Myself and my fiance stayed for 3 nights this weekend. The whole hotel was calm, quiet and relaxing. All staff were very friendly, professional and polite. Diane, Geoff and Debra (and Debra's parents who were also staying in the hotel at the time) were all chatting to guests and making them feel welcome. We had the same young, polite, professional...

Stayed here for a week whilst working in the area and thoroughly enjoyed my stay! I couldn't have asked for more! Debra and her staff were absolutely brilliant and the food was superb. The hotel oozes charm and the room was tastefully decorated to the highest standard with the biggest bed I had ever seen! I'll be returning in September... More

We arrived at Westlakes Hotel when our day hiking/touring the Lakes was drawing to a close. Luck was on our side when we were offered the room with the 4 poster bed! Pre-dinner drinks were served by a friendly owner in the elegant newly renovated bar while a well crafted 3 course meal prepared with locally sourced ingredients was served... More

We we were there for my Mums birthday- I grew up near here and it is in a great location. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the staff always willing... More

My husband booked in here for business and i joined him for the weekend. The hotel is very comfortable, staff are very friendly, and the room was nice with a great view over the fells. Its a great base for walking- near to Scafell and some of the quieter and more peaceful lakes such as Ennerdale. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Faultless from start to finish,we stayed two nights in the room with four poster bed.My wife and i were amazed at the size of the bed!! It was so comfortable and welcoming. The room was decked out with antique furniture and reminded Debbie, my wife of Downton Abbey ( whatever that is ? ) On both nights we dined in... More

Just arrived home from couple of nights at this lovely hotel, set in a quiet location but beautiful. The staff were really helpful and friendly, our room was a king size room with the most comfiest bed I have ever slept in. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. Beautiful little touches with lovely lemon soaps/ shower gel... More

faultless from start to finish! fabulous view from a lovely room at the back of the property, staff more than willing to please in any way they could. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to perfection and the evening meals were varied, fantastic value for money and empty plates on both evenings!!! keep up the good work and would definitely return!!!!!

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
