My husband and I stayed here in February for a couple of nights and had a great time. Arriving quite late on the first night we were delighted to find that we could still have a meal in the hotel, as we were very tired. The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. In the morning we had breakfast and we both really enjoyed it. We normally like to try different places to eat when on holiday but we were tired from a busy day in the Lakes and as we enjoyed our visit to the restaurant the night before, we opted to eat in the hotel again - excellent choice as it was all lovely. We went out for a few drinks in another local bar (it's on a main street so close to lots of other stuff) then went back to the hotel bar, where we borrowed a pack of cards. The bar staff, like the reception and restaurant staff were brilliant. Near closing time a member of staff let us know that although the bar was closing we would be able to make use of the (very comfortable) resident's lounge, which was great because we were able to buy a bottle of wine and just drink it there. It's not the Ritz but it was very reasonably priced, very clean and comfortable, and the staff were great so we would definately stay here again if we went back to the Lakes.
