We stayed here for one night and cannot fault the hotel. I was quite wary when I booked because of the mixed reviews. The hotel is a lovely building in lovely grounds and has clearly had refurbishment in places recently. This was a family visit for my nana's 80th birthday and we booked a half board rate. The staff were... More

On Friday 15th January 2016, my husband and I, together with another couple who were celebrating a 50th birthday, paid our second visit in 12 months, to the Ennerdale Country House Hotel. This time round we upgraded to rooms 1 and 2 which are 4-poster suites - wow! Last year we had standard double rooms. On both visits all 4... More

We arrived on Christmas Eve to a lovely warm friendly welcome and afternoon tea. Dinner that evening was from the menu, both my wife and I chose pork cutlet, unfortunately, when my wife came to eat the middle of her pork cutlet it was undercooked with pink blood showing. We did mention this to the waitress, but as we so... More

Having just returned from a lovely Christmas Break at this hotel I thought I would have to write a review. From the moment we arrived to the morning we left we had a lovely time. On arrival on Christmas Eve tea/coffee with sandwiches and cakes were waiting. Then at 6 o'clock the choristers from the local Church came to sing... More

My wife and I were gifted this getaway as part of a wedding present. I have to say that the customer services were exceptional. Having driven 400 miles and being very tired we ordered room service. The service provided exceeded my expectations, staff were very helpful and courteous, a real credit to the hotel. I would liked to have stayed... More

Yes, I can understand all of the comments about the hotel being a little tired. The communal areas are a tad dated, though I felt that some of the artefacts and paintings in the reception areas, the corridors and even the rooms were actually quite interesting and unusual. What gives this hotel the top marks in my book is the... More
