We booked this as part of a hotel package with Travelzoo. The hotel was 400 years old, and in a gorgeous setting. The staff were superb throughout our stay, cheerful, helpful, smiling, polite. The package included a four course evening meal on the first night, and it was superb. The breakfast on both mornings was plentiful and very tasty. The... More

We had a lovely short stay at Scarfell Hotel.The staff were all friendly & nothing was too much trouble.Our room was lovely & quiet with great views of the hills. The large bathroom was gorgeous and the bath was big enough for two! The shower was great too.The food was delicious.All in all we really couldn't fault it.

We wanted to climb Helvellyn and needed somewhere in the same area to stay overnight and up-popped The Scafell Hotel on a Travel Zoo deal. Well what a surprise, the location was superb, the Hotel was Olde Worlde and full of character, yet extremely comfortable with squashy sofas, and in the evening before and after dinner, a wonderful roaring log...

We booked a 2 night bed and breakfast break with evening meal on the first night - a special deal through Travelzoo. I also wanted a single room as we were surprising my elderly but fit mother, who had never been to the Lake District before. The booking was easy and the reception staff made a special effort to ensure... More

Really good food, great service. Lovely comfortable room. Beautiful location. This exceeded our expectations, as we'd booked on a Travelzoo deal & it was very reasonably priced. It was a nicely decorated room with great bathroom. Friendly reception and restaurant staff, both at evening and breakfast service.

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
