Great hotel, super friendly staff aswell. Food was very good and the room we had was amazing. Don't know how it is not a 5 star but it should be. Don't understand the review below to be honest. But would definitely revisit and recommend it to others

The hotel is a little old-fashioned and as with many hotels the public areas are in better condition than the bedrooms. The lounge, dining room and bar area were functional but not very inspiring. The breakfast was reasonable but again not inspiring. I was in room 5 which was right at the top of the hotel and I have a... More

We'd been booked into the Westlakes by the owner of The Old School (another excellent reason to stay there!), at the last minute to extend our Wedding Anniversary break in Cumbria. The staff were friendly, but it was the room that took our collective breath away! It was huge - see images! We'd been booked into a King Size room,... More

Although I haven't stayed here I have eaten at the restaurant several times, and I've never been disappointed. The food is always well presented; there is a good range of dishes, all made freshly from largely local produce, and whenever we've had a special request this has been accommodated without fuss. The staff are cheerful and friendly without being 'in... More

A last minute break into the Lakes, a chance to enjoy the coast and to explore somewhere new. The hotel offered good value accommodation, a warm welcome from the staff who really looked after us with personal attention (even supplying some antihistamine tablets as I'd forgotten to pack some!). I would recommend eating here one evening if you stay, the... More

I have just run a conference / training course here. The conference room is close to the bedrooms but far enough away so not to interfere with each other. Facilties good all round . Staff are superb. Really friendly and helpful. Good food. A big fat thank you from me.
