This place has so much potential, a wonderful building, a magnificent view, lovely, well kept garden, quiet country location and on the gateway to the Lakes. But it doesn't appear to be able to take advantage of this and so seems to struggle which is a great pity. Needs a big dose of investment, some interior design input and some... More

We booked this hotel looking for a relaxing stop over to break up our journey coming back from a wedding in Scotland. Having been in the car for 6 hours and running late we found the hotel very accommodating. The guy on reception was only too happy to help with our late check in and then proceeded to make two...

We stayed here last month as part of a family wedding. Hotels tucked away in the beautiful countryside and the hotel itself was lovely. Our room was a little on the small side, and even with a (slightly) subsidised rate for being part of the wedding party, the room was a bit on the expensive side. We also woke up... More

Stopped overnight on the way the Scotland. Highly recommended. The most lovely welcoming staff, a fabulous setting, relaxed atmosphere, a very comfortable room, spotlessly clean, a window that opens, fresh air, blissfully comfortable bed and a fine breakfast. What more could you ask for? Free Wifi? They have that.

A beautiful setting with excellent views to the fells and the pennines. This hotel is setup and obviously makes its money doing weddings but is also an excellent country house hotel. The room was at the front with great views and a recently modernised bathroom with an excellent shower. I was a little disappointed the the room was boutique-sized and... More

We broke our journey from Derbyshire to New Lanark at Penrith, and were very happy that we chose Roundthorn. From the welcome on reception, through to the friendly chat with the gardener/handyman on departure, the staff were without exception polite, friendly and helpful. Not a large hotel, but the rooms were very spacious and well-maintained, as were the grounds. A... More

My wife and I were guests at a wedding in mid June, and to be direct, The Roundthorn was perfect in every respect. Adding some objectivity to this acclaim my wife is a professional Cordon Bleu with considerable experience of high-end large scale events, and to be frank, I am not accustomed to dishing out plaudits on a casual basis!...
