We were married at the Inn on the Lake on Sat 27 October. From the first contact with the hotel in early January to checking out on 29 October, the staff were absolutely first class. We planned and organised our wedding from overseas. The staff responded quickly and patiently to our numerous queries (what size is x room, how many chairs in Ramblers etc etc).

Throughout the wedding weekend, Gary, Jonathan, Beverley, Holly and the team were just perfect. They were always there when needed, gave us helpful steers when needed, dealt with the varying members of our party and their numerous idiosyncracies. So many other members of staff were good humoured, professional, courteous.

Jonathan was a great toastmaster and really orchestrated the day. We have had so many guests who have thanked us since for picking such a fab hotel and have specifically commented on the quality of the hotel staff. The location is stunning; the staff are attentive and considerate; and the hotel is professional and personal. The Inn on the Lake helped create our perfect day, everything that we could have wished for. Thank you so much for everything, and we look forward to our next visit to this special place.

This hotel was booked for my daughters wedding. From the moment we arrived the day before the wedding we were extremely well looked after and every detail was covered as the proceedings the following day. We had booked a lake view room and it was absolutely wonderful. We had a balcony together with an absolute stunning view of Lake Ullswater. The furnishings in the room were of a high quality and the bed linen equally as nice. The bathroom was spotless and the toileteries supplied were an added luxury. The food throughout the weekend was superb and guests were very complimentary about the hotel in general. The wedding itself was absolutely wonderful and the management of everything was first rate. The only thing they could not control was the weather but that did not spoil a single minute of the weekend. The photographs look wonderful both inside the superbly appointed hotel to the immaculate gardens. When I look at the wedding photographs I want to return back to Inn on the Lake immediately! Will definitely be going back and I know a lot of the guests will be returning. The staff were especially considerate in every aspects and they went beyond their call of duty on many occasion. Could not fault this hotel whatsoever and look forward to our return.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and have a lake view because it is well worth it.

Excellent two nights stay. We were in room 61 which was small very little room around the bed with lots of furniture in the room. Rooms downstairs were excellent with such amazing views. The evening meal was ok on the 1st night but much better on the 2nd night. Staff and customer service on the whole was excellent although one of the waiters was off, when we asked what Bom Bom was on the menu he got very flustered and did not know (was on the menu 3 times) on the 2nd day he almost threw our coffee and tea on the table I think that was because he had to hoover the other side of the lounge! Shame as all other staff were excellent

My husband and myself stayed at the Inn on the lake for 4 nights between 29th October and the 2nd November.We have been fortunate to have stayed in some extremely lovely hotels in the world and I can honestly say this was just as good!!. The hotel was beautiful, set in a gorgeous location and the interior was also beautiful. By the time we left it was all decked out for Christmas and looked like a wonderland . The breakfast and evening meals were top class and the restaurant atmosphere and decor was hard to be beaten. It was also so lovely to come back from a days walking and sightseeing to kick your walking boots off and relax in the lounge in front of the fire and chill. The staff were also attentive and professional .
We will return again in the future and it was well worth the 8 hour drive on the m6 to travel home .
