We stayed one night and found a warm welcome. Our bedroom was comfortable and clean. Before dinner we were able to enjoy the real log fire and catch up with local news. Dinner was enjoyable and the break fast in the morning was ample and very tasty. I would recommend this hotel and return in the future. Michael the owner... More

We spent one night here and the host was really welcoming as was the real fire in the bar. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable, looks like the shower room had been refurbished. Our room and the whole of the hotel was really clean. We ate in the restaurant and the selection of food available was varied and beautifully presented... More

Stayed here last nigh, lovely warm welcome on arrival. We were shown to our room which was a good size with a large bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi bath. The stay included a bottle of prosecco and breakfast, booked with bay vouchers. We had a meal last night which was delicious and reasonably priced. Nice lounge area with a log... More

My wife and i stayed at the Scarthwaite hotel for nearly a week in December after our new house was all but destroyed in the recent flooding. When we arrived we were greeted by the manager Michael who gave my wife a big hug, whipped us up some lovely food, lit the fire, washed our mud soaked clothes and gave... More

We stayed for two nights and loved it. The family are so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We ate at the hotel and the food was delicious. The surroundings of the hotel are lovely and Mike talked us through the local area and recommended routes. A perfect break- thank you! We can't think of a single thing we... More

I've just stayed two nights at Scarthwaithe - it's conveniently located just off the m6 and has free parking just outside the building. The room was great - nicely sized bed, all the little things like a hairdryer or tea set are here and there is enough space around the room for a suitcase. The bathroom is not looking brand... More

We were caught up in the recent downpour and floods in Cumbria and, not being able to reach the property we were supposed to be staying at in Grasmere as it, and the rest of the area was under water, we frantically searched online for somewhere to shelter for the night. We booked online at Booking.com but, because of the... More

Stayed at this hotel once before. Lovely setting, very close to M6 so ideal for stopover on way south. Dinner menu is extensive and food excellent. Good breakfast. Good value. Cleanliness is very good. First time we stayed we had a lovely spacious room with nice newly furnished en suite bathroom. However this time the room was very small and... More

This is a lovely hotel, not only as it is full of character and in a lovely location, but because the staff from the owner 'downwards' are so thoughtful. I arrived late but was able to order a meal in advance, which was delicious and very reasonably priced. In the morning I was going to a funeral and to save... More

This hotel is set just outside Lancaster, which can be reached by local bus at the end of the drive. Hotel is cosy and comfortable. Our room was smallish but very clean, attractive, had a nice smell and lovely soft towels! We had an evening meal which was OK, not great but not bad. Breakfast was quite good, but ended... More
