Stayed for one night in August and had 2 rooms between the family. The rooms were fine, although the beds are a little soft! Breakfast is very very good. If you eat in the evening best go to the Riverside bar where the food is well worth the wait. A bit disappointing that the hotel don't let your order coffee/teas... More

This hotel was just what I needed after a long day trekking on the Coast to Coast walk. The hotel is located right on the trail and included all the comforts that my weary body needed...including a bath tub! Very comfortable bed as well.

Oh dear, I have read all the good reviews & as we only called for lunch last Sunday, it may be unfair, but I have to be honest! We were en route to Buttermere, when we saw Scafell Hotel & called for a sandwich. Perhaps we should have gone into the Riverside Bar, but didn't actually know it existed as... More

We are regulars but were a little disappointed this trip as the hot water failed twice (at peak demand times!), one of our party got his main course at dinner about 10 mins after everyone else one night and reception made a messup of our bills (I paid the deposit for 4 rooms and they took it off one of...

I was very wary about taking my rather large and boisterous German Shepherd. I need not have worried as the staff and fellow customers made my dog and I very welcome, he was even allowed in the enjoyable Riverside Bar attached to the hotel! The staff are amazing here, professional and courteous but will happily enjoy some banter and take... More

We have just got home from a lovely stay in the Barnes Wallis suite at the hotel. This room was amazing, with its lovely deep bath and extremely comfy bed. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic, very friendly and efficient! The man on reception printed out a nice walk that we could do from the hotel, which... More

The internet photos give the impression of a newly refurbished hotel. when in reality only some of the rooms are like this. First impressions aren't good, compared to what you might expect from the photos. Peeling paintwork, old and dated reception and corridors. A conservatory area filled with old furniture that looks like a nursing home. The room we stayed... More

another lovely trip. The staff change very little which fits with the happy nature of the place. Great lake district walking from the hotel. We walked up the back and finished in Keswick and got the bus back which was a new and interesting view of the valley from the breezy top deck. Best check the bus timetable before you... More

After a gruelling walk on the Coast to Coast we were warmly welcomed by all the staff, got installed in a wonderful room and enjoyed a most enjoyable pub meal. Breakfast hearty for next days walk. Easy to find if on the coast to Coast walk.
