Beautiful location, set across from our apartment at Kiln How. We sat in the yard over looking a running river and you can't help but feel peaceful. Beautiful food, welcoming staff and plenty of dogs. Everyone in there was so friendly and when my daughter just wanted to sit and stroke their dogs she wasn't told no. Great place.

We spent three nights here in August on friends' recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We only booked B&B, but actually ate twice in the hotel dining room as the food was so good. The staff made us feel like old friends even though this was our first visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Scafell and will return! The bedrooms and lounge areas are well appointed and comfortable.The evening meal was very good as were the packed lunches. The location is quiet and relaxed and there are lots of easy walks from the doorstep. The only change we would make on our return is to request a... More

a long term visitor to this hotel and I have never had to give a negative review. All the staff are so friendly and the food second to none. The riverside has a great selection of ales and is a great way to finish a walk. Dogs are welcomed by all.

My son and I stayed at the Scafell Hotel after climbing up Scafell Pike. We had a warm welcome, and the member of staff on reception took us to our room via the shortest route because we were so tired! Room was smallish, but plenty big enough for our needs. Beds very comfortable, everything spotless. Delightful view of the river... More

Popped in there after a very hard walk and straight away the people who work there wanted to give there full atention to us. These people who work there should hold their heads up high... More
