A beautiful hotel with real character. We went there as a band to go walking and ended up playing a fantastic folk session on the Sunday night. The staff are fantastic and the food was brilliant too. In all a great little gem ...

Hotel has been updated since our last visit and it was very impressive. We especially enjoyed the excellent food served in the restaurant and the service could not be faulted. We will certainly visit again.

My wife and I stayed here on 15th & 16th Feb 2015. It was our second visit, having previously stayed here in 2013, and I am pleased to say it was even better this time. The reception staff were very welcoming and attentive. Our room had lovely decor, a comfy bed and generous bathroom, and it was nice and quiet.... More

This is a great hotel in a striking location. There is no better place from which to approach Scafell Pike, Great Gable or Glaramara. Comfortable accommodation, good food and hospitable staff. An excellent bar at the end of a long day walking or scrambling in the mountains.

Just come back from a Fell Break weekend at the Scafell - fantastic value! Clean, comfortable, good food and well worth a visit. Don't want to go on, there are plenty of positive reviews here that are fully justified, but would just like to say thank you again to all the staff for being so friendly and helpful. But especially... More

How lovely it is to return to this hotel with its friendly staff, wonderful food and cosy atmosphere. After a long walk in the hill and a visit to the Riverside bar, you can lie out and relax in the huge bath before getting dressed and descending down to the open fire for pre-dinner drinks and nibbles. The food was... More

We continue to visit this wonderful dog friendly hotel due mainly to the friendly staff and excellent food. We always see regulars which makes the stay even better. Warm, cosy lounge with log fire and great side bar with additional bar food if you don't want a restaurant dinner. Dining room could do with a makeover but the recently redecorated... More

Just returned from a one night break at this hotel. We booked with some friends through Travelzoo. We were very pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this hotel is. It is in an idyllic spot,a little off the beaten track but so worth a visit. It is quaint,spotlessly clean and is blessed with some of the nicest staff I have ever... More

We bought a £99 Travel Zoo offer for dinner b&b at this hotel and stayed there in February. It may only be a three star, but it offers a delightful country house atmosphere, comfortable rooms, a bar with CAMRA approved beers and great food. At £99 for 2, it was outstanding value. The location in Borrowdale is excellent if you... More

Going once is not enough so looking forward to the next visit. Ideal for walks both easy and difficult and what makes it is after a walk you are met by friendly staff and the smell of really good food.
