Last year we had supper at Coniston Hotel, but arrived rather unkempt, after muddy walk. They kindly lent us a room to change, no charge, and were so friendly, the meal was so good, we resolved to return. Have just done so, with cousins, too. Such an incredibly welcoming hotel, everything spotless, superb food, in the most gorgeous setting - looked out over the lake and fields with sheep, idyllic. Could not have enjoyed it more. Dining staff, cleaning staff, Reception, everyone - so polite, so helpful and a joy to talk to...we can't wait to return. The owner, Mr Bannister, was celebrating his 80th, likewise my husband, and we were all (all the guests) treated to a glass of champagne each, before dinner, the proverbial icing on the cake! Even without the champagne, we found it all just perfect.
