We have visited this hotel several times in recent years and as far as value for money is concerned it cannot be beaten. The staff are excellent as is the food, most (but not all) of the guests are keen walkers and the atmosphere is very relaxed.

Having another wonderful stay at Patterdale. Rooms immaculate, lots of lovely food, manager and his whole team brilliant as usual. They make the whole experience easy, friendly and relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble. Coupled with the fantastic scenery and walking its a must visit. Can't wait to come back.
