This hotel was amazing. Staff were very attentive and professional, the food amazing, our room with balcony overlooking the snow covered mountains was incrediable. Furnishings in room and bathroom were great. Will be back when we can discover the area in more depth.

This was our first trip to the lake district and we were delighted with our choice of hotel. Beautiful setting, close to both Windermere and Bowness. Comfortable, well appointed rooms, friendly staff and a first class restaurant with great service and staff.

The hotel is in a great location at the top of a hill around 10 mins walk from Windermere centre. It's elevated position gives it great views however could be difficult for those who wish to walk to the hotel, and not drive. The communal areas are beautiful, with an open fire in the lounge area (where dogs are allowed)... More
