“lived up to tour expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

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.

We have just returned from our 2nd stay at the Oak Bank - it was a pleasure to return and everything was just as good as we remembered it from our first stay.
The rooms are all individually decorated and the finishing touches in room are lovely
The food cannot in any way be faulted, the presentation, the quality and the variety are simply the best
Glynis and Simon are the perfect host, welcoming,helpful but not intrusive
Thank you both so much, we will be back next time we are in The Lakes

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful, you will not be disappointed whichever room you are allocated

I still can't believe how amazing food was. Wasn't really expecting it at all!! Owners are really nice and helpful. They let us have a really late check in and also breakfast little earlier than usual as we were going on an early hiking trip. Rooms were really nice and hotel really quiet. Also loved the view. Definitely great place to stay in Lakes..

Room Tip: Very small thing I can mention is that the bed was really squeaky so I didn't really sleep prope...

We have just spent 2 nights at Oak Bank and can only say a big "thank you" to fellow Tripadvisor users. We booked it following some fantastic reviews and it did not disappoint in any way.
The rooms are OK with everything you need.
The location is ideal with stunning views.
Car parking at the front of the hotel.
Then we get onto the highlight of our stay, the food. We have been lucky over the last few years to have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the UK and abroad. We are both of the opinion that the food we have sampled at The Oak Bank Hotel is the best we have eaten. Everything selected during our stay was perfection on a plate. We just wish we had stopped longer. Without doubt we will return very soon.
The chef is a star and extremely talented.
We must say a big thank you to the owners and all staff who made our stay so enjoyable.
