We found this place to be excellent, the staff are friendly and work very hard, the breakfast and evening food are brilliant and a great choice, the beer garden is great and a sun trap, prices are decent, our room was clean and very big but the water pressure and shower were the only disappointment of our stay something which requires updating in our opinion, will recommend and will return

We stayed for 3 nights in the annex. This is an ideal hotel for those wanting a warm welcome with friendly staff while walking or exploring the Western Lakes. The en-suite room was not very large but it was clean and well sanitised with a wonderful view towards Wasdale. Be careful as the floor became very slippy in the shower room after showering. Being wakened by the cockerel and the dawn chorus was a new experience for us city dwellers! The breakfast was mostly ordered although there was a small self service of packaged cereal and juice in small individual bottles. It would have been good to have been able to have some fruit, even a banana but no fruit was available. However, the dog was offered a sausage for his breakfast each day! One of our party got gluten free toast which was great. There is a large walled beer garden in which we ate at night. The staff here were excellent. If the weather had been poor, only residents could eat inside which made the environment feel safer in current circumstances. We had wonderful weather and had chosen to stay in the outside annex as we had a dog with us.

This looks an amazing Hotel, particularly the garden area. The accommodation was also great with a fairly new annex of rooms and very professionally equipped. The only down side to the accommodation was the dribble of a shower. Food however was lacking finesse and indeed authenticity. I had a gammon steak for Dinner, which was ok particularly the amazing chips. Her indoors opted for the Chicken Caesar salad. It was the worst she had ever been served, with no iceberg lettuce, a handful of nixed leaves instead, no Parmesan shavings and very little sauce. The breakfast the next morning was dreadful. The table was laid with two bowls of sauces and one of preserves. No butter, no sugar no milk, all had to be asked for. We both opted for the full English which came out within minutes so was clearly not freshly cooked. We weren’t asked if we wanted white or brown bread toast , but given white which would not have been our choice (other guests were given these options) The full English comprised basic pork sausage, two rashers of tough rubbery bacon, black pudding, beans and egg. No mushrooms, no tomatoes. It was dreadful. During our 5 days of touring the Lake District we had some amazing freshly cooked breakfasts. This was seriously bad.

Amazing little hidden gem. Staff were all so friendly and helpful. Hotel room was huge and immaculately clean. We had a suite with a big round bath which was amazing, bed was very comfortable and the room had everything We needed hairdryer, iron, full length mirror. We had food and drinks in the bar on the evening after a walk into gosforth village beautiful scenery, delicious food, and a very large choice of different gins and other drinks. The following morning we had breakfast in the restaurant which I cannot stress enough was perfection hats off to the chef best hotel breakfast I have ever had! The bacon was lean, the sausage was tasty obviously local produce. Overall our stay was lovely, very relaxing and we will definitely be visiting in the future. Highly recommend this beautiful hotel.
