“Wednesday Wenders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have just spent the bank holiday weekend at the hotel.It was our first "walking" break as a group of six which was made all the more successful by staying at the Patterdale. It is a relaxing place to stay with genuine, friendly, efficient and courteous staff. The rooms were spotlessly clean and bright with excellent views. The food was tasty and plentiful and served with such pleasantness and efficiency that is hard to find in many places today. The manager must be very proud to have such a hard working team.

Room Tip: Rooms 104, 202 & 204 can be recommended.

Excellent stay here in May 13 (although you would never have known it from the weather). Customer service here is outstanding, but the food is also good, the rooms well equipped and overall this hotel offers excellent value for money for walkers looking for a comfortable place to stay in a fantastic location. The packed lunches are also good value and very tasty (especially the cake).

We stayed for three nights. From the 10th of may food was good lovely area. Fantastic staff. My single room was small , yet clean. The hotel attracted some lovely guests, we enjoyed many a chat. I felt rushed between courses at meal time. This didn't spoil my staff though ,the good points out weighed the bad

Room Tip: Single rooms are terrible. Far to small. Pay extra for a twin if. Your a single person

Stayed one night on a DBB deal. Hotel was busy & only twin rooms available - room was comfortable & well equipped. Dinner was very good & breakfast was excellent. there was a singer in bar for a couple of hours (Thursday evening) - she was good & sang a range of songs from 50s to 80s. Although you felt as itf you were in the middle of nowhere this is a good location for touring the lakes as Ambleside, Grasmere etc are all within easy reach. Most guests seemed to be repeat visitors. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: rooms at the front of hotel are slightly more expensive but worth it.

just returned from another great weekend at The Patterdale, again it was perfect . Food again superb, staff great but I would also like to give a special mention to the team that keep the place clean and tidy they work really hard and the place is spotless a boutique hotel it is not but it is certainly 5* in cleanliness.

Room Tip: some prefer front rooms but to be honest for the price they are all good
