Popped in for some lunch and was blown away by this lovely place. We sat outside and the views are breathtaking. Service was great and the food we had for lunch (salad) was one the best we have had. We will definitely be back and are planning to stay so we can enjoy more.

Just returning home after spending 3 lovely days in the Lake District at the Eltemere Inn. The village was quaint and everything you would expect from the Lakes. The Inn situated on the road out of the village heading towards Coniston Water was beautiful with stunning views stretching out across the water and meadows - we spent an evening just... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of March. The Eltemere Inn is in a peaceful location with fabulous views, yet not too far from Ambleside and Grasmere. We loved everything about this hotel. There are several sitting rooms or seating areas to relax after a day's walking and this hotel is very walker friendly. The bar is cosy... More

Stayed here for two nights in October last year for a much needed break after a busy time at work. Lovely hotel in tranquil surroundings, with a spectacular view. Good location, we were able to get around all the lakes in one day by car. We had dinner in the local pub the first night, a 5 minute walk, be... More

We had a lovely few days at the Eltermere Inn after our son recommended it highly having stayed there on numerous occasions. The location is perfect for walking and is only a short drive from Ambleside. The food is excellent, the wine selection is superb and the staff are friendly and efficient. We will definitely be returning!

Just returned from a memorable 3 nights at the eltermere inn. Fantastic hospitality shown by all, great food, great location and most helpful staff. Can't wait to go back. The only disappointment was the weather, but the hotel more than compensated. Thanks to all at Eltermere.

Our celebratory birthday meal was ruined by the owners daughters reaction to our complaint about the lack of fish in the bouillibaisse. Mussels and. boiled potatoes do not a bouillibaisse make. On complaining we were told by the said daughter not to come back. Don't worry we won't, and we hope others will be aware.

Stayed for 1 night. Very comfortable room. Great bar area. Good selection of food and drink. Breakfast was very good with good coffee. Only one slight fault the chef needs to learn how to cook a steak!
