An awesome getaway for the city-dwellers. Lake district is a beautiful place and staying at Overwater Hall makes the trip a perfect one.
The staffs were already expecting us at the door when we arrived. We were showed immediately to our rooms, no administrative check-in procedures or waiting. We were also brought to see a few rooms and given the choice to decide which room we like! All rooms are furnished in their unique ways and splendid. Food served at the restaurant was excellent - very delicious and satisfying.
Service was also personalised and great. On our second night, we went back to the hotel late after watching a play at the Theatre by the Lake and the restaurant was already closed. We were planning to settle for some biscuits in our room and to our surprise, the phone rang and we were asked if we would like some omelettes from the kitchen. Thanks for filling our stomach with warm yummy omelettes on a cold hungry and late night!
We were totally embraced in serenity here. It was quiet, peaceful and every morning we wake up to the sounds of nature. The hotel also has a trail to explore the forest/ garden where we caught a glimpse of the red squirrels.
Overall, the hotel gave us an unforgettable and lovely experience - will strongly recommend anyone to stay here. You won't regret it! :)
