This is a small traditional-looking Lake District hotel which has been carefully and very effectively modernised. Our room despite being on the carpark side was quiet ; it was very well-thought out and comfortable with a most excellent shower room.
We were on a half board deal which was great, because we thought the food was excellent. Beautifully cooked and interesting without being over elaborate. Suited us very well.
Best of all, Rob, the front of house half of the two owners, was a very attentive and friendly host and his staff were just brilliant.
The location, part way along one of the roads leading into Grasmere, was convenient with a spacious carpark. There was a quiet well-laid out garden at the back leading down to the river. We saw plenty of wonderful views of lakes and hills when we were out and about. So the fact that this hotel does not have one of its own did not matter to us, given all its other pluses.
