Great old pub downstairs, refurbished rooms upstairs! Great combination of old word charm and modern, comfortable rooms with plenty of hot water, wi-fi and flat screen TV, no complaints! The breakfast was amazing! We also ate in the restaurant the night before, great food and very professional service. Was overly heated in the restuant though, so in winter don't overdress... More

We stayed for two nights in the rooms across from the pub the rooms were very nice however our friends had suites in the pub main building that were amazing well worth the extra supplement. We ate both night and the food was very nice, staff were very friendly especially the young man who checked us in. No complaints

Can't recommend it highly enough. Rooms, service, staff, ambiance - this wonderful place has it all. Ate in the restaurant twice and the food was just excellent. What a fairy-tale caliber experience; just the sort of place we dream of all year long and can't wait to get back to the U.K. to visit again and again.

My daughter and I stayed for two days over a weekend. We had a cosy well appointed room with comfortable beds. We had dinner both nights and along with the breakfasts we were very impressed with the variety and quality of the food. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely stay, couldn't fault it at all.... More

We stayed overnight, together with 4 Belgian friends, dining in the restaurant. The accommodation was of high quality and two of our Belgian friends were delighted to have a four poster! The food was very good and the staff who served our meal were charming and good humoured. This was in stark contrast to our experience at lunchtime the same... More

Visited for a rest and refreshments on the weekend- delicious food! Generous portions and really tasty... Also the staff were really friendly and the hotel is set in a great spot to enjoy this lovely area - the weather meant we sat outside but the inside was really gorgeous x would definitely go back

Beautiful old traditional pub in a quaint village. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful decor in the rooms and a 5 star breakfast. What more could you want? I will definitely return and highly recommend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Stayed here for one night while travelling around the Lake District. Nice room and great food, a great location to explore the Lake District. Free parking available in the main car park in Hawkshead. Friendly bar staff and great service.
