As my wife had a day off work we decided to have a last minute break and after a quick search opted for the Lake District which is about a 2 hour drive from our home. We picked the Waterhead Hotel, Coniston after reading a few reviews. The hotel was perfect for a relaxing night away from home. Our room... More

Just returned from 2 night stay at the Waterhead Hotel. This was a competition prize, what a great prize it was. The staff where friendly, professional and helpful. A good choice awaited us at breakfast, hot food was hot and the full English was excellent. Some parts of the Hotel could do with a little TLC, but our room was... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Waterhead Hotel in Coniston. The room had a lovely lake view. The bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless, even though a little old fashioned this is in keeping with the period of this Hotel. A good selection of breakfast items available, and orders taken as there was a good choice for the... More

My partner and I have just returned from a lovely one night stay at the Waterhead hotel. As a treat for my partners birthday I booked a room for one night with breakfast. The Welcome on arrival was warm and sincere. The room was spacious, clean, tastefully decorated with an enormous bed, which gave us both a very comfy nights... More

Our welcome to the hotel, in it's beautiful surroundings, was friendly. The breakfast was good, and, as I let them know ahead of time, suited our dietary requirements to the most part. The breakfast room had a lovely view of the mountains (and car park). As the name suggests, the hotel is set near the water (and I think there... More

Spent 2 nights at the Waterhead for our honeymoon. Our room was large, clean, with an enormous bed and a good view out towards the lake. It was, however, really quite dated, and lacked atmosphere - a few pictures on the walls would have helped. The corridors and staircases were a bit tatty and echoey, and reminded me of a... More

We (my wife and I) stayed here over the weekend of 6/7 June 2015. We were in the hotel as guests at a Wedding of one of our relations. The Hotel was very clean. comfortable and the staff including the manager Laura, were without exception excellent. The food and the facilities within the Hotel were excellent also. This is a...

Stayed here in a Friday night after long trip up to take part in a charity walk on sat before heading home again. Hotel staff are super friendly and helpful. It's an old hotel with lots of character and squeaky staircases (which I liked). Had an offer and managed to get a family room with a great view of the... More

A warm, family welcome greeted us & our beloved terrier. We were part of a large family booking but also treated as individuals. The lounge bar is divided & doubled as a reception. At times this caused minor delays but nothing patience couldn't handle. The large oak staircase ascends to 2 floors of various rooms. There is also a lift... More
