I booked two nights recently to celebrate my birthday. We paid extra for one of the larger rooms and it was well worth it to have the view of the Lake and the extra space. The package was dinner, bed and breakfast and everything was excellent. The evening meals were very good as was the breakfast. We also had cream teas with the hotel's home made scones and jam. I would certainly go again and enjoyed the hotel, the experience, walking in the grounds and the general sights.

We used this hotel for a special birthday for my wife. I secretly invited 4 couples and the hotel staff were most helpful in arranging all the detail in confidence. Without exception the staff were delightful. The site of this hotel would be hard to beat on Windermere , with its own private landing stage and access to the lake. The driveway to the Georgian mansion delivers guests to the back of the Hotel, the impressive front being left to offer wonderful views of the gardens and lake.
Several of the public rooms face the lake and the breakfast/dining room offers restful views of the lawns.
Cream tea is a must during your stay excellent value and beautifully served by professional and friendly staff. The evening meal was outstanding , freshly cooked and served for us in a private room. The Chef obviously takes a pride in his craft. Our rooms were spacious, some would say luxurious. We were given every help in planning our 3 day stay locally which despite some inclement weather was a success. A pool would have been an advantage and no sky sports on TV. Wifi signal variable but free.
During our stay we were directed to Windermere Golf Club where we had a joint indoor 2 hour golf lesson from Simon Edwards the local professional . It was entertaining and he was able to appeal to all standards of players . This added value to our trip.
A very enjoyable way to pamper yourself for a few days.

We decided to take a trip up to the lakes for Easter and Storrs Hall had an offer on with Secret Escapes, so we decided to give it a try, Tripadvisor reviews were good and the price seemed reasonable.

We arrived very early 10:30 am (we were going to L'enclume for lunch) we were greeted at the reception desk with a friendly smile and were very surprised to find our room was ready, The room was clean and very large with a truly comfortable kingsize bed.

After Lunch we returned and had a walk around the grounds, the hotel building is very impressive the grounds are beautiful but these both shrivel to insignificance to the amazing views, this hotel boasts one of the best positions anywhere in the world.

We are both foodies but after a filling lunch we decided to just have something from the bar menu in the evening, this was a magnificent steak sandwich and I decided to have one of the desserts, I can honestly say this was one of my highlights, a rhubarb parfait that was better to look at and eat than both desserts I was served at the Michelin starred restaurant earlier that the day.
After a good nights sleep Breakfast was without doubt exceptional, I had the full English and my wife decided to have the Eggs Benedict, we both agreed this was one of the best breakfasts we have both had.

The only negative I have is that I wish I had made more use of the hotels own restaurant but we will return, I consider this hotel to be fantastic value even at its rack rate.

To the Manager/Owner of Storrs hall, You have a real gem with some of the best staff we have encountered anywhere, all so friendly but none were intrusive, Thank you and we will return.

Room Tip: Make use of the hotel restaurant.

We booked into this hotel at four in the afternoon after checking out of a very poor hotel booked in error.
We were very very lucky.
The hotel is being restored and is very comfortable and extremely well managed. The new chef is excellent and the fine dining menu is truly top class. The breakfast is also very good and cooked fresh to order.
The views over the lake are amazing and as the weather was lovely it was fantastic to have a late afternoon snooze in one of the deck chairs on the lawn. They even provide an alarm in the way of a friendly woodpecker to wake you as the sun sets !
The staff in the hotel are very attentive with even the handyman taking time to say good morning.
Finally if you are lucky enough to stay here make time to talk to Frederick the waiter...he is a truly inspirational character.
Well done to The Stoors hall team

Room Tip: Lake view are well worth the money

My wife treated me to afternoon Tea which was a nice change from the pub!! We've passed Storrs Hall many tines, both on the lake and in the car. The hall is beautiful and set in fab grounds and no wonder it's packed out in the summer months full with weddings.

The afternoon Tea was served with a glass of champagne, a nice selection of dainty sandwiches and sickly sweet puddings oh, and a pot of Tea.

We sat in the small atrium overlooking the gardens and lakes and with the sunshine streaming in made it a lovely afternoon.

Then I went to the pub!!

We stayed here for two nights for a wedding with our one year old. The view from our room overlooking the lake was fantastic and the room itself was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

The staff were so friendly and helpful - they made our stay with a little one so much easier as nothing was too much trouble and they were so quick and efficient even though they were fully booked with the wedding. Can't recommend it highly enough - we'll be back!
