Had a really enjoyable weekend at the Ravensworth which succeeds in so many ways - but is not quite as good as it could be.
Much was excellent - a really friendly and helpful welcome from the proprietor, an excellent deal, generally comfortable room with high quality and ample drinks and biscuits. The Ravensworth is well appointed with a pleasant lounge and very positive touches, such as free wi fi, a large collection of DVDs freely available. The breakfast was mainly delicious - an excellent "Cumbria Grill" and options such as Eggs Benedict and Scrambled eggs with Smoked Salmon.
However, in our eyes, it fell short of the top mark ... no fruit available for breakfast (although advertised), no croissants (ditto), bed sagging and rather uncomfortable, beam in the breakfast room heavily warped by the weather.
On the whole though, great value - extremely pleasant weekend.More
