The hotel is fine, free parking with a bar and a pub serving good ale, its very friendly, efficient and nothing is to much trouble as they want you to have a good stay. The resident's lounge is comfortable with an adjacent bar and there free wifi around. The fire is lit in the evening but it is a bit... More

We have just returned from another wonderfully relaxing stay at the Scafell Hotel in the beautiful valley of Borrowdale, it really is a bolt hole from the hustle and bustle of modern life. We are always guaranteed a warm welcome from the reception staff, who are extremely friendly and happy togo the extra mile to help their guests. All the... More

We have been staying at the hotel, just after the New Year, for the last 8 years and it is a splendid place to start off the beginning of a new year. The staff are very professional but also friendly ,considerate and welcoming. The hotel is comfortable and homely, without needing all the trappings of a pool or gym to... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night but wished we had stayed longer. Our greeting was a little cool but have still given our stay five stars as rest of the staff were very friendly. Our room was lovely the best towels ever. Our meal was outstanding, delicious food and hot. Lots of choice and we were not limited... More

What more could we ask for ? The hotel is charming like an oldish country house with character and log fires. The staff can't do enough for you and you feel part of a warm and loving family! Many of the staff have been there a long time which shows the team effort they all put in to make this... More

My wife & I stayed mid Dec. It was a very wet and grey day in Ambleside. But when we arrived at the hotel as soon as we went inside it was so welcoming and warm and very festive. The young gentlemen at reception was so friendly. We went to our room which was the Barnes Wallis Suite and the... More

Evening meal was slightly awkward as hotel... More

This was our second visit.Excellent food, service and atmosphere, warm, clean and comfortable room, cosy with open fires and dog-friendly too in a beautiful, quiet setting. Also very good value for money. Will definitely go again.

We have stayed here 3 times now in the last 2 years. As usual the reception was easy, the room (again No.28), very clean, lovely hot bath, loads of wardrobe & drawer space, excellent. Evening meal excellent. But on this occasion the attached Riverside pub was lively due to the caillie band who played from 6pm until "late". This is... More
