We stayed at the Castle Inn whilst on a short break in the Lake District. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the facilities good. We had dinner in the bar one evening which was a little less formal than the restaurant (which did look good) and had a lovely meal. We did not have breakfast in the hotel as... More

My fiancée and I decided on a last minute weekend in the Lakes. We found this hotel online and it looked very nice. The hotel was actually a bit shabby in places. The room was nice although a bit dated and although we booked a double room it turned out the beds were 2 singles pushed together which wasn't very... More

Lovely hotel, however you do need to take the car on every outing as it's a bit out of the way, our suite was lovely, overlooking the gardens, and spotlessly clean, the only downside was that the pillows were rather hard, not giving a great nights rest, the pool was very nice, although the shower areas were a bit dated...

This hotel is about 10 min drive North of Keswick, a fantastic part of the Lakes. The family room we were given was big with a big bathroom and lounge area, and it was all clean and very well presented. The hotel has a gym and good size swimming pool with sauna and steam room, though we were disappointed to... More

I always stay at BW hotels for business, and generally am more than satisfied when it comes to value for money, service etc. On this occasion we were on a family holiday and to my disappointment, this hotel certainly was not value for money (in fact probably shouldn't be 4star rated) and the service in both the bar and at...

We stayed for a weekend in October 2013 and booked a room with a four poster bed, which was a large well-appointed room with a separate seating area. It was late when we arrived on the Friday evening so ate in the bar and on the Saturday we ate on the main restaurant, but on both evenings, the food and... More

Just had two nights here and splashed out on a suite. We were allocated room 32 which was a corner room with views of the garden and hills, dressing area, lounge area, kingsize bed, free standing bath and loads of space. The staff were all lovely, food in the bar was very good and the pool was spotless. I enjoyed... More

Stayed here for 2 nights but the hotel felt very much catered towards the older couples. Our room was ok but on the ground floor in the corner (room 4) so felt a bit dark & cold & also had no view out the windows whatsoever. We had a few drinks in the bar near reception but noticed there was... More
