We found almost everything at the Skiddaw to be excellent - the room, the food and the attitude of the staff. The one "constructive criticism" relates to the service in the restaurant where, because we were in a coach part, we frequently suffered delay since the head waiter

My wife and I stopped at the skiddaw hotel for my 60th Birthday. The hotel was clean with modern rooms. The staff were pleasant and could not do enough. The food was good with a varied menu. Would definitely go back.

Booked hotel direct to get the best deal for a three night break. Booking Service was excellent and follow up. Arrived early , unfortunately a little confused about the parking so had to pay in the public car park as no space at the hotel. Ate a good lunch in the conservatory.

Could you let me know the phone number or email address as I should like to book direct
Hi coming to stay in march does the hotel have a car park plz
they have 4 parking spaces directly at the back of the hotel but you'll be very lucky to get one. You can park at the public car park also directly behind the hotel for £2 per night. You have to get a parking permit from the reception where you have to leave your credit card details in-case you run off with it !

"Pay little extra for front position. We overlooked back and bins!"
"Rooms at the back are quieter but all the rooms are lovely."
"Avoid Room 28 at all cost. Next to the noisiest oldest lift ever. Tiny room with a corridor of a bathroom."
"We had room 17, possibly above the kitchens, too hot and had the windows open in December to sleep comfortably."
"Try to secure room that is close to or near to the rear of hotel"
