As many have written this hotel in beautiful setting, close to a river and its walk, we used this as a base for walking and sightseeing, from day one the staff were very helpful and diligent at all times, food selection at breakfast and in the Talbot bar was wide and cooked beautifully The bedrooms were set out well, our...

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Skelwith Bridge Hotel during this week. It has a really good location for several walks, we had done really good walks from the hotel with my partner. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, offered excellent service. The food was excellent too, especially the dinner in the restaurant. Breakfast was a great... More

Excellent location, stayed in a lovely room overlooking the back field.Had a traditional hearty breakfast and a dinner in the Talbot bar. We can highly recommend their steak & ale pie and the chicken burger. Staff was friendly & helpful, can't fault anything.On departure we booked for November to try their Turkey Festive Offer.I just hope for dry weather :)

This place is well hidden but is just idyllic. Friendly staff, clean spacious rooms, real ales, good quality food. Upon arrival we were made to feel so welcome and at home by all the team who could not have done more for us. Steak and ale pie in The Talbot was excellent As was the brekkie which really set us...

Stopped over whilst travelling from Edinborough to London for business and thought we would break up the journey for the kids with a quick stop over. As usual a friendly familiar welcome and brilliant service throughout. The sun even came out and we were able to explore the area a little and take advantage of the terrace outside with a... More

What a beautiful setting. What a sweet old Inn. But somehow it all doesn't work very well. It is run like a second thought by unsuitable youngsters. The food is neither original nor very good. Most lunch or dinner choices are fried something or other. This place has missed the boat in my opinion and would benefit from a total... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel last week. Great location just a short walk from Ambleside. Smart room with modern en-suite. Superb food with varied menu. Friendly staff. Ok so the TV has poor reception and wi fi is iffy but you are in the lakes and hardly the hotels fault. Live without it.

This was the first time we have stayed away with our baby as we were up in the Lakes for a wedding. Staff were all extremely helpful in making sure we were attended to and the room we had arranged was fantastic and completely suitable for staying with a child. Ample space and well equipped. We ate at the adjoining... More

Stayed here for two nights while attending wedding in Langdale. For the price I'd have expected more: our room was dated, food at the Talbot Bar was ok, wi-fi woefully inadequate, and TV reception almost non-existent. That said it's in a great location, staff very friendly, breakfast good, and it's nice to get away from TV and wi-fi. The reality... More
