My daughter and I were well looked after in this comfotable and pleasant small hotel in a lovely country setting just outside Lancaster. Our hosts were so helpful and kind, produced pancakes for my daughter though not on the menu and saved me from potential problems next day by identifying a route that would avoid the town centre traffic.

I was extremely dissatisfied with the room , The Valley, that my wife and I had been given at the Scarthwaite . Upon arrival we booked in to the hotel and were immediately aware that the premises were rather chilly. When we were shown our room we noted that there were 2 double radiators and strangely a small fan heater.... More

My wife and I are just ending our long weekend here, had a lovely time, quality and service are both excellent. The only minor issue is the dated decor, but even so it is well maintained and very clean and comfortable. Food is very, very good, and very well presented.

We are a local business and we are often looking for somewhere to book our customers and staff into for a night or two. Our director stayed here a few years ago and found it old and tired with cold showers. We decided to try again this week as it is really very handy for us. Our visitor reported that... More

Myself and my wife were rather bemused by this hotel. We had booked a Sunday lunch for 1.15pm and duly arrived at the venue at 1pm. We enterd the carpark and found about 3 cars parked there, we locked our car and went to the hotel, which had no lights on from what we could see which was rather odd.... More

DrMalc, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We were indeed expecting you on Sunday, and sadly you missed the excellent piece of roast topside of Cumbrian Beef that was on offer. Unfortunately, our chef was unwell on Sunday, so I (the proprietor) was busy standing in for him in the kitchen where we have a very... More

Stayed for one night. Lovely hotel full of character. Room was lovely and clean and bed was clean and comfortable. We were made to feel welcome and the crackling log fire in the bar was just perfect on a cold and rainy night. The baby hares playing in the garden were a delight to watch. Dinner was first class. My... More
