I stayed here with my partner for 2 days from 27th-29th December 2012 as a Chistmas treat. We had been before in Summer 2011 and enjoyed our stay. When we booked, the lady on the phone was very friendly & helpful and checked which room we were in last time. This room (17) wasn't available so we were put in room 14 which she informed us was smaller but with a bigger bathoom. As we were tavelling with 2 dogs she said if a larger room became available she would move us to it.
The room was fine, very nice but a little small - with a lovely bathroom, very hot water and a nice bath with shower over it. Moulton Brown products to use too.
The bedroom overlooked the front gounds of the hotel and had a pull down blind which would need to be down if getting changed! After a long day and a meal out we decided to head back early & watch some TV in the comfort of our room. Unfortunately the TV had no reception and we couldn't watch anything - we mentioned this at reception & the next day it was fine!
The only minor negatives that come to mind are that the room was very warm even after we turned the radiators off and we could hear doors and floorboards creaking as people were walking around on our floor, but this stopped around midnight.
The breakfast was wonderful, with tea, coffee, various fruit juices and a 'help yourself' buffet of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants, cheeses etc. We sat down in the lovely dining area and were served some toast & asked what we would like from the menu. I had the full English beakfast which I can't fault and which kept me going all day. My partner had eggs benedict which were also delicious.
Reasonably priced for 2 night's B&B in a beautiful part of the world at £200 for 2 plus £25 for our dogs. I'm sure we will return.
Oh, and there was also free use of the leisure/gym facilities at the nearby Langdale Chase, but we didn't get chance to try these out.
