“Incredible stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

I travel a lot and all over the world and rarely do I find as good of service as we had here. The owner, Mike, was an amazing host and the entire staff was extremely attentive and pleasant. The chefs were amazing and the view is wonderful. We stayed in two different rooms #1 which was on the back corner with a wonderful view. We moved to #4 when we decided to extend our stay. The room was smaller but still quite nice. The entire stay was very peaceful and enjoyable. It's not far from the beautiful lakes and some wonderful hikes. I would stay here again

What really makes this place is the location, staff and fantastic food. We were made to feel more than welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff were attentive and friendly. We stayed for 2 nights as we were walking the Skiddaw massif. The brilliant location meant that we could walk straight from the door - a real bonus! We ate in the Coach House the first evening which was more than adequate but this was really was surpassed on the second night in the restaurant. The food was superb. We eat out as least twice per month when we visit the Lakes and can honestly say that the restaurant food was on a par with trendy a la carte restaurants in Bowness. If we had any suggestions for improvement it would be a makeover of the bathroom which was a bit outdated and had a small amount of mould on the ceiling. That said, it was scrupulously clean. Would definitely stay again.

This was our first time staying here, I'm so glad we did. The owner Mike made us feel so wecome as soon as we arrived. As did all of the lovely people who work there. The hotel is exceptionally clean, and very comfortable. The food is some of the best I've ever had. My only complaint is I had to come home. We will definitely be returning and staying longer than the three nights that we stayed for this time. Thank you Mike and the team, can't wait to come back.

We didn't stay at the hotel but went there for an evening meal in the Stables Bistro. Arrived to a warm welcome had drinks in the conservatory. There was some guests sitting out on the terrace with drinks and food. Our order was taken. The bistro is exactly what it says and the tables are arranged in what I would think was once was the stables The food was delicious all made in the kitchen by James. The ambience was very comfortable and we were made more than welcome without being OTT very professional without you noticing.. All in all it was such a great night. Had a quick look in the dining room it was so nice it would be lovely for a special meal. The restaurant has received an AA rosette so big congratulations. The owners and staff were just perfect. Will definitely go again

We stayed here for two nights the room was very nice although the bathroom was in need of updating. The whole place was very clean.We liked the short walk from the hotel to the lake. The food was the best we have had and all the staff were very friendly.

Throughout our stay the staff were very friendly. We booked the signature room which was fantastic, huge bed, huge bathroom and a brilliant view of surrounding mountains. A trail is right on the lodges doorstep great for fellow explorers.

I can't fault this accommodation from the location to the owner and staff it was first class from arriving until departure. Completely recommend this establishment. The local gin and tonic is a must do. The food was perfect and served on a plate rather than a chopping board !

Room Tip: Perfect location for a romantic getaway
