Very comfortable room and really clean. We ate in the restaurant both nights, the food was superb and the staff very attentive. The breakfasts were also very good with plenty of choice. Would stay here again, particularly if we needed to relax and be spoiled.

Once in a lifetime, a place comes alive for those in search of the idyllic. The Scafell Hotel is just such a destination. My Wife and I have visited this wonderful place on many occasions and when we get home, to our normal day-to-day lives, we pine to be back. In every sense this magical location exceeds every expectation. It... More

We had a two night break at the Scafell Hotel and really enjoyed it. We arrived a little early on Sunday afternoon so went into the Riverside Bar for a drink. There was a good selection of real ales and malts plus a decent food menu. The atmosphere was friendly too, always a good sign. We just had the one... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Scafell and we enjoyed it even more than the 1st time so looking forward to the 3rd! The staff are very friendly, efficient and obliging. The food in the hotel and Riverside bar is absolutely amazing and could only be improved by offering a few of the bar meals in the hotel as... More

Just back from a most enjoyable couple of days at the Scafell. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the room spotless and comfortable, and the food was outstanding. It is also in the perfect position for lots of beautiful walks

I'm something of a regular at the Scafell and although it was over a year since my last visit, I was recognised by the receptionist on checking in recently, which was nice. I was given a room I'd not previously been allocated (12) and found it as good as the others - quite small but perfectly adequate for single occupancy,... More

We received a very high standard on every aspect of our stay from friendly, obliging and informative staff at reception, cheerful and efficient service in the restaurant, excellent meals, easy relaxed atmosphere in the comfortable public areas and a lovely room. People we met had been coming for decades and it's easy to see why.

We have stayed at the Scafell Hotel on a number of occasions over the last ten years and it just gets better and better. The whole hotel has been gradually improved and whilst the food has always been good, it is now outstanding. However, we must pass on a word of warning - the plates are really, really hot -... More

A party of us stayed for the weekend - Friday to Sunday - and the Scafell was as good as we experienced three years ago. It is ideal base from which to set out into the beautiful fells. The staff are welcoming, the rooms clean, tidy and very comfortable but the baths are slippery so when showering be careful (... More
