“Faboulas stay for our anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We have just enjoyed a lovely anniversary at The Lodore. We booked through secret escapes and throughly enjoyed it. We arrived early but our room was ready and we were upgraded to the tower suite. room was gorgeous and view fantastic, my husband had phoned ahead and got me flowers wine and chocolates in the room. Clean and spaceous we had a shower and stand alone bath with seperate toilet. We enjoyed a cream scone in the lounge, then it went for a swim and had a lovely relaxing glass of wine in the outdoor hot tub(bliss). After changing it was soon time for our evening meal, could not fault anything food fantastic staff and service great. We then enjoyed cocktails in the garden before retiring for the night. Breakfast next morning was also lovely, my husband had a omelette which he said was the best he had ever had. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel special. I would just like to say a big Thank you to everyone at The Lodore, they made our Anniversary a great day. Will be back soon.

Room Tip: Lake view is worse paying a little extra for.

A May bank holiday break for 2, with our dog, to the Lodore Falls hotel was lovely. We enjoyed a lakeview room. The hotel was very nice with elegant decor and roaring fireplaces but larger than the sister hotel Armathwaite Hall, Bassenthwaite, which we both felt was superior. We dined on our first evening - scallops were overcooked and duck arrived well done despite having asked for it to be pink but both were immediately rectified. Breakfast was silver-service which we always look out for when going away for a few days and was very good. The pool and sauna were a little tired and the outdoor hot tub was very tired. Overall, could do with a little more TLC.

Room Tip: Highly reccommend a lakeview room.

We enjoyed a two day stay at this excellent stylish hotel set in wonderful grounds in a superb location. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient, the food excellent, the public areas extensive and relaxed. Our room was perhaps a little compact, especially the bathroom, but very comfortable. Minor criticisms small lift, small indoor pool. We shall certainly revisit the hotel.

I surprised my partner with a night here for his birthday. It was the first time we had left our daughter overnight and it was a well earned break! On arrival we had our room upgraded and found a box of Belgian Chocolates in our room. The leisure facilities were great and having booked the hot tub we spent 45 mins relaxing with a glass of prosecco in the hot bubbles whilst it rained on us...bliss. The food was delicious with so much choice, an employee recommended dishes and she was spot on, we were not disappointed. The only complaint was the bed wasn't very comfortable but on the grand scale this is insignificant. We are looking to return in June and take our daughter with us. This is a fabulous hotel and I would recommend it to anyone.

We can only underline the many positive comments of recent reviews with just a couple of minor niggles. The positives being great customer service, beautifully prepared and presented food and very comfortable public areas. Our 3rd floor Fell view room (310) was well appointed with a lovely view of the waterfall and well maintained gardens. Our room décor was traditional with good quality furniture and really comfortable bed. However, we were surprised that the en-suite bathroom looked tired with cracked floor tiles and very poor finish to the grout.

The highlight of our stay was the evening dinner service. The quality and choice of food was outstanding and the well-trained attentive staff superb. Breakfast was also very enjoyable. The only food we did not like was the tea & scones on arrival. The scones were just too big, tasted doughy and fell apart, maybe they had been reheated, or just not to our taste.

Another minor gripe is the inconsistency of message regarding wi-fi. On arrival we were told that wi-fi was available in the bedrooms. This was not the case in room 310 nor I suspect in some other bedrooms based on anecdotal comments from guests. It was absolutely fine in the public areas.

In summary we thought this was a well managed, impressive hotel that delivered a great customer experience through its motivated and very professional staff. The duty manager Jeanette was particularly helpful as she went out of her way offering us a range of ideas for walks and local attractions.

We look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: Fell view room 310 worth the extra cost

We are local to Cumbria and occasionally dine at the Lodore for a treat. The food and service is always first class. On our last visit we found a new chef on the team, Loredan Gargalac, and the menu even more interesting, eclectic, traditional with a twist, and nothing too much trouble. We particularly enjoyed the local roast venison with a port and chocolate sauce.
