After a bit of confusion over our booking, I must admit I had some misgivings about this hotel. But they were completely unfounded. We were impressed from the moment we arrived. The staff were welcoming and, although busy, were always happy to spare time to help or discuss anything. I felt that nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel looks as though it has recently been refurbished and manages successfully to blend modern with traditional decor. Everywhere, including the bedrooms, was spotlessly clean. Our bedroom (9), although not large, was very pleasant, comfortable and had a well appointed modern bathroom. The best thing about the room, though, was the spectacular view across Lake Windermere. There was no WiFi reception in the room but it could be accessed in the lounge for free.
The dinner servings were not large but were adequate, excellently presented and delicious. Just how I like them! Breakfast was also very good. If I had a small reservation it would be that the dinner menu does not appear to change very often and could become repetitive for more than a short stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night Travelzoo break here and would not hesitate to return.
