We had a Best Western voucher to use up as part of a birthday present and after trawling through online booking agencies to get the best overall deal I ended up booking direct with the Hotel after quoting the cheapest price from the Best Western website (which was cheaper than the Red Lion's website) and they matched it.

Last minute order enabled to get a B&B price to this very nice hotel. The twin room and en-suite bathroom were very spacious. We had a window to the back of the hotel and its engine but they do keep them quiet during the night. The Lamb Inn has great pub food, though a little expensive. They even agreed to... More

Not good value.The service in The Lamb Inn which is the bar was terrible. My wife and I had to wait 1 hour for our food and when it did arrive it was cold. Our supposedly double room was very small and the bed uncomfortable. The bathroom was tiny and had just enough room for one person to stand in.

Pleasant hotel, good facilities, pool included, which weren't there when we visited in 1994. Nice restaurant area and lounge. Some lovely features. Lovely location within the village close to the village green, shops and not far to walk to the Wordworth attractions, gingerbread house, Nd bus stop for the Lakes tour buses.

The hotel is conveniently in the centre of the village which brings problems with parking (it does not have enough spaces for all its rooms). We stayed two nights and got a space one night and used the public car park (very close and pretty cheap) the other night. Don't let it put you off. The staff were all very... More

We stayed one night on the 9th Oct 2014. The room they gave us was ok but the bathroom was small and it was very difficult to reach the bath taps without first getting into the bath. The evening meal was an experience. We pre-booked a table, only to find that it had been given to another couple. They fitted... More

Food was good They coped well with trying to bring almost 30 meals out at once and get everyone's orders correct - not an... More

We had a good lunch in the somewhat "tired lounge",being careful not to stand on a dog,enjoying a lie down, on the floor.Our room was somewhat small, but fully equipped, the bed comfortable and the bathroom large...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Red Lion on a walking weekend to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Our room was a good size and nicely furnished, everything very clean and comfortable. We loved its two windows (both open so we were never too hot, a major concern for us) with lovely outlook, and how quiet it was. After... More
