“Great hotel, super helpful staff”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

We stayed at the hotel for two nights and had two lovely ground floor rooms with doors opening onto the beautiful gardens, which was great as we had the dog with us. The rooms were lovely and were cleaned daily. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and meals were delicious. The atmosphere at the hotel was relaxed and welcoming and the staff were really friendly. Margaret was especially helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay here again.

A beautiful hotel in gorgeous surroundings. When we got inside the hotel, it was even better and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. A spacious comfortable family room. Good choice of breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for families with children or couples wanting a quiet, romantic break.

Very nice stay. The Breakfast was the nicest hotel breakfast I have ever had. Everything was homemade, even the jams. Beautiful porridge, all freshly cooked to order.

The room was comfortable though at the back of the hotel with no view and slightly damp and musty. This was due it appeared to the room being below floor level. We did not complain as we were there for just a night.

Nice shower and lovely eco friendly toileteries.

All Lakeland hotels are dear so this offered good VFM. Lovely staff, well trained, who could not do enough for you.

I stayed with my hubby, and 2 children - 13 & 10 and stayed in a family room for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel so welcome and comfortable. The room was large, with a superking bed and 2 camp-beds - plenty of room. It had a flat screen tv, small table with 2 armchairs, dressing table and stool, hairdryer, and a bowl of sweets which the kids loved! Staying at the hotel is wonderful, we ordered our drinks at the bar, sat down and within a couple of minutes canapes were served - olives, prawn toast, cheese sticks, mini quiches to name a few. Our evening meal order was taken and we left to relax in one of the sitting rooms whilst our meals were made. The food was fantastic, 3 courses - the sticky toffee pudding is pure heaven. Coffee or tea was served in the sitting room with homemade chocolates - couldn't eat them all, were too full of good food! The garden was lovely, nice tables to sit out in the sun on the patio through the french doors. Brilliantly situated - 5 mins to Ambleside and 10 mins to Windermere. Will DEFINITELY stay again - we were made to feel so welcome and fantastic value!

Stayed here for two nights. Booked through laterooms.com and got a double room for single occupancy for an average of £45 a night. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast with a wide choice. Hotel was very nice; quiet, clean and very comfortable. Room was excellent. Good bed, Panasonic flat screen TV, very clean and quiet. For the price I paid, I wouldn't fault it. Would definitely stay here again.

Have stayed in many hotels around the UK and this one was as good as any. Arrived on 20th November for two nights, just after the bad floods, which had caused a lot of disruption in the area. Checked with hotel before setting off and they even offered to reschedule our break even though we could still get through.

Hotel was very quiet, but suspect this was a combination of the time of year and also the weather, which I believed caused some other guests to postpone their trips.

The breakfast was very good and the evening meals were excellent and served by attentive staff. The room was very clean and spaious with a gorgeous bathroom.

Hope to return soon!

We took advantage of the 3 night midweek offer - £50 per person dinner, bed and breakfast. We were fortunate to be given a room with a balcony overlooking the fantstic gardens. The room was clean, spacious and serviced daily. The evening menu was superb - favourites included deep fried soft cheese and fish and chip starters; delicious soups or sorbets to follow and fillet steak, duck and pork fillet main courses. The dessert menu was equally tempting (sticky toffee pudding; raspberry creme brulee; seasonal fruit iced desserts; cheeseboard) and homemade chocolates arrived with coffee. Wine was from about £16 per bottle. Breakfast was equally delicious with homemade jams, fruit platters and the usual traditional English breakfast, cereals, croissants etc. The staff were very friendly and ensured we had everything we needed. Overall we thought it was excellent value for money and will look out for future deals.
