Its in the middle of nowhere, little or no phone reception, no TV in the room and wifi only in the bar....it was perfect for gettimg away from it all. We took the 2 night, half board option and had breakfast and evening...

The downside of this hotel is too some extent also it's attraction. Buttermere is a tiny village about 30 minutes from any town and to get here from any direction means going on roads with lots of one lane sections. This is a place I think ideal for serious hikers. Although many of our fellow guests were clearly enjoying the...

Just returned from a fabulous week spent in the Haystacks Apartment. The customer service was excellent - I must mention Attila who sorted the TV out for us. Looking forward to visiting you again later in the year. Well done !!!

These comfortable apartments are just next to the hotel's car park and have either 1 or 2 bedrooms. The kitchen/ dining/lounge areas are clean, modern and attractive. The view thru the floor to ceiling windows in my apartment (Crummock) was a delight plus the outside patio area. The bathroom has underfloor heating which is bliss after a long hike. Buttermere...

My husband and I had a four night break using the winter deal muddy/polished boots and had 2 nights DBB & 2 nights BB.

A very comfortable, friendly and relaxing hotel. Attractively furnished room. A very cosy residents' lounge....sort of "chintzy chic". The breakfasts were generally good, especially the Cumbrian breakfast, although the cooking of the eggs was somewhat variable.(hard yolks etc). We ate bar meals, which were generally good also. The great things about this hotel were NO television and NO phone signal....don't...

Check in not available 'til 15;00. not a problem. . . walked round Buttermere, beautiful but be prepared to get wet feet as you go through the" cave". Then sat outside and had a drink. We booked at very short notice and the hotel was full so we had the smallest room. However, it was well appointed and tastefully decorated....
