We recently spend a three day break at the Borrowdale Hotel having stayed at Lodore Falls twice I would re-iterate what has been said previously. Having paid to upgrade room to superior it did have a lovely view and room was spacious however, it looked as if the bathroom had been updated the room did not, bits of wallpaper torn and furniture definitely had not been updated. Most of the staff friendly and very curtious but receptionist was not happy to provide extra two tiny packs of milk (questioned the need) and would not give us extra packet of biscuits - apparently they are only supplied on first day! I really dont think this is value for money.
- 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
