We are regular visitors to Coniston and have stayed at the black bull many times and once at the crown...The Sun is by far the worst!!! We have just returned from a 3 night break here with our springer spaniel! I booked by phone and was quoted £260 for the 3 nights inc the dog, by bar manager, Karl. When we checked out, we were told "oh no it's £10 per night for the dog, not per stay" my first gripe! The room was in desperate need of some TLC!!! We must have stayed during the hottest nights of the summer, so far, and you wouldn't believe the bed cover was a thick winter duvet...much too warm for summer! The curtains were not black out ones, so at sunrise the bedroom was light and woke us up about 5am each day! The kettle in the room was "black" inside, someone had obviously switched it on without any water in it!!! Now, breakfast...well the full English was very nice, when it finally arrived! Breakfast was served between 8.30-9.30am, we used to go down about 9ish. There was never any orange juice left or any coffee in the pot!!! You were made to feel as though you were putting them out if you asked for any!!! Anyway my final gripe...they need to get a gardener, and return the gardens to their former glory! We will not be staying at this hotel again!!!!
