Fabulous, Amazing, Excellent just not enough words to describe our 4 days over Xmas. Room had amazing view, food was out of this world. Staff were so on the ball attended to every need checking all the time you had everything you wanted and were happy with food or coffee etc. This hotel has to be one of the very best for service, food and customer care. Thanks to everyone for all your hard work.

Room Tip: Give it a try you will be amazed

Three days full of Christmas Magic so lovely we've booked for next year xx

Arrived on Christmas eve had a Christmas meal in dining room complete with locals singing Christmas Carroll's. We retired to the Gazebo for mulled wine and marshmallows.

Christmas Day lunch was magical with guests entering into the spirit of things by firing screaming balloons within the restaurant.

Hotel Boxing Day walk up to the top what a hike but what a view complete with mulled wine mince pies and Christmas cheer.

The Boxing Day buffet what an amazing finale to our 3 day stay.

To say the hotel pushed the boat out was an understatement everything was polished to perfection so clean you could eat your dinner off the bathroom floor.

The staff were genuine and worked tirelessly throughout a credit to them.

We always love our stays at the hotel but this surpassed all previous visits.

The hotel is in a lovely location opposite Derwent water. The room was clean and well appointed. We came for a short Christmas getaway, and everything was wonderful - the food, attention to detail, and excellent staff. There was a large wedding on at the same time as well as a Christmas party evening, but the staff managed to make us feel special andnfrequently checked that everything was OK. breakfast was excellent. As previous reviews have mentioned, it is great to see a British hotel paying such attention to detail doing such a good job. Well done!

Room Tip: The first floor romms facing the lake have lovely views

We stayed for one night and booked the Tower Room which is right in the middle of the hotel at the highest level with great views of the lake but not located on the edge of the lake as we thought after seeing the photographs.
Room was good and bed very comfortable, access to the room is via a steep staircase, which took some careful negotiating when carrying our suitcase.
The hotel lounges are very comfortable with lots of comfy sofas and armchairs spread around.
We had a Christmas platter in the bar which we found disapointing, too much cheese and not enough cold meats.
There was a lot of staff around the bar, but you still have to go to bar to order and pay for your food which was a bit like Weatherspoons and didn't feel right considering the prices.
We ordered 2 glasses of wine which were filled to the brim which looked good value, but really should have been served in a larger glass.
We really enjoyed the evening meal which was excellent and the service equally as good. Breakfast again was first class.
We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly go there again.

Room Tip: Book a room on the front of the Hotel for great views of the lake

Hotel is clean, well appointed, very comfortable. Bed, blanket and bowls provided for pooch.

Staff are friendly, efficient, keen to please. Note the manager's response to posts here with his direct number attached.

restaurant dining is limited to the full table d'hote, which is very well prepared and presented but probably a little over the top for every night of a stay. An option to choose one or two courses would be good. Service, at a quiet time, was on the brisk side.

Breakfast is extensive and excellent, be on time or the staff will hurry you along with fast service.

Bar, waiting, room service VERY switched-on, a real treat.

We had a standard room and were surprised by size and quality. Rooms overlooking the south side have some background kitchen/extractor/machinery (?) noise through the night; reminiscent of a city hotel.

In the lakes we're more pub with rooms type folk. That said, the Lodore Falls WAS open when most elsewhere had closed for the season and given the location, facilities and quality it is value for money.

Would go again for a treat.

What a superb location!
Everything was just perfect! The staff, the food, the organisation were all second to none.
The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Lovely to see an English Hotel so well maintained and where staff, many from overseas, take a pride in their individual roles and in the overall success of the Hotel.
Well done Lodore! You worked so hard to ensure we enjoyed a weekend to remember.

Room Tip: The Lake view rooms ate obviously a bonus but all have a view of either the lake or the fells
