Staff were very nice.
Hotel in lovely location, very quiet. If they want to keep the lake views will need to do some tree/shrub pruning, same view not like the photo. Room (205) was ok, but bathroom was tiny, dirty, mould, generally grubby, fittings poor, needed painting and a good scrub. If you wanted a warm shower it just trickled out. Breakfast was excellent. Had an older clientele it seemed. Bar prices a bit steep. Needs a pool. Some entertainment would be good, they have a huge bar/conservatory but don't make proper use of it, they could do so much more. Shame really, could be so nice if they just did some maintenance. Apart from grubby bathroom did enjoy it, but doubt we would go back.
Nice place for a getaway
Stayed for a short break, very convenient location (providing you're in a car) to base yourself for exploring the northern lakes.
Good value for money. One minor critisim was the soundproofing in the room wasn't great, but thankfully the neighbouring rooms did not have particularly noisy occupants.
The hotel is tired.
The bed is ok just but the bathroom Bradley needs updating. The shower was very poor and did not work very well. There was no thermostatic valve which I think may contravene health and safety. A child could have scolded themselves. The toilet seat was loose. There was no electrics fan/vent in the bathroom. Towel fittings were loose. The public areas need refurbishing and the occasional tables and lamps in the corridors serve no purpose and provide an obstruction.
Excellent Accommodation - but bring your own beer and sandwiches
An excellent, clean hotel in a marvellous situation with it's own grounds leading down to the lake.
Also, dog friendly. Many of the clientele were very elderly. However, the bar was side-lined we felt, the beer being awful and the area being a little impersonal and lacking in atmosphere and conviviality, partly due to the choice of using foreign staff. The food menu was extremely limited and we ate (and drank!) elsewhere. The room, however, was exceptional for the price.
very pleasant room -all staff very helpful and good food in the restaurant -even a chocolate egg on easter sunday.
The Derwentwater Hotel
Friendly helpful staff.
Room basic but clean and comfortable.
Comfortable and convenient location
Accomodation OK for price
Hotel is dated and definitely needs a refresh.
Our room had a big damp patch in the corner and the bathroom was less than desirable however it was OK for the price. We had a dog with us so could only eat in the bar but unfortunately the only vegetarian option on the bar menu was a cheese salad so we ended up eating in the pub in the village both nights ( which was lovely).
Recently visited, beautiful hotel, beautiful gardens and beautiful view.
