Lovely hotel, very reasonable and owner couldn't be more helpful. Stayed after a visit to Lancaster only a few minutes drive away. Great range of wildlife in the woods and down by the river. Only negative was we didn't see the Otters!!

Easy access from M6 for overnight stop-over. Had small double which ample for one night with compact shower room. Very clean, generous tea tray & all usual ammenities. Restaurant was superb. Freshly cooked, home made meals, so welcome after a long journey & much nicer than a burger/pizza joint or motorway equivalent. Good wifi, easy parking. Peaceful setting provided a... More

What a lovely hotel! We stayed in 'Cedar' room; it was lovely! Spotless rooms, the bathroom was beautiful with a spa bath and separate shower unit. We stayed for an evening meal and we weren't disappointed; it was beautiful! All in all, a fantastic weekend!

We used this as a stop over for a trip to Edinburgh. The staff were friendly and the room comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good quality. This (I believe) is a 2 star hotel and worth the money paid. I also believe you can take dogs so may return for a visit in the future.

Popped in as we were passing and looking for somewhere to have lunch. First impression was great, nice looking building and surroundings. We received a friendly welcome when we asked if we could have lunch. The inside of the building did not match my first impression, it could do with being freshened up. This did make us think twice about... More

I booked this hotel at the end of a full itinerary without taking the usual care to read many of the TA reviews and, instead, going by its overall 4.5 rating. Lesson learned. TA ratings are sometimes more about the enthusiasm of its reviewers rather than the actual level of accommodation. This is a case in point. I'd rate the... More

I had a lovely stay at the Scarthwaite Hotel for business last week. My room was very clean and comfortable, very hot shower and fluffy towels. Food was adequate, nothing flash, but all that is needed. Michael went out of his way to ensure my business trip went smoothly, and as I didn't have a car he even drove me... More

Booked on room only for 3 nights at a very reasonable rate. Very comfortable and well-equipped room although it looks a bit dated. We even had a fan heater. Location ideal for us but might be a little out of the way for some. Would definitely consider booking again.

We had a lovely overnight break here last weekend. The staff were young and quiet, but well mannered and helpful. There is a distinct "old building" smell in the foyer, but thankfully this did not continue into the rooms. Our room was clean, modern with all the little things you would expect and free wifi. We had our evening meal... More
