Stayed here for a third time on 29th and 30th November. Stayed in the Grasmere room which is well appointed and disabled friendly. The bathroom has a bath and a walk in shower. Staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. Evening meals were excellent as were the breakfasts. Will be back soon I hope. The hotel is well situated ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside. B.T. Glasgow

This is a well run 3 star hotel in a beautiful part of The Lakes. You can park your car up and enjoy some great walks and pubs on the way.
The hotel ticks all the boxes for comfort and a relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in room 11 this time which was clean and large although dated in places. The bed was very comfortable, there was hot water whenever you and we had a good size bath.
The barman was excellent, the beers were very well kept. Good selection. The food is very good value for money, varied choice, proper vegetables and good selection of meat. Breakfast was a wholesome cooked breakfast with all the normal items. The staff were attentive, very cheerful and welcoming. The lounge is great for after meals, to have coffee on tap and mints! Internet access is good from the lounge.
We spend a lot of time in The Lakes and look for good value and a homely feel, Skelwith Bridge ticks all the boxes.

Back again, same old place, comfortable and retiring, no showboating here. Adequate, not roomy bedrooms, but still good showers and plenty of hot water for the walkers. But the kitchen, oh dear, unpredictable as ever, sometimes OK, but occasionally awful. Why can't someone control standards. Still good value in the "posey" Lakeland world of "Country House " hotels ,

This a lovely traditional hotel. It has a relaxing homely feel and is the ideal place to return to after a days walking in the Lakes. The rooms are spotless and the breakfasts are enough to last you all day!

We had read the previous reviews regarding this hotel and were a bit worried but needn't have been at all. I can see what people mean when they say places need updating but couldn't we say that about everywhere? Our arrival was handled in a friendly, helpful way and our room was delightful with a huge bed, lovely clean linens, fluffy towels and a good supply of toiletries and courtesy tray biscuits etc. Unlike the last place we stayed - which was more expensive and rated more highly by reviewers on this site - the tray was refreshed fully each day and more importantly the Skelwith Bridge was CLEAN.
The food was amazing with some unusual twists on classics - simply delicious. The home made ice cream tempted me to try it again the second night and I'm not really an ice cream fan!
The staff were a delightful mix of nationalities who all brought their own personalities to our stay making us feel welcome and valued.
Our dog was also made welcome and for our meals we were given a table in the snug which was set with the same linen and crockery as the main dining room so we felt valued even though we had the dog with us. The last 'dog friendly' place we stayed made us feel so uncomfortable that we will not return there but we will be back to the Skelwith Bridge ASAP.
