4 of us landed at the Inn on the lake for a 2 night winter break. We've been fans of the Lodore Falls ( the sister hotel ) for many years but thought we'd have a change. Superb lake view room, warm and cosy with all the amenities that you'd expect from a 4* hotel. Dinner in the main restaurant...

We visited the inn on the lake this week after having our house burgled and car stolen we had to change our stay to the night after which was no problem at all. The hotel staff were amazing they kindly upgraded our room when we arrived-on their own behalf. The room, the food, the staff...everything was just perfect! The location...

We decided to go for a short break immediately after the funeral of my father. We were given a nice room, but it later turned out that there was a foul smell in the room. Although we were offered a substitute room, we agreed to put up in our much better room in exchange for a one-off discount of £50....

Arrived late on Saturday night after a long journey to the lakes.

We had dinner in the Orangery and it really was a strange experience. Not quite Wood and Walters (despite the "two soups?" moment), more like an Alan Bennett setting. Unforgiving lighting, customers located in each corner of the room, and overkill Christmas decor for 4th November all contributed to a weird and cold atmosphere. The two soups on arrival tasted...

Dear 1southwold Your review is unkind and not really fair but to be honest there is humor in there which is quite funny as Im an avid fan of acorn antiques.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn on the Lake Hotel ia a 4 star hotel that enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Lake District in 15 acres of grounds with lawns sweeping to the shores of Lake Ullswater. The Inn on the Lake is only 12 miles from the M6 motorway and the drive is very dramatic with the road curving around the Lake and the backdrop scenery of the fells. There are 47 en-suite bedrooms, all thoughtfully designed with most rooms having breathtaking views, some looking towards the magnificent Helvellyn mountain range, while the majority look over the ever changing Ullswater. Each room is fully equipped with everything you come to expect in this quality 4 star hotel. For that special occasion upgrade to a superior room or one of the very popular, stunning four-poster bedrooms. From the moment you walk into reception you will find an interior that compliments this fabulous setting. This leads through to the popular Lounge Bar where a warm welcome awaits with large bay windows overlooking the well landscaped gardens, which lead to the hotels jetties on Ullswater. Enjoy a drink any time of the day, a light lunch or afternoon tea in the Lounge or on our Lakeside terrace. The award-winning 2 AA Rosette Lake View Restaurant provides something for all tastes, or for less formal dining The Ramblers Bar, situated within the hotel’s grounds, offers the option to enjoy a pint of real ale. The hotel also has its own outdoor activities including pitch & putt, croquet and children's outdoor play area. Gary and his team at The Inn on the Lake Hotel look forward to welcoming you soon. ... more   less
