Tethera is a room with 3 windows overlooking magnificent views of the lake and hills. The bed is large and comfortable and the only complaint is that the area over the corner housing the tea and coffee is poorly lit. The staff are outstandingly pleasant and helpful and the whole experience is relaxing and satisfying. The food is a real... More

For a special treat we lunched as a couple at restaurant in this hotel. We had heard a great deal about this Michelin starred restaurant and were not disappointed by the food and service. We chose the Taster Lunch Menu and it was a delight.

We received a warm welcome in the car park after driving through the rain to arrive at this hidden gem. Our room was as one would wish for in a privately owned English hotel - had some quirky touches, such as the loo singing after each flush and the handheld shower head on the bath squinting in all directions- and...

The room had been decorated with our very own Christmas tree which was a delightful touch as father christmas needed to visit us down our very own fireplace. The... More

We stayed here last night in the Tethera room, it was absolutely fabulous. We had amazing views over the lake. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived. We were lucky to book the hot tub and a glass of champagne, it was lovely, very hot and beautiful views. We had the 7 course tasting menu with matching wines... More
