“Wonderful Break!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We stayed for three nights in a lovely room with a beautiful outlook over Windermere. The service was pleasant and helpful; professional without being officious and everyone had a genuine desire to be as helpful and friendly as they could be. The lounges were welcoming with all-day log fires and comfortable chairs. The service in the restaurant was as good as elsewhere in the hotel and the food was tasty, varied, inventive and beautifully presented. We ate in every night and the food was consistently fantastic. This is a a gem of a hotel: perfect for a relaxing break.

We stayed here mid March and were blessed with wonderful weather and so could enjoy the grounds and terrace, both of which were wonderful. We know the area and the lake very well as we have spent many years coming here staying in various country house hotels on the lake and we moor a boat on Windermere too.
Very good value for money, came on a two night deal. Room was lovely (got an upgrade), big window with lake views and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast plentiful and freshly made to order. Staff were amongst the most obliging and friendly that we have ever come across. The only thing that stopped the extra review point was that the room next door's bathroom seemed to be behind our bed and we could hear the extractor fan going on and off through the night , although it didn't waken us. Will certainly be back.

We stayed here on a deal from travelzoo And we cannot speak highly enough of the place.
The hotel, the scenery, the staff, the food and the cleanliness of the rooms are second to none. We look forward to another visit in the near future

My husband and I spent 2 nights here as a break and could not have been happier with the hotel, surroundings and service we received. We ate in the restaurant both evenings and the food was wonderful.Staff could not have been more helpful from the minute we arrived to when we departed. Thankyou.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view. Some rooms are in the new part of the hotel and do not look out over the lake.

We booked this as a two night break with Travelzoo.
From arrival to departure all the staff were very friendly, cheerful and professional, the hotel was beautifully appointed and the food was of a gourmet standard with wide choices. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to returning.
