Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Very well managed hotel. Eaten here before but quality has improved. A much better spot than the majority of mediocre Lake District hotels who don't have to try. Clean rooms, great food and lovely staff.

Room Tip: Room 24 in separate building but spacious for family of 3, modern and clean.

We stayed for 2 nights in January with our 2 dogs and couldn't fault it at all. Our room was newly decorated and the furnishings were beautiful. We were in Room 1 which has its own ground floor entrance which was handy for the dogs. All the food was delicious and we'll have to return to finish the menu!

We are a family of 6 and we were staying at the Coledale as a final weekend before my son goes to Australia. I wanted everything to be right, but I needn't have worried as the Coledale was excellent.

Rooms
We had a double and two twin rooms. All spotlessly clean, with modern fixtures and fittings and a great power shower. Nothing more to add - very good.

Food
We opted to eat in the bar at a table which was easily reserved with the barman as we arrived, right in front of a roaring log fire. We all opted for starters which were hot, tasty and delicious. We over estimated the portions so although the mains were equally as great, we all could only finish 2/3rds of them and no room for desserts :-(
Breakfast was also great, with a good selection and well presented and cooked, but given we are not the outdoors type off out walking at the start of the day, the 8-9am serving time could have been a bit later for us.

Location
Not been to this part of the lakes before, but it was lovely and the Inn sits in a lovely spot overlooking various hills and near a small picturesque river and small waterfall. Lovely.

If you are looking for all these things, with friendly and helpful staff then you should stay at the Coledale. I would recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 4 and 20 are lovely big double rooms with nice views

My wife and I spent Xmas and new year in braithwaite in our touring caravan.
We had on a previous Xmas trip had Xmas dinner at a nearby pub who decided not to do Xmas dinner this year.
The coledale inn was the only place we could find to acomadate us on Xmas day.
If I said the Xmas day meal was fantastic and at a fantastic price it would be an understatement and five courses later I was left in no doubt what a gem of a find this place is.
The staff are very helpful and further more on returning several times throughout our holiday for food and drinks it was so welcoming to be able to take our springer spaniel into the bar and eat at the same time again unlike a nearby rival who kicks you out at meal time if you have a well behaved dog with you.
We will definitely be returning to a good value and welcoming establishment.
Well done the coledale

Just returned from 3 night stay in between Christmas & new year. We have been staying here with our dog now for about the last 10 years , and it is still as good as ever especially as now the rooms have been refurbished. They are much cosier and have a warmer feel to them, which makes your stay even better. The breakfast is hearty and certainly does you for the day. The bar food is good also, and there is always a friendly face behind the bar. Fab doggy friendly accommodation. Looking forward to our next stay at the Coledale.

We have just spent 5 nights here over Christmas with Bob, our border collie, and had a brilliant time. Friendly and helpful staff, great food, lovely room. We have already booked again for next year. One of the best places we have stayed with Bob, very accommodating
