Friendly staff and efficient service. We stayed in the Martindale room and had a lovely view of the fell and the lake we were able to watch the spectacular changes from full sun to cloud and the contrast from early morning to evening. The room was nicely furnished and big enough to sit and read or catch up on the... More

We have recenlty returned from three days break. Staff were all friendly but not uncomfortably pushy or pretentious. The superior room was very excellent with unbeatable bathroom facilities. We did try the fine dining which was artistically plated with innovative tastes and textures but perhaps not for individuals with large appetites. For those with a more down to earth palette...

We stayed here for two nights. It's a wonderful country house hotel with excellent service, old style. It stands in extensive grounds overlooking Ullswater, but you'll need a car whilst you are there. The views from the hotel are amazing. The staff were warm and friendly and very attentive. We opted for a mini de-luxe room which have us a... More

Our 2 night stay was fantastic. It's 10 years since we were last here and, if anything, it was even better than before. Our 'usual' room was beautiful and the staff were brilliant.
