We stayed for 3 days at the Rothay Garth and had a really pleasant stay, the Family are warm and friendly, helpful when needed, cooked breakfast was piping hot using all locally sourced produce, the accomodation is warm and comfortable and ideally located, for walking,hiking or just exploring the lakes and shops as we did...book with confidence, relax and enjoy..
