I have stayed at the Patterdale Hotel from the time that Choice Hotels took it over, I have just been reading some of the reviews, the one that I think is unfair is from York, after that review please stay away because if the MANAGER & STAFF could have done more to help I am sure they would have done....

The staff are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to please guests. There was a good choice of food and even entertainment on the Saturday evening. The... More

Having stayed in a couple of the sister hotels to this one we were keen to try it. We booked a reasonably priced weekend in the very heart of the Lake District. The location was splendid for those walkers (and I think there were a lot in this time). The staff were very friendly and hard working. We were given... More

The rooms were very clean, comfortable and well appointed. There were some strange food combinations, but all in all the fayre was excellent. would highly recommend the Patterdale,... More

We had stayed here several years ago and were pleasantly surprised with the refurbishments making this into one of the best value hotels in a superb location. Fantastic value, great food. Full marks to the staff for providing superb full breakfast in difficult conditions during a power cut with atmospheric candlelight in the restaurant! The rooms were extremely comfortable, masses...

There was a power cut from 4am Saturday morning to approx 7pm on the Saturday evening. Admittedly this is an isolated & rare incident which the hotel have no control over. However the way in which this was dealt was unacceptable. First off- no emergency lighting. There was, for the first hour, then none. A legal requirement. Therefore pitch black... More
