“Wonderful gem in the lakes”
Reviewed 1 March 2011

Arrived for a two night stay to be greeted by a roaring fire and tea and gingerbread. Recently refurbished room, beautifully appointed, very comfy bed. Dinner was first class, with excellent service. Plenty of comfortable sofas in numerous beautiful lounges for coffee and afternoon tea. Breakfast was all freshly cooked and again to a very high standard. Waitress came round offering warm croissants fresh from the oven-lovely touch. Second night went across the road to 'Tweedies' six hand pulled beers and more excellent food---what more could you ask for?

On entering and being welcomed by a roaring log fire and cheery smile from the receptionist we suspected that this would be a wonderful place to relax for a couple of nights....we weren't disappointed. Our (four poster) bedroom was very comfortable, clean and well appointed and you sank into the bed at night (although personally I prefer a firmer matress). Meals were delicious and care had been taken to prepare everything with the degree of quality and attention to detail which leaves a very positive impression. The lounges etc were extremely comfortably furnished and it was a pleasure to relax in them with a pre and post dinner drink. However, what really made the break wonderful was the level pof service which we received from EVERY member of staff. They were courteous, friendly, efficient, unobtrusive and nothing was too much trouble. It was the type of service which is becoming increasingly rare even in hotels of this category and whoever is responsible for staff training deserves complimenting highly. I am trying to find something which could have been improved to balance up the review but have failed!! I would highly recommend the Wordswoth Hotel for your stay in the Lake District.

Stayed at the Wordsworth Hotel this weekend and am so impressed with the new owners/improvements have had to write a review ! Having stayed there a few times before I noticed a huge difference - the staff were really lovely - especially Gabrielle who worked very hard to make our stay memorable. Rooms were lovely - I looked at a few as we were with friends.The food could only be described as excellant and full of flavour its worth staying at the hotel to eat as it was reasonably priced for such high standard tasty food and attentive staff. Book this hotel - its really worth the treat !! A*********************** cant waite to save some pennies and return !

We went to relax and we certainly did that. Superb hotel in every way, great service (nothing was to much trouble.), great room ( and ours was a standard room), great food we had such a great time we really didn't want to leave. We will be staying there again and soon

On arrival we were warmly welcomed and a cosy log fire set the scene in the reception area. Tea was served and delicious gingerbread accompanied it. We were led to a lovely spacious room with great view.
The meals were wholesome but I did not feel as though they reflected the 2 rosettes awarded to the restaurant- I could not on any count describe it as 'fine dining' as described by the hotel . It is not worth the £30 price for dinner as it is at best 'average' fare and shows no finesse in either cookery skills or presentation.
The staff were all very pleasant and our stay was very restful.
On leaving the member of staff( kelly) who checked us out forgot to give us the bottle of whisky which was part of the offer for eating in the restaurant on the second night. However the hotel was prepared to put it right ( after ringing them when I got home to advise them that I had not been given the whisky) and put the value of it on my credit card - honourable!
Another lovely touch( when I got home I found that I had left my mobile charger in the hotel room) was that the hotel sent me my mobile phone charger and paid the postage even though I offered to pay it. How nice was that !
( I will have to start thinking more clearly before I leave hotels rather than remembering everything when I get home.)
A big thank-you to the Wordsworth Hotel for a lovely stay and for posting on my mobile phone charger.
