My family and I stayed for 3 nights at this charming hotel. Service was outstanding, all the staff were friendly and very helpful in pointing out activities in the area for the children, they even provided them with a little children's pack that had crayons and booklet of activities in them. (It's the little things that always seems to impress... More

Just returned from a 5 night Dinner, B & B stay which was excellent. The staff are indeed friendly and there was nothing wrong with our room. The restaurant was excellent with the taste, presentation and service (thanks John and team) being of a very high standard. I was surprised how few used the excellent restaurant they are really missing... More

When in England please don't expect much! I haven't been in this Ullswater area for 20yrs and after all this time nothing much has changed except there is internet now in these posts. The bathroom in this hotel is basic e.g I haven't been in a hotel which still has hot and cold taps separately. Everything has that stale feel... More

My husband and I spent two nights here for our wedding anniversary. It is a more traditional Lakeland hotel rather than a recently refurbished boutique type place. The room was large and had a lovely view of the lake (it was a superior) and most importantly clean . The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the pub... More

My fourth stay here, usually coupled to a good walk to the top of Helvellyn, but never the same way twice. My wife and I both like this place, but over the four or so years we have been comming here it was starting to look a bit dated. The hotel has a separate A le Carte restaurant if you... More

We had a superior room which was very overpriced. The bathroom was new but the room and furniture were very dated. Breakfast was lacklustre. Whole experience very disappointing. There is a swimming pool.
