I stayed at the hotel on a works function, which I organised personally with the hotel. From the start the staff were really helpful and the hotel provided a great base for our corporate event. The hotel decided to give us the Blue Room for our evening meal and breakfast as there were about 20 of us. This was a...

We stayed close to the Leeming House Hotel last weekend and with the Macdonald name thought this would be a good option for dinner. They offer a 3-course dinner, appetiser was a tiny slither of smoked salmon and the sorry remains of what was supposed to be frozen gin & tonic on top but without a spoon this was no...

Amazing hotel, such a great location right by the lake. Plenty of lovely walks and activities near by. The staff are impeccable, nothing is too much trouble for them, everyone is so welcoming and friendly. Food is exquisite, especially if you enjoy good seasonal produce

My second visit. Both times with dogs. Great room. Spacious with a door opening out onto beautiful grounds that lead right to the edge of Lake Ullswater. Good staff and good restaurant which is not expensive. Wonderful walks near by. Good value for money.

We have stayed here a few times. It is ideally situated, just a short drive off the mororway into beautiful scenery. It is first class.clean, friendly, efficient, excellent food served in a dining room which overlooks the beautiful lake and surrounding mountains. So peaceful and relaxing. We will return soon.

Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and had a lovely balcony (complete with table and chairs) that overlooked the stunning gardens and lake. The staff were most accommodating during our stay - nothing was too much trouble and the food was first class....

I attended a wedding at Leeming House a hotel last Friday. Stunning setting with views across Ullswater. Food, drinks and staff didn't disappoint. Many of my friends stayed at the venue and were very impressed with the standard of the rooms. Highly recommended!

Had a lovely stay, although sadly only there for one night. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds immaculate. The room was lovely and the bed was comfortable. We cannot fault any of the staff, from checking in to all the waiting staff at dinner. Everyone was very friendly and we were allowed a late checkout as we were doing...

This hotel is very reasonably priced, we opted for the dinner bed and breakfast tarriff which was very good value for money. The hotel is located on the water's edge and has some stunning views from the terrace. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, I cannot praise them enough. Somethings to be mindful of are that the rooms are...
