Stayed Friday/Saturday night on DBB. Check in was very efficient. Our room, at the rear of the hotel, was compact but functional. It was located next to the lift but there was no noise to be heard. Dinner was delicious both nights and the buffet breakfast would have suited any tastes. The Ullswater steamer is a short, pleasant walk from... More

We stayed at the Patterdale Hotel from 21-23 November and can honestly say that the standards are still as high as the last time we stayed. On arrival, the welcome is warm and friendly, everything is explained to you about your room, breakfast, dinner, etc. in a very efficient but friendly manner. The rooms are very clean and have everything... More

We booked a weekend stay and due to problems with the M6 we were delayed by 2 hours. We had an evening meal included and due to the restaurant taking last orders at 8.30pm the hotel telephoned to see if we would make it and then provided a "cold platter". Not just a sandwich and bag of crisps, it was... More

We stayed for a two night weekend winter package in fell view room. DBB. Food was fine. The breakfast choices very good and nobody should leave hungry. The evening meal was good on Friday, fine on Saturday. There were plenty of staff on duty, nothing too much trouble at all. Very efficient. Room not huge but plenty big enough for... More

My husband and I were out walking with our 2 german shepherds on holiday, and we stopped at The Patterdale Hotel in the hope that they served non residents and we could get tea and sit on the lawn with the dogs. I ordered tea for 2 and tried one of the Chefs homemade Borboun biscuits, the biscuit was the... More

Stayed here for a weekends walking, amazing value with dinner bed and breakfast included. The situation of the hotel is stunning and the views around Patterdale/Ulswater area are breath taking. Highly recommend you ask for a room at the front of the hotel

Stayed here on a couple of occasions while on walking holidays. It is a real walkers' hotel, the accommodation being 'no frills' but always clean. tidy and warm. The hotel is in a magnificent setting, overlooking the fells and only a short walk to Patterdale and Genridding. The food is fantastic and the staff are always friendly. Usually we book... More

The Patterdale Hotel and the friendly staff, in all areas, have ensured another wonderful stay for the third consecutive year. Nothing is too much trouble for this welcoming crew. This includes catering for my wife’s special diet. We look forward to returning with our walking group next year. Needless to say, the Patterdale Hotel is an ideal base for walkers.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October. The hotel was packed but the service was excellent - all the staff were friendly, polite and helpfull. The room was fine, we had no shower, just a bath, but we knew this on booking. The hotel was full and this was the only room available. The room was clean,... More
