We have stayed here several times and had a lovely two night break recently. The staff were welcoming as ever. Our room was beautifully appointed with fab lake views. Breakfast excellent. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and we look forward to returning at New Year.

Following the usual warm welcome we were shown to our second floor room with a great view of the lake. The room was lovely and warm to take off the November chill and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Breakfast in the attractive newly refurbished was excellent with plenty of choice and high quality ingredients.
With a pub across the road and a five minute walk to the lake it's a great place to stay.

Just returned home from 4 days at Oakbank. This is me and my fiancee's second visit here after staying around 4 years ago and I'm pleased to report its just as good as we remembered. Perfect position so you don't have to walk miles to a local pub or restaurant and the lake itself which means you can literally park your car up and forget about it. We had a lake view room nice to wake up every morning looking at the town and lake also a very comfortable bed for a great nights sleep. Breakfasts very nice with plenty of choice and perfect portions to set you up for the day.

I would go as far to say I don't think I would stay anywhere else in Bowness and look forward to returning for a third visit in the near future. Thanks Danny + staff.

We have just got back from 2 nights at the Oakbank House.Overall a very nice B&B located in the centre of Bowness. The room was well appointed and bright having views across the lake from both windows. We found the breakfast to be excellent with a good choice of various dishes and there was even two sizes of the "Full English" cooked breakfast! If we had any criticism it would be the size of the en suite which was very small but difficult to convert an old house to fit modern needs. All in all very good.

Just come back from 2 nights stay at Oakbank. Couldn't fault it. Great location in the centre of town, lovely room and wonderful breakfast. Will definitely be back. We had room 5 which had lovely view over the town towards the lake. Nice touch being able to use leisure facilities at hotel next door - nice swim, jacuzzi and sauna was just what we needed after a long day out.

We stayed here overnight in August and found this B&B to be of a very high standard, although we did find the bathroom a little small. We had a lovely room that overlooked the lake. We were very centrally located and walking distance to town. The breakfast here was very tasty. Overall, a very good experience.
