The Scafell Hotel is perfectly situated in the Borrowdale valley. From outside it looks very traditional - much as it has looked for many years. The public rooms are very comfortable - with big squashy sofas and roaring fires in the bar and lounge areas. Around the back of the hotel is the welcoming Riverside Bar, with a good range of traditional ales and yet another log fire. Our bedroom was amazing. It was large and beautifully furnished - it even had a huge brass bed. The decor was a careful blend of old and modern and it all looked very clean and fresh. The bathroom was pretty stunning. Very modern with both bath and shower and all the toiletries you would expect. The food in the restaurant both in the evening and at breakfast was very good and the service attentive without being over the top.
All the staff were very welcoming. I would certainly return to this this hotel.
- 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
