We stayed three nights in a premier plus room with good views over the surrounding countryside. The room has a visual wow, but lacks some practical details, like a towel rail near the wash basin, a toilet roll holder and where do you put your toiletries in the shower, the floor is the only place, and it lacks face cloths...

This reviewer stayed in the same room as a previous reviewer -- A Lake District GEM, 23 August -- who posted photos on TripAdvisor. I rarely have issues with individual guests, however, this chap managed to upset a couple of my staff within half an hour of arrival with his totally unacceptable demands and ugly manners. To suggest he paid... More

Actually my husband and I never got to stay at the Eltermere. Our allocated room (number 10) was so drab and disappointing and so obviously in need of a complete overhaul (tired decor and peeling wallpaper) that we asked if we could pay for an upgrade but were told there were no other rooms available. We then asked if we... More

I can understand the disappointment of this reviewer on being shown to room 10 if she had seen our recently refurbished rooms on the Eltermere website. This is becoming an issue for us when guests book through third party websites -- laterooms etc. -- Honestly, an enquiry off our own website or a quick 'phone call can eliminate any doubt... More

We stayed in the Eltermere Inn for 2 nights earlier this month and fell in love with its location straight away, the grounds were peaceful, elegant and paired with the stunning backdrop of the Cumbrian mountains and the nearby Elterwater lake the Eltermere Inn is the perfect setting for a getaway. The rooms were beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished... More

We came here in April to celebrate a special occasion and it could not have been more perfect. We arranged to meet friends and family here during the day and when our guests arrived in the morning for pre-walk drinks, coffee and home made biscuits, the fires were lit, there were fresh flowers everywhere. The owners, Mark and Ruth, were... More

Superb country setting overlooking Elterwater lake and the backdrop of the Cumbrian mountains made it the finest Lake District location. We booked for 3 nights in August, our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. This is a fabulous historic manor house with fantastic scenery, quiet and unspoilt and just 4 miles to Ambleside. The staff were friendly and helpful, dinners and breakfasts were... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a 3 night break at the beginning of August in the Willy Goodwaller room. The location is very peaceful with stunning views over the lakes. Our room was lovely, with a free-standing, roll top bath and a very comfortable bed. The full English breakfasts were delicious and set us up for full days... More

We chose to go to The Eltermere Inn as we liked the location, the contemporary but elegant feel of the property as described on their website and the fact that it had mainly good reviews on TripAdvisor Can I preface this review by saying that since joining TripAdvisor in June 2006 I have stayed in dozens of different hotels in...

We have just returned from a very nice stay at the Eltermere Inn. The hotel has been extremely tastefully refurbished. You can tell by all the nice little touches that the owners care about their hotel. We thought that our dinner was very good. The 2 front of house staff members that we met during our stay were very pleasant.... More
