I've always dreamt about staying at this iconic hotel on the boarder of the lake, so I was amazed to be offered a one night "manager special" including dinner... a very good deal! We ended up with a really good large room, with a beautiful view out to the woods and a delicious dinner. Such an inspiring location: we had an amazing walk on the fells the following day. The only drawback is that its a big hotel and you don't feel 'individual', particularly if you have tea in the afternoon.

Room Tip: we had mountain view, but on upper level. Lovely view of the woods.

What a wonderful hotel. It's location is stunning. My pictures are from the hotel and a short walk from it. The staff cannot do enough. The facilities are excellent. Small pool but it's adequate. You can book outdoor jacuzzi times (20 mins).
The food is exceptional. I will definately be revisiting the Ladore Falls again.
Oh dog friendly too

My husband and I chose to go for a short break at this hotel arriving on Good Friday to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Forty years ago we went to the same hotel for our honeymoon.
We arrived too early for check-in so decided to go for a boat trip on the lake until our room was ready. We couldn't believe it when we were told that the boats weren't running because there wasn't enough water in the lake (after all the floods!). However it didn't deter us. We walked over the road to the jetty where there was a sign saying the boat was unavailable from a couple of places but we realised that we'd be able to jump on the bus ( from just outside the hotel) and go into Keswick and board a boat there. We went right round the lake which takes about 50 minutes. The 'round the lake' trip on the boat costs £10.50 each. I think the bus into Keswick costs about £2.30 from the hotel. Of course if you are able, you can walk into Keswick along the lakeside.
We returned to the hotel which is in a gorgeous location and had lovely scones, fresh cream and jam plus a drink.
We had paid extra for a 'Lake-View' room but when we 'checked-in' we were 'over the moon' to be told that we had been upgraded to the Tower Suite. That really was the 'icing on the cake' for us and made our Anniversary even more special. I must state that the hotel did not know that it was our Anniversary. The room has beautiful views.
We had the three course evening meal. My husband is quite a 'fussy' eater but he found something for all three course that he liked. I chose steak which had a £5 supplement but was worth it. We had a carafe of red wine which we thought wasn't any more expensive than other hotels we have stayed in.
Breakfast in the hotel was good too. Good choices, both hot and cold and fresh juice (which is especially important to me as I don't drink tea or coffee). The cooked breakfast is freshly cooked to order and 'The Cumbrian Breakfast' has every breakfast item you can think of to set you up for the day ahead.
I also used the swimming pool whilst we were there. Went for a quick swim before breakfast and the pool was quiet then and also a nice temperature.
We found all the staff to be pleasant and helpful. We asked our waiter if he would take a photo of us and he was happy to oblige.
Would like to return to this hotel and won't leave it another 40 years!

We chose to have our wedding at the Lodore Falls Hotel as it is our favourite hotel. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the food is amazing and the views are spectacular.
We cannot praise every single member of staff highly enough, from the waiting staff, the housekeeping staff to the amazing ladies that helped make our wedding the most perfect day ever.
Firstly we would like to say a huge thank you to Daryl for helping us to organise our special day. Nothing was too much trouble and her and Lynsey made sure every idea we had for our wedding turned into reality. Daryl even organised a photobooth for us at the last minute when we were let down by the company we had booked.
Our second special thank you is to Jeanette. She was so friendly and made sure our day ran perfectly even though it was pouring with rain and we couldn't take our guests on the lake cruise we had planned for them.
Last but definately not least we want t to say a huge thank you to Orsi. She looked after us and our guests so amazingly, making us feel so special. All day and night long she was there to help us with anything we needed and again, nothing was too much trouble. We were so lucky to have such wonderful ladies looking after us on our wedding day.
We had the most magical, incredible day and a wonderful 4 night stay at the hotel and will definately be back very soon. We will also be booking our 1st anniversary at the Lodore Falls. Thank you for everything. From Lex and Martin Reed xx

Called in as a port of call on a boat trip. Ordered coffee and an afternoon tea of scone and tea bread. Waited 15 minutes for coffee and then after 20 minutes were told the tea bread was not available but we could have cake instead. Again waited 5 minutes for it to appear. Taste was OK but we had to rush as we had to catch our boat back to Keswick because our parking ticket was up. Had everything not taken so long then we would have had plenty of time. Also as we were leaving we heard one of the members of staff using foul language, not about us but nevertheless it was language we did not wish to hear. Won't be coming again.

Dear 'Symphony5'

Thank you for your review, please except my apologies for the disappointment following your short visit to the hotel. It would be helpful to know what day you came in so I can investigate why it took so long. On busy days we can have a full drop off from the boat and as such we get very busy and this in turn can lengthen the time food and drink is delivered. The foul language is unacceptable behaviour and will remind all of the team of this.

Kind regards

Matt Collins
General Manager
