We stayed as part of a large party and we all enjoyed a memorable week-end. The food and service were superb. The hotel itself is a lovely old building and that will always require high maintenance, but it still keeps its old dignity. As we were together celebrating with friends,the facilities were perfect the staff were very attentive and obliging... More

Where to begin... First things first, DO NOT STAY HERE! I would honestly have rather slept in my car. Quite how some people think this hotel is worth 5 out of 5 is completely beyond me. I can only assume that they are affiliated with the hotel or still living in the 1940's themselves. It is truly the worst place... More

This hotel was awful. It was dirty and run down from the outside, but that wasn't as bad as inside. It smelled of damp and mould. It was dirty, the mattress had more craters than the moon and the food was terrible. To say I was ripped off with the price would be an understatement. That said, there was ample... More

The hotel is in need of tlc but the staff and food were excellent.The location certainly gets you fit. But the views are worth it. It was comfortable and quiet just what we needed. The drinks were not over priced.

I'm sorry to say this hotel is very scruffy and run down, and badly in need of decoration and maintenance. The owners obviously just don't care about the state of this hotel, which is a real shame because you can tell that it was once a very beautiful, grand house. Peeling paint, rotting windows and 1980's faded chintz decor just... More

We were part of a small group (18) visiting/staying for just two nights, and with some trepidation for we had read previous reviews, most of which I have concluded were pure imagination - the Lakes do that for you! We were warmly greeted by smiling staff on arrival, our rooms had been allocated and the keys were in the doors,... More

Stayed for two nights at The Hydro on a weekend break with 40 friends to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. We were looked after superbly and special thanks must go to Joe who went out of his way to sort out the music and made sure we were happy with everything. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here on a weekend break . The only positive thing I can say about the stay was the pool facilities. When booking the stay the staff were not very knowledgeable. The staff were not very helpful when asking for a later check out the very most that they offered was 30 mins and that seemed... More

Hotel staff are freindly and he bathroom was clean, however the hotel is dated and needs a complete refurbishment, the rooms were what we would expect for our money, at £110 a night we would have been better off in a Pub Inn or a higher end B&B, the windows in the hotel had not been cleaned for some time...
