We came up for a friend's wedding nearby and had heard good reports about this hotel, so booked for one night. The staff were friendly, helpful and, as previously arranged, gave us an early check in so we could get ready for the wedding. I'm glad we weren't staying longer really. As the reviewer below, we stayed in Room 1.... More

When we arrived we were shown around the hotel by the owner who pointed out the bar area and the breakfast room to us. He mentioned if we wanted to eat in the hotel we should probably book as they get busy. He wasn't wrong, all the tables were full both evenings. We stayed for two nights in room 9... More

Establishments like The Mortal Man give the Lake District a bad name. Had it not been for the beauty of the surrounding area I would not have stayed. Avoid room 1, it is a small shabbily decorated room, an underlying cooking odour pervades all corners of the room (kitchen situated below). The double bed was only three quarters in size,... More

I'm reviewing this as a pub, not as a hotel. Our group of six had a hearty pub lunch of generous proportions with good beers and friendly service to match. Special mention for the smoked haddock chowder.

A nice, down to earth and friendly place to stay. Unpretentious and good value. The breakfast was freshly cooked and served by a friendly waiter. Our dogs were allowed in our room and could have come into the bar if we had wanted them to. All in all would recommend this hotel especially for its location and superb views.

this is food trencherman style (but we had been warned and had a starter - massive pate for two of us and a v tasty black pudding for 3rd person in the party. Cheery service and loads of tables, many with a good view. Service was a bit on the slow side, but probably because so rightly popular,

Luckily we got the best room in the house, well it was my birthday treat. Fantastic views a glorious setting and luckily good weather for the time of year so was able to sit outside for a while. The pub itself was not too busy as it was in the week but the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The meal... More
