This hotel is perfectly placed for low and high level hill / mountain walking, or if you prefer, a lake side walk. The hotel is very clean, very tidy, staff are very friendly and helpful, and the food is excellent.

I've stayed at the Patterdale hotel several times over the past five years. I have always found the service to be excellent, however this recent visit showed that the staff went above and beyond their duty. I would especially like to mention Stacy and Pete, who accommodated our needs by changing our times for dinner. Also to mention Willow who... More

The hotel sits comfortably at the foot of some of Lakelands most stunning hills. We wandered into its reception area following a 6 hour hike through some of the areas most beautiful and challenging walks, we were greeted by friendly staff who explained that we, and our muddy boots were welcome, but our dog was not...... So, dog owners, this... More

Have tried to stay at this property several times over the years but with their two day minimum stay it has never worked for us. Have enjoyed the fine beer garden at the front of the hotel many times including earlier this month. After a long day of walking a couple of coldies at a picnic table nestled on the... More

Have just returned from a four night visit to this hotel. First visit in two years but the standard has been maintained, if not enhanced. Relaxing environment, friendly staff and good food. Value for Money expected of Choice hotels. The added value is the location of the hotel, Ullswater looking North and Kirkstone Pass southwards.

I've stayed at the Taj Mahal Palace so I understand hotel service levels. This hotel is 2 star, so I wasn't expecting much. We reserved a front-facing room (£10 extra) and the view was lovely; the tang from the sewerage tanks was a little off-putting on the odd occassion but, hey-ho- it's 2 star and the view is great.
