This is our third visit and the best yet. We were given a free upgrade to a Lake View room and it was so much nicer- modern and spacious with a lovely view. There were chocolates waiting for us and the toiletries were 'upgraded' by adding bath crystals (small but appreciated!). Fluffy white towels, lashings of hot water, extra deep bath, bathrobe...all highly prized after a very long but wonderful walk from the doorstep. Evening dinner started with complimentary canapes and after some fizz we went to our window seat in the lake view restaurant (need to request it early) for a really tasty evening dinner - just the right amount of food, vegetables done to perfection and a good range of starters and desserts. Complimentary after dinner coffee (you can ask for latte/hot choc instead) with petit fours was taken in one of the cosy sitting rooms with its own fire. Bed was kingsize and super comfy. Breakfast next morning was a very hearty Cumbrian affair and lasted me until evening dinner! Many of the hotels I have stayed in have been very samey (often the case with boutique hotels and large franchises), this was very old style but with modern conveniences. I agree that the spa isn't a highlight, the astmosphere though is...lots of returning customers enjoying being well taken care of by friendly staff and contentedly sitting around the bar lounge or sitting rooms making conversation with other guests in the evening. Lovely!
