We have just spent three nights at this very pleasant hotel whilst on a coach tour of the Lake District organised by Diamond Holidays. We were very happy with the facilities provided by the hotel. Our bedroom was compact but nicely furnished and the en suite bathroom was a very good size. There were plenty of comfortable public areas and... More

Stayed here when on a long weekend coach trip to the lakes. Our room was of a good size and we could see over the town through the round window, although some people said their rooms were small. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless. Our tour operator must have negotiated a good price as the port and... More

I stayed on 13th June. Staff were excellent and very helpful. I just missed the restaurant but they were still able to make some food for me. Relaxing room with free port in it :) Had a great stay. Loved relaxing by the poo and a swim. Thank for for a comfortable and welcoming stay. My only gripe is that... More

Went for Sunday lunch with family & friends to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. To say our experience there was PERFECT is an understatement. What a fantastic time. A lot of places could learn a thing or two from the staff here, we didn't have to ask for a thing, they were attentive, thoughtful & extremely helpful. The food was... More

Stayed 7th - 11th May. Hotel was spotless clean and staff were warm and friendly. Bistro is stunning but definitely more of a restaurant than a bistro. Food was delicious and all home made. Complimentary Presseco and Nibbles were delicious and beautifully presented. Bedroom was very clean lovely king size bed and an amazing amount of complimentary goods provided. My... More

We booked a 2 night stay through wowcher. It was noisy in room 5 on the second floor and it was warm, so we had to sleep with the window open. Noise from nightclub and pub revellers and sirens. I understand new double glazing is being installed in the near future so that will be good. Parking was very tight... More
