“Great hotel with great food and good accommodation”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Stayed 3 nights at this local hotel and found the room to be very comfortable; quiet, clean, everything worked and the staff were really friendly. Food is excellent, served well and the bar has a great range of cask beers. If I were to pick on anything which was not quite suited to me, it was the fact that breakfast wasn't available until 0800 - I was working on early starts and had to leave at 0700. The hotel was very helpful and offered a cool bag with my choice of juice / cereal in, however. All in all, I fully recommend this hotel.

We have just stayed at the hotel for 3 nights for my birthday! The bar area is nice and welcoming. The food and beer are excellent but the rooms are shabby with old carpets and decoration and our bed (and that of our friends in another room) was so uncomfortable. I would guess that the mattresses are cheap. The rooms are definitely overpriced and we will not be staying again!

Room Tip: There isn't one!

We have just been here for the weekend and have to say that the food, beers whisky and cider choice were second to none ,but , I have to say that the "Hotel" side needs a complete overhall .Room 6 should not be let out, its a real mess .As for the other rooms, we felt that for what they charge they were very overpriced ,which is a shame because we really enjoyed our stay but it could of been so much better .Don

Stopped here for lunch after a trip to Dalegarth on the train. Ordered food at the bar and was most disappointed at what could be best described as poor service by an elderly member of the bar staff. She seemed dissatisfied that we decided to eat outside and once we had paid dismissed is twice saying "You can go now" in quite a surly manner,

She could learn a lot from the young girl who brought us the food to our table. She was very friendly and full of smiles. The food (just sandwiches) was well presented and tasted lovely, although a touch on the expensive side.

What a great place to stay . You are greated by very welcoming staff who looked after us with a smile all weekend. The food was fantastic and the local beers enjoyable after a day walking. The bar and Restuarant have a nice choice of wines and if you like whiskey you are in heaven.
The only down side and the reason I did not give it a deserved 5 was the temperamental plumbing in our room . That said it did not take away from a very enjoyable weekend.
Recommend eating in the bar for a relaxing fun night and the Restuarant if you want it to feel a bit more special , either way you will eat well.

This is one of the best places we have stayed in for a long time.

We had a wonderful and friendly welcome and got lots of advice about local walks we could do. Every staff member we came into contact with was fantastic.

Our room was perfect, bright, warm, a good size, nicely decorated, spotlessly clean, flat screen TV if we wanted it, and a comfortable bed (which was firm but then I'd much rather a firm bed than one that was too soft). We had tea and coffee making facilities in our room with some biscuits. Shower was hot whenever we wanted one and we also had a bath to soak in after a long walk in the countryside - we were very sore the next day! We had a great view from our room overlooking the fields.

Breakfast was superb. There was a breakfast menu and the food was cooked fresh from the kitchen. There was also a selection of cereals, fruit salad, toast and a choice of fruit juice and jams. High quality ingredients too.

The bar downstairs was fantastic. We had a room just above the bar but sound proofing was amazing - we couldn't hear anything despite going to bed before the pub closed on both nights.

Locations is fantastic. Very picturesque and within walking distance of a other 3 nice pubs if you wanted to walk to them or fancies eating or drinking somewhere else for a bit.

We had dinner both nights and the food was superb definitely the best we had on our trip.

Pack lunches are available to buy if ordered the night before. We ordered a couple and were glad that we did the cake slices were especially good.

Would definitely recommend and am looking forward to going back!

We recently spent 4 nights at the Brook House Inn and can't imagine a better Inn in the heart of the West Lakes area to enjoy all the natural beauty, hearty, fresh food and wonderful ales of Cumbria. The owners and staff make you feel as if you are part of the family and will do everything possible to meet all of your needs. Rooms are simple, but have all you need plus stunning views of the fells. There is always a menu board with the freshest offerings from the chef and the mussels are to die for. And there are always 5 to 7 real Cumbrian Ales on tap,, plus a huge collections of whiskeys to satisfy the most demanding guest. All and all, a great place which we will definitely return to on our next trip.
