We stayed at the Fayrer Garden 20-22 November 2011. The hotel itself is lovely, but it was definitely the staff that made our stay so special.
We stayed as part of the KGB £99 deal and upon arrival were shown a standard room and a much larger room. We were pleasantly surprised to be given the larger room, which should have been subject to an upgrade fee, for no extra cost. We both agreed that we would have been very disappointed to have been paying the full price for the much smaller standard room. The room we had was lovely with a fantastic whirlpool bath and a view out to the lake. The whole hotel was very clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was of a very high quality with a good choice. We were both pleased to see that it was table service rather than a buffet-style breakfast. The service was very good throughout our stay, and special mention should be given to the night porter who couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was comfortable. We didn't eat at the hotel during our stay, instead preferring to make the 20-25 minute walk into Bowness then returning by taxi (which only cost about £3.50).
We were both very impressed with the hotel and would return, although I'm not sure we'd pay the regular full room rate.
