Lovely setting and excellent staff, spoiled for us by a noisy wedding, right under our window, that went on until about 1.00 am. One other annoyance was the large number of flies. The weather was hot but surely the staff can see the diners trying to swat them and keep them off their food

Stayed here for a family wedding. What an amazing place and what beautiful scenery. We had a balcony room which has the most stunning views of the gardens and lakes. Couldn't recommended highly enough. The restaurant serves lovely food, real quality.

Called in for lunch whilst touring Western Lake District. The ambience was very welcoming, the menu was fairly extensive and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the wine was very overpriced. The service was efficient without being obtrusive.

I went with friends to this place hoping to get some decent food as the Hotel looked ok from the outside. The sandwiches were well below average and the roast beef was almost red raw. The creamed potato was cold and completely tasteless even though we had to wait almost half an hour. The stew was average but again not... More

I cannot praise the manager and staff highly enough. In December 2015 when Storm Desmond struck and the village flooded we were staying at the nearby Glenridding Hotel. This hotel was completely flooded and we were asked to leave.(I don't know where they expected us to go as the village was cut off and we were trapped) Although full to... More

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
