I visited here with friends and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The real ale was also well kept and fresh. Unfortunately I ordered fish and chips and was very disappointed to be served a measly portion of not very fresh fish, a handful of chips and mushy peas straight out of a tin.

Popped in for lunch in the Walkers'Bar after an extremely wet and windy walk. We were dripping wet but received a friendly welcome. Nice selection of ales. Home made burger and chips was perfect. Next time we might base ourselves here for a few days - the walking is superb!

We stayed here on our Cumbria Way walk. The hotel is right on the route and in the heart of the beautiful Langdale valley.. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. Breakfast was a hearty feast which set us up for the day. We ate in the Walker's Bar and the food was just what was...

Stayed in the family room on top floor. Was a lovely room and fabulous views. Breakfast was very nice. The location of this hotel is great for walkers as it's on the doorstep of the langdale pikes. Luckily the weather was glorious for our 3 night stay. Ambleside is only a 10 minute drive from here and on a bus...

Turning up for a late meal at the hotel was a real winner! The bar staff made our evening with their wit and service. Food was excellent, though puddings could have been bigger. It was fresh food which I would return for again. Parking was excellent.
