Best cozy place with warm welcome; we book the junior suite but given an extra room for my Son at no cost; willingly offered by the hotel staff even though a sofa bed was in the junior suite

Great spot to shamble on down to the ferry and cross to the bright lights of Bowness and fantastic public transport links via open-topped buses. Beats driving - you can drink as much as you want !!!

Breakfast was a wonderful experience with such varied and tasty choices. Although evening meals are not available the Sandwiches/Soups and wonderful Platters are available and well worth sampling.

Have stayed at West Vale several times since it first opened. We first thought it was very good value but more recently think the owners have got a little greedy! The food is undoubtedly good but not all home cooked as stated by the owners. The dessert was recognised by my husband as being one courtesy of Brake Brothers! Nevertheless... More

There is no doubting the quality of food at West Vale - I had venison which was tender and correctly cooked with flavourful accompanyments. However, we did wonder about the price, £36 a head for three courses excluding coffee is approaching London prices. We're not saying it wasn't good quality, but you have to remember that this is a guest... More
