We stayed 2 nights in one of the cottage rooms and ate in the restaurant the first evening. The room was clean and comfortable with tasteful decor and the en suite shower was excellent.
All the staff were friendly and helpful and dinner was delicious.
But for a couple of small things we would have given it 5/5 - breakfast on the first morning was fairly chaotic and our order got missed with the result that it arrived very late and cold. Yet the following day it was perfect. Apparently they had a number of new staff so it should only be a temporary blip. Also the heating in the room seemed to be timed to come on at about 8am so it was a bit cold when we woke up.
But they're niggles really - it is a great little place to stay in the centre of Hawkshead and we'd definitely go back.
