The Scafell Hotel is now probably my favourite hotel in the Lake District. As regular walkers it is brilliantly located in the stunning Borrowdale valley with great access to high or low level walks (if the weather is bad). You can walk straight from the hotel and get high on the fells if you wish or alternatively drive further a field.
We visited recently in October and sampled the menu from their new chef, which is absolutely superb. Interesting menu, beautifully presented and delicious. This will definitely become a foodie haunt for the future.
It’s great that they also have a regular pub bar with a roaring fire. We ate in one night. I had THE BEST fish and chips ever here.
My husband and I wanted a nice hotel in a beautiful location and this is exactly what we got. The staff are friendly and helpful and our room, the suite, is excellent. We had our meal with them for both evenings and couldn’t have asked for more. We are vegan and the chef went beyond expectations to accommodate us. We will definitely return.
Beautiful Hotel located in the Borrowdale Valley. Staff are always pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Food is unbelievably good and they gave us some extra courses to try. Being the Lakes, they are of course dog friendly and always make a fuss of our four legged companion who loved to lay by the open fire.
Fantastic stay in the week before Christmas – very friendly staff and superb food in the restaurant. Friendly staff and there is a really nice atmosphere around the place. Wonderful location in Borrowdale and dog friendly. Nice and quiet.
Based in the heart of borrowdale valley this us an ideal location to explore the many walks in this area. Dog friendly. Rooms are clean and tidy. Restaurant is nice and the river side bar has an open fire to warm you up after a days walking.
I cant praise the staff here enough absolutely brilliant. The owners should be very proud especially of their hotel manager. Food excellent area unbelievable. I would return in a flash. I had to rearrange my booking and it was no problem at all!! Get yourself to Scafell hotel ASAP.
We stayed two nights in this hotel using a Travelzoo voucher and were very impressed. Our room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom the same. We had dinner in the restaurant the first evening which was very good, my husband’s feather blade of beef especially so. A lovely walk the next morning recommended by the receptionist took us to the next village – Grange – where we enjoyed a welcome coffee. We ate in the Riverside Bar in the Hotel the second evening which was lovely – open fire and absolutely buzzing! Good food too. I think the nicest thing about the Scafell is the lovely staff who make you feel so much at home.
Spent 3 nights here last week. Food was amazing both in restaurant and pub. Room very clean and nicely decorated. Residents lounge very comfortable. Breakfast very good as well. Will definitely be going again.
Had 3 nights here with our dog, and it was most enjoyable. The food, both in the restaurant and the bar, was really lovely. The staff were friendly and caring, too. Our room in the annexe was perfect – looked fairly newly done and was nice and warm. The wet room was good, too. The location was scenic, down Borrowdale
We had a really lovely few days in this superb hotel, which is welcoming and exceptionally friendly. The service couldn’t be faulted and the food delicious, from the plentiful breakfast to amazing fine dining in the restaurant. We also ate in the bar, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our room was comfortable with a lovely view and the area is absolutely beautiful. We would certainly return in the future!
