Positive Reviews

Superb location

If you want to stay in the heart of the Lake District, you could do far worse than choose this hotel There are stunning views from almost every room and the hotel is perfectly positioned for walkers If you prefer to take life at a slower pace, a trip on an Ullswater Steamer is a must.

Excellent hospitality

Guests reviews are exceptionally positive about the staff at the Best Western Glenridding It seems that every member of the team - from the front desk staff to housekeeping - is friendly and intent on offering a warm welcome to the area.

Impressive amenities

Although you’ll want to get out and about to explore, this hotel is wonderful to come back to The health suite facilities are ideal for relaxing after a busy day’s walking and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable.

Negative Reviews

Average food

Despite this hotel’s undeniable charms, a fair number of guests were rather disappointed by the food Breakfast is generally rated as just okay while some reviews indicated that the menu for evening meals was a little uninspiring It seems that there is room for improvement in this area.

Some rooms need updating

While most guests were happy with the standard of the bedrooms, some thought that space and comfort aside, they are in need of some renovations to bring them back up to an excellent standard A small number of guests also comment that the beds are uncomfortable.

A little overpriced for some

You won’t necessarily feel cheated by a stay here After all, guests love the location, hospitality and choice of amenities Comments about value for money do crop up fairly regularly though The main issue is that guests think the cost of breakfast should be absorbed into the not insignificant room rate.
