Just got back to London from a long weekend with my girlfriend and we're already missing it! Friendly staff, great location and a lovely breakfast each morning, what more could we ask for! We stayed in the Whelter Crag room which is lovely, the first thing to greet you upon entering the room is the breathtaking view of the reservoir... More

We stayed here just over 2 years ago under the previous owner and fell in love with this "hidden gem". Our only regret is that we left it until now, far too long, before returning. We have followed with great interest, the regular updates on Social Media and the Hotel's website in regard to the ongoing renovation programme under the... More

After 2 nights elsewhere in the lakes we opted for a Sunday night stay at the Haweswater Hotel. We arrived at a snow bound hotel and immediately loved the feeling of isolation, being the only building on the "lake." To say the least the hotel was quiet, but that meant we were particularly well looked after by Shaun and Zara... More

Just got back from Haweswater for my boyfriends birthday weekend. Power cut, 70 miles an hour winds and sleeting rain for full time we were there. We loved it! Staff were awesome and being stranded in the beautiful Art Deco hotel felt like an Agatha Christie novel, couldn't be happier with our fantastically wierd weekend, all we have to say... More

We arrived late and were not shown to the room, got lost but friendly ladies who were cleaning a room pointed us in the right direction. Room was in the loft, lovely view along the length of Haweswater. Nice art deco feel to the room, and the bathroom was great with roll top bath and huge shower. We loved it.... More

Fabulous away from it all hotel. 9 miles to the nearest village. Hotel extremely well appointed, most staff were helpful & pleasant. Fabulous relaxing Jacuzzi after long walks. Only downfall was limited music/ TV to relax to. House keeping was limited for 2nd night, having to request beverage facilities, otherwise no big deal as i had already made the bed.... More

After driving to the end of Haweswater my husband and I decided to call in for morning coffee on our return. I think it's vital to support rural businesses so headed in here for coffee. It was very quiet and the staff more so almost to the point of looking a little startled that we had asked for two coffees.... More

I am sorry to say we experienced a terrible welcome due to the fact we arrived late 9.30pm. We weren't even shown to the room we had to find it ourselves. The room had fantastic view overlooking the lake but the furniture was quite old. There were quite a lot of spiders and webs in the room but I guess... More
