We felt we'd made the right choice within minutes of walking into the Regent. Friendly, helpful staff at reception immediately made us feel very welcome and once we got to the room the positive impressions continued. Comfortable bed, lovely modern shower and bathroom, hospitality tray and best of all the peace and tranquility of the Lake District was evident just... More

Easy to get to all the sights from this location. We booked on a recommendation from our daughter who stayed there in March. I like the fact that the Manager responses... More

On entering the Regent, the reception area and bar was lovely, modern and clean (large car park too). We were given keys to room 15 and offered help with luggage as it was on the second floor and there is no lift. First impression was of disappointment as the room was very small. We asked for an alternative but no... More

We had a fantastic week in the Lake District, admittedly helped by the glorious weather, but our choice of hotel was a significant part of the success of our holiday. We loved our room (44) it was clean, spacious and well equipped and there was always plenty of hot water to soothe those muscles after a long walk. Great to... More

Thank you for your review a bit surprised by your comments our staff have wonderful reviews and our bar was only re-furbished fairly recently, as for being pricy we are extremely competitive with similar standards of hotels in the area and offer some great packages. Andrew Hewitt More
