The Riverside is a comfortable friendly and relaxing hotel. Not so big which is why we like it so much. The view of the river from every room is a delight. It is also close to the shopping without the biz of the high street. Ducks and swans sailing past, lovely. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Sitting on the bar terrace over the river in the sunshine was just the best. At breakfast if you leave hungry it's your own fault. Service was quick for tea and toast everything else was buffet style. On this occasion we didnt use the gym or pool. The parking is right beside the hotel under cover which for us was a bonus as we were on a motorcycle. The hotel is so good we booked again for next year.
We visited the Punchbowl in May and stopped off on our journey up to the lakes. The pub is lovely, welcoming and homely. The meals were very good, in particular the cooked breakfasts were excellent. The rooms are lovely fitted with all modern amenities and nice finishing touches like a bar of Kendal mint cake, free bottles of water at your bedside and a cookie jar in your room filled with biscuits to eat with your cup of tea or coffee. In all an excellent place to stay and we will definitely be returning. I have no hesitation in recommending this place.
Excellent comfortable and clean room with brilliant full Engish breakfasts, Stuart the owner recommended the local Pub for evening meals and arranged a lovely table for us with the staff at the Strickland Arms who made us very welcome.
We would stay again next time we are in that part of the country.
Stayed overnight travelling home from the south of England. Had had a meal here several years ago and wanted to return.
Staff really friendly and efficient, food delicious and ales excellent.
Rooms very comfortable. Our room had a lovely view out over the river and hills.
Excellent accommodation for discerning walkers and cyclists and the inn is nicely situated just outside the busy National Park area so it doesn't get so busy with traffic etc., but is an excellent starting point for anywhere in the Lake District.
Hope to return again.
We stayed midweek - Monday night through to Friday morning. The staff were excellent - friendly and helpful and the food was first class, with sensible choices of wines with each course. The room was very comfortable and the wifi worked well throughout the hotel (no O2 signal though, so mobile phone calls were not possible, thankfully). The location is well placed for exploring the area - we shall definitely go back there when we are next in the Lake District.

Gilpin Lodge has got to be one of the best luxury Lake District hotels where every detail is important and awards flow …More
We stayed for three nights. High quality room standards - clean. The Inn is family run with friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent.
The pub food was so good we ate there for the three nights. Nice local ales too
