Very difficult to locate. Room was small and dingy. Very little parking available,had to park in the road. Seems that they had a staffing problem while we were there.The food was okay, but not great. Very scenic area but that does not compensate for the lousy rooms. The tables were sticky and it felt as though I wanted to get... More

We spent three nights here. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, special award must go to Millie who handled Mother-in-Law's exacting toast requirements (to be served nearly burnt) with charm and competence. The beers were excellent, huge array of ciders too. The views from the rooms are inspiring and beautiful. The décor is such that arriving back wet and... More

Just a quick note to thank all the staff for a very enjoyable 3 night stay last weekend. A great venue, both our Bearded Collies were treated very well as were we and we look forward to our next visit. Did not experience any bad smells, food was extremely good and the wine very good value. Wifi was a bit... More

Awful! Rooms so shabby and smell awful - if didn't have the Dog with us wouldn't have stayed! Needs the Hotel Inspector! Staff friendly enough bit won't be going back! Shame because good location needs loads TLF to get it up to scratch.

Fantastic pub, had dozens of real ales and ciders to try when we called in. However I have to say a huge thank you to the staff who kindly helped us clean up our kids who had somehow got gloss paint all over them from a some freshly painted railings in the village! That alone deserves a 5 star review!

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
