Stayed for 3 nights half-board as a party of 8 adults. It's difficult to see why the hotel hasn't got extra stars from the AA/RAC. The whole place is clean and comfortable and we spent many hours in the bar - our thanks to the staff who stayed up to keep serving us! The majority of the guests (95% adults)... More

We visited this hotel/restaurant on a Sunday evening, hoping to have dinner. The restaurant was fully-booked so we were directed to the bar for the bar menu. Once we'd ordered from the limited range available, the food arrived suspiciously quickly. My grilled trout was luke-warm, as was the small selection of 'mediterranean vegetables' provided. The chips were however hotter and... More

Only a review of the bar/restaurant, where we had a late lunch recently. A large, tasty burger and plate of chips went down well with a few pints of local ale. Ideal end to a fabulous day out. Particularly appreciate the all-day service.

I love the Patterdale Hotel. Excellent value for money and the staff are so helpful and professional. Plus we won the Tuesday night quiz so everyone in the family was happy. The meals were superb and the position of the hotel is perfect for beautiful walks.

Stayed here for 2 nights in August with my friend, we picked the Lakes as a "mid point" between our two locations and would definitely return to the Patterdale Hotel again. We didn't arrive until after 9pm but when it had become obvious to the hotel that we perhaps weren't going to arrive in time for a meal (they stop... More
