Just stayed for two nights and wish I had booked longer! Staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. Food very nice indeed. I agree rooms now looking a little dated but it didn't matter as the whole experience was excellent. Great and welcoming with a dog. Definitely be back soon.

Lovely stay at the Mortal Man in Troutbeck; food was wonderful and the staff friendly. Our room was a little "tired", perfectly clean and pleasant but could do with a minor refurb. Wonderful selection of beers and ciders. And the wurrounding countryside, well.... the walk to Ambleside is a must.

This Inn is in the Lake District and convenient to multiple walks and villages. The location earns the "very good" rating. Sitting in the beer garden looking at the hills and wildflowers is a relaxing experience. The Inn rooms are of various sizes and most can be two single or King bed fitted. The bathrooms were updated and included quality... More

We came by The Mortal Man by mistake really as we had intended going to The Queens Head, but found out that it had been burnt down in June 2014. Luckily, a local told us that The Mortal Man was an excellent alternative...and so it proved to be! The bar was quite busy when we got there and so we... More

Lovely stay at this inn in the middle of nowhere yet at the heart of the Lake District. The staff were friendly and obliging and they made our Jack Russell Freddie very welcome. The room was clean and although not 5 star was adequate for our needs. We will be back! The views from room 3 were superb. The food... More

Charming old Hotel with lovely views down the valley, in a quiet area a few miles off the main road, close to Ambleside and Windermere. Nice food in restaurant. Staff friendly. Access road a bit narrow, but light traffic. Nice country or mountain walks from the hotel. Bed was comfortable, room quite spacious.

Very friendly, well run inn. Rooms are a good size, and the room we were given had a refurbished bathroom. The restaurant had a good choice of meals, beers and ciders. Parking can be difficult when busy, and the access to Troutbeck is narrow and steep in places. Overall I can recommend this Inn to everyone.

The scenary is fantastic especially looking out while enjoying an evening meal and breakfast. Both my wife and I will always return to The Mortal Man.... More
