Stayed here 20/8/14. An excellent location for the Country Walks we had planned. Lovely room situated in the annexe cottages. Stayed in room 101. Didn't have to worry about parking as there is a huge car park situated nearby & the hotel take your car reg. & inform the pay & display owners that you are a guest. We ate... More

The hotel is very well styled but now minor bits and pieces need upkeep and a little more thought. (Loose loo roll holder, chips to furniture, touch up of paint.) The shower is less than useless and the pillows are cheap and nasty. Can't see in mirror when seated to dry hair? Room 7 was very noisy...above the kitchens, when... More

The hotel is situated in the heart of Hawkshead. We were greeted at reception and shown to our room. The room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was very modern and spotlessly clean with good quality towels and products. We had an evening meal which was wonderful the menu had a good variety and plates that were been served looked... More

I was really looking forward to our stay at the Queens Head Inn. The pictures on the website and feedback on trip adviser all looked great! The village of Hawkshead is small but lovely with nice little shops to visit. Due to having read previous comments online, we were aware that we had to leave the car in the public... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night on our way up to Edinburgh. After a slightly chaotic start (the car park is a little way away from the hotel and the reception is next to the bar) we were shown to our room (102) which was very tastefully decorated and clean. We sat at the bar for a... More

We had a really nice stay at this inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the adjacent property which is down the lane opposite the inn. We had a lovely room and shower room decorated to a really high standard. We ate in the inn and had a lovely dinner. Breakfast was very simple but very... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It isn't easy to get too but well worth the visit. The staff are both attentive and eager to make you're stay as pleasant as possible. Food was served quickly and of excellent quality despite the restaurant being very busy. The breakfast was also lovely and excellent service. The room was a... More

We stayed for two nights at The Queens Head and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We ate there both evenings and the food was delicious. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. We had a drink in all 4 pubs in the village and both agreed that we had chosen the best one to stay in. Incidentally we stayed in... More

We booked to stay at the Queens Head at short notice when we managed to grab ourselves an overnight break away from our 5 children. We wanted to find somewhere we could relax & unwind somewhere peaceful. I emailed the hotel before arrival to ask if we could have a slightly later check out & explained we wanted to make... More

Having looked at many hotels, we chose this one for our anniversary weekend, even tho it was dearer than some others, we decided to treat ourselves as it was pretty & we had never stayed in a place like this. Owing to horrendous traffic, we arrived hot & exhausted, much later than planned at 8.45pm after travelling for nearly 8hrs,... More

Hi carolAnn Thank you for posting your review on both late rooms and here on TA. The whole team here are disappointed that your experience here was anything other than excellent. When guests arrive late after a bad journey, it often seems to affect a guests perception and mood for the rest of their stay. Sadly there is not much... More
