Dear Allan and Sandy Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your recent experience with us at the Bearslake Inn. All our staff work exceptionally hard and it means a lot to them to read reviews like this. It does so disappoint us when some people only put up negative reviews all the time. When people, like yourselves, are motivated to publish a review when you've had a good experience we recognise it takes time out of people's busy lives to do so and so it means so much more to us. We really enjoyed sharing Christmas with you and look forward to welcoming you back to the Inn very soon With very best wishes Lisa, Julian and all the staff at the Bearslake Inn
