    Fabulous

    The location is exceptional, on the edge of Ullswater. Dinner was good but there was no possibility of having less than 5 courses,other than omitting them from a fixed price meal.

    Lack of a la carte alternative. Room was only kept at a reasonable temperaturebyleavingthewindow open all day. This when the outside temperature was about 7c and with all the radiators turned off.

    Very good

    A very pleasant environment to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary the rooms very lovely except the chairs were not very comfortable. Everything else was excellent. Sometimes a high quality look is at the expense of practical use and comfort.

    I always love going back to sharrow and the surrounding area have gone for 25yrs

    It is a very sad tired old lady could be brought back to a luxury hotel with the right backer but sadly will never be the same as when the two gays had it it was very special. Dig deep someone and restore this little piece of heaven. Vikki akrill

    The staff were fantastic and the food was amazing

    Whilst still lovely (we have stayed here before) the decor and furnishings were beginning to look a little shabby in places

    Charming small hotel - certainly lived up to my expectations. Relaxed atmosphere - front door open - extremely friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful room - apparently upgraded, so thank you. Utterly wonderful food. We loved staying with you.

    This is not a complaint - merely an observation which might be useful to you. Both my husband and I felt that the dinner portions were too large. I had quail breast to start with, and felt that it could have been just one quail breast and not two. On the menu it said 'quail breast / salad etc. With all the generous canapes to start with, and the extras that one is given throughout the dinner, by the time we both got to the main course (in my case filet), I was full! It goes against the grain to leave anything on my plate - particiularly such good food!!

    What did we like about the Sharrow Bay? Absolutely everything! We can honestly say this is one of the finest hotels we have stayed in (and we have travelled the world staying and eating in the finest hotels) The cuisine as we expected, was just superb, the level of service, (nothing was too much trouble for the guests) attention to detail, (manoevering the seating arrangements to ensure each guest had window seats and views) to the helpfullness, friendliness and utter professionalism of your staff. Certainly the service we received was absolutely and utterly, second to none We do hope that this beautiful hotel with its excellent and astounding staff will continue to be run in this manner for many years to come. Our sincere thanks to you all. Sue and Mike Grimsted.

    The hotel's location is stunning. Add to that an outstanding dinner with excellent wine and charming slightly faded interiors....a refreshing change from dull standard minimalist modernity.

    If you do one thing in your lifetime it should be book a night at SharrowBay. We certainly enjoyed our stay and only wish it could have been longer. we arrived early but were very warmly welcomed and told our room was ready and had been upgraded. The setting and views, especially from the picture window in the sitting room are breathtaking. The staff are excellent and very attentive. The restaurant is superb and the food lives up to its reputation. The 'puddings' are fantastic. We wish we could have stayed longer.

    The room (Garden cottage) was quaint, relaxing and beautifully located with views of Ullswater. The staff were very polite, attentive and professional. The food was stunning, we had a 7 course dinner (£75pp but £40pp if a resident), exceptional quality and presentation - a real treat. Highly recommend the hotel for gourmet Michelin* dining in a peaceful getaway from it all location.
