Disappointing is not strong enough to describe our experience of lunchtime service and quality of food. We have previously called on several occasions after a long walk for a lunchtime bar snack and had good service and excellent food.......today was certainly the exception!!! We chose our meals which comprised of 3 beef baguettes with chips and a prawn baguette with... More

Appalling Sunday lunch for £10.95. Minimal vegetables and one small slice of beef that could neither be cut or eaten. Reported our dissatisfacton immediately but received no response. Waited 20 minutes then ate the vegetables. We were eventually told that because we had eaten the vegetables and they were holding my credit card that I had no option other than... More

What an appalling place. This shabby, dirty hotel was a disgrace. We stayed for two nights last week. The bed was very uncomfortable, the bathroom (although a good size) and bedroom were dirty, the sheets didn't cover the mattress and the heating was limited to one hour only a day. Beautiful location is the only good thing to say about... More

We have just eaten at the Sun Pub. Having ordered 3 Sunday beef roasts and 1 cheeseburger off the Specials board the meals arrived. All roasts had one slice of beef that had clearly been precut a long time previously and was so tough it was inedible. Steak knives might have made it but the standard cutlery couldn't get through...

I stayed here with my father for one night whilst walking the Cumbria Way. We stayed in room number 4, and it was excellent. The bathroom is particularly large and spacious. We ate at the Sun in the evening, and then had breakfast the following morning. The evening meal was good value. The breakfast was generous, with a very good-sized... More

Stayed here for a weekend to sample The Lakes. Pretty standard, a little rough around the edges but the beds are the most comfortable I've slept in. A great place to stay to experience what The Lakes have to offer, but don't expect too much.

Stayed here on a weekend away with the OH who dragged me up some hills out back. It was a lovely hotel, fantasic food (can thoroughly recommend the steak and ale pie!!). The rooms were well appointed with amble sized bathrooms! My only two complaints are that the pipes are quite noisy and the barstaff poured too many drinks down... More

We ate here on the last day of our holiday and to be honest wish we hadn't! We thought the place look lovely and wanted to try it.... nobody was inside (we should of taken the hint) The food was average, too expensive for what it was. My Mum ordered a vegetarian meal, at the end of it she saw... More

Hotel of 2 halves whilst I agree with other reviewers to some degree with so what about the peeling wallpaper, skirting boards and window frames which need painting etc when you have a really comfortable clean king size bed and massive bath and plenty of hot water I can’t help feeling this hotel is letting itself down by skimping on...
