This hotel is set in a beautiful spot. There are lots of walkers, families, friends re-uniting....the bar and restaurant offer a wide range of dinner possibilities. The staff is very helpful and professional. The rooms were luxurious (we had a superior double). Internet works best downstairs by reception. (Typical for this area).

Just back after a one night stay with friends. Hotel clean and comfortable, food amazing, friendly helpful staff. Superb location. Will definitely return again for a longer stay! The hotel is an ideal place to explore the Lake District.

This is our 3rd visit to this hotel and yet again it was fabulous. We've always stopped in the superior rooms which are very spacious and would definitely recommend room 11 with the double aspect windows and spa bath. The food has always been excellent and you never leave hungry. It's nice to see the same staff there every visit... More

From arriving to leaving we were treat with excellent service, friendly staff, fabulous food, and an overall feeling that they wanted us to enjoy our stay with them. The General Manager greeted us on arrival and always spoke to us as we past each other, he was a great role model for customer service.

To cut a long story short we have nothing negative to report. The hotel was spotless,the staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was fantastic. We also overheard... More

We have just returned from a lovely 1 night stay at this lovely hotel. The room was spotless, modern and comfortable - beautiful views even from the back of the hotel. We booked last minute, midweek, and only rang because a nearby hotel wouldn't let us stay just one night. No problem at the Skelwith Bridge. From the first phone... More

We've been coming to this hotel twice a year for long weekends for over 20 years. Old fashioned in a charming way, very clean rooms, lovely staff, fantastic food. Log fires. Literally park the car up and beautiful walks all around. A must visit.

Lovely hotel, great walks around the hotel, there is a pub adjacent to the hotel if you want a snack or bar food but the hotel also has its own restaurant which serves fabulous food. Rooms are lovely and come with tea and coffee facilities. Love this hotel

Our two night stay between Christmas and New Year brought back some wonderful memories of spending time at this Hotel 20 or so years ago. It has not lost its character, charm and excellent standards of service. It still has that wonderful homely feel with the added luxury of excellent food and attentive, friendly staff. Thanks for not changing your... More

We returned to this hotel on Boxing Day for our annual post Xmas break with friends and were impressed once more . The staff are really friendly and obliging ( Ken the Barman is a real star - and the pyrotechnic maestro at New Year ! ) They have 3 excellent real ales always available and the food is first...
