Upon arrival we were greated by Sue, was very welcoming and friendly. She showed us to our room and gave us tne usual tour and information.
The rooms have character and were adequately furnished and very clean. The wardrobe actually had enough hangers too! The bathroom was equipped with a great shower, heated towel rail and plenty of clean towels. The bed was very comfortable although it did creak a little! Our room had two windows, one of which was double glazed and I was concerned that it would be noisy or cold, I need not have worried - the heating was great and nights were very quiet and peaceful. There is also a drying room for walkers to dry coats, boots etc.
Breakfast was fantastic (full english) with a help yourself buffet of cerials, yogurt etc. Staff were also very accommodating with breakfast, taking orders for things like sausage sandwhiches which were not on the breakfast menu. Coffee was served in an individual cafetiere.
The location is great, although it is very close to a Jewson builders yard. Thiz does not cause any problems even with noise so don't let that put you off. The hotel is just a short 5 mins walk from the lake and is centralto most shops, restaurants and bars. The Italian restaurant, 'Ristoranti' does fantastic food and I would recommend it - book your table, though, it gets very busy.
The only downside is that car parking can be a little difficult. The hotel has its own car park but it is very small and not easy to get into, or out of some of the spaces. Parking on the quiet side road outside the hotel is okay but be aware that there are restrictions 9am to 6pm.
all in all though, a great place to stay and one which represents great value for money. We will definitely stay there again.
