I tend to head to the Lake District on a regular basis because of the brilliant walking and have always stayed in guest houses. The Patterdale Hotel seemed to be offering a good deal to stay monday to friday which included dinner as well as B and B. Having seen previous reviews I wasn't expecting too much in terms of the food. However, I can report that both myself and my wife chose a variety of starters, mains and desserts and all of these were either good or very good. My wife is a trained chef and very picky, but even she was impressed. All of the meat dishes I had were perfectly cooked and delicious. The staff are excellent and overall this was exceptional value. The hotel is excellent as a base for walkers as many classic walks start from Patterdale. While we were there a coach party of pensioners made the place feel a bit like an old folks home as they did tend to take over a bit and be a bit loud. There was one irritation and that was to do with our room. It was positioned at the back of the hotel just above where deliveries were made and often quite late, recycling of bottles etc. became a distraction. The other thing was the lack of consideration of other guests who were banging doors and the like well past 11.30pm. As such, even though we were tired after doing some long walks, neither of us slept well at all. I should add that we popped in for a drink last year and since then the decoration in public areas have been improved. One final thing...while the breakfast is good, avoid the porridge - totally tasteless.
