We recently enjoyed a weeks holiday in the beautiful lake district and knowing how busy it gets on a Friday evening to get a meal we called in the afternoon to book a table for 7.30pm and spoke to a young man in the bar and he said he would book us in and showed us 2 different tables we... More

The gardens and hanging baskets are lovely, we had a fantastic view from our bedroom window. On the minus side, the annex steps need another rail and grab rail for... More

We stayed in the Brathay View Cottage that's just the other side of the car park for our holiday and had a couple of lovely quiet evenings here for our tea (The steak and ale pie is to die for !) Very warm and welcoming atmosphere, staff very friendly. We will definitely be back on our next visit to The... More

Spent 3nights in June (our 4th visit) and the whole team who work there are the most helpful people you could wish to meet. The food is out of this world and the rooms are very comfortable. The hotel is perfect for discovering the Lakes also plenty of walks near by.

Just returned from a 3 nt stay on a dbb deal. A lovely nice place, but our room not ideal. Partially our fault as we booked the grasmere suite which had no view and didn't suit us, so we asked for another room and had no choice but room 18. Large airy room, overlooking the field at the rear, unfortunately... More

We have used this hotel many times in the past as a base for visiting the Lake District. However we had not been for nearly eight years and were interested to see if it had changed, We discovered that there had been a change of ownership since we were last there although we did recognise two of the original staff....

In my top three favourite hotels of all time... and one that we will revisit time and time again. The food is out of this world, the staff friendly and helpful and dog friendly to boot. 11 out of 10! Best hotel in the Lakes.

Set in a stunning location, and it's great to find somewhere that caters for dogs rather than just tolerate them. The staff are lovely and friendly, and to our dogs delight located at the bar they sell hand made, meaty natural dog treats 10/10 Thank you.

Over the years we have stayed at the Skelwith Bridge a number of times. We have been with friends a few times and several times taken the family for extended weekend breaks. It is a quiet hotel (doors closed normally around 10.30 pm -ishIts strength is its restaurant and the size. It is a fairly small and intimate hotel and... More
