A short one night away with my boyfriend, sister and brother-in-law for the men in our lives birthday. Stayed in room 7 which was adequate for two. Had large bathroom with bath and overhead shower. The radiator in bathroom was too close too toilet and boiling hot. So watch your knees don't get burnt!! I found a used nail file... More

As we have a dog, we have to choose carefully where we stay and the choice can be a little limited. We stayed over the weekend at the Lamplighter, James gave us a warm welcome and the staff were really friendly and helpful during our stay, really made us (and the dog) feel welcome. The room was nice, very neat... More

Our room was on the first floor, with windows on to the car park and the main street. The bed was huge and comfortable, but the room itself, while clean and well serviced, had seen better days. The floorboards felt distinctly weak in one place, and one of the window blinds broke the first time we used it. Also the... More

This was our second visit to the Lamplighter. We had a standard room, the bed was enormous and extremely comfortable. The decor is good, the corridors had recently painted. Breakfast was lovely, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only comments we would make is that the furniture in the room is a bit jaded and could do with... More

We have been to the Lamplighter a few times now on visits to the lakes & it never fails to impress with it's amazing food! So on this our most recent visit words fail me. Of course it lives up to its usual fabulous food however our waiters Paul & Geoff were simply brilliant! Professional yet friendly informative about the... More

We stayed for 2 nights using a living social voucher. We upgraded the room in advance and requested an extra bed for our toddler which wasn't ready upon arrival. The staff however were extremely friendly and did their best to resolve the issue quickly. Our room was recently decorated and had a lovely large bathroom. The communal corridors etc are... More

Stayed here last weekend for 2 nights using a living social deal voucher. Prior to our arrival we rang the hotel and requested an upgrade to a deluxe room for an extra £10.00 per night. Check in was done extremely efficiently although the small reception area was unmanned but a press of the bell and we were attended to quickly... More

Booked through an online voucher deal. Having looked at tripadvisor before buying voucher I was disappointed when we arrived. It looked less grand than the pictures implied. Parts of the entrance looked lovely but the hallway to the upper rooms looked tired with one landing even being lit by a table lamp set on the floor. Our room was classed... More
