This was our first time at this fine hotel. We have now stayed in the Inn on the Lake and the Best Western in Glenridding, and even though the BW is priced below TIOTL, it is just as good in every way.
The weather was extremely cold (mid March 2013) so we spent more time in the hotel than we had planned, and enjoyed every moment. Much of this time was spent in Ratchers Bar and I must commend the staff there for their friendliness, and the food in Ratchers was excellent, and great value.
The location of the hotel is great for walks around the area - from Helvellyn at the more testing level, to the nearby Lantys Tarn for the more sedate! Both great walks, and of course the nearby Aira Force offers some beautiful woodland walks along a truly lovely stretch of fast flowing river. And from the hotel car park down to the lake by the Boat Landings is only 2 or 3 minutes, and the start of some fine lakeshore walks (see photos...)
My wife and I really enjoyed Glenridding, and we will go back in the coming months, and we will without hesitation stay in the Best Western. (Great breakfast too by the way...)
