We stayed here on a Groupon deal which was basically half price - only done as a last minute thing and we were very impressed. Only 2 nights but that was fine for us Closer to the road than I imagined but it was very quiet so didn't bother us even as we were on the ground floor Main reason... More

Just recently stayed at the lodge and on approach the place looked great. Little off the beaten track and was surrounded by beautiful scenery and beautiful cows and livestock. Rooms were basic, but pleasant and could perhaps have tea and coffee facilities for night or bed service. The huge drawback and some other guests mentioned this also is the uncomfortable... More

Hey, it's a lodge and it's in a vale. Not really a hotel as such but for a cheap, good quality stop-over in the heart of the Lakes you can't go wrong. Rooms are basic, clean and functional. Some don't even have windows except for velux but no matter, it's all you need - especially if you arrive late and... More

We stayed here during June and it was really nice place. It is a newly built and the rooms were adequate. It is comfortably for couple but if you have children you need to check as it may be small. Everything was fine and this hotel is convenient if you are costing both south and north lakes. Breakfast isn't so... More

We stayed as a family group of 5 in 2 rooms (room 3 with window, room 10 with skylight). The hotel is conveniently located, with clean and modern rooms which were lovely and warm. The skylight was not a problem, but may not suit all. Check in was efficient. Breakfast: continental with reasonable range of items; dining room barely accommodates... More

Beautiful building set in beautiful country. Giving amazing views. Clean and modern design. Good rooms. Refreshing continental breakfast. Only downsides were bed was too firm for my liking and option for a full english breakfast would of been nice. Would defernetly recommend though and would defernetly think about staying again.

I have stayed twice this year (2014) at the Lodge in the vale and have just booked a third stay next month (June) and bringing three friends with me from Iceland. Fantastic staff, sooo helpful and friendly. I wish more hotels had their lovely attitude. Nice modern, clean rooms and all you can eat for breakfast. On top of this... More

Clean and modern hotel located conveniently between Keswick and Grasmere. Room was modern, although a little small, with a clean bathroom. Breakfast was more than adequate with a range of cereals, pastries, bread, fruit and yogurts to choose from - just as good as you would get elsewhere in the Lakes (there was an option to have a cooked breakfast...

Stopped here for a little break and found the Lodge very comfortable, clean and with some great views. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but that was no problem. We were told we could leave our bags and return later to check in if we preferred. We were made very welcome by excellent staff. Great base for a... More
