Tasty breakfast with lots to choose from.

It is worth returning to The Rothay Garth for the breakfast alone! The hotel serves a delicious breakfast range daily, including cooked, vegetarian and continental options. Where possible locally-sourced ingredients are used.

Negative Reviews

Old fashioned TVs in some rooms.

The TVs in some rooms are not ultra-modern widescreen devices, something which has been picked up on by some former guests.

Low water pressure can be a problem.

As seems to be the case with a number of hotels in the Lake District, there can be problems with the water pressure in the en-suite bathrooms. This can result in some showers that lack a bit of power.

Wi-Fi doesn't work in guest rooms.

The Rothay Garth do provide free Wi-Fi for guests. Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi is limited only to use in the resident's lounge and is not throughout the hotel.
