“Country hotel or boarding house??”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Received an effusive b-&-b type welcome which soured quickly when we we were told that having a bottle of wine chilled ( not for use with a meal, I might add ) would cost the equivalent of the lowest-priced bottle on the wine list. A really very churlish reaction ... A tired, rabbit-warren of a place, though pleasing bedroom and good dining room. We will not return.

Stayed July 2012, travelled as a couple

Yours sincerely,

I visited last week with 5 friends and we had a fantastic weekend; The staff, food, wine and afternoon tea were all great. Everyone is so friendly and helpful which made it all the more relaxing. It was lovely to see young peple ther having a good time and hen parties enjoyikgn the fabulous afternoon tea.The only apology is toanyone staying as the party I was with were a little noisy playing cards and games after dinner but even that the owners accomodated! The home made yoghurt and cakes were fab. We will be back. Thankyou Lynne

for the price of bed and breakfast me and my husband expected alot more for our money although staff friendly and hotel clean it seemed more like a b&b than a hotel the superior room is smaller than it appears on the pictures. When we arrived back after an evening out there was no one around at 11pm to ask for a coffee or beer! I feel this hotel is for the elderly .

Hmm, this did feel to me (at the age of 41) like I’d stumbled into an old folks home. I guess the hotels around Bowness do tend to cater more to the older generation (I don’t normally stay around here but it was convenient for the car hire), but I’d say the average age must have been 60s at least. That said, the welcome was warm (did I detect a bit of surprise at our relatively tender age?) and the hotel was beautifully furnished.

I was a bit disappointed that there was no bar to sit in – we got there late and fancied sitting down somewhere with some wine. They did have a range of drinks but we didn’t really want to sit in the public areas so we took them to our room.

The view in the morning was absolutely superb – there was Windermere in all its glory. The gardens were really picturesque, with a splash of red and a host of golden daffodils (to get all Wordsworth). I was excited to discover they had a nearly full-sized croquet lawn. As an aficionado it was a shame to see one of the balls (red if you’re interested) was missing but we had a fun game.

Dear tonysony,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.
I am so sorry about the croquet set being a ball short, it will be replaced ASAP.
We do have a fully stocked dispense bar and serve any drinks to you in lounges, I am sorry you did not enjoy our cosy lounges as you would a public bar.
We are delighted that you liked the refurbishment that has taken place and we are very lucky to have a fantastic gardener who cares for our beautiful grounds.
With kind regards,
Caroline

I think the weather was fantastic timing on your part as we now have a Lakeland drizzle (which is well needed).

this was the best short break we have ever had. The service was first class, the food was delicous and the room was fantastic. after a very stressful week this break refuelled our batteries and even the cumbrian rain could not dampen our enjoyment. thank you so much.
