Lovely hotel with views to die for. Perfect for exploring the Lake District, especially the wonderful Borrowdale. Hotel seems to cater well for everyone from the hardened fell walkers, families and the more sedate visitors. Close to Derwentwater, my favourite of the "lakes". We stayed in "Fairy Glen" - a huge, very pleasant room with double aspect windows looking out on to spectacular scenery. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the cooking was exemplary and the lounge and dining areas inviting. Service was a little rushed at times but never a real problem. Our stay was relaxing, peaceful and it was difficult to leave such a beautiful place,.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Borrowdale Gates Hotel is set amidst the breathtaking scenery of the Borrowdale Valley, the "loveliest square mile in Lakeland", according to Alfred Wainwright (MBE). Close to the shores of Derwent Water in two acres of woodland in Grange near Keswick, this is an ideal situation for walking, climbing, and touring the Lake District direct from the doorstep. There are many places of literary and historical interest within the local area. This beautiful family owned and run hotel has undergone a real transformation since 2008 with a full refurbishment completed in September 2012 to earn its current four star AA rating. With elegant contemporary rooms, a rosette award winning dining room, cosy bar and lounge, guests are assured of a warm welcome to enjoy stunning panoramic views during their stay. ... more less
