Recently stayed at the Haweswater Hotel whilst on business. The hotel is set by the side of the lake with the most stunning views. My room was the Haweswater suite and was lovely. Very comfortable bed, flat screen TV, and a stunning modern bathroom with TV above the jacuzzi bath...bliss!
The room was one of the more expensive ones and a couple of collegues in other rooms didn't have TV's in their rooms. Not a problem for some but I suppose you would expect a TV as standard these days.
Room was clean and nicely furnished, tea and coffee making facilities and I heard no noise over the 2 nights we stayed.
The food at The Haweswater is fantastic. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the 'Gastropub' menu had an excellent selection and was delicious both nights. Breakfast was a choice of cooked and continental. Good selection of cereals, fruits, yoghurts, juices and the cooked breakfasts were fantastic...all prepared on ordering, succulent sausages, generous portions...suffice to say we were all stuffed afterwards! Even if you don't stay in the hotel I would certainly recommend the restaurant.
We stayed mid-week and the hotel itself seemed quite quiet, perhaps would be busier on the weekends. You certainly feel 'away from it all' at this place as there are no other buildings anywhere nearby. If you enjoy walking/climbing then staying here is ideal as you are a short walk from many of the mountains.
The staff were all very helpful too and everyone seems to 'muck in' with all different jobs, from reception, to barman, to waiter.
A very pleasant stay.
