Spent 3 splendid midweek days here in November, a return trip after another lovely stay in July. The hotel itself is in a beautiful setting with fantastic walking straight out of the door. The hotel is really well appointed with an excellent fire warmed bar and very comfortable lounge and dining areas. The rooms we stayed in were excellent. Food... More

A hotel that has come to rely more on its looks than to exercise any charm. While significant attention has been paid to decor, scant regard is paid to hospitality at The Eltermere Inn, with staff interactions conducted in a cold, transactional manner: things are competently but joylessly managed. Similarly, a tastefully decorated bedroom that promised a cozy night's sleep... More

Dear Chris B Hen Crag is our smallest room & priced accordingly. Eltermere, an 18th century building, has it's own character which the majority our our guests enjoy. Regrettably, for whatever reason, you chose not to use our bars, lounges or dining rooms during your brief stay here -- I can only apologize, therefore, if your experience at breakfast was... More

We stayed for 2 nights in September, position of the hotel is beautiful. Home made cake and tea when we arrived was a good start, but the room Hen Crag was very disappointing, it smelt very damp and when we left our clothes smelt. Room overlooked road.

Ate here as part of a group booking for 16 people. We were put in the bar side room which is perfect for groups; it really added to the weekend experience. Staff really attentive, beer superb and food excellent.

We stayed at the hotel for the last 3 nights of the warmest September since records began. The weather was, without doubt, a factor in a most enjoyable weekend, but so was the hotel. It's situated at a winning location; easily accessible by cab from Windermere, in beautiful surrounds and gardens, and if you just want to walk for hours... More

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Eltemere. A relaxed atmosphere with lovely hosts. The hotel and rooms are beautifully decorated and the food is delicious. It's very a peaceful location with lovely views and just a sort drive to the Langdale Spa which we had access to as part of our stay. Hoping to go back again next... More

A wonderful stay. We were able to forgive the very small bedroom and tiny bathroom because the setting of the hotel was amazing with wonderful views. Our evening meal was taken in the bar area. There was lots of choice and the meal was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the interesting artefacts displayed around the public areas of the hotel.

The Eltermere Inn is well located for exploring the Lake District. The room we were allocated was comfortable, had a lovely shower. The room overlooked a yard and the road, not much of a view. The food served was poor for instance "Eggs Florentine served with Hollandaise sauce". No Hollandaise - instead served with loads of melted butter poached egg... More

We only visited the Eltermere Inn on the way back from a walk in the little Langdale valley. It was quite nice inside and the food was very good. The bar was well stocked and the service was good with a pleasant girl serving. The views are very nice across Eltermere it's self and the gardens are very nice.

The setting, food, and staff are all top notch. It's a lovely Georgian house, which is quirky but very comfortable. The food is modern, but not overly-complicated, and the views and location are difficult to beat. The main drawback was a lack of shower in our room. Given that our room was billed as "Superior Plus", and that it was... More
