Fantastic food, great service in beautiful surroundings. Sorry to miss Mark and Ruth this time but we were looked after very well indeed. Be prepared to pay for a really good stay anywhere in this area. It is definitely worth it, if you can afford it.

This hotel has been beautifully refurbed and it's location is perfect if you want to stay somewhere a little more remote. It's our second visit to this hotel in the last 4 years and I don't know why we don't stay here every year when we visit. All of the food is great, we particularly like the ambience of the... More

We had a fabulously comfortable stay, room at the top of the Inn with exceptional views. We were made very welcome with complimentary tea/coffee and cake. We had a lovely well cooked meal, tasty and substantial from the Bar menu. Delightful and would definitely stay again but for longer.

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
