This was our second visit to the Sawrey House hotel and generally we were again impressed. This time we opted for a lake view room which was worth it with great views over the lake. Once again the staff were more than friendly with a warm welcome. We were lucky this time to have excellent weather, sitting on the sun... More

Great location with awesome scenery. Very peaceful. Easy access to nearby towns. Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Very comfortable bed. Food was amazing, it could not be faulted. Lots of choice at breakfast and all freshly cooked. The evening meals were stupendous.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was one of the best with an excellent choice of fresh fruit. The evening meals were on the whole excellent with one exception of duck which was immediately replaced. The rooms were spacious although the decor was a little outdated and in need of general maintenance.p

Me and my boyfriend went here from Friday to Sunday and it was the most beautiful hotel, the building itself, the four poster bedroom and the scenery were all amazing. The service was also brilliant from arriving to leaving. We had the first night dinner also and the chefs definitely know what they are doing, the food was divine. I... More

Lovely small hotel in a fantastic position with views over the nearby Lake. Rooms clean, staff very friendly, and good quality food. We had chowder and steak, and the sweets were delicious. The weather was misty when there but there is a great terrace outside and at breakfast we were delighted by the rabbits hopping around the grounds. You can... More
