Incredible location, wonderful atmosphere. Although the owners have changed, the place is still as magic as it used to be. The new owner is very kind and helpful, the rooms are splendid and the food delicious. And the view is fantastic as the hotel is the only one along a lake that is quite inaccessible (so, not touristy) but very... More

Stayed here for one night recently, lovely surprise when we were showed into the room - just like the descriptions online, excellent quality, beautiful views. We had a family room, not knowing what to expect I was surprised to have a four poster bed, with two single beds also, at the front of the house, and an amazing view over... More

We booked a last minute easter holiday at Dale Head Hall, what a pleasant surprise after simply booking the only hotel with an available family room in the county. I love the lakes, but hate how busy it always is, this fantasticly located hotel stands in it's own grounds right by lake Thirlmere on the road between Ambleside and Keswick... More

My partner and I just couldn't face going home from the Lakes. So we searched the internet for a hotel that could provide us with a room there and then. I telephoned the family run Dale Head Hall, which overlooks Thrilmere just outside of Keswick and we were immediately offered a room at a discounted price. Even before we entered... More

We loved our three nights at the Dale Head. Stunning views of Thirlmere and we even had visits from the local deer at dinner and breakfast. plenty of other wildlife about. Our room (11) was large with great views and its own patio. Dinners were varied and enjoyable - good value too. Breakfasts provided a very good start to the... More

We stayed here on our wedding night and have to say our special day was made even more so after spending a night here. Our room overlooked the lake and had the perfect combination of olde world charm and sophisticated luxury. Parts of the hotel are clearly very very old giving the place a wonderful atmosphere. Perfect for walkers (... More

I actually quite liked it here. I don't want to go on and on so I'll say it how it is and be truthful. This place is not for everyone. It's quite out of the way even though it's off a main road and not up the lanes or anything. It is the only property on the lake so feels... More

I arrived in the dark and had to ask for directions as the sat nav directs you to some cottages half a mile away but once I arrived I knew that the view tomorrow morning would be worth it....and it was was. We got upgraded to a room with a lakeside view which would otherwise be well worth the money.... More
