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.

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

Breakfast was fine with a hot and cold buffet, not that many options but food was good although for some bizarre reason Breakfast was only available between 8am and 10am which meant we had to miss out the second day and...

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....

Had a weekend stay at the Patterdale Hotel. We stayed in a Lakeland room with stunning views. For the price of bed, breakfast and evening meal this hotel is great value. 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
