Room was basic but clean and comfortable, if a little dated. None of this mattered though as the welcome we received more than made up for any decorative issues. Dinner was excellent and very reasonably priced. Would certainly stay here again for a few nights.

This was our first visit and even though it did state that dogs are welcome we decided that we would see how friendly this time first of all. What a mistake that was, as everything was above our expectations. All staff was... More

We had a 3-night break a couple of weeks ago, taking advantage of a deal which included an evening meal each night. Having stayed and eaten there before, we knew what to expect, and were not disappointed. Lovely comfortable room with a fantastic view of Skiddaw with it's first sprinkling of snow when we awoke on the Saturday. The food... More

Rooms are shabby chic, but... More
