We stayed between Christmas and New Year, 3 nights, and ate in for 2 nights, going to the local 'spa hotel' for the other. A stunning location for a winter's morning, great walks easy and gnarly on the doorstep. The interiors are well balanced between elegant 'manse' style and cosy pub with log fire. The food was very good modern...

There were 19 of us for lunch & we ordered right across the menu & the kitchen really delivered... Highly recommend (& MUCH better than the nearby Langdale Hotel) It's very close to a lovely walk along the river, friendly staff & reasonably priced..

It is about 24 years since our previous visit to this hotel situated in a lovely part of the lakes with easy access to the Langdale Valley and Ambleside. It was in need of drastic changes to update it's tired decor and fittings. Well it happened! The period features have been retained and it is now a beautifully fitted and...

We stayed for a long weekend to celebrate my 50th birthday and would thoroughly recommend this hotel. The hotel itself is a lovely old building with furnishings and decor of a high standard. Our room had a wonderful view. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was superb.

We visited recently and stayed two nights in total. We also had extra guests to come for dinner with us on the first night to celebrate my Grans 90th. The staff were very accommodating and helped with organising the cake decorations etc. The food was excellent and the drinks a flowing. They have some fantastic real ales on offer and...

We fell upon this place after a long walk in the fell above Elterwater. We had lunch there on a Sunday. They were able to accommodate us in a very welcoming way. Try the Club Sandwiches, there were to die for.

We returned to The Eltermere Inn after a few years away and found it to be just as good as we remembered. The setting is wonderful with rooms on the front enjoying the best of the views over the lake and the river. The welcome is warm, the atmosphere friendly but not obtrusive and the food is quite simply excellent....

My husband treated me to lunch here for my birthday, we passed The Britannia Inn on the way, it was so busy we carried on five minutes more with our original plan, so glad we did. Ruth & Mark gave a warm welcome on arrival, ordered lunch from the specials board and sat in the delightful gardens basking in the...

Best meal we have had in the Lakes and for me, anywhere. We've had a lot in 30years of visiting including L'Enclume. The Bouilibase starter was generous in the extreme in both flavour and quantity. The pork belly taught me that what is usually an unvarying dish can be done so much better. And the regular waitresses were both charming...

We came here seven nights in a row this time last year and thought it was fantastic (clearly). We booked last night for seven to take some friends. It took us ages to be served and when we did the two waitresses and waiter were unbelievably rude and unaccommodating. We had to keep going to the bar to order drinks...
