This was our first visit to New Dungeon Ghyll hotel and it exceeded our expectations in every area. From arrival we were greeted by a lovely girl who showed us to our room and where everything was in the hotel. The room had stunning views, and a four poster bed and beautiful furnishings. The walkers bar served hearty home cooked... More

We visited again in early December and were stranded by the storm. No great hardship. We enjoyed the lounge we never normally have time to sit in and waded to the old dungeon ghyll - what an expedition Room was lovely food great and welcome warm as usual

I have been to the new dungeon ghyll hotel many times and I do not beleave Rebecca would be rude to any customer I have always found Rebecca very easy to deal with what more can you say the people who complained must have got out of the wrong side of the bed

We stayed at New Dungeon Ghyll for 4 nights over Christmas and had a wonderful break. Every aspect from initial booking, through reception and facilities, to the staff and fare were first class. Our room was comfortable, warm and with marvellous views. Meals were of a high standard, imaginatively created, presented very well and all the seasonal extras were there... More

A very comfortable stay. We stayed in a standard double room with en suite facilities along with our dog. We were all made very welcome. The hotel was warm and was kept cosy using wood burning stoves. Decoration was good throughout. We ate in the restaurant on both nights of our stay and the 5 course traditional menu was excellent...

You might think I don't stay anywhere else given that I've written reviews of the NDG already but I do. I guess I'm not moved to write reviews about other places. Once again though, a great stay. We enjoyed two perfect nights in the week before Christmas - a great way to escape the shopping-fest. This year the weather was... More

We were frozen and soaked after a walk up to stickle tarn in a snow blizzard. Wood burning stove soon warmed us up along with some very nice Lakeland beers. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere and we were grateful that were still welcome despite being absolutely soaked and were dripping puddles in the floor (sorry guys) Nice spot and would like... More

This is a great pub in a fantastic location in the Lake District. It is a very welcoming pub serving good home cooked food and good beer. The evening menu was not extensive but the food was very tasty and decent value. The cooked breakfast was also very tasty a pity the price didn't include tea or coffee
