Booked here after looking for dog friendly hotels in the Lake District. We loved it. Nice room, lovely breakfast, great location, great staff. What more do you need. Our wee dog was able to join us in the bar for breakfast and she was allowed in the bar before 6 pm and after 9 pm for drinks. Would certainly book... More

An excellent hotel beautifully furnished with friendly and helpfull staff. The Superior Garden Romm which we had was really superb and worth the price paid. The breakfasts were very good and plentifull but you did not always get what you ordered. e.g. Day 2 ordered two soft boiled eggs but received one. Day 5 ordered two hard boiled eggs with... More

Very nice and friendly hotel, perfect for short walks to Steamers and waters edge, Restaurant expensive for what it delivered but friendly and helpful staff. Look outside for cheaper and better meal deals.

Our stay at The Regent was lovely, from the off. A warm welcome from the receptionist to a friendly smile from the very efficient cleaners. How many hotels do you get a greeting from at least one member of the owner family each day. The rooms are spacious even the annexe building in the court yard we stayed in with... More

My husband, dog and I stayed here for three nights during the last week and had a great time. The staff were delightful, helpful and kind. Our only problem was that our bath was very high so it was a climb to get in for a shower. As I have mobility problems this was a bit of an issue but... More

This isn't the first time we have stayed here. Brilliant staff, fantastic food and good location. If the size of your bed is important check with the reception before booking. They have different Room options. We didn't and were given a lovely double room, but the bed was too small for us. The staff did their up most to change... More

We have known the Regent for several years and know that we will always find the same friendly and relaxed place, lovely staff and comfortable rooms. Breakfast is fantastic, lots of choice and is served until midday. Bar meals are available, also dinner in the restaurant. Would like to see more choice on the restaurant menu but that is the...

My husband and I recently took a short break in the Lake District staying three nights at the Regent Hotel by the Lake. On arrival we were dealt with promptly and efficiently by the friendly staff and shown to our room. The room itself was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with good quality bedding and towels. The only negative point... More

It was a busy weekend with the Great North Swim. Having had lunch there we dropped by the Regent for dinner as the restaurant in the hotel we were staying at was very noisy The restaurant was full but we were offered dinner in the bar which was perfectly acceptable. However the staff then found us a table in the... More

Stayed for one night at The Regent Hotel in Sail Loft. I felt really comfortable & welcome & would definitely stay again. When booking the room, the female I spoke to was very polite & friendly & helped with advice about each room. Arrived & greeted by Zach (I think) very welcoming & polite. Our room was beautiful, great view... More
