We spent a weekend in the hotel recently, and couldn't fault the service. The room was comfortably basic, and clean and well serviced. We arrived quite late so couldn't have had a meal in the dining room until 8.30, which was a bit late for us, so the receptionist suggested we eat in the bar, this was quieter than the... More

We had one night in room 229; great view, reasonably quiet room. Our room was very clean and presentable, plenty of towels and hot water. Staff were all very friendly, helpful and efficient. Very good dinner; if the "set" dining times help maintain the good levels of service and great food then I'm all for it! The mango/avocado slaw &... More

We've visited the Patterdale every year for the past 5 years and never been disappointed. This stay was the best however. The room we stayed in - 228 - was very cosy and as it's at the front commands a stunning view. The rooms look like they've had a makeover and look good for it. The food was as always... More

My wife and I spent a memorable week at the Patterdale Hotel from the 27th June - the 4th of July. We could not fault our stay. The staff were excellent, welcoming, friendly, in fact they could not do enough for you. Our bedroom which overlooked the stunning vista of the Lakeland fells was comfortable, as was our bed. The...

My friend and I stayed in what was sold as a superior room, unfortunately I felt let down as the room was very ordinary, when queried about the room I was advised it was called superior because of the view, our room was a t the front and faced the view of Place fell, if they marketed the room as...

Back today from 5 sunny days at the patterdale. We have stayed there many times and always been happy - but this week exceeded previous experiences. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the new décor very smart, and the choice of food even better than before. Apricots soaked in Schnapps with chewy meringue, almonds cream and icecream ...what's not to like!... More

Had another enjoyable stay at the Patterdale Hotel. Since our last stay the Hotel has obviously introduced a number of cost cutting measures but there has been no compromise to quality of service or excellent menu. There does appear to be a problem with the plumbing which did result in no water when we were trying to get ready for... More

DBB rate from LateRooms was very good value. Front bedroom was clean and pleasant; good view but for car park! No chair, but window seat & stool. Mirror too high on wall when seated at dressing area. Bathroom fine, v hot water, shower excellent, but for an hotel with very high % of elderly guests, strange that there was nothing... More

My wife and myself spent a very pleasant weekend break here,to do a bit of lake district touring. The hotel is ideally situated just south of Ullswater and a couple of miles from the bottom of the Kirkstone pass.If you are a walker it is a great place to stay. We did not bother with the lake view front rooms... More
