Upon arrival we met the receptionist, who gave us a warm welcome and a brief explanation of the layout of the hotel. A line that particularly resonated with us was 'everywhere is a bar, the lounges, your room...' an excellent start! We stayed in the humorously pronounced 'Regina', which is a good size and features a breathtaking view via a... More

We booked for lunch on Easter Friday as a treat to start a weekend in the Lakes. We were held up in traffic while travelling from home and we were late for our booked time. However, having phoned ahead we were immediately put at ease on arrival and sat in the lounge at a table at the bay window overlooking... More

We had the gourmet dinner and it was first rate in every way. We have been several times before and the service, food and overall ambience is excellent. One of the top two or three restaurants in the Lake District. Beautiful place.

The Sharrow bay is a lovely hotel in a really beautiful location by Ullswater in the lake district. I first visited with my wife on our Honeymoon in 1991 and was lucky enough to return in March this year. The hotel is under different ownership and to be honest was not as sharp or special as I remember but still... More

My wife and I enjoyed a superb, relaxing Sunday lunch at Sharrow Bay to celebrate her birthday. The weather was atrocious and cold but the hotel was wonderfully warm and welcoming with a lovely homely atmosphere. The staff were attentive but not at all oppressive and the friendly sommelier impressed us greatly with his detailed knowledge of the extensive wine... More

The service was wonderful and the food was exquisite unfortunately my waist line is not looking so good as I found it very hard to turn down any of the wonderful food during our... More

We were visiting some friends in the area and chose Sharrow Bay as something of a treat for ourselves. We had a friendly and efficient check-in experience and our bags were portered to our room. The room was in the main building and had character and charm; the bathroom was very nice with a separate shower and bath. The dining... More

Apparently Sharrow Bay was the first country house hotel in UK, and it still is the best after 65 years ! The refurbishments recently carried out have kept it at the top of the pile - great location, good service and probably the best dining experience ever - just don't plan to do any hard exercise after the sticky toffee...
