Visited for a 2 night mid week break for some r & r before our baby is born. Booked a last minute deal online which was great value. Expected bargain basement treatment (happens so often when booked under an offer) but was pleased to find we received fabulous service, a great room and sublime food!
We arrived early but the friendly and efficient receptionist made the effort to get our room ready which was much appreciated! Room 32 was spacious and luxurious with a lovely view of the fells.
Staff were courteous and genuinely interested in guests, remembering our names and drinks order each day. Special mention goes to our waiter who managed that difficult balance between friendly and professional and made us feel welcome and looked after.
The food was out of this world, we upgraded to the a la carte for just 10pp extra and it was sooo worth it! As a chef I find that eating out can be tricky as I find myself looking for faults/ improvements but I can honestly say that the quality, choice and execution was stunning.
A great hotel for rest, relaxation and indulgence in a beautiful location, I hope to visit again soon.
