I had better first explain the title: we loved the owners uncompromising approach to smoking in the hotel. The section in the welcome book to do with smoking was a joy to read, both from the point of view as non-smokers ourselves but also the honesty with which the owners explain their stance.
Okay, now the important stuff. Oak Bank Hotel is well located in beautiful Grasmere, within a minutes stroll of the village centre. The building itself is well maintained, and our room had one of the most comfortable beds we have experienced in any hotel. The bedroom and adjoining bathroom were both spick and span.
The restaurant was, in part, a large conservatory, and the kitchen produced good food from a reasonably diverse menu. A good wine list added to our enjoyment - as well as a good range of Lakeland beers.
We would definitely recommend Oak Bank, and will no-doubt be staying there again ourselves. Especially as there is little chance of breathing secondary cigarette smoke:-)
