What a lovely place to stay , such friendly staff who really listen to the things that make it a special trip. Favourite foods being one of them. I love scallops and the next night they were on the menu , they were cooked to perfection and with lovely accompanying flavours. We stayed in a really comfortable room with a...

Celebrating a milestone birthday at Oak Bank last weekend was a pleasure. The welcome was warm and Room 10 is worth the climb. The view is wonderful and the room so comfortable but what tops it all is the rain shower - fantastic! We asked if game would be on the menu during our stay and hey presto! the next...

We have stayed many times at Oak Bank and don't usually comment on Trip Advisor but felt that this time we had to post a review. As usual we received a very warm welcome. The staff, as ever, were very professional yet friendly and were completely in tune with all guests needs, treating everyone with utmost courtesy and respect. We...

We booked this hotel on the basis of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, however were left with a feeling of having been conned. The dinner was good but unfortunately the family members who had been left in charge seemed to lack even basic knowledge about serving drinks - the gin and tonic was presented without ice and with the entire...

(Readers of this review please read it in chronological date order rather than just clicking for average reviews to get a full picture.) We are sorry we weren’t present during Alison C’s stay; we had a rare weekend away for a family gathering on the 1st anniversary of Simon’s Mother's passing. It’s good to see that dinner was good, it...

This was our 8th year we have been to the Oak Bank for the celebration of the new year. This speaks volumes of how much we enjoy staying hear. The food is great but more importantly is the welcome of Glynis and Simon. New Year is just like being a part of a family party. Over the years we have...

New Year Celebrations at the Oak Bank was a great experience with friends who had recommended the hotel following a very good previous stay. We were not disappointed and joined guests who are regulars for the NY celebrations which was testimony to what was on offer by host Simon and his family team. The service provided to our group of...

Another New Year experience which did not disappoint. Wonderful hospitality from all of the family who could not do enough to ensure everyone was comfortable. My recommendation: If you haven't stayed at Oak Bank then 2017 should be the year you do, like us you will not be disappointed. The combination of the friendly, generous reception and excellent Chef/kitchen team...

From the moment of arriving to leaving the owner and his staff could have not done any more to make our stay over the New Year any better. We had Room 7 which is on the the top floor, is well appointed and has fabulous views of the fells. The room was cleaned to a high standard each day. The...

My wife and I stayed at the Oakbank hotel for two nights between Christmas and New Year. The hotel is situated right in the village of Grasmere so it is a perfect location to leave the car and explore the area on foot. For those who want to explore further afield there is a regular bus service from the village...

The hotel is undergoing a rolling programme of refurbishment. The top floor had been done at the time of our visit but sadly not the room we had at that time. Our room was comfortable and quiet. Some things were not as we would have wished (such as the shower with such huge pressure it had to be held by...
