Really, really lovely weekend away!! Great place to go for a relaxing Romantic break! The retreat was lovely.. A real home from home and the hot tub was just amazing! The service was great as was the evening meal and breakfast which was delivered to our room! Thanks so much xx I am sure we will be back.

Needed a place within 40 minutes or so of Barrow and found this place. Very welcoming owner, excellent room and en suite facilities - all very stylish. Excellent breakfast too. Great value for money. I'm going back the next time I'm working in the area.

We booked The Knoll for a relaxing getaway and was totally blown away, I thought I had chosen well but not this well. The food is out of this world, stop researching and book this hotel. We will be back for sure.

I stayed here for 2 nights and was happy with my stay. I had a room to the front of decent size, comfy bed and a great nights sleep thanks to the quiet. It was a little chilly when I arrived as the heating doesn't seem to come on until 5pm. Food was good, better on one night than another,... More

Anyone visiting Lakeside should stay here. It is more than just comfortable. Food was excellent (catering for my gluten free diet was no problem whatsoever), bed nice and comfy (in fact better than our own!) and the service is what I can only describe as five star! We were there for a wedding so only spent two nights, but we... More

We were located in room 1 which was very clean and nicely decorated and serviced each day. We were there on a bed and breakfast basis. The choice was excellent and portions were a... More

My partner and I spent 2 nights at The Knoll for her birthday, we booked the suite for a special touch and we weren't disappointed. The room and bathroom were beautiful and spotlessly clean. Jen and her staff are really friendly and will bend over backwards to help out. They carried out all my wee secrets for my partners birthday,... More
