Third stay at Skelwith, staff, food, rooms all good. It offers excellent value for money. My preferred room is No 15 but any of the deluxe rooms give you a bit more space. The area is great for walking right from the door enabling a car free few days. Looking forward to returning in the future.

Food OK but nothing fantastic. Service very good. Deluxe double was a bit pokey and came with a tiny TV. Best thing about this Hotel is the location - the bar is quite goods and they have a nice log fire in the lobby you can sit round before / after a meal.

Stayed last weekend. Comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Great food in the restaurant. Ideal spot for walking and visiting surrounding beauty spots. A great walk along the river to Elterwater straight from hotel is a must. Be sure to visit Chesters next door for good food and brilliant gifts. We had booked a king size bed room. Bed was amazing...

We now stayed a couple of times for the - All Year Madness Special Offer - 2 night Dinner Bed & Breakfast package. Its rare to find a hotel that allows a family dog to stay too, but this hotel was very welcoming. On both occasions, the bedrooms (10 and then 15) were ideal and very spacious. The evening meals...

This is a well run 3 star hotel in a beautiful part of The Lakes. You can park your car up and enjoy some great walks and pubs on the way. The hotel ticks all the boxes for comfort and a relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in room 11 this time which was clean and large although dated in places. The... More
