We visited Oakbank about three years ago and were so impressed that we said, in the visitors book, that we'd be back, so it was that we turned up on a damp afternoon in January.
We found the hotel to be most welcoming on such a grey day, with a roaring fire in the lounge, and a friendly reception at the desk.
The room we had [6a] was comfortable, clean and spacious, so much so that we had two large armchairs to relax in The bed must have been a 'superking' as it was the biggest we'd ever slept in [but comfortable with it]. More homely were the little touches provided, and the lovely dressing gowns.
Dining was just fabulous, from breakfast to dinner. Breakfast was lacking nothing and provided a perfect start to a days walking. Dinner was the high point of our stay. Highest quality ingredients cooked to perfection in the most imaginative way and presented superbly.[congratulations to a "magic"chef. This should not be missed.
Throughout our three day stay the staff were brilliant, nothing being too much trouble to them.
I've no doubt that we will make this a more frequent destination in the future
