I love this place. We're staying in room 8 which is beautiful. When we first checked in I told my wife it's decorated just like I'd like our house to be. There are excellent and well thought out finishing touches everywhere. The staff are all very pleasant, friendly and efficient. The bar and restaurant are excellent too. I'm sure the... More

The staff are welcoming and the room we were booked into was absolutely beautiful. Dinner in the restaurant was a 3 course taster meal. We Choose... More

We stayed as a couple plus 13 Year old and labradoodle. Good easy check in, we have visited before so love the open lounge areas, bar and restaurant. The room was ready and was ideal for what we wanted, although if I was the MD or GM I would be asking the painters why the finishes round the sink weren't... More

Recently spent 3 nights at the Wild Boar Inn for my wife's birthday. When looking for a note in the Lake District, I wanted something a little different, so with its own Smokehouse and brewery, this placed fitted the bill nicely. The hotel is located a few miles out of Bowness and it quite isolated but that suits us. Upon... More

I stayed in the Inn on 27 August 2014, overall it was extremely disappointing, we had 2 rooms one of which had no shower only a very small bath. On speaking to reception they advised that they were fully booked and so there was nothing they could do. Subsequently the manager moved me to the room 10 which was booked... More

I stayed at the wild boat in for three nights with my daughter. we stayed in the spotted swine suite. The woods out the back were great for walking, we had our dog jasper stay with us and that was great too. Breakfast, and evening meals were good hospitality great too. My only complaint was that the rather small bed... More

I cannot fault this place at all. Maybe the large G&T is a bit pricey at over £10 but I suppose that's the inkeeping price with The Lakes. This is my second stay and I'm booking again for a week in October. Love it!

We stopped there by change and absolutely loved it. We were able to try their own beers, the food was fresh and tasty and the service was perfect. We plan on being back and maybe try the hotel too next time as I'd love to see their breakfast!

My husband and I have stayed several times now and each time have stayed in different rooms, each one individually decorated and excellent. We have just stayed for our 4th wedding anniversary in the bridal suite. Beautiful room, amazing food, great service and peaceful.
