Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a beautiful period building, cosy and elegant at the same time. Wonderful attentive but unobtrusive service. I have been here 3 times now and its my favorite place to relax and rejuvenate from a hectic life. The attention to detail is spot on, service, rooms, food are all excellent.I like to sit on one of the comfy sofas next to an open fire and while away the hours reading. I have also enjoyed the Spa and beauty treatments, so relaxing!

Visited for the first time. The situation of the hotel on the south east tip of Derwentwater, is stunning. The room was small but very well appointed. The staff were very attentive and the food, dinner and breakfast was very good. Would visit again.

Room Tip: A lakeside view is essential so check before booking.

My wife and I stayed here for nearly a week and were charmed by the place. Its location is spectacular and it would be hard to fault it in the slightest. food excellent, rooms excellent, but the lift was definitely 1920;s!

My Husband and I recently enjoyed a relaxing minimoon at the Lodore Falls Hotel. The hotel is literally situated on the Lake...beautiful view! The hotel itself is very lovely, we booked a 'secret escape' deal yet didn't get treated any differently. The food was excellent, lots of choice. We opted to take our own wine which they are happy for you to do, you just pay the corkage at £12.50 a bottle. (Their wines are about £25 plus) We took advantage of booking slots in the outside Jacuzzi with a glass of prosecco and had a swim in the outdoor pool. We also booked a massage - considering we went mid week they were pretty booked up, so I would suggest if you wanted any treatments in the Spa, to book in advance. The staff were so friendly, that nothing was too much trouble! We would really recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to relax, eat great food, go for lovely walks or chill in the pool. Fabulous time, thankyou!

Room Tip: ask for lake view.

This was or third visit here and we cannot fault it. A lovely relaxing place to come back to after a day walking. The rooms are small but well decorated and the communal area feels very cosy with the fires and comfy sofas.
Breakfast was always lovely and hearty setting you up for the day and the evening meals are simply delicious. Though I have to say I think a little over priced if you pay on the night but most occasions we have managed to get a deal with evening meal included.
We love this place so much we chose to go there for a few days after our recent wedding as a mini-moon and I'm sure we'll be back again!

Just spent 2 nights at this hotel, we had a lovely relaxing time. The views and the location are stunning, the grounds and gardens of the hotel are beautiful, there is even a waterfall at the back of the hotel ( a short walk and not visible from the hotel itself). The staff were without exception polite, friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. When we arrived we were given a complimentary Pimms and strawberries and cream ( part of our deal ) . We were in a standard room but it was a reasonable size, very nicely decorated with a comfy bed. There are lovely views from the restaurant and the bar, the evening meal menu was lovely and the food was really good and well presented. Service was excellent. Coffee and petit fours were complimentary and served in the bar. The breakfast menu was varied with a good range of choices and the cooked breakfast was just about the best I have ever had.
There is a reasonably sized indoor swimming pool and sauna and also an outdoor pool and a hot tub. You have to book a slot in the hot tub, but it means you have exclusive use of it for 20 minutes and the surroundings are beautiful. The Spa treatment room is very nice and I had a lovely relaxing treatment, but you need to book early and probably in advance of your arrival. I would highly recommend this hotel, it is one of the most relaxing breaks I have ever had. I classed this as very good value, but we were on a Secret Escapes deal.

Room Tip: The lake view rooms ( which I did not stay in ) will have the most stunning views.
