Reviewed 16 February 2014

Rooms, modern and clean, amazing views. Service excellent and with a smile. Location , pooley bridge, Glenridding 10 mins away where there are pubs and great walks. Will definitely be back to this little gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in loadale, great view of the lake and mountains.

Where do I start, the view was ever changing and simply stunning from the rooms. This B &B delivers on everything, the room was immaculate and very comfortable. The bath room was spotless and stunning, loved the big walk in shower. Every thought has gone into the detail from chocolates on the bed, to a cafeteria for coffee and yummy biscuits, for that morning pick me up in bed. There was even a corkscrew!!! The breakfast was outstanding, locally sourced produce and home made bread( which was delicious!) and an extensive choice even for vegetarians. Our host was delightful and very helpful, we look forward to returning soon xx

Room Tip: Booked through booking.com don't make the same mistake I did, which was to search for a room for...

Stayed for one night on a business trip and I should say we couldn't have made a better choice.
The guest house is undergoing some improvements but don't let this put you off staying as you hardly notice them. Our room had been decorated to a very high standard and the bathroom was
stunning, as was the view over the lake. The hostess Julie was very accommodating as I required
breakfast 30 minutes earlier than they started serving, no problem was the reply to my request.
The breakfast was served promptly and was excellent, full English and not the slightest sign of any grease, I don't know how she did it. The bonus is, the next time I am in the area I don't have
to search for somewhere to stay, I'll just book the ULLSWATER VIEW, I can't go wrong.
Thanks for a great nights stay Julie.

Room Tip: Book it, you won't regret it.

3-night stay between Christmas and New Year 2013. Top class accommodation and first-class service! Warm and friendly welcome with a freshly-cooked breakfast of choice each morning. With views over the lake, you can't go wrong staying here.

We stayed at the Ullswater View Guest House for my husband's birthday and a little pre-Xmas get away. On the positive side the guest house was very clean and the breakfast was 5*. Not so positive, the bathroom needed updating. The towel rail was broke and the shower cubical had darkening on the grouting and seals. The hotel was very quiet and peaceful, great view over the Lake. Pooley Bridge (approx 3 miles away) has some great pubs with good grub - you just need to drive there or get a taxi.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Ullswater View. We are glad that you found the property to be very clean. Cleanliness is a basic requirement which we strive to maintain. We are also pleased that you agree with so many who stay, with breakfast scoring top marks. We apologise that the towel rail was broken, these accidents do occur from time to time, and once we are aware they are repaired as soon as is practical. Similarly we note your comment regarding the discolouration around the area of the shower seal.This has now been addressed, some jobs unfortunately have to wait until the end of the season, this being one of them. We do hope to see you again.

We only stayed one nights. Room was comfortable but bedding was dirty or stained. Nice wee view out of our window. Breakfast was ok and staff were friendly. There are plenty of places to eat within 5 to 10 min drive.

Thank you for taking the time to let us have your comments. We are pleased that you found the room comfortable, but most disturbed that you found the bedding to be “dirty or stained”. Firstly, can we assure you that when guests check in, ALL their bedding is freshly laundered. Like most hotel and guest house accommodation, we outsource our bedding laundry, but on its return we do inspect that laundry before re-using. From time to time our bedding does suffer discolouration, and we make a point of informing our launderers accordingly. If the discolouration cannot be cleaned, then we will dispense with it and replace with fresh bedding. Very occasionally some discoloured laundry may be returned, and it appears we may have missed this in your case. We do apologise for that, however we can assure you that our bedding is always professionally laundered and clean before use. I apologise and if you had mentioned it at the time we would have changed your sheet.

Excellent location, very clean. Room was lovely & bathroom very modern. Breakfast very tasty which persuaded us to ask for a packed lunch. Would definitely stay again. The owner was very welcoming & the hotel is a credit to her
