Another Place, The Lake
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Watermillock
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Just had a three night stay here and it has to be one of the finest small country house hotels in UK.
The staff and service are above London standard in efficiency and attitude and go out of their way to assist.
I am not a lover of "Nouvelle cuisine" so the skill and craft of the chef was wasted on me, but aficionados loved it. They do, however, have a bar snack menu available daily.
The room was exquisite with views across Ullswater. It was more like a flat as we had a separate sitting room with TV and tea making facilities, and a bathroom big enough for a football match.
Bath robes and slippers all provided.
My only 'down side' being that dogs are allowed in the hotel - I do not like that, but is a personal matter.

The location is so beautiful, next to Ullswater with wonderful views of the lake and surrounding hills. You can either walk round the beautifully maintained gardens or sit on one of the chairs outside and watch the sailing. Sadly it rained whilst we were there(not unusual for the Lakes) but that didn't spoil our enjoyment. We had a delicious meal in the restaurant following by a lovely breakfast in the morning. We went for a short gastro break and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The views of the lake in the dining room are stunning. Enough superlatives, the staff were also lovely, very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Great walking location with a bit of luxury to come back too.

We stayed three nights last weekend, our Nephew had his wedding celebration on the Saturday, but we stayed Friday Saturday & Sunday.
The views of the lake and gardens are outstanding, in both rain and shine. The fine dining never disappointed but the Ace in the pack are the staff, unobtrusive, elegant and understated. I have stayed in far more expensive places, with ego's and star recommendations to match - they could all learn something from Rampsbeck.

Room Tip: Try Martindale or Ullswater

This is a wonderful place.
The hotel is beautifully decorated. The staff are friendly and seem happy in their work, this really adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
We stayed 2 nights to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and enjoyed excellent food. The dinner menu changed each night.
The setting by the Lake is stunning but the gardens are also very beautiful. The gardener must be congratulated. Not a weed to be seen!
The attention to detail was evident everywhere you looked around the hotel.

Cost, not the cheapest but it does represent excellent value for money because of the very high standards set in all areas. We are already thinking of another visit.
I think this is my new favourite hotel!

Room Tip: A Lake view.

Spent one night in this splendid hotel which was very traditional. The welcome was very warm and we were given a tour and brief history of the estate. We declined the Al a Carte dinner and had a very enjoyable bar meal that was well presented although a little top heavy on price.
Breakfast not a buffet but ordered at the table which proved a little slow. The room was well appointed but as a booking.com special we were allocated the smallest room but it was very comfortable and the bathroom was recently renovated and very nicely finished.
My only complaint which is a basic requirement in this day and age is INTERNET, it was non-existent anywhere in the Hotel. I complained and was told to sit in a specific chair in the lounge for the best reception!!!!!!! Even that failed. Sorry but no internet no return visit.

Room Tip: Wherever you can find internet!
