Just back from a two night break at the Lodore Fall Hotel. Arrived in pouring rain but we received a warm welcome from all the staff. Saturday's weather was hot and sunny, it was like being in the Italian lakes! There is so much to do in the area from lakeside walks, kayaking, treatments in the spa, lounging by the outdoor and indoor pool, drinking prosecco in the hot tub to keep guests occupied all day. Dinner on both nights was really delicious and good value, include coffee and petit fours in the lounge. The restaurant manager and his staff were friendly and attentive and arranged for a window table for the saturday night. Duck was very good and all of our party commented on presentation of the food. Breakfasts are very good too, enjoyed smoked haddock and poached egg but there is a good selection to choose from, full english, kippers, plus cereals fruits, pastries, hams and cheeses etc. Evenings are fairly quiet as there are lots of couples and music could do with being livelier but we still had a laugh! Our room (125) was good and the bed was so comfortable, we had a deck attached which was lovely as we could sit out and enjoy the sun. Slight problem with squeaky floors in rooms above but not a big problem. Nice to see dogs are welcome too!
Hotel overall probably needs an update but it is still charming and very clean; the spa, outdoor grounds, comfort of rooms, friendliness of the staff and the beautiful location meant we had an excellent break and I would consider going back. Nearby Keswick is quaint and worth a visit.
