I would describe the hotel as good overall, not very good, but it could be with a little more attention to detail and improved maintenance. The bar area is very comfortable with a good selection of beers at reasonable prices and the restaurant area is good with views of the grounds. The food was very good at dinner and breakfast...

Couldn't find any negatives at all. Found the negative reviews a bit puzzling, we had a really good time. The room was great the spa the food all were lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back and would recommend it

Me and my partner first stayed at this hotel three years ago, we had amazing service from the moment we walked through the door which carried on for the remainder of our stay. We now have a daughter and took her to this hotel last March, she has quite a few food allergies which the staff had no problems accommodating.... More

My husband surprised me with a 2 night stay with breakfast and dinner on the first night. Well from the moment we arrived the staff at reception couldn't of been nicer allowing us to check in early. The facilities in the pool/gym area are great and it's only a five minute drive from lake Windermere. The food was excellent and... More

Just returned as a family of four for a weekend break. For the money paid for this hotel we thought it was good value for money. Family room (room 2) was modern, well decorated, spacious and clean. Reception area was welcoming, with log fire burning in the evening. Breakfast was good, only minor issue was it could of been hotter.... More

This 3 star hotel on the Southern edge of the Lakes has lots of Groupon type deals and is excellent value for money. Our room was no 12. A great 4 poster bed, plenty of space and a good view across the duck pond. At the price it was a bargain and we got to take our 2 dogs!

This the second year we have been to the party night. We stayed Friday & Saturday and I can recommend it. Wayne and staff went out of their way to make it a great stay. We are looking forward to next year.
