My partner booked us in here to help celebrate my sixtieth birthday and he wanted to try the famous "cow pie". Managed to park behind the hotel, which was handy. Warm welcome as we booked in, but the member of staff who then manned the office for the rest of the evening could barely rouse himself to answer a question. The room (a family room) was huge, extremely warm as the weather was dire which is not unexpected for the Lake District, but the king size bed needed a new mattress as it was unsupportive and the springs twanged every time one of us moved. The lamps on the bedside table were very dusty, which was strange considering that the rest of the room was so clean. I had a poor night's sleep as I was disturbed by the street light directly outside the window - a blackout blind might be a good idea. The bathroom was also huge, but barely leg room to sit on the toilet and the grout in the tiles surrounding the bath/shower needed a good clean, which always puts me off! However the food was fantastic and the portions huge; I have never had such a large cooked breakfast. So, yes, I admit I'm pernickety, but it is not cheap to stay here and so I expect perfection for that money. I would visit again for the food, but wouldn't rush back to stay.
