We stayed for 1 night in room 1. The room itself is absolutely beautiful. The bathroom is exceptional. It is decorated so tastefully in keeping with the age of the building. It is very clean throughout. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well.
There are a couple of things which let the hotel down, the parking is very limited and perhaps would be improved by having numbering to be allocated to the rooms? The reception desk seems to be very dark, with the table in front of it too low for writing on.
The meals we had in the restaurant both the evening meal and breakfast were unfortunately not to the same standard as the hotel. But restaurant aside, the hotel room and reception staff were lovely and couldn't be improved on. Well done!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the medieval town of Appleby, just outside the Lake District and 15 minutes from the M6, this intimate family-run hotel offers excellent food, in its relaxed newly refurbished bar areas and in the Conservatory Restaurant. We are a fish restaurant and have developed an enviable reputation for dishes such as Gumbo's, Chowders, Goan Fish curries, Fresh Mussels (3 different ways), Cajun Prawns and Calamari, and our constantly changing fish specials all fresh daily from Neves in Fleetwood. We still have our traditional sources of great beef and Cumbrian lamb on a grill menu so meat eaters are not left out! Originally a 16th Century coaching inn, it was rebuilt in the Victorian times and is now a Grade II listed building. It blends both the contemporary and the classical creating an atmosphere that reflects the traditional charms of the past as well as the sophisticated elegance of the present. With stylish soft furnishings, heaped cushions, deep sofas, polished wooden floors and open fires its homely comforts are further completed by warm and friendly hospitality and free wi-fi. Each of the 22 en-suite guestrooms are individually furnished and decorated. Beautifully appointed they offer all the necessary modern comforts and luxuries one would expect from a hotel of this calibre. Guests can choose from a range of different accommodation options including Single, Classic Double and Family options. For those special occasions they also offer Luxury Double rooms and spacious Suites. ... more less
