Very well presented hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Had a lovely week there and they also helped out with a special treat for my fiancée. Upgraded to 4 poster bed. Bathroom good size but shower was bit cramped. Lovely room but little noisy with road out front. Hotel has parking which is very handy. Good breakfasts.

Lovely bar area downstairs and lovely breakfast. Parking is... More

We stayed in a deluxe double room for 1 night. found the room to be very nice with a 4 poster bed, room was clean and tidy, breakfast was very nice too. Rate was £77 so for the lakes this was very good value compared to what some are offering. Only issue was the parking to rear is very tight... More

The staff were lovely and attentive so no complaints there. Roomwise they were big and spacious though the bathroom was on the smaller side. The showers arent brilliant if you are tall! The single beds were less comfortable than the doubles but still okay. On the other hand breakfast was superb! There was lots of choice and it was a... More
