We stayed here for a couple of nights last week and once again was very satisfied with everything. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room spacious and very clean, the food to die for. It is a dog friendly hotel and our little dog was well catered for. Can't wait to visit again.

The only reason I could find to go back would be the splendid views, the food was ok but at £30 per head for sunday lunch I would like more than okay, the waiting staff were probably some of the most rude I have come across, very abrupt and stern and the welcome was rather frosty. I have certainly no...

We booked a table quite last minute and the hotel were incredibly accommodating in booking us in. We walked from Patterdale and decided we'd need a taxi to get back because it was...

The first 'freeze of the year' didn't at all detract from a warm welcome at the Inn on the Lake. This was our first stay at the hotel and we cannot fault the friendly staff and the overall standard of customer service. The hotel was superbly and tastefully decorated for the festive season; you sit around a fire with a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn on the Lake Hotel ia a 4 star hotel that enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Lake District in 15 acres of grounds with lawns sweeping to the shores of Lake Ullswater. The Inn on the Lake is only 12 miles from the M6 motorway and the drive is very dramatic with the road curving around the Lake and the backdrop scenery of the fells. There are 47 en-suite bedrooms, all thoughtfully designed with most rooms having breathtaking views, some looking towards the magnificent Helvellyn mountain range, while the majority look over the ever changing Ullswater. Each room is fully equipped with everything you come to expect in this quality 4 star hotel. For that special occasion upgrade to a superior room or one of the very popular, stunning four-poster bedrooms. From the moment you walk into reception you will find an interior that compliments this fabulous setting. This leads through to the popular Lounge Bar where a warm welcome awaits with large bay windows overlooking the well landscaped gardens, which lead to the hotels jetties on Ullswater. Enjoy a drink any time of the day, a light lunch or afternoon tea in the Lounge or on our Lakeside terrace. The award-winning 2 AA Rosette Lake View Restaurant provides something for all tastes, or for less formal dining The Ramblers Bar, situated within the hotel’s grounds, offers the option to enjoy a pint of real ale. The hotel also has its own outdoor activities including pitch & putt, croquet and children's outdoor play area. Gary and his team at The Inn on the Lake Hotel look forward to welcoming you soon. ... more   less
