This was my wife's first holiday in the Lake District so we wanted something special. We weren't disappointed. The house is beautiful, the location superb - between the mountains and the sea - and the owners are one of the warmest couples I have ever met. There is plenty of parking in the hotel grounds. The room was big and... More

Four of us have just had three nights dinner bed and breakfast here. Deborah and Geoff along with each and every member of staff are the most hospital and friendly team that you are likely to find, and they really aim to please their guests. It is like staying with good friends. The lovely building is spotlessly clean and well... More

I have stayed in this hotel for at least a couple of nights a week for the last 6 months. It is a really friendly place, lovely people, lovely food, in a beautiful part of the country. The rooms are spacious and well presented, parking is plentiful, and the local village of Gosforth is a typical picturesque lake district village

A very clean and comfortable hotel in the village of Gosforth. We chose this hotel as a base to walk in the Western Lakes. The hotel is very well run, the room was excellent and the staff were all excellent, both friendly and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed two nights recently at Westlakes. What a lovely and comfortable hotel this is. Just as fantastic was the restaurant, where we ate for our two nights. We even had a farewell pack given to us for our drive to York. Any couple would love to stay here for a few (or more) nights.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
