My wife and I enjoyed our two night stay at the Waterhead hotel in Coniston and without hesitation would recommend it to others. The hotel is located just outside the centre of the village of Coniston but it is only a short stroll away. On the plus side, it has its very own lakeside location and a pleasant walk through...

Had a nice break but a few minor problems in the room. We were in room 22 , I see there is a review on here from May this year listing a few of the same problems, yet they still remain and they could easily be put right. The bed base looks old and scruffy with small holes in it,... More

Enjoyed our week due to the prime location of the hotel and the friendly staff. The food choices were fair for the size of the hotel and the quality mostly good with occasional disappointments. Breakfast is however more consistent and excellent value for money. The bedroom decor and finishings were good in one of the rooms and average in the... More

Booked room 6 which is a four poster room which has double aspect view one of the lake and one of the old man. On arrival at the hotel it appeared that they where under staffed and we eventually checked in. The room was large and spotless with a modern bathroom. The setting of the hotel is lovely with the...

I stayed here in this hotel with my husband and if all you are looking for is peace and quiet then this is the place. It was fully booked by mostly couples who enjoy walking and there are many walks in the area, you don't need the car once you've arrived! However if you want to visit other places in... More

In a great location, this is a quiet, traditional hotel. Good size rooms, friendly staff, just low key and relaxed. Just one word of warning, if other rooms have the same shower cubicle as Room 12, mind your head, particularly getting out of the cubicle. I cut the top my head coming out of the shower, mentioned it to the... More

We stayed for two nights in July, and had booked DBB via an online offer. We were not disappointed. It was exceptional value. It is a small friendly hotel with around 30 rooms. Dinner and breakfast is in a room with excellent views of the "old man" of Coniston. The rooms have been recently decorated. It was clean and looked... More

We only had one night at the hotel but it was very enjoyably. The hotel was lovely with very comfortable bedrooms. The location was great, just a few minutes to the shops, bars and restaurants. There was plenty of choice for breakfast which we followed up with a walk by the Lake. Who could ask for more?

We had our wedding at the Waterhead Hotel and it was excellent value for money and an amazing venue. Very helpful staff and great views of hills and Coniston water. We even went back for our anniversary the following year.
