A British couple in our 50’s, we found the following:
Pros – Centrally located and close to lake with great lake views from rooms facing it and nice marketplace views from those which don’t. Lift to all floors so no access issues. Continental breakfast good with nice choice including smoked salmon. Dining room is stylish with a good view of the lake or, weather permitting, eat on the terrace. Reception helpful and speak good English.
Cons – Car parking during the day is a nightmare, very limited parking in front of hotel and no space in underground garage whilst we were there. Our small bedroom and bathroom were a 1970’s throwback with tired decoration and soft furnishings . Corridors to rooms gloomy with carpeted walls !
Other – This hotel seems to be trading on its position and despite healthy room rates has not in our (standard room) experience invested in comfortable rooms for guests. The resort is a bit like Bowness –on- Windermere in terms of feel and facilities – busy, with average restaurants and (like the hotel) tired in places and in need of some investment from the revenue it enjoys, but there’s no denying its popularity. Personally, not the sort of place I would like to spend more than a couple of days in and due to its shortcomings I would not re-visit the hotel.
