Stayed here 2 yrs ago. The hotel still offers great service and a good quality, clean room. The restaurant is excellent with good food and service. The Maitre D' is very welcoming and friendly while being efficient and thorough. He's a good advert for the hotel and all of the staff were very welcoming. The breakfast choice is excellent :...

We stayed for 5 nights during our visit to the Lake District after Easter. The staff were very welcoming and looked after us extremely well. We were particularly impressed with the cuisine which was outstanding. Our son, who is dairy intolerant, was really well looked after and the chef went out of his way to make special dishes just for...

Had a great 3 night stay here in a signature family room. The staff (particularly at breakfast) were very friendly. The breakfast was a particular highlight - top quality with a massive choice. The rooms were clean and comfortable with some lovely little touches for our young children. We mentioned one of our child's nut allergy before staying and she...

I arrived at 9:30pm, having been on the road for 3 hours. Looking forward to a proper evening meal, I was told that the kitchen closed at 8:30pm. I could only order a cold sandwich and soup. For a hotel of this standard, situated just off the motorway, this is a really poor service that does not cater for their...

Stayed for 2 nights in a family room. Accommodation was spotless and included wonderful touches, from a plated cookie for the kids and high quality coffee for the parents. Facilities were excellent and the staff were exceptionally helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a gateway to the lakes.

Stayed for 1 night with my boyfriend for the first time, the outside is very misleading but as soon as we stepped in it felt really homely and welcoming. All the staff were very helpful and one particular waiter Oliver made our evening meal delightful. The spa treatments were really relaxing and I would definitely visit there again even just...

North Lakes is well situated for Ullswater lake. The room was well organised and apart from a dirty mark near the door, was well maintained. The kitchen was good except for our first night which was poor. I ordered ravioli which was undercooked and spoiled the evening. I had reviewed the hotel prior to booking and noticed that the lift...

Thanks for the review, and glad you enjoyed your stay overall. The Lift has been a top priority for us and at 30 years old, obtaining compatible parts has proven problematic. Thankfuly the engineers are on site as we speak, and all being well, we should be up and running again next week. Kind regards

Had a really nice stay here. A little alarmed by an Ed Sheeran tribute on the same night! But the bar and restaurant stayed quite relaxed and we couldn't hear much. The restaurant was busy but the food was served promptly and was very tasty. The cheese soufflé was amazing! The room was quite small but clean and had everything...
