We have just returned from a five day stay at the Regent Hotel, and what an amazing and welcoming stay it was. The food was outstanding, the room lovely and cosy, and the staff friendly and welcoming. A big thank you to our lovely Australian waitress, Jessica, who looked after us so well during our stay. She was a diamond.

We booked a 5 night break in the Lake District with our best friends and our first impressions with The Regent Hotel, was one of surprize, as to why the hotel only qualifies as 3*. On our arrival, the desk staff were very helpful and dealt with our booking efficiently. The hotel offers quality that well exceeds their current rating.... More

I came as a lone traveller. My room was pristine and had everything I could have wished for. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Compared to others I've stayed at in the lakes, this place stands out and felt very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent, especially the breakfast...a must visit for the lakes

What impressed us straight up was the welcome and the service provided by the staff. The rooms were standard, comfortable and clean. Breakfast, we'll just don't miss it, fabulous!!!! Close to the centre of town and of course right on the lake.

From the minute we walked in the hotel it was absolutely lovely. Reception staff were very helpful, bar staff and waiters were superb especially Julie the breakfast supervisor she was so cheerful and nothing was a bother. We booked the Sail Loft Suite and it was beautiful, absolutely immaculate and just as described. Perfect location looking over the water, lots... More

It's in a good location next to the waterfront, plenty of parking. Don't eat or drink in the hotel... Seriously over priced. The room was fine, nothing special, little things are annoying like the door to the bathroom not closing properly and the tv having no signal at all. Internet is too slow to stream anything. Wouldn't pay full price... More
