Last holiday before Lockdown
First stay at Patterdale Hotel loved it from the first moment we stepped into the entrance after sanitising hands from dispenser. Receptionist team all very friendly, room with lake view and hills. Comfy bed, quiet room so slept well. Bathroom with lovely toiletries, towels could have been fluffier. As room not being serviced so 'our safe haven' we had plenty of toilet rolls and tea/coffee to cover our trip. Ate in bar one night and restaurant on last night. All staff very prompt to attend and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Holiday cut short by one day due to lockdown. Hotel laid on full Christmas Dinner complete with crackers, and individual presents from the resident Father Christmas - lovely!! Food was amazing and good portion sizes. Definitely be returning next year. Nice that they had bar and restaurant fully open with table service only but very prompt with orders. Hand sanitisers everywhere.

Great hotel for hikers
The views from the hotel room are amazing. It is located close to Ullswater lake and you can join many hiking routes straight from the hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is really good and portions are huge. My only (minor) complaints are that the mattress and pillows were a bit hard for my taste.

A great hotel to stay in to explore the Lakes! The staff were all lovely and very flexible given our slightly later than anticipated arrival time. Would highly recommend!
