We stayed at the Lodge in the Vale for two nights during the Easter period. The place looked good and was clean. If you want to go out and come back late evening, the reception is unmanned so you will have to let you in with your own room keys (yes they also open the main door). The food at...

Hello bbo, thank you for your review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the cleanliness and decor of our B&B during your Easter stay! Please note our reception is manned all day until 9:30pm, after that you have full access through the front door with your room key. We would absolutely love to hear your suggestions on how to improve...

This hotel is a gem. It's modern, clean, and conveniently located in the country yet close to Keswick. Our room had a lovely view of sheep grazing in the fields. While some people have commented somewhat negatively that this hotel does not serve a warm breakfast (which is true), we actually enjoyed their continental breakfast far more than the traditional...

Thank you for this lovely review! We're so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, thank you for your kind comments on our breakfast and facilities.

Stayed in the lodge for three days with a friend to explore the beautiful lake district. Our room was small, which is fine as that is what we ordered but bare in mind that by small they are smaller than most premier inn type rooms. Very clean room with free wifi and also a good selection of tv channels, you...

The lodge is a beautifully decorated, very clean base for walking in the lakes. The stunning location, near enough to Keswick and with easy access to main roads, was perfect for walking throughout the area. The rooms were warm, the showers nice and powerful and the continental breakfast was perfect. The local pub is a ten minute walk along a...

The Lodge in the Vale is a nice small hotel, very clean with comfy beds and very pleasant staff. I personally prefer a good old fashioned English breakfast but the continental breakfast is okay! The one thing this hotel is sadly lacking is a bar. You have to drive somewhere for an evening meal, but the road to the nearest...

Hello Kate, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us through a Groupon deal. I hope the lack of cooked breakfast wasn't a surprise, we are very clear in all our brochures/adverts that we provide continental breakfast only and similarly we don't advertise any restaurant facilities as we are...

Very clean & modern, friendly staff, outstanding scenery, can walk to the local pub for meals but take a torch. Great base for hill walking. Only downside is the continental breakfast which was ok, but again nothing cooked on offer.

Stayed at the Lodge with my 3 sons on a walking weekend. rooms were good and bathroom well serviced-lovely warm showers with constant hot water. THe continental breakfast was good ( but would have preferred a cooked breakfast!) and the staff were really friendly and helful. The downside was that the Drying Room advertised was just a cupboard with no...

Hello Kevin, Thank you for taking time to review our B&B. We're very happy to hear you enjoyed your break with us and found your rooms to be comfortable and clean. Our drying room gets very hot overnight which is why we advise our guests to leave their wet clothes/boots in there until the morning. Due to the fact that...

Stayed for three nights although expected to stay for four but the weather beat us I'm afraid. No reflection on The Lodge in The Vale which was very comfortable and clean. Friendly service and the breakfasts were a very good range of continental style offerings. We were well content and would certainly stay again when we are next in the...

We have just returned from a fabulous break. The room was tidy and clean and functional. The only problem with the skylight as the only window we could not see a lot. We were top floor which was nice and quiet. Breakfast better than we expected and perfect for our needs. Breakfast topped up regularly by happy staff. Plenty of...

I found the lodge very reasonable and set in a lovely area. Staff are friendly and welcoming and rooms are comfortable. Not far from local towns, no hot food available but there is a fantastic local pub within walking distance to get a tasty evening meal and you get 10% discount off food if you show your room key.
