          Superb location at the head of Ullswater. Good food served in comfortable, quiet dining room. Friendly staff.

          Sound insulation between rooms not very good: neighbour's TV and snoring clearly audible.

        • Older travelers
          9.0

          We stayed there for Easter 2010 and enjoyed the experience. Excellent location, just by the Ullswater lake surrounded by walks. Dog friendly but charge £10 per dog. Car parking is small. Very good food in the restaurant and nice wine but costly, around £60 for dinner for 2 with wine. Friendly staff. Will come back again.

          Lovely relaxing break, friendly staff and very good food, great location.

          Having to wait quite a while for your food to arrive on an evening but it was very good when it came and staff apologised for this.

          Room overlooks my parked car & parking is free. Large bedroom. Hotel was quiet. No Roudy guests. Solid soundproof room. Nice restaurant ambience and fabulously lovely skilled young staff from eastern Europe

          Entrance accessability arrangements. Totally misfitting and 'cheap' bedroom and bathroom furniture, fittings and decoration. Worn-out bed. Kettle at ankle height! Totally overpriced.

          Lovely comfortable room with fantastic views. Staff friendly & attentive. Would recommend this hotel & return if opportunity presented itself

          Very beautiful place. Staffs was very nice.

          We went on the easter so the hotel was busy esspecially the pub and restaurent but it seemed like they were shot of staffs and also food was not enough to serve the customers. So we had to find another place to have dinner.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Location was very good for Lakes and walking.

          Room was small and bed not very comfortable. Breakfast disappointing as my wife found a piece of thread, onion skin and an eyelash in her breakfast

        • Family with children
          9.6

          I have been taking my family to Glenridding on special occasions for a number of years and it was so nice to spend a glorious Easter weekend there: relaxing; having wonderful meals; enjoying the village of Glenridding; local attractions; and for myself, a sensational walk on the fells above Ullswater. We could have had an enjoyable boat ride as well. Next time for sure.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          It was very quiet in the road at night and I slept well in an excelllent large comfortable bed. The (foreign) staff in the restaurant were delightful. The soap in the bathroom had a delightful fragrance. The breakfast was tasty and there was a good choice

          The TV was not working properly - I could not get the radio in the morning. The outside lower ground floor bar was a bit zoo like ...... but one must expect this in a "tourist" destination during a bank holiday. The meat served for dinner in the evening was a bit tough

          Very friendly staff at reception and in dining room also the pool.We are planning on coming again for short stay with daughter and her 2 children-meeting in Lakes, We Harrogate she Glasgow.Appropriate prices.All furnishings and decor in room and public rooms in very good condition.We were given a Lake facing room and would have been disappointed to face the road-thank you.Outside facilities were being cleaned for the season.No litter. Even the stream running past was immaculate.
