My daughter and I enjoyed the most beautiful lunch in the Orangery and the staff were so kind and attentive but never crowded us. We were served mainly by Jeremy who was friendly and courteous at...

This hotel has a superb location on the shore of Ullswater, the lawn runs right down to the lakeside. Recently refurbished the hotel was spotless, the staff very pleasant and very helpful.

Dear Ray Marsh Thank you for your lovely comments and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The standard rooms of which there are only 4 don’t have the views or space of the superior rooms and although beautifully decorated it wouldn’t be the same as the Lakeview superior.

We spent a super weekend in Glenridding. It's our second visit and the newly refurbed rooms are a triumph.

Firstly because of the way this hotel respond to negative reviews on Trip Advisor, some of which are bordering on being almost unprofessional. I will qualify that I did contact the hotel on a couple of occasions before our arrival, to advise them that we were staying at this hotel to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The hotel told me...

Dear 007 Let me reply to review in a professional and slightly more dignified manner than the review.

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
