The hotel is located in the very beautiful and peaceful Langdale Valley, at the foot of Langdale Pike, approximately 20 minutes drive away from Ambleside. The area is very popular with hikers, walkers and cyclists.
My room was located on the top floor and was only accessible by several flights of stairs. It was a decent size, with a comfy bed, tv and a compact en-suite. There was neither any wi-fi or mobile reception in the room, though free wi-fi is available downstairs in the main lounge, bar areas and some rooms on the lower floors.
The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. The barman is very knowledgeable about the drinks he serves, but the highlight of this hotel is the quality of the food. I stayed half-board and both the breakfast and in particular the evening meals were brilliant. There was a nice choice on the menu each night and the most difficult thing was choosing what to have as they all sounded delicious.
The hotel is well situated for anyone looking for a base to tour around the southern end of the Lake District, who likes to stay in a remote area rather than within the hustle and bustle of a town or city.More
