Thanks to a lucky 'upgrade' we stayed in probably the best room (6) in the hotel; it was superb. Dual aspect windows meant we had great views of Ullswater and the lovely gardens. Resident rabbits on the lawn and squirrels by the ornamental walkway made this a particularly delightful place for a relaxing amble and observing the local wildlife!
The inside of the hotel was very classy with charming public rooms, such as the library and lounge areas. This is a great place for tranquility and peace,
The food was marvellous. The starter, smoked mackerel with apple and hazelnut salad was sheer bliss! This was followed by the pork belly which was rather scrumptious. As a final flourish I had the ginger cake parfait which was delicious; probably overload here, but that's my fault, not the chef's!
