The hotel is splendid - a large, very old and untouched National Trust owned property at the end of Great Langdale. The location is just divine with the building huddled under the Langdale Pikes, the views are to die for. The bedrooms/bathrooms are well kitted, comfortable and totally quiet at night. Breakfasts are vast and provide sufficient fuel for a long hike in the mountains.
The main hikers bar is as you would expect not luxurious but in the wet weather that we experienced we and all of our wet gear/boots were made welcome (there is a separate "comfy" lounge bar). The selection of real ales is excellant and the bar menu is good and the portions are sufficient to satisfy the hungriest of hikers.
Hotel staff made us very welcome and the Owner very generously gave us a donation to the charity which was the subject of our sponsored wlak that weekend.
