I've eaten at the Queen 's Head on several occasions and have always been really impressed. With that in mind I booked a weekend stay for my husband's birthday treat. The room itself was lovely but unfortunately it was outside the pub and a walk past overflowing bins wasn't the most pleasant. There was also a loud extractor fan near... More

We were very disappointed to hear that you and your husband did not enjoy your stay with us last weekend. It is our aim that all our guests leave with only happy memories. Firstly allow me to apologise about the bins. Although they are emptied several times a week - during busy periods they can fill up very quickly. Following... More

The hotel/pub with rooms was a great contrast with the oldie worldie public areas and smart but comfortable bedrooms. The food and service was excellent served in the busy bar restaurant. There was a great buzz about the place. PS: The Beer was great too! I had a steak on Saturday evening. On the menu the steak was with béarnaise.... More

I booked this hotel for a romantic getaway with my other half. The reviews were good and the pictures looked amazing. On arrival the room we were located was gorgeous, we couldn't fault it...but then the issues started. We ordered a meal in the restaurant which was uncooked, we sent it back and the staff were very apologetic and replaced... More

My Girlfriend booked us in here for a one night stay before heading off again in the morning. The rooms are lovely and decorated to a high standard. However this is what we found. Dirty glasses in room , noise outside window from people talking loudly and slamming doors below our room and had to listen to an extractor fan... More

We stayed 2 nights in one of the cottage rooms and ate in the restaurant the first evening. The room was clean and comfortable with tasteful decor and the en suite shower was excellent. All the staff were friendly and helpful and dinner was delicious. But for a couple of small things we would have given it 5/5 - breakfast... More

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the larger rooms, everything you need is catered for. Rooms are fabulous, and great that you've got shower gel etc already there. Breakfast was delicious, my only gripe is that I had to keep asking for more coffee, maybe a cafetier on each table would be better. Hawkshead is a beautiful little... More

Our room was in the adjacent cottage and we found it cosy,warm, well equipped with modern furnishings. Staff were friendly and the meals were good; little bit pricy but on a par with the rest of the eateries in the area. We stayed two nights and would definitely go back and would ask for the cottage rooms again! We'll worth... More

There is no parking outside the pub but a big main pay & display car park but when you check in they give you a big car park pass so you can leave your car there for free. We was taken to a quirky little room which was lovely. Up the stairs from the bar along some little passages then... More
