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

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).

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
