We spent 4 nights here half board in May. We used to stay at the Youth Hostels in our student days, so this was quite a step up! The double rosette for food was what really attracted our attention, and it certainly did not disappoint. What a choice of menu for breakfast, not to mention beautifully designed and tasty dinners,...

Stayed for 4 nights. The food was first class and the service excellent. Stayed on my own but was made to feel most welcome. The room was very comfortable. The only downside was that I would have preferred a bath to a shower but other than this I would highly recommend a stay there. Although the hotel fronts onto the...

Thank you fellwalker7 for your kind comments about Oak Bank. Just a quick note to say all our superior and superior plus rooms do have ensuite baths with shower over, our standard rooms have shower en-suites.

We spent 3 nights as a short break during half term, with friends, and were not disappointed. The welcome was warm, everything decorated to a high standard. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable and the food was stunning. It was worthy of a top restaurant and we could not fault it- incredible value. We are highly likely to...

On our first stay here (just 2 nights - half board) we were very impressed by this small, friendly hotel. The bar area and conservatory restaurant were very comfortable and spacious, and the food and service excellent. Our bedroom was small, but very comfortable and spotless, and enhanced by a large balcony, which would have been great in better weather....

Excellent small hotel in the centre of Grassmere. Very comfortable, individually styled rooms, and a great welcome from the owners who like to make you feel "at home". Wonderful locally sourced food imaginatively prepared by a kitchen that cares!

I think this is the 8th year we have visited Oakbank and it's become a bit of a tradition! The food seems to get better each year and it is a perfect place for us to go as a large party of friends who can eat together then relax in the lounge together afterwards. Thank you once again Simon and...

Simon and Glynis are not only professionals running a deservedly successful business but also amateurs in the original sense of clearly enjoying what they do. It's a powerful combination. This was our second 3 night stay prompted by very positive recollections of our visit in March 2012. Our memory was not at fault. The location is good, parking is easy,...

The hospitality is second to none, and the food is truly amazing so many outstanding dishes. Our bedroom overlooked the fells and was light, airy and spotless. I would recommend Oak Bank to everyone, you will not be disappointed and will return again and again.
