A warm, family welcome greeted us & our beloved terrier. We were part of a large family booking but also treated as individuals. The lounge bar is divided & doubled as a reception. At times this caused minor delays but nothing patience couldn't handle. The large oak staircase ascends to 2 floors of various rooms. There is also a lift... More

Rooms clean with all the necessary equipment. Ensuite on the small size, shower cubicle could have been cleaner. Brilliant views of the lake and the hills and great walk down to the pier. Lovely restaurant and lounge/bar areas. Carpets a bit of a problem in the hall parts of the stairs, a trip hazard, especially for the elderly. Allow dogs... More

I rarely give negative reviews, always trying to find the positives in places we stay and eat. I'm very aware of the damage to a business a carelessly written negative review can cause, sometimes with no grounding. A review is simply an opinion. However, I feel the need to mention the afternoon tea we had yesterday at the Waterhead. This... More

This is in a great setting at the head of Consiton Water and the hotel is lovely with great views from the rooms. A stroll along to the pier, which some lake ferries stop at, is a must! The dinner was excellent and the staff very good, but breakfast was a let down in terms of service and some of... More

We visited here last week as a family, having specifically booked the hotel as being dog friendly. On arrival our canine chums and indeed ourselves were disappointed to find they were only allowed in reception area and bedrooms. We had been looking forward to chilling out in the bar area after a day’s walking. Our party had booked two rooms,... More

Stayed for 2 nights and what a wonderful hotel this is. I couldn't fault anything with this place. The room, the view and the food was 1st class. We took our dog for an extra £10 per night and I think he enjoyed the stay more than us. The staff were very professional, friendly and I wiould definitely recommend this... More

We initially booked for the junior suit as the description made it out to have nice view of the mountains and a living room. Reality is the living room is tiny and the view is of a road. Sure you can just see the mountains but your view is a road. We moved rooms on our next night to one... More
