Once again Gary and Donna provided their usual warm welcome. A family group trip to scatter ashes of a relative was made much more bearable by the sensitive handling of the situation by the owners. The rooms with their beautifully refurbished bathrooms and comfortable beds were warm and welcoming, with sherry and chocolates along with tea and coffee making facilities,...

Everything about this hotel was impeccable. We have never experienced such wonderful hospitality before. The quality of the accommodation is outstanding. The food is superb, accompanied by an excellent wine list. Gary is a wonderful host, I can't imagine what else he could possibly do for his guests.

We booked Hazel Bank from their website and thought how nice the building and rooms looked. When we arrived there we stood with our backs to the hotel and were astounded by the views over the beautifully kept gardens across to the fells. Inside the hotel we met our hosts Gary and Donna, both local people, friendly and charming with...

We have been visiting the Hazel Bank for the last few years, since Gary and Donna took over and each visit sees additional enhancements that show the forward looking approach, without sacrificing the attributes and characteristics that make it such a wonderful getaway location. Gary continues to do the best front of house job I've come across in over 30...

The sun was out, the daffodils swaying in the gentle breeze and the handsome Hazel Bank House was standing proud looking out over the village of Rosthwaite in the delightful Borrowdale Valley and we knew that all was well in the (our) World! The great hospitality, that we are now well accustomed to, was brimming over from the beginning to...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Hazel Bank. Gary and Donna are most excellent hosts. Our room was extremely clean and very tastefully decorated with complementary sherry, chocolates and home made biscuits. Dinner was wonderful on both evenings and there was a good choice for breakfast each day. We have already booked a return visit -...
