Myself and my partner stayed at The Inn on the Lake last night after booking a last minute celebration get away. Our entire experience from start to finish was excellent and both the venue and the service were faultless throughout. We upgraded to one on the river view rooms (number 44 - would definitely recommend) and were greeted with a... More

Happily stayed previously with our dog, but this time a little disappointing. Dogs are only allowed in the Orangery which is a lovely conservatory. On a deal this visit DBB with scones coffee on arrival. We asked if we could have this in the Orangery, & were told it was fully booked, but could have it in the ramblers bar... More

If you are looking for a beautiful place for a wedding and reception with accommodation you can't got wrong here. Beautiful setting inside and out with a pub of your own for your reception. Food good, and right on the edge of Ulleswater. Not difficult find either.

The Inn on The Lake is quite frankly an enchanting venue. Booked a deal via Travelzoo to include one night stay, afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. I'd wanted a Lake View Room but as none were available on my preferred date of travel, I opted for the Fell View which was still lovely but probably not as lovely as the... More

We actually got married here 7 years ago and we couldn't think of a better place to take our daughter for a birthday lunch! My daughter and I enjoyed the most beautiful lunch in the Orangery and the staff were so kind and attentive but never crowded us. We were served mainly by Jeremy who was friendly and courteous at...

This hotel has a superb location on the shore of Ullswater, the lawn runs right down to the lakeside. Recently refurbished the hotel was spotless, the staff very pleasant and very helpful. The meals were top class, the evening fixed menue was a little restricted but one evening when I did not fancy any of the main courses the waitress... More

Dear Ray Marsh Thank you for your lovely comments and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The standard rooms of which there are only 4 don’t have the views or space of the superior rooms and although beautifully decorated it wouldn’t be the same as the Lakeview superior. We don’t have fibre optic in the village... More
