We arrived at the entrance of the Lodore Falls Hotel (a rather grim looking building) situated in the heart of the Lake District near Keswick, to find that there were only five car parking spaces there, which were all taken. That necessitated us having to park the car quickly, then go into Reception to see where the 'proper' car park was, since there were no signs indicating its whereabouts. Irritating start. Then we parked and went into the hotel, where the Reception dealt with us efficiently, but not with much warmth. However, after a splendid dinner that evening and excellent service from the (mainly Eastern European) staff, the hotel was starting to grow on us. We were there three days and didn't have the best of weather, but we enjoyed our stay. I thought the room was a bit small and rather tired, decoratively, although my wife felt it was fine. It was perfectly clean and tidy. There was no fridge in the room and no air conditioning, so we were quite lucky the weather wasn't too hot. Finally, the clincher - Breakfast was made fresh by a chef and was great.
