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

Visited here for a last minute relaxing weekend break. The hotel is in beautiful surroundings and the room we were allocated was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We had our dinner delivered to our room on the first night and this was delicious. We also had a bottle of... 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.

Chose West Lakes Hotel as we wanted a hotel in tranquil surroundings but within easy reach of a village and walking routes and were not disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable and we had 2 peaceful nights sleep. The village is about 3 minutes walk just across the road and there are 2 pubs which serve food and a... More
