We stayed here for 3 days and found the location perfect to see lake windermere and coniston. There are plenty of walks available and sights to see. The hotel was clean and beautifully decorated. Lesley is clearly an excellent interior designer. The breakfast was well cooked and we thoroughly enjoyed the banter with Lesley. We ate in the restaurant twice... More

We ate here recently, and would not go back in a hurry, the service was the worst we have ever experienced anywhere. After 45 minutes our starters hadn't arrived and it wasn't even busy, a table of four people were so fed up waiting that they walked out, I had to go to the bar and ask where our starters... More

A lovely welcome on arrival. The staff, Chloe, Jade, Helen, and chef (sorry didn't get his name) were all very friendly, and excellent in the way they catered for us. The food was delicious and very well presented. Great beers...very important!! The room was very comfortable, and well appointed. We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

Food and staff were excellent, need a car as it's in the middle of nowhere. Major issues with cleaning stayed for three nights and towels never changed and bathroom not cleaned once. Very thin walls so was noisy at night and no heating as it was cold at night.

The food is fairly cheap but cheerful, the kids mash wasn't the best and the garlic mushrooms very greasy . Nice enough burger though. The lady serving us Debbie was fantastic and was great with our 2 children. There is a outdoor kids play area but unfortunately it was raining. It is Cumbria after all

This is ideally situated to discover south lakes and Kendal. Rooms are well equipped and clean. Plenty of choice at breakfast, which was delicious and plentiful. The bar/restaurant is very relaxed. Had a lovely evening playing pool and darts. Would recommend a stay here, and would come back
