My boyfriend and I decided on our weekend getaway here. We were greeted by James who was lovely and informative. We were shown to our room (room 3) which was very spacious, the en-suite was small and compact which I had no problem with. It was very clean and I was very satisfied with everything. I will definitely be recommending... More

Super location and warm welcome by a mixture of mature and youngersters but good service. Menu limited and requires ordering 24-48 hours in advance again super quality although priced on the higher side well worth it excellent lounge/dining room plenty of space even for a party of 16! Gents toilets need urgent attention to match the quality of the surroundings.

My partner and I recently stayed at the Lamplighter for the weekend and were both very impressed. We received a very warm and professional welcome from the manager and felt right at home. The room was clean, spacious and provided all of the necessary amenities. I would certainly recommend this hotel if you're staying in the Lakes. Couldn't ask for... More

The room was lovely and clean, well equipped and comfy with plenty of room for our travel cot. The breakfast were very tasty and... More

Stayed here with my husband for the weekend with our dog Wilma. As soon as we walked in we received a warm friendly welcome. We stayed in room 7 which suited us perfectly and was very clean. They had put a bowl of water in the room for the dog plus a dog biscuit-lovely touch. At breakfast they have a... More

Enjoyed a lovely weekend in the Lakes and experienced excellent hospitality from the team at the Lamplighter Dining Rooms. The menu looks deceptively simple and one could be forgiven for thinking that they offer pub grub only. Don't be deceived - the food is delicious and is certainly NOT pub grub. The ingredients were of high quality and each of... More

My partner Anne and I stayed at the Lamplighter from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd May and were impressed on several levels - so much so that we felt compelled to write a review. Warmly welcomed by James and shown to our room which was large and very comfortable. The windows in our room (no 8) are single glazed so... More

We booked very last minute through Booking.com as we were travelling back down South from a wedding. As a hotelier myself I thought, based on the Booking.com review score of 8.3, it would be a good enough hotel. On arrival there was a lady filling in a registration card and a gent in black came through and spoke to her... More
