Little gem
Fantastic dining - both the food and the service/welcome were superb. Room a little on the "cosy" side and bed a little firm for our liking but we will certainly be making a return visit. Great restaurant and lovely location on the edge of the village and lakeshore.

We really enjoyed our overnight at 1863. It was a horrendous night outside but so welcoming & cosy inside. Our room was spotlessly clean and newly redecorated. Extremely comfortable. We had a drink from the bar sitting by the fire, before a most delicious dinner. Our meals were beautifully presented and served - all of the ingredients explained. Portions looked small but we had more than enough to eat, each mouthful more tasty than the last. We were so comfortable and having a great chat that we probably outstayed our welcome, but Mark and his staff were so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely make this our destination to stay when travelling in this part of the world.

Great little boutique hotel in a great location
This is a great little boutique hotel in a wonderful location by Ullswater. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful,nothing was too much trouble. Converted a couple of years ago from a B&B, the owners have tried very hard to inject personality and flair into the place. Our room was the smallest they had, it was the only one free when we booked, and was a bit snug but very comfortable. The bathroom was equally compact and only had a shower, but it was adequate for our one night stay. The restaurant is nicely laid out and the menu was an interesting collection of modern dishes. Portions are small, but well presented. I must admit to being disappointed with the dessert, which was a chocolate delice,not to my taste, but the others sounded good. The cooked breakfast was excellent, I had the Cumberland breakfast, with black pudding, baby mushrooms, bacon, egg a hash brown and the thinnest Cumberland sausages I have ever seen! All good quality ingredients. Parking is very limited, but I understand that they have access to an overflow area nearby. Not sure where and as we arrived late, didn't ask and managed to fins a spot in a public car parking area very close by. Be ware, the public car park across the road only allows 2 hours parking between 9am and 5pm. We spoke to the owners the next morning and were shown around the hotel. They are very proud of it and with good cause. A great find and would stay again.

Very good 8.0
Great place to stay, room was excellent, location is perfect for exploring the area around Ullswater. Food at the restaurant was great and the breakfast was delicious, but if you’re an early riser or leaving early, it is not possible to get breakfast before 8:30am or even a cup of coffee. Our only complaint is they should be able to offer something other than instant coffee in the rooms!
