I have never been to the Lake District before and therefore had to rely on other travelers' reviews. I decided to try The Cartwheel - and luckily got a room over the bank holiday weekend (I stayed for 2 nights).
Tina and Bernie are wonderful people, helpful and caring, who made me feel very welcome. My single room was small, but compact with single bed, desk and drawyers, a small TV and a sink (my room was not ensuite - 2 rooms have shared facilities, all others are ensuite). Everything was very clean and tidy, and the breakfast was heaven. Every morning you could start with cereals and fresh fruit followed by either a full English breakfast (vegetarian option available) or sandwiches / toasts (several different fillings to choose from).
Tina and Bernie are also very familiar with the town and area and could give valued recommendations for walks and restaurants etc. I really enjoyed my stay at the Cartwheel and if I make it up to the Lake District again (hopefully!) this would be my first choice to stay again!
Thank you Tina and Bernie!
