This hotel was a quiet refuge and provided a peaceful, enjoyable and restful stay in this area. The staff were friendly, helpful, caring and very obliging. Breakfast was wonderful, varied and delicious. The hotel is close to the city but transport is needed to get about. There is a huge number of attractions within the area as well as many... More

My wife and I were staying at the HPB property down the road and decided to eat here on a Monday night. The food was very good (the lamb in particular) and the beer was also excellent. They book the table for the evening for you so there is no rushing you out for another sitting. We liked it so... More

We have just returned from a 'too short' stay in the Lake District which included attending a family wedding. Middle Ruddings is a lovely small hotel and good value for money. The food is great - large portions, good quality and selection and lots of choice for those with special dietary needs. Special mention to Liz's homemade muesli. The rooms... More

We have eaten at the Middle Ruddings many times because they are so friendly and welcoming of both us and our dog, but this was the first time we have stayed, having persuaded two sets of our friends from the South to sample the delights of the Lake District. We stayed for three nights at the beginning of August and... More

Stayed at middle ruddings in June. Our second visit and travelled with friends. Had same room as last time and it was ok, comfy bed, old fashioned room but we like it. Gorgeous views. Food was great, huge portions too big for me. It did say on web that you could ask for smaller helpings, I did and was told... More

Just enjoyed a lovely stay, very homely, warm hospitality from all staff, and loved how dog friendly it was (though our pooch was left behind this time). Great breakfast - home made muesli, scrambled egg and sausage as the highlights. Cosy bar for our after dinner entertainment. This place helped make the Lakes District a winner for us.

Good value, good food, great breakfast, real ales and friendly staff. Great base for walking in the the Northern Lakes and Keswick 10 minutes away in the car. The local pubs were good for us to watch the World Cup on big screen. Will return

I'll start on the lows and finish with the highs. Our bathroom had a jacuzzi bath which turned out to be just a bath, a slight disappointment after a day in the hills but not a big deal. The TV in the room was the size of a postage stamp! Not conducive to watching Wimbledon or the World Cup but,... More

Nice little hotel and pub- Clean - The staff are very friendly- food is excellent we had the evening meal on the first night steaks cooked to perfection - I can recommend this venue for a quiet break-- Keswick is 2 miles away and easy to reach.

The staff, particularly the owner, were great and the selection of real ales was excellent. The rooms were a little old and run down, but everything was clean and the shower was good in our room. Braithwaite is a lovely place to stay - we ate in the hotel on the first night and then in two other local pubs,... More
