My husband and I are just back from a two night stay at the Glenridding Hotel, a treat from our children for our 38th wedding anniversary. We stayed at this beautiful hotel on our honeymoon all those years ago.
Our room was just perfect, so very clean, lots of space, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in and the view from our window of the fell and the lake was stunning.
Sadly, we were told that the restaurant wasn't open for dinner after the recent refurb and so we had our anniversary meal at the hotel next door, The Inn on the Lake.
Breakfast at the Glenridding was excellent, with a choice of juices, fruit, yoghurt etc as well as a varied cooked breakfast items.
The staff behind the bar, both in the sports bar and the residents lounge were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food in the sports bar was good, and the menu extensive. I can't recall her name, but the lady at reception and who also ran the residents bar on an evening was lovely, very happy and personable.
We will certainly stay here again. We love the village of Glenridding, very special memories for us, less
