Reviewed 9 September 2007

We have just returned from a weekend stay at Westlakes. Although we tend to read reviews on TripAdvisor, rather than write, we thought that this time our stay more than merited some positive feedback.

To put the reivew into context, we paid £185 for two people for two nights, including breakfast and one nights dinner of 4 courses & wine. Their website shows deals currently available.

The hotel is well located, providing easy access to the many highlights of the Lake District. Personally for us, it provided an excellent base to be able to climb Scafell Pike, as Wasdale Head is only about 20 mins drive away.

The hotel is also impressive from the outside and includes a wonderful, well kept large garden. It's peaceful and secluded.

Our room was excellent. Spacious, light and recently redecorated to a high standard. The bathroom was also very good and included a roll top bath as well as a separate shower cubicle. The best point however, had to be the views of the western hills and mountains of the Lake District.

We had dinner at the hotel on our second night and this is also to be much recommended. This is good news, since there are very few other restaurants in Gosforth itself.

Finally, we'd like to thank the owners themselves for making us so welcome. Enthusiastic and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and this made our stay all the better.
