We all really enjoyed our stay. Staff were superb. Food was beautiful & the children enjoyed the swimming pool although I don't think some of the other swimmers enjoyed children interrupting their length swimming! The room was a little small and storage was not quite enough for a family of 4 but honestly, I loved this hotel & we are definitely going back.

From the moment we arrived until the time we left the staff gave 100% effort to making our stay as comfortable and friendly as possible. They were consummate professionals who gave excellent service without being obtrusive. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, with all the facilities we required.
The food was wonderful, well presented and cooked to perfection. The breakfast buffet was a good mix of healthy options as well as pastries and cereal.
The lounges were comfortable with welcoming open fires...
We first stayed here in 1989 and stayed numerous times in the 1990's, in 2001, 2002 and the last time in 2004. It had lost it's edge a little for us in the transition from a privately run and owned hotel to part of a chain (Von Essen). Recent developments, a new owner, and good reviews tempted us back and we were not disappointed! It isn't the same as in the days of Francis and Brian - it never could be - but it is still a unique experience. The position on Ullswater couldn't be better (I'd go for the views alone!), the staff were helpful and friendly, the food was exceptional without following fashion. Sharrow Bay always did things it's own way and that was what made it special. The décor and furnishings suit the house and location superbly and I'm pleased to see the Hotel still dares to be different in that respect. We won't leave it as long before our next visit. It is still Simply the Best!

Great accommodation! Comfy beds. Good size family room. Lovely food and very hospitable and helpful owner. She gave us advice on where to eat and provided a delicious home cooked breakfast in the morning. Would definitely come back!
We enjoyed our overnight stay in the cozy comfort of this family run pub which had lots of old world charm. Our hosts, John and Eileen, gave us a very warm welcome. We were provided with a delicious evening meal beside the open fireplace before heading off for a very good night's sleep.
