Oakbank House - Bowness
The good bits: Centrally located, good views of the lakes, clean beds and bathroom.
Not so good bits: Tired decoration, very tight parking, fairly average breakfasts, shower runs scalding hot when someone in the place flushes, overhear the next bedroom, rather unfriendly owner.

The car park was tiny and it was suggested that you leave your car keys with the hotel, just in case they needed to move your car! We booked through an online company, which stated that a deposit was required and the full balance was to be paid on departure but this hotel took the whole £300 for 3 nights on booking. There was an intercom in the bedroom, which the hotelier wasn't afraid to use in the middle of the night to communicate with guests. A bit strange and not a hotel I would... (read more)
