Just been up for 5 days, very relaxing and felt well looked after as always. The management team are excellent and always make you feel welcome. The rooms are great, try the Feature Rooms or Luxury rooms as they come with their own little electric fires (in case it's a bit chilly). Rooms 14, 11, 10 are connected on a... More

We stayed here just one night but would have liked to have stayed longer. A lovely quiet location with extensive walks from the hotel. Our room was delightful. The staff were really friendly Our meal was mixed, I had the smoked wild boar chop which was brilliant (smoked in their own smokehouse). We had a poor baked Alaska and on... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had dinner on 2 nights it was wonderful and so was the weather. The welcome and all service was first class the dog was included with biscuits on offer. One of the reasons for staying here is its location a couple of miles from Windermere but only minutes in a car. Its so good... More

We have just returned from our stay at the wild boar, it was such a good one I felt they deserve the praise, the customer service is brilliant and it would be very difficult to single one person out, we were made to feel a valued customer. The food was also very good, we dinned both nights! the steaks were... More

Went for a Saturday lunch (outside as we were in our walking gear and with the dog), shared a deli board which was delicious and contained meats and fish from their smokehouse. Went back for an evening meal and we were pleased to be able to sit in the Lounge as, again, we had our dog with us. Incredibly efficient... More

Score would have been higher if it wasn't for the breakfast experience. Everything started off very well though. We were travelling up from London and I was concerned that the traffic may make us miss our dinner reservation. I rang the hotel and spoke to a very helpful chap who assured me that the team would sort something out regardless... More

We stayed in a first floor room (No.21) which was quite spacious, with a super-king sized bed, separate seating area, and which overlooked the hotel garden. The room was located in what I'd describe as a small wing off the hotel containing the hotel boardroom and a few other rooms. To access the dining room, lounge & bar required negotiation... More

Celebrated our wedding anniversary with an excellent meal and overnight stay. Smoked fillet is a must for main, never had such a tasty tender steak. Wine a bit pricey though. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Set in a lovely quiet part of the Lake District within easy reach of all the main towns and villages.... More
