Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We’ve just returned from a weekend at Embleton Spa. We stayed in Bassenthwaite which is a larger apartment and it was just brilliant! From the moment we arrived, the staff were friendly and really welcoming. The bar area is lovely…there’s a really nice, cosy atmosphere and they offer a really good selection of drinks. The apartment itself was just right…a balance of staying in a hotel but being able to relax back in the living room when we wanted to. The hotel is completely dog friendly with ample grounds around the hotel and some treats left in the apartment for them to enjoy. We had both breakfasts and evening meals which were absolutely delicious. You are asked to order your breakfast the night before so they can be prepared which was fine. The swimming pool was an added bonus for us as we came with our daughter…there is a timetable that specifies when it is open to hotel residents as it is used for swimming lessons etc between times. The views from the hotel are stunning and just up the road are Keswick and Cockermouth which were nice places to visit. We will definitely be returning! Thank you for a lovely weekend away.

Overall it was a reasonable hotel. The room was on the small side, only a double bed, the room wouldn't have been wide enough for anything else. Bathroom tiny, you had to open door, go in one side and then shut door to use sink. Fan in Bathroom rattled badly. Food was reasonable, although we had to wait over an hour one night, there were only 2 of us!. The speciality burger managed to be tasteless (despite the numerous toppings) and dense and it was served on a fridge cold bun which made it unpleasant to eat. The staff make this a 4* rather than 3* review as they were beyond helpful and always pleasant.

Came for 2 nights arrived to a warm welcome and a free upgrade to an apartment which was huge. This was nice and comfortable. The spa and pool are a little it dated and in need of some attention however we still used the pool and had a good half hour swim. The food in the restaurant was fabulous the service a little slow as it was valentines Nite but the staff were lovely and very chatty. Complimentary coffee and cakes every afternoon another little gem All in all we had a fab stay and would definitely stay again

The Hotel was spotless and staff were so lovely. Food was very tasty in the restaurant. Our apartment was great and the view was superb. Lovely and warm, quirky, comfortable. The staff were chatty to my children and accommodating with regards to our breakfast. Can’t fault anything and we even asked to see the other apartments to see which we’d prefer next time we come and they were equally as good, we’ll be back for certain. The best thing about this place was, being a big family, things can get expensive, but we had an all the benefits of a hotel, restaurant, room service ect but we also had a kitchen too cook and big living room to play family game and watch films at night. Thanks for a lovely experience it was defiantly worth travelling a bit further that we normally go on our last minute breaks.

We stayed here with our 2 dogs, the staff are extremely helpful especially Mags. Little welcome treats for the pooches in the room and complimentary coffee and cake on arrival is a great touch. It is a lovely little hotel, you can see they are updating it, although I don't think it should be labelled a "spa" hotel, the pool area looks like it's in need of a little tlc and the hot tub wasn't working properly. The food made up for that though, it was absolutely beautiful. 1 of the best meals I've had in a long time ! We got the steak le boeuf sharer and it had so much taste. The starter also was tasty. Service was slow on the evening but it didn't disappoint the stay.

I stayed with my two children for a night in January 2024. This is a beautiful hotel in a great location, close to keswick. Our family apartment was huge, immaculately clean and had a an outdoor roof terrace with beautiful views. There were lovely touches such as a christmas tree in the room. The owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful and we were looked after very well. It has a home from home vibe and the bar area with a log fire and views is lovely. The children loved the swimming pool and the prices in the bar were reasonable. We will definitely return, a really lovely place to stay.

Lovely location for a Christmas break. All the staff were lovely and very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble no matter what the request. The breakfast was amazing with the lemon curd/marmalade being home made and to die for. Christmas lunch was a lovely unhurried affair although there was far too much for food for just two of us. Our room (Thirlmere) was pleasant, although the sink in the en-suite was a bit too close to the toilet and the water took ages to run hot. Loved the shower gel and handwash. We thought it was a bit of a stretch to be marketed as a spa hotel given that access to the pool and steam room is limited as these facilities are open to external members/schools. The only real downside was the pool as it looked tired and in need of of tlc and given we were there at the weekend it would have been nice not to have had restricted access. It would have been useful to have been informed that the steam room was out of action as well as that was something we were really looking forward to using. All things considered we would go back.
