Although slightly "used" this hotel is exactly what you would expect in that location. Even a complete revamp would not remove its charm !

The location is certainly a plus though it is a bit set back from the lake. The public areas are cleverly divided so that the upper storey which is... More

Stayed here for two nights and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They gave me a free upgrade to a room with a gorgeous view, and at one point when I had problems entering the building at 1am, a staff member very helpfully woke up to let me back in -- amazing!

Arrived here after a long days walking. Nicely appointed rooms. Unprompted a Separate table for 11 people had already been set up in a lovely annex just of the main restaurant for our group. Good menu choice and lovely meals served.

I took my parents here for lunch after we got off the Ullswater Steamer. Initially I was a bit put off by the deco - all very dated and not particularly inviting but the food was great! Lamb shank especially! Delicious!
