We both enjoyed our recent stay here. It's a short drive to Coniston Village with its local shops for gifts and enough pubs if you like to drink.
Helen was very friendly. Our room was as it should be: comfortable bed, lovely hot shower with plenty of water. There was a double wardrobe with plenty of room for your clothes (with enough hangers). Everything was clean, there were wine glasses and a corkscrew which was a thoughtful touch. There are plenty of maps and books giving information about local walks etc.
The only thing we would mention is that if you're used to always having two packets of biscuits on your refreshment tray as standard in four star accommodation, there was only one packet; i.e. one biscuit each. There was coffee but just three teabags (not good if you like plenty of tea) :-) . We know its "complimentary" and yes, we could have asked for more but we feel in four star accommodation a little more could be provided. We stayed there early September and the central heating seemed to come on for a couple of hours in the morning and in the evening, so if you were to arrive late in the evening the heating would probably be turned off. When staying in accommodation we like to be able to control the heating at a time that suits us, although we do realise heating is not on overnight.
Breakfast is served at 8:30 am although you can have it up to 9:15am so no leisurely lie-ins at the weekend. :-) Breakfast was lovely, fresh, plentiful and lots of toast and tea if you wanted. There was also juice, fresh fruit and yoghurts.
We both enjoyed our stay in Coniston and would visit the area again.
