Amazing hospitality
The best service from staff I have ever received in a hotel. Complimentary hot drinks and snacks upon arrival and free bar snacks in the afternoon.

Nice hotel, no nearby restaurants
Nice hotel, we had one of the executive rooms - so very nicely set out. One thing to consider is that the restaurant is the only place to eat locally unless you plan to drive / walk about 5 miles.

I hesitate to review this hotel as I'd like to keep it a secret. We both enjoyed everything about our stay there and hope to go back asap. I was taken ill and the management and staff couldn't have done more for us.

Peaceful, quiet, outstanding food!
Very peaceful hotel and location. Time has stood still in Borrowdale, a place to reflect and enjoy the stunning views. The food in the restaurant is outstanding, go for the dinner/bed/breakfast option, excellent value for money. Staff so welcoming and friendly, really made us feel at home. Some of the furnishings/decor are a little dated but everything is spotless and clean. Highly recommend for food alone.

Simply superb
Everything about this hotel is wonderful. Its position is gorgeous. Reception was warm and friendly, as were all the staff thereafter. Our room was extremely comfortable with a big balcony, beautiful view, and a roomy up-to-date bathroom. Lovely bar and sitting area, spacious dining room. Absolutely delicious food. And then, as a special bonus, red squirrels in the grounds, Simply couldn't ask for anything more! We can't wait to go back.

Great Hotel. Food to die for!!!!
Lovely stay, couldn’t fault the hotel. The staff are very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. The restaurant served amazing food, which was one of the reasons we wanted to try it out after a friend said good things about it. Can’t wait to stay there again!!!

Comfortable hotel in the middle of nature
Beautifully situated hotel, with excellent food and friendly staff. Nice spacious lounge to relax in before and after dinner. Their packed lunches are also recommended if you are going out for the day. Lady at reception can look a bit stern, but when she smiles her whole face lights up! The hotel also has a drying-room for your wet clothes. Real log fire in the lounge makes it very cosy and welcoming.

Lake District Retreat
The staff at this hotel were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were large by English/European standards, the views were beautiful, and the hotel was very quiet. We ate both breakfast and dinner at the hotel and both were fantastic. The dinner was delicious; however, the portions made a dinner in a French restaurant look like an all you can eat buffet. The dining room was also a tad quiet. The main road to the bridge is narrow and then a one lane road from the bridge to get to the hotel. Not uncommon in the countryside; however, these roads were narrower than what you will find around the Southern Lake District towns. Overall, it was a great hotel and a relaxing experience. We would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to others!
