Years ago my wife and I trudged past this place in the pouring rain on our way to some grim youth hostel further up Borrowdale. We agreed that one day we'd stay there - poor students with modest aspirations - but when we saw the Travelzoo offer we couldn't resist booking. Now this is a hotel that really knows its customers - it caters for a mature crowd but really does do it with style and quality. The ground floor bar and lounges are comfortable and relaxed without the over-styled modernism that bedevils so many hotels these days. But it's really the bedrooms that are the major plus. We had an upgrade to a "fell view" room - third floor towards the back of the hotel - and it was all you could possibly need. Recently refurbished, comfortable beds, large bath and space to sit and ponder the surroundings - all you could want really. The food in the restaurant was uniformally excellent with a top notch maitre d' and the usual efficient, friendly service you receive from Eastern European staff. Hard to fault really - the lift is erm "characterful" - but the setting and the service is excellent. A short walk takes you on to the round lake walk and you can always get a boat back if you don't fancy doing the complete round. Perhaps a little old-fashioned for some people, but for those who seek relaxing surroundings with an unobtrusive customer service style then this is hard to beat. We'll definitely be back.

Hotel Improvement works 2017 We have exciting plans to create a new chapter in the history of the Lodore Falls Hotel. The ground floor of the hotel will be completely renovated at the start of 2017 and will be completed by mid-February 2017. From the start of our renovations in January 2017 our leisure club and beauty salon will remain closed until Summer 2018, when we reveal our brand new luxury spa and a brasserie restaurant with an outdoor terrace, as well as 18 new exclusive bedroom suites. While this carefully planned development is underway we will do everything in our power to ensure these works do not impact on our guests experience. ... more less
