We were out walking far longer than expected (12 hours) and got back at 9:10 pm. We went to reception to ask if we could get some food as we had been out all day and were told the kitchen stopped serving at 9 pm. We were told if we could have anything, even some cereal or fruit and were told there's a chip shop in Keswick" (6.5 miles away and we didn't have a car). Thanks And stop burning the croissants every day
All the standard things you expect a hotel to do they did well.

We did not realise from the web site that there was a restaurant and stuck to our decision to eat at the pub. A good decision as the food was good and the restaurant very quiet. The lack of wifi in the room was surprising and we had to go to the lounge, which was ok as the hotel was quiet, not sure about the busy times, though.
The room although small was comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. The Riverside pub was warm and the staff very pleasant and service was good. The food was wholesome and well cooked.

The dinner was vastly over priced and very low on quantity. Service was poor, If I ask for a glass of wine then I expect it promptly, to have wait and then remind the waitress is just not good enough
Just the location

Bedroom above bar, thought it would go quiet at about 23.00 but on second night it sounded like things were being moved around until 02.00 in morning. No one to complain to until morning as reception was closed.
The Area. Comfortable public rooms.

good location and great breakfast

The Classic Double Room which was in the Annex was very comfortable but quite small. Challenging if you are travelling with a lot of luggage or large bags. The hotel is very pet friendly but our room carpet was thick with dog hairs. The staff responded well when we told them.
The location is amongst the best in the Lakes for beauty and walks. Really good food. Nice bar for aperitifs before dinner. Boot box and drying room facilities for wet walking gear. The pub next door is a great walkers bar with excellent beers and a good choice of food. The staff, with only one exception, were friendly and very helpful.

poor water pressure in the shower, maybe due to hotel location?

The entrance was on the side of the building. Would be nicer to have it at the front - although it looks like this is being planned as work was under-way.
The food and room were excellent quality and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Also walker friendly.

Our room was quite small. We pre ordered our packed lunch, which was fine but we didn't get a drink.
The Scaffel Hotel was one of the most expensive nights on our coast to Coast walk, however it was ideally located, with friendly staff and a lively Riverside Bar serving good pub food.

Everything was fine.Food was great and loads of atmosphere.We were doing the Coast to Coast walk and it was perfect accommodation for us.
