My wife and I spent 6 nights at the Borrowdale, which included the Royal Photographic Society's Northern Region weekend, and in every respect our stay was just perfect.
A lovely old building with character, friendly helpful staff, a really comfortable bed (Room 29),
top-class food (good size portions,well-cooked and well-presented,and with no delays),lots of individual sitting areas,and a warming fire in the bar to accompany a pint of Something Borrowed Ale from the Brampton brewery (clever isn't it - Borrowed Ale).
Although we were on the second floor and there isn't a lift, the staff were more than willing to help with our luggage.Swimming pool and spa facilities are available free of charge at the nearby sister hotel, the Lodore Falls.
It's clearly a family-friendly and dog-friendly hotel and we were aware of perhaps 4 generations of the same family in residence at the time of our stay.It's the sort of place with a loyal clientele,who return on a regular basis.
There are little touches of quality everywhere,indicating that much thought has been given to ensuring guests' comfort and satisfaction.
We're already booked in for a return visit next year - it can't come soon enough !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled at the foot of Shepherd's Crag in the beautiful valley of Borrowdale, this completely refurbished 4 Star hotel has a totally unique atmosphere enveloping the visitors from the moment they arrive. Warm and welcoming fires in the Winter and cool drinks and Lakeland cream teas on the lawns in the Summer served with a smile. Built in 1866, the Borrowdale Hotel has an interesting history with the original 41 room bells, which, although no longer working, are still proudly displayed outside the reception area. The restaurant has been refurbished to a very high standard and is very elegant and comfortable. It also now boasts a superb walk-in wine cellar stocked with some very interesting bottles. During the day the lounge bar and conservatory are open for light lunches and afternoon teas and in the evening a splendid 5 course silver service dinner can be enjoyed in the restaurant with coffee and mints served in the lounges. The 40 cosy bedrooms have all been refurbished within the last 3 years all have TV, telephone and hospitality tray. There are also 2 extra large, easy-access rooms too. If you are arriving or leaving on a Sunday make sure not to miss the famous Sunday lunch - it is well worth trying, but remember to book your table well in advance, as it is particular popular with both locals and residents. For those looking for dog friendly hotels, all of our bedrooms are dog friendly and are available for well behaved dogs. Please contact reservations for information about our dog friendly accommodation. ... more less
