Just returned from a 5 day break and had to write to say how pleased we were with the Patterdale.The food was as usual up to the high Choice Hotel standard, with every meal being thoroughly enjoyed, with plenty of choice. The staff from the moment we arrived to the time of leaving could not have been more pleasant and...

had the christmas break here. The room was clean as was the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good. The only criticism was the restaurant in that the staff were too quick to clear a table, wait until both diners have finished eating. crucially when a retired chef says a dish is not cooked properly...

Excellent service and food in the hotel and a very nice (dare we say mature singer :-) ) singer to entertain us on Saturday he had a very unusual selection of...

Spent two nights here in January in a Lakeland View room number 208 which was advertised as a superior room with views towards Ullswater. Room was a little cramped and tired looking although clean and tidy. Bathroom has a bath with over head shower, again a little tired looking. The food here is really very good and the staff very...

Just returned from a midweek break. In our mid fifties we were amongst the youngest there so if your looking for a lively place your looking at the wrong hotel. The room we had was a ok, clean and tidy, the only complaint was that the pillows were a tad hard. The staff are friendly, attentive, knowledgable, they are all...

Went with my boyfriend to the patterdale hotel this weekend and stayed for two nights. The room was basic but clean, the staff were very helpful and it was good value considering it was dinner bed and breakfast. It is worth noting that dinner is served between 6 and 8.30. On Friday I had a train straight after work from...

Our walking group have used a variety of venues for a January weekend walking break over recent years. Now that the majority are retired we decided to take advantage of the midweek rate at the Patterdale Hotel and we found this to be excellent value for money. The staff to guest ratio was fantastic for the time of year. All...

Been going here for 16 years. Staff always friendly. Superbly located for walking in the best part of the Lakes. Food is of good quality and the menu changes every day. Recently refurbished so all the rooms are in good condition.

A group of friends returned here for New Years celebrations, after a fantastic stay last year, and we were not disappointed. The management and staff could not have done more to make our New Year more special. This is a fantastic venue if you like to be in the Lake District but enjoy a party atmosphere. Every member of staff...
