Since changing hands last year, the place has undergone a complete facelift. Gone are the Beatrix Potter style ornaments and Laura Ashley decor. Replaced by fresh bright and clean lines. Painted wooden floors and neutral tones. Breakfast is superb and the addition of helping hands, living in, has made all the difference. It's still one of our favourite places to...

Heavenly. My mom and I stayed here after a long day of hiking Wainwright's Coast to Coast. We were met with a beautiful, luxurious room that the new owners had done such an elegant job renovating. The bathroom is super modern, amazing shower, and the beds were dreamy, with amazing mattresses, comforters, pillows, and towels (topped with a chocolate). We...

Good location, hospitable and helpful hosts. Newly renovated, bright and clean room. Fellside suite has good view of lake. Short walk to shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to the Lake District.

Reading the views prior to my booking I was a bit apprehensive about choosing this hotel, however I am really pleased I did as I could not fault the location, the room and the service. This hotel has had some bad reviews all under the previous ownership and the new people have obviously worked very hard to turn it around....

We booked the last of the rooms at Lakeview late, en route to Scotland. The price was reduced to £153 for the night, including breakfast. Paying this kind of money we had a level of expectation which unfortunately was not met on any level at all. 'Lakeview' should change its name to 'CarparkView' because that's all we got from our...
