I intended to stay 1 night to attend a wedding, but "Desmond" had other ideas, we finished up staying 3. The management and staff of the hotel were wonderful, nothing was too much bother. They accommodated villagers that had lost their homes as well as looking after the Police, Army and BT engineers that were looking after emergency telephone calls...

Can not rate this highly enough. My 86 yr old father and two others were there for my son's wedding when storm desmond hit. Although the village got cut off they got the chief bridesmaid out by rescue boat in time to do her duty elsewhere and they looked after my father and cousin until monday. They were epic.

This hotel and it's staff have donated a massive amount of their time, money and services to helping everyone they can affected by the Cumbrian floods. They have been trying their hardest, and succeeding, to provide a beacon of hope within Glenridding and the surrounding area and deserve the credit for it! Thank you

We booked two nights here as we had called earlier in the year and liked the look of the hotel. We were not disappointed! We chose a lake view room and that is precisely what we got, despite the rather inclement weather. The room was comfortable but with a standard rather than a queen size bed, although the view compensated...

Myself and my boyfriend went to the lakes to celebrate my birthday and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. The food was on the pricey side, but very tasty. My afternoon tea had too much creamy cakes in it though, so was a bit sickening, but the sandwiches! They were amazing! The bread was just so good! I also...

Lovely setting inside and out. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. We went for Sunday lunch which overall was delicious. Unfortunately I found a dead caterpillar in my salad, which in itself was quite funny and just one of those things. I was however a bit annoyed at how the situation was dealt with and just glossed over. I would have...

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
