I guess you know we stayed in one of the hideaway rooms with our pooches. It was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Every morning they ,would set up a table in a private room in the hotel so we could indulge our pooches for breakfast. The standards of service, facilities and environment was high. Great place to build new... More

Elegant building in a low key way and done up really nicely - lovely location with great views from some rooms and a nice breakfast room (with lovely breakfast). Might go for a larger hotel next time but this was definitely nicer than most B&B places locally and the staff were always very helpful and friendly - very glad we... More

I booked this fairly last minute for a 1 night stay ahead of a mountain walk with an early start. Check in was swift and straightforward. The overall hotel is very pleasant and very conveniently situated with parking which although was a bit crowded when I arrived. The room was clean and spacious enough, however, there was no bath, just... More

We stayed over for one night in the hide away rooms - we also brought our lively cocker spaniel who absolutely loved it. The rooms were modern and clean, the staff were brilliant and gave us good wall trails. We will be returning very soon. The walks right next to the b&b are fab as well and the views are... More

We stayed her for one night this week as a birthday treat for my partner. This was our second stay at the Lake House, as we enjoyed it so much the last time we visited. This time we were in the main house (room 4). The room was spacious and the bed was comfy. The room also has a nice... More

So sorry to see that you were disappointed with room 4. I am a little surprised as we usually have fantastic comments regarding this room, especially for the fantastic lake view. We sincerely do hope that this hasn't put you off any future stay with us. I can only suggest that if you do book with us again then to... More

We took our puppy and were expecting to find rooms that were a little worn given the fact they allow dogs but how wrong was I! The room was very clean, well looked after, brilliantly positioned with access straight outside. Roomy and fresh smelling. The position of the hotel is perfect, the service great and the breakfast was lovely and... More
