My partner and self recently stayed at the Mortal Man in Troutbeck. We received a Voucher for a 2 Night stay as a present from the Christmas gone by. The hotel sits in a lovely remote village with surrounding views of the country side and fells with a sight also of Windermere in the distance. Our room (2) was very... More

Stayed for two nights and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Good wholesome food served by friendly staff. Retired to the bar after dinner to find a good selection of well kept ales and ciders and a roaring fire. Enjoyed the folk music on the first night provided by eight local musicians with a wide range of instruments and vocal styles. The... More

Great stay, staff could not be more helpful, first class food, some excellent ales and cider that has to be tasted. Evening entertainment is really good and you are drawn in. In all a great place to relax and close to many of the beauty spots.

The room we had overlooked the garden and beyond, and was nice and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. We had dinner on the two nights we stayed and it was good tasty pub food. In the bar there was an open mike evening, with a good mix of local folk singers. The next night there was a quiz, which... More

Timed the Ambleside to Troubeck walk to stop for lunch. It was a very leisurely lunch as service was very slow. It was far from busy so no excuse. Can't fault the sandwiches and chips though and it is in a beautiful location. The service was very pleasant but no apologies for the wait.

Every time we do the Ambleside to Troutbeck circular walk on our Lakes holiday, we stop off at The Mortal Man for lunch and a few drinks. On this occasion, I had the Falafel burger with sweet potato fries, my husband had the Club sandwich and our children had fish and chips from the children's menu. We all enjoyed our... More

The Troutbeck sits in one of the most beautiful spots in the UK, the eastern hills above Lake Windermere, and our southwest-facing room had a distant view of the lake. Just before dusk on a semi-clear evening that view is truly breathtaking and I was able to shoot some beautiful pictures from our window. The hotel has a long-term history... More

Visited last year and it was lovely: visited this year and what a disappointment. It was the music! Although there were just the four of us, in our 60s, the music was totally out of character for us and the pub as a whole, rap/pop and totally inappropriate. We asked for it to be turned down because it was loud... More

The views from this inn are nice. The rooms are quite posh. You are quite secluded as well, which is nice. You have some nice walks around. The breakfast is fairly good with continental selection and a choice of cooked breakfasts. The staff were nice enough, but one man seemed to be a bit edgy at times. Overall though, they... More

We're sure the garden is lovely and the history is enchanting, but everything else about this place is utterly awful. Bar service is negligent at best, we didn't get a full pint served all night. But worst of all was the food. It was like a journey back in time to the worst days of British cuisine. We arrived for... More
