We visited the Haweswater Hotel after purchasing a Groupon voucher for a three night stay for £189.00. If you are looking for a remote and peaceful location where there are no children and enjoy hill walking or photography then this hotel is the one for you. The staff were all really helpful, polite and welcoming. The hotel was tired and... More

We had a standard room with double bed, ensuite bathroom with bath and hand held shower. Seating area with tea/coffee making facilities but no tv. The bed was very comfortable but the view from the window was probably the best we have ever had - straight across Haweswater to the fells. Art Deco in furnishings, beautifully kept. Well cooked and... More

The hotel was built in the 30s at the same time as Haweswater was being dammed to form the huge Haweswater reservoir, so retains art deco features such as parquet floors, lighting, wooden fittings and decorative, steel-framed windows. Our room had some period touches, but lacked artwork on the walls which left it feeling a bit bare, but the lake... More

We're just home from a two nights break here. It was a 70 the birthday present for me from our children. The hotel is located on the side of a lake with majestic views. Our room was the Lakeside loft and overlooked the lake from the side, it was large and comfortable with a full sized bath& even bigger shower.... More

My partner and I visited the Haweswater Hotel on the 15th June 2015. The Hotel has beautiful views over Haweswater and is surrounded by hills and walks of varying difficulty and has a small but pretty garden. As there are no boats allowed on the water and the hotel is the only building in the area it is a haven... More

Have travelled a fair bit of UK and a lot more of the world. Have got to say that this is the most amazing and surprising pocket of "special" I have come across in England. Sure, the hotel is a bit dated and has a quirky edge but the gobsmackingly, jaw dropping scenery right on its door step and the... More

In short; they were short-staffed, the rooms were aged and in serious need of decorating (damp coming through ceilings and walls) and front of house staff were quite surly and miserable looking. All this is without even mentioning the almighty cock-up with our room booking: We had seen a Groupon deal advertising bed and breakfast for a good price in... More

Just came back from a 2 night stay. On a positive note the hotel is located in a stunning location with fantastic views.The room we were allocated was one of lake view unrefurbished rooms which was very clean but a little worn and old fashioned. I was surprised that there was just a bath and no shower and not even... More
