Spent a three night break over the weekend of our wedding anniversary at this hotel. We had paid for a scenic view and could just see the lake glittering in the distance over the trees. The reception staff were very efficient and quickly changed our duvet for sheet and blankets which we prefer. We found the food quite acceptable ,breakfasts were good with some lighter options to the full English,although, I did enjoy the Cumbrian sausage.All the waiting staff were very pleasant and kept their smiles even when dealing with a few awkward old ladies!It is a bit of a slog up the hill from town or lake but there is a good bus service. The hotel do reserve parking spaces at a cost , we did not bother and always managed to park in a non reserved spot.
As the hotel has several coach parties I think perhaps they should arrange more entertainment for those customers who are restricted to staying at the hotel.Another plus is that there are electronic safes in the rooms ,much better than having to carry a key around. The room was spacious ,clean with a couple of comfy armchairs and we found the bed very comfortable .
