Rooms was very clean with character and toilets also very nice. Staff were also very helpful - the bar man made an extra effort to entertain our daughter who had got... More

We just had a quick stop over and wanted some thing on route. This turned out to be spot on. We actually had room 12 which turned out to be the top floor of a Lakeland Cottage, with full kitchen, lounge and modern bathroom. Don't miss the walk up Loughrig Terrace from the gate across the road. It's a must... More

Only stayed one night and didn't want to leave. We had the only room with a balcony. The staff were friendly and helpful and absolutely nothing was a bother. Rooms were cleaned to a very high standard with not one spec of dust. The room was very spacious with seating area directly at the window. Food was amazing and the... More

We have just come back from a 3 night stay at this 400 yo hotel. It is in a great location for every type of walker - it has various difficulty walks and stunning views all around. The Rydal Hall is right next to it with the beautiful waterfalls and the best tea and cake cafe. The hotel did a... More

I visited here with my partner for a long weekend as we were visiting a wedding at a venue near by. Upon arrival the staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was comfortable and very spacious. The rooms had all the facilities you would need, were warm and not at any point did we hear any noise from other rooms.... More

Everything we eat the hotel was delicious. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Will be returning,... More

We spent the May Bank Holiday at Glen Rothay, staying 3 nights with our two dogs. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. The location is wonderful with tranquil walks on the doorstep and history in abundance. We ate each evening in the Badger Bar where our dogs were allowed... More

I stayed here with lots of friends to celebrate a birthday, whilst enjoying the fabulous area. The staff made our stay memorable, they were friendly, helpful and made out stay special. They went out of their way to facilitate us. The hotel was close enough to Ambleside to jump in a taxi to enjoy a meal out too. Lovely facilities-... More
