Dog friendly accommodation this summer by Dinah Hatch

"This four star country house hotel sits within three acres of grounds in the Borrowdale Valley, a spot described by famous fell walker Wainwright as “the loveliest square mile in Lakeland”, and offers miles of dog walking routes right from the hotel door. You will be allocated a ground floor bedroom with your dog, as these have direct access to the large gardens. In fact, there’s plenty of secure outside areas for dogs to roam around without a lead. Guestrooms have beautiful original features, postcard views from the windows and there’s an award –winning restaurant thrown in to boot. What’s not to love?"

We have walked past this hotel on several occasions and then decided to stay, we are so pleased we did. The hotel was great. The staff were quietly efficient, the room was spacious and comfortable with wonderful views. The evening meal was excellent and extremely well presented. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel for piece, tranquility and good food and all in a fantastic setting.

Review of Borrowdale Gates Hotel

Posted on by Hezekiah 3Customer stayed Apr 2017

We have been coming to The Borrowdale Gates Hotel since the last century and have seen it through four different owners. We like to visit at least once a year in the different seasons. The current owners have enlarged the hotel without losing any of its characters and have also added a number of ecological features. However, they have modernised without losing any of the charms and, importantly comfort, for which the hotel had always been known. The staff are welcoming and friendly (and efficient!). Breakfast is hearty and tasty and the evening dinner menu has ample choice of well-prepared and very tasty food. There are excellent views from the hotel in all directions. Rooms are of varying standard (you can specify what you require when you book) but all are comfortable and well appointed. It is the sort of place that you feel relaxed as soon as you enter and it is a pleasure to sit and drink the complimentary welcoming coffee whilst watching the wide variety of birds to be seen from the picture windows (siskins and yellowhammers being our favourites). The situation gives easy access ti a number of walks to suit all abilities and it is within easy reach of the lovely market town of Keswick. It is not cheap to stay here but it is value for money. We are already looking forward to our next visit.


Review of Borrowdale Gates Hotel

Posted on by Athena OCustomer stayed Feb 2017

I don't usually write two reviews for the same place, but this is such a super, comfortable hotel. The staff are so helpful, attentive, polite and well trained in their roles. The room we had was a superior one, it was very spacious, comfortable and had marvelous views. The food is excellent and breakfast is a real treat watching the birds eating theirs through the windows. I informed the chef before our visit that I was vegan, I do know how chefs feel about us. However, he created the most delicious and beautiful looking four-course meal especially for me, I was very impressed, as was my husband with his meal too. Excellent visit.

Review of Borrowdale Gates Hotel

Posted on by Ambleside ACustomer stayed Feb 2017

We were recommended to visit here via a local Lake District Facebook page, it was my mum's 70th and we were staying nearby. We booked her for Sunday dinner, and we arrived in good time so we were shown to the lovely bar area for a drink first whilst our table was prepared. When we went to our table the hotel had sprinkled some birthday confetti onto the table which was a lovely touch (although some of the confetti said 90 not 70!). It's £23.95 per person for a three course meal, half price for children. Between us we had tomato soup,ham hock terrine and seafood risotto as starters...they were all delicious. The Sunday dinners were utterly delicious, we asked for extra gravy which was no issue and the meats were tender. A big dish of vegetables came too with carrots,parsnips, mashed swede, red cabbage and broccoli. We all polished everything off! Then came the desserts with most of us having sticky toffee pudding (I have never had such delicious sticky toffee pudding, it was light and simply perfect), crumble with sorbet and a posh rice pudding - again clean plates all round. The children in our party were so happy as their portions were pretty much as big as our adult ones! The staff here are exceptional, very warm from start to finish...an extra special thanks to Chris who it turns out originates from near where we live! We all left feeling extremely satisfied both with the food, price and overall the service. For a special occasion this is a wonderful place to visit...the location is idyllic and you can see lots of birds on the feeders by the Windows whilst you take in the views. Thank you for making my mum's birthday that little bit extra special and memorable!

This hotel has a wonderful setting, peaceful and beautiful.
The staff are exceptional and seem to know many of the guests who are frequent returners. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated, as were all the public areas we used.
I particularly liked the local walks and trips on the lake, which you can access without needing to get back in your car, making this a very relaxing break destination.

Kenneth and I would like to thank all those at Borrowdale Gates Hotel , who made our recent stay there a wonderful experience. We all suffer times of stress both at work and home, and vacations, be they long or short, are the balm that keeps us going. The opportunity to be pampered and treated like “Royalty”. That said, I can honestly say, our recent stay at Borrowdale Gates Hotel has been one of the best, ever! The Wainwright Suite was lovely, with marvellous views of the valley and garden, well-appointed and super clean. Super wine/bar choice, at a reasonable cost (very important!) And the food…ahhhh… the food! May I kidnap the Chef?! There are not enough superlatives to describe the food your Chefs produce. A “thank you” does not seem adequate but, please extend our heartfelt thanks to all those involved in making our stay so memorable.

Review of Borrowdale Gates Hotel

Posted on by Maggie DCustomer stayed Oct 2014

I have yet to meet someone who is staying at the Borrowdale Gates for the first time. Most guests are on their return visit. The Borrowdale Gates is a bucket list destination with a reputation that has long been known amongst Lake District fans, for its spectacular location, sublime peace, and outstanding staff and owners, who genuinely look after their guests. With an enviable reputation for fine dining, gourmet appetites are pandered to by chef, Chris Standhaven, especially if they have been climbing some of the UK's most beautiful fells, right from the hotel's doorstep. When it comes to location, look no further than this favoured destination of Wordsworth, Wainwright, Turner, Southey and Prince Charles.
