We booked to stay in a double room at this hotel at least two months in advance. When we arrived, after a long drive, we were shown to a terrible grotty and shabby room on the ground floor, which didn't even have a double bed (just two beds pushed together). The furniture was old, looked like it'd be scratched repeatedly... More

Why wait a year to comment on our hotel if it was that bad, I must agree our corridors and lounge bar did need decorating but have both been done since your visit and are looking great. All our bedrooms and bathrooms have been refurbished, in fact the bedroom and bathroom you were in the room had only been finished... More

My wife and I have stayed here numerous times on their 5 night package. It's such a lovely place with warm and friendly staff and management. The location is superb but it's the dining experience that makes this unique. The locally sourced food, cooked by a chef who cooked for royalty on HMS Britannia, is of an exceptionally high standard... More

We had a great weekend camping near the New Dungeon Ghyll and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings spent in the New Dungeon Ghyll. We were made really welcome and enjoyed the amazing atmosphere, especially on our second night when there was live music. Very clean toilets. Highly recommended. Will definitely visit again! A 'must visit'!

We always assumed that this was just a hotel, however after a long day's walking in beautiful sunshine, the adjacent pub was full, so we thought we would just see if the hotel served food. How glad we were! They now have a walker's bar, with a unique beer only available here, and gorgeous food. The staff service was exemplary.... More

This was the third time we have stayed here for a winter break of 5 days. At the foot of the Langdale Pikes it is wonderfully located for fell-walking, climbing and touring. The accommodation is to a high standard with excellent service. The food is to a very good standard.

Had been 3 years ago and apart from the refurbishment nothing had changed, staff as friendly and the was excellent. The Sticky toffee pudding is to die for. We had fair weather all week so followed the walks out of the hotel. So the car never moved until it was time to come home. Will certainly return in the future... More
