“Consistently impressive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

My partner and I have stayed here on two occasions this year and have been so impressed each time. The entire place is beautifully appointed throughout. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable and the Bath House toiletries are a nice touch. The food is lovely and we can both recommend the 'monumental' fish and chips! The staff are attentive and remembered us from our first visit. They made us feel welcome and totally relaxed - nothing was too much trouble for them. We will most definitely keep returning to the Plough and would highly recommend it to others without hesitation. Thank you for two lovely stays!

We had our wedding at the Plough. I can say enough positive things about it. Both my husband and I and all our wedding guests were overwhelmed how wonderful the venue looked, the fabulous service and the beautiful food.
I stayed overnight in the Torsin room and it was perfect for the entire bridal party to get ready in with lots of space and beautiful surroundings and most importantly a huge bathroom.
My parents and my sister also stayed and we enjoyed an excellent breakfast, which prepared me for the day. I really recommend the muesli!
Abi - the manager has been from the first a wonderful factor in the preparation of our wedding. At times she has even been a great friend and confident and is supremely well organised and well versed on what you do and don't need and how to arrange the perfect day! I also cannot praise the staff enough. This quality of service is sadly rarely found.
My advice would be that provided you are organised they will ensure the day is flawless.
We had three options of menu. We were overwealmed by the fantastic standard of food. Wedding food is rarely this good. We had a jazz band and disco which the Plough could easily accommodate. It suited all age groups with a wide variety of seating and areas to sit.
We had all the rooms booked out at night so we and family and friends could stay and a lovely family breakfast in the morning.
I have really joyous memories of our day and the Plough was key to it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

My husband booked The Plough as a birthday treat for me on the 27th July and what a treat it was. We stayed for 2 nights in the Torsin room and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was magnificent and huge with a wonderful, luxuriously and comfy superking size bed. The bathroom, also large and out of this world with a gorgeous, refreshing waterfall shower. The food in the hotel could not be faulted with lots of choice on the dinner menu. The only criticism we would make was breakfast was continental with an extra charge for a cooked breakfast. I did think this was a little naughty as it was not explained on their website. Apart from that the whole experience was a joy and we intend to visit again in the autumn

My partner and I stayed at The Plough at Lupton in August 2011. The booking process was really easy and the staff on reception were so friendly. We stayed in the Torsin Room which was everything a boutique B&B room should be. It was spacious had all the mod cons but with real character, in fact although we'd come up to see friends and of course the great out doors we would have liked to spend more time in the room.
We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was really good. The atmosphere was also really nice and warm. We had breakfast in our room on the Sunday morning before we left and what a feast.
I would love to return here at some point and would highly reccomend this B&B. I have family that live near by and they all rave about the food too.

Room Tip: The Torsin room is excellent with the added feature of a stand alone bath and a huge shower if you d...

We booked this as a last minute stop due to poor camping weather, and were very impressed. Great rooms, service and food, will definitely return, rain or sun!

We had read a glowing review of this inn some months ago in the travel section of the Sydney Morning Herald and booked a midweek 2 night deal with dinner on one night. We were not disappointed, although the Torsin suite which is said to be the best room wasn't available. We stated in the Harrington suite which was beautiful with a luxuriously appointed bathroom with lovely toiletries. Breakfast included was continental only so it was extra if you wanted a hot breakfast. We loved having large wooden tables for breakfast with lots of room for the newspapers which were provided.
Dinner menu was excellent with the garlic prawns a particular standout.
Although the inn is on the main road there is not much traffic noise and we found it easy to drive around the Lakes and back in one day.
