Myself and my partner booked Rusland Pool last minute after planning a weekend away in the South Lakes. From the moment we arrived, every member of staff was friendly, welcoming and attentive. I want to point out the pictures on trip advisor don't do the rooms justice. The hotel was perfect for our plans, comfortable, spotless and great value for... More

Having been let down by another restaurant we were desperate to find somewhere to eat at 7pm on a Sunday evening. Although they closed the restaurant at 7pm and we arrived a few minutes after 7pm the staff were extremely pleasant and went out of their way to make sure we were served. The food was mediocre but we were... More

Play area for kids as you watch on with a nice pint. Staff very friendly and they can cope with any dietary requirements. They even have dairy free icecream which is a first for a pub. They always have two good ales on. Toys provided for kids if indoors. Nothing seems too much for staff, very welcoming

Hotel & surroundings also pretty good and no complaints there either. As clean as could be expected and well maintained Unfortunately the food... More

Our annual visit to the lakes always includes the Rusland pool. We left feeling somewhat deflated. After being ignored initially at the bar on arrival, we sat down, placed our order and subsequently waited 45 minutes for our food. An adjacent table arrived 10 minutes after us and received their meals before us. The scampi as usual was fantastic, but... More
