Stayed two nights in October on a voucher deal and feel that it was well worth the money. The hotel has an interesting history and the first impression we got on arrival was that we walking into a farmhouse belonging to a very wealthy landowner. Our reception was warm and friendly. The room although not large was clean and the... More

Thanks for your nice review. We appreciate your comments about our staff and your 4-star rating. We normally cook all red meat to medium (unless otherwise requested) and we're sorry this was not the case for you. Judging by the excellent comments we normally receive (on here and at the hotel) it isn't usually a problem, but we'll ensure that... More

I would have given this a 3.5 if I was able and the main reason I only gave a 3 was due to the overall tiredness of the building and decor which in our opinion are in need of updating in a number of areas, although everywhere seemed pretty clean and tidy. We booked using a Travelzoo deal and stayed... More

Food10/10 Service10/10 Room 8/10 A Pleasant place to stay out in the country and well situated for the rest of the lakes.My only comment on the hotel is that the room we stayed in (22) could do with freshening of the paintwork, but thats nitpicking really.

We were all disappointed to read this review and it was a shame you didn't enjoy your stay. We always allocate rooms on a first-come first-serve basis, regardless of the offer. We have a variety of rooms available, some larger than others featuring different views, etc. We have set about making the issues you've raised right, so thanks for raising... More

Stayed 2 nights on a Wowcher deal which included a 3 course meal and breakfast both mornings. Food was very nice and all the staff provided a warm welcome and great service. Excellent location with lovely gardens (and lots of ducks) and handy for venturing further afield such as Windermere, Kendal and Keswick. Room and bathroom were clean, if a... More

Thank you for your lovely review and stay. We really appreciate your comments about our food, staff and leisure amenities. We're also pleased our WiFi allowed you to maintain contact to the outside world whilst you stayed; although sometimes being cut off provides for perfect relaxation! Thanks again and hopefully we will see you again. More

From the moment we entered the hotel we were greeted with friendliness and smiles and this remained so throughout our stay. Beautiful setting, exceptional food, if there were any faults they were very minor and more than compensated for by the staff's helpfulness and friendliness.

My wife and I recently spent two nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Accommodation was first class as was the food. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful or efficient.
