We enjoyed a 2 night break (a gift) at this lovely location. Though our room didn't have a lake view it was very pleasant and the en suite was bright and well appointed. The reception rooms are spacious and light, with a couple of log fires and plenty of (comfortable) seating. The Food in the restaurant was amazing. Slight niggle...

Lovely hotel and location. Good relaxing and open spaces in the hotel. All the staff are friendly and obliging without being ' in your face.' Dinner on the 'A la Carte' was very good; my lamb was cooked as I asked and was 'melt in the mouth.' My wife had the duck and this was cooked well. The staff were...

Simply stunning location and hotel. Not too grand, not too modern and very well run. Perfect location, beautiful views, lots of walking potential and tons of fresh air. Pricey for a little trip but worth every penny for the Brownie points and the sheer decandence

You'll go a long way in the world to find a more beautiful place than the English Lake District. And you'll go a longer way to find a more breathtaking lake than Ullswater. Inn on the Lake sits elegantly on the edge of the lake itself. It's peaceful. It's romantic. It's got everything you could hope for in a Lake...

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
