We initially booked through Travelzoo so had a discount off the full price but paid a supplement for our initial 2 days in a Superior Lake Room that had plenty of space for an extra bed for our 9 y/o old son. ( However see below re subsequent room ). The Hotel was quite happy to reserve a room before we bought the voucher. Reception ( particularly Jenna ) were very helpful and this first room was great - super views, a good size, huge bed, very well decorated, a nice big bathroom with Whirlpool bath and shower, bathrobes, homemade biscuits and real coffee bags - perhaps the only improvement for us would have been an iron rather than the rather useless trouser press. There are extensive and well kept gardens and lawns with views to the lake and hills. Food was excellent - there was a great choice for breakfast that was cooked to order and a concise but well chosen and great quality evening menu ( with additional dishes on a tasting menu offered to guests staying for several days )waiting staff were attentive and friendly. The icing on the cake for us was free use of the swimming pool and spa facilities at the Old England Hotel in Bowness that was around 15 minutes walk away - these were superb and kept us well entertained when the weather was not brilliant. The only slightly disappointing part of the stay was that whilst we were there we decided to stay an extra day. Reception did well to organise this but the only room available was very basic in comparison. It was fairly small and dark, the bathroom was pretty basic and there there were no views. It was clean and well decorated but certainly lacked any wow factor.
