We made this as a last inure 2 night booking and were impressed with the write ups so decided to try it. We were given a room on the top floor which was lovely, quiet and spotless. The staff at the hotel were fabulous and made us feel welcome. From check in to check out the whole experience was a... More

We stayed for one night this month on the way home from Scotland (didnt want to have to drive any further!!) The Churchill Inn is clean and tidy with friendly staff. The carpark leaves a little to be desired - although we were reliably informed by the young man behind the bar - they had managed to get a van... More

Churchill Inn gives the impression on booking sites of being a classic Lake District Hotel. It isn't, it is a sport bar with rooms. Very noisy even on the top floor. Paper thin walls which allow you to hear everything people say. Expect to be awake all night from the bass coming up from the bar, the shouting of the... More

After squeezing into a rediculously narrow driveway we came to find the 'car park' full with no room to turn around!!! Pulling up here we felt nothing but dread, looks so tired!! There was a bouncer on the door of the pub directly underneath, (hardly what you want for a relaxing break in the lakes) needless to say we did... More

Staff - brilliant, polite, helpful, friendly, welcoming - all they should have been. Food - only had the breakfast, cereal followed by full English but is was really good. Room - bit on the tiny side, shower did not work in the first room so we were then moved into a new room where the shower head was full of... More

Just spent 2 nights here and were very well looked after by Corey. Even though we arrived very early, it wasn't too much trouble and luckily our room was ready anyway. We were on the third floor so noise from the bar wasn't a problem. Not ideal for those seeking a tranquil B&B but perfect for us being right in... More

We have just arrived back from a few days in the lakes. We stayed at the Churchill inn. On the plus side the staff were lovely and most helpful.also we had a great view of the fell. The breakfast was delicious. However, our room was on the top floor and quite a haul up to our room. The room was... More

Visited with teenager and 11 year old, hadn't realised it was a sports bar, very noisy. We did ask for a room on the top floor but were given 1st floor directly above bar at the front even though there were empty rooms. However, apart from the negatives, the staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious

Read the reviews and the Car Park lets the plaice down, if you manage to find a space, don't move your car until you leave, also can be noisey till very late. Room was nice and clean, with everything we needed. Good breakfast, and served quickly
