I recently booked a single night in the Borrowdale Gates hotel. From the moment of my arrival to leaving the next morning I had nothing but an excellent experience. I was warmly welcomed at check-in, shown to my room and offered complimentary tea in the lounge. I was eating elsewhere that evening but on my return I used the bar,... More

Long detour due to flooded footpaths led to this hotel. Just wanted coffee and sandwiches but was warmly welcomed by staff despite our bedraggled appearance .treated like royalty. A blissful hour in warm surroundings. Sadly had to leave to continue our walk. Next time will definitely take advantage of accommodation and restaurant at this very good hotel who know how... More

Borrowdale Gates hotel was just the kind of place I had imagined for a Lake District holiday. It is away from the towns and villages so very tranquil. Right at the edge of forest and hills so a pleasure to sit in the balcony in the evening. The dining hall overlooks fields and you can see birds feeding at the... More

This was our second visit to this hotel, the first being several years ago. In the intervening time the guest bedrooms have been updated, while the reception rooms are largely unchanged and as comfortable and traditional as ever. We arrived in mid afternoon, in time to be able to walk down Derwent Water which was looking its best with the... More

We have just spent a wonderful, relaxing 4 days at this hotel with our dog. We were on a hiking break and the hotel location is perfect to walk out onto the fells and leave the car at the hotel! The views from the hotel are, as a result, outstanding. Our room was comfortable, bed very comfortable, and the communal... More

We stayed here overnight en route to Scotland. The hotel is situated in great countryside, and the standard of accommodation is very good - our room had a balcony overlooking the garden. The furnishing were all excellent and the bathroom was also extremely good. The reception staff were polite and very helpful, the assistant manager effusive and over familiar -... More

To say we just popped in for a quiet drink the staff were very courteous and very helpful. We had nuts and seeds free with our drinks and thoroughly... More

This hotel is by far the best in the area. It offers 1st class service, stunning location and the staff who treat you like royalty and nothing is to much trouble. Looking forward to returning again next summer
