We had booked a "non view" room but in fact we had view of the lake and the hills as we had a bright airy corner room. The decor in the room was slightly dated but it was clean and fresh. The food in the hotel deserves its two rosettes. Our only issues were it was the same menu on... More

The Inn on the Lake is in a picturesque location on the shores of Ullswater. Whilst the volume of wedding parties, may dilute the tranquility the Customer service was excellent. The ability to accommodate dogs in the new orangery allows for total inclusion of all who visit. A job well done guys

Stayed for a wedding and have to say in the main all my experience was of a high standard. There was a wedding every day therefore guests and other residents do mix rather freely at times and it does feel like a conveyor belt but the grounds are wonderful and the rooms as you would expect. I had a standard... More

Stopped for lunch in the Orangery and happened to ask for a brochure at reception. Mentioned we would like to stay in a room overlooking the lake sometime and a very nice lady offered to show us an empty room. This was just what we were looking for and will definitely book later this year. Lunch was excellent too!

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the rooms are very luxurious and clean. We were never disturbed by any other guests although there was a beautiful wedding everyday, it was very quiet and relaxing. We had a lovely breakfast inthe dining room with attentive waiters/waitresses , the staff seem to know when they are needed and when they are not. All... More

We went recently and the wedding party and guests do take up a lot of the hotel areas and the Ramblers... More

Booked A fell view room for 2 adults & 2 kids (aged 7 & 2), the room was large and bright and had room for a camp bed as well. Room was clean & quite. Had dinner both nights once in the orangery and once in the main restaurant and both pretty good. Great location etc would book again.

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
