He stayed here on a 2 night deal that included dinner and breakfast. The grounds were well appointed and the hotel being set up on a hill looked over the lakes at the bottom. When we booked the hotel we put a note on saying we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my birthday and if possible could we have... More

My husband and I were invited to lunch here by some friends who were hosting a reunion. Our friends' hospitality was superb and we had a wonderful time. Drinks outside were plentiful, relaxed and informal. Lovely! The hotel itself was in an attractive, peaceful location. As we knew, the room would not be ready until after the event, but there...

The process of booking a hotel and being satisfied with the outcome is becoming increasingly less predictable. It is understandable that a Hotel will portray itself in the most complimentary way, but there is a danger that lack of objectivity when describing its benefits and amenities to showcase itself to maximum benefit could result in customers being disappointed. If Hotels... More

Although it was very hot , weather so hot, it was comfortable . You could see that it had been refurbished,... More

We stayed for 2 days on a Travelzoo offer with dinner included both nights. The setting of the grounds and the gardens themselves are lovely and the warm weather afforded the opportunity for sitting outside before and after dinner - the integration of this into your meal is good and they both come to get you once your order is...

Took advantage of DBB offer on a Sunday night-1/2 bottle champagne waiting in room on arrival. Pleasantly sited within easy walking distance of Bowness-either down the hill and along the lakeside walk or on the main road. Large, landscaped gardens overlooking the Lake with big terrace and plenty of seating-perfect for a late afternoon glass of champagne! Very well kept... More

Lovely luxury hotel with a superb restaurant and an inspired and brilliant chef. The hotel is perfect and the restaurant is as good as any high end London restaurant run by any of the "celebrity" chefs.
