What our People Say


Since starting work at the 4 star Inn on the Lake in 2013, I have learnt advanced techniques which have all helped in my progression to become head chef of a two Rosette kitchen. As a young head chef within Lake District Hotels, I look after a team of 13 chefs
James Watt, age 27, Head Chef at the Inn on the Lake

Lake District Hotels are putting me through a business college course that otherwise would be costly for an individual such as myself so it is a really big help as they do want you to learn outside the job and will support you in any way that they can. I enjoy working at the hotel and would recommend it to those individuals who are up for a challenge and like to go out of their way for others.
Evie, Receptionist at Inn on the Square
