We could not have envisioned how perfect this day would be. Everything was so well organised and the staff were amazing. We had an Autumn wedding but still managed to get married outside with a sunny ceremony under the gazebo, and it was magical.

So on the 29th May myself and my now husband Daniel Yates(??????) got married at this stunning venue. It was Amazing the best day of our lives.Someone asked me would we do anything different my answer is NO, here's why ... The location aside is breathtaking even in all weather conditions, the staff are second to none. There's nothing they won't can't do for you, not just the bridal party but also your guests. They are polite, helpful and very friendly. Every staff member we came into contact with was this way and they are a credit to Gary the general manger. He must be so proud of what he's achieving. The wedding itself was flawless and Jonathan made sure it stayed that way, the food was to die for and again the staff amazing. We were fortunate to have the weather on our side, it was sunny and hot so we got our outside wedding which was great. We spoke to one young man Lewis who was working in the bar he was fantastic very chatty and telling us all about the area and what planes fly over, he also told us that this hotel is 4 star's due to not having a swimming pool. We beg to differ, it might be a 4* hotel but it has 5* staff - keep up the hard work guys. We will defiantly be returning and so too will some of our guests - who all commented how amazing the venue is, and why we chose it!

Somewhat belatedly we are writing to formally thank you and your team for making our wedding day of 17th May so fabulous! From the day we first walked in to the IOTL we loved it and you all made us feel so welcome. Kerri has to deserve a very special mention, what a great asset she is to your team! Whatever questions or ideas we came up with she tried to accommodate them or if not possible, then come up with a workable alternative. She was flexible, practical, patient, warm and very supportive. Teresa and Holly were also great when she wasn't available. You do not have any weak links in this team! Thomas was really helpful on the 17th and the night before, a pleasure to deal with and again very supportive and warm. Alison and I, together with all our guests, had the best day, everyone complimented your staff on their friendliness and warmth, they loved the food and all the little touches. Thanks once again and we look forward to visiting often over the next years!

Best day of our lives

By Leonie & Paul, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 11 May 2018

We had the best day of our lives on Friday on our amazing wedding day. We don’t really know how to explain just how amazing it was to have our wedding at this incredible place. To all the fabulous staff at the Inn on The Lake we physically can’t thank you enough for making our day as perfect as it was. From the moment we stepped foot in the hotel when we had our show around we fell in love with this beautiful place. All the staff we have encountered on our wedding journey have been incredible and genuinely cannot do enough for everyone they meet. We would like to say a special thank you to Kerri Barr for helping with all our enquiries and planning and a special thank you to Johnathan Wild for looking after us and all our guests so incredibly well on our wedding day, which was also his birthday and he spent the full day looking after us to make sure it went without a hitch, before we had even considered small details everything was sorted, Johnathon is 5 steps ahead, everyone has had such a great experience of the hotel and spoke so highly of all the staff.

Thank you to Kerri Barr for all the emails over the past year and making it so hassle free Thank you to Johnathan Wild for the organisation on the day. Made me and my husband feel so relaxed. And all the other staff at Inn On The Lake, especially ones that sent out a search party for the missing peter rabbit stuffed toy, our godson was over the moon when returned. You are all incredible.

Dream came true

By Michelle & John, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2018

Finally have a moment to sit down after getting married on the 29th April! What an amazing venue, amazing staff and amazing organisation making my wedding day simply .... Amazing!! In 2011 I stood half way up Helvellyn looking down on the Inn on the Lake and said to my now husband “I would love to get married there” - well Thank you Inn on the Lake you made my dream a reality! From meeting Kerri last year I realised quickly she has everything in hand and is very experienced to being introduced to Johnathan the day before who’s attention to detail and ability to make you feel at ease is outstanding! To all the other staff who did everything possible to make our day the best - Thank you. The highlight of my day was when Johnathan took me through to the Candleroom and asked if everything was OK. How someone took the exact image from my head and replicated it I don’t know. It was just stunning. Thank you to the staff at the Inn on the Lake.
