Great location next to the Lake. Hotel overall looks a little tired although the staff are very welcoming. Dog friendly but room sizes not really suitable for larger breeds. Orangery restaurant menu disappointing - more like a lower level eatery.

We had a beautiful modern room with a fell view. We used the Jacuzzi. The beautiful situation of hotel gives you a view from the bar .. lounge and orangery into a lawn with fell views beyond and overlooking the water at Glenridding. We had an excellent 3 course evening meal ... plenty of choice. Also wine menu was varied....

We have stayed here several times now and each time we can't wait to return. The location, on the shore of Ulleswater , is breathtaking with beautiful gardens and a terrace on which to sit. Our lakeview bedroom gave the most wonderful views. We were treated to displays from house martins, swifts and swallows. An added delight. The lounges are...

The Inn on the Lake is in an absolutely spectacular setting and is a truly beautiful establishment. My partner and I arrived salivating for lunch. After some initial hiccups about which was the correct dining room (signs or staff on hand would be helpful) we found the correct location which was charmingly decorated although the atmosphere was similar to that...

Great location, amazing views, pleasant if slow service and astonishingly high prices. Is this Mayfair or Manhattan? No, it's in the middle of the Lake District. OK, so it's an area renowned for not being shy on pricing but this takes the biscuit!

Booked here for a birthday meal with my wife after having a lovely lunch earlier this year. Sadly the full evening meal experience was not so good. The menu was quite slim on choice middle of the road. The starter selection was quite restricted so tried the mackerel, beetroot and vanilla but very bland and tasteless. Main course was the...

We stayed for 3 nights in a lakeside room. The view was breathtaking, the furnishing and decor a bit dated, the bathroom just refurbished ,the housekeeping was outstanding. We brought our dog and the hotel is exceptional in their dogwelcome, which was lovely. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The food was varied but the ubiquitous dish of vegetables...

The location is fantastic, right by lake Ullswater. The gardens were beautiful when I was there with many blossom trees. The interior was spacious and very relaxing. Service was very good. The menu was different every day with some great choices. My room was comfortable with a lovely modern bathroom.

My wife and I organised a get together with friends and had a wonderful time. The facilities were great and the location is second to none. All that was topped by lovely food and great service. It will be a very tough act to follow at our next get together.

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
