The Elleray is our favourite hotel and staying there has become our traditional way of celebrating the New Year. This was our 3rd year in a row visiting the Lakes for New Years, staying in the Elleray each time. Each year we have never been let down and it is the perfect get away for a short break in the...

The Beer and the Food were great. The atmosphere was good and the Fire in the main Lounge was nice. However the Language from some customers and also the Bar Manager was a bit too much. When there are Women and Children around this should not be allowed in a place like the Elleray. It's a shame

If you like a good pint of beer you may be better off to DRINK SOMEWHERE ELSE!! First of all I need to say that I love the lake district....it's one of the reasons I live here! For me the best part of the Lake District, apart from the Fells and Lakes is the good quality local food and beer.... More

Easy to find & we were lucky, given a parking permit. Mums lunch was huge - and breakfasts were superb, staff very welcoming, friendly & happy to oblige. Both rooms were adequate.. minus & pluses.. Adam (landlord) was more than happy to discuss any concerns we had. Would rate this B&B as a 3 - with potential for four *... More

After reading the reviews and looking over the pictures of the rooms when booking, I was really disappointed with the room. The pictures must have been taken about 5 years ago because the room is full of damp, dust, dirt and a very strange smell. After returning after a busy day at the lakes and fancied a shower shame I... More

My girlfriend and I booked last minute for the bank holiday weekend. We were greeted by a warm atmosphere and enjoyed local ales, HUGE portions in the restaurant and a comfy stay. We will certainly be staying again and recommending to friends. Thanks

We stayed at the B and B part to the Elleray for three nights. Our room was very good for the price we paid. It could benefit from a slight make over in some areas. The parking could be an issue due to circumstances outside of their control whereby two out of three of the rooms at the B and... More
