Disappointing arrival. No signs for where the initial reception was held for drinks outside so half of the guests were at the wrong end of the hotel and had to trail past bedrooms to get to the right place. Once we moved inside it was much better, attentive staff lovely function room. Initially should have had more staff on the... More

Searched online for a Spa Hotel in the Lake District and opted for this one. As I searched for B&B i didn't notice the NO JEANS in the restaurant note on the dinning page! Bottom line is, this spoilt the trip as we couldn't use the restaurant as I only had dark jeans and hiking gear with me (I had... More

Was taken for 'afternoon tea' Saturday 23rd august by my fiancé with my future in laws also. The hotel is set in the most stunning location and it was a beautiful sunny day. The service was outstanding and we were not rushed in anyway. He waiters were exceptional. The selection of sandwiches, cakes and biscuits was lovely together with the... More

Nothing was too much trouble for the very efficient, professional and most importantly, friendly members of staff. Accommodation for all members of the party was exceptional, lovely rooms with lots of added touches to make our stay extra special. The food was delicious all weekend... More

We booked a 3 night DBB break and had a room in the main house overlooking the park. The room was very large with a lovely view. Our evening meals were in the Lake View restaurant and far exceeded our expectations, we were unable to fault the food. The waiters in particular were excellent, very friendly but professional. The hotel... More

Just returned from a Indulgance Spa Weekend break with 3 friends. It was a lovely relaxing weekend with good treatments, fab food and wonderful staff. We had booked Spa Rooms, one of which was on the ground floor which was lovely as we had a patio where we sat out on Friday afternoon drinking Prosceco. If the weekend weather had... More

Myself and my family had lunch here for the second time and once again were very impressed. It costs just £20 for three courses which are easily worth a lot more than this. Presentation is fantastic and the service is exceptional. Both times we have had our own waiter who caters to our needs and is very friendly. I couldn't... More

Very mean portion of smoked salmon, followed by over-cooked roast beef which was served on a cold plate and was only luke warm when it arrived. I had to ask twice for extra gravy and even then only a small amount was supplied. I thought the gravy might warm my dinner up but even the gravy wasn't hot. Only one... More
