Reviewed 24 March 2010

As usual it was excellent. The new suite at the top of the house was rather good and the food was perfect

We have just spent 2 nights here (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast) to celebrate 10 years of marriage..
It was wonderful. The staff friendly and attentive (hello, Martin & Cameron!), the food just delicious and the wine list vast.
Super comfy beds with millions of cushions, Molton Brown smellies and a bath I could swim in. Nearly.
It's quiet, chilled and the perfect place to hide for a couple of days... and to cap it THE SUN SHONE IN CUMBRIA. Unreal.
The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.
Would thoroughly recommend and can't wait to go back again soon.

A very beautiful and stunning hotel over looking Lake Windermere. The service was great, anything you needed you just asked, nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing.

I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. A lovely warm reception on arrival, followed by a tour on the hotel. The views of the lake are fantastic. The food is superb , but the most excellent asset is Andy the general manager who take time with all guests.

I attended a conference at this beautifull hotel this week, what an amazing place, from the breathtaking views to the superb welcome all the staff give you, and the food is just as amazing as the views ! the owner is an absolute gentleman and my hat goes off to him and his staff for the service, welcome and hospitality we recieved whilst there, I will definately be going back !

p.s. also must have the best bar in the Lakes !

We stayed for two nights midweek on an evening meal inclusive tariff. Mistake. You cant eat such rich food two nights on the trot so dont try. Fine as a one-off special occasion but you have to be a foodie really, although all very well cooked, the food was a bit fussy for my simple taste, and the selection of food on the second night was pretty much the same as on the first, in fact more restricted. Service was ok but a but shallow and perfunctory I felt. The drinks were expensive. Room was good modern clean with a great view. Lounge areas were ok but not so I felt comfortable relaxing there. We tried to change our booking so as not to eat in house the second night but didnt get cooperation from the hotel which was a bit disappointing and made me end up feeling a bit robbed. I would recommend it if you get a good deal, on a room only basis, and eating in house one night only, but not what we did....

To give peasachance (nice email address!):
Thanks very much for your review and we are sorry you didn't really enjoy the "rich food".
I agree it can be rich but it depends on what you chose. Most of our business is based on couples who stay an average of two nights, and over 90% eat in both nights. It's not for everyone who stays though obviously. On the other hand we have just had someone who stayed 10 nights and ate nearly every night!
Anyway, we not only offer the locally sourced and carefully cooked cuisine which most love (see some reviews below), but also a simple alternative including gourmet hamburgers, fish and chips and such like and of course because we are a full service hotel you can just have a sandwich or bowl of soup if that's what you want. We are flexible!

Travelzoo brought this to our attention. Winter offer includes B & B, dinner and champagne afternoon tea. It was all very good. The traditional tea was a real treat: enough for four people not two. The food is superb as is the service. Lovely views from the gardens and tarn.( lake ) The only negatives were the rather small standard bedroom, squeaky floorboards and thin walls which carried next door's TV noise.
