorn Suite which is on the ground floor and has its own entrance from the street. Massive room and bed, very comfortable sofa and club chair, jacuzzi, great cotton robes. We didn't eat dinner there but from the quality of the breakfast I'm sure... More

What is the word for the level above 'excellent'? For that is what we experienced when we dined at the Oak Bank Hotel at Grasmere in the Lake District. It was our second visit and we were delighted that our hopes and expectations were justified beyond our nostalgic memories. The warmth of the welcome, the comfort and ambience of the... More

I have already reviewed the restaurant which was excellent. We had a room which was impossibly hot as it was in the attic and the weather was very warm. The heat was also made worse by the heated towel rail which we turned off. If this had been normal weather this room would have been good. The second day we... More

We stayed in the Oak Bank for our honeymoon in August. The couple who run the hotel are charming, discrete and friendly. The food, breakfast and dinner, is awesome and the location is great. A totally relaxing stay.
