My wife and I stopped at the Beckside Bar after a seven mile walk round Ullswater for a drink and a snack. As I was driving I made do with a shandy though my wife assured me her Black Sheep ale was very good. We ordered a pizza -Cumbrian meat feast and very tasty too- and chips. The food was...

I would like to respond to your very vague and unjustified review.  Firstly,  you say you booked an early check in, you came to check in at 11.30am (when check out is 11am) demanding to check in, Insisting that you booked it through booking.com. booking.com is a third party booking site, they cannot and will not grant you an early...

My now husband booked the hotel for our Honeymoon back in January. Glenridding is a very special place to us so it was obvious to come back here for our Honeymoon. When we booked he explained why we were booking and asked to book the very best room he even described one from their website. We have stayed here several...

We'd booked several months ago in case we got invited to a wedding nearby (we did!!) and received an automatic reminder the day before our arrival, which was helpful and reassuring. Checkin was smooth and friendly, once we'd found the reception desk though the labyrinth. The room was quite small and basic so fine for one night. It overlooked the...

My colleague and I stayed here for an evening whilst on a business trip. The hotel has recently undergone extensive refurbishment and what a transformation. A very stylish and welcoming bar (the pizza was amazing) along with the 'Let it Brew' coffee shop, which served the most delicious sticky toffee pudding cake, all made for a quiet, relaxing and enjoyable...

We stayed here as a family of four for one night. It's a great location right near Ullswater. We found all the staff to be really helpful, flexible, good-humoured and friendly, and that made our short stay very pleasant. So - in the round, I would say we had a nice experience. On the down-side - we had room 41...

Recently stayed for two nights for a wedding. Really nice hotel with great, friendly staff. Big room with a great view of the fells and lake. Didn't try the pool but the 'Beckside' bar was small with nice atmosphere and great looking pizzas. We had dinner in the main restaurant on the Saturday. Nice staff and room - the food...

Dear english_audrey I have to say I'm so disappointed you have felt the need to write this review if you wanted to support us after the devastating time we have had with the flooding.
