Just returned from the beautiful Lake District, having enjoyed a wonderful stay in this magical place. A gorgeous setting, fantastic food, warm & friendly staff offering excellent service. A big contrast to our normal sunshine break but have returned feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thank you, we will be back.

Whenever we're in Borrowdale we go for coffee at the hotel. The presentation is lovely and the staff are always very polite serving it. We haven't stayed here since the change in ownership, but from what I've seen, the inside of the hotel looks lovely. Will definitely look at going for dinner here and/or staying overnight.

Our third visit in as many years .What a delight this hotel is.. unpretentious with friendly helpful staff , food superb and rooms comfortable. Dog tolerated rather than friendly, as they are not allowed in any of the public rooms, and you are limited to which rooms you can stay in, but it says a lot that we continue to... More

Had a one night stay and will definitely go back. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms were well appointed - we stayed in the Ashness room - no balcony but still a great view out of the window. Lovely large bathroom with separate bath and shower. The evening meal and breakfast were great. Breakfast is cooked... More

This comfortable hotel lives up to its AA 4 star rating. It is in a serene, calm location. The rooms are large, comfortable and all have great views up or down the Borrowdale valley. My favourite rooms are the Deluxe rooms on the 1st floor ( I have tried rooms 14,12 and 11 over the last 2 years) which all... More

This hotel has large, very comfortable rooms, excellent food, and outstanding service. The area has lots of walking trails that offer spectacular views. Walks from easy to challenging are in the region, making this hotel an ideal place for those who want to enjoy the wonders of the Lake District. The only drawback is that the only public transportation is... More
