The Patterdale Hotel is in a beautiful location - the views from the bar and dining room are superb. Staff are friendly and efficient. Our room was quite spacious, spotlessly clean and recently decorated. There was a bath/shower and lots of hot water. The bar had three good local ales. There was a sensible limited choice for dinner that allowed... More

Good location in Particular with a large beer garden. Fairly good value food and quite varied menu serving all day. Slightly disappointed that the coleslaw on the side of the plate didn't look very fresh.

This was a return journey, albeit with a gap of 10 years, to the Patterdale Hotel. Key positive is the excellent value for money that the hotel represents. It’s a very good all-round hotel that I would have been happy to pay more for (but don’t tell the owners that!). The hotel itself is a little dated but, in keeping... More

We have visited this hotel a number of times over the years and have loved every visit. The staff are all so friendly and very helpful. The housekeeping is second to none, staff so cheerful and the rooms are spotlessly clean. The veggie food is varied and tasty and there is always too much!

This little hotel is a great place to relax after enjoying the fun of the lakes. The rooms are pretty good for the price and we were fortunate to have a double in the slate section of the building with big sash windows and a nice window seat to enjoy the view. The best thing about this hotel, is the... More

Amazing food... Amazing friendly service .. Two young men from the bar were really helpful .. Patterdale ale was top class... The scones were delicious.. The toasties were delicious .. The tuna sarnie was excellent... no skimping on fillings .. Fresh salad, no limp lettuce .. But my club sandwich was out of this world .. Thank you

We have just returned from our 4th visit to The Patterdale & it never fails to impress. We had a lovely large room on the ground floor, spotlessly clean & very comfortable. The meals are amazing with a very good choice. The waiting staff are the friendliest & most efficient we have ever come across. The hotel is set in... More

We love this hotel, part of the Choice Group, one in keswick and I think 3 more in Blackpool. Very comfortable with excellent service throughout, very attentive to the needs of those with food intolerances/allergies like myself as I cannot tolerant gluten. Clean and tidy, nice lounge area with flat screen TV and a separate bar and a smaller quieter... More

A great stay at yet another Choice Hotel. Perfectly situated for the Ullswater Way, Aira Force and the Lake with all its activities. Food to the usual high standard of the Choice Hotels chain, breakfast exactly what you need before a good day hiking - the kippers are second to none. Warm, clean, comfortable, friendly with amazing views. A must... More
