We were so impressed by Dale Head Hall. The owners were very nice welcoming people, the room was faultless and the view of the Lake from the room was of outstanding beauty. We would not hesitate to stay there again, hopefully, sooner rather than later.
Wonderful views from room
The peace and beauty of the whole place
Dale Head was a fantastic hotel with great facilities and an amazing view. The staff were really warm and helpful. Thank you!
Peace and quiet - off the beacon track
Room 3 very clean and comfortable. Quiet and tranquil place.Good breakfast.
The entrance and hallway was a bit run down and need refurbishment. The path to the lake was overgrown with tall grass.
The location was superb, food was out of this world and the accommodation was genuinely first class. Not cheap, but quality costs.
The only single fault I could mention was the midges on the lake shore, hardly a fault of the hotel.
Quiet tranquil location Food Hotel setting, view
The hotel was located in a wonderful location and represented the very best in terms of hotel accommodation. I have absolutely no detrimental comments to make at all. We spent a wonderful night in a superb location & will undoubtedly book again.
Fantastic property with stunning lake view, ideally situated.
Location was good (don't trust your GPS) Breakfast too, good and tasty, and freshly cooked. Staff were polite. Views from room 4 are impressive.
Room 8 was smelly, like puke. It seems something was wrong with the carpet, and it was a really bad experience to sleep in there. Management didn't provide with a real solution, as per the freshener (spry) wasn't enough. The shower in room 4 is old and not useful, and the water went in all directions but to your body. WIFI was failing, not a big deal for relaxing holidays, but everything together make of this hotel not price balanced.
Beautiful tranquil location which takes your breath away.Lack of mobile phone contact from 20yds up the entrance drive was a bonus. Standard Room 15 had an excellent view, was large and spacious with a comfortable bed. The breakfast room was bright and airy and the breakfast choice was very good and well prepared.The staff especially Phillip were helpful ,courteous and made us feel very welcome.
Leaving! ....A single nights stay was not enough
Loved the location, hosts and the breakfast.
No one's fault, but as we were the only guests, it lacked atmosphere. The bed was a bit too soft for my husband. It won't stop us coming back though.
This is a genuine olde-worlde charming property, but with all the mod-cons for a truly comfortable stay. Large grounds for a relaxing walk, with Lake Thirlmere below. Excellent breakfast cooked to order, with a view to the Lake from the window. Very helpful owner. Did not see the red squirrels this time, but we have seen them in this area in the past. Highly recommend.
Beautiful Location. Phillip terrific host - always on hand to help or make our stay very comfortable.
Well maybe the weather but nobody can do much about that!!!
Peace and quiet. Stunning views. Breakfast. Genial host.
The rooms and the breakfast.
Lack of meals in the evening and no bar.
Stopped for two nights to do some fell walking Amazing views and very peaceful. Only a short drive away from Keswick and Ambleside. Nice breakfast and staff were all friendly. Close to Hellvellyn
No evening meal available as the chef had toothache but pub down the road was fine with us. Also no mobile phone signal or wifi as advertised but landline phone in bedroom worked fine and was not expensive.
the hotel location, the friendliness of the owner the breakfast the bedroom the overall hotel
