Certificate of Excellence
Westlakes Hotel is a beautiful late Georgian Country House set in three acres of tranquil mature gardens, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We have a choice of ten en-suite bedrooms and each room is individually designed to give a comfortable space to work or relax in, with complimentary wireless internet connection. You can be sure of the warmest welcome and friendly service from Geoff and Debra, and our experienced friendly staff. Our 28 cover restaurant is open Monday to Thursday and Saturday from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Please book to avoid disappointment. Special Offers available - please call or follow us on Facebook for more information. To the east is the spectacular scenery of the Lake District, while to the west , the Cumbrian coast offers long, uncrowded beaches. Indeed the area offers the best of both worlds; it is attractive but remains unknown by the majority of the Lake District tourists.

What a cracking little gem of a place. A last minute decision to look for somewhere to eat out. Debra was so welcoming and has just the best sense of humour, she looked after us very well. The young waitress was also extremely pleasant and efficient throughout. We enjoyed it

Picked by my wife on the basis of previous reviews and we have not been disappointed. The history is viable everywhere however this has been tastefully balanced with modern elements. A high standard of Finnish throughout this venue has the wow factor without being pretentious it

A beautiful old house that has been lovingly updated inside whilst retaining some the original features. We stayed in the King Room with Four Poster Bed for 2 nights Friday to Sunday. Our room was very large and clean, with luxurious touches here and there. It was lovely and

Thank you sjgee for your lovely review of your recent stay with us. We're delighted that you chose us and loved the hotel just as much as we do. Our restaurant is closed on Fridays and Sundays and it is unfortunate that you had plans for the Saturday and were unable to dine with us - maybe next time..? I hope you will get the chance to stay again, we look forward to welcoming you. Thanks again :)

Hi NickRayBe. The village is walkable of an evening, although it is quite dark. Just to let you know, we may not be open on New Years Eve. We usually close for Christmas and New Year, but we haven't fully decided yet. Let me know if you want any further information. Kind regards. Debra

Do you do wedding receptions?
Hi! Many thanks for your enquiry. Sorry but we no longer offer the facilities for a large wedding party. If your party was 30 guests or smaller, we could definitely offer reception facilities as we have a large conference room and a restaurant.

Hi David. Our four poster bed is a super king size bed and would be more than adequate for you at 6ft. The bottom of the bed is not encased as the mattress is a double thickness mattress so this would not be a problem for you. Regards Debra
