Found this hotel through an amazon local deal, fantastic hotel set within stunning views of Ullswater. Impressed with the room we were given, we booked a standard room but were given a water-front view overlooking the stunning gardens. 3 course meal was faultless, and the staff were more than accommodating as were very welcoming and friendly. We requested to eat... More

My husband and I stayed here for our mini-moon in February. We were given a warm welcome on our arrival. The room was fantastic overlooking the fells and lake. The quality of the decoration and soft furnishings was beautiful and sympathetic to the age and style of hotel. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent. We stayed for... More

We stayed here for three nights in April. There are many positives about the hotel - it has a wonderful position on Ullswater; the food in the restaurant is a very high standard; and our room overlooking the lake was both large and comfortable. Sadly, though, our stay was spoilt by disturbed sleep. The trouble is that the Hotel seems... More

The food was excellent for the wedding breakfast. The evening... More

Easily one of the best places I shall ever stay. A marvellous room with a stunning view of the Lake Ullswater and the mountains opposite meant we could enjoy our room from the inside or from the pleasant balcony. The food was superb; chargrilled chicken then a wonderful asiette de chocolate on the first night, rump of lamb with parmentier... More

We frequently visit for Saturday bar lunch and found the menu has changed. On our last visit the beef was not available, the bread was stale and the service was not the same either - particularly the lady at the bar.

Dear JohnNCL Thank you for your review but I'm a little unsure to its content. We haven't changed the menu in the lounge for 12 months. We do so many sandwiches in a day both for afternoon tea and lunch so I am surprised you say the bread was not fresh as I'm sure other people would have had the... More

Visited for a 2 night mid week break for some r & r before our baby is born. Booked a last minute deal online which was great value. Expected bargain basement treatment (happens so often when booked under an offer) but was pleased to find we received fabulous service, a great room and sublime food! We arrived early but the...

We had a weekend at this amazing hotel 21/22nd March and it is now our favourite Lake District destination. From check in to check out it was perfect. We have stayed at other hotels in this family run group, they were all amazing but this was the tops! It's luxurious yet contemporary without the stuffiness of similar hotels. Our recently... More

We stayed for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary on a Travelzoo deal which was excellent value. We stayed in a standard room (No. 26) which was advertised as not having a view and our windows overlooked the roof of the new orangery. However, we could still see the lake to the left and the snow capped hills to... More
