Bridge Buttermere is a pet-friendly hotel that serves as a base camp for walkers and hikers who want to explore Buttermere Fell. The hotel is perfect for those who favor peace and quiet.
The hotel has 21 non-smoking rooms, each with Laura Ashley fabrics, a private bathroom, telephone and hair dryer, as well as tea/coffee making facility. Self-catering apartments are also available.
Free Wi-Fi is available in public areas and parking is available onsite. Room service, laundry service and concierge are also available.
A complimentary breakfast is served daily, and the property’s restaurant serves a rotating menu of British cuisine with an extensive selection of wine and spirits. A pub and fireside lounge are located onsite.
Bridge Buttermere is conveniently located near the Whinlatter Forest Visitor Center and Buttermere Fells, as well as the caverns of Honister Slate Mine and Go Ape outdoor activity park.
Many guests say that the Bridge is the perfect place to recharge since it's quite a distance away from city life and the property lacks a mobile phone signal. Others love the serenity of the area and the rolling terrain makes for a perfect low impact hike.
Some guests praise the hotel for being pet-friendly and note that designated rooms for guests with pets are well-kept and do not have an unpleasant “dog” smell.
Several guests note that hotel staff is accommodating and friendly, and that many speak several different languages. Others mention that the staff is friendly and accommodating not just to human guests, but to pets as well.
Some rooms are noisier than others
Several guests say that the extractor fans from the kitchen hum incessantly during the day and the bustle of the kitchen permeates to the rooms above. Others note that public areas, other than the restaurant and bar, are unusually cold.
Most guests comment that the dinner dress code in the restaurant is a little too formal and that the four-course dinner leaves room for improvement. Others suggest visiting the walker's bar first since a rotating menu is available and the atmosphere is more casual.
Issues with management
Some guests note that the on site manager can be more accommodating to guests by asking about special dietary needs or instructions upon check in. Others feel printed updates about sudden changes in hotel hours would be more effective than if only a verbal update is given.
