I stayed here for 2 nights with my fiancé using a voucher I bought as a gift. Upon arrival we checked in and were shown to our room, the general manager then called to offer a free upgrade due to a cancellation. The room was very nice inside with high quality bedding and decor. The bathroom was of ample size... More

Lovely two night stay at a good price. Loved the comfy public areas where the cosy fireside sofas and chairs were lush. Lots of papers and magazines to ponder over. The new conservatory is beautiful. Light and airy with modern real log fire. We got a room upgrade which was stunning would love to see the top of the range... More

Sadly we were both disappointed on our repeat visit... More

We recently spent a night at the Inn on the Lake on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The views of Ullswater and surrounding fells from the lounge bar were spectacular but we were equally impressed by the hotel's staff who were friendly and attentive without fail. We enjoyed an evening meal which was of good quality but perhaps not... More

We did a one night dinner, bed and breakfast deal for a treat and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Idyllic setting, definitely worth the extra for a Lake View room. Complimentary tea and scones on arrival, very good choice for the table d'hôte menu and everything you could wish for on the breakfast menu. All the staff were... More

A room was booked by my children and their families this weekend just gone for my husband and I as a 60th birthday present for me. The room had a stunning lake view, the room was beautifully decorated and the facilities first rate. We dined in the restaurant in the evening and the following morning for breakfast and both meals... More

My partner and I have just returned from a fantastic weekend in Ullswater. We attended a friends wedding at the Inn on the Lake on the Saturday. The weather was fantastic so they decided to have the wedding outside...this was beautiful, I cant imagine many places beating it for beauty with the lake and hills in the background. The bar...
