4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here last weekend as I had a Groupon voucher for the stay. The hotel was well decorated and really made a good first impression, with the staff being very friendly too. The room we stayed in was lovely! Again, very nicely decorated and clean. We were welcomed with a chilled bottle of Champagne as well as bottled water,... More

We had an over night stay recently at the hotel and it was lovely from start to finish. Had a very warm welcome on arrival by a lovely gentleman and then the same gentleman was serving in the evening who again was very polite and professional. The food was amazing the new chef is doing wonders. The bedrooms are lovely... More

The hotel is located in one of the most beautiful settings and views from the hotel across the river and fells are undeniably breathtaking. BUT. . . equally breathtaking was the stench from overflowing sanitary & disposal bins in the public toilets - it was overwhelming, particularly in the disabled toilet ! All remained overflowing and utterly stinking throughout our... More

A fantastic welcome and our afternoon tea shortly after arrival was very enjoyable. Our room (a "Fell view") was in the eaves with a gable end view over the garden and hillside which was not spectacular but ok. I really liked the décor however having rung to check that it would be set up as a twin, two days before... More

Stayed here on 7th June.Room nice enough but diner was not good. £30 set price diner not worth it! Menu stated lamb rump but no rump appeared just some dry slow cooked shoulder. As for dessert well what can I say I'm surprised they had any plates left. All you could hear was spoons clashing off the plates as the... More

We couldn't have asked for a better day to sit out in the gardens of the Devonshire Fell Hotel and have afternoon tea, or in my case coffee. Yes- I am one of those people that look out for the occasional bargain and the Groupon voucher that I had was certainly worth its weight in gold on Thursday. My husband... More

We attended a birthday lunch with friends. I had phoned ahead to inform the staff that I'm coeliac with a milk intolerance. This had also been pointed out earlier by email from my host. However, I was disappointed to see that care had not been taken with my diet. My starter, mackerel, arrived with croutons (wheat) and a salad dressing.... More

Our room was nice and warm ( once we had turned on the radiators) and although we overlooked the bins and car parks it was fine. The hospitality tray is filled with teas, coffee, elderflower, biscuits, and fresh milk in the fridge on the landing a nice touch. The bathroom was clean , good quality towels and lovely smelling toiletries.... More
