I'm trying to think of a reason why I should not give the Eltermere Inn an excellent mark. For over 40 years I've visited the Lake District, climbed all over the world and stayed in some fantastic hotels. The Eltermere Inn is up there with the best of them - romantic location in the heart of the Lakes, very friendly... More

After checking availability and prices for the nearby Langdale estate my wife suggested we stay at the Eltermere Inn instead. Which having a spent a couple of nights here I am very pleased we did. A minute or so from the village, it has beautiful uninterrupted views of Elterwater. The welcome was friendly and were offered tea and homemade cake... More

Just back from our third visit to the Eltermere and can't wait to go back again. We've always been made to feel very welcome by the staff and Mark, the owner, was always around for a chat as we returned from a day on the fells. The gardens are looking fantastic and the kitchen garden is a great addition to... More

After reading a review about this hotel on trip advisor made by a friend last year we thought to give it a try for our first beak this summer. The original recommendation reported an excellent stay and this was not wrong. With great staff, beautiful rooms, homemade biscuits and wonderful food our three night stay was fantastic. When we arrived... More

Friendly staff, beautiful rooms with modern bathroom. Homemade biscuits and wonderful selection of teas and coffee in room. Complimentary tea and cake on arrival served on the lawn was delicious. We had booked into the bar for our first night and were not disappointed the food was nothing short of amazing so much so we booked in again for our... More

A wonderful place to retreat and rest after a day's walking on one of the many walking trails nearby. From the minute we arrived we felt welcome, and the staff were very helpful and efficient.The room was excellent...comfy bed, a wonderful shower and a great selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate in the room. The complimentary tea and cake... More

We had an excellent 2 night stay at The Elterwater. Our room was lovely with fabulous views. Being February the weather was not perfect, but we enjoyed a walk through The Langdale Valley. Being very wet, a lovely hot bath, followed by an evening meal in The Hotel. The meal was delicious, with very cosy surroundings. Breakfast the following morning... More

We found this gem purely by accident at the end of a long walk. The Inn is very well presented from the road side, which hides the stunning views towards the lake which can be viewed from the front lawns. We managed to get a last minute early table and were very pleased. The bar area is very welcoming and... More

Lovely stay, family run hotel that manages to deliver on everything. Hotel itself has loads of character, rooms are really interesting and view is good (albeit not the best in the lakes.) For such a small hotel we were pleasantly surprised they had been able to deliver a characterful bar area and sophisticated restaurant, both served modern and tasty food.... More

We stayed for 2 nights, just after Easter. Room was large with fantastic views, but lacked usual facilities expected for £250 a night! Had one meal at hotel which was quite bland and tasteless. (Seasoning might have helped). Staff not exactly friendly.
