We arrived to a very warm welcome and personally shown to our room. The Rydal room overlooking Rydal water. Our room was huge with a four poster bed and a bathroom just as huge with a large corner bath. We went down to the pub for lunch which was prepared to our liking. The chef was outstanding all weekend and... More

A wonderful old world character hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the hotel and bar. Good freshly prepared food. Perfect location for walks, to Rydal caves, around Rydal water, Rydal Hall, Dora's field etc. No need to move the car unless touring. About a mile to Ambleside, a little further to Grasmere. We used the spa at Langdale, very... More

We found all the Staff friendly and helpful, the room was warm and comfortable. Menu was very good value for money, could not eat full English breakfast two days on the trot, too much, but porridge on second day was to die for! Location could not be better for walking and access to nearby lakes and busy Bowness.

We have just had 3 nights on an Amazon local break here, in this hotel which is in a superb location, full of character and one of the friendliest we have visited (natural friendliness, not corporate trained smiles). We are lakes regulars, though often in a caravan, but felt the Amazon local offer too good to miss. The hotel is... More

The Glen Rothay Hotel is perfect for a relaxing break in the Lake District. We stayed in the Kentmere suite which was very comfortable, spacious and has wonderful dual aspect views both over Rydal Lake and 'Dora's Field' which when we visited mid March was covered in daffodils - beautiful. The staff are all very welcoming, accommodating and down to... More

We have just returned from another relaxing break in the lovely Glen Rothay Hotel. Once again the hotel lived up to all our expectations in every respect. We were warmly welcomed by the staff - they clearly take a pride in their work, the hotel and in making people feel at home and relaxed. The room was comfortable, the breakfast... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay using an Amazon deal. This little gem is superb, from the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm friendly face. We brought along our pet dog which was no trouble at all and the staff really make you feel at ease. The bedroom was lovely and clean with a gorgeous view... More

Picked up a deal on Amazon Local for a 2 night stay including a three course meal and it proved a bargain. Our room was a fair size and very tastefully decorated. We also had a decent tv in the room with some freeview news channels. The three course meal was very good and I should mention the excellent choices... More
