What can I say this hotel is fabulous!
Stayed in the suite over Christmas and could not fault anything in the room which was sooo spacious. It is very rare to find a bathroom with perfect lighting that makes you want to stay in the bathroom! The superking bed was fabulous as was the huge TV and gingerbread from Grasmere. I have never stayed in a hotel where there are cappucino sachets, galaxy hot chocoate and a good selection of teas to choose from. The breakfast was out of this world, just too much choice! It was served very quickly on hot plates (which I like!) and beautifully presented. I am a cappucino addict and was delighted when the waiter accommodated my request on both mornings as I think it was standard to have filter coffee and tea not a cappucino from the bar with breakfast.
I would not hesitate to come back to this hotel and would highly recommend it. Great location only about 10 minute walk into Ambleside. Also impressed that if you had to park in the public carpark due to the hotel car park being full, that they would reimburse your ticket. There was ample parking in the hotel car park so we did not need to but thought that this was a lovely touch as were all the extra's in the bedroom such as bathrobes, slippers, hairdryer, tray for dirty boots. Also lovely lighting in the room and huge fab radiators that heated the bedroom immediately if you turned them up. Also loved the DVD library in the hotel reception, another fabulous touch to a fabulous hotel! I usually find one little niggle if I stay away from home but not in this hotel - well done!
