    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.

    Scenery

    Room had poor lighting, only one radiator worked so was very cold and drafty. No kettle but was given one. We did not think the room was good value for money, we got the room at half price of £120 and we still did not think it was value for money .have stayed in nicer rooms for less money. The breakfast was excellant as was the setting in the dinning room over looking the bay. Don't think we would return even if we won the lottary

    the food was excellent, good choice,well presented.Our room was in a house some 400 metres from the main hotel and you needed a car to get to the hotel for your meals. not so bad in the summer months on a fine warm evening but we went in October. one or two more staff would have been welcome.good relaxing two days.

    Location and view

    I feel it's past it's best, the room was clean but threadbare. The bed cover had a hole in it, the bathroom looked like it had come from the 1970's with the worst repair of a carpet I have ever seen! The table at dinner was too small, and very cramped. The staff got our order wrong twice, and didn't know the menu. Really it was a disappointment considering the hotel's reputation.

    The atmosphere at the hotel was much less intimidating than in the past when one sometimes felt as if there on sufferance.

    Consistently hearing ' no problem ' in answer to a request.

    Position. Comfort. Staff.

    Price. Too much food - yes - a serious comment. A very tired hotel.
