“Would definately go again”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

From the minute we arrived we were met with friendly, happy staff. W e werent rushed at all while we waited for our friends to arrive, and this carried on all the way through our stay. At meal times we were given plenty of time to choose and enjoy our food. The fact they allow dogs was nice too. Although we don't have one they made the hotel feel homely. A great time at a great hotel . Going back again asap.

Love this hotel ,have stayed here a number of times and would recommend it for food, comfort and service. The staff are very helpful and the location is near to Bowness without being right in the centre.

Have just returned from a weekend break and I would like to say what a great place to stay this hotel is. It is in a great location, a short walk into Bowness for a bit of retail therapy on a cold, wet February day was much appreciated and meant that it was also good to visit other restaurants without having to drive.
The first night's meal was part of a deal and was of an extremely high standard, in fact my husband said that it was the best meal he had ever had. The manager of the restaurant, Laszlo was a joy, whenever we saw him throughout our stay he was smiling and very attentive to all the guests at the hotel - if only all managers could be of this very high calibre. He obviously inspired his colleagues to be just as helpful and pleasant both in the evening and at breakfast, I hope that the owners of the hotel appreciate Laszlo and the rest of his staff.

The room was clean and well decorated but on the small side, our room 212 faced onto the road which was a bit noisy at times but it didn't keep us awake.

All in all excellent value and a great place to stay.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a lake view.

Great location. Majority of staff were super polite and helpful, especially the evening waiter who seated us for dinner. The rooms were clean and beds very comfortable. We would visit again in the future!!

We had a lovely break, we booked a lake view room and also got amazing views of the snow capped fells. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant, and the staff very professional and helpful. Breakfast was also lovely. The hotel is just on the outskirts of Bowness, so a lovely walk to the lake, shops and cafes, all in all, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: A lake view room just makes it

We have always wanted to stay here ,but very let down ,the room 205 had the most creaky floorboards ever and also a fan/ boiler noise going all the time ,no sleep at all ,we asked to be moved which we were after first night however in next room - no sleep again due to rowdy drunken folks above which even receptionist heard &commented on when we checked out !
Never again came home exhausted

This was a special treat for a special birthday for my partner from her eldest daughter. We had bad experiences before in some 'deal' websites but glad to report this was an excellent break and hotel in a beautiful part of the country. We were booked in for 2 nights with evening meal included on first

Although we arrived early the friendly receptionist took our details advised we could park in the car park and complete check in 1 hour later.

The room was very bright and fresh and the large bath excellent to soak in after a day walking & shopping - wish we had know we could have had a Lake View would have been icing on the cake.

The evening meal was absolutely superb - partner had rack of lamb and I had roast lamb followed by pan cotta and trifle all superbly presented and tasting great - breakfast on both days was great - staff attentive and helpful without being obtrusive - would recommend this hotel 100% hope to come again

Room Tip: book a lake view
