We had a mini walking break at the Scafell with a 3-course gourmet dinner included. Food and staff are great and while the hotel is full of character it lacks atmosphere. We were in the annexe which had some damp problems as the paint had peeled and there were water stains on the hall ceiling. However, the location is ideal... More

Went here for a Travel zoo break. The hotel is in a lovely setting and is very comfortable. The bar is a relaxing place to have a drink and the staff were very welcoming. Both dinner and breakfast were of excellent quality. The room was adequate and the bed very comfortable

This htel is excellently-placed if you're heading on a walking or activity holiday. The staff were friendly and helpful, though there was a lack of ready info about local activity unless the right staff were on. Breakfast was good, the evening dinner was strange - my steak had some kind of curried sauce with it. All in all I'd recommend... More

Courtesy of my son and his partner, we were treated to an overnight stay including a 3 course evening meal. The hotel is set in beautiful, tranquil surroundings. We were greeted by Katie who couldn't have give us a warmer or more helpful introduction to the hotel. First impressions are so important and it set the tone for our stay.... More

An overnight treat, after a difficult 6 months, was just what we needed. It was so peaceful and tranquil, the staff are lovely, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We would definately recommend this hotel.

A weekend treat as a gift from our daughter lived up to all expectations. A lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The food was great and the staff very friendly and accommodating to our 2 Border Collies, who curled up by the fire in the evening, while we relaxed with a glass of wine.

Our daughter had the kindness to give my wife and I a Travel Zoo voucher for this lovely hotel, as we both live in and love the Lake District. For those, (and there are many) who have never ventured to the Lake district, Borrowdale is simply stunning! Good enough for the late film director Ken Russell to make his home.... More
