Where to begin... First things first, DO NOT STAY HERE! I would honestly have rather slept in my car. Quite how some people think this hotel is worth 5 out of 5 is completely beyond me. I can only assume that they are affiliated with the hotel or still living in the 1940's themselves. It is truly the worst place I have ever stayed in my life.
Upon arrival the alarm bells started ringing as even from the outside the hotel is very run down, with paint falling off, no double glazing etc. Inside it is even worse. I can only describe the smell as a cross between a hospital and an old peoples home. The decor is just as bad, at one point down the corridor which contains a toilet bowl... Seriously, I have no idea what they thought this added but at least it created a welcome distraction and a bit of light relief from the state of the hotel.
The bedrooms were just as bad, the 'double' bed was two singles shoved together and were as lumpy as bad mash potato. We had a Lake View room which was great but most of the time we couldn't see it due to the condensation that was almost constantly on the windows.
I will be writing to the hotel to complain and demand some of my money back. I would much rather stay in a Travelodge or a chain of that ilk as they are a haven by the standard of this joke of a place.
Do yourselves a favour do not stay here, we only did as it was a last minute booking and the only place in Bowness that had rooms. Now we know why!
