We stayed, 2 adults , 2 boys 10 and 12, over New year with the staff at The Lodore Falls. Note I say "stayed with" not "at the hotel" because that is exactly what it felt like. This is not a large corporate hotel but a very informal, friendly place with a very happy, attentive family feel. However basic it is not. A true luxury hotel in every sense with fantastic food and helpful and competent staff. We stayed in the brandlehow suite and found it of a very high standard and comfort with stunning views. The whole package was not cheap but value for money as we and our children were looked after and entertained throughout our stay. If you measure value by how much one enjoyed a stay and achieved one's goal of being relaxed, rejuvenated and happy then I think we had a bit of a bargain. The hotel looked gorgeous and stereotypically Christmassy and the buffet was a masterpiece on New Years Day as were the incredible food sculptures. We've booked straight away again for this year and are looking for an excuse to visit before New Year if we can. I've read some of the negative reports and cannot believe some of them. It is true a bus runs occasionally past the hotel. How brilliant so that one can take it up and down borrowdale; that most beautiful of English valleys. The lake is a 2 minute walk away, the scenery unparalleled, the waterfall stunning, the river delightful, the flora and fauna beautiful, (red squirrels in the garden). Keswick is a ten minute drive or a 45 minute walk. Where else could one be better served in the world. Oh and for all those negative souls...the weather wasn't great but unlike some I will not lay that at the hotel's door and complain. Remember even the weather is beautiful just wear the right clothing. I Canot recommend The Lodore Falls team and experience highly enough.
