We found this hotel at the last minute via the internet as our favourite hotel in Bowness was full. The Oak Bank was so good that we will definitely be back. Everything ran like clockwork but seemed to be so effortless although I'm sure a lot of planning must go on behind the scenes to make this happen. Our room was perfect, it was well decorated, the bed was comfortable and there was a good selection of tea, coffee, biscuits and an extra touch of sherry each day. There was parking directly outside the hotel and it was well situated for the village itself and for several walks which are on the doorstep. The food was delicious and we spent all day looking forward to the evening meal which changed every day. Pre-dinner drinks were served in the lounge with canapes and a four course meal followed together with coffee back in the lounge. There were two lounges one with an open fire each night and the other with magazines and information on the area. The food was some of the best we have tasted in a hotel. Breakfast was equally good with a range of fruit juices, cereals etc. and a choice of hot breakfast too. It was of equally high quality. The staff and owners are all really friendly, down to earth and had the balance just right. What sets this hotel apart is the excellent food , friendly staff and the owners having their finger on the pulse. We hope to be back and wish the Oakbank well - Thank you for a thoroughly relaxing stay.
