“Collected new car and drove home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012

Booked after leaving London.

Arrived 8.15 and we were in time for dinner at 8.30 (last orders 9pm)

Room was very nice although up two flights of stairs.

The room was immaculately clean. Probably the cleanest room I have stayed in for a long time.

Dinner was excellent and the staff were just tremendous.

Choice of food was very good.

Only complaint restaurant very very warm.

Great find.

Room Tip: Not sure. Ours was beautiful. Fantastic views over the lake. Wonderful bathroom with Jacuzzi. Up two...

Stayed for 3 nights for a mini honeymoon, staff were very good, helpful, courteous and friendly.
The 5 course meal that was included was 5 Star in every way, it will be a while before we have another meal that good.
The hotel room was very comfortable, with everything you would need for your stay.
We didn't use the Sauna or the pool, but both looked very clean and well maintained.
We are definitely looking at booking again and we would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Stayed here 3 times before, just returned from a 2 night mid week break,and it is still a wonderful hotel the hotel staff. are very friendly, nothing is too much trouble you only have to ask. On our first day the weather was glorious so we had drinks on the terrace when we returned from our exploring of Bowness and windermere which are only a 10 minute walk in each direction from the hotel.
The weather on Thursday pm was heavy rain,but the hotel is warm and cozy and we booked dinner on both nights which was very nice when you do not have to venture outside and you can just have coffee in the bar area in the lounge or in the conservatory afterwards most enjoyable.
We had a standard bedroom this time which are small but well appointed with a jacuzzi bath, very nice and clean with good quality furnishings.
Well worth the money , the lovely breakfasts and the 5 course evening meal, very enjoyable once again.

Stayed for the weekend with 3 friends, ... elevated position with lovely views.... breakfas and 5 course evening meal went down very well, stayed in the hotel the 1st evening, not much of an atmosphere, a little music would of gone down well. Rooms were nice and staff friendly enough. Pool was ok, although very shallow at one end which made swimming difficult, small sauna and steam room but adequate enough.
