booked two rooms on Travelzoo deal for a Ruby wedding anniversary. Rate included 4 course dinner each night and breakfast. Rooms had superking size beds and plenty of room and appeared to be recently refurbished as were the public areas. Rooms both had view of the lake and were very quiet. Reception staff were friendly, polite and efficient.
The meals each night were superb and served in a very friendly way in a very timely fashion. Waiting staff were excellent. Breakfast was similarly enjoyed with excellent bacon and good quality tasty sausages.
A small problem with the bill was quickly rectified and the person committing the error appeared , to apologise in person.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel (we had prestige rooms) as we had a very pleasant stay despite some rainy weather in high quality rooms with all the other services all we could have wanted.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled at the foot of Shepherd's Crag in the beautiful valley of Borrowdale, this completely refurbished 4 Star hotel has a totally unique atmosphere enveloping the visitors from the moment they arrive. Warm and welcoming fires in the Winter and cool drinks and Lakeland cream teas on the lawns in the Summer served with a smile. Built in 1866, the Borrowdale Hotel has an interesting history with the original 41 room bells, which, although no longer working, are still proudly displayed outside the reception area. The restaurant has been refurbished to a very high standard and is very elegant and comfortable. It also now boasts a superb walk-in wine cellar stocked with some very interesting bottles. During the day the lounge bar and conservatory are open for light lunches and afternoon teas and in the evening a splendid 5 course silver service dinner can be enjoyed in the restaurant with coffee and mints served in the lounges. The 40 cosy bedrooms have all been refurbished within the last 3 years all have TV, telephone and hospitality tray. There are also 2 extra large, easy-access rooms too. If you are arriving or leaving on a Sunday make sure not to miss the famous Sunday lunch - it is well worth trying, but remember to book your table well in advance, as it is particular popular with both locals and residents. For those looking for dog friendly hotels, all of our bedrooms are dog friendly and are available for well behaved dogs. Please contact reservations for information about our dog friendly accommodation. ... more less
