What can I say about this hotel? The staff were so friendly and made you feel welcome from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. The rooms overlooking Lake Windermere were very well presented with excellent self catering facility if you wanted to make your own lunch. The location is perfect for the lakes and the mountains and we spent a lovely morning walking up a mountain to the snow!
The restaurant was superb and this was my teenage children's first taste of ‘Michelin Star’ food - a great introduction for them and when a 15 year old says 'gorgeous' (totally unprompted) about his food - you know it's good!
The little touches were what made me rate this hotel so highly, the chess board and puzzles dotted around the cozy lounge to keep everyone entertained, the wellingtons for loan if you needed them, and the children’s beds turned down in the evening with colour coordinated hot-water bottles warming their beds, meant that the whole family felt a little special.
Our short family break was very restful for all of us with a resounding – ‘Yes, we are glad we came with you’ from the teenagers.
And…Imagine my surprise to see this hotel featured on an episode of ‘The Trip’ featuring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon – it was fun showing our family ‘that’s where we sat for breakfast’!!!
