breakfast was lovely and staff very friendly and in a great location.
A warm welcome and comfortable stay
Perfect location. comfy bed. quiet nights.
Room was a bit too cold even with heating full on all the time.
Location excellent, staff very friendly overall great place to stay
friendly staff, clean, pleasantly decorated rooms, good breakfast.
we stayed at end of December during a spell of extremely cold weather (temperatures below freezing) and both rooms booked were on the cold side. In one, the heated towel rail was not working and it was the only heat source in the bathroom.
Leisure facilities in another location. Too little time between start of breakfast and last time to sit down. Bathroom too small
Location was good nice and warm staff were very nice
Breakfast was good but not hot enough
Came here for my bfs birthday picked this hotel mainly for the location but enjoyed everything else it had to offer. Lovely breakfast with plenty of choice on the menu. Beautiful room with very comfy bed. Also loved the spa that we access to. Would highly recommend.
Car park was a bit difficult to get parked in think it would be a nightmare in the summer. Apart from that nothing. Great hotel.
Room and location were excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Danny the host was welcoming and the breakfast was very good indeed.
There was no hot water to the sink on Saturday evening and had to boil the kettle for a shave.
Location, location, location! We stayed in the superior lake view at the top of the house! Nicely refurbished. Lovely bathroom.
Unfortunately we were not informed that there was scaffolding along the side of the house, causing an obstruction to the otherwise gorgeous view! Plus the builders using the scaffolding in the morning!
Central location boat down to Ambleside also not far to travel by car to other attractions
Excellent location. Spotlessly clean. Very relaxed, come and go as you please. Excellent breakfast.
good location (very close to Lake windermere) staff were friendly. rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated
there was a little leak in our bathroom
Extremely overrated and overpriced. Poor breakfast
WE had the King room on the top floor with the best view of the lake. It was quiet and the breakfast was exceptional.
Extremely comfortable bed Spacious bedroom, good decoration Beautiful lake views Very convenient right in centre of Bowness Nice breakfast Staff friendly
Car park a little tight but ok for us as just parked for full time there and based ourselves in Bowness Some areas looked in need of decoration eg hallways/landings
The staff and breakfast were great
Someone was put in our room so had to wait for the other guests to return until we could go into it. Then the curtains had broken when we got to the room they were fixed at 10.30pm. Won't be returning
Well kept and very clean establishment with excellent breakfast. Room very bright and clean
En suite very cramped for space. A double room really needs two chairs, but only one provided probably due to the small room area
View from room over town to lake
Shower too cold
Whilst staying at OakBankHouse my husband and I both enjoyed the breakfast and the room was nice and clean too, the staff were very friendly and helpfull and I would recommend this to my friends.
Nothing really about the accommodation, just the road was quite steep and as my husband has chest problems he found this a bit difficult at times.
friendly atmosphere helpful staff really good location.
very dated needs a face lift it was linked to a hotel down the road for the swimming pool and spa facilities that was,nt made clear in the write up
VERY CENTRAL BUT UP A VERY STEEP HILL.
ROOM TO SMALL NOT LIKE PICTURES ON INTERNET. HOW CAN IT BE 5 STAR. TO USE POOL ETC YOU HAD A FEW MINUTES WALK TO ANOTHER HOTEL?
