This was our 4th visit and I am pleased to say we had a lovely break. The food and the staff cannot be faulted and it was great to see that the hotel is finally receiving some TLC in the form of redecoration. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and staff are very welcoming; the service is great. There was lots of choice at the breakfast buffet and the cooked option definitely sets you up for a day on the fells! In the evening, the lounge is very relaxing (we were the youngest ones there by a good many years, which may account for the relaxed ambience! Great for a quiet drink and for reading a good book!).
The hotel is in a super location providing easy access to the town - the second-hand bookshop is a real treasure trove and the little museum on the hill into town (free entry!) is well worth a visit, the curator is very kean and welcoming! Do pop by!
My only complaint would be with our room...we stayed in the old station and whilst the room was large and very quiet, the bathroom had no ventilation as the extractor fan was broken, this meant that the room was a bit whiffy and damp on arrival. Also there was a huge crack in the wall where somebody had pulled the handrail rather too hard!!! We were told that the room was awaiting decoration so hopefully it won't stay like that for long.
I would recommend this hotel to others.
