Just got home from a 1 night stay at oak bank... I took my husband and 20 month daughter for fathers day... Every1 was lovely and very accommodating... Hotal is welcoming.. Very clean and the room was brilliant.. The food was gorgeous and dinner bed and breakfast package was value for money... We would like to say a big thankyou to the staff and other guests for making our stay easy even when baby Robyn decided she didnt want to e a good girl at meal times... We decided to take her out the restaurant before she ruined everybody's meal experience but we were kindly offered our dessert in our room.... Thankyou to Simon and glynis for our stay.... We will definatly be back... Possibly without Robyn x

Just returned from our second visit to this hotel and were not disappointed. Yet again the food was of outstanding quality and the helpfulness of the hosts in accommodating special dietary requirements was much appreciated. Ideally positioned for some great walking, our car never left the car park until it was time to leave. Would highly recommend this hotel and thank Glynis and Simon for a lovely stay.

We returned to this hotel after discovering it last year. The second visit did not disappoint. We were welcomed on arrival and enjoyed the same little touches which make a stay here so special, such as the small decanter of sherry and spring water (superior rooms only), the lovely bathroom products and the beautifully decorated and furnished room. The lounge and bar areas are very comfortable and relaxing, just the right ambience in which to relax after a day's walking. But the highlight has to be the beautiful restaurant and the food which is served in it. The menus are amazing, the presentation superb and the taste absolutely delicious. The service is first class with all table linen absolutely pristine. This hotel is a treasure.

We chose this hotel on the basis of the reviews on this site. All the plaudits were so well deserved. We stayed half board - a great saving when booked up front. The staff were helpful but unobtrusive, the room whilst a little small was perfectly fine. What made our stay was the food - outstanding quality of ingredients and brilliantly cooked by John and his team. I could not praise them more highly. We will definitely go back - as soon as we can find time to return! Many thanks for a superb extended weekend.

Great little hotel, clean and comfortable with some outstanding food. The only time we have stayed in a hotel half board mainly due to reviews of the food which was superb fine dining and excellent value if booked at the same time as the room.

This was our third time at the Oak Bank Hotel and it was just as good as ever. As always, the food was fantastic - inventive and full of flavour. Simon and Glynis were perfect hosts and we had a wonderfully relaxing time.
