Came here on a family holiday and was greeted by a receptionist. She showed us around and was very helpful. There is a lovely lounge area that is always free with a nice chess board and comfy sofas. After that we went into the Muse room, the highest ranking room on the board. It says it was for four people... More

I wasn't staying in the hotel, but was walking in the area. Stopped by the hotel for lunch and sat in the beautiful beer garden, lots of picnic benches with umbrellas. Dog friendly too. Had to wait about an hour to order our food because this place prioritizes coach parties over normal customers. However myself and the rest of the... More

The hotel is superbly located and car parking is excellent. Our room was tiny! Had to move the chair to open the wardrobe and the en suite was not wide enough to be able to towel dry comfortably. We explained that we were attending a wedding reception at a hotel across the road, but were told that we would not... More

Thank you for your recent review after you had vacated the hotel. Dale Lodge is a small country house hotel. We try to accommodate all our guests requirements. But we do point out quite clearly that we do not have a night porter on duty after 12.30pm. As a couple of the larger hotels in the village do weddings we... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of June and had a lovely stay. A couple of issues to deal with first. My wife's boiled eggs were barely cooked at breakfast and there was a tendency to play quite loud music; as our room was directly above the restaurant, this was doubly annoying. Our room was very nice, with... More

For the first time in 8 years my husband & I were given a two night escape from the normality of family life. We had been looking forward to this break for our lovely friends wedding since February. To allow the relatives of the Bride and Groom first choice of staying at the wedding venue (The Wordsworth Hotel-lovely!) I researched... More

Offers a bit more than usual Lakeland accommodation. Nice rooms, though not all have views! Restaurant a bit quiet for evenings - though it is fine for breakfast. Tweedies is pretty good - probably the best bar in the village.

I went for afternoon tea with my mum and sister after hearing about this advertised on lakeland radio. We have never been so disappointed. My sister is a vegetarian so we rang in advance to inform them of this....when we arrived, there were three choices of sandwiches on the tray- ham & picallili, tuna & sweetcorn and egg mayonnaise. When... More

We stayed two nights at this quaint and lovely boutique hotel and we enjoyed it a lot. It's family run and everyone is helpful and friendly. We had a double standard room and although the bed was comfortable, we had some issue with the wifi (very slow). The room was tiny, more like a single than double, so was the... More
