The Patterdale was a great hotel to stay with the family. We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff, the fabulous setting, the cleanliness of the rooms and last but by no means least the delicious and varied food. Staying during May half term we were wonderfully situated in the most picturesque part of the Lake District – with activities close by ranging from rowing/ kayaking and sailing on Lake Ullswater to fabulous rambles. Our children enjoyed the whole stay – their needs catered for beautifully.
The hotel has a lovely beer garden to the front, which was well used. The bar serves snacks throughout the day and evening, and the evening entertainment here was enjoyed by all the family. Every member of the team we came across appeared to be eager to help, and took exceptional care of our needs, even those who weren’t on duty.
The fabulous breakfasts were served by a competent team – the buffet being regularly topped up. The evening table d’hote menu, included in the cost of our stay, was wonderful, with a fantastic array of foods to suit all tastes, obviously cooked freshly in the kitchens for each service, the value for money for this 3 course meal was stunning. We didn't feel the need for such large portions (the second serving of potatoes on each plate could perhaps be queried with guests rather than being given them, as felt awful not completely clearing our plates). Service was swift with the Supervisor overseeing a well-oiled team.
Reception and the Hotel Manager were very competent and able to advise us on queries we needed assistance with.
The rooms were large, the décor fresh and well cleaned. We slept well. Our only suggestion would be the bath towels were slightly ‘small’ for our liking, however this was not a deal breaker.
We would warmly recommend this hotel as a fabulous destination in this fabulous part of the world… When can we visit again?
