Stayed for two nights last year, excellent accommodation, friendly staff, nicely furnished rooms and spotlessly clean. Food and drink selection downstairs was excellent, would recommend and visit again!

We had a room in the annex next door which was clean, modern with avery comfortable bed. The menu choice was great. We shared the chateaubriand, it was absolutely awesome. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The breakfast before we... More

Just spent three midweek nights at the Queens Head and can thoroughly recommend this hotel. The bar and restaurant area are all cosy fires and beams and wooden floors and in contrast our superior double room was very stylish with a contemporary bathroom. It was a very good size. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was hearty. We... More

I booked the superior room as a surprise for my boyfriends 30th birthday. After a long, super fun day at GoApe, Grizedale, we drove to The Queenshead and received a warm welcome. We checked in and got escorted to our room which was beautiful and lived upto every expectation. Very cosy and well furnished. I wish we could have spent... More

A gorgeous pub with a lovely open fire. Very clean and staff very welcoming. Food is absolutely excellent. Can highly recommend the fish and chips. Didn't stay at the hotel but the communal areas looked lovely and again very clean. A must try if in Hawkshead.

Recent stay here was very enjoyable. Clean rooms, friendly staff and high quality food. Not sure about the paintings of uniformed dogs all round the restaurant that didn't seem to fit in with the up market ambience that seems to be the target!
