We had a delightful lunch on the lawns beside the flowing creek at this historic and very beautiful hotel. Drinks and food were ordered from the bar and delivered promptly by a personable waiter to our outside table. Our meals were tasty and enjoyable, but even if they weren't the scenery is so lovely we probably wouldn't have noticed.
The setting is unbeatable with fabulous views across the lake and the falls themselves are accessed by a pathway immediately behind the hotel.
If you are in the area this is the perfect spot for a dignified lunch.

What an absolute disappointment! I had been really looking forward to coming here! We walked about 6 miles to get here! Place was heaving! Wonderful looking place! In a wonderful part if the world! From the outset we were ambushed by wasps whilst sitting outside! We then went to sit inside and were ambushed by more wasps! We ordered food which when delivered was slapped (the only words to describe this) on our table! We were not asked if we would like any condiments! The chips were cold! And the rarebit we had ordered was pleasant enough but paltry! At £10 for glorified cheese in toast! One expected a little more than one circle if bread!!!!! My partner went to the bar and asked for the wine list and then attempted to order a bottle of wine! The waiter asked for her order and then proceeded to serve the next 2 customers!!!!!! When my partner asked for our wine - an Australian Chardonnay! The waiter offered a bottle of a French wine! He then stated he would bring it to our table, by this point our food was cold cold cold! The waiter then finally delivered our wine to our table in a more than sarcastic manner! All in all a very poor service! Despite the hotel being very busy! And clearly not enough staff to cope with demands! I would certainly not rush here in a hurry! A very over rated priced place for lunch! Better service in McDonald's and a 5th of the price! What a let down!

We stayed here for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a lake view room and the view was simply stunning! Check in was easy and the staff were very pleasant. We had dinner in the restaurant, the food and service were both superb. The reasons that I haven't given 5 stars are 1) at the end of the meal we were left with dirty plates for a good 10-15 minutes and we left the restaurant before they were cleared and 2) the rooms are looking a little tired, that said I would definitely recommend and won't hesitate to return should the opportunity arise.

The hotel is in a beautiful location on the shores of lake Derwentwater which can be viewed from the restaurant and the lounge/bar area. We had Pimms and strawberries on arrival which could be served outside. The staff were very helpful an the facilities were great. The highlight was the food in the retaurant for our evening meal, absolutely delicious and a great selection. The only down side was that the outdoor hot tub had to be reserved in advance and we weren't aware of this so we didn't get to use it.we would definitely go back as the walk to Cat bells was just directly opposite the hotel and the service was great.

After having afternoon tea here some years ago, we've always wanted to stay so our 44th wedding anniversary was the perfect reason. We were not disappointed. Our room was lovely, on a corner with views over the gardens and to the main car access at the front. The deal included Pimms and strawberries on arrival which was delicious, along with nuts and olives. The sun broke through on cue, so we enjoyed a walk up to the falls in the company of other guests. The meal was superb, beautifully presented and absolutely wonderful. A truly memorable way to celebrate our anniversary.

Room Tip: They're all superb.
