Stayed Friday 21st till Sunday 23rd February. Again everything great . stayed in Room 3 .This room was way to hot so turned Radiator off. Charlie the bar man was in reception when we arrived and recognised us from previous visits. He was outstanding all weekend in making sure everyone had enough drink. Charlie was about when we left and said goodbye. I do love this Hotel ,its a bit quite sometimes but I can live with that. The only downside last weekend was the food . The main course on a Friday and especially Saturday night ( Ham ) I can get that anytime . No proper Meat ie Steak not even on a supplement. I think the hotel should lose the second course and make the main course better. it did spoil my dinners . We never got the coffee in Saturday night due to the waiter walking in the bar and then walked straight back out with it .
I cant wait till the conservatory is finished as I know where the coffee is is then .
overall Great stay please sort out Saturdays night dinner.
- 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
