What an excellent place to stay! My wife and I fancied a couple of days walking in the Lakes and wanted somewhere to stay for the night that gave good B&B plus somewhere to have a nice meal in the evening. What a perfect choice! This is both a great, cosy pub with good beer and a wonderful small hotel.... More

We've just had a great two nights at The Coledale Inn! The staff were excellent - friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Food delicious! The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean even though dogs are allowed - you would never know there had been any in the room. Lovely and fresh, very nicely finished off, furnishings really good...

My random selection couldnt have been better. Arriving at about 8pm after 500 miles in the car we were... More

Impromptu night away booked via booked.com on a good deal after a walk around Derwentwater and up Cat Bells. Recently modernised the hotel is nicely situated at the top of the village of Braithwaite just down the road from Keswick. Nicely decorated room, comfy bed and powerful shower, what more do you need after a good Lakeland walk?. Food and... More

Stayed at the Coledale Inn for 2 nights with my husband. The room was really nice and clean, staff very friendly, helpful and polite. Would also recommend the food too. The outside seating area was nice with lovely views.

We have stayed here a number of times and are continually impressed by the staff and everything. The rooms are nice and are a decent size and the food... More

This was my first time staying in this part of the Lake District. The hotel is in a stunning location ran by amazingly friendly staff! The rooms are lovely - recently refurbished to an extremely high standard. Lots of the guests seem to return many times which speaks volumes. The breakfast and bar food were all of an excellent standard.... More
