My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Daffodil for our anniversary. I'm not into the traditional old fashioned style hotels & b&bs you usually find in the Lakes so when I saw the pictures on the hotel website I knew we had to try it.
We had a lovely room with a juliet balcony looking out towards the lake and the hills beyond. The bed was comfortable if a little soft for me, and the bathroom had a lovely big bath and a powerful shower. I always think it`s the little things that make the difference in hotels like this - and the Molton Brown minis in the bathroom, complimentary bottled water and greetings card wishing us a happy anniversary left in our room were all small touches that I loved!
The service was excellent, especially in the restaurant where staff were attentive and friendly. The food was really good too - buffet style breakfast with locally sourced produce, and a good choice of dishes for dinner.
I agree with other reviewers in that the lounge area is lacking in atmosphere slightly, the layout and the fact that it`s a seperate room to the bar make it feel a bit like a waiting room. On the plus side from where we sat in the lounge we had a great view down onto the patio area, where a couple of wayward sheep had wandered up and were peering through the ground floor windows.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.
