Our third visit to this lovely hotel, this time in superior room Fairy Glen, a very spacious and well appointed room. All the delightful touches were there: complimentary fudge and small bottle of wine, plenty of teabags and decent biscuits. The meals are a highlight in the hotel with a seasonal menu and daily menu for dinner. The food is... More

This is a traditional hotel in one of the quietest spots in the Lakes - if you are looking for spas and pools it's not for you, it is simple luxury- a great place to unwind. The food from breakfast to dinner is superb, served in a dining room with breath-taking views to Castle Crag and The Borrowdale Valley. The... More

The hotel experience was somewhere between average and very good - probably simply "good". It Is in a pretty location, the rooms are adequate but should be at the price and the facilities are overall good. This is not a place frequented by the young and during our stay (admittedly only one night) the average age of the 40 or... More

My husband and I spent three nights at this hotel. We had a fantastic time. The food was excellent and the staff could not do enough to help with any query. The hotel is privately owned by Colin and Joy and they have done their best to make you feel at home. The receptionist Sue is a wealth of information... More

We hadn't visited the lake District for many years and decided to have a short break in Borrowdale and we chose the Borrowdale Gates Hotel after reading many reviews. It was the best thing we could have done. The hotel is in a wonderful spot. I couldn't believe the peace and quiet of the gardens. We had a very spacious... More

The hotel is very nice and has excellent reception rooms and restaurant all with stunning views through large windows. The room we had was a superior room and it was a good size, well decorated...

Very comfortable hotel, most of the staff were very friendly, dog was welcome in room (but no where else). Food was delicious, views from the hotel were beautiful and location great for walking. They did run out of breakfast items and a couple of the staff a little brusque. I would recommend it.

I stayed at the Borrowdale Gates hotel last week with my elderly mother for 4 nights, and found the service, food and level of comfort and facilities to be excellent. The menus for dinner offered plenty of choice over 4 evenings, and all the dishes were delicious. Thank you to all the very friendly and considerate staff. The views from... More

I booked the Borrowdale Gates hotel for our anniversary weekend. I wanted something special to celebrate the 35 years I have spent with the woman who won my heart the very first time I set eyes on her. I wanted to surprise her with a romantic weekend away that she would recall with fondness and love, so of course I... More
