Where to start? We booked to stay here for 2 nights as part of our Honeymoon. Could easily of stayed here for the whole 10 days. Amazing setting, staff friendly and always happy. Food was delicious. Our room was more than expected with a tv above the whirlpool bath. And views to die for. Even though the weather was not... More

Superb setting! Lovely staff, not fine dining but food was OK. Drinks very reasonable. Room comfortable, great power shower, windows need replacing? Must be draughty in winter but charming and quirky! Red squirrels a joy to watch! Didn't manage to see England's only golden eagle but good walk to the RSPB site from the hotel. A good value Groupon deal... More

Short break with the misses , staff were very helpful and friendly. Food good, bedroom and bathroom nice. Lovely gardens and fantastic views and walks. We knew the place was going through a re-furb and the total experience will be complete once this is finished ,we are sure. Agree some local brewed beers would add value.

Nothing for miles around but nothing else needed. Hotel provides fantatsic food, scenery beyond belief and lovely rooms with very nice bathroom suites. The hotel overall is great and staff are second to none. The assistant manager couldn't do more for us, recommending walks, things to do and was an all round gentleman single handedly adding taking the hotel from... More

The only thing to let the deal down I got through Groupon was the standard of the room. The setting, staff and place was very good. Unfortunately the room let the hotel down massively. We got the nights stay on a Groupon deal but even at £79 including breakfast was still overpriced for the standard of the room. If I... More

We stayed here for one night only, ate in the restaurant and had breakfast. The hotel is rather "tired" and in need of some refurbishment. We felt that the cost of the stay was really overpriced for what we had. The food was okay, but nothing to shout about. Not a great breakfast selection, but made to order. The room... More

We stayed for a two night break at the end of May of this year. We had been motivated by the good reviews but we were disappointed. We booked a suite with a balcony. When we arrived we were initially sent up to an already occupied room. Not a good start. When this was sorted out the suite we were... More

If you choose this hotel, it will definitely be for the views and the location rather than anything about the hotel itself, which is average and somewhat basic. Hotel restaurant food is good but moderately expensive for what you're getting. Rooms are pretty bare and could definitely do with a touch of modernisation. However you will forget all of that...

We stayed at Haweswater Hotel 5th to 7th July 2015. This was our 4th visit to the hotel and yet again it did not disappoint. The location of the hotel allows you to visit other attractions in the area and we decided to visit the Bird of Prey centre near to Lowther Castle about 20-30 mins away and had a... More

Stayed between 9th and 11th. The hotel is a very old building and I imagine there are limits to what can be done with it however it's extremely comfortable and the room was a very good size, High Street Suite, with a nice view over the reservoir and a private terrace with seating for dry summer nights. Huge, and comfortable... More
