Lake District Holiday Reviews

Pleasure boat, Ullswater

By booking hotels in the Lake District you open up the opportunity to discover an area of outstanding beauty in the Lake District, home to inspirational countryside, breath-taking mountains, spectacular lakes, traditional market towns and numerous heritage sites.

The UK's largest national park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with stunning 350 fells and around 80 lakes to enjoy. You can enjoy a refreshing walk along the largest of them at Lake Windermere or climb England's highest mountain Skafell Pike. With all this fantastic outdoor space it can often be tempting to find a campsite. However, for those of us not brave enough to face the elements, there are plenty of top quality hotels in the Lake District.

For a lot of people the Lake District can seem like a pretty intimating place, especially if you do not have access to a larger vehicle. However, there are plenty of ways to get around. We have put together a guide of things to see, do and how to do them here in our Lake District Travel Guide. Why not take a look and let it help you plan your break.

Most, but not all, of our selection of Lake District hotels lie in the towns and villages in the national park. Why not visit one of the towns in the Lake District like Kendal, Keswick, Grasmere or travel a little further and visit the city of Carlisle, the largest in Cumbria. All of these locations offer superb hotels, shopping and restaurants but some of the best hotels and restaurants in the country reside in the Lake District countryside itself.

Here at SuperBreak, we offer a selection of hotels in the Lake District that should suit everyone! Whether you are looking for a base in the town to explore the area or you want a more secluded spot out in the countryside, we have something for you.Explore more UK weekend breaks.

Overnight Stop

Hotel room was not 3*, you could only just squeeze around bed, and the window was only a half window which opened onto roof of enclosed area giving no fresh air. Our trip out was very good. See More  Read more information Although the pool in the hotel was good (the water was cold), we had expected a better choice of meals for dinner.   Collapse  Hide

2 Days On The Lakes

Stay Date: 10/08/09, a customer who stayed at 3* Damson Dene Hotel & Leisure Club in Crosthwaite (Nr. Bowness) wrote this review.

Directions could have been better for distance and turnings to hotel. A very nice comfortable family hotel in it's own setting and gardens with freindly staff although for a 3 star service could be See More  Read more information a bit more polished in dinning room. Breakfast on first morning was awful but wonderful on second morning (2 chefs?). I would go back but think a bit pricey for quality of 3 star.

Damson dene experience

Stay Date: 15/04/14, a customer aged 25-44 who stayed at 3* Damson Dene Hotel & Leisure Club in Crosthwaite (Nr. Bowness) wrote this review.

We stayed at the Damson Dene so we had a base near to the South Lakes Zoo (which is excellent and well worth visiting). The hotel is in desperate need of paint and a deep clean. Our room was dirty See More  Read more information although the beds were comfy. The swimming pool was 'broken' but had been this way for weeks - the boiler has broken so the water was freezing cold. Breakfast was ok but the evening meals wereextortionate and of poor quality (take a trip to the Masons Arms down the road for more reasonable prices and far superior food).   Collapse  Hide

Extremely unhappy with the hotel. Very run down, no place to hang towels, damp above bed, door wouldn't lock correctly, cold breakfast plates, dirty shower room in leisure area - absolutely run See More  Read more information down! So unhappy with our short break - it was a nightmare! Just an awful experience glad we only booked for one night, We usually stay in the Salutation Ambleside but it was full so tried something newwith SuperBreak advertised as a 2 star with photos that clearly once there are very old!   Collapse  Hide
