Great reception for our group of friends and all our dogs. Really helpful and friendly staff and the dog friendly rooms were of a really high standard. They have some really good two/ three day deals and we will certainly be going back later on this year.

Our group of 10 friends have been going in February for many years so I don't feel the need to write a review every year as it is always reliably great. Comfortable, caring, good food, excellent staff - everything you would want. But, this year an extra 'hug' for them and the whole region, having soldiered on after the horrendous...

I was one of a party of six walkers and dogs that have just returned from a two night stay. No large screen TV or usb sockets. But, more than compensated for by offering excellent hospitality, warm fires, good selection of beers and no-nonsense food. The rooms are very clean, warm, comfortable beds and a decent shower made for an...

Yet another fantastic stay at the Coledale Inn! We stayed in room 9 as it was the only large room available and once again everything was good. Comfortable bed, plenty of room for us and the dog, good food and a team of staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Well done Gary, Carol and...

As we have been here for many years I will only say that the staff, rooms, food, bar, location and satisfaction are still brilliant. It was another great winter break for eight friends in the lake district.

We as a family stayed at the Coledale whilst we waited for our rented cottage to come available and was so taken with their evening meals and breakfast we ate there again during the following week. Even though the surrounding area had been devastated by the floods we were met with a very warm and friendly welcome. The rooms were...

Lovely clean, warm well appointed rooms. Tastefully decorated with a good strong shower with plenty of hot water. Friendly welcoming staff. With good pub food in the evening and a choice of continental or full English breakfast. In easy reach of Keswick and with a beautiful view of the mountains. Would definitely return.

Just returned from a great break at this amazing country inn. Beautiful big bedroom which furnished beautifully. The place is so dog friendly.

Stayed recently on a Saturday whilst walking. A very cosy, welcoming and friendly hotel. The food and drink could not be faulted and the room was spot on and very comfortable. we will definitely be going back. If I could pick one small fault however it would be that dogs were allowed in one of the bars that was supposed...
