We had booked to stay here via Groupon as there was a good deal on - two night stay, breakfast included and one evening three course meal. I rang to book and paid an extra £40.00 to stay on the Saturday (which was fine), and then we decided we'd upgrade the room for an additional £40.00 for a Jacuzzi bath.... More

This is quite near to Bowness on Windermere which is my favourite place in the lakes.I went with my daughter and my grandson. Although this hotel is not "child friendly" in the typical way we were made most welcome. It has lovely gardens and ducks that sit on the window ledges of the restaurant!! The staff were exceptional.
