After reading the reviews and looking over the pictures of the rooms when booking, I was really disappointed with the room. The pictures must have been taken about 5 years ago because the room is full of damp, dust, dirt and a very strange smell. After returning after a busy day at the lakes and fancied a shower shame I... More

My girlfriend and I booked last minute for the bank holiday weekend. We were greeted by a warm atmosphere and enjoyed local ales, HUGE portions in the restaurant and a comfy stay. We will certainly be staying again and recommending to friends. Thanks

We stayed at the B and B part to the Elleray for three nights. Our room was very good for the price we paid. It could benefit from a slight make over in some areas. The parking could be an issue due to circumstances outside of their control whereby two out of three of the rooms at the B and... More

The rooms were quaint and charming as well as clean and comfortable and the service definitely came with a smile. Staff were keen to be as welcoming and helpful as possible. This extended to the manager posting back my phone charger which I... More

The hotel is nicely placed on a hill that allows for a nice stroll down to the lake through the town centres. The rooms are spacious, clean and have massive bathrooms. While spacious it feels also very cosy, warm, and stylish. The bed is very comfortable too. The staff are very nice and helpful and the food in the restaurant... More

To start, it is very well located and easy to get to from the train station, with the town centre within a minutes walk. The room in itself, although you could smell fresh paint, does look a bit new. However it could do with a a small table to keep things on. The mirror in the bathroom is quite high.... More
