We had a great evening meal here after walking in the area. The menu had plenty of choice and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and we didn't wait long for our meals.

We spent two nights here in June during our first visit to the Lake District. We found the rooms to be comfortable, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful (they even dried our clothes after we got drenched during a hike), and the breakfasts excellent. The village is very small, but set in a lovely location with very nice hikes ranging... More

We stayed at the Fish Hotel as returning guest which we have been doing for the last 16 years and it was as fabulous as always. There rooms are spotlessly clean and well furnished, the breakfast is amazing and the food in the bar is delicious with large portions, just what you need after a long day walking. The atmosphere...

I stayed for two nights with a group of friends. More friends were camping nearby. The location is super and most rooms have great views down to Buttermere and beyond. I stayed in Room 9. It was clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The bathroom looked as though it was new but I was told it had simply been re-decorated. Breakfast... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently for a paragliding event further up the valley. Fortunately our room faced in exactly the right direction for the beautiful views and the flying taking place. If this wasn't amazing enough our stay was made even more memorable by the very friendly staff at this family run establishment. Very welcoming, attentive and helpful... More
