Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2012

We stayed for a long weekend after finding the hotel on a discount holiday site and we are very glad we did. The whole weekend from arrival to departure was superb - the staff, the room, lounge, hall, et al. A wonderfully friendly and welcoming establishment.

We got married at the Lodore Falls and can honestly say this is the perfect wedding venue especially in winter when the hotel is decorated for Christmas!

I stayed in the Borrowdale Suite on Thursday 15th November with my bridesmaid and then on Friday 16th November with my new husband.

The food at the hotel is absolutely delicious. For our wedding breakfast we had a Christmas Menu and the food, atmosphere, decorations and staff were amazing. Our guests were all absolutely blown away by the Lodore Falls and everyone had a fantastic day. The wedding co-ordinators are all wonderful and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

The Borrowdale Suite is fantastic but we also saw some of the other rooms that our guests stayed in and all of these were lovely rooms.

We could write such a long review about this hotel but all we really need to say is that it is perfect - whether it is for a romantic break or for a wedding or just for popping in for a cup of tea by the fires!

We are very pleased that we chose this hotel. Thank you to all the staff for making us and our guests feel so welcome and for giving us a day to remember forever!

Room Tip: For a luxury stay the Borrowdale Suite is absolutely fabulous - it has two bedrooms, a lounge, a bat...

We stayed here 19th and 20th November 2012. Hotel is old style but has lots of lovely character. we stayed in a Lake view room, not large but adequate. Staff excellent and very attentive. Smiles and always willing to help. Hotel expensive but we paid our bill happily knowing we had a great time. Evening meals were not very hot and when we had them sent back they came back with overcooked meat. Overall the only down side is the food for the price. would stay again but will be harder on Mike Ward the Chef if luke warm meals are served.

Room Tip: We had a quote from Secret Escapes but found it cheaper to book direct. Lake view room has great vi...

We stayed for just one night and this hotel which is not a cheap. Reception very indifferent, after arrival we went into the garden for tea and scones. The tea arrived and proceeded to get cold whilst some 10 minutes after the scones arrived and they were really not that good! The room was small but was ok and clean. The bed was a disaster, the matters was completely malformed and had a fair angled gradient up toward the center. Got an infestation of wasps in the early hours of the morning, since I could not sleep and ended up watching TV and the light must have attracted them in, I was forced to close the window. The next day I informed the receptionist, since he did not bother to enquire anything about our stay, about the issues and he had a dismissive attitude. He told me that they would have been told by other customers if the bed was so bad, my reply was that it is not a customer’s duty to tell you about things that have gone so drastically wrong with your service, it is your duty to check that you have supplied a service which is up to the standard of a so called high end hotel, especially when we are paying close to 130 pounds for the pleasure! I wrote to the hotel manager the following week and got no reply back. May be it was just our bad luck but the service and the whole experience was not remotely satisfactory whatsoever, so be advised! Would not use again.

This hotel is very well situated. It has been grand in the past but I was surprised that the bedrooms had not kept pace with upgrades to the public areas. For the Lake District it was very good but did not compare favorably with four star hotels in the city. I was disappointing with my evening meal but breakfast was excellent. In summary old world hotel that is not quite keeping up with modern times. We would stay again in the summer taking a lake view room and probably eating elsewhere in the evening.

Room Tip: 'Fell View' rooms seem to me to have a fairly limited view - close to trees so not a wide vi...
