We have just returned from a stay at Holbeck Ghyll Country House, first I must say the location is lovely with fantastic views. The staff were very attentive.
We spent two nights in the lake district.
We chose this hotel because we were looking for something very special because it was our first weekend away without the kids for years.
Our room was in the lodge £390 PER NIGHT. I think that this price was all for the view. We had two single beds that had been put together and you fell down the middle of them.
Cheap coffee in the room like travel lodge.
The room was nothing special. Apart from the view.
The food was quiet nice. Michelin Star rated. Posh portions and very well presented but needed a sandwich later in the evening.
£10 for a pimms.
The previous night we had stayed at the Waterhead Hotel in Ambleside. It was half the price and fantastic! A very large room with king bed. Complmentary fruit, water, gingerbread and cafetiere with real ground coffee. Contemporary style. Fab bathroom and lovely food. We wished that we had stayed two nights there.
We just think that it's a very overpriced place to stay and came away feeling disappointed becaused we felt cheated that the cheaper hotel was better.
