Called here on 17 July 2015 for a late dinner reservation for four, and grabbed the last table available. Excellent meal as always, quietly served, and immensely enjoyed. Lovely setting. M6 just a mile away at junction 39. Well worth the detour.

Although the staff were friendly we found this hotel overpriced. There were stains on the bedsheets, the toilet seat was broken and the shower ran hot and cold. The breakfast was lukewarm and when we asked to borrow and iron it came with a blackened surface which left marks on the shirt. I think £60 per night would be a... More

After a very long day walking from Patterdale we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Hotel , reception/bar area very nice and after climbing the impressive staircase we found the room to be very nice with en suite. Food in the evening and breakfast was excellent , would recommend highly

Amazing. After a mix up with my initial booking up the road, the owners booked me in the Greyhound. They even took my bags down, what a lovely pub/hotel and restaurant. After a days walking from Patterdale in driving rain the bath was brilliant. High quality food in the evening, you can eat in the bar or restaurant. Great range... More

Uneven experience as staff was terrific but facility showing age. Dinner was not too good but breakfast was very good. Had problem with shower which was fixed quickly by staff. Bar was comfortable and a good place to visit with other walkers.

Of the entire C2C this was our group's least favorite. The staff if friendly, fun and hard working but the facilities are marginal at best. The bed was comfortable and linens were nice but bathroom was so small and poorly designed that it was almost non functional. We also had no hot water so showering was out, and after a... More

Very disappointed with the tiny shower room attached to a standard room. The bed however was comfortable but the lack of a hairdryer meant going to breakfast with drippy hair. The evening meal was served with a friendly smile but the meal itself was poor.No wine list available and only two reds on offerAt Breakfast the bacon and sausages were... More

Great little hotel and bar - superb for walkers - and for local weekend course like the Smoky Jo's food smoking course. The breakfast is good but could do with updating and the service at breakfast could be better as the staff are courteous but lack the confidence to make you feel that they are focused upon your needs.

We arrived quite late after a long and tiring day on the Coast to Coast walk and were made very welcome. The rooms were spacious, warm and comfortable with enormous beds. Enjoyed the excellent bar meals and were well looked after by Angela and Stacey. At breakfast which was again delicious and substantial, Stacey, despite being very busy still managed... More

Well behaved dogs permitted even in the bedrooms, a big plus on a walking holiday. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the food good. Perhaps it was slightly overpriced for the standard of the room compared to other hotels on our holiday but acceptable. Coast to Coast walkers were thick on the ground so they obviously don't mind dirty boots... More
