We stayed for two nights over Easter weekend and had a very nice time. The grounds are lovely and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is quite traditional on the inside and clean. Our room was a corner room with gorgeous views of the lake and hills and very comfortable large bed. The heating was on quite... More

My husband and I booked via woucher. We should have stayed 2 nights but unfortunately the hotel could only accommodate us for 1 night due to a wedding function. Very disappointed as would have enjoyed staying another night. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Plenty of wardrobe space and draws. There...

Excellent views over the lake, the Coniston Launch even picks you up from the Jetty at the end of the garden. Well worth going on trip on Lake. Excellent staff, couldn't have been more helpful. Weather was good, which made this a fabulous break.
