“Very nice view”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We booked this at last minute, parking is at the back of the property. Our room was spacious and we had a lovely view of the lake. The bed was a superking size so it was like sleeping at home. The bathroom was spacious as well but the shower was very hot when using until we sorted it out. The room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was a bit unreal, we were given juice as soon as we sat down and cereal was served to you, not help your self as we have been used to. My husband was asked if he wanted a full breakfast, I was not, but it was served to me anyway. It was very nice though. They could do with more choice of tea thought as they only have ordinary tea and not everyone drinks that these days. Frank and Collette are both very friendly and from Liverpool our home town.

The Guest house is only 1 minute from the town centre, we would recommend anyone to stay here.

Room Tip: get one at the back better view

Had a fantastic time. The hosts were friendly and informative. Felt like we were coming home after a wonderful day sight seeing and exploring the delightful shops and beautiful walking trails.
Would definitely stay here again.

The guest house was charming, Collette and Frank were very welcoming ,we had booked a lake view room which had stunning views of the lake,, breakfast was very filling and was cooked from fresh for you set you up for the day, ideal location for the Shops, Bars, and Restaurants, the building was very old so stairs were not very wide, so if you find stairs hard book ground floor room,,, would highly recommend cant wait to return ,,,,,,,,,,,,,the budding artist and florist

On the face of it the guest house seemed OK. The room was clean, the breakfast was fine and it is in easy reach of the lake. The problem is the way it is run. Frank (the artist) the man of the house is a very amiable guy who is a nice easy going mine host, but sadly it goes a bit downhill after that. I was not interested in cancelled bookings, the cost of running the place related to me by mine hostess. I was asked to pay by cash which in this day is odd seeing that a payment terminal existed in the lounge/breakfast room. No receipt was given but I wasn't too bothered. Car parking is a bit hit and miss with limited parking at the rear of the property but you can usually get it sorted by deft parking skills. The owners were helpful where possible but the overriding issue of the dialogue on the running of the property is not what is needed. A decision has to be made whether the guest house is being run for the benefit of the owners or their customers. Once that is sorted I think you may find that all will be well.

Room Tip: If you have walking problems ask for the ground floor room as the stairs are steepish and narrow. Yo...

Unfortunately Field House has the potential to be great and if the chap there was on his own, I'm sure it would be. Be warned by the ladies though, they smoke indoors and there is a constant smell coming up the staircase from their apartment below. They will try and overcharge you and they aren't scared of an argument so be careful, they also forced us to pay by cash... Its a real shame because initially we thought we had landed on a gem of a place and being regulars to the lakes, we were looking forward to making it a regular place to stay. My advice is shop around, it is competitive for a reason... there are better options available.

We stayed at the Field House Guest House for 2 nights and I will never be going back there again. I didn't realise that it was still legal to smoke in doors, so was in for a treat when the hosts were smoking downstairs in their living area, stinking the rest of the place out. We were consistently hassled by the owner regarding other parties cancelling late notice which was also very annoying, as I was not them.

It was also very odd how we did not receive any confirmation when booking the rooms. Had to ring back a few times to confirm that we had actually been booked it. Sure enough we had, but was also odd that we were asked to settle the bill in cash and weren't offered a receipt. Then after the bill was settled, we were told that we owed another £10 per night because we had a lake view. Having had no confirmation of the booking, this was not acceptable. We did not ask for a lake view, nor was it a particularly good view, as the lake is about quarter of a mile aware and theres just was ground behind the hotel. I didn't pay the extra £20, it was essentially daylight robbery.

The plumbing is in the dark ages. Every time upstairs went to the toilet we knew about it, put it that way.

The whole thing was a bitter taste to swallow. Its only saving grace was the breakfast was very nice indeed. But thats it really. Avoid.
