This was our third visit to the Borrowdale and as always the service and the welcome one receives from the staff at the hotel is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble whether you are asking the GM for update on the weather or for more Melba Toast in the dinning room from one of the excellent serving team. This is a hotel to relax in, to go for walks and to sit in front of fires with your dog. I believe there were 14 dogs on Christmas Evening and they all got on.
However there is always a fly in the ointment, not everybody likes dogs and although we as dog owners do our best to respect other people who may not share our love for our pets, there is always someone who makes an awful fuss as if it is the end of the world when your pet says hello. "Take that dog away " was a response from rather obnoxious man . Apart from that it was perfect, Good food, comfortable beds , a willing wife and a happy dog. What more could a man want?
