We stayed at the Ullswater Hotel after booking tickets to a show in the Pavillion on the spur of the moment, just a week before. Not many hotels were available on Booking.com, but the Ullswater was the cheapest. We did wonder what we might find, after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, but needn't have worried! We arrived at lunchtime, and... More

Very good facilities including dining room and good food. Rooms very old fashioned with blankets instead of quilts. No toilet brush as they said it was a health and safety issue now! . Great pity it is not more current as families are welcome and the staff in the dining rooms were very efficient and charming. Not a bad stay... More

we have just come home after a lovely 4 night break at the Ullswater where we were so pleasantly surprised at this hotel as it should be a 3 star, thanks to the room(2) which was so clean with clean towels every day and adequate teas and coffees. It was so roomy and at the front of the hotel and... More

Ok for a short stopover but parking was not available and the facilities were limited. Nice clean rooms with pleasant atmosphere. Good breakfast and average service. Beach and town centre only a 15 minute walk.

We stayed at the Ullswater for a 4 night break last week and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of both the bedrooms and the food served - considering it's rating as a 2 star hotel. We had a good sized room at the front of the hotel which is located in a quiet street, therefore very little traffic... More

We have just returned from a four day break at this lovely hotel. Big room and spotlessly clean. All staff were helpful and location was perfect. We had breakfast and evening meal too, the breakfast was varied and plentiful, evening meals also varied and tasty with more than adequate choice, fresh and different vegetables every evening, certainly not microwaved!

Stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. Managed to park on the road outside as the hotel has limited spaces. Very friendly welcome. Pleasant room for a 2star hotel. Breakfast was very good. Plenty of staff serving so service was very good. For the price I found this good value for money in a good location.

Decided to go to Bournemouth on a late booking Saturday night break. Being Bournemouth in August a lot of accommodation booked up and very expensive. The hotel is in a very convenient central location for the sea and town centre. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. Not a big room but then is adequate as a place to... More

Once again our 2 week break at the Ullswater from 26th July was fantastic, good sized clean room, good food both for breakfast and evening meal. Staff waiting on tables very professional, reception service very good. Well located for beach and bus routes, we had a lovely holiday thank you everyone at the Ullswater we will be back next year.
