Dear Fussyteam Thank you for your review. We are dog friendly and know how much people love their best friend, we use areas of the hotel that aren’t carpeted for our furry guests as we have had problems in the past with less considerate dog owners which has caused the hotel problems. I am somewhat surprised you say the Orangery...

If you are looking for a beautiful place for a wedding and reception with accommodation you can't got wrong here. Beautiful setting inside and out with a pub of your own for your reception. Food good, and right on the edge of Ulleswater. Not difficult find either.

The Inn on The Lake is quite frankly an enchanting venue. Booked a deal via Travelzoo to include one night stay, afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. I'd wanted a Lake View Room but as none were available on my preferred date of travel, I opted for the Fell View which was still lovely but probably not as lovely as the...

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
