Friendly efficient staff Interesting and tasteful surroundings Access to beautiful countryside and walking
Not much to dislike! Lack of private bathroom areas in the room may be an issue in the room we had.
Location was very picturesque. Nice bar area with real fire.
Not all rooms have good views not reflected in the price of rooms. Evening meal was expensive. Some of the staff had dead pan faces and made no effort to smile while serving us. No heat in bathroom so cold after a shower. Breakfast was nothing special no croissants only toast offered.
Staff were helpful, although very busy when we arrived. Room amazing views across the valley and spacious. Food good, although did not get food till after nine on both evenings.
We booked through booking.com. as it was advertised as 20% off, as it was a late deal. We thought we were paying £108 instead on £140 a night, however when we came to pay breakfast was then added on at £30, so the deal was a 1% saving of £2 based on the price. Initially booked B and B but then later print out sent with no food in small print.
Everything about the accommodation was fantastic. Probably will go again for a few days in the spring. It was so relaxing for both of us. An excellent starting point for lots of fell walking.
Our hosts Ruth & Mark The food was delicious Room was clean and comfortable Staff very helpful without being intrusive
Could not stay for a couple more evenings!
The rooms are of a high standard and the whole experience was very relaxing. Breakfast with such fine views was particularly civilised.
Great location in tranquil spot at the heart of the lakes. Great bar and dining area with log fire and real ale. Great food with interesting specials. Relaxing and run by friendly family.
Could do with a high chair, although babies are welcome
the location, the building was very nice, staff were friendly on arrival.
I thought the bedroom and bathroom for what was called a superior room was rather small.
The area and surroundings. The staff where polite & friendly Nice breakfast
The room Hen Crag, smelt very musty and damp my clothes even smelt of it when I left. The smallest en suite I have every had. Not impressed with wash basin in bedroom. Although this was a standard double the price was not cheap and I expected a lot better, I have paid less for rooms and had better. All in all verydisappointed
Perfect location for walking and sightseeing. Really great kitchen and menus Friendly staff Particularly liked the outdoor relaxation area. Quiet!!
Room was not a "view" room despite claim that all rooms had views. Otherwise and even so, no complaints or "negatives"
Beautiful location. Relaxing atmosphere. Tasteful interiors. Good food.
Small bedroom and very small bathroom.
Coffee & cake on arrival a nice touch. Rooms very clean & comfortable. Breakfast lovely.
Shower not much power. Evening bar meals though tasty were a little expensive.
The setting and Hotel are fabulous, the rooms are spacious and well decorated. the staff are very friendly and look after your every need. I cant fault the hotel.
Beautifully maintained and located small hotel, friendly and attentive staff, peaceful location with lovely views over gardens, trees and lake, excellent food, a good night's sleep
The food is top notch and it would be difficult to find a better location. The Georgian house retains all its charm. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Our room had no shower. Given that it was priced as a "Superior Plus" room, this was very disappointing.
Offered breakfast after finishing time. A real unusual bonus much appreciated.
Poor parking. No telephone in bedroom. Old beams my husband is tall and hit his head getting up inthe night. Rooms are difficult toget to for older folk
Pulling into the Eltermere Inn we were met with a wonderful view of gardens and surrounding scenery. We have been to many beautiful locations in the world and I would rate this as one of our top 5 experiences. The staff were lovely and the food and service were fantastic. We had a very relaxing time, just what we needed to recharge our batteries.
The quality of everything
No instructions for operating shower
Stunning location and beautiful building/rooms. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely.
Staff were very efficient and helpful but could have been a little more relaxed/friendly towards guests at times. Slightly noisy in our room until about 11.30pm as we were above the kitchen and bar but nothing excessive.
Room, location, bar atmosphere, good wine list
Limited bar menu Kids in the bar till late Rigid check out time - asked for 30 mins leeway after giving a decent tip but...no.
A lovely room and comfy bed. The bathroom was spacious with a powerful and roomy shower.
The comfort and service in a relaxing surroundings, near to the hills but without the crowds
We had not found it before.
If you love rural you will love this hotel with great walks on your doorstep you won't be using the car.Its very clean,sophisticated with light airy rooms.The staff are great and friendly and the food is fantastic though a bit pricey,you get what you pay and you won't be disappointed
Excellent food in the bar and excellent breakfast well presented and served. Fantastic location very close to some excellent hill walking.
We loved everything about the Eltermere - it was far enough from the tourists but near enough to be readily accessible by car or train. Beautiful setting with it's own lake, wonderful tiered garden and efficient and friendly staff. Fantastic food either in the bar (informal, big oak tables, candlelight, perfect for couples or groups of friends) or in the restaurant (more formal but still relaxed, great views, lots of space) & a lovely gin menu! Breakfast served up until 10am in the restaurant but thereafter still available in the bar for anyone who detests B&B early breakfast rules! There are plenty of walks starting from the hotel, from a few miles to all day, picnic lunches happily supplied on request.
We only stayed one night, it should have been more!
