We booked an afternoon tea for a birthday treat. The beautiful view over Ullswater is gorgeous. Our special requests about sandwiches were met and the food was totally delicious. The finger sandwiches were 'huge' in terms of finger sandwiches expected size. The cakes were devine but the fruit sones were dry and disappointing. The variety in tea choice was nice.... More

Stayed for one night at The Inn on the Lake and we would like to say the friendly professional staff are a real credit to this hotel, nothing was too much trouble and they make you feel very welcome. We stayed in a spacious "Lake View Room", very clean with a huge comfortable bed, it was on the 2nd floor... More

I attended a wedding here as best man, and was extremely impressed by the location, the quality of food, and the hard work of the staff. Unfortunately the wedding coincided with the loss of power to the entire valley, and the hotel doing the switch over from old to new back up generators. As best man I had visions of... More

The setting of this hotel is undeniably stunning and we booked a 20th wedding anniversary break. Unfortunately when we walked into our beautiful feature room, we were greeted by the buzz of 30-40 bluebottles/ house flies on the window, forming a crawling black veil over the view. An hour later after a free cream tea and a visit from housekeeping... More

Had an overnight stay here with dinner and it was lovely. Cosy old style hotel with stunning views over the lake. Afternoon tea was very nice sitting by the fire with a selection of finger sandwiches, scones and cakes all home made. The three course dinner menu was included in the price of our stay and was excellent, well presented... More

My wife and I have just spent 4 nights here. No complaints or moans at all. The food was top class, the service top notch, staff courteous and polite. The whole building was warm and as for the comfort of the beds? Not had such a peaceful sleep since I was under anaesthetic 12 years ago. Just sublime.

We visit the lakes once or twice a year and always stay with Lake District hotels, this was our first stay at the Inn on the Lake however but not our last! The hotel grounds are stunning and after arrival we took my parents who travelled with us to play croquet on the lawn. Wonderful way to spend an hour... More

We stayed here one night during our coast-to-coast hike. We were lucky to have one of the updated lakefront rooms. After a long day on the trail, it was wonderful to relax with the Ullswater Lake just outside the window. The dining room served a delicious, fresh dinner.

This is a truly 'smart' hotel in a wonderful scenic position. If you are seeking a TREAT for yourself - look no further. There is a large car park, a double door entrance and several lounge areas if the weather is inclement. Here for a wedding, we loved the service, the food and most of all the glorious gardens leading... More

Well, the room is clean and comfortable but my room was very small and overlooked the parking lot. For the price I paid, I had expected better. The hotel is very upscale and the views are gorgeous toward the lake. Other problems – they don’t have air conditioning and never thought to need it (it doesn’t get warm apparently and... More
