I stayed here as part of a group, working in the area. The female receptionist was fantastic, very welcoming, and joined in with our usual "booking in banter" The bar was clean and well presented, though sadly had a very limited choice of pump beer. The majority were bottled...... We thoroughly enjoyed a group meal (14 of us) and we... More

Hello Ian Thank you for your review following your recent visit to the hotel. I'm glad to hear that, on the whole, you enjoyed your stay. I can fully understand your disappointment at the lack of pump ales; however, as we only have a small bar (and an even smaller cellar), we unfortunately have to draw the line somewhere. We... More

Had a meal at lunch time in the conservatory with 3 family members. It was pretty quiet. Good lunch time menu, although a little confusion over gluten free meals, not really clear in menu. Good pleasant staff members, and meal rather good as well. Portions not as large as in some local pubs, but setting and ambience of the place... More

My partner and I stayed the 10th Oct to the 12th, and found the hotel to be close enough to the coast where my family live to make it easy to see everyone, but also close enough to the lakes. The price for 2 nights was very reasonable, especially as it included breakfast. The room was lovely, comfortable and clean,... More

Stopped here for three nights and ate in restaurant. Location great for exploring Western Lakes. Great service like stopping with relatives rather than in a hotel nothing was to much to do. Food and accommodation to a high standard and customer service skills of staff above what you would expect from any top rate hotel.
