Just had the most wonderful weekend with friends, at this hotel. The staff are so helpful and attentive, the position of the hotel couldn't be any better, situated at the end of Ullswater and surrounded by wonderful scenery and walks! The rooms are extremely comfortable with very comfy beds and the food was lovely. We can't recommend this hotel highly... More

We have just returned after spending 3 nights at the Patterdale Hotel with friends, once again the staff were all very friendly and worked hard. We did feel that the evening meal was not of usually good standard of previous visit

After a walk up Arnison Crag (1424 ft), (the path accessed from the back of the Hotel) we were in need of refreshment and sat on a bench-with-table on the lawn - beer for him, shandy for me and the most delicious, light, succulent, fruity Blueberry muffins we've ever tasted! Can't rate the hotel because we didn't stay there but... More

This was our first visit to The Patterdale Hotel but am certain it wont be our last. We were given a warm welcome on arrival at reception and had plenty time to settle into our comfortable room on the second floor with beautiful views from both windows. As we had booked for half board, we were very pleasantly surprised by... More

We received a warm welcome and our Lakeland room was comfortable with a very good view. There are a number of choices for breakfast and evening meal and the service is very good. There is free Wi-Fi and parking. It is competitively priced too.
