Enjoyable made welcome room lovely would definitely go again

Very good 8,0
Short break in Bowness
Ideally located just minutes from the shops, restaurants and bars in Bowness. We managed to park in front of the house meaning that we could see our car from our room which we liked. Our room (9) on the top floor had a comfy bed and pillows and towels that looked brand new. The dual aspect windows gave us lovely views of the lake and neighbouring gardens. There was enough storage for our clothes etc. Breakfast each day was very good with lots of choice and good quality ingredients. The lady in the breakfast room was very friendly! We only have one negative in that we found the paintwork in the bedroom was quite marked as was some of the soft furnishings. Having chosen the property from its photos we did feel a little disappointed. However this would not prevent us from returning as we understand that the room is due for an update soon. We loved Bowness and would like to return again and would certainly stay at Oakbank House again!

Good Hotel Great Location
We stayed in the 'side room', which although doesn't have a great view or much natural light was very convenient, private and quiet with plenty of space that we quickly grew to appreciate alongside the ability to open the door and receive the fresh lakeland air! The owner and staff were very pleasant and a small housekeeping issue was sorted out very quickly without any fuss. Nice breakfast with good selection of options. Situation is very convenient for Bowness and also a 20 min walk up to Windermere town. The only improvement would be to have a bigger slot for breakfast as 08:15 to 09:15 felt a touch restrictive.
