Score from 531 reviews Good
The rooms were cold, meal portions small, towell rail and toilet roll holder were hanging off the wall, there was mould in the shower and on the bathroom ceiling. Windows also had mould on them. Outside was tatty with litter blowing about.
Food was delicious, but very small portions
A bit dirty around the shower
It was relaxing and peaceful. A beautiful hotel. Planning to go again very soon! Thank you
All the staff there are kind and very friendly. The room is very clean and warm. Need to mention the breakfast served by the hotel is definitely the best breakfast I have ever eaten!
Good breakfast Lovely setting
Furnishings decor tired and dated scratched coffee tables in bar Noisy fan in bathroom Bathroom not cleaned well
Friendly and welcoming staff ..lovely hotel and excellent food
Staff at Sawrey House Hotel are friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. We've visited before and will visit again. Breakfasts are very good with lots of choice. The restaurant is worth booking. Overall :-)
Wifi in rooms is my only wish but to be honest doesn't matter too much as it's available in lounge and bar area
Great location, friendly staff, clean and tidy
The evening meal in the restaurant was minute portions, really poor value for money. Decor was tired.
The location.The rooms were clean and comfortable, the showers good. The chef's food was good,just difficult to be served with.
The welcome was non existent.The public areas tired and untidy.The chef and waiter were as helpful as possible, the "management team" were not.The hotel was virtually empty, but the bar and food service was appalling, slow, inefficient.A makeover required!
Spent 4 nights in the room with a stunning view of lake and farm for sheep. Very clean, bright, and comfortable room. It was absolutely wonderful time. The location is very good with fewer tourists, and breakfast and dinner are very tasty and posh. Hoping to come back again with my husband together. Thank you!
great location for walking, very friendly staff, lovely dining room with views out and excellent food
Stunning views, friendly staff
Bed fine, pillows hard.
The welcome was lovely Really reasonably priced Comfortable And the view at breakfast was stunning.
This elegant Victorian house has lots of original features, splendid views and highly agreeable food and wine in the a la carte restaurant. My good-sized double room overlooked the lake as does the morning room where breakfast is excellent - and when I set off at dawn one morning I was given a packed meal and a flask of tea. Best 'til last - lovely people! I would not hesitate to go back.
Not a dislike, but be sure to give the winding country roads up to Sawrey the respect they need and allow a few minutes extra.
Fantastic value for money Immaculately maintained rooms and grounds Very well prepared dinner and breakfast that took care not just of taste but also presentation Friendly and helpful staff
Nothing at all
As soon as we arrived we were greeted and informed that we had been upgraded from the small double room that we had booked. Our 'new' room was twice the size (both room & bed) and was lovely. Could not pick any fault with the room, hotel, breakfast or location. Great base for relaxing walks and a great local pub just up the road. Staff at the hotel were friendly and we had a really nice time (day & evening).
Warm welcome from manager Nick. Clearly meant for the hospitality industry, friendly and approachable throughout our stay. Requested two rooms close together, even though we booked last minute this was accommodated. Friendly relaxed atmosphere in the bar area. Pleasant rooms with good views. Nice view from breakfast dining area, which doubles as tea rooms during the day and was in demand. A nice short break.
Waitress at breakfast seemed to struggle with English, so when I asked for a slight variation it didn't work out very well. Personally I don't like cushions and throws on hotel beds. Makes me wonder if they're laundered between guests. Prefer just nice clean duvet cover.
Near Sawrey is a lovely quiet location, Hill Top is right next door. Our lake view room was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of hot water and a modern clean shower. The breakfasts and evening meals were delicious and the chef and team went the extra mile to accommodate my food allergy.
No negative comments.
Cosiness Location Breakfast
Dinner a bit expensive - but nice
The breakfast menu was fulfilling and had a good range, waitress was friendly and prompt to deliver our meals, no complaints with the meals for breakfast.
Upon check in we were asked if we wanted dinner in the restaurant located on the premises, we declined and was then asked if we wanted it for our second nights meal to which we also declined as we were going to explore what Sawrey had to offer in terms of pubs etc.. We found a great one up the road. Breakfast on our first morning we were again asked if we would be dining at the restaurant in the evening by the waitress serving us breakfast. Our room was off the main corridor to the kitchen, noises from the kitchen could be heard until 10:00pm and music from the breakfast hall could be heard early in the morning. Twice my partner and I touched the heated towel rail after exiting the shower, it is extremely hot so be careful.
I liked the hotel for the surroundings,the staff where helpful and friendly
the rooms need some insulation on the walls,I could here other people in there rooms above me and the room next to me I was kept awake with people talking,
The views, the peace and quiet. Exploring and walking in the area, sitting on the terrace watching the rabbits and just being somewhere very special for a few days.
The funny little chaise lounge, looked great, but I think I would prefer something more practical and more enjoyable to sit on.
Nice village with two pubs within a mile and Beatrix Potter associations. Very quiet with Esthwaite Water reasonably close.
