We have just returned from a two night stay at the Ennerdale. It is a lovely old building with plenty of character. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was big and spacious. There was plenty of hot water. The bed was very comfortable. We had a meal in the dining room on our first evening. The food was... More

If you are looking for a no frills, quirky little hotel then The Ennerdale Country House Hotel is the one for you.. Great value deal. Just stayed the one night. Had afternoon tea on arrival which was very pleasant. Rooms comfortably furnished and very cosy. Restaurant very reasonably priced with good food. Good quality Cumbrian breakfast. Nice friendly staff.

We had a one night stay at the Ennerdale 21.02.15. The place itself is lovely, cannot fault the decor, cleanliness or friendliness of the staff. Our room wasn't quiet, but it has to be expeceted with an old building; kettling pipework, squeaky floors etc. Only thing that let it down was the breakfast, menu reads 'grilled cumberland sausage', we received...

There are some things that you take as being standard in any hotel room:.A telephone, curtains that close all the way, no holes in the windows, a kettle that doesn't have to run off extension leads. This room failed on all counts (Room 5/Loweswater). Tips for those planning to stay in the future: I used the two small hand towels... More

We arrived here on the 6th of February after a very long drive from Manchester, we got here at about 5 to 9 and the lovely lady on the front desk instantly asked us whether we wanted any food cooking for us even though the kitchen shut at 9 o'clock, which was really nice. The room was spotless, and really... More

Four of us, two couples, had a lovely two night break here on 6th and 7th of February 2015. The Hotel is an amazing building, perhaps in need of some refurbishment and as someone else on here has said a little TLC. The grounds are beautiful and the location perfect for exploring this part of the Lake District. The staff... More

I have been reading these reviews and I'm somewhat perplexed! Am I staying in the same hotel? We have stayed here 2 nights, our room is very spacious and clean, In fact immaculate! Yes the decor may not be to everyone's taste but at the end of the day I personally think this keeps in character of the grand building!... More
