This was a welcome return visit to the Borrowdale Gates Hotel. Thankfully nothing much has changed, the hotel still retaining the quiet and comfortable atmosphere and the excellent team of staff who can't do enough to make your visit so memorably good. Our five night dinner bed & breakfast deal allowed us to work our way through some of the... More

Great dog friendly hotel. Lovely weekend with excellent room with all facilities, superb food, both breakfast and dinner were outstanding. Lovely and quiet at this time of the year. We were there for a walking and sightseeing break with the dogs and it was in a lovely situation. Not cheap for a weekend away and my only gripe (with myself)... More

We stayed for 1 night in atrocious weather. Borrowdale was saturated. We were made to feel most welcome in a warm dry convivial setting. We met up with friends we had not seen for many years and had an excellent meal. Apart from catching up and reminicing about past experiences, we finished the evening off with some excellent Armagnac whilst... More

Colin, Joy, the owners, Chris, Nick and all the other staff are lovely people, the only person missing was Sue, who was on holiday! The weather was terrible, so bad that one day... More

We have stayed here a few times. The staff are great, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are lovely and very clean. Amazing views in all directions. The restaurant food is fantastic.

Great attention to detail in every room. Friendly staff, excellent food and overall luxury feel without losing a sense of cosiness. This is a hotel for anyone looking for a modern version of old style quality. Open fires to sit around, plenty of binoculars to view the wildlife and peace and quiet.

My friends and I stay here twice a year for four days. We have never been disappointed and our latest stay was no exception. The highest standards are always maintained. A warm welcome is assured by the courteous and friendly staff (great to see Ross back on the team). Although we had rain on most days, the thought of returning... More

We stayed 3 nights here on a walking tour of the Lake District. The rooms, including the bathrooms, are very spacious; ours had beautiful views. The restaurant is excellent and obviously attracts customers from the area as well as the travelers staying at the hotel. There is wonderful exploration to be had just out the door. While we were on... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this wonderful hotel. This is our second trip staying in Room 14 and everything was once again perfect. The staff are so attentive and pleasant and they can't do enough for you. The food is 5 star and beautifully presented. Can't wait to go back and enjoy this fabulous Hotel.
