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.

What can I say ... a little gem of a hotel that I will most definately be returning to! I booked this hotel as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend and as I am scared of heights & he really wanted to climb Scafell Pike again, I thought I'd conquer my fear for him and just do it! When we... More

This is a first class hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. The bedroom was a little on the small side but the bathroom was modern and of a high quality. The breakfast was all you could have asked for and the evening meals in the bar (Riverside pub) were very varied and enjoyed by all. We had the misfortune of... More

We arrived late at night after having experienced a terrifying evening of being lost on the mountain! Lucky for us, someone at the hotel, I believe it may have been "Lesley", alerted the police that we had not arrived. The mountain rescue team was activated and they were tremendous! They quickly found us and brought my daughter and I to... More

Expecting an average village hotel, instead we had a very warm and caring welcome. The room itself (room 20) was very "Boutique", with a lovely bed and matching decor. The room was nicely decorated, but nowhere to put the suitcase out of the way. The bathroom was nicely decorated and fitted and very spacious. There was no mobile reception, and... More

Super location in order to walk around Scafell Pike or derwentwater. Lovely rooms with amazing deep bath which so welcoming after a day out walking. Riverside Bar great for drinks, food ok but not amazing and surprisingly doesn't serve food between 5 and 6pm. Lovely lounge area in main hotel to relax in, and breakfast great too.

I stayed at the Scafell hotel with 3 girl friends on the way home from Glasgow. We wanted to climb Scafell pike and wanted somewhere to stay that was comfortable and not too far from the mountain. We arrived before check-in and the hotel were happy to take our bags and check in later, so we didn't have to keep... More

A great stay. Great food in the adjacent bar. Comfortable and neatly styled rooms. Wonderful residents lounge and cocktail bar. Decent breakfast. Excellent service from friendly staff. They also matched an online quote with no quibble. Would I go back? No question. This is a fine, well run and traditional Lakeland hotel.

The Scafell Hotel is charming old hotel in the lovely location of Borrowdale. However, the service and the night's sleep(mattress) were disappointing. As we arrived on foot, we struggled to find the way in but eventually discovered the pedestrian gate . The reception staff were too busy chatting to each other to even look up and were totally oblivious to... More

We booked this hotel as a late family break and discovered it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. We were allowed to take our dog and as many dog owners are not as fussy as we are, we were not expecting a clean or elegant hotel. How wrong we were. The hotel is charming and... More
