My wife and I stayed for two nights at the beginning of August. The interior of the hotel has been constructed with a real eye for detail and quality. There are not many hotels where you start to make notes of the tables, chairs, bookshelves etc. just in case we want to revamp our house with top quality and painstakingly... More

Loverly staff,good food and it was the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. Location next to Eltermere Lake which is located in a small valley which is typical lake district. Yet only a few miles from Ambleside. I hope to return soon.

We enjoyed an exceptional Sunday lunch at this beautiful hotel and restaurant. With a choice of a cosy bar or elegant dining room setting, the restaurant offered a 2 or 3 course set lunch. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented, the service was very good and there was an interesting wine list on offer. We are looking forward to... More

This is one of the best hotels in the Lakes - informal, light touch, unpretentious, lovely green view, family run, classy unfussy food, wood fire in the bar, quality wine list and tastefully done rooms combining tradition and modernity. If its Low Key but Unsophisticated Lakes you are after then this is the place. And the Langdales are on the... More

Our third visit to this lovely hotel, first time in summer so we could enjoy the beautiful views into the evening. This well run, family owned, newly renovated hotel is a delightful getaway destination. Such a peaceful hotel with fine dining making this the complete location for relaxation, and a great base for excellent walks from the door.

The staff had everything prepared for us when we arrived, table overlooking Elterwater, flowers on the table for my wife, and the meal was delicious and worth every penny.The hotel staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. Will come back again when on holiday in the lakes

Visited a few weeks back, in all honesty I can't recall what we ate, hence its not an out of the world memorable experience. Still it's pretty decent. The restaurant is perfectly suited for fine dining. I have on another occasion last year eaten in the bar, again the ambiance is perfectly fit for purpose. Of course the views and... More

What a find, beautiful setting, elegant rooms, and delicious food, what more could you ask for in this beautiful part of the country. Nothing was too much trouble, and the staff were friendly, can't recommend enough. We would certainly return
