“Can't Fault”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

For the price we paid I wasnt expecting much.

Arrived late (later than planned after getting lost in the mountains) and we're welcomed by Geoff, the owner, who offered a much needed glass of wine and we were instantly made to feel totally at home.

Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable with good views. Breakfast was good, and dinner was really reasonably priced and delicious with plenty of choice.

Would deffinately recommend this hotel, just make sure you follow their directions on the website!!

Would return - great value for money.

From beginning to end we couldn't have asked for more from the owners. We arrived late after a long drive and they found food for us and when my partner and I arrived back shattered after having climbed skafell pike they kept the kitchen so we could freshen up and have dinner with them.


Go, relax and take in the beautiful views.

Such lovely people. A delayed arrival and late check-in but the owner waited up for us to arrive and made us both tea.
The room was light and spacious with excellent views. Staff were friendly in directing us to Scaffel Pike.
Thoroughly recommended and a place I'd stay again.

My partner and I spent the night there last week. We originally were just going to have dinner as we were thinking of having our wedding reception here. The room was beautifully decorated very stylish and well thought out. Geoff and Debbie who own the hotel are the perfect hosts and make you feel very welcome. The food was good and all in all a really relaxing night, we thourghly enjoyed it. We will be back next year for ourwedding reception.

We visited Westlakes Restaurant as a group of 15 during my Hen weekend in the lakes in May 2012. I can honestly say I've never had better service! They had set up the room just for us to accomodate such a big group, and the food was lovely. Once Debbie found out I was the Hen she made sure my glass was always topped up!! Such friendly and welcoming staff, by the time we left we all felt like we'd been visiting a family friend's house rather than a restaurant as Debbie gave everyone a hug as we left! Can't recommend this place enough. Well worth a visit!

Geoff and Debbie are the perfect hosts, have stayed in a few places in the area every easter and this was the best !! great price too at £120 for 2 nights will certainly be back.

Room Tip: All the rooms look lovely we had a peek into some of the others while cleaning going on, all had the...

From the moment you arrive, nothing is too much trouble. My colleagues and I were warmly welcomed, and the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Most importantly the beds are good too. I have a dodgey back, and nothing is worse than a saggy bed. Good breakfast and the restaurant has an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Back rooms are probably quieter, but the ones at the front are bigger!
