From the moment we arrived until the time we left the staff gave 100% effort to making our stay as comfortable and friendly as possible. They were consummate professionals who gave excellent service without being obtrusive. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, with all the facilities we required.
The food was wonderful, well presented and cooked to perfection. The breakfast buffet was a good mix of healthy options as well as pastries and cereal.
The lounges were comfortable with welcoming open fires...
We first stayed here in 1989 and stayed numerous times in the 1990's, in 2001, 2002 and the last time in 2004. It had lost it's edge a little for us in the transition from a privately run and owned hotel to part of a chain (Von Essen). Recent developments, a new owner, and good reviews tempted us back and we were not disappointed! It isn't the same as in the days of Francis and Brian - it never could be - but it is still a unique experience. The position on Ullswater couldn't be better (I'd go for the views alone!), the staff were helpful and friendly, the food was exceptional without following fashion. Sharrow Bay always did things it's own way and that was what made it special. The décor and furnishings suit the house and location superbly and I'm pleased to see the Hotel still dares to be different in that respect. We won't leave it as long before our next visit. It is still Simply the Best!

It has extensive facilities, a good WiFi connection. A good size swimming pool, (no time to use) with a first class restaurant serving a good chose of styles on 'hot plates' including an extensive Breakfast selection. A late serving Coffe Shop which is useful if your arrive back late, a safe 10 minute walk to Patterdale Chuch for your Saturday Night musical interests. During the warm weather our Top bedroom was very hot during the night with no breeze to cool it down, the following morning I found 'Fans' were available!!. We enjoyed the lake side views, mountains and the lake steamer passing by, just a short distance down the road from the hotel, I noticed 'Electric car charging spaces' at the jetty. We had to park with approval by the staff in the disabled parking space at the Glenridding Hotel as all other spaces in the (3?) parking areas were full.
