As good as moderately priced hotels get. Nothing to fault and location among the best in UK at any price. Staff superb, food good and organisation exemplary. The best value hotel in the Lake District, and I've been to a few.

Great base for a range of high and low level walks, accessible by public transport, ferry on Ullswater also. This hotel is the best for friendly, attentive service and fantastic value for money plus amazing menu and meals served with style.

Room had lovely view over towards Ullswater. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choices for both hot or cold breakfasts. Dinner at night was excellent with 4 choices for starters, main and dessert courses all served by an excellent staff for whom nothing was too much trouble.
