Have stayed here several times, just keep coming back. Lovely, welcoming, great staff, comfortable I could just keep adding. Its the first visit since the rooms were refurbished, wow ,our room (18 The Mews ) was bigger than some of the self catering accommodation we've used. A real gem of a place.

Our first visit..but not our last. We spent five days over New Year with famly at this Lake District favourite and had a cracking time. To say the Coledale is dog-friendly is like saying Oliver Reed liked a drink. Dogs, dogs and yet more dogs. But our canine chums only add to the fabulous ambience with the staff led by... More

Thanks to Gary, Carole and all the staff for a great stay over the New Year period. Food was excellent as always. New Year's evening meal was really good and it isn't often that all the guests are firing balloons across the room in between courses! Fireworks at midnight were great and full marks to Geoff for doing them in... More

It was just what we needed after a long day on the fells. The food in the pub was also superb, we both had the steak... More

Stayed for the 2nd time at the Coledale Inn...both times absolutely SUPERB. Staff really lovely, rooms gorgeous, dogs welcome, food delicious...and the bar (real ale) really welcomes everyone including 4 legged friends too...even during food service. I am almost reluctant to recommend, in case I can't get a booking in the future!! Dog owning hill walkers...you'd be mad to go... More
