This is a wonderful find. So peaceful yet with easy access to the main road, bus stops nearby so no need to use the car once you have arrived. Plenty of walks from the hotel. This is a family (on site) run recently extended hotel with old fashioned traditional values and exceptional service. From the moment we arrived we felt... More

We've just enjoyed our fourth absolutely wonderful celebratory Borrowdale Gates experience, and it was just as perfect this time as the other 3. This time we had grandchildren with us and the 10 year old declared that it was simply the best hotel she had ever stayed in. And she's stayed in plenty in case you wondered. Some different staff...

We have stayed here several times before, but never written a review. We like this place for a number of reasons, stunning location with excellent views from the hotel and bedroom, peaceful and very pleasant surroundings and can walk along derwent water to Keswick without moving the car. We normally book a deluxe room, very comfortable, clean and fresh, the... More

The room was a really good size with a lovely bathroom and good sized wardrobe and storage and very very clean. We had... More

Nver easy for this hotel when 16 of us and 3 dogs arrive unannounced, hot and sweaty after walking from Keswick, but they managed admitrably, luckily as the day (Easter Sunday) was so beautiful we were all sat on the lawn outside in the sun. Drinks were dispensed calmly and pleasantly without any fuss. sandwich orders were taken quickly after... More

Been visiting the Gates several times a year for some time now. Only one word can sum up the hotel, ambience, staff and food - "perfect" . The location of the hotel at Grange in Borrowdale is ideal for those of us who wish to park their cars and leave them until their departure as there are so many walks... More

We had a beautiful, peaceful weekend in this amazing hotel. It was our first time in Borrowdale and we enjoyed it so much. The service, food and location are all second to none. Thank you to all the staff for making it so special for us
