We have stayed at this hotel regularly over several years and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Borrowdale. Our visit starts with the warm welcome at Reception, normally Lesley, this year Kim, and then the pleasure of finding our room with resplendant decor and every possible comfort. The dining room represents the best of traditional Cumbrian hospitality with excellent food, especially the five course dinner each evening. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and professional. The Managing Director is usually there to assist whilst the owner is regularly seen using the dining room. The hotel is situated in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley so there is amazing scenery from every viewpoint.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Scafell Hotel is a wonderful Country House Hotel located in the very heart of Borrowdale, considered by many as England's finest valley, surrounded by mighty fells, tranquil meadows and crystal clear waters. A paradise for the walker and a perfect centre from which to visit other parts of the Lake District. The Hotel is situated almost at the foot of Great Gable and the Scafell Massif, and is regarded one of the Lake District’s renowned headquarters for climbers and hill walkers. Keen anglers will appreciate the Scafell Hotel, as there is excellent fly fishing on the River Derwent and in Derwentwater. Those who are content with gentle rambling or just lazing on restful lawns fringed by trees amidst imposing scenery will be equally happy staying here. Our rooms were fully refurbished during 2009, in a Warm and Rich Country House style with a ‘Contemporary Twist’ perfect for setting the scene for a peaceful and relaxing break in the beautiful Borrowdale Valley. The Restaurant, Lounges and Bar have been tastefully decorated and furnished to retain that all important Country House warmth, allowing for complete relaxation after a great days walking on the Fells, and maybe even a little ‘nap’ by the fire after a delicious five course Dinner. Under the constant direction of owner’s Miles Jessop MBE (Chairman) and Andrew Nelson (Managing Director) the Management and Team of Scafell Hotel offer truly warm and friendly service. Individual and Independent Country House Hotel for the last 40 years. ... more less
