We stayed here on 27 August 2016 for my brothers wedding. The hotel is set in mesmorising surroundings - absolutely breathtaking. The sun was shining, the wedding was beautiful and the staff were lovely and polite to everyone. It was a hot day and the room did feel really warm, however, it is an old and very elegant building so... More

Dear andyfieldingggggg It does slightly frustrate me when people write such rubbish.

Dear lozzer_10 Forgive for not thanking you for your review, there were a few of you that were less than dignified during your stay.

Stayed here for a friends wedding. Stunning location and lovely garden. Room was very average and the ‘fell view’ was just of the carpark. The shower didn’t work and the plug was jammed shut. No fridge but the bed was big and comfy. The food was not very good. During breakfast I had to ask twice for some coffee and... More

Pleasant hotel on the lake. Very busy which is always a recommendation. The staff were friendly although dealing with a lot of trade. The food is good and wholesome, well presented and served with a smile. We did not stay in the hotel but had lunch when passing through.

We just called in for a coffee on the terrace overlooking the lake and spent a good hour and a half there with just a coffee and a biscuit.

We had a room with balcony overlooking the lake which was fabulous even though the weather stopped us from taking advantage of chilling on the balcony.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn on the Lake Hotel ia a 4 star hotel that enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Lake District in 15 acres of grounds with lawns sweeping to the shores of Lake Ullswater. The Inn on the Lake is only 12 miles from the M6 motorway and the drive is very dramatic with the road curving around the Lake and the backdrop scenery of the fells. There are 47 en-suite bedrooms, all thoughtfully designed with most rooms having breathtaking views, some looking towards the magnificent Helvellyn mountain range, while the majority look over the ever changing Ullswater. Each room is fully equipped with everything you come to expect in this quality 4 star hotel. For that special occasion upgrade to a superior room or one of the very popular, stunning four-poster bedrooms. From the moment you walk into reception you will find an interior that compliments this fabulous setting. This leads through to the popular Lounge Bar where a warm welcome awaits with large bay windows overlooking the well landscaped gardens, which lead to the hotels jetties on Ullswater. Enjoy a drink any time of the day, a light lunch or afternoon tea in the Lounge or on our Lakeside terrace. The award-winning 2 AA Rosette Lake View Restaurant provides something for all tastes, or for less formal dining The Ramblers Bar, situated within the hotel’s grounds, offers the option to enjoy a pint of real ale. The hotel also has its own outdoor activities including pitch & putt, croquet and children's outdoor play area. Gary and his team at The Inn on the Lake Hotel look forward to welcoming you soon. ... more   less
