We returned to Borrowdale Gates after a 10 year hiatus brought on by the sudden and steep decline in the hotel following its sale to a group of investors. It was a delight to see the hotel now owned and run by people (Colin & Joy Harrison) who care about their guest's experience. We stayed in one of the new... More

I have just returned from one night at the Borrowdale Gates Hotel where I had a cosy, high standard, ensuite room (accessible by lift). It was spacious & well equipped with colour TV, direct dial telephone & morning tea & coffee tray. The decor is modern and tasteful & the hotel staff are delightful and efficient, especially the lady on... More

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions in recent years and it has always come up to our expectations. Our latest visit earlier this month reinforced our opinion that this is a hotel of the highest quality. The bedroom was well-furnished and clean, with fine views. The food was excellent with some changes to the menu each day.... More

Situated 15 minutes drive from Keswick beyond Derwentwater this is a lovely, family run country hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and pleasant. The breakfast, tea and dinner is really excellent. The lounge and lounge bar is very homely, with beautiful views of the hills and local wildlife - look out for red squirrels (although they were on holiday when... More

We enjoyed our visit to the hotel and the beautiful Borrowdale valley for four days recently. Despite the snowy weather the hotel was warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious (apart from one morning when oddly the eggs and sausage was lukewarm) with the service attentive and courteous. Our room on the ground floor had a lovely...

We stayed at Borrowdale Gates from 7 March and enjoyed great views, good walking, a beautiful room and fantastic food. This is a lovely hotel that outshines the local competition and I know where we shall be staying next time we go to the lakes We loved it - thank you

Myself (30) and my partner (28) had a two night stay at the Borrowdale Gates Hotel on the 7th and 8th of March, 2015. We enjoyed walks around Keswick town and the Borrowdale hills and countryside. But what made our trip extra special was how fantastic the hotel was. We stayed in a 'superior' room which was very clean and... More

From the moment we pulled into the car park and walked into reception, we knew that this was a very well run hotel. The staff were extremely helpful, polite and well informed. We were shown to our room and given all the necessary information regarding the facilities. The bedroom, standard quality, was clean and comfortable as was the en suite.... More

This was our first visit but will not be our last. Having stayed at several other hotels in the area, this is the best in our opinion. Step through the door and you enter a haven of peace and tranquillity, where you will be looked after extremely well by attentive yet unobtrusive staff. The food is exceptional and a credit... More
