The Borrowdale Hotel is a very friendly small hotel right in the heart of The North Lakes. It is not showy or posh but everything is so comfortable and well done. The food- if you like honest to goodness British cooking- is excellent!! There is a good choice and every night there is a different roast as well as fish ,casseroles, vegetarian etc etc. They are also very flexible in satisfying any special requests.
The hotel is very well situated for fell walking -both short or long , gentle or tough. It is also not too far from Keswick itself where there are many shops great for browsing.
I would say that this hotel caters for the slightly more mature guest who appreciates the better things in life. We have been lots of times and have every intention of being back.
If you like a gym spa or swimming pool you have the opportunity of using these facilities at The Lodore Falls (sister hotel walking distance along the road)- so the best of all worlds.
I can't finish this review without praising the staff enough- all very helpful and friendly.
