We stayed for 2 nights in October 2013 - also on an Amazon package.
The location is great - just above Rydal Water and very close to walking tracks through from Rydal to Grasmere and Ambleside.
We had a huge four poster bed room with the largest (and warmest) bathroom you have ever seen!!
The food at every meal we had in the restaurant was delicious and the Salmon and scrambled breakfast is lovely and so nicely presented you want to photograph it rather than eat it!!!!
The badger feeding every night is a new experience and the young barman James. (Just kidding Jay!!!!) has fantastic knowledge of real ales.
Real family feel to the hotel and bar, excellent food and a great location - as other people have said - if what you want is generic rooms and corporate service go somewhere else - book here for a proper Lakeland break
