We have stayed here 3 times now in the last 2 years. As usual the reception was easy, the room (again No.28), very clean, lovely hot bath, loads of wardrobe & drawer space, excellent. Evening meal excellent. But on this occasion the attached Riverside pub was lively due to the caillie band who played from 6pm until "late". This is... More

Great value. The menu and wine list is outstanding and a really excellent location. Very dog friendly and a hotel to sit and relax in in front of the open fire after a great day's walking- both for the most energetic and those wanting a less strenuous walk along well kept pathways. We will certainly return.

Our third visit to the Scafell hotel and again it was wonderful. The food is Michelin star quality, the staff are great. The rooms are spotless, comfortable. The walks around the Borrowdale valley are superb. The weather, well if you get wet the hotel dries your boots, coats and you recover of front of the roaring fire. Perfect. We have... More

Situated in a beautiful valley with lots of great walks from the doorstep. Room was very comfortable and the food in the restaurant was fantastic. Staff were great. Breakfast service on the second morning was quite slow but did not detract from the overall experience. We will undoubtedly return - a very individual hotel with a unique atmosphere and character

We arrived in the pouring rain to be warmly greeted at this most perfect of hotels with those magical words - 'no mobile signal' - I could have turned cartwheels! As we were one of only two couples dining that night we were shown to the cocktail lounge where two candle lit tables had been set up in the glow... More

Our first time at this hotel. A very warm welcome for us and Jess our border terrier. You couldn't wish for a more dog friendly hotel. The room was warm and comfortable and the bath towels are the best of any hotel we have stayed in. The dinner was excellent as were the breakfasts and all served by friendly staff.... More
