We have just had a great time at the Borrowdale Gates Hotel again, our third visit. Great room, service and food. Very helpful staff team. First class food with great attention to detail and requirements, we always get great weather, just how do they do it...but we do appreciate the magic.

We have been there many times and this is now is our go-to, dog-friendly UK hotel. It enjoys gorgeous setting of the Lake District with fabulous walks; it has charming and attentive staff and the food gets better every time we visit. Derwentwater is nearby for a scenic walk and Keswick, a few minutes' drive away, is a delightful town.

We had a terrible journey as the M6 and the M42 had sections closed. It was obvious we would be late and were expecting guests to join us for dinner. I phoned reception who couldn't have been more helpful. They welcomed our guests and made sure they had a drink and were comfortable. We had an excellent meal and then... More

The staff and service are outstanding from the moment you arrive. The rooms are comfortable, clean, with every attention to detail. The food is amazing, make sure every person orders a different dish so you can all taste. Finally the location of the hotel is beautiful, peaceful and extremely relaxing.

The lakes are the place I would most like to return to and this hotel was wonderful. It's just a magical setting and everyone there went out of their way to make it special. We stayed in the Castle Crag room it was very nice. I appreciated the blend of some more modern comforts ( large bathroom) with a traditional... More

We happened upon this hotel having taken a few wrong turns, however I am so glad we did because I will consider An overnight stay or two in the future. We decided to pop in to the hotel for coffee and a break having driven through the Lake District for a couple of hours. As it was early afternoon and... More

The Borrowdale Gates Hotel proved to be, for us, a wonderful surprise. Yes, it is very highly rated, but we have learned that highly rated hotels can be disappointing. Miserable owners, poor welcome, dirty and poorly maintained rooms and underwhelming cuisine can ruin a stay. This hotel not only lived up to expectations it exceeded them in every way. We... More

Hotel set at the far end of Derwentwater loads of walks on the doorstep without needing the car. We loved the hotel very clean. New bathrooms. Good selection at breakfast. Dining room has lovely views over the gardens. Would have been good to have the choice for evening meal to have more of a bar meal with just two courses.... More

We loved this hotel particularly as we got a free room upgrade! Great country views. Hotel is clean, recently renovated and hard to fault. Staff are particularly friendly and welcoming, always a good sign of a well managed hotel. Rooms were lovely and comfortable and had everything we wanted. Only very minor gripe is that it closes very early in... More
