Beautiful hotel with views to die for. Probably the best hotel around Ullswater
Rooms equally good but perhaps need a coat of paint and TLC some time soon.
What a shame they go and ruin it with an evening main course meal that a best could be described as portion control and at worse pathetic invalid food
"Fish of the day" consisted of two tiny tail end triangles of plaice fillet (cooked weight estimated at no more than 50 grammes) on a small mound of risotto rice.
The price of this, I quote from the menu, " complete meal" was £21 so I estimate around 50p in raw materials at retail prices if I am generous.
The hotel agreed to a 50% discount but sorry the damage was done
The next 2 nights we voted with our feet and dined well at the pub down the road.
Come on McDonald you can do better than this
