We had a wonderful stay. A lovely cosy hotel, with very good service and friendly staff. The location could hardly be bettered. Our room was small but had a lovely view, and the evening meals were perfect. A surprisingly good menu for a small hotel,...More

Lovely little hotel in a beautiful setting. Quiet and cosy with friendly staff. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening but the breakfasts were very tasty and plentiful. Some great walks on the doorstep with spectacular views and Ambleside is only a short...More

A repeat visit so was interested to see what the change of ownership might mean. On the plus side, the hotel remains full of character, comfortable, and service was friendly at all times. However, the evening meals do seem to have changed, and not in...More

I have visited this hotel with both my parents and my own children for several years for both accommodation and for non-guest dining. I returned for dinner with my father last night and had a most disappointing experience. The bar area was as cosy and...More

About
Description
A warm welcome awaits you at The Eltermere Inn. This low-key 12 bedroom hotel offers peace and tranquillity alongside an abundance of contemporary elegance. Many of our individually styled rooms have stunning views ...More over gardens, fells, lakes and Elterwater. We are located quietly on the edge of Elterwater village with uninterrupted views over the lake yet only 10 minutes from Ambleside’s shopping. Wrapped in beautiful gardens with views over Elterwater lake, we are perfectly placed for walking the Langdales' pikes and Loughrigg Fells or relaxing with afternoon tea, homemade cake and a good book. Dining with us is a joy either in the dining room overlooking the lake and gardens or by the fire in the cosy bar. Our food is smart but unfussy, and is contemporary cooking at its finest. Join us for lunch or dinner and enjoy an inspired menu using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. (non residents and well-behaved canines welcome) Less

Lots and lots of guided walks, easy and not so easy. We have done many and enjoyed the countryside around which is beautiful any time of the year. It sounds as if I am connected to tourism in this area but I am just a local... More
