We visited for a meal and ate in the bar with our dog, it was cosy, the staff were very friendly and helpful and food was delicious! The pork belly was amazing! Can't wait to visit again soon, only downside if any was the staff didn't come and check the food was okay for us.

We first stayed here for our honeymoon, 27 years ago! Obviously it has changed hands since then! However, it has remained a very special place to us over the years. We last visited in November 2016 when we took our daughter and her boyfriend along with us....they were very impressed, especially with the breakfast, which I think was the highlight...

Welcoming staff, atmospheric property, nice room comfortable bed, large bathroom (downside I'm not a bath person and there was no shower) but lashings of hot water. Comfortable bar area and a very good selection of real ales kept well, We decided to dine in for our evening meal and were rewarded with a fine plate of fish and chips Mmmm!...

Very tastefully refurbished rooms but still retains its lakeland charm and character. Staff welcoming, lovely room and a good choice for breakfast. A little road noise or noise from the bar (depending on which room you're in) may reach you if you are a light sleeper, but this is neverthless a great hotel in a very convenient location.
