This hotel is beautifully situated with attractive grounds leading down to the lake. There are several walks that can be taken from the hotel including one from the road at the front which gives way to a track eventually leading into Keswick. we had a room (104) over looking the garden and glimpse of the lake. It was pleasantly furnished and had adequate seating to allow relaxation in the room but it was a little cramped and the bed was a small double. Similarly
the bathroom which just accommodated a bath with shower over, wash basin and toilet. To reach the room there were around six steps in the corridor outside which had to be negotiated with luggage on arrival and departure. The reception staff were helpful and friendly, but the dining room staff possibly because of language were rather 'automated'- Efficient but impersonal. The food was nothing particularly special but not bad. The dining room is quite large and can easily accommodate the coach parties that seem to favour the hotel quite frequently. There are adequate public rooms including a small lounge where there is WiFi reception and a nice sun lounge leading out to garden seating in good weather. Ducks seem attracted to the garden.
