We had been planning on extending our trip at the Lakes and wanted to book another hotel in the area. Had been impressed with the location of this hotel and we decided to drop by and check it out before booking a room. After looking out at the view, which was stunning! We went to the bar and ordered drinks and a scone. Had to carry over our own to drinks to table, although there had been more staff than customers standing around, we were ok with this, but after waiting for quite a while for the scones my husband went to the bar to check on the delay. As he did, the bar man came out of another room and what felt like a reprimand, shouted over to us that he had just left these on a different table, as we felt like naughty school kids we got up but he waved us down to gesture he would bring them through. As he did he slid them over the table and I had to move my glass out of the way to save it from toppling over. It may sound a little petty ..but as a result of this, we decided not to part with our hard earned £400 plus for a room. Overall, I was very disappointed as I had high expectations for this hotel after checking its web site and its location and was really wanting to stay.
