After having stayed at The Lodore Falls on the last 5 occasions for a short break and we fancied a change so opted for the sister hotel down the road The Borrowdale Hotel in the Borrowdale valley just outside of Keswick. We love The Lodore so were hoping that we wouldn't be disappointed by our decision to have a change and we were not. The location, staff, room, quality of food and service were excellent. Overall we had an wonderful stay. The Borrowdale has everything the Lodore has except for the health club (which you can use if you like) but on a quieter and smaller scale. This however gave us a much more personal service. As usual everything was perfect and the staff could not do enough and after every "thank you",the staff reply "it's a pleasure" and it really is. I hope that we don't offend the wonderful Lodore by saying that The Borrowdale is now my favourite?! We hope to return to The Borrowdale very soon.
- 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
