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.

Another excellent stay. Accommodation, wine and food all excellent. Very nice of Gary and Donna to accommodate our dietary requirements. Also a pleasure to tap Gary for his advice on wine and whisky - always appreciated! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Great stay we really enjoyed ourselves and the town centre is a stone throw away so it really is a great base for the lakes. Staff were really pleasant and are happy to give you recommendations for coffee and lunch spots about the town centre :)

This was our second stay. We also visited in July 2021, think Covid. 😕 Donna produces brilliant food and Gary is very knowledgeable on the wine. The evening meal with drinks and canapés before is a great end to the day. We walked out on several days and drove a short distance for some walks on the other days. And who doesn’t like seeing red squirrels whilst you eat breakfast. We will return.

From the moment you arrive at Hazel Bank you receive a warm welcome from Gary. It quickly becomes evident that the property is maintained throughout to a very high standard. The bedroom is very comfortable and well appointed whilst the bathroom is quite luxurious. Guests are invited to gather in the lounge for drinks and canapés at 7pm ahead of the evening meal. What a delight then awaits. Our two evenings saw fish and chateaubriand served as the main courses and both were outstanding. The flavours and tastes which emanated from each course during those two evenings were simply exquisite, and when enhanced by the attentive service, reflect enormous credit on everyone associated with Hazel Bank and we could not recommend it highly enough.

A splendid three day break at Hazel Bank. Every thing about the hotel is top notch. The welcome, the decor, the food and the service are all well considered and of the highest quality. I could go on and on about everything but will use one word instead - OUTSTANDING!

Excellent two-night stay in scenic Borrowdale. From the moment you hit the driveway through the beautiful grounds you get the feeling that all the details have been looked into and refined. This feeling is continued into the tastefully decorated and furnished property, through meeting the owners and the delightful staff (only “don’t tell them that as they will want a pay rise”). We particularly enjoyed meeting the other guests over pre- dinner canapés. The dinners were excellent, supported by a thoughtful and well-priced wine list. Loved watching the woodpeckers and red squirrel through the dining room window.

We stayed here for 4 nights in May and it was one of the most relaxing and beautiful holiday we have ever had. Gerry and Donna are very hospitable and gave us good tips for nice walks. We appreciated a lot that one can start some walks simply from the house without using the car. The location is quiet, the garden lovely, the personnel (two more girls in the restaurant) friendly and attentive. One of the highlights here is absolutely the 3-course dinner - delicious, high quality and creative. We didn't plan to but ended up eating here all evenings. Every meal was a true delight. We also enjoyed the casual chatting with the hosts (Gerry is a man with excellent humour), the personnels and other guests. The hotel is a hidden jewel in this less touristic and thus even more beautiful part of the lake district! We'll be back :).

The hotel is a wonderful experience , with a very good team. We appreciate the thought and care they all put into the business. We also enjoyed the company of our fellow guests. We hope to return one day. The local walks and general environment are quite endearing. There are beautiful birds, red squirrels and the odd sheep as outdoor visitors. The Cumbrian sense of humour and hospitality is also memorable.

This is one of our favourite hotels , we really look forward to staying here , and our latest visit was definitely one of our best stays . Thank you Gary and Donna for a fabulous weekend and especially for collecting David so late from Keswick after he watched the football. It was a particularly hot weekend and Donna told us of a great spot nearby for swimming in the river which we really enjoyed. There is a new member of staff in the kitchen that’s a fantastic addition to the team , his desserts are some of the best iv tasted . Gary’s knowledge of wines and choosing the right one for you is always much appreciated. We love dining here , a lovely atmosphere , great food and wines and I like that the clientele dress smartly. Breakfast is the best . Every time we’ve stayed we’ve always seen red squirrels during breakfast time . You don’t get any better than this hotel we look forward to the next time .

We’ve just stayed for four nights Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. This hotel is outstanding. Our room (Great Gable) was warm, smart, very comfortable and has amazing views across the valley. The food was of an extremely high standard , delicious of course but so much thought and effort had gone into each nights menu. Thank you to Donna who masterminds and creates this! Gary is a wonderful host, never too intrusive, but helpful and keeps an excellent choice of wines. We were able to do some lovely walks direct form the hotel. We very much intend to visit again.
