My Wife and I stayed here on 24th July 2012 and the hotel in our view is one of the most delightful places we have stayed in the Lake District ( and believe me we have stayed in many over the years) i cant comment on the other rooms but the one we stayed in was fantastic as a forty something male the 40 inch samsung lcd wall mounted T.V did it for me alone, but my wife who is very fussy about cleanliness etc was more than impressed by the clean crisp white sheets on the bed, the spotless bathroom (some negative comments mention its size and angle of sink/toilet) but please remember this is a very old building but the owner has done wonders with its interior to make it as comftable as possible and the showers power/ temperature was perfect for us, All in all we gave the room 10 out of 10.
Our evening was spent downstairs in the bar dining room their my wife enjoyed some of the best scampi she has ever tasted and I chose the locally bred beef burger again very resonably priced and absolutley delicious, pints of very well kept Cockerhoop went down a treat and the wife enjoyed a very nice bottle of Anterra pinot grigio once again 10 out of 10.
Eagerly awaiting our Breakfast in the restaraunt the following morning we were once again treated to more of the same delicious food & great service from the staff employed at the Kings Head Yet again 10 out 10
I felt i had to write this reveiw as soon as i got home as the Kings Head really did make our stay that little bit more special.
