This hotel sits it a lovely location and has amazing views from its garden and rooms - well at least the room I had. The rooms were nice and tidy and sufficiently sized for me although the space round the bed may have been a bit cramp if two adults were getting ready at the same time. Again the ensuite... More

We stayed at the Roundthorn mid week for 1 night and found the whole experience fantastic, delightful helpful staff (n particular the receptionist and the waiter at dinner) good food and a lovely room with a great view over the Cumberland mountains (rm 6) if it's a relaxing stay you're after then look no further. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
