Lake District Hotels

Discover the lakes brings you the best Lake District hotels in whatever budget you choose. We have hotels from a basic standard up to the most luxurious 5 star hotels including boutique hotels and family friendly hotels.

Hotel accommodation has improved dramatically over the years we have been running this site and the Lakes remains good value and of course there are hotels in stunning locations overlooking the lakes themselves with panoramic views.

We try to personally visit as many hotels as possible and our comments can be found at the bottom of the individual hotel pages in the “in our view” section. If we have given the hotel a positive review then it means we like it and you will too!
