I booked this hotel off the internet and was really pleased. It was for our wedding anniversary. When we arrived our room wasn't quiet ready so we were given complimentary coffee and homemade shortbread in the bar. Our room was lovely over looked the gardens with a view of the lake in the distance. We had our evening meal in... More

Quaint and comfortable. Stayed in the twin room which was spacious and clean. Bathroom was roomy and full of fluffy towels and plenty of toiletries. Breakfast was fantastic with so much to choose from. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Only a few minutes walk to all the attractions/shops/restaurants. The boat trip to Hill top (Beatrix potter) has amazing views and... More

Stayed overnight for my wedding anniversary, found the hotel very clean and the staff only too willing to help. Room 352 on 3rd floor was comfy and clean with a nice view of the lake. Evening meal was tasty and we received a complimentary drink courtesy of the hotel for our anniversary. The hotel situated close to the lake attractions... More

Had a REALLY nice stay at burnside hotel. The bar man was super friendly and went out of his way to help us - we asked for a bucket of ice and some wine glasses delivering to our room. Reception said there would be a £10 charge for the service - had they charged us £10 for delivery of some... More

We checked in for a three night stay for our honeymoon with our dog to be told that we wouldn't be allowed to leave our dog in the room if we weren't in there too. When I asked what we were to do if we wanted to go out (use the spa or a restaurant on the evening) the receptionist... More

Stayed with my husband and seven year old for two nights in room 234 which was a very large family room with a lake view. The hotel is situated in an ideal location a few minutes walk from all the attractions/bars/restaurants. There is quite a steep hill leading up to the hotel which some may find challenging (like me after... More

Summary: unclean 3 star standard. We had reasonable expectations based on the fact that it is a 4 star hotel and some of the ratings. It was a huge disappointment. We will never go back or recommend it. It started out bad as soon as we entered the room. Dreary and dull. We understand the hotel is under renovations. We... More

Room 102 was lovely, clean and recently refurbished. There was no hot water in the morning though. On checking out I found a number of things had been added to our bill which we hadn't had. The receptionist didn't have receipts for the items and was unable to say what the items were. After waiting for about half an hour... More
