Excellent beer, food and staff. Bar slightly bare looking, but perfectly functional. A great pub, whether you've walked or not. Thwaites beers well kept. Food mostly usual pub grub but apparently prepared by someone who cares. Staff light hearted but professional.

This hotel has a stunning location and that is the reason it does so well. The rooms were good, spacious and comfortable with a good shower. The food and welcome were not up to expectations. The staff are very efficient but during a 2 day stay there was no chat except what was necessary to get through the business of... More

We had a 3 night stay, 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast on a deal and an additional night B+B.To be honest we only really expected a pub with rooms. From the warm welcome to our departure, promising to ourselves to return, we were delighted with this small well run hotel. We knew the location to be good and it... More

Lovely hotel, ideal for walks and relax in the evening. Good value for money, bed breakfast and evening meal. Food is of high quality, staff friendly. Dining room just lets it down needs to be updated. But would still visit again in the summer.

A midweek Monday to Friday stay with Dinner Bed and Breakfast. Location in the Langdale Valley with Fell walks from the door. Excellent cooked Breakfasts and four course Dinners with large packed lunches to order. Rooms improved a lot since our last stay in 2003…Excellent service and relaxing evenings in the Lounge. A destination in itself.

We have just returned from a trip to the New Dungeon Ghyll when we celebrated my husband's 70th birthday. The hotel was great and we stayed in the Garden Room which was excellent and of course the position of the hotel is wonderful.

We stayed one night after a long walk, went to the bar for some food (Quite pricey) and drinks the bar staff need to smile abit more. And they had there staff meeting right next to us. Was hard not to over hear everything. Felt like we were part of it lol. Other than that nice stay.

We have a few days here with a group of friends to relax, eat, drink, talk and walk in the area in late February or early March. We find the staff really friendly, helpful and patient. The food is wonderful, all made on the premises and always includes good veggie options. The lounge, with a wood burning stove, is the... More
