Comfortable and clean en-suite room with tea-making facilities and biscuits, but the meals were disappointing. It is in a lovely area, a good centre for exploring the exciting but less well-known western part of Wasdale. Unfortunately we can't recommend the food, which is a shame as the ambience is great. Even the best cook is on a loser with cheap... More

We got the room last minute ( as we often do) on booking.com so paid £55 instead of £90. Based on the price paid this was an excellent deal. Breakfast and service were absolutely spot on. Rooms are functional and comfortable. Hotel very busy and so understandably more noise than some may like. Service very good. Bar was very bust... More

My stay started off reasonably well with my request for a room that wasn't above the bar area being dealt with swiftly and pleasantly. Rooms are compact and the two en-suites I saw were a tight and a bit of a mishmash with shower cubicles only. Dinner was disappointing with over-priced and incorrectly described dishes which were rather basic mass-produced... More

Work colleague and I went in last night for a quick bite to eat. Decided on Home Made Beef Burger, chips and salad. Burger was poor quality meat and didn't appear home made, chips were not nice and quite a number were jet black so I assume they've been stuck in the fryer for some time. Worse to come was... More

A bit dated. Good staff very helpful. Rather expencive. Room was very small. Door to the toilet had a window not very private. Breakfast selection was o/k. Wedding venue was o.k. Bar staff during the evening quoted different prices.

Firstly this is 100% genuine and our experience. We have stayed here recently and have found the hotel although quite small to be a decent old e world country hotel. The room was decent enough with a nice comfortable bed.Breakfast was decent too. Perhaps the hotel could do with a lick of paint or two especially in the entrance foyer... More
