I booked this hotel using an online voucher and stayed for 2 nights. On arriving at the hotel I thought it looked quite pleasant with the ducks in the pond and the apple trees and dahlias in the courtyard. Just inside there was an old fashioned comfortable room with large settees, just right for reading your papers or having a... More

We received a two night stay as a present and had a fabulous time. The staff were friendly and approachable, upgrading us to a four poster room as the hotel was so busy. The food was fantastic and excellent value. The spa was an added bonus and well organized, clean and modern. The surroundings are beautiful. I would highly recommend... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very clean comfortable hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Wayne the manager does an excellent fun quiz night. This is definitely the hotel I will always use when going to the lake district. Excellent value for money.

We stayed at here in August 2015. Our stay was fantastic! All of the staff members were very friendly, especially the waiting staff. The swimming pool and leisure facilities were clean and very useable. The grounds create a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere and the views from the restaurant were lovely. Our room (27) was a good size, although in places... More

The hotel is old fashioned but nothing looks out of place and it suits the style of hotel and location. The meal which we had included in the price was 3 courses and I couldn't find anything wrong! Great place for friends to get together and have a laugh for a weekend if your spending time in the local surroundings... More
