A lovely and relaxing holiday. Restaurant is very good - high standard of food and not expensive for the quality. Service was very fast as well. We are in our late 20s and were probably the youngest people in the hotel by quite a way, but that's not a negative comment!
We upgraded to a classic room and had room 28 which was on the front of the hotel with lovely views. The bed was very comfy and I couldn't pick any faults with the room.
There is a lovely path across the road from the hotel which will take you the whole way around Derwent Water.
Drying room is also very handy as we managed to get soaked both days we were there.
We booked through secret escapes and had a free afternoon tea. We got there at 4:30 and were told that the voucher was only valid until 5, so make sure you get there early if you want to use this. They also wouldn't change one of the hot drinks for a cold drink for my boyfriend as he doesn't drink tea or coffee, but he just had a glass of water instead.
- 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
