Decent accommodation but over-priced

Overall the hotel was very good with the majority of the staff being very attentive and helpful.

The breakfast was excellent and the room was well appointed. It was let down by a couple of points though. The first was the welcome we received. The receptionist was on a personal phone call when we arrived which she continued for around 5 minutes whilst we stood waiting to be checked in - this gave a very poor first impression. The other was the price of the accommodation: significantly greater than other places in the area but not supported by any special attributes of the hotel.

A quiet room in a very comfortable country hotel with residents' bar, separate lounge and good restaurant.

I really enjoyed my weekend stay.

Nice hotel in beautiful location

We spent two nights at the hotel and had a great time, helped by the fantastic weather.

The room was comfortable, and the food and friendly service in the Riverside Bar were excellent. Only downside was the poor wifi in the hotel.

Excellent situation and attractive premises

We were taking part in a sponsored mountain climbing event and found the hotel very conveniently situated.

A very relaxed yet efficient atmosphere. We'd happily go again and will probably do so.

This is the second time we have stayed at Scafell and once again the accommodation, service and food has been excellent.

The room was first class with everything you need. The staff are a credit to the hotel, very friendly and welcoming and always had time to speak with you. Breakfast was exceptional and catered for all.

A great short stay

A lovely traditional hotel, in a quiet location (no mobile phone coverage!) with great views.

The breakfasts are very good with a choice of continental (fruit, cheese, cold meats) or a more traditional full English. There is a lounge for guests, which although we did not use it, would be ideal if you just want to sit and relax looking at the views of the fells. Within a couple of miles there are walks to suit the energetic or less energetic, or Keswick is only 20 minutes away if you want somewhere a bit busier.

Lovely hotel.

Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and rooms cosy and modern. After an extremely wet hike up Hellvellyn the staff take your wet boots and clothing and dry overnight ready for the morning.

A last minute visit.

A late trip to Lake District to meet up with friends walking Coast to coast.

Having just returned from a 4week tour of USA and Canada we found the quaint but very cramped. To get yo one side of the bed you had to side step round the desk. The double bed was small. We enjoyed the one night, the bar food was good and I believe the beer was tasty. Breakfast was 1 sausage, 1 rasher of bacon etc. the price we felt was expensive for what we got.
