My husband's family is originally from the Lake District. I decided we would go see it for his Father's Day present. I had no clue where anything was. This wasn't far from Oxenholme station. It is in the country and is just a lovely setting. The spring lambs were playing in the field across the road. Part of the hotel... More

Spent one night here to meet friends and for a short business trip. Staff all very friendly and efficient, de luxe room was worth the small extra charge. Two small niggles: 1. No mirror in the bathroom for shaving/putting on make up, we both had to stand awkwardly between toilet and the sink. 2. Lack of fruit choice and some... More

This is the third time I have come to this hotel in 2 years. Some guests have been return visitors for 10+ years! Each time we have had great service. Comfortable rooms, very clean, and good food at the restaurant, although not gastro pub, there is always a good selection, well prepared and attractively presented. The cook even went out... More

6 of went to the restaurant. The hotel was busy and there was a good atmosphere. Service was friendly and timely. The food was well prepared and tasty with doe emphasis on local produce. We felt valued and there was hurried element to the evening despite the place being full. The shrimp starter was simple but good and the fillet... More

This hotel is known to be welcoming to motorcyclists, so I stopped here on the way south at the end of a trip to Scotland. I was surprised to find that the hotel was bigger, and more modern than I had expected, but nicely so. My room was comfortable with excellent lighting (becoming rare these days) and a nice bathroom.... More

A nice hotel with friendly staff. Comfortable, clean rooms. The only thing lacking is air conditioning in the rooms. Nice food in the restaurant, but the service in the bar was very poor. Surprised that dogs aren't allowed considering the location of the hotel.

Came here as a group of 17 attending a local event nearby and on the whole was quite impressed. All the staff on the bar and in the restaurant were pleasant friendly and efficient. The drinks are what you expect in a hotel/bar these days beer £3.50/pint my wife's large white wine £5.30. We had all pre ordered and were... More

We stayed for 2 nights for our anniversary (we stayed here 30 years ago too on our way to our honeymoon in Scotland!) and had a lovely relaxing break. The room was large and light and very clean. We had dinner on both nights and the food and service were excellent. Breakfast was also good. We will definitely stay here... More

My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of June on our way back from the Scottish Highlands. It was a convenient place to stop being just over half way home and very close to the motorway. In fact it is just a mile from junction 36 of the M6 and set in a quiet country village. If you... More
