We stayed as 2 couples and conveniently had rooms 1 & 2, right next to each other. They had great modern decor and the shower room was luxurious and spotless with great toiletries. The lake view rooms are definitely worth paying extra for, our doors led out on to the terrace where we were kindly served afternoon tea in the sun.
We had no complaints about the location as I'd read about it on here prior to our stay. We walked to Bowness once (turn left out of the hotel and left down next road to walk along the lake side road, rather than straight along the hilly one with no path). We used taxis the rest of the time as they're only £4/5.
Just a few little moans - towel radiator is on constantly and makes the bathroom and bedroom too hot. The windows could do with a good clean to enhance such special views, and a 'net' curtain/voile would be a good addition so the view could be admired from bed without feeling exposed to guests wandering passed. A later check-out, particularly on a Sunday, would be nice and may stop everyone piling out at 10.30!
I wasn't expecting anything amazing with it being a bargain weekend away through KGB deals, but it was brilliant value! Lovely and well organised service throughout. Lots of choice at breakfast and good selection of drinks/biscuits in room. Would definitely stay again if I found another offer, it far exceeded my expectations.
