What a fantastic 2 day break, it truly was a most memorable experience. The Accommodation was excellent; the food superb and the staff were helpful and very pleasant. I have travelled the world and stayed in some wonderful hotels and this is up there with the best of them. Many thanks, Rab & Christine

Jack pot! My husband and I have visited this area for many years- alone and then with our children. We recently decided to take my mother in law for her 80th Birthday who has never visited the Lake District and how delighted we were to have chosen the Borrowdale Gates Hotel. The hotel was absolutely delightful, totally professional and probably... More

Another perfect stay at the Borrowdale Gates Hotel, big thank you to all the staff and to the chef who catered for my special diet with such ease. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked two return visits. I can highly recommend this hotel.

These were all the things we needed from our fourth stay at the Borrowdale Gates Hotel. Each was there in abundance. From the moment we arrived everything fell smoothly into place, including the superb 5 course dinners. The fourth different room we've had was as good if not better than the last. Excellent, polite staff even shared a laugh with... More

Firstly all of the staff are very friendly and welcoming, the deluxe double room I stayed in was very cosy, clean and stylish. I have a very specific diet, in which it was no trouble at all for the chef and waiters to cater to my needs, even making changes and alternatives to the meals, something that I seem to... More

When you are looking for a welcoming country house hotel to escape from the rain and the wind of a dismal winter, then this is it. We have been going to this hotel for many years. It has had previous caring owners, but the current owners, Colin and Joy Harrison, have refurbished this lovely house to a high standard while... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days with our baby between Christmas and New Year. Service was very friendly but not always as swift as you might wish. We also found that assistance was rarely volunteered, it always had to be requested. I slightly had the impression that they could do with a couple of extra staff. Our... More

We have been coming to Keswick all my life and have stayed in many hotels but I have to say for the personal touch this hotel takes some beating. We booked for the new year stay for four nights, back in august 2013, when we arrived not only did the receptionist remember our names she had also remembered we liked... More

Stayed on my own (getting a great single rate deal on a double room) for a few days to "get away from it all". Great service and lovely breakfasts. Location is perfect - you can while away several days just setting out on day walks from the hotel and never use the car. Perfect.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights over the Christmas period, our first ever Christmas break away from home. We could not have chosen a better hotel. The hotel itself is set in lovely Borrowdale about 4.5 miles south of Keswick across a double humped back bridge (built in 1675), drive through the small hamlet of Gates with... More
