We recently returned to the Scafell for a short break, we knew we would be well looked after; but this time staff seemed to excel themselves. We were all in need of some pampering and we were cared for by everyone to an extremely high standard. This hotel is really friendly, yet retains its air of calm and professionalism- a true country house hotel that benefits from being privately owned. On arrival, we were offered a room with wet room facilities as I was recovering from knee surgery, our dog was pampered, as usual, even more so as she had recently lost her playmate, reception staff minded her at mealtimes and fed her tit-bits- Doggy Heaven!
We were made to feel so welcome, our room was clean, and warm- sadly this August central heating was sometimes required- but the heating was on when needed. All meals were brilliant, any special requests were accommodated and the service was both efficient and entertaining- thank you Laura! We could not have asked for a better holiday - even the sun shone some days! Looking forward to returning- yet again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Scafell Hotel is a wonderful Country House Hotel located in the very heart of Borrowdale, considered by many as England's finest valley, surrounded by mighty fells, tranquil meadows and crystal clear waters. A paradise for the walker and a perfect centre from which to visit other parts of the Lake District. The Hotel is situated almost at the foot of Great Gable and the Scafell Massif, and is regarded one of the Lake District's renowned headquarters for climbers and hill walkers. Keen anglers will appreciate the Scafell Hotel, as there is excellent fly fishing on the River Derwent and in Derwentwater. Those who are content with gentle rambling or just lazing on restful lawns fringed by trees amidst imposing scenery will be equally happy staying here. Our rooms were fully refurbished during 2010, in a Warm and Rich Country House style with a 'Contemporary Twist' perfect for setting the scene for a peaceful and relaxing break in the beautiful Borrowdale Valley. The Restaurant, Lounges and Bar have been tastefully decorated and furnished to retain that all important Country House warmth, allowing for complete relaxation after a great days walking on the Fells, and maybe even a little 'nap' by the fire after a delicious five course Dinner. Under the constant direction of owner's Miles Jessop MBE (Chairman) and Andrew Nelson (Managing Director) the Management and Team of Scafell Hotel offer truly warm and friendly service. Individual and Independent Country House Hotel for the last 44 years. ... more less
