Good value for the price, booked via late rooms only 2 days before, very few hotels accept a dog, note the £15 charge.
Warm welcome, given room 4 which contained a four poster, turned out to be very comfortable, the towels were arranged as swans on the bed.The view from the window over the hills by Thirlmere was outstanding. The room was warm, nice radiator. Good sized TV with plenty of channels. The hotel is old with plenty of character, enjoyed the undulating creaking floors and low beams and the fire in the lounge.
The bathroom was well presented with claw foot bath and plenty of hot water, interesting noisy pipes, more character.
We didn't eat dinner at the hotel although the menu looked good, the breafast choice was varied we tried the full english with tea and toast and sat in the window and enjoyed the view of Skiddaw.
Overall very good, the dog enjoyed it too, will come again.
