I've stayed at this hotel twice now. Once for Christmas (2013) and on the weekend of 10/11 May 2014 which was the wedding of my daughter. Naturally, we were nervous about the wedding all the more so because Laura and Chris were travelling from Australia and we were keen for everything to be great. It was. The staff were outstanding...

I stayed here nearly a year ago with my girlfriend. I have only just started using trip advisor and thought it was only right to provide a review of the Inn on the Lake. The Inn is a great hotel, good value for money, great food, helpful staff and a brilliant location. I would recommend the Inn to anyone visiting... More

If you are looking for a retreat from the hurly burly of the southern lake district then this may be the spot for you. We had an amazing afternoon tea in the Orangery courtesy of a friend. Location was stylish but contemporary. Great service and stunning views over the lake.

Great location, well presented, very comfortable. Excellent service from attentive staff. Amazing food whether A La Carte or Table d'Hote. A place to revisit without question. Even the Lake District weather couldn't dampen enthusiasm for this place.

We have just stayed here on a travelzoo break and we have been so impressed not only by the hotel location but the excellent food, friendly staff and amazingly comfy bed. The location at the end of Ullswater in Glenridding speaks for itself but the location of the hotel on the lake edge with beautifully manicured lawns leading from the... More

We returned after previous visit, arrived early (again), too early to check in, receptionist said if we wanted a drink she'd find us when room available. We sat in orangery looking at the wonderful view, didn't have a room card at the time but no problem putting drinks on the bill. Staff as usual attentive and friendly, we like to... More

We booked this short break on Travelzoo. The hotel is beautifully sited at the southern end of Ullswater in large well kept gardens and even has a mini golf course. The staff were all very friendly and the premises very well maintained. Our fell view room was adequate in size, perfectly clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was a... More

Didn't stay here but had regular coffee, and lunch! Nice food, and absolutely lovely staff - nothing is too much trouble. Scones are delicious. Only downside is much of the hotel and the ramblers bar out of bounds due to daily weddings.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn on the Lake Hotel ia a 4 star hotel that enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Lake District in 15 acres of grounds with lawns sweeping to the shores of Lake Ullswater. The Inn on the Lake is only 12 miles from the M6 motorway and the drive is very dramatic with the road curving around the Lake and the backdrop scenery of the fells. There are 47 en-suite bedrooms, all thoughtfully designed with most rooms having breathtaking views, some looking towards the magnificent Helvellyn mountain range, while the majority look over the ever changing Ullswater. Each room is fully equipped with everything you come to expect in this quality 4 star hotel. For that special occasion upgrade to a superior room or one of the very popular, stunning four-poster bedrooms. From the moment you walk into reception you will find an interior that compliments this fabulous setting. This leads through to the popular Lounge Bar where a warm welcome awaits with large bay windows overlooking the well landscaped gardens, which lead to the hotels jetties on Ullswater. Enjoy a drink any time of the day, a light lunch or afternoon tea in the Lounge or on our Lakeside terrace. The award-winning 2 AA Rosette Lake View Restaurant provides something for all tastes, or for less formal dining The Ramblers Bar, situated within the hotel’s grounds, offers the option to enjoy a pint of real ale. The hotel also has its own outdoor activities including pitch & putt, croquet and children's outdoor play area. Gary and his team at The Inn on the Lake Hotel look forward to welcoming you soon. ... more   less
